Govie just burst at 10:22pm on Friday night, i asked, oboy! una just dey close he said yes. He came to discuss some music and career talks with me and left. Before i gone to Itire (awoyaya) to take àgbó iba because i have to be in good health for Saturday trip. Met some sex-talkers at the àgbó joint, this one talk dirty than i do, then i came to the bus stop to buy slips.
I couldn’t find sleep all night, don’t know if i was thinking too much about the journey or its one of those nights that sleep would decide to go on an impromptu strike. Was just rolling upadan until alarm rang at 5:30am. Fiaaam, i jumped up and go take my bath and entered mosque to pray. Our Waka was scheduled for 6am and i don’t want to be the delayer. 6:05 i was already on the bus to Ojuelegba, just for James to tell me that “i will tell you when we are our way”, my head flew out. I had to stand at Ojuelegba for more than 2hours.
I waka go barracks, waka come back, read newspapers, counting vehicles on the road. I then saw a white bus and my spirit told me its the bus i have been waiting for, i left the news stand to Union bank hoping that James would call to tell me where to meet with the group. I heard nothing until i called to ask if the bus was coming from Osun to pick us and go back to Osun, James now said “cum and meet us Maryland/Anthony”, e be like sey make i dey go back house ni, i kiakia took bike and meet with the bus, James just dey beg, and i was looking like see this slim boy, i wee just break you..lol
Ojota was our next stop where we picked the only man wearing shirt at Ojota “Toyosi Soil”, Kofo, and other guys. Then the journey begins.
8:36am we moved officially outta Lagos. Worship, praises and prayers started raining, we praying for safe journey, nobody wan die. After prayer wetin remain, first of all “introduction”, we all introduces ourselves, names, work, etc but i forgot to let them know that “I’m a Hustler”. Witches are always afraid of sands, that’s why we ate sandwiches after praying, as belle don strong small wetin remain na play, music rolls in, gist begins, debate, argument, the bus was turned inside down with lotta fun. We had to stop at Ibadan to pick Sami.
Traveling on Nigeria roads can’t give you any good memories, and going to Osun state seems to be like the worst because i couldn’t pick anything on my way. Its like nothing on or along the road to keep as a memory, maybe i didn’t notice. Thank God for the friends on the bus, we kept ourselves alive all through.
Person wey ask for road no dey miss road: we almost missed the entrance to Erin Ijesha Town, thanks to the police officer that showed us the way in and we all enter inside.
Erin Ijesha, Olumirin Waterfalls here we come. Everybody leg don gonpa, we have to do some stretching, sort the entrance tickets, then set for the tour.
*About Erin Ijesha (Wikipedia)
Erin-Ijesha Waterfalls (also known as Olumirin waterfalls) is located in Erin-Ijesha. It is a tourist attraction located in Oriade local government area, Osun State, Nigeria. The waterfalls was discovered in 1140 AD by one of the daughters of Oduduwa. However, according to The Nation,”Olumirin waterfall was discovered by hunters in 1140 AD”. The fall features seven floors, on top of which the village Abake is located.
I quickly take a shower at fall on the first floor before moving on to the climbing. It wasn’t easy but it was fun, we got to the top, yeah we did. Unfortunately i couldn’t get to Abake Village except our hero of the day “Sami Tunji” who cum with determinations to reach the upstairs village. It took more than 2hours to and fro, so its not an easy something at all.
We start our shower officially as Belz Expressions, Kane stand still with their cameras to ensure we are all pictured and seized the memories. We ate our rice with joy, drink some water and juice, merry.
Few minutes passed 5pm we departed Erin Ijesha Town to Lagos and we arrived Lagos at 10:+pm.
