GABRIEL OG­BECHIE ON A HIGH

THISDAY - - LOUD WHISPERS -

This is my lord. I like the man too much even though he can­not dance to save his life. At the open­ing of The Hamil­ton, my new Joint nes­tled some­where in Lekki, he came with his ever so beau­ti­ful wife Go­drey and im­me­di­ately started frown­ing. I ask my Oga hope no prob­lem, he said he was ok. He or­dered for fish and stared eat­ing all the while frown­ing. I asked Go­drey wetin do Oga, she whispered in my ear say, oga no sabi dance that nah him style be that. He will just put up a frown so that no­body will ask him to dance. Kai, you see this kind style well the evening was not for danc­ing and as soon as Gabriel un­der­stood that, he re­laxed and be­came the life of the party. To­day is not for his non-ex­is­tent danc­ing skill but to con­grat­u­late him for emerg­ing Down­stream Man of the year at the an­nual Oil trad­ing and lo­gis­tics con­fer­ence of the In­dus­try. Mr. Og­bechie has built his firm Rain Oil with just N30,000 to a multi­bil­lion Naira con­cern em­ploy­ing thou­sands of Nige­ri­ans and con­tribut­ing sig­nif­i­cantly to the growth of the econ­omy. You see why we are so close. This is a shout out to him even as I wish him more suc­cess in coming years. But go learn how to dance o be­cause the way you are go­ing dem go soon in­vite you to Buck­ing­ham Palace to be knighted by the Queen and you may have to dance with her. No be frown­ing go solve the mat­ter. God bless you sir.
