I’m sure you thought I forgot your birthday. LOL but you know that is not possible? August 5th is a date that has been stuck in my head for as long as I can remember! I woke up early sef just to write this, couldn’t sleep haha. HAPPY BIRTHDAY KOSKOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The bestest best friend ever! We’ve come such a loooooooooooong way, and I’m so so thankful to God for our friendship. Like I can confidently say that no one in this world knows me as well as you do! I mean, we’ve known each other for almost 15 years now! We actually need to set a date that we can be using for our anniversary! Godddd, Kosi you’re a handful! I remember when you and your Mommy would tease and tease me about when my breasts were going to grow, and when they finally grew a little (we give glory to God), both of you up till today have never let me rest! I also remember when you gave that Moses boy my number in exchange for the MoHits CD he bought you. Hahaha I hate you honestly! You and all those your ‘friends’; Moses, Igho, IK from church, the other man from St. Raphael’s harvest, Idy super fly.. Lmaoo I just hate you mehn. I remember your Rufus phase and all those your MANY MANY other boyfriends, whose names I can’t even remember cuz you’ve had so damn many cuz you’re too damn hot!
You’re one friend that I know has my back, 24/7, all day every day, forever and ever and ever and ever! I actually see you as my immediate elder sister, after Ekene- no, actually, I see you as my younger sister, because if I have to keep disciplining you very well to ensure you don’t go wayward >_> I remember how happy you were when I told you about Aniekeme; your face was like Christmas! Hahaha, I know it took me a whole 15 years to actually like somebody but you needed to chill abeg; it wasn’t that big a deal. And I also remember how you disturbed and disturbedddd me about the other ‘him’ and how I was in love with him and blah blah blah (but I was not thoughhh). I actually thank God everyday that that chapter of my life is closed LOL. Now I can quote my lyrics in peace without you DM-ing me everytime to ask if I was talking about him mschewww (Waiiiiit. Come to think of it, you actually STILL do that -___-). Also, can you stop disturbing me about my first kiss? Ahn ahn, are my lips your own?? LOL. It’s going to come in the bext time, and best believe it’s going to be with either Harry Styles or Zayn Malik from One Direction!!! ^__^ And I’ve already told you that it has been revealed to me that my tall, cute, God-fearing future doctor boyfriend is coming from wherever he has been hiding next year; that’s the person I’m going to marry. If you like, be laughing there or be thinking I’m jonzing myself, I will just surparaisikwa all of you next year loool
Kosi, you’re such a BEAUTIFUL young lady, and you are sooo HOT, it’s a problem! You’re sooo funny, sooo damn annoying, so mature, so full of life, the best dancer! (I remember all the dancing competitions you beat me in, especially the one at MY OWN GRANDMA’s birthday party. The fact that my own relatives voted for you and not me shows how much of a good dancer you are! But don’t worry, with these my new azonto skills shaaa, I go show you pepper B-) loool). You’re God-fearing, caring, like you’re going to be the most amazing mother! But best believe we’re going to raise your daughters together because Aunty Chioma is not going to allow them to start having boyfriend at age 10 -__- . You’re so responsible and so so reliable! You’re one person I know I can whatsapp/call at anytime to rant about something or seek advice because 1) I know you’ll still be awake bc you’re a nightcrawler and 2) You’re my best friend. Mehn Kosi, we’re actually sisters sha. Remember that day you called me, like I was on my way to class. I had to go back to call my momsi to tell her immediately! Like the thought of you going through all that stress was just too heartbreaking! I couldn’t focus throughout that day (Btw, I hate Chief sooo much, probably more than you hate him sef. Mschew stupid man). I can’t wait for Christmas! We’re going to run Lagos togerra LOL Waaiiiit, I hope you’re not going to the village as usual oh :|||
I love you so so so so so much bebi, and I hope your day has been going well so far! I’m going to try to look for a way to call… but you know my data plan does not let me make international calls. So I’ll probably tell my mommy to call me when she gets home so I can talk to you then. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGAIN MY SWEERART!!! I love you and I miss you sooooooooooooo much!!!! P.S. We need to take more pictures, unlike the throwback struggle ones above LOL.



I love birthdays because they create the opportunity for us to feel super special for at least one day in a year… so here I am, trying to say Happy Burrthday to yew in a speshull way. Happy Birthday Gogz!!!!!!! Happy Birthdayyyy! Happy Birthdayyyyyyyyyy!
Gogowe, tbh I never expected that we’d be as close as we got, seeing as we were only “hi” guys till like SS2 or so. And I actually don’t know what it was that brought us together? Was it government and history classes or..? Oh no no no, it all began one random day in SS2 that I randomly came to your dorm after night cap. Me, you, Chioma and Francisca now giiisted and giiisted, and I guess things just took off from there 🙂 Well, I’m super grateful to God for that random day bc that was the start of one of my most cherished friendships.
Gogz you’re actually such a wonderful friend, and an awesome gist partner! It’s actually so hilarious how I’ll give you gist and you will not sohj to accept it, you’ll just be like “hayy it’s a lie Chioma. Haba she couldnt have done that” Haha it’s so nice how you choose to believe the best of people/give them the benefit of a doubt.
I even remember the first time we “fought”. That was at that prefects meeting about locking the gate early or something (LOL see the nonsense LJC made us argue about) but I think we made up like that same day sef. And one thing that’s weird is I don’t think I can ever get angry at you, like never. And you’re one friend that I know that I’ll defend to the grave, like even if we fight today and never talk again, I’m too sure that if somebody tells me something bad about you, I will defeeeend ehn, even if I don’t have facts, I will argue and argue that Ugochukwu could never have done that lol. I just feel like I owe you that because of how good of a friend you’ve been over these past few years. I remember during my semi-gap year when I started off very depressed about being a unilag student and full-time housegirl at the same time, you were actually ALWAYS there to comfort me or make me laugh or feel better, and I really reallyyy appreciate you for that Gogz. We used to bbm all the time, skypee, everything. I actually can’t exactly pinpoint what changed but I guess we both just got busy? And when we were drifting apart, I never even realised at first. And then, guys even started asking me “Chioma, are you and Ugo still guys-guys?” or “Are you still her twinnie?” and all that, that was when I kind of began to notice little stuff like ohhh we haven’t skyped in ages or even talked on the phone in weeks… but yet, I still recognize(d) you as one of my best friends. Cause I feel like a friendship like ours does not rely on skype calls or whatever to remain intact.
And then, “things got awkward” and I heard stuff like you didn’t trust me but me I was like it don’t marra whether it’s true or not cause either way, you remain my nigga 4 lyfe, and then that our whole twitter misunderstanding lool, but we remained twinnies. I was really happy you called me to clear stuff up, and even though I felt as though there were more things you might have wanted to clarify than you did that night and though things aren’t exactly-exactly-exactly like before, I’m just so happy that you’ve made that effort to keep our friendship. I looove it when you send me your songs and stuff, cause it just makes me so happy to see your dreams actually becoming reality! Like I get excited like I AM Gogofierce! You need to see the way I make my family to watch your videos/listen to your covers , and I’ve watched you and Ugo’s Beneath Your Beautiful a gooood number of times that I must have probably unconsciously learnt your mannerisms in the video LOL. And when I say I’m so proud of you, I mean it a 100%, like Ugo, they actually ain’t ready for what you’re about to bring to the music industry. They ain’tttttt!
Gogowe, you are gorgeous, smart, so caring, so full of life and energy! Like you could brighten up a room by just walking in (#OmalichaLifestyle), and you are sooooo funnyyyy (I’m not arguing with you abeg, you KNOW yaa funny)! You are a very special person with a pure heart! I love you so so so much and I hope that you’ve been having a good day so far! I pray that we remains friends forever cuz girl, I gotchu! And I pray that the Lord continues to bless you and keep you, and may He guide your path and shield you from all evil and disappointments in life! Happy Birthday twinnie! I love you xx

P.S. We need to take more pictures together, like the only ones we have are struggle ones hahaha

And then JS2, we were best friends, and then you messed that up. Well, sucks to be you, cuz I was the bestest best friend ever. LOL what am I writing though? Happy Birthday Moji!!!!! I actually love you so so much and I know you know that. I love how we might not talk for ages, and then when one of us calls the other, we just talk like we were just in ljc yesterday, and we giiist and giiist for hours! I remember all those our table days with Ron, Frenx, Van and KOFSSSS! Hahahahah yo I’m actually laughing out loud. Kofsss of lifeee!

Happy Birthday My-Best-Friend ^_^

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIEASTIX! The bestest best friend in the world. People be hating on us all the damn time tho but they just jealous. B-) Kiearr, thank you for always being there for me, always calling to check up on me, making me laugh by being your razz self. LOL nahh Kiea you’re actually crazy. I remember when you just got your iPhone and then you automatically became an apple salesman. The way you used to marvel at the speed of the 4G and how you got my mentions so quickly and Siri and everything, loooool you’re crayy crayyy! Tbh, I never knew we’d actually become mainest guys like this. I remember when you were class prefect in JS1 and you always used to write my name for names of noisemakers. Ohhh God I just wanted to box you and put you inside wasco this boy. And then all those times I just did not like you because I thought you liked forming “mature-mature’. Hahahah God I’m daft tho. Anyways, it all started by me famzing you and you ignoring me and inwardly groaning when I called you “My best friend” instead of Kiea. And Kieastix, you know me I like to famz, but I don’t think I’ve ever famzed somebody like I famzed you. Hah! I persevereddd. Every strategy I tried to use on you, you backfired it. Tell me hi in the morning when I come to class, mba. Ordinary to turn back when I call your name, no; I had to call you three times or more fust. But me I did not give up oh, Idk what was driving me but I told myself this Kiea must be my friend whether he likes it or not. And I’m actually so happy I kept famzing because Kiea you’re one of the most amazing people I know. Kiea of life, Epelle for da London gyal dem, Swagga daddyyy! You’re so selfless, awesome, mature, hilarious, everything na you oh. And Kiea you’re soooo responsible, like everytime I’m describing you to someone, that’s something I ALWAYS stress. Like you know when it’s time to play and when to be serious. Should I have written a poem or something for you instead of this because I feel like my thoughts are too disjointed? You know what? Imma just do a track for you when I come over. I give you the grand honour of making the beats. I think the world is finally ready to handle my rap skills. CHIOMIZZLE ON THE MIC AND KD ON THE BEAT!! Hayy can you feel the swaguu already? Kieurr plx do fast and come back so we can discuss thursday’s VD as usual. But naaah you slay me tho, you’re like THE most passionate person ever when it comes to all these shows. LOL these shows are taking over our lives! 😦
Anyways, Happy Birthday again my best friend!!!!!!! As you turn 19 today,you berra cut those wingx you been growing cuz you be feeling too fly these days, not telling me about your plans and shii. If not, imma keep leaving all those my shouting voicemails. Hahahah Kiea you’ve actually suffered in my hand sha loool I’m so sorryyy! I pray that God continues to bless you and keep you from all harm, may His hand continue to guide you in the right path and may you grow in knowledge, understanding and virtue. I wish you success, long life, happiness, good health, and I pray that all your heart’s desires may be fulfilled. Happy Birthday Gurrrrrl! Lol have lotsss of fun tonight! #CheatingBoy #DangerUnlimited #RockiesOnRockiesUponRockies Haha lahv ya! Xx
