Inspiring Change Through Literature and Media
I love tying gele these days for that “Madame” effect. It’s a matter of cash you know. This story is for your Saturday delight. Enjoy it!
MEET THE MADAME
My name is Aduke Cole. Madame Aduke Cole to be precise. And here is my ‘Profile’:
Average height (about 5 ft. 2 in. ),
12 up, 14 down,
Curvy in all the right places– thanks to my lovely daughter; but not fat (*winks.),
Detailed to a fault (meticulous),
Exceptionally smart (scammers, please take note… you can’t play me- OK?),
Busy body tendencies,
Proud wife of Akanni Adekanbi Cole– the cutest and most wonderful guy in the whole wide world. And I totally adore him. Blessed with an adorable daughter named Adora. And the list goes on and on… and on…
Never mind, you will learn more about me as my narrative unfolds.
ATTENTION: CALL ME ‘MADAME’:
But you can call me ‘Madame Aduke‘, or simply ‘Madame‘ for short. The underscore is intended. Please read my lips…
A note of warning before I go on: God bless you if you call me by name. If I hear ‘Aduke’ from your mouth hen?… Hmmmm you are on your own o. Do not say I did not warn you.
The title ‘Madame‘ DOES NOT come easy you know: I earned mine through the little tears, sweat and hard work of my few months experience as a Small Business Operator in anticipation of the much tears, sweat and labour growing a Fortune 500 company from the scratch would definitely require. Especially in an economy like ours. But for God’s grace that is.
Definitely, you will get my drift as time goes on.
In any case, I am ‘Madame’ and that’s what I love to be called.
When you are large you are large – whether you already are or someday will be!
Having clarified that, it is also noteworthy that the title ‘Madame‘ could also open doors for you and put you in my good books provided you know how to use it well.
For instance, my close friends know the right button to press when they need my attention. Usually, all they do is hail me and chant my praises by giving me my ‘oriki‘ (i.e. title or eulogy) the way I really love…
