Maltina Fail!

Maltina...nourishment for life.
That's the slogan that follows this Nigerian malt drink.
But I came across this nasty error in an unopened maltina bottle.
Was it a prank or someone in the factory was just plain careless?

What where they thinkin' ?

Saw this signboard near the abandoned bridge and road construction at Sango Ota, Ogun State. It's a fan club for a local yoruba musician called 'Pasuma'. What amused me is the dumb idea of putting an American flag in the background behind the artiste's picture. What's with the 'American visa lottery' mentality?

Anybody have an idea who a 'Saw Doctor' is? Seems kind of odd to me.

Where there is weed, there is a warning...

I couldn't help catching this picture on my way from church one sunday. Obviously this location used to be a joint for weed smokers as you can see the warning sign printed on the shop by its owner - "Nobody should smoke Igbo here!" lol...'Igbo' is weed in Nigerian parlance.

Police & Thief

In the western world the kids call the game 'cops and robbers'
but here in Nigeria, the kids call it 'police and thief'.
Here's a police officer and a suspect in action on the streets of Lagos.

*NB. - I don't own this snapshot

Edible Sanitary Pad??

I don't know about other countries, but this sanitary pad is probably the most famous amongst sanitary pads in Nigeria. It's become so popular that the word 'always' could be used to refer to any other brand of sanitary pad. When ever you hear the word 'Always' here in Nigeria, the first thing that comes to your mind is this product, which is also an international brand.

You can then imagine my shock when I came across this chocolate wafer below also called 'Always'!
Are these guys playing a joke or just being dumb about selecting a brand name for their product?
Seriously, I found it hard enjoying this wafer without thinking that I was munching on a sanitary napkin!

Familiar Diet...

Allow me to introduce you to one of the staple diets of an average Nigerian bachelor!
Agege bread and 'tea'.

Don't worry if the 'tea' is actually a chocolate drink. As long as its brown, can take milk and sugar, it gets labelled as 'tea'!

What do you make of this photo?  
Oh...I do not own it before you get any funny ideas that I like snapping freaks or clowns

Too Wong Foo, That's not you!

I like catching interesting shots. That's why while I was at the after party of the burial ceremony of a colleague's Dad, I saw this odd looking couple doing this funny dance.

I decided to snap them since I didn't have enough battery to film the hilarious moves.

I thought the chick danced the funniest until she turned to face the camera and I noticed she looked odd.

It wasn't until she came close to another of my colleagues who was seated nearby that I noticed she was actually a dude - a transvestite! My colleague was feaked and she jumped out of her chair, just in time for me to catch the shot.

I made to catch more shots but my battery went dead. I'm still wondering whether this cross dresser was for real or just a joke. It's not a common thing in these parts unlike the western world.

Holiday Capture

Warri, the capital of the waterside region of delta state doesn't have much to look at on my visit there. I was on the look out on my short termed visit. I even thought I might see signs of the militants but there was nothing of the sort.

The town looked so peaceful, you'd doubt that there was anything serious happening in the creeks.

However I did get to snap this photo of a wedding invitation of one of the leaders of the youths leading the 'struggle'. Now you've got to be loaded to fly your wedding invite on a billboard!

I don't know if he's a militant or just a youth leader during the inter tribal war. But the words on this second board got me wondering. It reads just below his name, Hon. Ayirimi Emami - 'the unrepentant defender of the youths'

Either its a wrong use of word but the word 'Unrepentant' there rather sounds negative doesn't it? 

Well I did manage to catch 2 nice pics in warri - one of my sweet 7 month old daughter in a cute pose and another of her grinning  with her mouth stuffed with cake!

Oh...and a happy new year to you all!
