In my last post, I casually mentioned how Cakes and I were invited to attend the CAF Awards. Btw, for non-africans and people like me who aren't into football, CAF stands for Confederation of African Football. Anyways, because our friend invited us and her other friends, she had a table reserved. She herself was unable to attend, but she had someone watching out for her friends, to make sure we had the table to ourselves.
Cakes and I got there first, so there was no hassle. However, before long, random people were trying to come and sit at the table. My friend's assistant did a good job of making sure nobody sat there... until the live broadcast started. Since we were all supposed to be sitting down, he sat on the sidelines and before he knew it, 2 guys had come and sat on our table. These guys were VERY confident too o, because they came, smiled at Cakes and I, introduced themselves and helped themselves to the drinks on the table. I really thought they were supposed to be with us because of their casual ease. A few minutes later, my friend's assistant comes to ask me who the guys are... but at this point, it seemed like her other invited guests were coming late, so we shrugged it off. At that moment, Chee gets on stage to sing... And then I think she got to the table 30 minutes later.
Maybe 15 minutes after Chee comes to sit, I see some lady walk to our table and sit across from me. The thing is, she had turned in the chair, so I didn't recognize her at first. That, plus my friend's assistant and one of the awards show hostesses were arguing about whether the lady could sit there or not. The assistant was thisclose to getting a security guard to escort the lady out, but Chee stepped in and said she could stay, until the other invited guests showed up. Then Chee proceeds to say hello to her, and that's when I recognize her - she's a VERY POPULAR Nigerian actress. I don't want to say her name, but she's NOT Genevieve or Omotola and she's married without kids. And she's not Uche Jombo either.
Here's what struck me - her verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry delayed reaction to Chee's greeting. She bent her head, looking at Chee as if she was trying to understand why on earth Chee would say anything to her, and then she goes, very breathily, "Hi" through heavy eyes. And I thought to myself - THIS CHICK IS HIGH! I quickly sent a message to my family (I was gisting them about the show, while my mum watched the live broadcast).
My mum's response: Oh, her? She's always on something.
My dad's response: She's a very badly behaved actress. She's not a good role model at all. Can't she see Beyonce? (lol, my dad REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEALLY likes Beyonce, for the record)
Apparently, this actress is usually under the influence, so I shouldn't have been surprised. But it was my first time of seeing her, and I was just disgusted. I wish the camera had shown me shooting daggers at her with my eyes. Can you imagine, when one of the invited guests finally arrived, Madam Highctress had the nerve to put her purse on one chair to say that someone is seating there?!?! I'm like "Excuse me, you're not even supposed to be on our table!" Okay, I didn't say it out loud, but I was just annoyed. She eventually moved to another table to go and flirt with some old man - she was laughing and hugging him, batting her heavy eyelids at him. *hiss*
There is no moral of the story apart from DON'T DO DRUGS, especially in front of me, because I will write about it.
