Can't get enough of myself
Got mail from a lady I'd never met, It did my ego a world of good. 'Ori mi wu o, e la gi mo (My head swells, Hit me with a stick- Roof Top MCs)
My name is Aderinsola and by the nature of my job (public relations) I get to see the papers everyday & I get to read your 'Girl Whisperer' once in a while. I was particularly amused by the thoroughbred theory and I thought you were another specie male trying to accuse us of what you turned us into.
By the way, I am not a thoroughbred in the sense of your categorization because I defend myself when necessary & never leaves it to anyone to do for me except the big man upstairs.
You know what? That is not the reasopn for this mail. I saw V-monologues at the MUSON on 14th & my heart stopped. It was beautiful. I missed it last year because I was working in a TV station & couldn't see it. But I'm glad I got to see this Nigerian story you directed. Thanks Wole for making my year. I kept raving about it to all my girlfriends & I will by God's grace see it again next time.
At some point I had to question where the actresses got their lines because they were simply magical & magnetic. But when I heard you were the Director, I said 'ah the thoroughbred man.'
Your cast was beautiful & I particularly like the way the V-word was flying around without being obsene.
The star of the night for me was Omonor especially in the trafficked girl's monologue. The lines took me deep into the soul of a trafficked girl. I also loved Ashionye's monologue on maintenance culture even though she was talking more to herself in her monologue on the woman who dared to fight back (that's the category I truly belong).
Kate Henshaw's monologue on women who had ruled in the past was really inspiring and I would have really loved Funmi Iyanda's monologue on 'The Woman Died' but she didn't deliver it well in my opinion (no offence intended please).
On the whole, I left the Agip recital hall of MUSON Centre that day fulfilled, proud, and overwhelmed with the fact that I am a woman and that I've got power that should be used to better the world. Thanks for this special gift. See you again next year. God bless you.
