“OG! It’s plenty! Hundred! Your face show, your shoe sef shine, Olohun, e full ground now.” With both hands lifted, Ade jokingly hails his friend in greeting.

“Now you’re talking! Plus, let me tell you, things like convocation rice hunt are part of the courses you have to take back to back as an undergraduate. If we don’t do it now, when else are we going to do it?”

“Okay now. I don tell the two freshers wey dey my room say make dem no go snooze o. Cos na who snooze go loose.”
“You are doing well. We can’t allow these very important traditions to die, yunno; we have to pass them on to each set by informing and actively working with them, so they can master these traditions well enough to be able to pass them on to those coming after them.”
“Sensational! But on a more serious note, you’re right. We must keep the traditions alive so as not to incur the wrath of the gods, my guy.”
“You mean the gods of festivities?”
