APRIL 17TH...its kinda hard to forget the day u almost died

April 17th would always be one I’ll remember, no its not my birthday….it is rather my friend Layo’s birthday and the day that would have been my last (no kiddin’) …if not for God. So it started out all nicely I had exams, I was pretty hungry afterwards, went to whitehouse….hung out with a couple of friends…. N then went to ozone and met another friend we got talking and all….yada yada yada…..so one things leads to another and we are on our way to Maryland to get some stuff at compu village … me and 3 other people…neways you know the funniest thing ever…this my friend is probably one of the very few people that has been able to describe my personality and get it to the tee but that’s by the way..so…everything in me said..laide! just go to the hostel and rest…but I ignored the voice within… and on our way to Maryland I was like what if we have an accident now..and m like tufiakwa! God forbid..and my friend says to me,,, if u rscared about something n you think about it too much it will happen….but I just brushed it aside.

We get to Maryland, stop over at sweet sensation…the owner of the car and his friend needed to pee in sweet sensation…while I watch for my friend so he could park the car, or rather jeep properly. He gets into the jeep and then reverses into the road and hits a bullion van….and me am shocked like wtf just happened..and expect one kain crazy scene..cause m thinking..bullion van - police escorts… I wasnt even allowed to finish my thoughts properly when the jeep just came forward and hit me….fuck! okay now heres the part where I think it was God…. U know all those gates that fold..well dey had them at sweet sensation…so somehow I dnt know..cant remember getting in between the gates in such a way that I was sandwiched by them….so the car sandwiched me in between the gates and a car behind me…. Hit us together……GBAM!...spoils the gates..
Lemme use this diagram to explain


->I me I<-




LMAO…. Cause most peeps don’t understand…

The first arrow is the jeep
Then first I is a gate
Then me
The second I is the gate behind me
and the last arrow is another car behind me and the gate

The jeep hits all of us together……
















I know the first thing I thought was..FUCK! wat just happened..one minute I was standing there the next minute am hit….and all I tot was… if he wants me to live, he’ll get the fucking car off me NOW!... I don’t know who brought me out…but I figured nothing happened to my eyes cause I could still see..all I knew was blood was dripping from someone above my eyes..my forehead or my scalp … so one of the peeps I came with takes me behind sweet sensation to wash the wound….and gave me a hankie to apply to it….the hankie was soaked with blood in seconds..neways there were alotta people there saying sorry yada yada yada…then this woman probably a manger from SS..comes n starts shouting why did they bring me there, yall r gonna lose ur job…so I told my friend I wanted to leave that place..as I stood up I knew something was missing, my bb…. I shouted! WHERE’S MY PHONE? Lol…luckily I found it on the table..PHEW! I no trust anybody cause they wont hesitate to even rob me in my condition.
I was feeling sorta dizzy n didn’t wnt to get a concussion so I really wanted to get medical attention, finally that same dude with me got me a cab n we looked for a hospital around..the cab driver was just taking us in a circle n I was feeling weaker and weaker twas at that point I called my brother… just incase..so at least he’ll know where I was… finally got to this private clinic..yeye looking place and they r like 9k for just registration.nt for treating me ooooh…neways we decide to go to general hospital but am like lets just get to a pharmacy and do something about the blood first..so metropark was just right beside it…n there’s a med plus there...at this point I had to be carried…cause the same gate that probably made sure the car didn’t hit me …also injured me..my feet had bruises and where twice its original size..the right one still aches till now… and my thighs, especially the right thigh..…I couldn’t walk..the pain was maddening…my shoulders too…and my hands….crazy…so the owner of the car…who happens to b a medical student in Romania(don’t blame me he kept saying it)…helps me clean my wound along with my brother’s girlfriend….. n they all take me to general hospital.

Them doctors there are just a bunch of heartless mo fo’s yes I said it..neways some evil nurse says she has to shave the hair at the part where the deep gash is… and she shaves more than she is supposed to… I couldn’t tell whether she had hair or not…neways after which they take me to this really annoying female doctor who stitches the wound..damn twas painful..but I endured.. I asked if I could get an xray and the bitch squeezed her face like… like hell u can… and right now am angry and am like… see ehn am not like al those patients who don’t ask questions and probe… thass how person will leave hospital and gaan collapse somewhere not my portion sha…. I sha gave her a piece of my mind..cause i hate people with attitude..am I the cause of your problem? Is it not ur job…They still didn’t let me do the xray don’t blame dem sha….cause their services r free they r having brain touch…

My mom was at the hospital now she didn’t say much sha….but I knw she was thinking heaven and hell… “where did this wan carry her head to that she got hit”…….. what didn’t people ask me “where u in the same car with Da grin(b4 he died), where u on okada (people asked this one the most)..wetin una don turn me into..okada mama?.....”where you tweet-walking” …..”Where you using you bb and crossing the road” ….lol…so yall know now!!! Na jeje I stand.
I learnt a lot from this experience, I thank God it wasn’t fatal, I thank God for saving me because it was a very serious accident..i mean the impact was mad and if the gate wasn’t infront of me..there would have been nothing to protect my body…but I had not so serious injuries… I thank God because he was merciful, because he said it wasn’t my time, and he wanted me to learn from the experience. I thank Him for the gift of life….which I cherish..
It also made me think about life after death, if I died, where would I have gone..not heaven…. And that was like a wake up call… letting me know I need to get my spiritual life intact.
And it also taught me that it takes just a second for everything to end..just one second…one minute I was ok, the next I was spilling blood from my head.
And also that life’s short…so short… u never know what will happen next…so enjoy every minute, cherish it and don’t wait for a NDE..live life like tmrw aint guaranteed…take chances do what u gata do….cause life is short…..live a fulfilled life.
And lastly listen to that voice within…cause I know if I had… the only accident I would have had is running into a door in my hostel.

A week after the accident i was in the vicinity not near the accident site per se but i started but breathe faster than usual when i remembered it.... plus i just couldnt get the accident from my mind for a while..everytime i close my eyes i see the car hitting me... n i imagine all sorts... but thank God

But thank God for everything…..and thank yall…for the love, care and concern shown to me after the accident. God bless yall….
May the good lord guide and protect us, May he see us through this year and May we not be the victims of any Accident. May he guide our going out and coming in…and all our activities this year….and cover each and every one of us with the blood of Jesus. Death will not be our portion this year in Jesus name.
