I strolled into Slot Systems to check the prices of phones.
I just wanted to stay updated to keep playing my role as Chief Phone consultant to friends who ask me, “Leroi, I have 30k, which phone with 500 gig Ram, 1 Terabyte storage space and 5000 Megapixel camera should I buy?”
Infinix ran to me with a smile on her face, “Welcome, you are here to see me again, aren’t you?”
I frowned and pushed her aside.
“What is the matter? She asked in shock.
“Don’t talk to me! You know what you have done, you and I have some beef to settle. ”
Tecno called out to me, smiling, “Hi handsome, I am here for you, come over”
“Stay in your lane, please! I have suffered enough in your hands!” I retorted.
I spotted Apple iPhone seated at her table with heavy makeup on her face. As usual, pride and haughtiness were written all over her.
She stared at me.
I stared back.
She made a funny face and averted her eyes, and I walked past her.
Samsung grabbed my arm and pulled me over to her side.
“I am not interested, you are old school” I said and moved away.
Itel gave me a wink. “Come over, I will treat you right”
I shook my head, “No! I heard you are a big problem”
The beautiful Oppo waved at me, “Hi, can you come over?”
“Uhmm…well, I am still getting to know you…maybe, I will see you some other time” I said to her.
Huawei beckoned to me with her right arm, “I am the best, let’s be friends”
I stood, reflecting on her offer and then shrugged, “Well, let’s keep our options open…”
As I gazed around, I saw a cute lady with pink lips and dreamy eyes tapped gave me a playful kick and said,
“Follow me, I am Xiaomi but you can call me Redmi”
My head was swollen with pride as the top phone brands in Nigeria struggled for my attention.
“Oh, redmi, I have heard so much about you! Give me your phone number so that I can call you later for us to talk and get to know more about each other.” I appealed, handing over my phone to her.
As Redmi took my phone to type her number, my phone suddenly went off.
I turned around in anger and stepped up to Infinix.
“Why did you do that?” I questioned.
Infinix smiled and began to sing,
“I am stuck on you
I’ve got this feeling down deep in my soul that I just can’t lose…”
She kept singing the Lionel Richie song and Xiaomi walked away.
Guys, I strolled out of the place with my head held high, basking in being chased by the top phone brands in Nigeria.
