The bachelor’s life was easy…
Wait, let me rephrase that.
The bachelor’s life for Tobi Ademi was easy.
As the third richest man in Nigeria, all he
had to worry about was making more money
and avoiding his nagging mother.
Every morning, he woke up in his 160 million
naira mansion, and went for his morning run
around his 75 billion naira estate in Lekki.
After his run, he always made a smoothie,
and he never failed to add a little bit of
brandy to it.
Then he would go to work, without having
breakfast. After work, he would have lunch,
sometimes with his best and only friend or
sometimes in the office when the paperwork
was too much.
After work, he would go back home,
sometimes with a hot model clinging to his
arm, or sometimes alone.
On Saturdays, he hung out at any of his
many clubs or at the Quillox Club playing
golf; sometimes he was visited by his
mother with a young girl behind her. The
ageing woman hoped that her son would fall
for any of the women she brought to his
So you see, Tobi had a routine, and one that
wasn’t to be broken, especially not by a
nagging wife. He was in control of
everything, and that was exactly how he
“Guy, I’m going to be late, again, because of
you.” Tobi complained as loud as he could
while trying to ignore the screaming children
in the background.
“Patience is a virtue you lack.” Joseph
Joseph was Tobi’s childhood and only
friend. They attended the same schools all
the way from nursery to university. Now, he
was Tobi’s only friend and lawyer.
“Well, forcing crying children to get ready
for school isn’t something worth my
patience.” Tobi retorted.
“So this is why my children hate you.”
Joseph mumbled loud enough for Tobi to
hear while he struggled with his son, trying
to make the five year old put on his shoes.
“You two should get going or you’ll be late.”
Joseph’s wife, Dera, walked in all dressed
up for work in a green dress that ended just
above her knees.
“You’ll be able to manage?” Joseph asked
struggling with his tie not noticing Tobi roll
“They are my children, so obviously yes.
Now go, before Tobi kills us both.” She joked
while helping her husband with his tie.
“Nice to see you too Dee.” Tobi said
sarcastically with a hint of humour in his
“I can’t wait for you to get a new car.” Tobi
said as they exited the house. “You’ll
definitely miss my company.” Joseph
“I prefer my silence.” Tobi replied dryly.
“Don’t forget to get the milk hun!” They
heard Dera call from inside. “I won’t!”
“Yet they ask why I’m not married.” Tobi
muttered as he started the car.
“See, this is why you have no friends, except
for the fact that I decided to pity you by
giving me mine, you always say the wrong
things.” Joseph pointed out.
“What did I say wrong?” Tobi asked with a
“Tell me, what’s wrong with marriage now?”
“Everything. You’re limited to one woman,
you have no silence, women talk too much,
expect too much and nag too much.” Tobi
shrugged nonchalantly.1+January 9, 2018 at 11:18 am #1159019

“What about kids?” Joseph asked curiously.
“What about them?” Tobi asked with his
eyes focused on the road.
“Don’t you want any?” Joseph narrowed his
eyes at him.
“Yeah I guess. It would be nice to have a
little girl. I would have adopted but Mama
won’t agree.” Tobi grumbled.
“Ha! Mama! How is she? Did she come last
Saturday?” Joseph burst into laughter.
“It’s not funny jare. She came with this fat
short woman who kept on ogling me. She
was smiling so hard I’m sure her jaw was
hurting.” Tobi complained pulling up into the
parking lot. Joseph’s law firm was just
opposite his gigantic office building.
“You have to give that woman a grandchild
before she does something you hate more
than ugly girls.” Joseph said.
“I know, I know.” Tobi agreed while raising
his hands up in surrender and they both
walked into his office building. They ignored
the greetings of the workers who made way
for them as quickly as they could.
“It’s not like you can pay someone to have
your baby or anything.” Joseph joked.
“Why not?” Tobi said seriously and turned to
his friend with a mischievous glint in his
eyes. “You’re a genius.” He smiled broadly.
“And you’re joking.” Joseph said rolling his
“We’ll talk later. Why are you following me
anyway? Your office is across the street.”
Tobi asked as they stepped into the
“I know.” Joseph replied dryly. “I want to
see Muna about something.” He added,
secretly thankful that his friend had dropped
“Who’s that?” Tobi asked furthering his
“She’s the head of your Law department. Do
you even know your employees?” Joseph
asked as they walked towards Tobi’s office.
“I have over a million all over Africa… so
no.” Tobi boasted and acknowledged Funmi,
“Show off.” Joseph grumbled.
Funmi was not the typical secretary. She
was in her late thirties, married with four
kids and almost overweight; yet Tobi
preferred her to any skinny bimbo. She was
efficient and loyal. Just what he needed.
“She’s in there.” Funmi stopped him
gesturing towards his office door. “Who?”
Tobi asked startled.
“Eniola. She came. I couldn’t stop her. Said
she brought you breakfast.” Funmi explained
Tobi nodded and Joseph had an amused
smile on his face.
“Eniola? Who’s she?” Joseph asked with a
“Met her at an award ceremony. Now she
won’t take a hint and leave me alone.” Tobi
gave an exasperated sigh.
“Still don’t want to get married shay.”
“Nope. Can’t stick to one woman.” Tobi
said. Joseph opened his mouth to speak but
was interrupted by the sound of Tobi’s
Eniola balanced expertly on a pair of
stilettos. She was wearing a turquoise
coloured jumpsuit and flashed a smile
seductively at Tobi who in return, have her a
strained smile. She was the daughter of the
Oba of Lagos, and nobody wanted to piss
off the Oba.
“Hey hun.” She purred touching his tie. “I
brought you breakfast, your favourite. Yam
and egg sauce.” She smiled pulling him in
before he could utter a world in protest.
When the door was shut, Funmi chuckled
and returned to her desk and Joseph smiled
in amusement. He turned to leave but
reversed as an afterthought
“Wait. What’s his favourite? ” He asked
before leaving.2+January 9, 2018 at 3:20 pm #1159109ⓞⓝⓔⓐⓛ32Member

Funmi looked up from her laptop and said
with a smile, “Spaghetti Bolognese.”
Tobi stood impatiently outside the KFC
restaurant just a few blocks away from his
office. He ignored the excited stares from
passersby and the suggestive stares of the
women. He was waiting for Joseph so they
could have lunch together, but the latter
was held up at court.
He couldn’t stop thinking about what Joseph
said earlier. Any woman would want to have
his baby, and for the right price too. Why
didn’t he think about it before?
His thoughts were interrupted by a lady who
was arguing with the staff of the restaurant.
She wore a faded red dress with flip flops
and her ebony black hair was packed but
had strands falling out.
She was beautiful.
Class-less, yes, but beautiful anyway. He
didn’t realise when he was smiling obviously
amused. She wasn’t exactly his type of
woman, but he couldn’t stop staring.
She sat down on a chair with a scowl on her
face. A man came to talk to her and she
glared at him but he didn’t seem to take the
Without thinking, Tobi walked into the
restaurant and towards her. Before he could
say anything, she stood up and planted a
kiss on his cheek.
“There you are! Why did you keep me
waiting?” She said then turned to glare at
the man. The man looked away with a frown
“Sorry.” The lady turned to him with a shy
smile. “I was trying to get rid of him. I told
him to leave me alone but he just kept on
talking and talking and argh.” She explained
Joseph walked in with confusion written
across his face and Tobi replied with a
“You have a little lipstick, on your-” She
pointed to his cheek and he chuckled. “No
worries.” He said pulling out a handkerchief.
“I need to go to the restroom.” Joseph
whispered and left.
The girl sat down and brought out her
purse. She brought out a notebook and
some bills and started writing some things
down. He sat down with her and she looked
at him with a raised eyebrow.
“I said sorry. You can leave now.” She said
dismissing him with her hand.
“I want to sit here. Keep this seat for me
while I order.” He said ignoring her
He returned with a plate of Jollof rice and
chicken and sat down with her, ignoring the
scowl on her face.
Her stomach grumbled but he pretended not
to notice. “Would you like some?” He
offered. “I can’t eat it all alone.” He lied.
“Then you shouldn’t have bought it. I’m
fine.” She snapped although her gaze
lingered at the plate of food longer than it
was supposed to. She looked back at her
notebook with a serious expression, counting
money and writing some things down.
“So, what are you doing?” He asked
“None of your business. Go seat somewhere
else. I’m already having a bad day.” She
said without looking up.
“Anything I can help with?” He offered with a
smile tugging at his lips before taking a
huge bite from his chicken. She fought the
urge to look up at his food.
“If you can get me a job, then yes.” She
murmured but he heard her.
Breathing in nervously, he said, “You need a
job? I have a job for you.” She finally looked
at him suspiciously.
“What kind?” She asked and he gave her his
Ademi Group of Companies.

Her face went pale. She had no idea she
was talking to the Tobi Ademi. How could
she be so stupid? His face was everywhere.
His name was in every business you could
think of. She pretended not to recognize the
name and looked at him.
“I’ll be there on Monday morning.” She
“Just show them the card, they’ll let you see
me.” He replied with a cheeky smile.
“Thank you.” She stood up to leave, and as
an afterthought, she picked a drumstick from
his place and bit into it. He looked at her
with a raised eyebrow and an amused smile.
“What? You said I could have some!” She
said with her mouth full before she walked
Joseph walked up to the table and sat
down, placing his tray of food gently on the
table. “What was that all about?” He asked
before taking a spoon of Fried rice.
“She’s perfect.” Tobi stated still gazing at
the door even if she had left a moment ago.
“For what? Your wife?” Joseph asked
hopefully and Tobi stared at him as if he
had grown two heads.
“No you idiot. To have my baby.” Tobi said
nonchalantly as though it was a normal
“Where is this going?” Joseph asked
carefully. “You didn’t actually take me
seriously… did you?” Joseph asked in an
“I actually did. I’ve got it all planned out.
See, it’s simple. No woman would refuse an
offer to get pregnant for me.” Tobi pointed
out with a smug smile.
“Any woman who wants to hold on to her
virtue would.” Joseph argued.
“Oh but virtue can be bought, at the right
price.” Tobi said still smiling. He looked like
a little boy who got an A in his math test.
“No woman would reject that kind of offer,
especially when there’s 40 million naira on
the line.” Tobi added.
“40m! Are you crazy?” Joseph exclaimed.
“No. Just brilliant.” Tobi shrugged. Joseph
looked at his friend and was convinced he
needed to be checked out.
“We’ll sign a contract. She gives me my
baby. She’ll get 40 million. That girl needs
money desperately. She’ll totally jump at my
offer.” Tobi’s grin grew wider but Joseph
just started at him in surprise.
“And which stupid lawyer is going to draw
up that kind of contract?” Joseph asked with
a raised eyebrow as they stood up to leave.
“You, obviously.” Tobi stated and walked
“So when would you start drawing up the
contract.” Tobi asked Joseph. They were
seated in his car, on their way to Joseph’s
“As your friend, and lawyer, I would like to
sincerely advice you against this very foolish
act.” Joseph stated seriously.
“Just give me an answer.” Tobi snapped and
Joseph rolled his eyes.
“I’ll get started alright. Just mail me the
details.” Joseph grunted. He was still very
opposed to the idea.
They pulled up in front of his house and he
kept his laptop inside his briefcase before
stepping out. “Did you get the milk?” Tobi
called after him.
Joseph groaned. “Oh shit.”
Abena walked into the huge building feeling
completely out of place. She was wearing a
pair of black pant trousers and a short
sleeved blue button up shirt. She was
already sweating because the company was
far from where she lived and she had to
enter three buses to get there.2+January 10, 2018 at 7:36 am #1159378kingsabintoMember
