So I asked my readers/fans/friends to pay tribute to me. Their opinions range from the mundane to the downright ridiculous. Here are the most profound paragraphs that made the cut. Enjoy!

Gottfried is the type of man to knock a passenger in a moving bus and run away after.

Mr. Easy life. He doesn’t like stress at all. Dad was sure he was so lazy, he wouldn’t be able to make it to high school. There were mornings when everyone would be hustling and bustling to get to school, but Ragwo had shut down. His system will remain on hibernate and he’d sleep for at least three days. It was his own way of factory reset though, to be able to continue his journey on mad Earth.

Witty. Funny. Sarcastic as hell. Kind. Honest. Says it as it is. Always open to learning. Loving. A shoulder to lean on when you need it.

Gottfried is like Channel 4; full of independent programs of minority interest. He doesn’t find favor in the eyes of all, but by Christ, he’s splashed like hell. Thriving in the face of conflict and being at peace in the midst of controversy.

Gottfried is a talented, focused, smart, free-thinker. He’s also a bully, likes mild trouble and women codedly. He’s not as open-minded as he’d like to think. He is an arse!

Gottfried’s kind is rare – you know I still ponder on whoever taunts people just so they could be free with him, that was really a great approach to getting into my thick skin. Your sense of humor is one of a kind and that alone is worthy of my time.

I remember I heard of an incident from school, where a message was sent to your mum that you were sick. She hurried down, only to see you in the football field shouting at the top of your voice… “PASS THE BALL!!! PASS THE BALL!” She came closer, then called your name. Legend has it that the look on your face that day has never been seen again!

Dude is brutal in words and calm in actions. Whenever he compliments you, enjoy the nice words while it lasts because you don’t know what the next minute holds. However, deep down in his left auricle, there’s a soft spot that makes you forget how annoying he can be.

Of course, you might not agree with everything. Also if yours didn’t make the cut, feel free to write yours in the comments.

If you still can’t see them, I deleted itπŸ’€

  2. It’s one and the same person, right? Gottfried, Ebuka, Mr. Easy, Mr. Lazy, don’t know if this is a part of the names – Ragwo, the advocate, a good Nigerian friend, a visionary, … did I miss any. Oh, of course banter/sarcasm master. Must add, Special.
    Loved your blog the first day I found it. Sometimes though I wonder what’s going on in that head. Keep it coming. 😎😍✌🏾

      1. Oh, my bad for forgetting the most important of them all, right? Like that you make it a small β€˜g.’ I hope folks realize that it’s another of your banter and not misconstrue it. Take 2: God’s Peace, and all the above. ✌🏾
