How was life without a car? I love to join Molue a lot. Why? If I join a small bus, definitely the conductor will ask you for money and there is no way you could run away. But Molue, you can hang and no one will ask you for money and if anyone should you could tell the person that you’ve not gotten to your destination, and once you get there, you can actually run down while the driver is still on the wheel (baja mo se tun mo rele). The kind of lifestyle I was enjoying and when the whole thing now turn around to be a movie star, I could not get myself in such thing anymore. I decided to make use of Okada (Motorcycle), I love it then, I got myself an helmet even before it was enforce, I love to use it and to avoid people from seeing or noticing me. I can shatter it from Aguda Ogba to Surulere, not until the thing was shattered. To God be the Glory, I got my car, but is very difficult for me to go out without a ride.
I noticed your cares are black, why? Am an African man, I love black, black is nature.
What is your speed limit within town and on the high way? In town, I don’t check it but I drive slowly. When am on the highway, I don’t drive beyond 80km/h, even people tell me to move, I will tell them not to worry cause anything can happen to the tyres or the car itself and I won’t be able to control myself.
What is your take on Auto Insurance? In this part of the world, what is most important, we don’t give in attention. Generally, in black nation, we don’t believe insurance, which is very bad unlike the western countries; they believe insurance is very important. Anything can happen to us at any time, anything can happen to what we put together. We don’t believe in accident, we don’t take it serious, we only put prayers. A friend of mine so much believes in insurance. I was in his car when armed robber took away his car and he was like Femi, Femi, don’t fight and they took away the Astoria Jeep, and before you know it, he came up with another one, I asked why? And he said he did comprehensive insurance. Insurance is very good and we should take it serious.
Are your cars insured? Everything is comprehensive insured.
The vital part of your car, how often do you check it before setting out? Firstly, I make sure the tyres are well tight, I check my radiator water, I check the oil and I make sure is there and well gauge, I check the gear oil, then I warm my car for about 3-4 mins.
