“Monkey”

Monkey Communication

It was resumption time at the Nigerian Law School, Abuja, and registration was ongoing. Leo and his friends were on the line when he noticed the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.

Adamma was in the company of her friends, Glory and Ekene, and she could not but notice Leo’s eyes all over her. She turned to Glory and said, “Why is this monkey staring? At this stage of our lives we are looking for husbands not monkeys.” Leo passed by the ladies and said hi, but they did not answer him.

A few days later, Leo and his friends saw Adamma at the cafeteria. Leo paid for her meal, but she did not acknowledge him or say thank you; she just walked away.

The following week, Leo saw her again on the road to the auditorium. He walked up to her and tried to create a conversation, but Adamma was neither rude nor polite.

The following day, a lecturer walked into the auditorium and announced the name of a top politician’s son. “Your attention is needed outside.”

That was how Adamma got to know Leo’s surname. As she saw him stand up and walk outside, her disposition changed. She told her friends that she was going to walk up to him after the lecture and talk to him. Glory and Ekene advised her to give it two days, so it would not be too obvious.

Soon, Leo and Adamma were dating. They were going strong and he was spoiling her with all kinds of gifts and things money could buy. They were the toast of the campus. Just a few months into their relationship, Leo proposed to Adamma with a lovely diamond ring which she showed off to anyone who cared to see.

One day, Adamma and Ekene got into a big quarrel and started exchanging words and trading insults. In the process, Ekene mentioned how Adamma used to call Leo “monkey” before she got to know whose son he was and started loving him. Nearly everyone in the hostel that day heard them quarrel, and in no time gist had reached Leo that Adamma used to call him “monkey” before she knew who his father was.

Adamma quickly rushed to explain to him that she did not know who he was at that time.

  • Leo is faced with the question, “Is it that she did not know who I was, or she did not know who my father was?
  • He does not know now if it’s true love. Will the love Adamma professes stand the test of time?
  • Leo does not understand how a “monkey” became the love of her life

Adamma has not done anything wrong as far as he can see in their relationship; she is the perfect girlfriend. Should he continue with their marriage plans?

If you were Leo, would you go ahead to marry Adamma?

Please advise him.

  1. Adamma is just being a girl. Girls say alot of things about their toasters. Just as guys do to girls they may be checking out. Leo shouldnt take all the monkey talk he heard from a girlish quarel get to him. Its absolutely normal for girls to say such thngs. The way leo and adamma feel about themselves now is what matters. Afterall, whats wrong with loving his status and money alongside. Common babes and wives in the house, wont you prefer your man to be wealthier than he is now? And would you like to be penalized for wanting wealth? Just my opinion though

  2. I TOLD MY DAUGHTERS IF THEY EVER INTRODUCE A BOY TO ME AS THE SON OF WHATEVER I WILL DRIVE BOTH OF THEM OUT OF MY HOUSE
    EVERY LADY SHOULD LOOK FOR AN HONEST HARD WORKING BOY FOR MARRIAGE
    WE DON’T HAVE VALUES AGAIN THAT’S WHY THERE’S NO HAPPINESS IN MOST MARRIAGES.

    • I agree with you vincent. But remember that there are guys your daugthers may meet that dont need to work so had to be wealthy. Their parents may have done all the working hard and have now left all the enjoyment to thier son. Having wealth do not mean laziness or irresponsibility and doesnt mean that girls or probably your daughter shouldnt fall in love with such a bloak. Yeah some marriages didnt even take place because of inadequate funds. Happiness too far sef. Smiles.

  3. Since she is willing to be Mrs. Monkey…no biggie. It will be hard for him to find a girl who will not love him for his money. That is d burden of d wealthy. If he were a christian he cld pray for God to reveal her true character. But for now, let him enjoy d monkey love

  4. Haba, but this one is a no-brainer now. The girl felt zero attraction to the guy from the get-go and there is no evidence from the story that she began to feel any real affection for him later. The only reason she started even talking to him was when she found out whose son he was. There is nothing wrong with dating a guy with means but there is everything wrong with dating a guy ONLY because he has means! I also strongly believe that as a lady you should be more interested in the guy’s inherent and demonstrated ability to GENERATE new wealth, and not simply spend the wealth that just happens to be available to him as a matter of circumstance. Also remember that political position/power are very transient indeed!

  5. MY OWN OPINION: As women we are often faced with this situation. When there is a guy interested in us, there is the tendency to size him up. Gone are the days of attraction and love without money. The problem is that we may be making a mistake when we size guys up.
    Also, we cannot smile at every guy that says hi; that could send a wrong signal.
    As for guys these days in Naija, love and money go together. You cannot separate the two. You were monkey before but now you are rich, trust me, you are the love of her life. You need to prove her love for you. How you’re going to do it I don’t know o, just try and make sure you test her love.
