It didnâ€™t look very good when self-acclaimed Area Fada, Charly Boy, hopped out of a taxi at the Muritala Muhammed International Airport last Thursday.
Yes, we know heâ€™s now based in Abuja but is rolling in cabs part of the unpredictability that goes with the brand?
He could have done better than ride in the conventional yellow and black painted taxi to the airport. If his Lagos based wife, Lady Di couldnâ€™t drop him off at the airport for one reason or the other, what happened to his business associates?
Couldnâ€™t anyone sacrifice his/her car and driver to convey publisher and musician CB to the airport? Or what about calling any of the brand new air conditioned corporate cabs?
The taxi, a Passat Wagon was marked XR582LND. CB alighted in front of the airport spotting a white singlet over blue jeans with a white towel dangling from his jean pocket. Time was 1.15pm.
Two male escorts followed; one with dread locks carrying his bag and another his file. He was chewing his signature gum and his black boots looked unpolished. He didnâ€™t waste time before disappearing into the local wing of the airport perhaps to board a flight to return to his base.
Someone needs to pay some attention to this area model.
