- Did you realize, there are 265 bones in the human body. How would you like one more?
- Hey I'm looking for treasure. Can I look around your chest?
- Do you know what people are saying behind your back? Nice ass

I had seen the Tyler Perry's movie and I loved it. It was sad, but it was lovely. When I heard of the Nigerian adaptation of the stage play, I was excited. I was looking forward to the stage play in Lagos. How exactly was it going to be adapted to a Nigerian background and all.
I went with a couple of friends to see it.
Apart from the one hour delay at the beginning, it went well. Everyone just kept applauding Funke Akindele anytime she said one word or just danced across the stage.lol
I had only seen Oreka Godis on Ebonylife's Love Lounge as a host so I didn't know what to expect from her, thus I was blown away by her part. Her twerking!! Watch out Miley!
I kept trying to make the play go with the movie, but it didn't exactly work out. My friend who had read the original stage play explained to me that, Tyler Perry's movie was an adaptation as well, and he had made a story and some characters along the way. So I gave up trying to make the play go along with the movie, and just let myself open up and enjoy it. And I was glad I did.
Memorable parts/quotes from the play
- Oreka Godis's twerking
- They almost made it to sexy, but omo, almost doesn't count.(Yellow- Oreka Godis) on how the other girls on matric night were posing.
- I used to live in the world, till I moved to Lagos (haha, where is Lagos, planet Mars?lol)
- Ade Laoye's voice...throughout!
- Diana Yekini's tap dance. Wasn't expecting it. Was blown away. She had the whole tailcoat to go along with it!
- Osas Ighodaro had a certain grace about her that I loved.
- I couldn't stand being black and sad , its so redundant. (Orange. Funke Akindele) I remember hearing that line in the movie and it still hits me.
- Someone almost walked away with me, inside a plastic bag. (Green - Bikiya GD)
From the movie, Green played by Loretta Devine was my favorite story. It just rings true of how an event or a person can replace you with a bitter person. Like what have you done with me? And its just a reminder to me and you not to let anyone or any event walk away with you. You are the greatest gift you own. Hang on to you.
Who went to see the play?
What was your memorable moments?
Whose story do you connect with most?

I've been interested in pole dance/fitness for sometime and after taking classes, I finally got my own pole.Yay! Still deciding on a name for it. Idris is among the top contenders, alongside Felix.lol. Decided to share my love for pole and let people know I'm into pole dance/fitness, essentially coming out of the closet with dps, whatsapp, instagram, Facebook. I've always wondered what lay waiting outside the closet. What would people think or say? Would they think I'm a stripper, or at least lose. I mean I may be scantily clad (well that's because the body is a better grip on the pole than cloth) and dance provocatively.
Well these are what I've found outside the closet-
Girls: "I want to learn! I'm jealous"
Encouragement along those lines.
There are different responses from guys.
Guy1: Wow, your boyfriend is so lucky
Guy 2: So when will you come and show me what you can do? A private show
Guy 3: I hear it's quite the workout.
Haven't got the bashing I quite expected, and hopefully I don't :-)
By the way, any votes for pole name?
