The Prognosticator Episode 4



We walked in to a nearby nairabet shop. I almost fainted with what i saw, because it was my first time of entering any gambling shop, the shop was well furnished with plasma tv, alot of monitors, couch, Ox fan and alot of advertisements poster were pasted on the wall. The place is too crowded, o boi naija guys no dey work ni? Or is bank sited here? I said to myself*** .

CNN: guy shey you go play? .

Me: You mean nairabet? .

CNN: No ludo game .

Me: i don’t know how to play it oo, maybe next time, you will have to teach me. .

***Baba o, Baba agbalagba (Elderly man) The king of gambling, Baba na you oh, even after you, na you, Baba i dove my hat for you oo. Baba wetin dey for the boys nah? Wetin you bring for us nah? Na you we dey wait for since morning o, The king of gambling himself. The people keep hailing O.J the guy that just walked him, (The guy name is OJO so O.J Is abbreviation of OJO ) baba shey na goal goal you wan give us or over two point five (over 2.5 ) we are fully ready oo, they keep hailing O.J .

This guy must be guru for this game o, see as they keep hailing him like celebrity, if dem born him well let him meet me at playstation center. Him go hear am, i thought within myself*** .

O.J: Thank you my guys, you just made my day, and i will also make your week by given you just seven odd (7 odd) . *** People continued shouting, some people started jumping up, i can see joy in their faces*** .

O.J: Like i always said, your father is poor, your mother is poor, you are not an okada (bike) rider, you are not a bus conductor, you are not playing nairabet and you always bought new jean trouser and shirt during this baba buhari Regime, my friend you must be a thief. .

*** This O.J guy must be mad oo, must i played nairabet before i can buy new wears?*** .

Me: CNN what’s the meaning of (7 odd?) .

Cnn: Don’t ask me yet, let O.j give us the game first, i will explain latter. .

*** omo ale! B—–d!*** .

As O.j continued his sermon, one damsel beautiful lady walked in to the nairabet shop, dressed in a simple pink gown and pair of sandals. Her hair, thought undone but was neatly packed, her face was a little oily and her legs too, she greeted us and say please where can i charge my phone? She asked nobody in particular, i quickly moved closer to her, collected her phone plunged it to unoccupied socket beside my seat, i later discovered her name was “DUPE” – more story about dupe later.- .

O.J: As you all know that am a diehard Arsenal fan but this week it is not matter of my club, let me tell you the fact this ongoing Euro 2016 is full of supprise you won’t believe – unless you watched it , “Iceland” is my banker this, you know “Iceland” is playing “England” kindly play “Iceland” straight win, That is my seven (7 odd) for this week, best of luck to you guys . *** People started betting with huge amounts, some bet it with 5k, 7k, 15, CNN also bet it with 5k .

Phone vibrated, its message mtn with their vexatious messages, i will check it later i said to myself*** .

Me: CNN oya tell me, what is the meaning of seven odd? .

CNN: seven odd means seven cool thousand naira #7,000 .

Me: I don’t understand .

CNN : ok, “Iceland” was given 7 odd, it means if you stake “Iceland” with #1,000, if “Iceland” win the game/match against “England” you will collect #8,000 so #7,000 is your gain, if you play it with #2,000 you will collected 16k so 14k will be your gain .

Me: Cool business .

CNN: Yeah! Very cool business .

*** Phone rings , it was my mum calling*** .

Me: Hello ma .

Mum: Hello how are you? .

Me: I’m fine ma .

Mum: Have you seen the alert? .

***oh its true, i called her 3days back, requesting for Jamb fee*** .

Me: Actually i received one message about 5min ago, but i havent check it either its alert or not, i will get back to you after confirmation ma .

Mum: Ok take care bye .

Me: Bye ma
