A Cinderella Story:
Sidi/Tokunbo, the Prince of Aiyetoro Town Version
Sidi ran from home to Aiyetoro Town after long mistreatment by her father’s new wife, Iya Ibeji.
Sidi ran into Laide accidentally but then apologises for bumping into Laide.
Laide gladly accepted her apology and asked, “Odabi’n stranger ni’e ni Town wa yi?” (It seems you’re a stranger in this town?)
Sidi confirmed her doubt and replied, “Beni.”
Sidi then takes the opportunity to inform Laide that she doesn’t have a shelter to live in the Town. She tells Laide the story of how Iya Ibeji, her father’s wife maltreated her after she lost her mother to BREAST CANCER.
In short, Laide takes Sidi to her mother’s shack, who is an Osun worshipper.
Mama Osun saw that Sidi is an honest child, she joyfully accepts her and vows to take care of Sidi just like her own child.
That was the first day of the best days of Sidi’s life.
On a cool evening, Laide and Sidi were really bored due to power outage and there was no fuel in the generator so they could see an interesting Yoruba movie on Africa Magic Yoruba.
Laide and Sidi then decide to take a stroll around the town due to boredom.
Sidi was a pretty gentlewoman who every man could change for.
The youth in Aiyetoro Town won’t take their eyes off Sidi because she was well pleased to be looked upon. Including Waheed and his buddies who are already planning on how to woo her.
Laide, being a protective friend, didn’t let any of them come close to Sidi because she knows none of the youths not even Waheed and his pals has good intentions towards Sidi.
After a long walk around the town, they decide to head back home.
On their way home, they met an incredibly gorgeous looking young man who is in his late 20s. Laide recognised him as the King’s son who just arrived from the United States. Laide slightly bent to greet him as he was on the phone speaking with someone at the other end.
To be continued.
