5 Types Of People You Meet At A Typical Nigerian Buka (Mama Put)

Being a bachelor has taken me to several
kinds of iya Amina, Embassy, Mama Bee and
other local canteens in Osogbo, so i felt i had
to share my experience of various kind of
people i meet:
1. The Oppressors:
These type of people are often very fat, they
sit down and the girls come down to them to
take their order, you hear stuffs like;
“4 wraps of pounded yam with egusi, put
panla, ponmo, ogunfe, assorted and meat, with
cold stout and bottle water”.
N.B: all the meats, fish, ponmos, assorted are
brought in several plates for them to eat as
much as possible.
2. The Voracious eater:
These set of people are normally slim, and
unlike the oppressors, they go to order their
food, you can recognize them when you hear;
“madam give me 8 fufu, no 10 cos i never
chop since morning, 3meat, 2ponmo, orobo
coke (50cl) and 2 pure water”.
3. The Acagons:
Na these ones tire me pass, they are the
downgraded versions of the voracious eater,
and they are well known by the madam. They
believe in quantity over quality, you will hear;
“iya bisi give me as usual, and the madam
puts 9 wraps of fufu with 1 lean meat”
NB: this set are the only ones that don’t order
for water, they prefer the one on the table,
used for washing hand”.
4. The formers:
These ones are mostly hated by the acagons
and they are mostly a group of young girls
sponsored by a maga. You will see there table
filled with all sorts of meats, fish, ponmos,
assorted and several chilled drinks, only for
them to eat part of it and leave the rest to the
feasting eyes of the acagon and voracious
eater. After they leave, you start hearing
comments especially from the acagons like ”
haaaaa embarassed, ota aje ni awon omo yii
o ( this girls are enemy of money o).
5. Father xmas:
This list is not complete without them, they
are the popular ones in the hood, the acagons
and voracious eater always pray to meet them
in the canteen. If he enters, you start hearing
“baba agbalagba, chairman, i remain loyal sir”
and he never dissapoints them too.
Feel free to add yours!!!!!!!!!!!
