Adanna walked nervously into the TV station,she kept praying in her mind that all goes well and that this interview will help boost the traffic on her blog. She hastened her steps as she saw all lady who was waving at her to come over and who she later discovered was the production staff. After exchanging pleasantries with each other she was led to room backstage and soon after a makeup artist came along.
While she was having her makeup done,she was also being briefed about what to expect in the interview and also the sitting arrangements plus camera angles. After a while,the talk show’s host walked in and smiling at her he said
“Hi,am Tony Shogo ,its really nice seeing you in person,and I hope you have been treated well since you arrived?”
“Yes,your staff has been wonderful to me”
“Okay then,I guess I will see you in half an hour when the show starts. So just relax yourself and enjoy the comfort the station has offered” he said as he gave her a slight nod and left the room.
“Hello ladies and gentlemen you are welcome to yet another exciting episode of the Tony’s show. Today promises to be a blast with all the latest celebrity gossip that happened all thorough the week and also we have with us in the studio today the brain behind one of fastest growing websites in Nigeria, you know her blog as like Adanna dot com but today you get to me
Adanna herself please stay while we go for a quick commercial break”
With her heart pounding, Adanna sat backstage listening to Tony and also waiting for when it will be time for her interview.
“At this junction my audience,its time to bring out our guest for tonight who no other but the beautiful and talented Adanna Kombol ,do give her a round of applause”
With shaking legs and with each step that seem to be her last,she walked out on stage,weaved at the audience and sat down beside Tony.
“Good evening and welcome to the Tony’s show,you look incredible”
“Okay,so the whole world knows you as Adanna the blogger and I know there is more to you than that so tell us a little about Adanna the lady?”
“Okay, well am Adanna Kombol ,am married and have been for two years now,tho next month will make it three. I am a graduate and errm I like to
cook and I like listening to music”
“Wow,okay so who is your favourite musician?”
“Yeah we probably know that he is always in the top five spot whenever you update your playlist for your favourite songs of the week.
on, what inspired you to start your blog?”
Well,a lot of factors led to it,like I was going through a lot of challenges in my life at that particular time and I needed an outlet to just let it all out and also to connect with people who were probably going through the same thing or those that have been able to overcome such
obstacles in life. Also I had reached a point where I had a lot of negativity surrounding me and I just need a more positive vibe you know,like I just want to be genuinely happy,I mean like just get that internal peace and all”
“Wow,that’s interesting to know, so tell is there anything you fear in life?
” failure,like am so scared of it sometimes am afraid of doing or starting something tho am working on it,am hoping that in a short while I will be able to over come such fear”.
“Okay,one last question before we round this up, what is your advice to people out there especially young people who are trying to start something up?”
“My advice to people is to first of all find their purpose in life. I mean once you know your purpose then you can navigate through it and then excel in life. Have it in mind that it will be best to draw closer to God if you
are a Christian or Allah if you are a Muslim, that is try to seek spiritual help when trying to find your purpose in life because once you find your purpose every other thing will just flow.
“That was deep,thanks again for being on the program today, ladies and gentlemen we have been having a chat with the brain behind popular website like adanna dot com, Adanna Kombol. Please do make sure to check her blog for heart whelming, positive and also inspirational stories. At this junction I will like to to thank my producers and also you my viewer for making this show a success, do have a great weekend and I will be back next week to give you another exciting show. Goodnight.”
After the show,she went backstage and took pictures with fans. When she was through she headed to the dressing room to get her things and when she walked in she noticed a bouquet of flowers with a note from Adams congratulating her on the success of her interview,she felt tears threatening to pour but she was so happy within just knowing that he had not forgotten about it and also that fact that he was the first person who even congratulated her really touched her heart. He had not used the fact that they were not on speaking terms ever since that prank he pulled at her house some weeks back as an excuse just made her feel like she has been wrong for keeping him at arm’s length. The fact that even her husband who she was trying desperately to save their marriage had not even remembered about the interview but then again he seem to be forgetting a lot of things this past few weeks,he looks troubled but whenever she asked him about it,he always replied that he was fine and that everything was okay.
Adams sat in his hotel room contemplating whether to call Adanna or not,he had watched her interview earlier and wanted to commend her for how good she looked and how she answered the questions thrown at her but he couldn’t just go through with the call. He wondered if she had seen the flowers he sent,maybe they arrived too late and she did not get them because she had not try to reach out to him. He decided to give it a few hours,maybe he will call her later in the evening.
“Hey babe am home” Samuel said as he walked into the kitchen where Adanna was by the sink cleaning up.
“Welcome back dear,hope you had a nice day in the office today?”
“I sure did and everyone kept complementing me about my intelligent and extremely beautiful wife, congrats on your bae”[B] he said as he wrapped his hands around her waist from behind.
[B] “Why don’t you just leave what you are doing right now and go upstairs and freshen up,I need to take my intelligent wife out for a treat to night” he whispered into her ears.
“Am almost through just give me five minute top,lemme just wipe everything clean” she replied
“Okay then you have five minutes and nothing more” giving her peck he walked out of the kitchen.
Samuel and Adanna walked into Stories hand in hand and proceeded to the VIP area and as soon as they had settled down and placed their order Samuel’s
phone rang. He checked the caller ID and seeing it was Kylie who was calling he decided to ignore the call. When Adanna asked why,he said it was work and since the night was about her he wouldn’t like anything to
distract them. Soon their drinks arrived and they were discussing and having fun,something they had not done in a long time. They went dancing for a while and soon returned their seat and continued with their little
celebration when a lady walked up to them.
“Hi,sorry to bother you guys but am such a huge fan of your blog and seeing you on TV today really inspired me”
“Oh my,thanks a lot”
“My name is Essie and for real consider me your biggest fan”
“Thank you Essie,well this is my husband Samuel”
“Nice to meet you Mr Samuel, you really married a rare gem”
“I know right thank you,why don’t you join us, we are celebrating her success”
“I will love to but I came with my man and he will soon start missing me but if it is okay with you guys I will like to take a picture”
“Sure why not” replied Samuel as she joined them and then took a selfie with both of them.
“Thanks a lot for the picture” she said as she walked away
“I guess you are now a certified celebrity now huh?” Samuel teased his wife
“Sure,very soon I will start signing autographs” she replied as they both burst into laughter.
