Eva D’s piercing voice ran into the heaved microphone and ricochets on the speakers: “Hey, Lasgidi people. Itz Eva D. Your One and only radio diva. You welcome to the road show, Where broken hearts go. With my broadcast partner Ang-G. We welcome you to yet another exciting love, relationship and break up talk show.

But let me leave it to you love people. Call. Text. Comment on our Fb and twitter page. Lets take this music from fast rising Nigerian musician Simi “Love don’t care.” Eva D drops her headphone. Gave Angie a quick feigned smile, brought her Iphone 5 and waved it at Angie’s face. Angie’s face darkened with angst.
The music slowly died into the speakers
. Eva D puts her headphone back and blare into the microphone: “Welcome back. itz Eva D. Your radio diva, welcoming you back to the best radio love talk show
In the whole of Nigeria. A woman from Apapa, writes: i have been married for five years. Recently, i bumped into my ex and it seemed all i felt for him in the past has re-surfaced. I don’t feel affection for my husband. What should i do? Should i divorce my husband? Whats your take love people. The phone line should be buzzing now right Angie?” Angie opened her mouth but Eva D disrupted her. Ding! Ding! “Hello. Who’s on the line?” The phone line cuts. “Oh, we missed that call. Lets go to our Fb page.” Buzzzzzzzz.
“Hello. Whats your name and where are you calling from?”
“My name is Ijeoma. I am calling from Ikeja.”
“Whats your advice for the damsel in distress?”
“She shouldn’t live her husband oh. She better stick to her marriage.”
“But she love another man?”
“But does her ex still love her?”
“We don’t know…”
“She better stick to her husband. A man who has done her no wrong.”
“Thank You Ij.”
“I agree with Ijeoma…”Angie voice rose. “Our Fb page is flooded. Let me read one. From Martha. “Its complicated. Love is a delicate issue. Is she sure what she feel for her ex is not lust? Lust could be at times confused for love. I would advise her to take things jeje,” Eva D retorted. “That was nice, right Angie?” Angie kept quiet…
“We have come to the end of the show love people. It was an exciting show right? Lets take a word or two from my broadcast partner Ang-G. Angie whats your take?” Eva D said. Angie cleared her throat. “I agree with most of the callers, who opted that the woman should remain with her husband.” “That would be all love people.” Eva D stopped her from continuing. Both women took their headphones down. “Hey, Angie i have a party today for the success of the show. My friends are hosting me. ,” Eva D said like both of them have been friends for long. “Oh! I don’t know if i…” Angie stuttered. “You should come Angie. Nigerians of high social status will be there. Here’s the invitation card,” she handed it to Angie. Angie took it and skimmed through… “Come with a date,” Eva D said and stood from her seat.
