15 February 2016



 

So today wasn’t a typical day at the office, to say the least.

It started out as a normal morning, until an email went round at lunchtime informing us that we were to be hosted to a Valentine’s Day lunch. As it happened, it was more like a decadent buffet, including cakes and even champagne! There was an extra special surprise in store this year – unbeknown to us ladies.

While we tucked into our hearty meal, we quickly realised what was unfolding – the Firm had organized none other than Banky W – hiding behind a bunch of flowers!

In case you’re not from around here, Banky W (short for Wellington) is one of Nigeria’s most in-demand R&B crooners. Think Usher Raymond in his prime.

Of course, we reacted pretty much as you would expect. Screams, selfies – and yes, he belted out one of his popular hits. Apparently, we had almost as much an impact on him as he did on us, because shortly after, he made a touching tribute, inspired by his visit, on his Instagram page. Read it here.

That was how a totally random Monday became something more memorable for us all – even him.
