CAN WE MEET YOU?
I am Bankole Aderibigbe, a 100 level student of Political Science. I am the last born of my family. My dad is a Muslim and my mum is a Christian.
SO, WHICH ARE YOU?
More of Christian but I go to both church and mosque. It depends actually. During the Ramadan period, I don’t necessarily fast but I break the fast.
SO, YOU DON’T FAST BUT JOIN IN BREAKING THE FAST?
*laughs* Yes, basically. And when it is time for Christmas, I join in. I haven’t really picked on though.
WHAT IS IT LIKE BEING THE LAST BORN?
It is actually very cool. You get to enjoy the benefit of being the last born of a very large family. But that does not mean that I’m like the baby of the house or something. I still work.
WHAT ARE YOU INTO RIGHT NOW?
Modelling. I’ve gotten deals from a few people. I’ve not started yet because I’ve not found a perfect platform yet. I heard about Ivory King but I could not apply then.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE BEFORE LEAVING SCHOOL?
I wouldn’t say I want to be popular but that is like the best thing, you know. But I want to be known for making impact in people’s lives. And also, making a good name for myself.
Well, I used to play basketball before coming to UI. But I’ve watched the UI team play and I don’t think I can play with them. They are just too exceptional. They are very good. But I heard there is a 100 level team, I can join that. If I will fix into the modelling thing, I think I might just be crowned the Ivory King one of these days.
ANY GIRLS RIGHT NOW?
No. I’m single.
I won’t say the girls are not coming but I’m just really there now.
ANY GIRLS YOU LIKE?
Yes, many of them.
CAN YOU MENTION THEIR NAMES?
I might not know their names because I just see them on social media. I can figure them out when I see them but I don’t really know their names. My crush right now is Yemisi in Political Science, who won Miss NAPSS Nigeria.
SPEAKING OF CRUSHES, WHO IS YOUR CELEBRITY CRUSH?
I like Rihanna not because she is very fine or that she exposes her body. I like the fact that she could work her way up without any man and do her things by herself.
SO, YOU LIKE INDEPENDENT WOMEN?
Yes, I do. But not the feminist type like Chimamanda.
SO, IF YOU WERE ASKED TO LEAVE SCHOOL FOR A YEAR FOR A CHANCE TO DATE A CELEBRITY, WHO WOULD IT BE?
I will date Dej Loaf. Even if you listen to her, you will like her.
IF YOU COULD CHOOSE BETWEEN DEJ LOAF AND FIVE MILLION NAIRA, WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
For God’s sake, who is Dej Loaf to my career?
WHAT IF YOU COULD DATE HER FOR YEARS, INSTEAD OF THE FIVE MILLION NAIRA?
Well, dating Dej Loaf would make me like famous and the 5 million naira would help with my potentials. But potentials don’t matter in Nigeria, so I think I will just choose Dej Loaf.
WOULD YOU MARRY A VIRGIN?
Of course, that is who I want to marry.[the_ad id=”1971″]
CAN YOU DATE ONE?
No o *laughs* I can’t imagine myself dating a virgin but I can marry one.
HOW WILL YOU MARRY A VIRGIN WHEN YOU CAN’T DATE ONE?
*laughs* That is a difficult question. I haven’t really thought about that.
WHAT IS YOUR FASHION SENSE LIKE?
It depends. I like being simple. I don’t like being extreme. I like being myself. Some days I like being corporate or looking “officified”. I actually like black. I am a black freak.
HOW HAS UI BEEN SO FAR?
I has been fun. There are lots of people I talk to and who understand my kind of person make the whole school fun and better for me.
HOW WOULD YOU RATE UI’S SOCIAL LIFE?
It depends. I’m not the extremely social person but compared to other schools, the social life on campus is not exactly what you would expect. I will rate it 4 or 5 out of 10.
WHAT ABOUT YOURS?
I’ll rate it 7 out of 10. UI is actually boring. It’s not where you will find a lot of parties. There isn’t much avenue to meet with other people around. There is no platform for people to flex. I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I’ve only been here for a semester because I heard there are a lot of dinners in second semester.
WHO ARE YOUR CLOSEST FRIENDS?
I hang out with a lot of people. I am not the proud type. If you talk to me, I will not snub you. Some people think I am a little proud but I actually hang out with so many people. I have friends from everywhere basically. I try to be nice to everyone even if it doesn’t pay every time.
HOW ARE YOUR ROOMMATES?
My roommates are cool. There are the stubborn ones. *laughs* Don’t let me just mention their names.
ANY SHOUT OUTS?
A big shout out to my friends, those who are around, those who have had a positive impact in my life, those who feel I am proud. A big shout out to you all basically who have made my stay here a very good one.
ANY FINAL WORDS?
Final words? Um…no final words. *laughs* I’m good.
