As di steering come dey do for my hand, I know say na my back tyre burst so.

And dat place near one taxi park after dat Olopa station for Ketu.

Na im I drive small small, enter di taxi park. Everybody for di garage come dey tell me “Sorry o, sorry o. Tank God say you no enter express before di ting happen.”

I come down and see say di tyre wey burst don scatter patapata. Olorun Oba o!

I open my boot, bring out jack and spare tyre. As I bend down to jack up my guonguoro, anoder taxi driver for dat garage don dey helep me loose di tyre knots.
