Atoke’s Monday Morning Banter: All About Your Crush! No, Not the Drink

Ever wondered why lethargy seems like a common feeling on Mondays? With all the activities that come with the weekend it’s a miracle that we’re actually expected to get ANY rest on Saturdays and Sundays; and so we find that we want just a little more sleep on Monday morning. I woke up this morning thinking “the holidays can’t come soon enough!” but knowing that there was work to be done, I dragged myself into the kitchen and as I dropped my tea bag into my cup I started whistling humming the tune “Polly Put The Kettle On”. For some reason, it was oddly comforting and it actually helped me get through the rest of the getting ready for work process. It brought back memories of simpler times; of times when all that I had to worry was get all my spellings right and a big bright smile from my father was prize enough! It brought back memories of when the height of emotional anxiety was a crush I had at 14. And right there as I whistled  hummed in the shower, it came to me…I was going to write about crushes! Something fun, light-hearted and easy for someone who has been in traffic for 2 hours trying to get to work.

So, my SS1 Crush! He was my best friend’s brother and I worshipped the ground he walked on. He never said a word to me but that didn’t matter. It simply added to the allure of the crush.  I would go to their house and if he opened the gate my heart would literally go boom-ba-da-boom-ba-da-boom! Just a chance to say “Hi!” to him was heaven in my sappy 14 year old world. It didn’t also help that my friend would come to school with tales of how he turned on the generator (back then all the cool kids had those diesel generators that you turn around a lever very fast before you push back the thing to turn it off) and for me, my crush turning on the generator at that age was “oooh! He’s so strong”. I was a voracious novel reader and I’d replace all the big, strong, kind, gentle, handsome characters with my crush. I left secondary school with my crush still intact but then as fickle as the heart is and with fine fine Oxbridge boys to crush on… my crush fizzled out. Then Facebook came and I hurriedly went to look for my Secondary school crush and sadly.. I didn’t feel anything. I mean, NOTHING! He was just a guy I’d known in high school.

I like crushes. Really I do. They’re fun and easy and they’re easy to replace. I’m currently staying away from the usual suspects Idris Elba, Michael Ealy, Chris Attoh, Flavour… Too many people are crushing on them so there’s no need to join that long queue.  I’m not quite sure what to do with my feelings for Matt Bomer but *sigh* It is Well! That is one fine specimen of a brother irrespective of the team he plays for. I even have girl crushes like Kate Walsh & Eva Alordiah! Don’t Judge

Let’s talk about your crushes! Past and present. Did any of them materialize into anything meaningful? Do you look back and wonder “what was I even crushing on sef?” Who are you crushing majorly on at the moment?

Anyway, I hope you guys have a fantastic week ahead. Don’t get too bogged down with work, take a minute to breathe and remember it’s great to be alive.

    Massive crush on John Mikel Obi… LOVE Chelsea FC because of the lad and now i’m an incurable Igbo fanatic too. Got the chance to be at an event he’s attend couple years back; i totally freaked and boycotted the event!

  • Lips are Sealed October 22, 2012 at 9:48 am

    Oh mehn!!! Can’t tell cos he may read it here. But I see him everyday/at work!!!

    Anyways, my crushes are fun. I love them. And cos I daydream a lot they come in handy. However, my crushes always end (and mind you, most abruptly) if the Crushee takes the slightest interest in me. I just move on so fast, its ridiculous.

    Do have a lovely week, Atoke!

  • me speaks October 22, 2012 at 10:12 am

    So u wanna talk about crushes. Okay my first crush was my family friend, i kinda liked him and our folks used to call us husband and well unfortunately he’s dead now:( but nothing ever happened between us. May his soul RIP. My other crush (unrealistic)is Chris Evans and then (realistic) Vector*covers face*

  • Ms. yummy October 22, 2012 at 10:15 am

    hehe! I have had crushes since my kindergarten days. *can’t look!*lol… And truly, I look back now and wonder what I was crushing over sef. But it was fun 😀

  • Damie October 22, 2012 at 10:20 am

    Yay! Crushes. When I was younger I never understood why anyone crushed on celebrities. I mean you would most likely never meet them. Still makes no sense to me but I’m so in love with Lynxx right now. First, it was D’banj but meh (he is still a hottie though) but Lynxx has my heart. Those arms ;;) *sigh*. Anyhow, my first crush was my neighbour, he was 7 years older. The crush lasted from SS1 to my 3rd year in Uni. We had a brief relationship sha and then I lost interest in him (should have left at crushing). When I see him now I feel nothing but he was a great guy.

  • Scarlet Xianne October 22, 2012 at 10:23 am

    I once had a crush on my 12 year old neighbour. I was 13. it did not amount to anything. In fact, he broke my heart when he came to my house and played out a ‘break-up’. I was so confused. We were friends, but I never even said anything to him about liking him. He never spoke to me after that until I saw him last year. We just said ‘hi’ , although I’d really like to ask him why he did what he did.

    • Partyrider October 22, 2012 at 12:17 pm

      Lmao @ I was so confused

  • Bamz October 22, 2012 at 10:27 am

    My present crush is Mario Cimarro (he acted as the reincarnated Don Pedro Jose in the 2nd chance mexican telenovela)I’m presently watching a telenovela he stars in. My immediate past crushes are Chris Attoh, Lynxx & John Dumelo (JD). You can tell from the list of names that nothing can come out of it. Crazy enough I even auditioned for Tinsel early this year so I could be close to Chris Attoh.

  • Derin October 22, 2012 at 10:38 am

    I don’t care what anyone says, but MI, yes Jude Abaga has my heart!! Yet to find a reason to stop loving him

    • Mz Socially Awkward… October 22, 2012 at 1:37 pm

      MI has my heart too!!! I’m unrealistic like that about my crushes, I feel like they need to meet high intellectual standards and goodness me, that brotha seems like someone I could just talk to for hours!!! It’s absolutely ridiculous how much I like him.

      However that said, I’m also crushing quite madly on Micheal Ealy just for his yummy looks … this is a sad state of confusion that I’m in, isn’t it?

  • Personal Shopper October 22, 2012 at 10:40 am
  • Marock October 22, 2012 at 10:45 am

    You lost me at Michael Ealy!!! I listen to John Legeng’s ”Tonight, best u ever had” dreaming that I’m Taraji P Henson in ‘Think like a man” and he’s eating chocolate and cherries off MY thigh…aaaahhhh.

    • missA October 22, 2012 at 1:08 pm

      *stares into space with a whimsical smile on my face*

    • Mz Socially Awkward… October 22, 2012 at 1:47 pm

      Jisox! Girl, I’m going to have to smack you back into reality ‘cos you know those daydreams aint doing you no damn good. Every single one of us who watched that movie want that man in our bedrooms eating chocolate off our thighs… and it ain’t happening … 🙂

  • Bola October 22, 2012 at 10:50 am

    So I met one of my crushes weeks ago,was so overwhelmed and I literally had one of those ‘what the hell did I just do’ moment…….I was doing the keeping in touch and he cared less,it ended up a case of longing for something and eventually when you get it,you begin to question yourself

  • k.jay October 22, 2012 at 10:54 am

    I had a crush on a lady until I found out she was older than me for 2yrs and 5months. chai!! No chance!!

  • Stunning October 22, 2012 at 11:04 am

    My first crush was my childhood friend, we were close bcuz our mums are friends so we spent lots of time together until we started sharing kisses @ age 15-14 respectively. But now times have changed we are just friends nothing more(we were in the same class in the university). My present crush is Majid michel, Joshua Bowman, Ian somerhalder, Dustin Claire & Collin Farrel.

  • Karonwi October 22, 2012 at 11:07 am

    I had a massive crush early in high school nd after reconnecting with him, I realised he wasn’t just ‘someone i knew’ in high school… It materialised into a good frndship but I dont know if it is safe to still call it a crush. hehe

  • Diva October 22, 2012 at 11:17 am

    Hmmmm Crushes! i think ive had a crush on Brad Pitt for like ever. I recall “Interview with a vampire” “Meet Joe Black” but the minute he got with Angelina Jolie, i dropped that dude like a bad habit (As if i ever had a chance…lol) but Terrence Howard! OMD! Those eyes… im still crushing on him. Ok back to reality, i had a crush in primary school. He used to play in the mschool music band and played the drums during assembly. Gosh! i was too little to understand why he got me all flustered and shy whenever he said hello to me. i think he found me amusing because he was much older and i was the little kid who had like 15 girls following her everywhere. Lol. talk about being young and innocent. Good times

  • X-try October 22, 2012 at 11:36 am

    Time changes yesterday……..back in the days, bulk of my female friends had crush on MJ and then at the revelation of RMD ( after he played the Pastor- Tutu role in ……..hmmmm cant remember the tittle of the movie)…..Ghen Ghen Crush Anointing was let loose…….Me I had crush on Regina Askia and Liz Benson sha oooo ( lol)

  • lily October 22, 2012 at 11:39 am

    Hate to break ur fantasy heart Atoke, but Matt Bomer is said to be

  • Abana October 22, 2012 at 11:45 am

    I crushed on one of my seniors in secondary school for a long time. And then he asked someone else out. That was my first heart break. Fast forward 5 years later I ran into him and we got talking. Turned out he liked me also but he thought I hated him cos I was always hostile towards him. I guess in my bid to hide the fact that I liked him, I was mean to him. Sad times:(
    On to the present, Boris Kodjoe any day any time! Being bald is the new sexy! And I can’t wait for my boo whose name is also Kodjoe to be bald (when he is above 40 though). Hehehehehe

    • Mz Socially Awkward… October 22, 2012 at 2:01 pm

      Oh my goodness, I met Boris Kodjoe this year, totally by accident at some shop!! And, girrllllll, you know how a man is the definiton of fineness-that-leaves-you-stammering-like-a-complete-idiot-as-you-lose-your-cool-while-staring-dreamily-into-his-face FINE? That man in all his bald glory was on a completely different level of sexiness, I still cringe when I think of what an ass I looked like standing in the man’s way and then grinning up at him like an idiot (he was quite tall too! FYYYYNESS, MY HEAVENS!)… okay, excuse me while I take a moment to compose myself …

    • Sobe October 22, 2012 at 3:10 pm

      Lol @ when he is 40 though

  • Theodora October 22, 2012 at 11:49 am

    Nice one atoke, i had and still have a crush on Samuel L Jackson, I have watched and have every single movie that dude has done or featured in, and i keeping praying one day maybe one day i will get to meet him somehow, it a miracle, i dont know how it will suffice but i have hope….LOL,

  • Miss NIRA October 22, 2012 at 11:56 am

    Mecheal Ealy, oh soo yum!! My first crush was my brother’s friend, I was 14,had my first kiss with him. Another was in the university,though we later dated. Now it’s all about Micheal Ealy!!!

  • Funmi October 22, 2012 at 11:57 am

    Hmmmnnn. i had a crush on a family friend when i was in secondary school. He didn’t even notice me then.He just sees me as a younger sister. But immediately i finished university he started asking me out and now we are dating and will be getting married soon.The funny thing was that he teased me one day that he knew i had crush on him then but he just felt i was too young for a serious relationship so was waiting for the right time. Dream come true.

    • Mz Socially Awkward… October 22, 2012 at 2:04 pm

      *dreamy sigh* That’s such a romantic story! 🙂

  • purplepearl October 22, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    Hmmm, i had a crush back in my primary school days, i think he never noticed, wonder where he is now, then i used to crush on MJ (God rest his soul) talk about impossibilities. Ryt now, i cant think of anyone. lol

  • mii October 22, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    my crush….theo walcott.

  • Chattyzee October 22, 2012 at 12:34 pm

    Here is my story;
    My first crush was on my “Head Boy” in primary school, (all through primary 3 – 6) but of course, he was too smart and too busy being a prefect to notice me then.(He never even gave me a second look…. ouch!)
    Fast forward 12 years later, I found him on FB (I was not looking for him I swear…), I added him and we got talking.. reminiscing all the good old days. Later, I went to Nigeria to visit and I was in Ibadan. This guy traveled all the way from Ilorin to Ibadan Just to see me and went back to Ilorin that same day! You can imagine how flattered I was … but no, we are not dating; just friends….lol
    Next, I had a crush on my best friend (a guy), he found out and freaked out….but our friendship survived it. But by the time he started “liking” me, I was over it. Sorry.
    My celebrity crush is torn between OC Ukeje, and Gabriel Afolayan these men radiate something gracious and charismatic..I love their movies.
    Who do I currently have a crush on? …lips sealed…. see ya!… or see more of me @

  • bonita October 22, 2012 at 12:43 pm

    i had a crush back on my family friend when i was still in primary school. He didn’t even notice me. I also had a crush on my classmate in secondary school and it was real torture for me as he didn’t notice me. He was very popular and have girls flocking around him. Fast forward 2 years in secondary school and we got talking as friends. I almost asked him out before he asked me out and we started dating. presently, we are friends and still keep in touch.
    my present crush is Bollywood actor John Abraham

  • Oly October 22, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    I have a crush on DON JAZZY, always day n night dreaming about him. Then FLAVOUR, boy na something o.

  • Radiant October 22, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    Weird but true, my long time crush is Mos Def!

  • Aibee October 22, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    My 1st crush was a fine boyu in my JAMB Class back in 2001. I attended a boarding school and JAMB class was the first time I ever got to attend ‘lesson’. Azuka (that’s his name) took a liking to me and he was so tall and fine and my best friend, who went to the same secondary school with him, told me I was lucky because all the girls in school were dying to be his girlfriend. I was tripped and he wrote me love letters and all, but alas, my Dad used to pick me after JAMB Class and I didn’t have any opportunity to develop the friendship. He wrote me a letter the week classes ended and I was to travel to Sagamu to write my JAMB/WAEC and finish out secondary school. I cried because I was leaving him and for the first time in my life I would have had a boyfriend. I gained admission that year but he didnt. Fast forward to 2002 and I ran into him on Campus in Ife and I couldn’t for the life of me remember what I saw in him a year earlier. He attends my church now and all and everytime I see him, I remember he was my first crush abd I still wonder what on earth the attraction was!

    Fast forward to the present, my crushes now are Banky W and O.C Ukeje. I absolutely die for Banky’s voice and O.C’s eyes are hawt. I told my fiance about my crush on Banky and OC and that was a very biiiiig mistake. I can’t watch a musical video by Banky W in it if my boo is near by because for the rest of that day, he will be sulking. As for O.C, since the day my boo saw me tweeting at O.C about one of his stage plays I saw and loved, we haven’t gone to see any stage play with OC in it again oh. If I say “there is this play at Terra Kulture/Muson/Freedom Park” he will ask who is in it, If I mention OC, trust me we will just miraculously have another event to be at together.

    In fact, now I have vexed. I shall be going to see my plays myself and taking a cab back home, no matter how late it is. It’s just that I like to curl into my beau when we are at the Theatre or the Cinemas. Oh crushes!

  • Purpleicious Babe October 22, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    no crush at the moment… but boi I can sooo crush. I can crush more than crush itself.. hahah.. loves crushing its soo sweet…

    first crush in primary school, first time I felt electric shock like Mills and Boons lool. ahahah it was nicee. I was crying cos I didnt make the choir, and my friend was trying to console me. The dude came over to find out why i was sobbing with my head bent low, she told him and he tried to console me too by saying sorry and he did what Nigerians do best (lay hands on ur heard and start rocking it to say sorry). HAHAHAHA . Sha I felt something o, it was as if my body woke up from slumber… only 9yrs +… That was how I crushed from primary to secondary till I left for abroad. In between, I crushed on other dude for like few days. Secondary school abroad crushed on another dude that looked similar to him, and this dude I crushed on him from school days to college days… ahahaha I can crush oh..

    Most recent crush early this yr on another dude. However, I mostly crush on light skin dudes.. whyyyyyy….lol. I appreciate the dark skins with body too oh..#renewmind#.. lol ok.

    Anyhoo, likes lynnxxx small oo, hmmmm more like I like certain attributes.. lol……

  • tomeloma October 22, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    Lets first crush was my sister’s bestfriend’s younger brother …we all went to the same school, my heart always raced when he passed by me and did everything to get him to notice me, but when i googled him early this year I couldn’t for the life of me understand why… except he was really intelligent and still is from what I saw.
    Anywayz..many other embarrassing crushes since then until I met the Michael Scoffield character from ‘Prison Break’ and I’m still grieving his death…don’t ask

  • Idak October 22, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    1. Jill Scott
    2. Xolile Tshabalala
    3. Bassie khumalo
    4. Bimbo Akintola.

    I guess i have blown my anonymous cover with that list up there. By the way, i don’t crush with folks i see in real life. That is too close for comfort.

    • But why? October 22, 2012 at 5:12 pm

      You better not say Jill Scott… i’m a woman but i love me some Jilly from Philly.. 🙂

      • Idak October 23, 2012 at 9:02 am

        Jill for life. That woman does something to me, in more ways than one.

  • Desire October 22, 2012 at 2:17 pm

    @ Tomeloma, I know! I seriously loved Michael Scoffield from prison break. I couldnt believe he died and Mickey stones from ‘HUSTLE’ that i promised to marry a Michael. God kinda blessed me with that.

  • Joan October 22, 2012 at 2:21 pm

    I’m the mother of crushes mehn.
    First crush was in primary school. I had a crush on two guys in my class. Then I told my best friend, and then she ran her mouth and told them both. See embarrassment sha lol…fast forward some 19 years later those two guys added me on Facebook and I sharply declined. What was I thinking in primary school biko?

    Current celeb crushes: Lynxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx! Then there’s Kenneth Okoli from that new movie ‘Mrs Somebody’. His voice is just divine + He’s a hunk!! 🙂 Then that new Trybe Records boy, Rukus…#swoon!
    Real life crush: Hmmm…my heart skips a beat every time he walks by. I don’t know if he knows or not. We say hi whenever we see. One time he hugged me, I thought I was going to faint!!! Yepa! I had to comport myself mehn! Then I found myself in this group of people having a conversation where he was also…I laughed at every single joke he made, it was ridiculous. And this is not even a looks issue, he is fine and super cool too.
    What’s a girl to do? This is an SOS! LMBO!
    Oh boy! Oh well, I’ll let y’all know how it goes… 🙂

    • Evilicious October 22, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    i have had a crush on OC Ukeje since high school… we were friends and i don’t think he ever picked up on it cos he always thought I liked his friend. Anyways that ship has long sailed… But I still get chills down my spine at the mention of his name or the sight of him. Thank God we are continents apart….whew!!!

  • lolade October 29, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    i had a crush on my Mr.T when I was in secondary school, he was 4 yrs my senior.. he became my school father becos he started dating my school mother. I was v v upset and hated them treating me like their daughter.. I told my school mother in jss2 i was a big girl n ddint want a school mother or school father again.

    Every now and again, I used to think about him and imagine running into him and acting all grown up… Him lusting over me, all crazy and making me his queen.

    Fast forward 6 yrs later, I walked into a party all grown up with curves and boobs in right portion.. I walked into my “school father” , I wanted to faint, I ran into the ladies looked at my make up, adjusted my hair n dress.. walked up to him and he recognised me instantly. Was with his friends n introduced me has his school daughter that became a big girl and didnt want a school mother or father again.. lol..

    He collected my number and bb pin and 18 months after we are married and am 6 months pregnant.

    My school mother is still in touch with him, sshe is married with 3 kids and teases us about abormination 🙂

    • Qee October 31, 2012 at 10:16 am

      The way you told your story, I found just hilarious!! Good to know it ended well for all – school father, mother and reluctant daughter! 🙂 Wish you well with the pregnancy.

  • BY CRUSHING I LIVE! October 29, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    Hmmmm ‘Crush’ dats my middle name o….I am a shameless crusher- as in I have imaginary conversations with d ‘subject’ of my crush even outloud n i create such beautiful stories around our love, such dat my best friend has given up on me! My crushes have different expiry dates, some r longer than others and my crush dreamland is one of my happy places to go to when d real world tries to get me down!
    I can detail from primary school- from Ali Mohammed (was my friend’s elder brother whom everyone had dis respect/fear for/of) who started dating one other chic n I moved on to d class villain called Leonard Okehi (he was d evil twin-naughty/mischievous n hot as hell)- all in my primary 6 mind o, hmm!

    Den secondary skool- too many i cant even remember some names- but if u were in FGCL-Ijanikin- Tall, Hunky, Quietly Swaggerlicious n on d reserved side- u most likely got my attention… I rmbr crushing HEAVILY on our resident Craig David(he really was) n he handsome dieeee + very chilled out- only to find out he was an Olodo dubbing from my friend during exam- my crush button switched ‘off’ immediately! By d way fast forward 8years i find out he’s in the same uni with my friends brother n they r good friends, i see him and his looks had really gone south:(

    Uni- I crushed on some dude for a few months as a jambite, and when I started dating my first real boyfriend, I quickly realised they were room mates- hahahahaha!!! but my love for my boyfriend of course had killed any kain yeye crush, we remain friends n getting to know his character just ensured the crush remained dead!

    As for celebrities- meeeeen I cant count… but I can confirm that D.B.Woodside (AKA Malcolm in d series Single Ladies) and my humble, happy, curvy self are currently in a hot romance in La-la-land and it isn’t ending any time soon! I have watched d entire series bout 10 times over- can recite it- as u can imagine, He is my new earthly happy place. (coincidentally he was introduced to me by a guy who was chasing me, but he’s managed to outlive the guy- at least he did one good thing 4 me b4 being kicked out:))

    In reality though, I got one I try not to think about too much cos I actually do want him for keeps- I say a silent prayer about it from time to time these days… we’re friends and I can’t say exactly when he started growing on me… for now, we’re continents apart and I have no clue what his relationship status is- I have no plans of making it my business to find out, n so far I am doing good… but if we’re both free and ready someday, it sure will be nice to know how we’ll do. If not- then I trust God to deliver someone who’ll make me realise why it never worked with anyone else!

    …..Ok back to d real reality…..its bedtime and Malcolm is waiting in my dreams *Batting eyelashes n blussszzzhing already)!

    i can only say one thing, y’all are crazzeeee, lol.
    My first crush was when i was in Primary 1, with one guy called Daniel, i liked boys eh!, and funny enough our teachers called us husband and wife, buh i think he changed schools didnt see him after primary 1, then i think my most serious crush was with a guy in church, when i was in SS1, he liked me too, buh we never ever heard a discussion, we always starred @each other and several times our eyes locked. presently cant remeber any more real life crushes nobody @ d moment, would really like to crush on someone soon *thinkn about my now loveless life, sobbing seruzly. moving over to celeb crushes, am so crushin for Naeto C, just like d brother, he is just so calm, collected and humble, and boy i love humble guys, and overseas crushes are Michael Ealy, yh dt muvee got to me, was literally sobbin, and off course Ryan Gosling loved him in dt muvee he starred with David Clooney. Btw who said they like Flavour, yuck *eyes rolling.
