      I think I can help with question 1. Maybe he has a good day
      time job and moonlights as a waiter in the evenings?

    I don’t want to be mean but Iyanya is doing too much at the
    moment. I think he needs to take a long relaxing vacation. He is
    sort of everywhere, everyday and every time.

    Chai!! See my life!!! One of my favorite Nigerian songs is a not-so-popular song called Elewe Ukwu by some guy named TJ. Its a really chill song and it’s been on my workout playlist for years….So the recent posts on BN and all this talk of Ukwu by Timaya and Iyanya made finally decide to do some more research to find the meaning of this my beloved song, just to find out that one of the lines “elee ukwu egbu ewu” means “your waist can kill a goat”…Jizozz! after almost 5years of thinking he was saying something really romantic and pouring his feelings out! Na wa o…the beauty/complexities of being Nigerian sha, lol.

      not to be take literally it means a girls waist can make one to start making marriage preparations (killing a goat).

      In the Igbo culture, a husband has/had to kill a goat for his wife on the birth of their 7th child. “Elewe ukwu egbuo ewu” means that if one keeps looking at that waist, one will marry that waist and end up with lots of kids. “Confarmed…”

    That’s a nice one.
    But Naija men are known for their
    Volumptous waist and hips.
    However, this is not seen in this
    Despite The fact, The title says
    “Ukwu” (Waist)
