Mai Atafo wins African Designer of the Year at Glitz Style Awards 2017

Hi Guys! What popping? How was your Christmas and New Year? Mine was……….interesting! That’s the word! I didn’t go out too much but I met a very powerful person. Let me tell you how…………..I was ‘jonzing’ at work a few days to Christmas when I got a call from one of my good friends. She invited me to a private party in Ikoyi. Her ‘man-friend’ was entertaining a few of his friends and she wanted me to join them. I was a bit skeptical so I asked who would be there….she said some very important people. That was enough for me! The last time I accompanied her to his house,

I met the owner of that big mall in Lekki! I was wearing just a random pair of jeans and a t-shirt….there was no time to drive all the way home. Luckily I remembered that I had a nice dress in my car and a pair of expensive designer heels that I just bought! My make-up was in the car as well! I was set! I quickly changed into the short backless dress and slipped on the heels, put on some make-up and drove to the huge house in Ikoyi.

There were so many Mobile Police guys outside the house so I knew these were ‘real’ big boys. I met up with my friend and some other girls and we walked in together.

We walked in to a dimly lit sitting room….R and B music playing in the background and about six guys seated. There were four of us ladies and six guys! Nice! I spotted the third most powerful man in Nigeria sitting on a couch….he quickly became my target! I was sure all the other guys were loaded but I didn’t have time to start interviewing them all abeg!

One of the other girls obviously had the same game-plan because she quickly made her way to the couch and sat next to him. All the other girls made small talk with the other guys…..I was not to be outdone! I sat next to her on the couch as well!

I didn’t say anything at first; I just sipped Rose and listened to everyone else’s conversations. She wasn’t doing so well with him and I could see he wasn’t impressed with her. I smiled and said to him ‘It’s nice to see you dressed down….I’m used to seeing you in traditional gear on TV…’He smiled at me and we started talking….we hit it off immediately and we just kept talking over the girls head….totally ignoring her.

She was so annoyed! At some point, she got up and I moved closer to him. He’s actually a nice guy with such a nice smile. We talked for over an hour and it was like we forgot there were people around us.

We exchanged phone numbers. On Christmas day I sent him an SMS and he didn’t reply. I made sure I didn’t call him till New Year’s Eve. He sounded so happy to hear from me and we talked for a bit on the phone. We made a date to meet up at one of his houses in V.I. The street was so coded; I didn’t even know it existed.

It felt really weird when the armed guys asked me who I was there to see and I mentioned his first name. After a few minutes, they let me drive in and I was walked to the front door.

I noticed all the G-Wagons in the compound. ‘Money Good’ I thought to myself. He came downstairs and offered me drinks. I asked for Henny and coke; and we gisted and drank.

On one hand, he was so cool and easy to talk to….at the same time I was blown away by the fact that I was sitting side by side with this powerful man! I was shaking inside o! As innnnn…..this is a BIG FISH!

One thing led to another and before you could say ‘lawmaker!’ My top was off …his lips on my right boob and his fingers in me…….I was about to ask if he had protection (in my excitement…I forgot to bring some) when his phone started to ring ….he took the call and he started to frown…it was his wife……reminding him that some visitors were on the way to see him.

He gave me time to clean up and get myself together…..he promised we’ll hook up again soon……..*deep inside* I’m over here cursing those visitors!!! Who knows what he would have given me ehn?? KMT!!! I’m angry ‘jare’…..

It’s me again! Your favourite Mischievous Lagos Girl !!! I did some thinking this couple of days… I was thinking of all the guys I had been with and I tried counting……..I’m kind of shy to say that I lost count. I could not remember how many people I’ve been with! Is it really that much of a bad thing?

So, What makes a slut, a slut? Is a slut a guy/girl? Is someone who has been with more than 2, 5, 10, 20 or even 50 people a slut? What do you think?

Also, does shagging more than one person at a time make one a slut?

Email me at I’d like to hear your opinion.

This past weekend was packed! So many parties and after parties, I had not been out in a while so I gathered my girls and we hit the town dressed to kill! I have been really stressed out with work so I lost some weight and guess what? It looks very good on me! My stomach is much flatter and thankfully my assets remain the same! 🙂

I met a lot of guys at the different events. Some good looking, some NOT. Some wealthy, some

BROKE…and some who were nothing to write home about. There were two guys who caught my eye though! Funny enough they are brothers, they look alike, they’ve got money and they are FIIIINNNE!! Lol!

My girls and I got invites to their house party/birthday party and that’s where I met them for the first time. I was laughing and dancing with my friends in a corner of their living room when I mistakenly bumped into one of them…….I looked up to say sorry and I found myself gazing at this handsome, well built guy. I smiled and said sorry…..he smiled too and said “it’s ok”…..

I got introduced to his brother (Bayo) a few minutes later and I’m not ashamed to say that I instantly KNEW I would FUCK them both! At the SAME TIME if possible. Those of you who have been reading my column should know that my greatest sexual fantasy is to be with two guys at the same time. I got talking to Bayo and he said he would give me a tour of the house later.

These guys are loaded!!!! It was rumoured that they spent millions on drinks alone! So everyone was tipsy. I had had a lil henny, a lil vodka, a LOT of Rose and some tequila….yep! I was very tipsy…..I saw the two brothers conversing outside…..I boldly walked up to them and said……”Hi, I’d like the two of you to give me the tour of your house now”…by then I had found out that their names were “Bayo & Dayo”…..6ft 4inches tall of muscled chocolatey goodness!

I was WET!!!

They didn’t object as I linked arms with them and they gave me a tour. It wasn’t easy cos the house was kinda packed and so many people were trying to talk to them but they made sure I stayed by their side……they took me to the pool where different guys & girls of all shapes and

colours were swimming…. They showed me their garden and led me to a back door and we found ourselves back in the house. They took me upstairs and led me into one of their rooms. I took one glance at the room and said “This is a really nice room…..I really li…….” Before I could finish my sentence, I felt someone kissing my neck and a hand on my ass….another hand cupped my boobs & another one lifting my dress. Four hands on me…..touching and teasing….I was dripping wet!! My dress came off somehow and I was lifted and placed on the bed……Bayo kissed me…..and Dayo took off my bra…..they placed me on my side ….one brother on each side……one (I had lost track by now) was kissing my lips, my neck….my boobs and the other was behind me cupping and squeezing my ass….while kissing and licking my neck. They were so in sync…it was like they had done it before……just as I felt a finger on my clit and I thought I was going to cum……there was a LOUD knock on the door……….their attention was needed! The police was outside and they wanted to see the brothers…..I was so horny!! I almost cried…..we all got dressed hurriedly…….one of them rushed out….the remaining one said “what’s your pin?” As he handed me his phone….I quickly entered my pin into his bb and he dashed off…….I quickly went into the bathroom in the room to straighten and freshen up!

Immediately, I left the party and went straight home. I took off all my clothes, and relieved my ‘horny-ness’ with my shower head…

Now, it’s been three days and I’ve heard nothing from Dayo or Bayo. I’m frigging pissed!

Should I get in touch with them so we can finish what we started ? Or should i just hug my shower head and let it go?
