DO YOU LOVE GREY? TUESDAYS 6PM

'AKCITY'


Akanni also known as AKCITY never knew his parents. He grew up with his old grandma; at 24 he is at the peak of his career after all what else can he truly excel in?
Akcity a professional tout proudly a primary school graduate. Expert fighter, importer and exporter of weed, no failures always deliver.
If you haven’t met an ‘akanni’ yet need I ask you what you are doing with your existence? or are you one of those that put your nose up in the air and called them 'society degenerate' (be gone from our street agberos!) because you, a graduate of one big school in the county or of course you furthered outside the country?
See no one is faulting your mighty CV and great antecedents or that your thriving business; just that Akanni is someone like you he does his business honestly (even if not legally) to make ends meet. But just you know that you cannot put a tag on him and call him something he is not because you are better off.
“Kosi changi ooo mu changi e daani” that might be Akanni’s mantra if perchance he conducts a bus you transported in; the guy still has to make a living just as you also want to eat and sleep.
Your needs and his are not different so next time you see an ‘akanni’ on your way out, no one asks for your pity just respect Akanni because life gave him his own dish of soup: good or not he’s got to dine…

WHAT'S YOUR LAST EXPERIENCE WITH AN AKANNI?
IS THERE ANY HOPE FOR AN AKANNI?

  2. Labelling theory is something that lots have come to welcome as what is "normal "
    Understanding that Akannis deserve our respect as much we deserve same from them, the earlier we begin to unlearn, relearn and welcome diversity we may not truly live

  3. I've had so many experiences with Akannis and their rudely activities. To say the society gave them that share was an optional choice. Though it looked like the only choice they had. I feel the total urbanization of our cities in line with SGD 11 will curb the Akannis and their rudely acts. #JustMakingCommonSense
