Strictly by Invitation – Written by Akhigbe Samson

The word “Strictly by Invitation” on a Wedding or Birthday Card is what rich people use to keep poor people out. In every family, there are poor people we don’t like to associate with, even the poor people don’t want to associate with themselves. If Mummy Lekki has a party and she doesn’t want Iya Ibadan in attendance, she will instruct
the printer to write “Strictly by Invitation” very boldly.

Please note that there’s a difference between “Daddy” Abuja and “Baba” Kafaya. You need to look and listen closely, Nigerians know how to class each other. If you’re poor in the family and you don’t get the “Strictly by Invitation” Card, don’t be surprised that “Mummy Festac’s house geh will attend the party. What it means is that in this equation, the house geh, by association, is more important.

Nigerians do not respect the word “Strictly by Invitation”, it’s a futile exercise. It is just to reduce the crowd, not necessarily to get the exact guests. If you send an IV with the inscription, expect 2 guests per invite, if you don’t add it, expect 4 guests/invite. A Nigerian will send out 100 invites and sell 500 Aso ebi just to make money and when the event is jam packed and there’s no Jollof Rice, the host will start screaming; “I only invited 100 people”. #Idiot ! Where will people wear the Aso ebi to? Their funeral?
