Q: How has market been since year 2020 started? A: Things have not been easy. It’s been tough. Since we voted in 2019, Nigeria has been in turmoil. There is a scarcity of cash flow. Those governing us do not know that the poor are suffering. They have enough money to spend. They need to make the money circulate so everyone can be alright. Things are expensive. We do not even have money to invest in business. Our children that are graduates are idle. Now some of them are engaged in criminal activities. Why won’t this be when there isn’t enough money and there are no jobs? Why won’t they steal? Their own children live abroad. They relocated them to comfort zones. Meanwhile, we are suffering. They should have mercy on us. We voted them in so they should be compassionate. They should help us before we go naked for their sake. Help us beg them. I’m talking about those governing us starting from President Buhari himself. Even Sanwoolu that is our governor in Lagos should also have mercy on us. They should let money flow. Let them have mercy on Nigerians. They should help us fix our roads. We do not have good roads. We do not have power supply. No power supply to pump water. The roads are bad. We don’t enjoy smooth rides in cars because of the potholes on the road. We spend longer time going to places that are not far because of the bad roads. They should have mercy on us as there is no money to spend. They should not push us to the point where we curse them. We will not vote for them again. We will vote neither APC nor PDP candidates in again. We won’t vote for them again. They are the ones destroying this country. Things are tough for Nigerians. The country is not settled. We are enduring serious hardship. They should have mercy on us. Q: Have you sold since you set up today? A: I haven’t. That’s why I’m seated on this high stool. We have not been able to sell. We came to the market to play. We are not selling. In the past we would have sold enough goods by this time. I’ve not sold up to N10,000 today despite the fact that I sell in bulk. Business is slow as there is no money. We are not selling. Q: How many children have you? Did you train them? A: I have three children. I’m training only one for now and it’s a struggle to do that. I am struggling hard to educate him at the university level. I asked the other two to hold on as I have no money to train them. And I really want them to be educated as I did not have that opportunity. Q: What would you then like the government to do for you? A: The government should have mercy on us. Let them make money go round. They should make us comfortable. Let them create jobs. They should let everyone have sustainable jobs. The educated youths are unemployed. They are involved in menial jobs. They are being offered ridiculous amounts as salaries. Imagine that despite the money and effort spent in educating them. Some graduates are conductors. It is absurd. Q: If you have the opportunity to be in power what will you do? What will you change? A: Job creation will be the first thing I’ll see to. Once our youths are gainfully employed, then parents can be relieved. Our wards can take care of us if they are employed. There are no jobs and money is scarce. Yet, things are becoming more expensive. Prices of commodities get hiked on a regular basis. The amount used in purchasing five bags of a product in the past can only buy a bag of the same product. That’s all! Reporter: Thank you.

Q: How much were you buying stockfish in the past? How much is it now? A: Stockfish isn’t as expensive as that. We only pray for God to have mercy on us in this country. Once there is enough money around to buy, all is well. It is not expensive. It’s all about the money to put into it. Q: How long have you been into this business? A: I’ve been doing this for a long time. Q: How many years now? A: That should be over fifty years. Q: You mean you’ve been selling stockfish for 50 years? (Respondent nods in agreement) Q: What market were you selling it before? A: Awolowo market at Oloosa. That was where my mum was. She started the business. That was way before I came to Mushin. We used to buy from Eko then. But now things have changed. We buy the stockfish at Oyingbo market. Q: What have you been able to achieve with this business? A: God has indeed been gracious. He has done well for me. If one is able to train her children with a business, then that business is a successful outfit. Q: How many children have you? A: I have quite a number of children. Q: Were you able to educate them all? (Respondent nods to say yes) Q: Did they get to the university level? A: Yes. Q: You mean with this business alone? A: Yes. Q: What are they doing now? Is anyone into this business? A: They have not agreed to do it yet. Q: Have you built a house from this business? A: God has done it all. I have a house and a car. To crown it all there is peace of mind. Q: Are you not keen on making one of your children take over this business? A: I would love to, I have told them. I told them. Q: Is your mother still alive? A: My mother has passed. Q: What will now happen to this business? A: My children will eventually come round. They will agree to do it. One of them will do it. I simply don’t want it to perish. If I can then get help from the government to do this business internationally, it will be good. I would love it. Even if I look after my grandchildren in abroad, I’ll still love to do this job. Stockfish is being imported from overseas; Norway to be precise. I wish to get there as I’ve been in this business for too long. Reporter: Fifty years! A: (Exclaims) It should even be more than that. It’s over fifty years. Q: Do you still have a husband? A: My husband is late. He passed on about two years ago. Q: So this business has really been helpful, right? A: God has been good to me. Q: Did you learn any vocational skill when you were younger? A: No, I only went to school. Q: What level did you get to? A: I only had primary education. I stopped at primary six. It was okay. Q: Did your mother introduce this trade to you? A: It was her doing. Q: Did you have interest in it? A: It was my mother. I told her I wanted to go to school but my mother insisted that this was the right thing to do. She said that she had no one to stay with her and monitor the business. That’s the same way I’ll cajole my children for them to join me in it. She said that she wanted this line of trade and I did it. I am successful in it. Q: Do you come to this market daily? A: Yes. Every other day apart from Sundays. Q: How much can one make daily from doing this? A: (Exclaims) That’s up to God. Q: How about weekly? A: That’s totally up to God. One cannot ascertain how much she’ll make weekly. With God, one can make as much profit as possible. But you can’t put a figure to it. Q: With all you have said, you were born in Lagos, right? Q: Aren’t you a Lagosian? A: No, I’m not. I am from Abeokuta. I only lived in Mushin. I am an indigene of Abeokuta.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class has been announced. It includes Whitney Houston, Notorious B.I.G.
and the Doobie Brothers. Now, is the Rock and Roll
Hall of Fame right or wrong to let hip-hop and R&B in? Well, I don’t want to sound like the second most unwhite
white guy on the panel, but… (laughter) I mean, it’s what’s edgy,
you know? It’s what’s the… Rock and roll
challenges the status quo. Like, when the Doobie Brothers
came out in, like, 1965, it was like,
“Ooh, Doobie Brothers.” And then N.W.A. came out, and they were like,
“Yeah, cute.” (laughter) They let T. Rex in. -Uh…
-(woman whoops) -(laughter)
-What? What’s wrong with T. Rex? T. Rex is a band.
They got in. There’s… They still haven’t put in,
uh, Smashing Pumpkins, Iron Maiden,
the “Baby Shark” guy. SPADE:
Yeah, I… -Kajagoogoo.
-But T. Rex gets in. Oh, yeah. They say rap should go in
the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But would, you know, Journey
get in the Rap Hall of Fame? -You know what I mean? If they
switched it around. -100%. -That’s a thinker. -Yes.
-That is a thinker. -I’m gonna think about that
for a while. -I think… I think the live show
would be exhilarating with all these dead people
in it. SPADE:
You want some live people? Host it in a cemetery, like… You want some live people in
the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? -Yeah. -Yeah, maybe we’ll get
Kenny Loggins in there. -He’s around.
-No, it’s kind of bittersweet because, you know,
because they’re dead, but the good news is that means they don’t have to go
to Cleveland. SPADE:
That is true. -Aw, we love Cleveland.
-That is… Ah, the old Cleveland joke. Can you get in
the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame if you’re on steroids? There’s too many Halls of Fames. -You know what I mean?
There’s too many. -Yeah. There’s sports…
Anyway, we’ll move it on. Um, it’s, uh… I don’t think we’re gonna fix
that one overnight. So, Tekashi69– probably one
of your favorite rappers– uh, he’s asking… Trying to include her.
Like, you know. Is asking a judge to let him
serve his pri-prison sentence at home, because he’s
a marked man in jail. The judge is like,
“Yes, literally. You have 40 tattoos
on your face.” And then the judge laughed. Um, anyway,
should they let him do this? I don’t know. I–
It’s just like, leave it to a millennial
to be like, “Ugh, prison.” (groans) (sighs) You know? “My… I’d really love to do this
in my bedroom.” -Yeah.
-You know? It’s like at school,
when I did detention, -I never thought of going,
“Can I do this at home?” -Yeah. Well, wait, he shouldn’t get
to do it in his actual house, ’cause he’s got a really nice
house. He’s really famous. He should do it in the house
that I grew up in. Just, like,
you have to shit outside and… -Shit in the yard. Just a gross
little shack. -Yeah. -Yeah. Yeah, I actually had an indoor
toilet. It was just a choice. Uh, but, still,
it’s-it’s just… (applause) Yeah, this kid.
And I can’t stay mad at him. He’s so cute. Is he? He’s got the “69” on his face. You can tell
that guy’s not married. I’m thinking about tattooing
on my face just a–
just a resentful hand job. It’s also actually… (cheering and applause) It’s actually quite… It’s quite a dangerous number
to have written across your– literally written
across your forehead in jail. I know. I think that’s… You got to let ’em know
what you like. -JAMIL: Yeah?
-SPADE: You got to let ’em know.
