Egbon: Mazi, you sure say no be school we dey so? The grammar wey you dey speak plus how you take dey break the points down dey make me believe o!

Mazi: Thank you very much for the acknowledgement! Na this one we dey do so dem they call informal education! So person no fit say because him no get money, then him no go fit advise him children or caution them when them go wrong. And if for any reason the person no fit, e better make the person no born pikin o

Facing Reality

Mazi: Na before before that kind thing dey happen well well, no be like today wey eyes don sharpen! Nowadays enlightenment don dey about family planning and how to raise healthy children. By the time you nurture pikin till e grow, put am for school and pay school fees for formal education, you go advice yourself well when you won born other children
