THE MAD COUPLE IN MY VILLAGE
Samade modified right into a graduate of carried out physics from Nigerian university, Nsukka before he ran mad. Samade end up a fan of each villager for his competencies and competencies. Abilities and capabilities insanity could not take keep of away from him. His dancing steps and melodious voice can’t be left out through passersby. He sings and dances with out musical gadgets however folks that listened and watched him wanted he have become now not mad for the ecstasy he gave to them.
His love existence and marriage to Cynthia, any other mad female in the village modified into an envy of many couples. Samade and Cynthia had lived together in a self constructed self-contained under the well-known bridge at Orile junction for 22 years. There have been numerous instances the villagers observed them quarreling but nobody knew how they settled their variations.
Lamentably Samade and Cynthia do now not talk the identical language. While Samade became from my village, Cynthia was from the japanese a part of the u . S . A .. They lived collectively for 22 years with out an extended separation.
How they consented to live as couple and had 3 children is a riddle no person is however to clear up. They lived beneath equal roof in quote, that they’d no deliver of earnings apart from begging, they don’t have any commonplace sense, lacked counselors, by no means attended marriage lessons, however they lived together for 22years uninterrupted.
Samade and Cynthia have been the Romeo and Juliet in their global, an fantastic healthy to a fault. Mad but proud of every different and their union. They have been seen severally kissing, hugging, caressing and sharing romantic moments collectively in the village.
They shared all things in not unusual, they bathed collectively, done collectively, ate together, entertained their guests collectively, fought collectively, smiled collectively and so forth. Samade and Cynthia were an epitome of uncoordinated romantic parents. Inside the occasion that they have been no longer mad, they might have received the first-class couple of the yr’s award.
The lesson in Samade and Cynthia’s romantic tale is that this; “If the insane can hold a romantic courting, the sane ought so that you can do higher”. Unfortunately, most sane couples with not unusual revel in can’t live collectively as husband and wife for 10 years with out divorce or separation. However they have got access to the good stuff of life. They have correct refuge, properly meals, sound education, non secular facilitates, finance and so forth.
The story of this mad couple stimulated me when growing up in the village as a younger boy. With this I made a covenant with my maker that i’m able to have an enviable marriage. I informed myself while i used to be 17 that “if a mad guy can do it, i’m able to do it higher because of the reality i’m at better benefit”.
Alas, Samade died on 24th July 20… and Cynthia died too on 1/3 September of the equal year of melancholy and loneliness. Their kids were adopted via 3 great households whose lives have been stimulated with the aid of the romantic life of the mad couple.
