Zikoko: Thank you for agreeing to sit with us today

LaCasera: My pleasure.

Zikoko: So, where’ve you both been? What have you been up to?

LaCasera: Well, as you can see, I got a new look.
Gala: Same here.
LaCasera: [chuckles] Sorry for the laugh.

Gala: What’s funny?

LaCasera: Nothing. It’s just the way you said “new look”…

Gala: But I did get a new look. 

[turns to Zikoko] 

Look at me. Don’t I look different?

Zikoko: I mean, technically, you do

Gala: But?

Zikoko: But nothing, nothing at all

Gala: So there’s nothing technical about it then. This is a new and improved version.
LaCasera: Are you delusional?

Gala: Excuse you?

LaCasera: Look, I love you. I do.

Gala: [scoffs]

LaCasera: Which is why I’m telling you this for the 500th time. There’s nothing improved or new about this look. 

Gala: I…

LaCasera: Also, the fact that you now come in different sizes doesn’t make you new or improved.

Gala: You come in different sizes too.

LaCasera: And a new shape, and people actually fuck with that.

Gala: You’re just jealous because you can’t seem to figure out what new flavour to come in.

[turns to Zikoko]

See, I have a goat meat flavour now.

LaCasera: Yeah, one that no one gives a shit about.

Gala: What the fuck is wrong with you?

LaCasera: That’s actually a question for you. Since, I got this better look, you’ve been shitting on me.

Gala: Me?

LaCasera: You can’t seem to understand why everyone now prefers me to you.

Zikoko: Actually, they like you both equally

Gala: Who asked you?

LaCasera: Relax, they’re just being nice to you. No one actually fucks with you since you started giving them a sprinkle of sausage in a handful of dough

Gala: They’re getting their money’s worth.

LaCasera: For ₦150/₦200? You’re robbing them in broad daylight, bestie.

Zikoko: LaCasera’s right.

LaCasera: Please, call me Sera.


Zikoko: Okay, what’s this about? You used to be best friends. We even thought you guys were dating at some point.

LaCasera: Me and this jealous short man? The heavens forbid. After all I’ve done for them, Lagos and traffic won’t let me fall into such.

Gala: You’re acting like I’ve ever wanted anything to do with you in the first place.

Zikoko: How did you get to this?

LaCasera: Buhari. He just became president, and everyone had to cut costs. We couldn’t live the way we used to. So I told this one we had to adjust; adapt or die. As you can see, he isn’t the best at adapting.

Gala: But I’m still alive.

LaCasera: Barely. You’ve made so many versions of yourself, you don’t even know who you are anymore.

Gala: I’m a sausage roll.

LaCasera: There’s barely any sausage in your roll!

Zikoko: What of the campaign you guys did together? “Let love rule,” and all of that

LaCasera: I have representation. They planned it. 

Gala: Also, that was a long time ago. I wouldn’t do that today even if they paid me a million dollars.

LaCasera: LOL. You’d do it if they paid you ₦250.

Zikoko: [mutters under breath] I don’t understand this.
