Zikoko stares at their phone as they walk into a bar.
Tequila: Join me
Zikoko: No, thank you.
Tequila: Ahan, are we not friends again?
Zikoko: When did we become friends?
Tequila: Zikoko!! Feel free, relax.
Zikoko looks around the full bar.
Tequila: It’s for me. They’re here for me.
Zikoko: Is it your birthday?
Tequila: You’re joking, right? Obviously, you know why they gathered for me.
Tequila: Ahan. My album just dropped na. Hot stuff, fire music.
Are you hearing that song right now? That’s me.
Zikoko: Actually, that’s AG baby.
Tequila: What’s the name of the album?
Zikoko: That doesn’t matter.
Tequila: Just say it.
Zikoko: Tequila Ever After.
Tequila: Gbam. That’s it. The album and I are namesakes, which means the album is mine.
Zikoko: That’s not how it goes.
Tequila: Tequila Ever After. I’ve become a legend.
Zikoko: Because Adekunle Gold put “Ever After” beside your name?
Tequila: I’ve been a legend before then. Don’t look at me with small eyes, I’m big. Big buzz, if you try me, you go loss.
Zikoko: Who dashed you?
What’s your favourite liquor?
Tequila pours a clear liquid into a shot glass.
Zikoko sighs and takes the shot.
Tequila: How was it? Shebi it was smooth?
Zikoko: That doesn’t prove anything
Tequila: It does. I do my work, and I do my work well. No complaints.
Zikoko: (under breath) Gin does her work well too.
The music in the bar stops and everyone turns to Zikoko.
