It’s corn season again, corn on the cob…on the go! The delicious delicacy is ready and available along various streets, roads and those strategic corners (prime real estate) of populous intersections. From Surulere, Okokomaiko to Mushin and even Lekki and Victoria Island, the golden grain is sold piping hot. You’re never too far from a corn seller in the fabulous Centre of Excellence.
The women (their sole preserve!) that sell this treat come in various shapes, sizes, hues and dispositions. Some are as sour-faced as they come and don’t entertain ‘unnecessary’ bargaining a.k.a. don’t waste my time, that is the last price! On the other hand others engage in cheerful banter with customers whilst this age old rite is performed.
