(Prince rokanmi yells out at the guards)
Prince rokanmi: you all are good for nothing in this palace ,just a simple task ,find me just a girl
Olori 1:Hmm (interrupts) rokan I think you should speak calmly to the guards, and what’s the matter ?where is gbenga?
Prince rokanmi:must Gbenga be in charge of everything?
Olori 1:Ok what’s the problem my son?
Prince rokanmi: am not your son and even though I tell you there’s simply nothing you could do about it so just leave me alone ,I can take care of my self I don’t need your help.
Olori 1:but I can be of help if you just tell me what the matter is ?
Prince rokanmi: (sighs) well there’s this girl and I really like her a lot I saw her this morning and have been looking for her but I can’t find her
Olori 1:whats her name ?
Prince rokanmi:umm I don’t know her name
Olori 1:hmm I have an idea ,you see eliot (faced on of the guards) call the town crier, deliver this message to him ,tell him that afternoon tomorrow all the eligible maids of awele should be present in the village square then anyone you like you will pick rokanmi
Prince rokanmi: but it’s only that girl I like
Olori 1:you might be lucky if she attends the festival
Prince rokanmi: yes yes you are so right! thanks you so much (hugs Olori 1 as Olori 2 sees them)
Olori 2:rokanmi!!!!!!(in anger drags rokanmi away from olori 1)
