Meet Tolani Onitsha, the gold-digger


The life of Tolani Onitsha could be described in one word—gold-digging. It was true. Tolani Onitsha herself loved that title, embraced the act itself. Other nouns could identity her—adulterer, murderer.

Besides those, Tolani Onitsha could be described as selfish, depressed, mean, devoted to her family, cared for her siblings, loved her daughter, hated her stepchildren but she was getting ahead of herself.

Tolani Onitsha was born to middle-class parents in Cambridge, England to Christian and Coco Onitsha conceived on their honeymoon. Tolani remembered none of her toddlerhood but from stories drunkenly told at get-togethers, it was said from the moment she saw her little sister, Ogun, she loved her. For some reason, her little sister Ogun was conceived after a failed pull-out.

Her little brother, Tobi was born four years later two weeks after Ogun's fourth birthday during Tolani's first year at a private primary school at age six, was where she met her best friend Rose Beckinsale who at the time Tolani hadn't realised Rose was a proper jealous bitch but Tolani got along with her.

Tolani's first boyfriend Lie To Me was when she was ten but she'd befriended him for three months before asking him out. Rose hadn't liked that. Added to her jealousy, she was insecure to the point Tolani spent the better part of her childhood stroking Rose's ego.

Tolani's desire to become a gold-digger wasn't through an epiphany. Lie was rich and so were her parents with amazing well-paying stable jobs but Tolani wanted the kind of wealth that wasn't adequate. She was hot, had flawless dark skin and was smart. Not lazy by anyone's standards afterall she'd worked hard to fool all her husbands, made them lavish all their affections, attention, money and sex drive on her.

Rose scowled whenever Tolani planned her dream, belittling who she was into a lazy, dependant trophy wife except Tolani hadn't been any of those except being a wife. Her parents loved Lie To Me, Rose hated him. Perhaps her parents loved him too much they decided to work harder on their marriage birthing child no.4 Mercy when Tolani was 17!, Ogun 15 and Tobi, 11.

Lie To Me proposed to her with half a million pounds diamond ring when they were eighteen. She'd almost refused as Lie To Me's parents weren't as rich as before. Calculating her reward, by the time of the divorce her alimony would be less than two million pounds.

But unfortunately Lie To Me was infatuated with her, her parents loved him like a son-in-law, his parents adored her like a daughter and they'd been dating for eight years and Tolani on birth control since fifteen had no intention of having his child.

Tolani Onitsha and Lie to Me got married.
