Anyway, I digress. But, like I said, I have always been very content with the booty God gave me. Besides nobody ever complained except for someone who once teased me that it was convex in shape. Ko ni da fun! lol! Yes, I digress again, right? Forgive me. For what i wanted to tell you is that I never had ikebe envy (AKA big booty envy/BBE) until I went to a King Sunny Ade concert recently.
Husband and I went on a date and because we had to put our clients, TE, TK and Bomboy, to bed, we got to the concert late. Nevertheless, we were having a good time when my husband suddenly remarked,
"Interesting. There are no half naked women on stage."
I laughed and said, "Well, it isn't a Fela concert, so sorry you might not get to see much booty shaking."
No sooner had I uttered those words than did 2 women, and I mean grown women come on stage. They were twins and they knew how to shake what their mama gave them. I mean, they shook their backsides with abandon and those ikebes were toned. I mean, when they shook to the left, the backside went to the left. When they shook to the right, the backside quickly obeyed. Not like some backsides that just have way too much jiggle to them, you know. Reminds me of this one time at the mall when my daughter remarked, "Mommy why is her bum bum shaking so much?" as some random lady walked by. But the girl was right, the woman's butt was just flying all over the place. Some underwear could have helped with the jiggle, as could some firming exercises for the gluteus maximus, but what do I know....
But, yes, watching these women have complete control over their ikebes sparked a little envy. I wished I could go on stage and shake my own backside like that. I told hubby, and he kindly told me that my Ikebe might not be super, but it was just fine. =)
Its been a couple weeks, and I no longer worry about those women and their ikebes. I like mine. Its small but proportionate and it works for me. But, here is a video I found at The Afrobeat Blog that shows one lady shaking it at a Sunny Ade concert in Toronto, Canada. Not the best quality, but the best I could find. Nevertheless, pay close attention to our sister working that thing on the stage. Yes, can you see the control she has over her backside? Hmmm... *looking at my itty bitty booty* It's all good. =)
BTW, you can read old Ikebe Super comics right here. Remember those? Oh, and why does the name 'Bumtight' keep coming to mind? Aunty Bumight...
