Behind the Scenes with Lans Omar -  July 13, 2024.

Hello everyone!  

From Winnipeg, Canada, respect to all my fam, fans and friends! 

The weekend vibes are here: emotional going home for AbuBakarr Bax Koroma, Abigail’s Atiga Restaurant Happy Hour resumes, same sex marriage banned in Sierra Leone, Adebayor in the question of the day, plus lots more. You're about to read another neck-breaking edition of “Behind the Scenes". This column is the radical thoughts of one guy called Lans Omar aka the “Golden Child” - born and raised in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Let's do this: The mortal remains of Abubakarr Bax Koroma was finally laid to rest on Friday, July 12, 2024, in Winnipeg, Canada. A viewing and funeral service were held at the Coutou Funeral Home, and thereafter buried at the St. Boniface Cemetery, Winnipeg, MB. A celebration of the life of Abubakarr Bax will take place today Saturday, July 13, 2024, at the South Winnipeg Community Centre, 666 Silverstone Avenue, Winnipeg, MB. Members of the community are warmly invited. Rest on Ragga Bax. May Allah forgive all your wrongdoings and grant you a safer place in Jannah. Verily, I’ll see you at the doorsteps of Jannah, Ameen!

Switching gears: Abigail’s Atiga Restaurant Happy Hour has officially resumed last Friday July 5, 2024, at the Atiga Restaurant, 329 William Avenue, Winnipeg, MB. The Happy Hour is happening every Friday starting from 5:00pm to close at 1:00am. With a free cover charge, you’ll enjoy the live beats & lyrics of DJ Nazer while munching on some delicious food and playing around good company. The food is priced at reasonable prices so you would be able to afford it while you chill.

Next stop: The Sierra Leone Parliament has condemned same sex marriage and informed Members of Parliament and citizens that there is no same sex marriage in Sierra Leone, Speaker Honourable Segepon Solomon Thomas has announced. He said Sierra Leone might be a poor country, but the fear of God is upon the people, so the country cannot tolerate same sex marriage. Going forward same sex marriage in Sierra Leone is a crime and anyone caught in that union will be dealt with according to law.

Question: Wait a minute – where is political comedian Adebayor? I told you guys Adebayor is a joke, and now he’s gone underground. Nar learning process.

Finally: Again, the weekend is here! I’m going to be chilling with my daughter Ms. Maryam Omar at Peri Point; I’m going to treat her with some peri peri chicken as a special moment for graduating and been accepted at the University of Winnipeg. Thereafter, we will be heading to Kadiatu’s daughter’s graduation party.

Fellas, if you’re partying over the weekend, you know the rules, right? Drinking alcohol and driving is strictly forbidden in Manitoba – don’t drink and drive!

Have a great weekend! Lonta. 

I'm out of here!  

Cheers fellas!

The Golden Child.
