Ise, a poor farmer with a lot of problems and a tumultuous marriage is visited by an angel with a message. God has seen all your troubles and is tired of your marital squabbles so he sent me to grant you one wish each. Ise requests that if anyone or anything climbs his orange tree and he says “Grip Am” the tree will grab the climber and not release its grip until he (Ise) tells the tree to let go. In one comedic twist after another, Ise uses this power to get everything he wants. He even traps Angel of Death on to tree and makes him swear not to kill him or his wife ever.
Ola Rotimi, the Author of the Nigerian Pidgin English Dictionary, wrote Grip Am entirely in Pidgin English and sends a more serious message beneath the humor.
Do not miss out of this awesome experience.
