    Nice piece

    I love the part you said ” I had learnt to always err on the side of caution before taking liberties ‘. That just nailed it as it is best to always put the best foot forward so not to slip.

    I work in a multinational where first name basis is the norm but hey in as much as i call my VP who is Dutch by his first name, there are some members of the leadership that are Nigerians that i cant call by their first name-not because they demand it but i will err on the side of caution which i believe should be the principle to adopt wherever you find yourself.

    This ‘did you just call me by my first name wahala’ will still outlive us especially in Africa as it cant be wished away easily.

    I am glad you enjoyed reading it Bunmi. Truly, we need to find out what works per situation rather than just make assumptions
