When I was in Nigeria in 1989. My friend and employer Precious Benson told me she wanted to introduce me to this guy, Bolaji Badejo, who said he was the creature in the film E.T. and he was very very tall. She did not know her sci-fi films. I blew it off.
We saw him several times in the market from a distance, because he was really tall and she kept promising to get us together to talk. I am so regretful I did not pudh hr harder so he could tell me the title of the film he was in. Little did I imagine ALIEN was the film he was really in.
