Sing it to your special one.  Do you take the taxi in your country?  Do you think the taxi driver can marry you?  Do you have unconditional love for your spouse?  Do you think you are promiscuous?  Do you think you are faithful?  Do you think you'll make a good husband?  Do you think you'll make a good wife? 


Nigerian radio stations, please play Mandy Ojugbana's "Taxi Driver."


Hairdresser, Lady Doctor and market woman, you are lucky.
