(The following morning)
(Kabiyesi laying on the bed helplessly as Olori 2 enters with Gbenga)
Gbenga: what are we doing here and why do you want my son to get married to a girl he barely knows
Olori 2:rokanmi is not your son you stupid excuse of a man
Gbenga: well you can’t deny it ,rokanmi is and will forever be my son ,only if he knew that he isn’t the biological son of kabiyesi! He is the son of a servant
Olori 2:that was years ago gbenga
Gbenga: years my foot, I ll go out there and tell adewunmi everything you have done since you arrived this house ,I tell her that you were the one who ordered me to kill her son and that son is or may still be alive

Gbenga: I will not do that bamike, If you want to do it you can do it ,I ll never kill the king of awele, have said my own !(exits)
