Obama Bahama “No Relation”

Obama Bahama “no relation” at Georgetown’s
Bahamian Music Heritage Festival.
He looked mah-va-lous, in his colorful getup at the Bahamanian Music Heritage Festival.  When I told him as much and asked if it was alright to take his photo.  He agreed, on the condition I was in one with him.

Deal.

“My name’s Obama Bahama.  No relation,” he said, his hand outstretched in introductory and close-the-deal handshake.  A gaggle of trailing music festival staff ladies tittered.  “I’m hot!” he declared to them, with some bravado.

 “He’s not!” they countered, giggling more. “I’m on the spot!”  he retorted, definitely a man prepared to get in the last word, in a rhyme every time.
