Jaye is going towards a chemist.  His friend calls him from a corner. 
Juwon
Jaye, Jaye!
(Juwon looks toward where the sound comes from)
Jaye how far?
Jaye
I am fine. 
Juwon 
Did you watch yesterday match,  I told you that we are not in same level. Do you see what my boys played? 2-nill
Jaye
Your boys! Did you raise them? That you won yesterday does not mean you will win for ever. 
Juwon
Yesterday own makes us close to winning  the tournament.
Jaye
I await our time,  this time is past.
Juwon 
Once a winner is a winner  forever. Winner  man all the time. 
Jaye
For your mind. Let me go jare
Juwon 
Where are you going?
Jaye 
Chemist.
Juwon. 
Are you expecting someone? 
Jaye. 
No o, bad guy. (He smiles) I want to buy some drugs. 
Juwon 
For what?
Jaye
You ask lots of questions. Any way,  I feel headache also I have lost appetite for food. So I want to buy malaria drugs. 

Juwon
Malaria drug?  How do you know you have malaria? 
Jaye 
That is the way I feel whenever I have malaria. 
Juwon 
I tell you, I expected  more than this from you. How on earth can you think that way? This is what is call self medication  and it is dangerous to your health than you think.
Head ache and loss of appetite can be symptom of another sickness, so the best is for you to see a medical  doctor 
Jaye
Doctor,  hospital? Just because  of headache! 
Juwon 
It is more than that,  it may not just be ordinary as you said.  It may be that there is another sickness causing head ache.
You need to see a doctor to know exactly what is wrong with them he will prescribe the drugs you need to buy for you.  I think that is better than this which you want to do. 
Jaye
Is it every time I feel headache or see some symptoms  that I will go and see doctor. 
Juwon 
If you have see a doctor once and has certify what is wrong with you,  I don't think you should  be having any symptoms  often.  For your health nothing is too costly. 
Self medication  is what is costly. You might end up using for wrong drugs and it may help add to whatever  you might claim. 
Jaye
Hmm, may be I should just tell the chemist what is wrong with me.  He might help out.
Juwon
Who told  you that the chemist is a certify doctor? These days,  many people open chemist here and there but you are never sure who is who. The best thing is to see a doctor.  You may not have  to pay  much in compare to what self medication might cost you. 
Jaye
I think you are right. Let me go the other road to see a doctor.
Juwon 
That will surely be the best. Take care of your self.  I will call you later
Jaye. 
Thank you bro. Bye 
Juwon
 Bye.
