All of my people, I greet una. How una dey? How body? How pikin? And that wicked boss wey no gree give you promotion? Don't worry, there is God in everything we do. Shebi na only him waka come this earth? Tell am sey make hin kontunu....... There is God. So yesterday, I dropped a tutorial on how to tie gele and I got lot's of response and result. I'm proud of y'all (in my fake British accent *smiles*). A blog reader stated the challenge below and I'm guessing lot's of us faced the same issue today. Truth is I still face it (*covers face) but here's what I do

Hi Moby,
 I came across your blog just about a week ago and I must say this, you are really creative and good. May God bless your hand work.

About the tieing of gele that I just read now, although I know how to tie it as I once learnt it. I know it well to the point of setting the layers, but the problem I always have is making the layers stay very well and flat, especially the upper ones. I always get to the point of forming up to six or seven layers, but it's always the first three to four layers that maintain their stay.

So please, how do I form more layers and make them stay, do I have to make them stay and flat with pins(although I've never tried to use pin)? Most times I get to tie aso oke very well, but I don't always get satisfied with my tieing of sego(and the likes) and wrapper(like ankara or lace).

Thanks. Looking forward to reading back from you.

Dear Concerned Reader,
Thanks for reading my blog. I was blushing for a minute there. May God bless our handwork (AMEN). About our stubborn layers wey no gree stay, I'll advice you either make your layers before you tie the ends so that the layers will be pulled tight when tying or you tie the gele very tight before making the layers so when you're making the layers, it stays on very tight and firm. Then you use your hand to press the layers down. By doing so, you are making the layers flat. Please don't use pins on the layers o so you don't hurt yourself. Just keep pressing down and the layers will be flat.
I hope I've been able to solve our layers problem?

To our stubborn layers,
Please be staying when we tie you. Don't be giving us extra wahala when we want to make you. It's hard work tying gele then you will now want to do strong head and be removing. Abeg try and do us good when next we make you. Thank you.

 From a concerned gele tier, Moby.

So I promised to post pictures of some people that tried tying the gele and I must say I'm truly impressed. I can't post all the pictures but I'll post three of them. Kudos guys *high 5.......oya low 5...then side butt....finally chest high*. Be easy on the chest part o. No go bust pesin silicone *hehehehehe*.

Good night guys and cheers to the weekend.
