Big Brother Amplified!

Its no news that i love watching Tv. Big brother is starting on the 1st May 2011 and i am excited. They are starting pretty early this year which makes me wonder if there will be a part 2 towards the end of the year.

There are 14 housemates as usual, 8 of which are girls, a girl is representing nigeria this time around and i hope the show will be as interesting as Big brother all stars......i know the chances are very slim.

Now i have to compulsorily upgrade my subscription, don't ask how much i was paying before.

Happy workers days in advance!


The Wedding Royale...

I am so excited about this wedding, yes its halfway over but am still excited. I have been so interested and highly anticipating the wedding since the beginning of the month. Congratulations to the Prince and the Princess of wales.

Reading about the british monarchy has been very interesting, a royalty being allowed to marry a commoner indicates to me that anything can happen and nothing is impossible. The part that excites me most is how Queen Elizabeth II was crowned. Her grandfather had two sons, her uncle and her father. Her uncle was elder and of course succeeded her grandfather when he died. He was still single when he was crowned king and when he finally decided to get married, he fell in love with a divorced socialite which of course was unacceptable except her forfeited the throne.

That was exactly what he did, he gave up the throne for the queen's father and the queen became the heir presumptive and that was how the she became second in line heir to the throne. This makes me wonder that what if her uncle had married a royalty and had children? She wouldnt have been queen and now she is and we all know the rest of the story.

Now, i couldnt watch this royal wedding like many other people because i was at work, i followed bbc online and i have been getting updates. Luckily, there is a dinner in the evening so hopefully i would meet that when i get home. It was a fairy tale wedding and i wish the couple the best in life.

An Easter to remember...

I have finally been baptised.

I am glad most especially because it happened on a very remarkable day, Easter sunday. It is very significant with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Before I begin explaining the process, I shall bore you with the hurdle of getting to church. I drove all the way from the mainland, my brother wasn't around and so I was on my own, mum volunteered to come with me and I knew that meant I couldn't speed like unwanted so I told her not to bother. I sped like James bond. I recall checking how long it would take me to get to adeniji adele from 7up and it took me just 11 minutes.

I wanted to meet up with the part of those who celebrated their birthdays during the week so the church would pray for us. As soon as I got to church, that was the announcement being made and I was excited that my speeding was not a waste after all.

Back to the baptism, I alongside the others were baptised in a pool. We were immersed backwards for 3 secs and that was it. The immersion represents the death and being raised represents the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and when it got to my turn, there was a White dove and a voice saying "this is my beloved daughter with whom I am well pleased".

That's the story of my baptism.

Our beloved ones...

We might have lost one person very dear and significant to us, death is inevitable. We all will die, and I am not trying to scare anyone but truth is that life is very short. 

I remember loosing my dad, and I never would have believed if anyone had told me that he wouldn't see his grandchildren, but he didn't, he is gone. For me I have been reflecting about people who have died, this season is really about reflection.

Another person who came to my mind is dagrin, a very young guy whose career had just begun but was snatched by the cold hands of death, I didn't know about him when he was alive but after he died, I listened to his songs and I realise he was very talented, he was the best lyricist the entertainment industry had, in my own opinion. But he is gone, it's a year now but his work still lives on.

Also a colleagues brother who is also a friend passed on last December, his death was so painful, very painful. I couldnt believe it when I heard, it's a different thing entirely when someone you personally know dies. His death was very sad.

Just recently, another person in the entertainment industry passed away, Ashley Nwosu, he was an actor and a very popular face in nollywood. According to sources, I heard that he was critically ill before he passed on.

I could go on and on and on, the truth never changes, life is short and  death doesn't say when it's coming, it doesn't. I implore everyone to live each day like it is the last and always pray, for yourself, your family, your friends, colleagues and everyone you know, prayer has saved lives and it will continue to save lives.


Happy Easter!

Easter in my own understanding is the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Because he resurrected and he is alive, we have hope and our faith is not in vain. In the Anglican church, we would say, Christ has died, Christ I risen, Christ will come again. Like my pastor says, it's a time when we reflect on our life and appropriate Christ's death and our christian walk as Jesus is the reason for the season.

I love Easter because it is a time of remembrance of Gods love for us even when we forget, he was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and nailed to the cross. A lot of hymns come to my mind, one of which is "when I survey the wondrous cross", "the old rugged cross", any hymn which talks about the cross. I love hymns, and I must confess is one of the things I have missed about the Anglican church, I shall be married in an Anglican church by God's grace, I don't think I can trade it for anything in the world.

Let's celebrate easter with the death and resurrection of Jesus at the back of our minds.

Happy Easter people, Jesus is alive!!

Birthday girl

No one knows how much I love birthdays with or without parties. You should see my childhood pictures. This year's birthday was fantastic, I had a very good one and I enjoyed every bit of it.

The day started with phone calls as usual and a zillion facebook messages and seriously am not exaggerating. I really thank God for surrounding me with very beautiful and wonderful people, I am indeed blessed. More than 80 percent of my friends used my picture as their dp on bbm...I really felt honoured. God will honour you guys!

Work was great, my colleagues sang and prayed for me, everyone said I looked good....was looking very hot, had a birthday makeover and looked very brand new. Lunch was on me with no drinks inclusive...yes o, sugar is bad!

Rounded off at mercy place for mid-week service and got back home to meet a very beautiful cake courtesy Chy. It was quite eventful and am very grateful to God for adding another year to my life. I give Him all the glory.

I dedicate this post to my dear friend...... Sere.

This young lady just added another degree to her name, she bagged a Ph.D last week. Being proud of her is an understatement, i was over-joyous when she updated her status on bbm and i knew the news already.

She is one of the very few friends who attended same secondary school with me and still holds a very special place in my heart even though we are miles apart. While in school, we weren't always together because we were in different classes, but the bond was always there...don't get me wrong, we are 100% straight.

I remember crying so much the night she was travelling to the US, it felt like my world was coming to an end, i was sad for a whole week. I thought i was never gonna see her again....

I have seen and spoken to her so many times after that and when i remember that night she was travelled, i laugh at myself.

I raise a toast to you Sere, and i pray that God almighty perfects everything that concerns you and also that He disregards our "yeye" dreams that we both have but surprise us beyond our expectations.

Much love sis.

Dream on...

I have been having very weird dreams. I have dreamt about so many things these past few days. First, i had a dream about my close friend getting married without informing me. I went visiting her that day and realized she just got married. She looked so much like Kim kardashian in the dream. After i settled in, she got herself something to eat and didn't offer me anything, i was quite disappointed and confronted her in the dream, thats the last i can remember. The night before, i watched "keeping up with the kardashians". Imagine!!!

Secondly, i watched this nollywood movie based on recommendation, infact i had to buy the movie, because i was certain i won't get to watch it on Africa magic until 2013. The movie was about a womanizer becoming a manizer, am being careful with my words here, i hope you all understand.

I had very nasty dreams the night i watched the movie, and i am glad i can't remember the details. This has made me realize that there is a high tendency for me to dream about anything i watch before bed time.

I must confess that am glad that i have an explanation for this weird dreams otherwise, i would have freaked out!!!

My daily routine.

I have two alarms, one rings at 5.30am while the other one rings at 6am. Most times, i stick to 6am, cos in a funny way, the sleep always get sweeter at 5.30.

I say my morning prayers and get out of bed. I shower get dressed and am ready to go. I get to work, we say our prayers and i log in to youtube and search for my songs for the day. Today's search was: Obey, Lucky Dube and Eric Donaldson. Youtube is the only way i get to listen to music and my computer has stopped playing cd's.

I always have lunch between 12pm and 2pm and depending on what i eat i might stop being productive. Work continues and i start looking forward to 5.30pm.

I close from work, get home, go jogging if i feel guilty, go to church if there is a service, or watch E! or Africa Magic till i fall asleep.

That is how my day goes and it is NOT boring!

Tuesday, 5 April 2011


I don't feel so well but i have got good news to share. My friend & colleague put to bed this morning. I was ecstatic when i heard the news, am really very happy for her, everyone is, and we give God all the glory.

Now sad news, a uk pastor that i liked so much, i remember always watching him on tv years back and never used to miss his programme is being jailed for sexually assaulting teenage boys!!! The news is so unbelievable, i was in shock when i read the news and almost passed out when i saw his picture to actually confirm his identity. Wonders will never end!!!

So am gonna be baptized on sunday and i am scared already, not that am so afraid of water, its just that the whole process of dipping my head in water just makes it look like am gonna drown and i am seriously praying not to be the first person to be immersed, that way, i would have gained more confidence.

5.30pm on my mind.
