share on:

Yay! Chidinma aka Ms Capable was chosen by the King of the Lagos All Parties, Mr Capable … BANKY W for the very 1st 360 Date based on her very capable comment below:

MS CAPABLE TOO SAYS:

March 27, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Dear Banky W,
I feel a little awkward, pleading my case before you. I’ve heard people describe you as, suave, intelligent and even as a prince charmante. Pour moi, considering I only know the e-version of you, its safe to describe you as one who breathes life into lyrics. As a female who loves good music, I’ve followed you from: my regrets, to Mr capable, to don’t break my heart, and Lagos party. I’ve bumped to every beat, screamed with delight for every nominations/awards you’ve received, laughed heartily at your writeups(the very articulate and direct response to Mr Reuben Abati, and the humourous albeit true bb rules of engagement and other posts on your blog) and prayed silently for all the goodworks you do, that we are not aware of. I know how cliched it is, to write all of these here, but I need you to understand that even if I don’t get to be your choosen date, I’d still buy your cds off notjustok.com (I stopped buying them off the streets, after I realised its implication on your finances), tweet at you even though you pay me no heed, bump to your tracks and keep you in my prayers.
A certain talented songwriter said, “…the greatest always want more…” I wish this for you – greater heights and enormous success.

Your Fan
Ms capable

Chidinma & Banky W went for the 360Date at the small quaint Orchid Bistro restaurant (located at Green Village, No. 58A, Isaac John Street, G.R.A, Ikeja; visit their website to find out more on them)

Chidinma’s 360Date experience:

There I was racing to Orchid Bistro, images of Ben10’s omnitrix flooded my mind – only that watch could save me now, I kept telling myself. I kept urging the baba whose cab I took, to drive faster… I swear he was snail-driving on purpose.

Occasionally I would go on twitter to check new posts – @BankyW was getting tired of waiting. @Nobsdaslushhkid was getting ready to throttle me.

I was 1hour and some minutes late – who keeps a celebrity waiting? Oh right! Me. All thoughts I had of appearing picture perfect, with the disposition of a couth female flew out of my head as the cab screeched to a halt in front of the venue. My shoe buckle had come undone. This wasn’t right. My 5 minutes of fame and all this was happening? After much feet dragging outside the gates, I bounced with determination to the entrance.

Banky W was all I expected him not to be – funny, down to earth and just okay looking (so he says #feignedhumility). After the initial greetings and marathon photography session by the resident photographer (Noble), the gist started flowing. First impressions they say, speaks the loudest. I had fallen short already, so I figured I should be myself and enjoy the rest of the date.

I had a glimpse at another side of a man I respected and knew – in the virtual world – the feeling was unbeatable. I totally was my silly self; acting the part of the razz lady effortlessly, the agbero coalition would have envied me.

I even got the chance to watch ‘Nobs Almighty‘ turn on the memoirs charm on an unsuspecting female.

All in all, I had a good time.

Priceless goofy act: my bbm had my name spelt with stars for I’s. OMG! The look on Banky’s face = priceless.

Please read his bb rules of engagement for more insight to this reference

Thank you 360NoBS.com for making this happen and seriously Noble, I didn’t mean to ‘chance’ you neither was my request for takeaway serious. Let’s just say, I was having fun – I have a weird sense of humour.

Orchid Bistro is one place you should visit – the food, the environment and the people were wonderful. I will return there, someday soon.

Chidinma

    Thumbs up to 360nobs for making a fan’s dream come true. This is all so sublime! 🙂

  5. Suspense almost killed me while i was waiting for the update of this 360date. Well done Nobs.

    Honestly, Chidinma is really intelligent and smart. Nice write up. Oh she’s also lucky to have a date with Bankyw. He is my idol and i would do anything to meet him one day!

    Banky boo u re so cute and humble. I have got mad love for you!!

  6. Nice….

    @Mag, what does his hat have to do with eating? It’s part of his style, I see no reason why he has to take it off to eat…..

  7. Nice one. I like seeing stories where celebrity come off their constellation and interact with us mere mortals. I’m not a huge Banky fan but I acknowledge his talent. I’ll love to see more 360dates. Put Nneka on and see me write my heart out!

  8. Great concept Noble, i usually vacillate between frowns, smiles, laughter, and disdain at your memoirs of a slushkid. However with this one you hit the ball out of the park…..good job. looks like an idea thats here to stay!

  9. I am humbled by all your kind words.
    The date was so much fun, and I appreciate Banky for waiting.
    @Mag, the hat is Banky- he calls it packaging, and I think the brand is very appropriate. Plus I wasn’t offended by it, table manners works both ways:he put up wit my raz nature so please forgive the hat.

  10. Dear All,
    This is to inform you that we listened and offered Chidinma a slot.
    Chidinma is now proudly Team360nobs.
    I hope you’ll be back soon to read her first official article next week.
    Thank you you for the support.

    Best,

    N

  16. @Mag, i concur! That kammie bitch is rude and stupid. who the hell r “common people”??
    @Kammie, Fool you dont know that artists are NOTHING without their fans. Go figure! After God, the fans re the reasons why artists exist. Attention-seeking whore must you broadcast to the whole world that you were involved in the 360date selection process??? GET LOST.
    @Nobs, honestly, kammie lacks work etiquettes and she must be cautioned asap!
    @chidinma, Congrats on ur new job jare. Looking forward to reading ur superb write-ups!

  17. forgive me if i am wrong. So Banky didnt choose his date? i think that was one of the rules of participation; noone had to ‘convince’ the star, lest they would be disqualified. in my opinion, this sheds new light on his choice.
    Please admin, we need to know why the ‘staff’ had a say in Banky’s final decision.
    biko come and tell us o, i dont want to conclude and say na ojuro

  18. Dear Nobs,
    thanks for clearing that up. i think i was carried away by kammie’s comment.
    *whew*
    i dont think kammie works with360nobs people, so please dnt disintergrate her comment. she is an independent fan and we appreciate her coming to banky’s aide.

  25. Chidinma, you are a really good writer and if I had the opportunity to meet you 1 on 1 I’d say ‘start your own blog’…… There’s something special about your writing style.

  26. Some goo writing skills mahn. A good natation as well. I wish I had the shance to meet him too, I bet you I would not be able to eat that lunch, dinner or whatever meal of the day it was. The guy is so smooth. ” the do like say I dry craze, o boy you too much ” say yeh ah

  27. Dear Mag and Shiela,
    When i said i “picked” d winner, i meant i did so on d comment section like dis.if u take ur time to go thru d section of selecting banky’s date u will see my comment there, saying to me Ms capable was the winner..
    And as for the common people talk, if u also take ur time and luk closely at my comment i referred to Jazz’s letter: which is Dear Celebrity also here on 360nobs. if u had gone thru that letter only then will u understand wat i meant by common people…
    try to check w facts before getting yourselves worked up aint no need for that ok
    cheers

  28. o my gosh! dis is jes so cute!love love love this… kudos to nobs for doin this…. was totally rooting for ‘ms capable’ initially, and was totally happy she won! she looks so simple,no over the top dressing.i actaully was expecting the winner to wear the most uncomfortable short gown that one cant use in bending down with heels like that of lady gagas and make up like that of a clown but u took it simple, girl u rock! luv ya write up as well, u are a good writer jes like me sister.
    banky, u are handsome has ever and lovely hat as well….

  29. Oh wow this is so cool. And Chidinma writes so well.. I bet it was her beautiful writing that made Banky subconsciously choose her. I’m so envious. Oh and I couldn’t help but notice Banky’s hat. Even on a date? Haba. I bet 5naira he sleeps and takes his bath with the hat!

  30. Hahahah IGHO! 5naira? C’mon
    So happy for you Chidinma *kudos*
    I hope i get a chance wiv ma Mr.Incredible(MI)soon?!
