My mission, and i have chosen to accept it, is to get this in before Oye pings asking for it. I shall let you know which came first, the ‘ping’ or the ‘send’.
The good thing about having a million and one things to do on a Sunday is that you move around a lot quicker. And that just helps you notice how much we spend in traffic as Lagosians.
Speaking of ‘Lagosians’, i was at the video shoot for the song by Slim T of the same title. Slim T is signed to Tripcity, same as Tasti, Ola and Sukiyaki. The shoot seemed like fun, and i saw Efa, Elbama, Funbi, Tasti, and more. Can’t wait to see what the final product will look like
Well let’s see. Inspite of all the hate it gets, Monday is actually not a bad day. There is work to do, some chilling to chill and most of the Monday jokes get you by. For me, i even always wake up on Mondays with so much energy that you would think i slept in an oxygen tank.
But Tuesdays? You hit that snooze button more than once, you become the office grouch, and you just want Wednesday to come by now now now!
Maybe that’s just me!
I got some good news on Tuesday. Well my sister did. But hey! Her companies have been nominated in the The Nigerian Event Awards, three categories. Best Event Planning Company (Zapphaire Events), Best Ushering Company (Zapphaire Ushers) and Best Decor Company (Furtullah Concepts and Designs). Wishing her all the best.
And also to Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi, Toolz, Twiterave, 360Nobs and all other nominees in various categories, i say congratulations! ‘’Jeans for Genes 2’ won in the Best Charity or Cause Event category last year so i know how it feels! And a quick thank you to all who support These Genes.
Speaking of These Genes, Tuesday was World Sickle Cell Awareness Day. Here is a video i made for ‘Passion of Praise’ answering the question #WhatIsSickleCellhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZW5myDH_hw&feature=plcp

#OneMicNaija #OneMicJune is this Sunday so as usually happens, this week was all about rehearsals.
Rehearsals was fun though! Sometimes at rehearsals, i am like, ‘’this is the show! Without the clothes and the ambience’’. But rehearsals are always crazy. And it is also a great time to catch up with the artistes
The longest week day for me by far!
My mission on Thursday, was to find THE OUTFIT.
The Outfit on this occasion was the one outfit i could wear and turn from casual to ‘party’. And i went for this simple navy blue dress with flats during the day and heels in the evening.
Well first i had to be at work, and then i had to go with some One Mic Naija performers on their media tour. And then! Later that evening at Rodizzio, it was the Official Unveiling of the Next Top Talent Season 1. There were performances by JPX, Big Choll and Yemi Alade and it was hosted by Top Radio OAPs like Wyse, Aramide and Uche.
I think someone must have told me that at some point but i didn’t listen. But when not completing your maths assignment is the only thing you have to worry about, then you don’t even know you’re living in good times! Wait until you need to fuel your car and pay your rent.
I spent the rest of my Saturday tying up last minute One Mic Naija loose ends and praying for a call.
Did it come?

In the meantime, remember, if you keep living by other peoples’ rules, you will wake up at 50 wondering what happened to your life. And then you will realise- other people lived it!
