Hi out there. It’s been a long time coming. Phew. Like I’ll always say, we on 360Nobs are charged with the utmost responsibility of satisfying your every desire as regards POP CULTURE, as well as quenching every of your entertainment thirst.
In the light of this charge, we present to you our debut Pop Culture and Gist zone known as JORDAN’S JUICE. And yes, my name is Jordan, that Jordan boy you hear about all the time. I am in your face like the air you breathe, the water you drink and the food you eat. You have to love me and it is by fire and by force.
JORDAN’S JUICE is strictly about my lifestyle, what interests me and what I want you to know. Trust me, I lead a stressful but fun-filled life.
Jordan Abiola, I am a Non-Conformist. I am incredibly clear about my opinions, grounded in my own sense of identity and very assertive about being me so I am not easily swayed by what other people think of me. I am a sucker for pop culture and this is my ZONE!
Although I draw inspiration from quite a lot of things, I am very opinionated. ( I think everyone is, * shrugs* ). I wouldn’t say I was forced to start this column, but I took a cue or two from my role models at work, Samantha Dimka and Noble Igwe. They need no introduction cos you should know them. Yes, they are way famous than I am, or you think.
So the 2015 AMVCAs (The Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards) holds tomorrow at the Eko Hotels and Suites. The Awards is a brainchild of Multichoice (DStv and Africa Magic people). Yes, they will be awarding 9 categories so if you haven’t voted, there is still time to (at least). You can go vote here. I have voted and the winners will be awarded based on our votes.
Moving on, I was at the venue of the pre-event preparation with my boss (I mentioned him above) and he was given a room based on his status in the industry
Yeah, lets make his head bigger than it is and how hardworking he is. To be honest, he is such a smart worker. Anyway, this piece is not about him, but about the AMVCAs and the juice, JORDAN’S JUICE. I sat in my room and decided to write my heart out.
You know the way the Oyinbos ( The Western World) do their thing, The OSCARS. Our own version is The AMVCAs and believe, we are up to the task. With what I saw today, the event is tomorrow, need I remind you and we are more than prepared.
From the Event centre decoration to the management, the team, the Red Carpet, everything is just fab. Although I couldn’t get enough pictures, I was able to capture some moments and I will definitely share them in the course of this gossip. Yes, it’s gossip, Exclusive Gossip!
This evening, they are having what is termed “Nominees Cocktail”. So my photogs got me very nice snaps before the guests arrived. Here we go…..
Yeah, those are the pictures I am able to share with you at the moment. So back to the room gist, this room is not my room but you know how they say it, when you enjoy the privilege of working with a big man. Yeah, I was just lying on the bed, and trust me I was working. This kind of job I work, you have to be emotionally capable, stable and intellectually equipped.
I was just taking pictures and pictures (Trust me, Kim Kardashian learns from me cos I am way addicted to this habit), I made myself tea, watched some TV shows, jumped on the bed like a baby will and what have you. The room service called to ask me how I was coping, of course, I was fine! My boss left me to tend to some executive duties, so please i beg of you, let me enjoy the moment biko.
You don’t see moments like these and let them pass by. You have to live it! I mean, literally. The snaps below will definitely explain to you how playful I can be. Enjoy the moments with me, please.
The Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards will be awarding excellence in the Television industry and entertainment in Africa. I hope I get to attend tomorrow. You know why? Because I am not yet as famous as I ought to be, so DSTV doesn’t even know my name not to talk of sending me an invite! Hmmmn, diaris God oh. My hustle must pay off soon!
It’s a wrap. Please I beseech you use the comments section as well as you can. Let me know what you think about the AMVCAs and who you are voting for. In addition to that, JORDAN’S JUICE will be published every Friday, so come into this zone and let’s unwind and talk about anything and everything!
Don’t miss out on any of the happenings in this highly anticipated event tomorrow as 360’s Fashion duchess, Juliet Gbemedu and her team, will update you on every bit! Meanwhile, don’t forget to share these with your friends and spread the word. (Very soon, I will be giving away goodies in every of the JORDAN’S JUICE articles). You better not dull! *
