Representing your A.R.E.A is already becoming the favorite prospective bride of Lagos metropolis and its environs. You know there’s nothing like hollering about your area with the combination of Tosyn Bucknor, Naija blonde, Sweet sixteen and Area mama steering the ship…today was no exception.
WOMEN ON TOP
We had motions, commotions and sundry emotions pouring forth when “ladies only” were permitted to call in and express their experiences of heartbreak. It is always interesting to hear just how much ladies have to say about men breaking their hearts. The course of action were as varied as the number of women that called in, some just basically decided “no-more-guys”, others were playing the game giving their guys a hard time, some didn’t understand why their relationship was on a break. Basically ladies had a lot to say about guys breaking their heart since guys were not allowed to call, you can always make your comments here.
Like Tosyn (or was it Naija blonde) reiterated during the show, “a broken relationship is better than a broken marriage”.
I’d say we need each other much more than we can ever imagine God made it that way and we can’t reject what/who we are. We just have to do it right, right?
TOP 9 MOMENTS
There were very interesting scenarios today:
· Hillary Clinton reassuring Nigerians as it were that we featured big in US plans despite the fact that Barack Obama is visiting Ghana, not Nigeria and in my understanding of world politics, that’s a message they are passing across. We obviously don’t feature much due to our under handed treatment of issues
· Another was the fact that the British speaker was forced out for excessive expenses; the USA speaker is being supported by her colleagues though she lied. Excessive expenses vs. lying? Hmm…Different strokes!
· Did I hear correctly? The NFF chairman said he should be stoned if the U17 football team doesn’t win the world cup. He obviously doesn’t watch football these days because it not mathematics as they say, and x in mathematics can take up numerous values. Stone?!
· Then we had Kanye west pleading guilty to charges about assaulting a paparazzo down to Mel Gibson settling out of court over under paying a writer for the blockbuster-Passions of the Christ.
We had INFINITY in the house and it was a fun and enjoyable 45minutes or thereabout. They confirmed that their group wasn’t broken up (though they are now four) and were working on their sophomore album with a couple of producers like Wole Oni, Cobhams Asuquo etc though Sunny one of Infinity produced their debut album. They mentioned the various Nigerian artistes they fancied like Asa, Banky W, Sunny Ineji’s Ojoro.
When asked about how it was back then,check what they said: We didn’t choose to drink garri, garri chose us”, “we were locked up”, “trekked from MiTV to…”
They also let it drop that they were remixing “only praize” from their first album and were working with some other artistes like Rooftop MCS and Lagbaja
There was an inspiring story about a lady on the verge of suicide but heard their song and decided to stop her suicide act, did a t-shirt with “I am a superstar” and came to church to give the testimony.
It was good hanging out with these guys.
