Today was the first AREA! show after Area Mama, Sweet sixteen, Agent 009, CON.tra.dic.tion, SPEECHgirl and Tosyn Bucknor’s birthday, you know they’re, humh...... “sixtuplets”, born on the same day, by the same mother at the same time (don’t ask me how that happened). Wishing them all a wonderful year ahead, filled with the best of all that life has got to offer.
AREA was really energetic, with Nigerians in true "Nigerian style" all wanting to know how Tosyn spent her birthday and weekend, and Tosyn in true "Tosyn style" somehow sidestepped it until she discovered she couldn't avoid it when everyone kept asking, I'm sure many of you saw her on TV on Sunday. Today was also the day to create new words, we had words like edoyakly,inkokonistaklic, metabulocious, otapiapianomatopia and many others that i am sure if i type, my keyboard will just break.lol.

• The two men who carried out “Britain’s biggest jewel heist” involving 40 million pounds and 43 items, despite being caught on camera, are yet to be found. A reward of a million pounds will be paid for information leading to their arrest. Shan’t I like to know where they are now?

THE WEATHER REPORT
The sun rose today at 6:05am and is expected to set at 7pm. Early morning cold conditions and wind-chill continue, so remember to stay warm. Maximum temperature is 29 degree Celsius and minimum temperature and overnight low is 22 degree Celsius.
Today was 2-for-1 Monday, so we had two songs each from etcetera, Rooftop MC's, Eben and many others. We also had the Top Question for today, which was "Would you ever, should you ever go for an ex's wedding", so many people said yes they would, but methinks it depends on the breakup, was it messy, was it clean, free of animosity, then fine, but if there is still serious beef or serious feelings, why torture yourself unnecessary.
That's all for today
Till tomorrow. Have a wonderful week
