Every Thursday on Top Moring with Area Mama is another day to travel on the proverbial lane and surf the internet live on the show. The show started at 6:00 am as usual and people started sending in their updates at about the same time.
The traffic updates from: Ajangbadi, Ojo, Barracks, Maza Maza, Akute, Alagbole and Mangoro revealed that there was a heavy traffic in these places. However, the traffic at places like: Lagos-Ibadan expressway, Surulere, Sholuyi, Abule-Egba, Ketu, Ikotun, Oko-Oba, and Third Mainland Bridge was quite light. The weather in all these places was quite breezy. As people sent in their traffic updates, they were also asked to mention their favorite days of the week. Several people mentioned Sunday- for obvious reasons- they get to rest and make out time to worship God. Some other people chose Fridays because they say it puts them in the mood to have some fun during the weekend. Still, some others picked Saturday because they say it’s the time they have to do other things than work. Some other days of the week were mentioned as well.
For the Yarn-Free Zone today, we listened to songs from the likes of: Eagle Eye, Cranberry and Natasha Beddingfield. They were all expressing their love in different ways. After this, Tosyn surfed the internet for interesting sites, and encouraged everyone to do the same and share their findings with everyone. She also shared the latest news she found on Twitter, Facebook, msn, hi 5 and some other interesting sites she came across. Some other people also shared their findings on topics ranging from sports to entertainment.
After this, we had the Top 9 Moments with Aramide. The first findings she came up with was about the results of a study that showed that TV viewing and screen time are associated with elevated blood pressure independent of body composition in children. The next bit of information was that Columbia Pictures has solidified its plans to bring a Michael Jackson film- complete with footage of his final rehearsals in preparation for a comeback tour. There was also something in the news about Chris Brown’s assault of Rihanna. The case was scheduled for a hearing yesterday has been rescheduled for August 27. Finally, on the sports scene, there was news about Liverpool being poised to complete a deal to bring Roma mid-fielder Alberto Aduilani to Anfield.
To cap it all, we travelled down proverbs lane. This is the segment of the show where people got to recite proverbs in various languages other than English. It was phuhn!
At a few minutes to 11, Tosyn signed out on the show.
