Hi 👋 Sisi..
It’s been ages I shared a tale, no excuse, just the usual workload and of course the “life happens” mantra. 🙄
No life-threatening event has happened since I last posted, the usual same ol’ same from the Naija govt., with a twist of ‘cluelessness’ from our president saying we the Nigerian youths are lazy, he made this statement in a functioning society, (I refuse to accept that, beacuse millions of us youths work our ‘butts’ off to make a living in a non-functioning, less thriving environment we call a country)😑😑. Also, one of our fierce singing senators in the name of Dino Melaye was arrested and the comic relief of seeing him being stretched into the courtroom (story for another long day) really worths the laughs 😁😃.
I followed this year’s season of Big Brother Naija; though my favourite, Tobi, didn’t win, my second favorite housemate, Miracle did. As a social experiment with all the twists, shenanigans and drama the show is known for, this year’s so far has been emotionally draining, both online and offline, especially with the power of social media. It exposes a lot of Nigerians that are biased, full of bile and incapable of making a point without insult or hate. Not going to invest myself like I did next season, will just be a passive viewer. With a lot of assurance (Davido made this word quite popular of late, with his N45million Porsche car he gifted his girlfriend/a song in her honor… “I go love ohh” 😍) I believe the young man, Tobi (he deserves all the accolades (another trending word with the help of Charles Okocha) who I supported will go far in life and do great exploits. 😊
It was a wonderful feeling seeing you once again. Thanks to you and your beautiful friend Esther, who invited me and my lovely friend, Idowu, to her wedding. Naija cannot carry last when it comes to parties whether back home or in the diaspora, we always represent with our proud and rich culture, our food, dance, and Naija musicians making us proud with hits after hits of great music being showcased during the traditional wedding ceremony, even other nationals could not resist to get on the dance floor… Not forgetting the souvenirs too.. 😆. It was a great honour to also meet one of Africa’s finest artistes, Black Prophet. I do hope to attend one of his shows or concert soon enough.
Thanks to my uncle and aunt who showed us round Philadelphia, with the rich historical background, architecture and having the famous Philly’s cheesesteak. Visited Atlantic City, New Jersey..tried my hands at gaming at the casino..suffice it to say, I need more practice with my poker face game on.😆
With families and friends of mine who have made this God’s own country home, I salute their hard work, tenacity, patience, love in building careers, home and at the same time remembering loved ones back home….I’m not entirely sure I want to make it mine as well… But then, where the heart is, is always home… So, never say never!!
