hehehehehe... Please am I the only one who thinks it funny that it's Friday again? Where did the whole week go? As a matter of fact, the month of May is over just like that. How can? Can't say that I'm complaining sha; the faster we get to December, the better!

So what's been going on with everyone? How was y'alls week and what do you have planned for the weekend? I'm still contemplating on whether or not I should say how I think my weekend will go after all that happened last week. lol I can't believe it's been a week already! Umm... I think I'll just wait for the weekend to go by and then, I'll recap. I cancel every jinxing spirit in the building lol.

Yay, my lil bro graduated, from high school (hehehe), yesterday!!! See all the pride I have for this boy just flowing last night, I couldn't even control it. I had to stop and use that breathing technique so as to avoid any form of hyperventilation or overwhelming feelings. yes o, please it was that serious. Even before his name was called, see people (well mostly girls lol!) just yelling his name and screaming all over the place. Kai! I couldn't help but think about what my dad would have been saying or feeling if he was here.

RIP daddie, I know you're incredibly proud of your son o! Anyway, It was a great celebration sha, the only thing was that since his last name is kinda at the beginning of the class roster, we had to wait for all the other names to be called before the whole ceremony was over. OMG, how many frigging graduates did this school let walk in one night and then started the program at 7:30PM. What da? Just too long abeg! Next time start the proram at 5PM or something. Person didn't even get to eat afterwards cause most restaurants were closed and then the one IHOP we decided to go to was so packed, we gave up and just went home.

Anywhoo today is my song-spiration day and in honor of my bro graduating, I decided to put up the song I plan on using for his slideshow we'll present at the graduation party we plan on giving him in a couple of months, before he goes off to college.

It is titled If Not For Your Grace by Israel & New Breed, off of their new album A Deeper Level. I just absolutely love this song to pieces and thought it would be the most benefitting song for my brother cause if not for HIS grace, where will he be right? Playing american football is not the easiest thing (all the training and practices one puts in and then the hits you give and collect), some questionable friends that he might have hung out with, those near and far trips he took, the random coming in and going out. I can only thank God and say if not for Your grace...

Enjoy the upcoming weekend everyone!!!

I've been meaning to put up a new post but if y'all only knew. So I totally jinxed myself this weekend, funny you should ask Ollay lol. Ugh, Saturday with the amazing plans I had... I was in bed. Sunday supposed to be at church and participate in the picnic... I was in bed. I probably should have been in bed on Monday but then my Sunday afternoon/evening kinda picked up.

Alright rewind. Why was I in bed? *Hiss* I swear, up till this day only God knows. All I know is that I woke up around maybe 3 or 4 in the morning with a really bad tummy ache, throwing up and going to the restroom like a mad person. I know, I know, too much information but puh-please it wasn't easy jare. Ha! God punish that meat kabab I ate on Friday out of hunger.

So that's how my whole drama started o. It didn't even matter which way I slept, it was all extremely uncomfortable. Couldn't so much as eat cause my mouth was extremely bitter. And to top off the mother of all atrocities, yours truly lost weight! Yes o, you heard me right. Pounds that have no business looking for somewhere interesting to multiply just slipped through...only God knows how... in a span of like what, 24 hrs? Kai! I'm still in shock but I'll take consolation in the fact that people still insult and envy my size. God dey!

Ehn ehn back to Sunday afternoon, so like I mentioned I didn't go to church but the rest of my family did. Stayed home all bored and so uncomfortable, drifting in and out of sleep. By like 2 0r 3PM one of my good friends, BeeZee, called and asked is I had received her text. Which kine text again or am I going deaf too? Anywhoo sure enough her text had come through but I guess I can blame it on my drifting in and out of sleep. Turned out that we were supposed to be meeting up for our once-a-month Sunday get together shindig that same day. Oohhhh..... of all the Sundays ehn?!?

(I digress) Just a little history here - BeeZee came up with this great idea of taking turns to host a small group of us one Sunday out of every month. It's nothing original but the idea came with perfect timing, therefore I thought it was a great one. Usually whoever is hosting picks the Sunday well ahead of time and informs the rest of the group but this month has been crazy with events and stuff going on so when the collaborators actually "mentioned" the date, nothing seemed finalized. We started this year in January and we're still on a roll! I thank God for good friends, my list is definitely growing.

Anyway back to what I was saying, please ask me what I did after my friend called and gave me the update, yes o can't say that it was one of my proudest moments but this girl right here managed to get up, took a long shower, and got ready. All the while still convincing myself that I wouldn't miss it for anything. Kai, see justification and guilty conscience! (No to church but yes to get-together). But goodness that was the longest 2 hours ever sheesh! Anywhoo to make the story short, that change of environment was very much needed cause I felt a little better later, slept over at BeeZee's place, and still managed to meet up with my other friend to make-up for Saturday hehehe. Good time, good time. God is good jare!

Please before I sign off on this post, I need to shout out hysterically to my namesake (and I say that with all the pride I have within me) SJ for hooking me up with Lara George's CD Forever in my Heart, and TY Bello's CD Greenland!!! You RAWK mehn! I bet with all the replies you got from me, you probably couldn't have guessed that I was in bed sick, right? Yeah that's what pure excitement and genuine gratitude is all about. Thanks a million again! Wow, I can't help but be also thankful that I actually put up my CD wishlist... God is good!!!

Well more like a video really.

Can y'all believe it's Friday again already? I don't! This week has gone by so fast, I'm not even sure I remember everything that happened lol. So what do we have planned this weekend? Well whatever it is, I hope you have fun and stay safe.

Me? Not much but it's definitely going to be exciting (right). No but for real, I have stuff lined up for Saturday, then Sunday is our SS class parties followed by the Church annual Koinonia (look up the meaning, it's quite simple really) picnic, and then Monday is Memorial Day holiday! Woohoo for those who're taking Maymester classes and Yeahhhh for those who're supposed to work.

Anywhoo, today's segment of Friday song-spiration is, like I said earlier, a video. First of all, there are four new videos from P-Square's new CD Game Over (love 'em despite the fact that they've tainted that love with their dark side... ugh), and one new one from Storm All-Stars (love 'em ever since that "Eko" song). Check out the Storm All-Stars video below and lemme know what you think. If you want to see the P-Square ones go to Bella Naija; I put them up here before via another website but had to take them down cause they weren't working as they should. Like "they" say, we know all things Nigerian... I totally love all of them!

Storm All Stars: Made In Lagos

Love this video! Love it, love it, love it!!! Lagos is absolutely beautiful. But was that really Lagos? Sorry that was just my reflex thinking; just had to ask sha lol. Have a happy weekend everyone!!!

Woohoo!!! Okay so apart from the useless nonsense that seem to find its way around once in a while, words cannot actually describe the feeling I have right now. I mean, I don't even know how to explain it! I could scream but then people here would think I've gone crazy; although some people think I've gone beyond that level already. I could also just start crying but I think for this case, it'll be just a lil bit over the top (I said just a lil lol).

What is it that I'm going on and on about? Check me out... while trying to obtain some of the CDs from my wishlist (yes I have one and don't pretend you don't know cause I know you see it on the right side over there; yes over there), yours truly found a CD she has been wondering about for a couple of years. Anybody remember Dele Bamgboye at all?!?!

I digress for a sec... I remember the other day one of her songs, Mago Mago, came into my head and I just started singing whatever lyrics I could remember. And then I was like "Dang, long time. Who even sang that song?" Can you imagine, I couldn't even remember her name! Then I started remembering most of the other songs and then that's when it hit me - OMG, I miss my cousins from my mother's side (lol)!!! It was at their house I first heard about Dele and by the time the week was over (cause we went over for a mini vacation type thing), I pretty much had every song down in my head.

Alright back to what I was saying: yes o, I've found my Inspiration CD by Dele Bamgboye!!! I even had to update my wishlist with it just so I can keep telling myself that I've finally found it and I have it for sure for sure. My mom is definitely going to think that I have some type of power this time. Cause she said everytime she "turns around", I seem to have songs that she remembers from way back when or songs that are just like "whoa". LOL hey her words not mine.

Can someone please tell her for me that you can pretty much find just about anything online nowadays. Just make sure you mention something about sending in the payment cause she tries to avoid anything online payment. Can't say that I blame her jare when her *I mean our* people have turned the world into their yahoozee playground. HISS. I'm just thankful for all these people who are making these extinct artists available again. I mean that CD was released when? In the 80s? Early 90s? And back then, it was only available on cassette. Cassette. Kai

Anywhoo, I also hear she's now a Pastor in one of the Winner's Chapel branch in Ghana or somewhere like that. True or not? God bless and prosper her very well o. I'm still appreciating her work up till today. Okay so you might be wondering where I found the CD right? Yeah I know, don't worry I'll tell you lol. Audio Lunch Box is the place and I still don't know how I even found the website. I was finally looking to buy my Benita Okojie CD (which I got, as well as her sophmore one too) when I figured maybe it would be best to click on the African Genre link to see what else was available and then BAM! Dele Bamgboye right there staring right back at me.

I was kinda skeptical at first to buy the songs cause in the very beginning I thought I was getting the physical CDs (yes o my people start patronizing your people by buying originals!) but then duh, the website is called audio lunch box, what was I thinking??? Mehn after debating for only God knows how long, I decided to make peace with the fact that at least I'm still supporting by buying the tracks, CD-R or not. It's all good jare. So I can't wait to download the songs, copy them, and start burning a hole into my car CD player hehehe!


So to really show how grateful I am, I'm dedicating this post to my baby sister Ebunoluwa Oseaghume Akindele.

09/03/1991 - 05/19/2000. Dang, eight years today and it still feels like yesterday! I celebrate your life; you were just too much for this world abeg. Apart from the fact that I think you were God's gift to those who knew and loved you, I guess God wanted you almost right back cause He was really in need of someone with some correct dance moves while His angels praise Him. OMG, I think I just had an epiphany about something, with that statement I just made. RIP baby girl!!!

First of all, it's Friday woohoo!!! Honestly it's not fun to say it's Friday anymore, at least for me. Cause by the time you look up to thank God for the weekend, it's Monday already! Again, at least for me. I remember a while ago whenever Monday rolled around and I was back at work, some co-workers would ask me how my weekend was and I kid you not, all I could say was "Seriously, I don't even remember". No it wasn't because I went partying and got drunk, coupled with a hangover the whole weekend but because it went by so fast I didn't even have time to take everything that happened in. Anyways... I still thank God for Fridays.

So I was thinking maybe it would be a good idea to put up one song every Friday (if I remember and have time lol) to just inspire me for the weekend coming up. I really don't know why but lemme see if it'll make a difference sha. Plus I love music so it shouldn't hurt to share the one song that I'm really "feeling" during the week right? Alrighty then, first one up... titled Worthy To Be Praised by the one and only 'Ronke Adesokan off of her debut album Bigger. I don't know exactly what it is but I am just so in love with this song, well among some others on the CD too. I absolutely, absolutely love Ronke Adesokan! Her amazing voice is one thing but then I dunno, maybe it's her ad-libing that just blows me away. She's incredible I tell you; if you don't have any of her CDs -Be Still and Bigger- mehn, I would like to feel sorry for you lol.

Anywhoo click play, sing along with the lyrics provided, and be inspired to praise God more cause He's worthy! Enjoy!!! And of course, please lemme know if you love it as much as I do. Have a great weekend.


Lord You're worthy to be praised
I come with my hands upraised
Worthy of all the glory
Worthy of my worship
Forever, Worthy of all praise

I've tasted and I've seen your faithfulness to me
Through it all You've been my peace
The lifter of my head
Words cannot express my praise
Worthy, Awesome, Holy, Jesus


Worthy is the Lamb, worthy is the Lamb
You are Holy, Holy are You Lord God Almighty
Worthy is the Lamb, worthy is the Lamb
You are Holy, Holy are you Lord God Almighty
Worthy is the Lamb

I can't say this enough but I am soooo in love with 9ice's Gongo Aso album!!! I mean from start to finish. Kilode? lol The dude is just too much jare and God knows I barely understand some of the things he says o! His yoruba kinda reminds me of how my grandma used to talk. All those "gen-gen" yoruba words hehehe. Artists like him are really making me fall in love with the fact that I am Nigerian and I am darn well proud to be one. The only other thing now is that the music videos need to start pouring in quick quick lol. Hands down, my favorites: Street Credibility, Photocopy, Kasa Final, Gongo Aso (by default sha). Thanks for the autograph...Muah!!!

The Mrs. Club. One word - HOT! Mehn, if only there was a better word to describe it completely. I so believe all the reviews out there about this book, and that's the main reason why I didn't dare pick it up to read until 2 months after I got it!!! How crazy?!?! Puh-lease, I had school to deal with and I didn't want to deceive myself by indulging. But kai, it was worth the wait. I finished that book in 3 days and that's all because I had work; I'm sure I would have been able to finish it in 1 day though. 2 thumbs up Ekene!

I'm still trying to get over the anger I'm feeling towards a certain creature. One of God's own creation who wants to go out of this world before their time. *HISS* Just ridiculous; I know I've been told "it's not worth it", but still just totally ridiculous. How can ehn, how can?!?! Some people need to be careful, "we" don't want charges on our head o. This one just deserves all the hissing in the world, nonsense!

What is wrong with Oprah o!!!!! Someone please help me out here; I think she finally needs some Jesus in her life. All these disturbing things that are beginning to add up around her mehn... not so kewl at all.

I'm on cloud nine y'all! (despite the fact that someone's trying to see how tough my skin is) hehehe mind your biz nosey!!! Anywhoo I thank God sha but no, I really need to thank Him properly. HE must see this to the very end. Geez, slacking doesn't look good on me at all.

Awww... my little one is going off to college soon. *sniff* Wait a minute, it just occurred to me how that statement sounds lol! Please o, I don't have a child just yet - everything will be right in it's own time (or is that not how it's said?). I meant my baby brother who is so not a baby anymore. As a matter of fact, one would think he is older than me. Some of y'all know what I'm talking about, with your tiny self!

I love my mommie! (Note to self: I need to say and mean that often).

Dear blogspot, thanks for giving me a chance to get some things off my mind and perhaps my chest. I have a very good feeling we'll be "seeing" more of each other cause this works for me just fine!

Why are people so trifling and shady???? Ugh, it's so sickening. Absolutely cannot stand it! Grown folks need to grow up and be better examples, geez. Please o, if you claim to be real then be real. How hard can it be to follow through with what you say is your philosophy? You came up with it, nobody begged you, so then why the pretending? Whose integrity are you smearing other than yours? Are you kidding me? Please watch yourself sharpish o, watch yourself. You've been warned but you'll still hear from me, best believe! Ugh, such a bad taste in my mouth...

..... end of the school semester that is! Goodness, it's not that serious o lol. Ah, I can just see it. Two more days and I'll be a free person - well until next month. Unlike the picture, I have to be ready for the summer again. Not planning any vacations or even bothering to have a life either. Ugh! Hmm, it hasn't been easy but God has been faithful. Just when I thought I was going insane from all these impossible deadlines, I found some peace to pull me through. Father God, I am grateful! I am grateful, very very grateful. Still have a couple of things to round up and then a major group presentation on Saturday, and then I can lift up my hands and shout...
