on the 6th day

The "bestest" American National anthem ever. no lip sync-ing.

Yes shade at Beyonce.

Whitney H- Performing the Hell out of the American Nat.Anthem

I feel like Nigeria has so many damn official events.

We should have more artists performing our National anthems.


Political activists and public relations officers should look into this please.

And on the fourth day of Christmas...

I give you one of my most recently discovered treasures.

German machinery tuned to the finest possible specifications.

Mr Kodjoe, Boris. Butt Naked. In the real husbands of Hollywood.

And here is a clip to prove it.

Don't Worry. You can not see anything.

Although little is left to your imagination.

Christmas came early this year

Side bar- This show is HILARIOUS!!!! I can not get over how good it is.

On the third day of christmas

I am a 90's baby at heart.

I love the black leather. the over exaggerated baby hair, the skinny brows.

The powerful music with horrible music videos but well meaning lyrics.

I love 90's music*.

Anyway, I found a video that embodies all these traits and is my theme song for December.

Tell me if you want me to
give you all my time,
I want to make it good for you.

because December is the month for taking charge.

* I love the 2000's music too.

Side bar, a hearty congratulations to my mother. Today she was her investiture as the President of the society of women accountants of Nigeria.

I love you mummy. But why do you have to raise the bar so damn high?

On the 2nd day of Christmas.

This weekend had me experiencing several bouts of nostalgia.

In waves and waves.

In the spirit of home sickness, nostalgia and the reason for the Christmas season- Jesus,

I give you:

Abo Abo- Volume 1.

To douse all confusion. I'm part Isoko* and this track has been a staple in my Sunday mornings as well as car rides with my mother and summer holiday's in Warri and everything else.

It was one of the foremost gospel productions from the Niger delta and my mother played the Shit( pardon my french) out of this CD.

I speak Isoko passably, but can sing along to all the songs in this production.

Ps: Abo means hands in Isoko, so basically he is asking you to clap. Also they are subtitled.
Note that the production of Niger Delta gospel tracks have improved significantly.
This was a pioneer.


pss: This is just part a of a 5 part production.

*Isoko- is a tribe from the Niger Delta where my mother hails from, and I claim occasionally when I want to get out of the garb of being Yoruba from time to time.

Read occasionally in the above statement to mean- ALL THE DAMN TIME.


I keep getting little signs that maybe I am on the right track, Just maybe,
