Big Brother Nigeria

From left to right: (Top Row): Efe, Gifty, Marvis and Miyonse. (Second Row): Bisola, Kemen, Coco Ice and Bally. (Third Row: Soma, TBoss, Thin Tall Tony and Uriel.

So… who else has been watching?

Enjoy it while it lasts because the morality police are complaining so much and if the sponsors and the network take these complaints seriously, it may be 11 years before we see the third series.

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding Big Brother Naija including investigations into the location, sexual activity in the house, infidelity, morality, a pastor cursing the organisers/sponsors of Big Brother and a petition by a Non-Governmental Organisation for the Nigerian Broadcsting Commission to stop broadcasting the show. Did anyone know that the Single Mother’s Association and the Married Men Assocition of Nigeria exist? Well, Thin Tall Tony and Bisola will when they leave the house if they weren’t previously aware. They have letters from them to read.

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year everyone!!!!

 

I am happy that 2015 is over, however, it was good for a few things and it did make me realise that this year has to be different. I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone that has been reading my blog, emailing me for help and subscribing. I hope you have a great year.

Fact: I don’t have 10 resolutions that I know I will not live up to. I can remember a year one day had not passed before I broke my resolution and forgot the rest. It doesn’t work if you have too many resolutions. We have to be realistic. My 2016 will be all about working on myself. I have one resolution and two rules to stick to.

Speaking through the nose

Hi.

I never thought I spoke through my nose until I came back to Nigeria. I’ve had people telling me that I speak and it sounds like “wih wih wih”. The funniest was on a Sunday. I went to a church service on the law school campus and I was asked to read a bible passage. Afterwards the pastor said that I read too fast and I was talking through my nose. Lol! Speaking through the nose for me = different intonation. Either that or I do actually speak through my nose.

I think there are four types of people who “speak through Continue reading

Travelling in Nigeria

Hi.

I am on my way to Bwari as I am writing this. I miss home already but what can I do?

I prefer to travel within Nigeria by road. I have no idea why. It’s nothing to do with the stories of plane crashes or anything, I just prefer it. I’ve been on flights within Nigeria. There was a flight where my ticket from London was booked for the wrong state and I had to make my way to the correct one. There was another when I was travelling last June for law school and that was with Arik Airline which you can read about here and here. Had no problems with the any of the flights I’ve been on at all. I enjoyed my flight to Abuja from Lagos more than my flight from London to Lagos. The rest have been pretty normal.

There Was a Country: Commentary and Review

Sorry this is being posted later than I planned. I posted this and realised that it had turned into an essay was a bit too long for a post. Sorry for those that don’t like long posts/pages. If you find it a bit long, you can always read it in chunks. I commend those who have been able to review/comment on the book and have been able to keep it simple and short because it defeated me. There is so much to talk about and I cannot summarise to save my life. I have decided instead to leave it as it is and publish it as a page instead of a post. One thing that redeems me is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s review is just as long as mine. 🙂 Click HERE for a link to the commentary/review or you can find it to your right under the pages link.

Thanks for reading. I really appreciate it.
