THE WEEKEND

Started with a celebrity sighting, and not just any old celebrity sighting, as in one of all those 5 kobo Nollywood actors but..... wait for it...... drumroll please.......... NELLY!!! and NAS!!! Aaaaaahhhhhhh!!! I'm sure some of you might be rolling your eyes by now [dem born you] like "hiss, i thought she was going to say freakin Tom Cruise or some shit", but pele o, I looove Nelly, not such a Nas fan but I totally dig Nelly.

It started innocently enough, I went to the Transcorp Hilton to get an airline ticket, as I was leaving i spotted an old friend Gina and I stopped to chinwag a bit, then we noticed a minor commotion at the entrance. I was thinking it was just one of all those attention seeking politicians and their minions when Gina nearly pulled off my arm hissing "look, look". I was just like who could it possibly be, as in it cant pass Yar Adua, when this guy walked into the lobby surrounded by Big Mike type guys, i was just like who is this person? Then it hit me, it was Nas! Nasty Nas himself in the freakin flesh, I coulda choked, I and Gina were just like shiiiiiit!!!! As always I had my camera with me and I was like this is perfect blog fodder, but my legs failed me, I couldnt go to him, my friend would hit me and be like "say something", me I'd be like "you say something". We demoed like that until Nas went past us, as in he was so near I could have touched him.

I had barely recovered from that, when i started hearing wispers "Nelly, Nelly, Nelly", without wahala I whipped out my camera, as in this one na die! I would wrestle one of his bodyguards if they didnt let me get a picture. But the guy was a no show, guess who showed up instead, the St Lunatics including Murphy Lee [who's my favourite Lunatic]. I was just like I guess Murphy Lee's as good as any other sha,m I can manage that one. So I went up to him and asked to take his picture, the guy was so nice and obliging, he even opened his backpack and gave I and Gina free cd's [i guess that's what happens when you're not a huge star just one of his entourage], like I heard Rihanna's a total bitch, but I digress. Anyhoo, as I was getting ready to take the picture, Nelly walked in and Murphy Lee was like "thats the guy you want, not me". OMG! I felt sooo bad for him, I was just like "nooo, its you I want, I even prefer your music". Y'all shoulda seen him, his face just lit up, he was so happy and I stood there and took a picture with him while my heart was with Nelly, it was painful but at least it was my good deed for the year.

They're so much hotter in real life, like I love Nelly but you and I know he's never going to win any beauty pagaents. But he actually looked better in person than on television. Nas just defies description, hottt is not the word. My cup runneth over mayne.



That basically heralded a truly mad weekend with the Mode Magazine [Ugly Betty should totally sue] Men Of The Year Awards which was a bust and my friend Adanna's birthday which was a blast! Had a really fun weekend, plus my friend Jen was in town too for the awards where her company, Polo won Best Luxury Brand [impressive eeh?]. It was a fitting end to a really tough but sometimes fun 2 and a half months in school, I'm going back to home this week, to my family, my friends and my boyfriend. What more could I ask for? Yaay, next stop, Lagos!
