The Weekend

Its kinda weird posting about my weekend on a Wednesday when another weekend is almost upon us but seeing as this blog isn't exactly financially viable and I have a proper job suing people for obscene amounts of cash , TWP sometimes has to take a backseat to my paycheck. Luckily though, today was payday *yay* so I thought I better post real quick while I'm still feeling rich and happy with the world.

Had a fabulous weekend, it was my neegar Oyidiya's birthday on Saturday and she had a house do and an after party at Rehab, in the tequila-laden hegzitement I forgot to take pictures at the after party so I just have from the house shindig.

My outfit to Oy's party. I was feeling very retro 60/70's that day, hence the gingham mid-riff baring top, high waist super flared pants, heavy bangs and Priscilla Presley eyeliner.

Lems for days

Sunday was the almighty Innocent Idibia aka 2face's concert at the Expo Centre of the Eko Le'Meridien Hotel which basically just shut down Lagos. It was the best concert by a Nigerian artiste I've ever been to, even on the same level with the Thisday concerts. We were at tables that sat about 10 people with bottles of wine and finger food, the Expo center was just faboosh, the event organizer Cecil Hammond did a great job, I was really impressed.

Wearing my pink jewelled caftan by Fashion For Life which I said in an earlier post I was gonna wear to the 2face concert. this was said before I even had a ticket, as I always say "confession is possession" "speak and you shall receive" lmao!

Oy, still on a high after throwing a mad party the day before

The following pictures are from the skit 2face did with Nollywood actress Tonto Dike, whom I'd never heard of till that night. It was for the song "Flex" which 2face did with R Kelly (fleeex, time to have get my drift). Anyhoo, in the first scene Tonto was on a couch in a white man's shirt and moving along to the music, she then started to take the shirt off. I was a bit alarmed till i saw she was wearing a nude shimmery bodystocking underneath. She and 2face then went behind a screen which was lit up from inside so we could only see their silhouettes. They then started simulating sex, from missionary, to standing up to doggy, to oral, they did everything. At the beginning I'd been frozen in shock that someone actually attempted this in Nigeria but I started to get the ingenuity of it. It was a BRILLIANT performance, like whoever choreographed it and thought of it is a bloody genius. I saw over on Linda Ikeji's blog, a few people were like the girl's reputation is finished and all that, which I thought was absolute bollocks. I don't think any less of her after seeing that, I even now respect the versatility she brings to her craft. If you decide to be an actress you might as well be ready to go all out instead of constantly been safe. Its going outside their comfort zones that won actresses like Halle Berry and Charlize Theron Oscars, anyhoo I digress, it was my favourite performance of the night.

Performing African Queen, he had this girl with the sickest abs I've ever seen in Nigeria, I thought my stomach was flat, this babe's own was CONCAVE (the one with her hands on her hips, not the Fulani one)

The show ended at about 2am, which resulted in my not getting to work till 10.30am the next day. It was sooo worth it.

*sidebar* Nigeria is 50 on Friday and its really not that big a deal, yesterday morning 15 schoolchildren were kidnapped in Abia State and instead of diverting resources and manpower to their discovery our government is gearing up to celebrate Nigeria's independence in such an obscene and disgusting way that I can't even quantify it. The Nigerian governments flagrant abuse of the county's massive wealth is mind boggling and the fact that its not even done covertly but to our faces is ludicrous. Yet there's nothing we can do, we can all stand on our soapboxes, tweet, blog, go on the radio about it yet nothing gets done. Our present and past leaders have utterly failed us and we can only look to the future and pray they do a better job.

God bless Nigeria.


  1. i love that word 'gingham', I don't say it enough. I usually say 'check' as per boarding house fabric!'re killing it in that pink caftan. Saw you over at bellanaija. looking fabulous.

  2. Hahaha abt talking of your weekend on wednesday. It happens.
    Everyone has given tuface's concert wonderful reviews. I'm sure many other artist will now be looking to replicate this kinda show for themselves. Abt naija turning 50, shewwwww, it is really disgusting, the amount of money wasted on nothing. We still have no education, infrastructure, etc... Quite annoying.

  3. I think you are an interesting writer. Plus you looked really hot Saturday :-)

  4. Great photos and great commentary, I really enjoyed reading it! It looks like you had a great time!! I really like your hair :)

  6. lol solid weekend! Now im wishing I could have attended the Tuface concert. I have heard only good things. Nice pics and hope the euphoria of pay day is still upon you :)

  7. word: FABULOUS!! U r a wonderful writer and this was an interesting read. Last weekend was insane, currently still in recovery. X_X. U came thru for me and I love u for it.<3
    I concur with u on the tuface concert....hard work really does pay. To say I was impressed would be an understatement..the guy is amazeballs(so also banky and tiwa savage). But I think the highlight was the tonto dike skit- my heart was in my mouth!! Jizox!!

    New motto for the rest of the year: confess and possess!!!
    Looking forward to this weekend already. Love u :*
