Good Weekend Updated!




...........Yep it's Monday Morning. Hope everyone had a good weekend? I know it was excellent for some, the likes of
TaureanMinx and DonChiChi and everyone else who attended the ThisDay Music Festival.

ThisDay online has some news on the concert here and don't forget to watch out for ChiChi's experience at the concert on his Entertainment Briefly blog and I'm sure Bella will have something up about it soon.

As for me, my weekend was fun fun, I partied woohoo!

Have a nice week and I will be back here with my iPod, Podcasts and Apple Store post soon (I'm still frustrated about that o, I have not forgotten lol)



Update Oh: Let's just say I really didn't think the ThisDay Music Festival would be "ALL THAT" but apparently it was!! As inn I am deeply and truly pained, I really honestly want to cry that I didn't go but I am happy for Nigeria that it went well. I will advise you to See Bella Naija's blog for pics but read Don Chi's E Brief! for a full account, while I have the Amebo/Gist that they didn't seem to add on to theirs (wink wink) see below:


  • Where should I even start? The performance was too mad i.e. Jay-Z's that a street has been named after him in Kwara state - Shawn "jay z " Carter Street near the University.
  • Busta Rhymes apparently yapped George Bush and Tony Blair saying they were told Africans were suffering but he sees us enjoying. And why not? Apparently people pulled up in Rolls', Phantoms, Ranges, Bentleys, S 500's and everything, the people that came with Jigga were so tripped!
  • Jay-Z was meant to perform for 30 minutes but he stayed for 2 hours! They had to tell him to stop and he was so fascinated the crowd knew all the lyrics to his songs that he was just throwing everything at them!
  • Snoop was high on not just the crowd alone - Go Figure!
  • Missy refused to perform on stage and that she entered the crowd.
  • Bank MDs and big boys in Gidi, senators and governors were just dancing like mad.
  • And finally, Beyonce's version of our National Anthem was off the hook! Can't wait to hear it (sniff!)
  • Pics from Jay and B's UN Africa Tour here
