Thanksgiving approaches....


So we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Nigeria but we have a lot to be thankful for......most of all, for life, so many tragic events, plane crashes, people passing away, we should all be thankful.


I just realised I never announced on my blog that one of Nollywood's finest actors JT Tom West, passed away after a car accident at the end of September, more on the story here.


Bella Naija also had a post sometime ago on survivors of cancer, its sad to also see the passing away of Tola Okoya Thomas, who died of breast cancer at the age of 28. Here is her memorial site, you can pay a tribute or light a candle.


As I am a soul music fanatic, it is really sad to have confirmed that Gerald Levert died last Friday after a heart attack, more on the story here.


Also, today would have been Stella Obasanjo's 61st birthday, visit her memorial website here to pay condolences.

May their souls rest in peace. This post may seem sad but it also tells us that we have a lot to be thankful for, so quit complaining and thank God for today.

On a brighter note, thanksgiving celebrations (in yankee) are in order! Click on the flyer below:





Amplifyd will also be there i.e. in Atlanta on the 24th of November for thanksgiving. For more info - click here. Visit their myspace at http://myspace.com/amplifydmusic

RIP to all.With all this sudden deaths here and there and people's lives being cut short before they can carry out all they have been sent to earth for…all I can say is
“LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST…SEIZE EVERY GIVEN OPPOTRUNITY..and just ENJOY IT”

“O death, where is your sting”

Life can be cut short at anytime.

Any man's death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind. Therefore send not to know for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for thee.

Why do you love louis vuitton ? If you're like most brand enthusiasts, you're probably drawn to their exclusivity, prestige, and trend-setting style. We all want to invest in Show Spring Summer 2009 that are durably crafted to stand the test of time, but let be honest -- there's more to their appeal than just practicality. In addition to ensuring that your Stephen Sprouse Collection is sturdy and well-made, you also want Suhali Leather a chic accessory that will turn heads as you head down a busy city street.
