Anyway, so Nigeria, like a lot of other societies, is very Classist but in Nigeria it is definitely made worse and very in each others' faces.
....That should be the name of all my posts this week cos frankly I should be spanked! So much for my all mouth no action. I need to win my audience back meeeen. Okay four words (lol) - watch out this week!

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:

............This is a tribute to my favouite magazine True Love West Africa. I am a self proclaimed collector of True Love where I have all the issues since its debut. It is a glossy, sophisticated and cosmopolitan mag which features almost everything related to today's woman (young and old) such as food, travel, parenting marriage, relationoships, singledom, work, sex, fitness, health, fashion, dating, cosmetics, competitions and entertainment. I highly recommend it to any lady (or gent) and even to non-Africans.
P.S. A lot of this info would not have been possible if not for a blogger friend so many thanks!
P.P.S. Speaking of Nigeria, before you could search Google in yoruba but now we have our own page oh! See:
