The Love Blog



...........Have you caught the love bug yet? Vals day is tomorrow. If you haven't I suggest you go out and catch it. It's so sad, someone's msn screen name today is - "Cupid, draw back your bow and let your arrow go straight to my lovers heart for me!!" . Owkayyyy hehe...it's cute though let me not hate. Another friend also told me that she was in court in Lagos and a lawyer's matter was adjourned to February 14th and the idiot told the judge "My Lordship but that is Valentines Day" lollllll how cheeky! Nigerians - TRUE STORY!

So Val's day (wiki) is here and there are all sorts going on. Before I engage in the global weekly activities, I'll just highlight a couple of things:

  • Congrats to Mary J. Blige - my girl for life hehe! She took 5 grammy's home (single + album combined) at least I hope I counted em well! She's done so well for herself I am so so proud I can't understand lol. Will Blog on the Grammy's later this week with pics. See their site for results here.

  • Please vote for your Best Nollywood Actor on Naijavixen's blog (on the right hand side). Vote wisely - not cos of his looks BUT his acting, how he acts his different roles - Jim Iyke - hint hint! Can't believe you would vote Chidi Mokeme over him just cos he's cuter lolol oh well...) She also has a couple of valentines party flyers so check 'em out (Page 1) and (Page 2).
  • Some news - INEC disqualifies Atiku and 5 others (read here)

  • Watch the Femi Pedro campaign below (quite catchy):


Oh dear oh dear, God help us anyway such a nice AD but hmmm.

  • More politricks - election news

  • Aderemi is back and his recent post is so amazing on like a photo gallery of African Kings - I found it interesting probably cos I am into African Mythology and never really find the chance to read about it. Acculturation in Ipetumodu caused this - QC girls u feel me! I have a link to the pics here. PLS CHECK THEM OUT EVEN IF U DONT READ THE TEXT, JUST CLICK NEXT :o) Soul Bro this is for you especially - Paparazzo!
  • More news - 15 countries to Benefit from UN $85m Emergency fund - Naija is not on that list oh. Can we blame the UN, we are a rich country actually it's just we don't see the money everywhere.

  • Laspapi is a lucky man - he's been meeting up with some successful beauties and interviewing them - Funmi, Agatha and Bolanle - lucky for some.

  • Finally, Snazzy has two very interesting posts I like - The "10 signs you've been away from Nig too long" (Ignore him, he's still getting over the aphrodisiac) and "The Movie Challenge" (look at the list on his post to find out if you've seen more of those movies than him). I have seen about 102-103 not bad huh. Think someone saw 185 - LOSER, GET A LIFE lol

I ain't finished yet - Now for My Valentines Special:

  • Jide Alakija's Valentine Portrait Sessions (6th Feb - Sunday 18th Feb)


He Says:

Looking for something different to give your loved ones this year? As a special offer for Valentines day three London Professional photographers have teamed up to offer stylised portraits of you alone or together.

For more info, check out his site or the page on facebook.

  • For the majority of Vals parties, check out Naijavixen's blog but I have a few flyers below - ENJOY!

Interesting photo's of the "Kings". Sort of stuff I would like to do document and document

Sue said...

Well I am afraid I am abit of an anticupid this year as I will not be one of the lucky lady lovers, so I shall not commment on any of the red feb 14 stuff. All the shops are intimidating enough However, I think the mention of ipetumodu and african mythology was very apt as it is a keen interest of mine arising from that particular excursion also. Jinx Mona, you owe me coke :0)we should talk more on this...

snazzy said...

I think I am allergic to val's day. I'm serious, I develop a serious sensory deprivation whenever the topic comes up. though before i lost all contact with the outside world I laughed at the lawyer, was proud of mjb, was not interested in nollywood, rolled my eyes at the latest round of political posturing, feeling black history month a la mona, not caring about the UN wondering when this post is going to end, checking out the interviews, approving of my shout out while ignoring the slander, and then...

Mona said...

hehe

Pink Panther said...

Vals day – Overrated, too commercialised…. But I would never say no some chocolates….lol... (Double standards??)

RMD is ‘my’ best nollywood actor… why? He can actually act AND he’s still hot even though he’s what??? 45+… (Shallow?? Yes…. But I can’t help it).

Mona??? THIS STATEMENT WORRIES ME……………………. “Jim Iyke - hint hint! Can't believe you would vote Chidi Mokeme over him just cos he's cuter lolol oh well...)” (Are u trying to say you think Jim Iyke is cute????

Nigerian Politics – Lost cause…

Ipetumodu!!!! I missed that!!!! What a shame!!!!yeah right!!!hehe..

zaiprincesa said...

Jaycee said...

*smiles*

damsel said...

Great post... I really liked the African kings. Would make for some great picture art.

Mari said...

Happy Valentine's day Mona. I too couldn't wait to see what Google would have up on their front page. Did a quick check before breakfast and I was disappointed - Chocolate coated strawberry ... is that all? Oh well, its just valentine's day.

I love the site, Kings of Africa. Those pictures were lovely. Going back to read the stories now.

Mwah, enjoy the rest of the day.

Finny said...

Nice post, Ramsey. I don't know about this Vals day stuff. I'll let you know how it goes being that I'm in this lovey-dovey France where u can't take two steps without bumping into some couple making out (not hating lol).

I loved the gallery of the kings. I think I visited the palace of the one in Abomey when I was a kid, I remember vaguely, we had to take of our shoes and stuff.

Wale said...
