Ebony Life. In LUST with THE SPOT.

Hey! So if you've got dstv and you love to watch TV like me, or even if you don't, you must have at least heard of Ebony Life TV. Well in case if you haven't, its Mo Abudu's TV channel that has claimed the spot (pun intended) of channel 165 on DSTV. Mo intends to change the way Africa is viewed by showcasing the posh, sorry, positive side of Nigeria and Africa as a whole. Its targeted at a particular demographic,18-34, but my opinion is that it further targets the (upper)middle class in this demographic.
It produces and broadcasts various shows from talk shows, to drama series to reality shows. I really admire what Mo Abudu is doing, it's an effort worthy of praise. Ok, I don't know why I'm trying to give an indepth analysis on Ebony Life TV when all I want to do is talk about The Spot, actually, the hosts on The Spot.
       Succinctly put, the spot is a "concept" that combines talk show with (pseudo) reality and celebrity news and some other things I'm really not quite clear about. The show is hosted by Lamide Akintobi, Zainab Balogun and Ebuka Obi-Uchendu. I wish I could tell you in detail what the show's about but I'm sorry, I can't. I watch the show, it's just that I rarely seem to be able to relate to some of the topics, or maybe its because when its on, my wandering mind wanders.... I mean, there are already enough foreign channels and talk shows on foreign news and gossip. I already have E News telling me what's going on in Hollywood. Wendy Williams dishes on Hollywood celebrity gossip, the Talk on MNET, not as scandalous as Wendy but even more informative. There's Joel McHale on E, Chelsea handler as well and recently Hello Ross. In fact there are too many that its some times information-overload so when I turn to our local channel and I start hearing about some foreign actor who I can swear thinks Africa is a country, I inevitably zone out. That's not to say there's no local content though, there actually is, it's just that most times its overshadowed by .... 
        So why do I watch them you ask? Simple. These people are great to look at. Individually, they're all hot, all three together, they give my eyes an orgasm. Let me begin with Lamide, journalist and former presenter on Channels TV. The full lipped, brown skinned rare beauty who makes us jealous of her variety of intricate hairstyles and a toned body I can have, only in my best of dreams. She's the most talkative on the show, and better for me, I get to watch those unusually wide, full lips move. With each word I'm mesmerized. How could I know what they talk about when I see those lips and my mind, as usual, wanders to thoughts that I may have to confess to my Priest about on Saturday? Did I mention her enviable cheek bones? OMG! She argues her point and then Ebuka counters it. My attention reluctantly, yet eagerly, moves to him. Ebuka, former Big Brother Nigeria housemate, lawyer, TV presenter etc etc etc, is two words, Eye Candy. I don't know what to focus on, he's so beautiful. His smile makes me blush even though he's "inside" the TV. His mind also fascinates me, he has an opinion on everything. Smart and Sexy as hell. Hmmmm I WANT!!!. I look at him and I think, Perfection. Perfect height. Perfect teeth. Perfect smile. Perfect body. Perfect tattoos. Those tats and his schoolboy face don't quite go together, which only makes me think, "a man of many layers, a man of mystery". Right now I'm trying to keep my legs from shaking... I find myself wondering if even those parts of him we cannot see are just as perfect *wink*. He goes on with his witty anecdotes and then Zainab cuts in. 
         Zainab. Zainab deserves a paragraph of her own! Former model and actress with a bachelor of law degree ...... If only I were that gifted in poetry I would write an Ode to Zainab. She's sort of like melted butter scotch poured over warm velvety brown chocolate. She's flawless. From her pretty eyes to those sensuous lips to her silky smooth skin. I imagine her spending hours looking at her own reflection in the mirror, thinking "Lord I'm stunning!", amazed at her own perfection. She talks less than the two but its ok. She's a work of art, and like a work of art I'm satisfied just looking at her, soaking in the splendor of her beauty. From the moment the show begins I get so lost in these three that by the time it's over I find myself wondering what they just talked about. Lawd have mercy!


  1. An ode to Zainab.... hmmm. I'm in love Ebuka so I totally understand what you mean

  2. An ode to Zainab.... hmmm. I'm in love Ebuka so I totally understand what you mean

  3. me I don't watch that programme o! the phoneh is just too much. I think you give lamide too much credit, she's not that beautiful abeg.

  4. lol@Funmi, my exact Ebuka....oooooooooooooh baybay....that's some hot hunk...Thelma you totally got my impression of him....I've had a major crush on him like forever....he's so perfect,i sometimes think he's gay (especially with that noble igwe always hanging around him)....but even if he is jare i don't mind....Ebu, come to Mama.....

  5. Hmmmm, these your descriptions of these people, especially Lamide is rather suspect! Lol.

  6. Ok! Lamide I don't get...Zainab, ehe! Dat 1 I gree fine well well! But let us move on to d creme of d boo of life (and thunder fire any1 dat wants 2 put us asunder) Ebuka!*sigh Did I hear u mention he's inked?! Perfection jst got more purrfect! Erm T if u get a hold of his number...u know wia ur girl dey. I'll take care of him*wink. Ziggy

    1. You guys seem to need some heavily medicated glasses, well I don't and that's why I can see the beauty that Lamide is. *big grin*

  7. And here I am thinking am the only one.....Goodness I totally have a crush on this dude*sad sigh*.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
