Omoni Oboli et moi!

Last night my friends and I went to see Sin City but after an excited chat with Omoni Oboli I immediately changed my mind and decided to watch Being Mrs Elliot, I think it was the way she confidently said I would be glad I chose to watch it. And boy, was I glad. 

Ok, so I'm not a big Nollywood-movies watcher, there's just always something lacking even in the best of productions, Being Mrs Elliot is an exception. 
      The moment the movie begins you may find yourself wondering if you're about to waste yet another two hours of your life and if you should just get up and quit while you're still ahead, a few minutes in and you find yourself relaxing into your seat and thinking this might not be so bad, after all. A few more minutes, the plot is already being played out, the story is coming to life and you find yourself gradually being sucked in. Just when you're about to remind yourself not to fall in love just yet; Nollywood movies have a way of leaving you high and dry like a cruel lover, the comedy takes over and as you burst into uncontrolled bouts of laughter you find your mind losing track of that particular worry. 
     While I've never availed myself to AY's brand of comedy, he brings a unique flavour to this movie that leaves you in stitches from laughing so hard. 

Majid is smoking hot as usual, and once again I'm shattered that Nigeria cannot claim him to be ours, he's easily one of the best actors West Africa! Actually, Majid wasn't the only impressive actor, all the characters translated their roles to perfection, and am I the only one who thinks Uru Eke is underrated?

But seriously guys, don't you just hate it when you go to the movies and everyone is talking loudly, muttering excitedly, squealing, exclaiming, crying, shouting, laughing belligerently? Well, be prepared because even you wouldn't be able to sit or stay still. You will be one of those annoying noise makers at the movies when you watch this one, it's completely unpredictable and divinely hilarious. 

My friends and I were constantly arguing and analyzing points (not many Nollywood movies have that effect), or frequently giggling while simulateously on the edges of our seats. There was not a dull moment, but what was more impressive is that this movie had so many elements which are usually lacking in Nollywood movies; true romance, drama, comedy, suspense and the best; unpredictability. All wrapped in one! And that last element is the reason I doff my hat to Omoni; any Nigerian movie that leaves me completely uncertain as to how it would end up until I get to the very end, gets applause from me, Being Mrs Elliot takes the cake. 

For me the only minus in the movie was the several layers of foundation on Omoni Oboli's face in some scenes. Also I wish they'd gone about the numerous advertisements or brand publicity with more subtlety, in such a way that you could watch that scene and take note of the brand, without knowing that the producers actually intended for you to notice it. It was a bit too obvious.
     But save these two points, I'm completely in love with this movie, so much so that I'm going to do something I've not done in about 10 years, since Ego Boyo's Keeping Faith; I'm going to watch a Nollywood movie a second time, I'm watching Being Mrs Elliot again tonight.

And no guys, this isn't a paid advertisement, I'm genuinely impassioned by what I watched last night. I've always known I love Omoni Oboli, but I only just found out why last night. 

Go check it out guys!

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.

One More Post...


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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
