Good morning!!! Yesterday was one of a kind, at some point I gave up any hope of doing any more posts. First off, thanks to you guys for the mails, calls and text messages. At some point my mum literally began to panic; who are all these people calling you and how did they get your number? LOL.
I attended a party close in Surulere which was rather very interesting (but I was charged not to share any details on my blog, so I shall respectfully shut up) and the minute I got back to the island I had to go and change and meet someone up for drinks. Dang I just love hanging with Niger Delta peeps, y'all are comedians by default.
I remember when I fell in love (or something a lot like love) with that warri boy just by virtue of the fact that being with him was like having my own personal Bovi, I-go-dye and Katt Williams all rolled in one. The negro made me laugh till I laughed my pants off (TMI *covers face* #dontunderstimatethepoweroflaughter...).
Anyhoo, my companion last night is an Isoko man and just as hilarious. There's something powerful about a man that can make a woman laugh, it doesn't matter how he looks or how much is in his pocket, he makes your heart light and your heart in turn warms and opens up to him. (Ok, I'm speaking generally, the Isoko man is only a friend right now...).
And speaking of laughter guess who else made my night? The minute I heard about Chioma Umeruah's TEDx video on Instagram I couldn't wait to lay my hands on it. To begin with, it's one of my favourite things to do, watch TEDx videos on YouTube (I learn more from TEDx videos than I have from any other source), and then I heard that our very own Chigul talked at TEDx, I was literally blown away! This is huge y'all!
When I think of Chigul I ask; isn't it amazing the things with which God blesses us? There are certain gifts or certain little things that lay within someone which one might often disregard because 'of what use could it possibly be?' 'And how can it ever make me any money?'... But did Chigul ever know that fooling around in her room out of boredom or just plain silliness would elevate her to fame and celebrity and fatten up her bank account? I guess not.
Watch the video below and I'm certain you'll be Veeeeeeeeeery glad you did.
