Owerri Girls!

I didn't intend to start my year on the country-trotting p but it's just day 5 of 2016 and I've already done been in Lagos, Abuja, PH and Owerri. 

The first three cities are places I'm very familiar with. They're also the most popular cities in Nigeria, in that order. As such you would think that's where everything happens, if you're on the look out for fine babes you'd think those are the places you're most likely to find a concentration of them. You may be right but don't be too sure. 

You know, for years I've been hearing Owerri girls this, Owerri girls that and I thought it was a load of crap. I'd be like have they seen Enugu girls, they should let me hear word jor! 

Oh how wrong I was. 

I got into Owerri and checked into Immaculate. When I checked them out online I wasn't very impressed, especially as the name sounded very igboish or like an all girls' catholic school. When I got there however I was pleasantly surprised. By South-East standards we could give it 5stars, even though it's actually a 3.5star hotel, 4stars at best. It's still really new so it had that new feel to it. I could see that they tried to fashion the interior by international standards, they tried but unfortunately they missed the mark. The room was quite nice but I hated that when I looked out of my window my eyes clashed with the view of a mechanic workshop (or something that looked like one), that really stole from the ambience and essence. 

There was also a lunch buffet of igbo food and I wasn't going to do the buffet but when I saw that it included ugba, nkwobi, Isi ewu, ofe Owerri, native jollof rice and more, I was sold! 

Over the years, I've heard about the night life in Owerri and I'd thought it was greatly exaggerated. Boy, was I wrong! 

I started out at 40-40 night club and I must say I was almost impressed. Almost, remember I'm a Lagosian *tongue out*. When I stepped in I felt like I just walked into Spring Fellows, Enugu in the year 2003. Let's just say the dress sense of some people could be described as backwards, at best. Seriously, I felt like I was in a time capsule, transported back to 2003...

Still, it was turnt! The DJ was fantastic and the people knew how to party. The only downside was that the clubs were all thinned out before 3am. In Lagos it's easy to find people turning up till 6am and in my days of youthful exuberance I'd step out of the club a few times, surprised to see the sun! lol & smh. 

I sampled a few other places and the next night I went to Mbari ogwa. That's topic for another day but if you're ever in Owerri you must go there! I can still taste the spicey guinea fowl in my mouth. 

Owerri was lit! (Funny you only hear things like "Dubai was lit", but Owerri was too). There's one thing I'm still not able to get over though, nna Owerri has got fine girls! Actually it's got tooooooo many girls. Everywhere I went I was bombarded by beautiful faces with natural yellow skin that would make Lagos girls jealous, and very nice bodies too. I must confess I was beginning to get self conscious and a few times I even caught myself feeling inadequate, and I never ever feel that way!

Owerri I hail oh! Ladies, if your man tells you his going to Owerri for the weekend, either drug his food so he instantly falls into a drug induced sleep and wakes up on Monday morning, or insist on going with him! I finally understand what all the hype is about, the girls in that town though! I'm a heterosexual female yet my head was spinning. Hot damn!


What's been the most interesting place you've been to in Nigeria? I think for now Owerri takes the cake.


  1. Thelma and her descriptions! Lol. Have heard about owerri girls too,but i have to see for myself. I'm not ever ever ever going to trust Thelma's judgement again,MBA. Happy new year Tee.

  2. yes too many fine girls in owerri. This could be attributed to the number of higher institutions there. I feel Owerri should have the highest hotels in Nigeria because there is no street without a hotel. Thelma you missed one thing out about night life in Owerri. Did you not see the number of whores who hang around hotels. You will be shocked to know most of them are in their teens. Owerri wu oke mba.

  3. See me oohing and ahhing at u...I need to go on holidays too...Lagos takes the cake for me...TNHW

  4. Happy New Year fam!! I missed here like kilode!

    Thelma camdan biko, which Owerri girls? Those ones you saw are visitors from Enugu, Aba and PH. Owerri babes are *just there*. 20% of my reasons for coming to Enugu are these exceptional daughters of Eve. I's crazy down here! (I'm currently still at Coal City). You should see my cousins naa, sometimes I feel GOD plays some unkind tricks on me. How can one person have over 15 perfectly bodied first cousins, ALL FROM ENUGU?? *weeping*. Lol. There's one cousin I met and after we discovered we were 4th or 5th cousins, she (or I?) started having ideas. Haha. Nna, I hate chemistry sometimes.

    1. Haha bros Better do and come back before you will swallow bone that will hook in your gullet.

    2. Memphis the great is in Enugu! I'm here too sir. Care to meet?

  5. Owerri also has the highest number of runz babes. Keep your husbands away from there.

  6. Yaaaaaay! I swear ever since I graduated and left owerri, I miss the place every single day!
    Our lecturers used to punish us with hot tests then, they told us their friends from Abj used to turn up every weekend and would always gist them how hot the girls were. Lol...
    Party no be small, and not just on d weekends.
    Thelma leave me o.

  7. Lmao @ Funny you only hear things like "Dubai was lit", but Owerri was too.

    Hmmm... I'm hearing about the girls for the first time o. I always decline invites to owerri, I think I should start honoring them. Thanks for the info T.

  8. Reading this piece is so hilarious... Lol.. Ada owerri ukwu nwa owerri..

  9. All that was noted are the whole truth; nothing but the truth. But how the night-crawlers (most of who are in their teens) eluded the ever observant eyes of T is surprising. Maybe the Mbari Ogwa spicey guineafowl was at work. #Justsaying

  10. As an owerri girl welcome oh, did you reach ndaa Letti?

  11. Owerri babes are the bomb,each time we travel,I tend to sneak out with neighbours and go wakaing and I can really relate to all Thelma saw.

  12. Been to Owerri, but its been a while. I agree with everything. I want to visit the town again.


  13. I'm tempted...
    To do what self?
    What can I even do?

    Anyways, Benin babes still hold the record. #inofitshout
    Why I'm never so impressed with wat I see here!

    Quick one; why do most Yoruba girls have a sort of shoot-out a** from such a small body. I mean, why? It riddles me still.

  14. PH is the only place I've ever been to in the east. I would love to see more. I envy that about you - your travels.


    1. I'm not sure PH is in the east though

    2. lol... so where would you suggest it might be?

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?

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…

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!
