So About That Tuface's Protest...




Tuface's planned peaceful protest slated for 6th February (next Monday) seems to be the topic on everyone's tongues and finger tips. 

I do not know of a single person who can say they're happy with the way things are in the country today, yet, some persons have found a reason to undermine the planned protest. 

First off, Tuface has made it clear that the protest was not his idea. He got the memo just like others did, thought it was a valid and necessary cause and then lent his voice to it. 

So I fail to understand why MI is calling him out on it saying its a bad idea. Blackface says its for selfish interests and politically motivated. I think Blackface should get over this love gone wrong and stop acting like a scorned ex girlfriend already. It's so 1990s 😒. 

It's somewhat disconcerting that the people who have our President's ears are the likes of Femi Adesina who dares say that the Nigerians who want to protest are people who are still pained about the 2015 elections. Helloooo sir, most of today's "wailers" voted Buhari into power! And the likes of Onochie above. I guess every Nigerian should come on TV and each talk about their "beef" with President Buhari. 

"Beef"

What are curious and unprofessional word to use. As though it's personal. 


Oh, and now Fayose is lending his voice to this protest and I'm really not sure that's a good thing. Besides, is he not aware that he is part of the protest people are protesting? Is he under a misguided notion that the protest is political or partisan? 

At least that's not the way this reads. 



So you see, this just seems to not be going quite as planned but I hope that whatever is best for us as a people is what eventually happens. 

Right now I'm sure Tubaba is just sitting somewhere with his head in his hands asking Who send me message?


Do you think this protest should hold?

  1. Firstly, Tuface is my best artist. Local and international. Just wanna put that out..

    Secondly. Because 2baba has added his voice to the protest Im in full support of it.

    Thirdly. Ofcourse the protest is necessary. Nigerians are not happy and we need to show it as one. All the lamentations on social media aint working, we gotta occupy the streets and let this shit be on CNN and BBC that we aint smiling.

    Fourth. Fuck all the people attacking his personal life and mistakes because of this protest. He has a voice, he has the peoples love and so he is an instrument that can be used to support the movement. Fela spoke against the govt. Bob Marley did it. Why the hell cant Tuface?

    My only problem is why the heellllll is it happening on a Monday??? Ill be at work. I want to be on the street singing in solitary as Nigerians express their dissatisfaction. But a nigga has to go to work. I swear I want to apply for 1 day leave just to be at the protest.

    Peace.

    1. Monday tho.... I'm gonna be free on Monday sha. I'll be working on Sunday night so I'll have Monday free. Abeg where is the venue? I hope I'll find strength to make it there! We are tired of Buhari, his one sided corruption war, his shitty economic policies and generally, the hardship his govt has brought to Nigeria.

    2. Top to bottom, I am in line with every word written by you, Kon.

  2. I knew the protest wouldn't achieve the desired aim because it seems to be against everyone and everything connected to the political class - protesting against President, NASS, Judiciary, CBN, etc...at the same time? Kent werk that way. If it had just a single target like say Presidency, that would've made a whole lot of sense. It's still a great idea though, no one is smiling.

    What I don't understand is how this protest all of a sudden concerns Tuface's integrity? He's being called all sorts of degrading names and his past is questioned. For what? I'm truly amazed. I mean BBOG, CATBAN, NLC and a few other known civil society groups with well known faces have protested against the government in recent times but how come Tuface comes out and it's now a problem? Is there something going on I'm not aware of?

    1. Tuface is a "big fish", the planned protest gathered steam as soon as he took it up. The basic principle here is to "strike the head and scatter the follower".

  4. Lol,same folks who said baba shldnt debate now want Tuface "debating" on TV about these problems (and solutions)? #Clowns

    Anyone attacking Tuface is definitely(and actually) being paid by this govt to do so. Like duh! (and anyone defending this govt without being paid for it is the biggest joke (read #Clown)

    Really donno why Fayose is joining in the Protest. He's a part of the govt we are protesting against.

    $1 = N500? No one saw that coming, swear down!

    Em,epp me with the meeting point for Lagos peeps. Is it Ojota or Victoria Island? Tnx..


    NB: if I were President Buhari for 24hrs,I wld resign after 5mins. Gonna take divine intervention to undo the mess this admin has successfully created within just 20months

  5. Indeed 2baba is a "big fish"......all this just because he decided to lend his voice to a worthy course, as if Nigerians have not been having protests.

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…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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?

the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.

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.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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…

Shhhhhhh....

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?
