June And Me...

What's with June and me?


It all started in May... May 26. Knowing full well that the month of May ends today, I just concluded in my "mind of minds" that Tuesday, May 30th was the end of the month and June Begins on Wednesday (today) - Which happens to be May 31st.


Maybe it's time we scrap May 31st or there's something about June and me.


Okay, OK!


Why am I so eager to get into the month of June... and get over with it. - Let's just say I'm gon' start anchoring my radio show without a co-host starting this June and I feel some kinda way - It's just going to be Me, Myself & I and the listeners.


Or is it because we're getting a proper office space - Mehn! My Boss and I went to check the place out yesterday and it's Aaammmaaaiiizzziiinnng! ... It's a Wawu!. I love it and I just can't wait to start working from there. Which brings me to another problem - Apartment Hunt! - I need to move closer to the office 'cos I hate commutin…

Danfo Chronicle – episode 1. – “Ojota to Omole – N300,000”

Danfo Chronicles –

Wait, you don’t know what danfo is?

Ok, Danfo is a yellow minibus with two black stripes that emerged in the 70s and has since then been the means of commercial transportation plying virtually every route within Lagos State. How the word “Danfo” did came about? I don’t know. But some say it means “Hurry” in Yoruba.

So, commuters who travel from their homes to their offices - or wherever their destination may be, sometimes engage in one conversation or the other with one another (total strangers). They talk politics, sports, social amenities, Music… (Yea! In that order). On rare occasions will you hear commuters talk fashion and movies.

I’ve decided to share conversations (relevant conversations) discussed in Danfos here on my blog and to get your 2cents about whatever topic discussed.

Let’s call this; Danfo Chronicle – episode 1. – “Ojota to Omole – N300,000”

The other day, on my way from Ojota to Omole, I joined this Danfo at the Ojota garage and while waiting fo…

#ThrowBackThursday - The Spot I Loved.

Watching Tv growing up was a luxury for me. Not because we never had one but because my gran'ma would rather listen to her transistor radio (Radio Lagos 107.5). So every opportunity I had to watch the Tv was Christmas.


So, every time I had to leave my gran'ma' for my parent's house I knew it was all going to be Tv, Tv, Tv, Tv...

Err, I loved the cartoons and all of the kiddies stuff on Tv back then but for some reasons, I couldn't explain why I was attracted to certain shows on tv. Shows like;
New Dawn with Funmi Iyanda
Live with Levi Ajuonuma (Though it was all serious stuff but something got me glued to it.)
Every Woman with Adesuwa Onyenukwe (Gosh! I love that pot like seat)
... and I loved AM Express on NTA with Sadiq Daba, Late Yinka Craig and Mariam Anozodo (My first Tv Crush).

Oh Yes!, there was something about Newsline on the NTA Network Service on Sunday Evenings (The only day of the week I enjoy watching the news with my Dad.)

In later years, I fell in l…

My Easter Holiday

Just when every soul is filled with Holiday spirit, mine is filled with work spirit. - When I work the most is when you are on holiday and when I'm on holiday or when I work less is when you work the most.


Well, if you work in the entertainment industry, you'll dig.


So how did my Easter turn out?


     - Good Friday kicked off with Media rounds with and Aramide and the evening was all about #OneNightOnly With Runtown. Ol'boy, the show was massive. if you missed it, oh well, I don't get why you did. Going forward, Good Friday and early Saturday morning (3:00 AM) when the show ended, was work, work, work for me. So let's say I had a lazy Saturday - I slept and woke twice :D. - At 4:00 PM, I went on to do my radio thing and headed home after being ticked off by a colleague.



        That's me on my phone as always.



     - Sunday, where else do you spend your easter holiday than with your family. So I spent my Easter Sunday with my Uncle and Aunt. - Loads of chocola…

#MyKitchenAndI - Refrigerating Liquids

I last refilled my 10 liters cooking gas cylinder in December 2016. Err... before Christmas I guess. So today, April 15, 2017, I tried lighting the stove, only for me to realize that I was out of cooking gas. - Anyhoo the gas guy came to my rescue.


I love my kitchen so much that I keep tabs on everything that goes on in my kitchen - Well till I get married - but till then, "MY Kitchen Is My Kitchen."


So today, I learned something new from a friend about storing liquids in your refrigerator. - What did I learn?

 - Freeze Liquids In Useable Potions!


Most people love to cook at weekends so, during the weekdays, they just take from what they had frozen. So the trick is when freezing for the week, freeze in useable portions.


When you make your soup, stew and all of the liquid stuff, turn them into flat squared or rectangular plates with lids. that way, you don't have to defrost all of the soup.


So for each day of the week, you finish every plate of soup you defrost. Also, Mak…

Lagos Cinema Palava...

Going to the cinema in Lagos, in the evening and during holidays is a "no-no".

Why? - The most happen at the cinema.

If you're not sitting next to a talkative, you're sitting in front of that one who has seen the movie and has come again to be a spoiler, or you're sitting behind the one who's in the cinema hall to take selfies and fiddle with his/her phone during the screening of the movie - thereby disturbing you with the phone light.

Those who come late to the hall when the movie had begun, knowing so well that the hall is full and there's definitely no vacant back seat, will climb the stairs hoping to find a vacant seat, with their flashlight in your face ( and NO sorry will be said) then, they'll obstruct your view for about five, ten seconds or more as they decide whether or not to sit in front.

In the end, guess what? - they'll go down the stairs to seat in front. - As I do the worst to them in my mind (Slap, Kick, Punch, Break their legs..…
