#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 love with talk shows and in my head, I produced my own talk show (LOL).

About four years ago, a talk show called The Spot on Ebonylife Tv came to being. It had everything I wanted, everything I had always imagined a talk show should be like. It was as if 'Lamide Akintobi and Zainab Balogun knew what I wanted on a talk show. - From the settings to the scripting and all that they did on The Spot.

So in July 2013, The Spot began to air on EbonyLife Tv with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, 'Lamide Akintobi and Zainab Balogun as co-hosts. and they talked about everything that needed to be talked about - Music, Fashion, Culture, Life, People, Food, Politics, Travel, Business, Film, Sports, Games... - Everything and more. Until March 2017 when they broke my heart.

The Spot aired its last episode on the 31st of March 2017 which really broke my heart. Some Spotters thought it was all a prank to fool them being that April Fool's Day was the day after.

On The Spot's journey so far, they've had loads of guests on the show; Tosyn Bucknor, Arese Ugwu, Ekeng Bassey, Adekunle Gold M.I Abaga, Makida Moka, Kemi Smallz, Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi, Frank Donga, Lala Akindoju, Chef Niyi Williams,  Mr. Eazi, Keturah Kings, Tunji Andrews, Bukky Karibi-Whyte, Ronke Odusanya, GGB Dance Crew, Cobhams Asuquo, Kaylah Oniwo, Timi Dakolo... And guests co-hosts like; Tolu Oniru-Demuren (Toolz), Timini Egbuson and Mawuli Gavor.

So what am I going to miss about The Spot? Everything! - The co-hosts, the segments, the comfy settings that make me feel relaxed watching it, the music, the interesting topics, & views and the guests. Basically everything about The Spot.

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…
