And we are rushing to make it in time for the match at a friend's place, his house is already full..no one wants to miss EL CLASSICO. I settle down with my laptop hoping my team wins(won't tell you the team now tho).
 7 minutes into the game already..one team looks ready and the other doesn't have an idea this is a match yet..lol. The first 2 goals of the match announces the team that came el classico ready.
First goal came in at the 10th minute by xavi and the second one follows almost immediately at the 18th minute by pedro.. YES!! players of the one and only BARCELONA. At this point, they are in total control of this match. I mean their passes are sooo smooth, connection is never lost as the ball moves from one barca player to another and when the time is right-->the ball goes into the right net. For some reason mourinho's boyz are losing the ball( i mean that's some jonzing movements), their passes are moving swiftly from their legs to the legs of barca players and then madrid supporters hold their breath hoping it doesnt end in the net!!!!
oh well, madrid players are obviously trying to score, i mean they have to try but at the moment its going over the net...OOPS!!  RONALDOOO....my bf is really trying but he's just gotta try harder.
31 minutes into the game and we see pique and ronaldo fighting(boyz aint smiling).The reason: Barca's coach held the ball when it went out and he held it for too long so ronaldo gave the guy a push like "drop the ball jor". Pique finds out ronaldo touched his coach, a fight sets in and the refree settles it by giving ronaldo a yellow card!!!
An argument sets in the house i'm in too "the coach should not hold the ball"..."ronaldo was wrong jor"..lool... boys and ball!! anyways ronaldo gets a yellow card, and then another yellow card for a barca player and yet another one for pepe from madrid...n i'm like "refree your yellow card neva finish".
the second yellow card led to a free kick but ronaldo missed it , slightly missed it (so painful).

               ball possession: barca 62 38 madrid..........................goals: barca 2-0 madrid
end of first half

beginning of 2nd half mesut leaves for lass to enter. will this move save madrid???
hell no!! two minutes into the second half, we see another goal but its not counted , still i don't think madrid should not be allowing a third goal oo.
Yellow card for alonso, this yellow card just keeps coming...EL CLASSICO ....players are just bringing players down....lol
highlights for barca go plenty..Another wonderful goal in motion but ooo did not make it, the madrid player set his leg out first and the ball went out...barca still has this match on lock down and madrid is still jonzing!!!

another goal oooo...go barca!!!!! 55minutes and
                         OH MY!!! another one in 58minutes(this people should allow me to bloag about one goal finish now)...BARCA HAVE MERCY...I mean the trick here is just to paralyze messi, the guy has tactics mehnnn and barca players are just amazing...no shots just incredible passes.
so madrid makes a change--> marcelo out abeloa in...madrid needs a miracle right about now not abeloa. anybody with the name miracle in madrid's team?
another yellow card for caryhalo of real madrid and then ramos follows with another yellow card around 78minutes...apparently, madrid is good at getting yellow cards ..yay!! madrid....lol
kedira gains a yellow card..this must be as a result of fustration o "madrid why all the cards???"

MOURINHO AINT SMILING!!!! he looks cute like that tho..hehe
yellow card for puyol, this time a barca player (hehe..thank God)....
pedro out jeffren in, first change from barca 
88minutes, the game is almost over, jose aint smiling(sitting down with his chin resting on his hands)
90 minutes and jeff puts in another goal ....OH MY GOD!!!!

messi is with the ball and two madrid players attack him, messi is down, the refree is running with a red card and a fight sets in oooo .....madrid players are vexing....loool eyaa i can understand their fustration.
ramos gets a second yellow card and the match comes to an end.

 the match is over!!!!!!!!!!!!! 5-0 ...GO BARCA!!!!!!! jose is jonzing!!!!

  • Xavi 10
  • Pedro 18’
  • Villa 55’, 58’
  • Jeffrén 90
Barcelona thrash Real Madrid in El Clasico

EL CLASSICO... the most anticipated match and fans watch jose and his team go down, seriously beaten by BARCELONA.....
             madrid brought nothing to this match sadly and barca just had the madrid players running around.
el classico...definitely not a match between two giants in my opinion :D

           These two videos were recently released and I don't know how many of you have seen them but the question now is "which video or song left a mark for you?"

     Lets start with our darling 9ICE-ENERGY After gonogo aso and street credibility , I do not think any of his other songs have done it for me, ofcourse,he has his own style and fans but to me this video right here is just VERY DISAPPOINTING.
       AHN AHN!! (I TIRE FOR THE VIDEO)...as in seriously boredom wanted to finish me.
                                             watch it first before I continue

what do you think??
I mean two "sexy " girls in a NON-MECHANIC OUTFIT in a supposed mechanic workshop(or whatever its called) filled with flashy cars?? for 3mins??? AHN AHN!!
You know I was actually getting tired of the regular club-like videos but please this one is just horrible, I would have preferred a club-like video ANYTIME TO THIS. Even the babe holding spanner (abi what was she holdin) was bored doing the same thing over and over and over again. 
MY VERDICT: a clean (over photoshoped..lol) video with no idea, no message or hint to what the song means and contrary to the title ..IT LACKS ENERGY!!!

Nigga Raw definitely has his own style of music. To me, its a combination of old school, hiphop and ofcourse igbo roots. I have not hated any of his songs that I've heard and I do not think I'VE GOT ANY HATRED FOR THIS ONE  EITHER.
          I mean the director, bobby hai, did a brilliant job. It was funny, cool, clean(without looking like they over polished it) and I enjoyed it.
          Anyways, see the video for your self.

what do you think??? This is really good. all I can say is "anything I be today, O CHUKWU"
See daddy showkey feeling cool with himself (carry go jare..lol)
      The point of the song is not lost, even if I do not understand Igbo, the video gives me a hint and makes me love the song.
  I laughed when he said "I be blues 4 life, I dey support Enyimba" (no be lie!! lol)
MY VERDICT:  I enjoyed the video and the song. Good job Bobby Hai AND Dat Nigga raw.

Anyways, this is my own opinion
what do you think?
which song/video made more sense to you??

On October 29, a car with aides of the Lagos State House of Assembly Speaker, Mr. Adeyemi Ikuforiji hit the car of nigerian actress Ufuoma Ejenabor. A very simple sentence o but the story didn't end there.

This is how Ufuoma's story begins,“I think it was about 3pm and I was listening to Banky W on the car stereo. Suddenly, I noticed that a black Toyota Hilux truck, which has ESCORT as its registration number squeezed its way on my right side. Suddenly my Jeep was hit violently, damaging the right fender. To my utter shock, the driver did not stop."

Anyways she said she was beaten by the policemen that hit her and some of her things were taken from her/stolen.
Click for Full Image Size

On the other hand, the police officers claim that they did not touch her or assault her in anyway.
One of the drivers said "Even if it is true that we hit her car, which cannot be proven from the video recording, when there is an accident on the road, the first thing you do is not to call a lawyer. So, it was obvious she was onto something right from the beginning and that was why the Speaker directed that everything be recorded,"
               It is just a shame that the issue of the police officers assaulting her would come up. Whether its true or not, the fact is the naija police force is just a shame.

                            please let me allow you watch the video

That commissioner really wanted her to calm down but sadly no one trusts them anymore to even listen to them :( by the way,Its not easy o...Too much drama displayed by the actress, serious operation FIRE FOR FIRE..lol
The current situation is that both parties are now suing eachother...na wa o! In my opinion MR Lagos State House of Assembly Speaker, it just shouldn't have got to that o.

The part of the story i find amusing is all the things that the actress claims are now missing:
white gold necklace (N850,000),
 Silver Gucci wristwatch (N475,000), 
Pink Ipod (N55,000),
 Blackberry Bold (N150,000)
 Channel Sunglasses ($1,215). 
She also claimed that her wedding band, worth £3,000 was broken
She also said,"My Apple Macbook Laptop fell during the ransacking of my car and the screen and the disc compartment were destroyed. My Louis Vuitton bag was also damaged, while my wedding band was broken.."

OMG!! AHN AHN AUNTY!!! lol...all these things in your car?? its not easy at all.Well, If they really assaulted you, then make sure they pay for all the unknown and known damages.
much luv,

second is sexy diva -TINA TURNER...gosh!!! i loved this song a lot.

Another sexy diva--> WHITNEY HOUSTON...still alive but not sure how great her voice is now after all she went through.
Anyways, this was and still is a great song. Fun video too

and ofcourse, how can I leave out one of the greatest artist of all times...MICHAEL JACKSON...i loved this song. He definitely was an amazing musician RIP michael

 OH MY!! that girl didn't just want to let go (can't blame her tho :D)

       I Can't get all the great videos in one post but I'm sure these ones bring back great memories 
                          It was fun taking you all back in time via my invisible time machine
                                               have a FabaMAZING weekend!!

LOUD MOUTH: Wake up Nigerians, there is still fire on the mountain!!

 With the elections around the corner, so many things going on in Nigeria. The cry for change is getting louder, so many promises are being made.... AND I'VE GOT THINGS ON MY MIND I NEED TO POUR OUT. 

        Many times we talk about the unimaginable amounts of money leaders have stolen and got away with, the ones that have been caught with ridiculous possessions and those that you wonder if they actually passed the criteria of leading any group of people not to talk of a whole country. 

       yes o!! we have bad leaders but they are not exactly our major problem.

          NIGERIAN ELECTIONS to me is a very smallish fellow that seem to make a big joke out of all nigerians time after time. I mean when elections are coming up you find people speaking their minds and cooking up rallies. Nigerians already know what they want in a leader(the description has always been there since i was born) but when the results are announced
its like the bloody fellow just tells us "haha, I told you o ..i have fooled you again". Nothing has worked over the years and its frightening. 
and once again, I'm soooo not talking about that fellow                             
 now where was I?
what is the problem in Nigeria or maybe, WHO is the problem??
   Sometimes, I wish for a natural disaster(and wait before you chop me raw) , one that will just come and ONLY wipe out the evil people in the country but then i wonder how many of us in that country will BE LEFT?
         YOU SEE the PROBLEM as i keep telling people is with the NIGERIAN MEN & WOMEN.
I mean unless YOU want to tell me the leaders we complain about are not Nigerians or that its been the same set of people in power for a long time because I am pretty sure that over time new faces have joined the government train but what difference has it made.
 we keep focusing on just the leaders.......corrupt leaders , corrupt government....                           WAKE UP!!!

  • those lecturers who wont pass a student because he or she won't heed to his demand is not part of the "corrupt government".
  • employers that give jobs based on connection or the "if you scratch my back , ill scratch yours" basis are also not part of "the corrupt government".
  • the student who prefers to join a cult and disturbs the peace of other students who are struggling to be in school is not part of "the corrupt government".
  • even those market women/sales girls who are not just welcoming to customers(which i find pretty annoyingly annoying) are not part of "the corrupt government".
  • I remember a friend of mine who used to give extra lessons for waec and jamb telling me "i have taught the children from rich families and their children do excellently well but they wont offer me a job in their companies because ofcourse who will teach their children" these kind of people are not part of "the corrupt governement"
and the list goes on....all of these people are obviously not in the government but in one way or the other not doing things RIGHT.

AHA!! I'm sure most of us saw the result of one statistics that place Nigerians as the happiest people in the world. I believe them O! because one thing i know--> WE LOVE ENJOYMENT but maybe that is where the problem lies. You see, we want too much of everything and you and I know what that can lead to.
Greed and Selfishness-->> a man wants more for himself, more for his family, more for his generations yet unborn. haba!!
 Its like a fight for happiness in Nigeria. I must be happier than the other person and if I'm not(WAHALA DEY!!) I must pretend that I am... (NAWA!!)
                                   the problem fellow readers is with the PEOPLE.
   When talking about the country Nigeria most people talk about how the youth must fight against the ills in the country, talk about many men/women that fought for what they believed in for their country(most people make reference to martin luther king jnr) and many make comparisons to developed countries.
   Lets talk about all those great men that fought for their country,(I LAUGH IN MY LANGUAGE).My dad once told me when he came back from a trip he made to some countries. He had been to the grave of one man that had fought for the country and he said " the respect alone they gave to this man even in his death is amazing, soldiers are by his grave 24/7, tourist come around and take pictures" and he said "now i understand why they gladly fight for their country or for the people in their country and are prepared to die for it too. They know they will never be forgotten". Even in T.R.N.C where I study and Turkey , no one dares to say anything evil about their hero- Kemal Atarturk.. you see his pictures everywhere you go.In fact the way I know about him now is as if he fought for me too.YES!! what I am trying to say people is what have we done to respect those that fought for NIGERIA way back???
                        name a street after them and put them on our naira notes.
                                                          is that enough???
The last time I heard about the good deeds President Nnamdi Azikiwe had done was in my social studies class. 
So much for keeping our culture!!our heritage!! so much for respecting those that should be respected. This says a lot about how much we are losing ourselves, if we do not keep in mind how and where the journey to build our great country started or the people that laid the foundations, then we are not heading to any great destination.

OH!! and about the constant reference and comparison to developed countries. I have something to say.
When i look at a developed country, all i see from my own view is their OPEN ARMS TO TALENT. There is a place for everyone to develop their talent. No one is going to see a person with great talent and shut their eyes because he or she doesn't know "THE" HE OR SHE that needs to be known(i mean CONNECTION).

  • For instance, if you are good at any sports, you could get into a university on scholarship!!
  •  movie directors/producers are constantly searching for new faces
  • companies investing in brilliant ideas by talented people(e.g facebook)
         and other uncountable opportunities to help their youth work on their talent.
People that are talented in sports, music, dance, acting and even the bookworms/geeks are all constantly being developed and in return get to give back to their country.
Even schools now have courses such as fashion designing and the likes, so one gets a degree for their unique gift. A developed country has its citizens creating things in the country, buying products made in the country and even making other countries who have not SEEN THE LIGHT buy from them too.
                                      Nigeria!!! are you part of those still in the dark?? 
     OH YES!! I must acknowledge the fact that a lot of talented youth are working on themselves and coming up with good products in nigeria but still everything doesn't seem right YET. the idea of  "YOU MUST HAVE CONNECTION" still exists and a lot of fake people everywhere.
 I tried to prepare myself for modelling in naija this summer but it didn't feel right. A lot of fakes, unprofessional ones, frightening stories of fake agencies and the agencies i actually found professional and worthy were accusing themselves stylishly of being fake... OMG!! can't there be one industry functioning properly?? 
In my opinion, the good ones should find a way of creating a clear distinction between themselves and the illegal ones. (SHIKENA!!!)
 I know I am all about talent and I'm not strictly talking about music and fashion inclined talents. If we put effort into developing our talents in Nigeria, we will come up with our own products.WE CAN DO IT.. think about it! we will not have to import every single thing and i'm guessing there wont be so much people caught in the confusion of having to engage themselves in illegal business.
I know the government should have something to do with creating these opportunities but then the Nigerian people must be able to accept NIGERIAN-MADE products,the ones producing should produce QUALITY PRODUCTS worth buying, sell them at affordable  reasonable prices and already established companies should start investing in those brilliant ideas that don't have enough resources.

      Most Nigerians refuse to do things the RIGHT way but want RIGHT things to come to the country..that can't be RIGHT!!!...right?

LOUD MOUTH HAS SPOKEN!!! if you don't agree TALK YOUR OWN :D
