Oh my!! The year 2012 is almost here and the excitement is in the air plus ofcourse the i-need-to-do-more-next-year feeling. I have not started writing my new year resolutions and what I hope to achieve in 2012. Its scary for me because I know that the things I'll write are things I should do next year but then what-if I'm not able to do them at all *covering my face* but my guess is I'm not the only one afraid of that "what-if" right??

I am super duper grateful to God for everything this year 2011.  I did more than I expected or imagined in so many aspects in my life and achieved a lot, one of which was graduating with a first class in information technology (yelz!! #blowingmytrumpet)

I met so many wonderful people who touched my life in different ways . God bless you all.
singing at the lifehouse #openmicnite
The most important thing is I learnt more about me this year. Well, I guess we do learn about ourselves every time but this year I learnt a great deal about my strengths and my weaknesses, who I really am and what I am capable of doing. Oh! how can i forget the mistakes I made, some of which still try to hunt me now but of course one has to learn from them and just MOVE ON(easier said than done but one has to work on it :D) hopefully never to make them again. 

So grateful to my family and awesome friends who just love me for ME .
Thank you  dangel eyez readers for always stopping by even if at some point I became a terrible blogger LOL (no vex!! twas too much work). I promise to be better in 2012.
Sometime this year I was on bellanaija.com's star home page :D 
My heart goes out to the families of those that died in any of the terrible incidents that took place in our dear country this year and to anyone that lost someone dear this year. May God give you the fortitude to bear your loss, may you find peace and comfort and may the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace. AMEN.

                       So how was 2011 for you? are you done writing your new year resoultions? or do you even believe in writing new year resolutions??
feel free to share

See you all in 2012,
Remember that your life is a message to others, make it inspiring :)

Blast hits Nigeria church during Christmas service [UPDATE]

At least 10 people have been killed and many more injured in a bomb blast at a Catholic church near the Nigerian capital Abuja, officials say.
The blast tore through St Theresa's Church in Madalla as worshippers gathered for Christmas services.
A second explosion is reported to have hit a church in the central city of Jos soon after.
National Emergency Management Agency (Nema) spokesman Yushau Shuaibu told the BBC that the Abuja explosion had happened in the street outside the church.The blast struck St. Theresa Church in Madalla, a town in Niger state close to the capital, Abuja, authorities said. The explosion destroyed at least eight cars parked near the church on a main highway running through the region, said Yushau Shuaib, a spokesman for Nigeria's National Emergency Management Agency.
Earlier he told Reuters news agency: "We are presently evacuating the dead and the injured, but unfortunately we don't have enough ambulances.Most of our ambulances have gone to operate on the major highways of the country."
"We were in the church with my family when we heard the explosion. I just ran out. Now I don't even know where my children or my wife are,'' said Timothy Onyekwere. "I don't know how many were killed but there were many dead.''
Rose Adoga, who lives nearby told Reuters by telephone there was a huge explosion from the direction of the church. She added that "the blast destroyed the windows of my home."
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast, but the explosion comes amid a wave of attacks in Nigeria by a radical Muslim sect known as Boko Haram. The sect is responsible for at least 465 killings this year alone, according to an Associated Press count. 

 This is very sad and the fact that there are not enough ambulances is just really annoying.kmt!!
 God please save us and just the way you showed yourself to Saul, please show yourself to these heartless people.
    May the souls of those departed rest in peace and I pray for quick recovery for those injured. AMEN.

#fuelsubsidy 11-11-11 Nigerian youths go on hunger strike to fight against fuel subsidy removal

  Its the 11th day of the 11th month in the year 2011.. 11-11-11. A lot of people have so many reasons why today is a significant day. I think its just an ordinary day tho BUT over here in Nigeria something peaceful but important is going on.
    Its the fight by Nigerian youths against the removal of fuel subsidy. For some reasons known to the government, they have planned to remove fuel subsidy in 2012 . This will take the fuel price wayyy up to about 150naira per litre and ofcourse you know that everything else will go wayyyy up too .
Header image
  Today, 11-11-11 some have come in from all over the country by road, others by air to join their fellow Nigerian Youth today at the UNITY Fountain beside Hilton Hotel Abuja, right in front of the Millenium Park. Its going to be a peaceful protest, a sit-down protest.. a HUNGER STRIKE. yup!! no eating till the government hears the Nigerian youths out.

"The support from young people across Nigeria and in the diaspora is enormous. Today is D-Day. Young people from all walks of life will gather at the Unity Fountain, Opposite Transcorp hilton, Abuja to observe a one-day sit-down hunger strike campaign against the planned Fuel subsidy removal policy by the current administration.
There has been a lot of emotions about the fuel subsidy issue, many people have different ideas on how the fuel subsidy removal should be tackled but majority of the young people in Nigeria believe that this is a policy that will threaten their livelihood and make life more difficult.
We have published a list of demand from Government. We do not plan to bring down the Government as many people have rumoured. Far from it, we believe in making our voice heard in a peaceful and dynamic way."

Do I think hunger strike is a brilliant idea ? 
I am not exactly sure it is but like I said to someone, if they are able to get a whole lot of coverage by the media both local and international . There'll most likely be some sort of negotiation.
   Also, this is better than doing absolutely nothing than just grumbling(shuffering and shmiling)...

If you are not in abuja, you can follow up on what is going on there via the twitter hashtag #fuelsubsidy.

" Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty Monday of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.
Murray served as Jackson's personal physician as he prepared for his comeback concerts, giving him the surgical anesthetic propofol to help him sleep nearly every night for the last two months of his life, according to testimony.
Jackson's death on June 25, 2009, was caused by "acute propofol intoxication" in combination with two sedatives, the Los Angeles County coroner ruled.
The seven men and five women on the jury heard 49 witnesses over 23 days, including Murray's girlfriends and patients, Jackson's former employees, investigators and medical experts for each side.
The prosecution, in closing arguments on Thursday, argued that Murray was responsible for Jackson's death because his reckless use of propofol to treat the pop icon's insomnia in his home was criminally negligent.

Investigators found that Murray ordered nearly 4 gallons of propofol in his treatment regimen for Jackson and administered the drug inside the singer's rented home, a practice that all the prosecution experts said was unheard of. Jurors also heard testimony about how Murray left Jackson's bedroom for a period after providing him with propofol and spent his time making calls and sending texts to a former girlfriend. When he realized Jackson was in distress, Murray gave the pop star CPR on a bed, a decision that also deviated from the suggested method requiring a hard surface under the patient.
Murray was additionally faulted for waiting more than 20 minutes to call 911, not keeping proper records and failing to tell the paramedics and ER doctors that he had given Jackson propofol.
Walgren painted Murray as a selfish doctor who agreed to take $150,000 a month to give Jackson nightly infusions of propofol in his home, something an ethical doctor would never do because of the dangers."

             This is who I am:
 I find something good that I love, I definitely have to share and trust me when I say you'll most definitely love whatever I share.
 EHEN!! last year, I had a problem with my hair. It was breaking seriously because of some factors(e.g weather) where I was studying and I had VEXED and decided to go natural which isn't a bad thing. The only problem was that I could not bring myself to cutting any part of my hair(you don't want to see me on low cut).
  When I came to Nigeria last year July for the summer holiday, my friend introduced me to a salon she felt could help my hair. At that time, I was ready to relax my hair and be good to it so I decided to try it out and oh boy! was i grateful.

NATURES GENTLE TOUCH is the name of the salon 
and I have been religiously going there for anything that has to do with my hair for more than a year now.
They do not fix weavon there or do ghana braids and its likes. They are just dedicated to taking care of the hair God has given us and I love them :D. 
Natures Gentle Touch Hair Institute

Plot 209, Muri Okunola Street

Victoria Island, Lagos.

Phone: +234-1-4627442

Email: info@naturesgentletouchinstitute.com

Relaxer- 1000naira
washing(which includes deep conditioning,steaming,straightening/setting,trimming if needed and proper styling)- 1000naira with their product and 1500 if you come without their product. They'll use their product for you, I am not sure they'll agree to use any other product.
relaxing(which includes everything washing includes) - 2000naira and i think student price is 1500naira
If you are going there for the first time, one of the hair specialist will have a look at you hair (forgotten the term for it) and then tell you which products of theirs to buy.
   They offer other services like dyeing and cutting hair to style but I have no idea how much those ones cost. 
In my opinion, these prices are pretty cool for the services and did i mention the hair stylist takes his/her time to make your hair fab.. NO?? okay, that's like their problem. They never want to hurry o and you know some of us want everything done SHARP SHARP .lol Anyways, my friends and I have learnt to plan well as trying to rush the hair stylist hardly ever works unless of course its some serious emergency.


yes, you do not pay anything extra to get your hair styled this way.
    This is me rocking my hair. I care more about a healthy looking hair than anything else and if i can achieve that then I'm so glad.

and that's it!!!
my free advert for my favorite hair salon :D
Natures Gentle touch is also the official hair salon for MTN lagos fashion and design week and I learnt they'll be at the exhibition at Eko hotel from wed-saturday from 10am-5pm.

       I read about this before and felt really bad but just found the video on youtube and thought I should share. I feel so bad that something as terrible as this happened. How is it possible that a toddler is hit by a bus, ignored by passers-by, later on hit by a truck  and then ignored by several passers-by. GOSH!! 

"Footage is taken from a surveillance camera presented on local TV shows Yue Yue was walking in a hardware market in Foshan, Guangdong province, on Thursday, about 100 meters away from her home, when she was run over by a van at 5:26 pm.

The girl was then run over by a light-duty truck. The riders of four electric bicycles, a tricycle and three passers-by all chose to ignore her and no one at a shop close to the scene came to her aid.

Seven minutes after she was first hit by the van, a 57-year-old rag collector noticed the girl and moved her to the curb. The woman then tried talking to the shopkeeper but received no response. When she ran from shop to shop for the identity of the girl, the rag collector was told by a number of shopkeepers to mind her own business.

She then walked into the street and a few seconds later, the girl's mother appears and rushes away with the girl.

The girl received emergency surgery in Foshan before being transferred to the General Hospital of the Guangzhou Military Command of the People's Liberation Army in Guangzhou on the same day.

The incident is the latest example of passers-by acting indifferently to victims injured in crimes. In this case, some blamed the parents for letting the girl walk on the street alone. More criticized the phenomenon of people passing by without helping, caused at least in part by previous extortion attempts from the injured and their families who have sometimes tried to blame the person helping.

-------------- 16 / 10 / 2011 News Update --------------

Chinese authorities have supposedly have caught the first driver (the second is no worse in my opinion). "If she is dead, I may pay only about 20,000 yuan ($3,125). But if she is injured, it may cost me hundreds of thousands yuan," said the driver over the phone to the media, before he gave himself up to the police.

The girl has been pronounced "brain dead" by doctors and remains on life support in intensive care.

"She couldn't breathe on her own," said Wen Qiang, deputy director of the ICU department.

The most optimistic estimate is that the girl will remain in a vegetative state on life support.

-------------- 17 / 10 / 2011 News Update --------------

Police have detained both drivers.

-------------- 17 / 10 / 2011 News Update --------------

Unconfirmed reports that the toddler died on 16 / 10 / 2011:
"...doctors said the girl died yesterday from severe brain injuries she had suffered in the accident." " 

-copied from the info attached to the youtube video

its indeed a wicked world and according to the statement made by the driver, he is sure hoping she dies so he can be asked to pay less.
may her soul rest in perfect peace.

     The clear version of the  Naija BET cypher is out now. I love rap to an extent , love the way good rappers play with words and then make u scream "wooo!!" lol. Anyways, those of you that haven't seen it, here it is - the male & female versions in one.
 KUDOS!! to IBKSpaceshipBoi (winner of don jazzy's enigma challenge)who made the beat.

  I respect all of them on the cypher, they all tried but I have my favourites.
Male cypher: Mode9!!!!!!! yes BOSS :D , MI then XO did it for me in that order and Naeto C is my least favourite.
 Actually, there were some people that were not sure about XO's lyrics in this cypher including me but I found his lyrics as one of the comments for this video on youtube and I found it interesting but the thing is you have to be audible and deliver your lines well for people to get you.
oh well, thought I should share XO's lyrics with you all.
"The Outlook’s bright, that’s the Word, all I do is Excel And Casey Anthony rappers, my flow should be on the pill The Lyrical Dangote, even Aliko couldn’t get on this ‘bill’ Last year I watched this from my office – now I’m here – Surreal! Pray for me, I’m spittin’ in a sick way, and I’m (Azikwe Nnamdi) – Truth! Yeh “We Are Africans – Awoo!” But the rap crown was roaming (Roman) and so I ceased her (Caesar) – Poof! Talking ‘racks on racks on racks’? ‘Maybachs on bachs on bachs’?Not stopping ’til Fortune companies hire Blacks on Blacks

Dagrin and Amy Winehouse, RIP!
Now “Back to Black” E.T.
I B-E-T that if yo B C’s D’s (b****/baby sees these)
She will press ‘pause’ (paws) on me, like I’m E-V-E
The sickest lyricist to spit it infinite in minutes is winning would dream it like Hakeem but now like Brixton I’m “innit” (in it)
U see I sawed this beat, its now an eye sore in the I.C.U.
Buzzing ’bout who the best be(e)?
I’m all 3 … Minus 2!"
so I found this writeup and I agree with whoever put it up 

"BET cypher is not about finding rhymes from nursery books. It is much about your creativity with story telling and how you can find good word plays to push it. I looked at all the cyphers and i find the Nigerian cypher the weakest(I am Nigerian lol). It just hurt that the truth is not always supported in Nigeria just the way our politicians use bias to put people to lead industries when we have world class managers everywhere in Nigeria and abroad.  If we really want to set a bench mark for hiphop in Nigeria, we should get a cue from Mode. He leads the next rapper in Nigeria with a long stretch.

Mode 9 - I got introduced to his songs by a friend who was a big fan. After hesitating at first, i decided to give it a try and that was it. For years, i have seen arguments on who tops him in Nigerian hip hop but i am ashamed to see that we Nigerians, though claim to know one or two things about rap are just plain commercial. We don't appreciate conscious music. I wonder how Asa managed to sell albums in the country.  He is straight classic and would go pound for pound with any American MC.

M.I. - On the average, he did not disappoint compared to the other guys, but i think he was trying too hard. A real hardcore rap is mostly about punchlines and fluidity rather than vocabularies. M.I's intro was good though. (Reference to Joe Budden on the Slim 2.0 cypher)....

Sauce Kid - My love for sauce kid does not go beyond rap. I just like him as a rapper and i can acknowledge his ability but he always come to most as an underperformer rather than one with no rap skills. He did not do badly on the cypher and he managed to have a story line rather than finding rhymes like others were doing...

Ice Prince - A rare combination of poor rapability and childish punchlines. NO storylines. He reminded me of some 9ice's songs who gathers adages from wherever to make a song. He DEFINITELY has no....

X.O. - To most people, he came as a disappointment on the cypher after so much hype. I really don't think he did that bad rapability wise and story lines, its just that he wasn't audible enough. There is something wrong with his accent. It came bad on that particular cypher. If he would make another cypher,....

Naeto C - I love him as a Nigerian artist, i don't think he has what it takes to go on the world stage. He is only going to be a bomb waiting to explode. He should feed us with more swag in naija and we will be appreciative of that. "


  For the ladies, they all tried too and they looked really good. EVA killed it for me.. love her plenty and I just didn't get SASHA smh.. by the way, does anyone know why retta was in that video? x_x.

what do you think?
much  luv,

A BLOG TO LOVE -> musings of a caramel latte addict

 I admire writers a lot, the way they are able to tell a story so well that I'll actually be in tears by the time I'm done reading amazes me. Well, I came across a great blog today and I just have to share it with you all as I have spent a considerable amount of time today reading posts on the blog and "musing" with the blogger.
 MUSINGS OF A CARAMEL LATTE ADDICT-> http://temiville.wordpress.com/
The blogger

She tells her stories(most on relationships and marriage) so well that you almost forget its fiction and the great part is she brings in the Word of God to help her readers understand more and learn a whole lot.
She reminds me of my brother(last born) who has suddenly become wiser than everyone in the house :D and constantly takes me to  the Bible when he is trying to make me understand some real life issues.Anyways, I found her stories amazingly true and worth reading and I hope you check it too 'cos you'll definitely find it interesting.

http://www.bellanaija.com/2010/11/10/bn-prose-the-waiting-by-temiloluwa-adebayo/ - her write up on bella naija which currently has over 170 comments. made me cry *sigh* i cry a lot, i know!!

Her top 10 most popular posts according to a wordpress feature/gadget:

I found this in one of her posts ...interesting...:
"No amount of love a man has for you can ever stop him from cheating on and mistreating you.
 Only the degree of love he has for GOD can stop him from hurting you. 
He treats you well as a sign of his reverence and commitment to God. 
You are simply a beneficiary of his unflinching obedience to the Word of God which says, 
husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the Church. 
Therefore, you should focus on the degree of love that man has for God, not for you"

In other news, I LOVE ANDREA BOCELLI and I leave you with a great song THE PRAYER by Andrea that he performed with Celine Dion

much love,

'I have breast cancer,' reveals E! presenter Giuliana Rancic at 37

Heath battle: TV presenter Giuliana Rancic revealed she has breast cancer on the Today Show this morning
Rancic made the announcement on NBC's Today Show this morning, admitting she will undergo surgery later this week.
She said: 'Through my attempt to get pregnant through IVF, we sadly found out that I have early stages of breast cancer. It's been a shock.'
Rancic and her husband Bill were preparing to undergo a third round of IVF treatment after two failed attempts when a doctor asked her to undergo a mammogram. 
She explained: 'I wasn't prepared to get a mammogram until I was 40 years old, like I'd been told. I never in my wildest dreams expected anything to be wrong. It was just a kick in the stomach.'

Recalling the moment she found out, Rancic said: 'I went into the hospital in L.A., when they came in to tell me, they said it pretty quickly, they just said, "I'm sorry, you have breast cancer."
'It's what you expect, but so much more, it was like, incredible instant sobbing and the world just crashed down around me. I couldn't believe it - 36 years old, no family history? I couldn't believe it.'
After her lumpectomy, Rancic will undergo six weeks of radiation therapy.
And despite her illness, Rancic is hopeful she and her husband will be able to resume IVF after her cancer treatment.
She said: 'I still want this baby ... because this baby has saved my life. I truly feel God was looking out after me... If I had gotten pregnant later down the line, I could have been a lot sicker.' [*pregnancy would have made the cancer spread faster*]

Supportive: The star with her husband Bill in New York on Thursday
I thank God the doctors detected it on time and I pray for her that God will see her through, give her and her husband the strength.
My heart also goes out to others fighting cancer. May God see them through and may they come out strong.

Accused: Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab will plead guilty, according to prosecutors
A Nigerian accused of trying to bomb a US-bound flight on Christmas Day 2009 has told his trial in Detroit that he is pleading guilty to all charges.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 24, told a judge he was admitting all eight counts against him, including terrorism and attempted murder.
Abdulmutallab was badly burned when a bomb sewn into his underwear failed to detonate fully, prosecutors say.
Almost 300 people were on the flight from Amsterdam to Detroit.
Abdulmutallab will be sentenced on 12 January 2012 but the BBC's Jonny Dymond, in Washington, says this is now a formality - Abdulmutallab will spend the rest of his life in prison.
Bomb: These are the remains of the underpants with the explosive used on a failed plot to blow up an airliner over Detroit on Christmas Day, 2009
picture of his burnt underwear
US Federal Judge Nancy Edmunds verified that Abdulmutallab understood his right to silence before asking him if he wished to make a plea.
"Do I understand correctly that you wish to waive that right [in order] to plead guilty to all the charges in the indictment?" she asked.
"Yes," the defendant replied.
He told the court the bomb was a "blessed weapon to save the lives of innocent Muslims".
"The US should be warned that if they continue to kill and support those who kill innocent Muslims, then the US should await a great calamity... or God will strike them directly," he said.
Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), which is based in Yemen, said it was behind the attack on 25 December 2009.
US investigators have said Abdulmutallab told them he was working for AQAP and had received the bomb from them, as well as training.
MORE ON: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-15278483

Oh well!! This is the end of his story as he'll most ikely be spending the rest of his life behind bars
my question to all these terrorists is 
why do you bomb innocent people that know nothing and say you are fighting the government??
I really don't understand.. shame on you Umar for trying to kill 300 people that had absolutely no idea about the killings of your muslim brothers.
much luv,
dangel eyez
