Live, Learn and Do Not Sweat the Small Stuff

I know that I’ve not kept to my promise of two posts monthly. Last month I actually wrote, but ended up on finishing it and of course I didn’t publish it either. I finally sat down to write this some minutes past one. I must confess that I’m currently not too busy either so dashing off a post ought to …

Radical New Schedule

It’s the end of May (a few days into June, I know) and once again I’ve done what I promised I would not. Sigh! I’ve been writing, in fact I’ve been at it all month but I’ve just not been writing about the usual. I’m guilty…of letting the ‘work of writing’ not let ‘the pleasure of writing’ get a voice. …

Lessons from a Movie Set 2

So a movie set has a lot going on and this means people are pretty busy with one thing or the other. It might not be on set per se, but all things mesh together every single day. In simple English, it means that everyone connected to a movie production has one function or the other to fill. The set …

Birthdays, Gifts and Social Media

So yesterday was my birthday, there was no cake, but lots of laughter and loved ones were part and parcel of the celebration as much as possible. There was also a dress, Chinese food, some James Bond kinda manoeuvres (don’t ask), Hugh Jackman (one of my all time crushes), conversations and a humungous steak! Yup, you guessed it, it was …

Lessons from a Movie Set

Many of us love to hate our Nollywood movies and would rather be caught dead than at the cinemas watching one. We thumb our noses at them and ne’er a good word for it even if we do. On the other hand, a few of us champion them and can reel off the names of not only actors but some …

Back in the Saddle

Just like that it’s March. Didn’t we just say happy New Year a couple of days ago? I’m a fine one to talk right? It’s been a pretty long while (since July last year to be precise) since I wrote anything here. What’s my excuse I hear you ask? The usual culprit gets blamed for people not having a life, …

BVN Woes

I’m a peaceful law abiding citizen and prefer to stay that way. So when personal documents etc have to be renewed I like to do so well before expiration dates, the same goes for bill payments and the like. Once adequate notice has been given I like to get them over and done with, last minute.com does not sit well …

About Last Tuesday

The second half of 2016 has begun…so just go for it already! This week that just passed was something else, especially with the lingering aftermath from TARUWA. As always it was great to be amongst this set of absolutely insane (no be lie o), creative and down to earth people. Listening to Obi, Plumbline, Eklipse, Four strings and others do …

New Neighbours

At one time or the other you might have been the new kid in class, the strange face amongst those clearly acquainted. The gateman might have also asked you the person you’re visiting when you happen to have been in residence for the past two weeks. Or maybe you ran into a few people in the premises and because of …

Culinary Adventures: My Peanut Butter Appetite

I was recently introduced to Skippy, a brand of peanut butter that I had hitherto happily ignored. I now consider it the ish, as it has become my go to item; it’s so bad that I find myself eating/licking it sans anything else. Like everyone else I’d seen it on shelves but never thought to buy, that is until Ty …
