ITS COLIN POWELL, FORMER US SECRETARY OF STATE DANCING YAHOOZEE!!!This ridiculousness went down at the ThisDay Africa Rising concert which held at the Royal Albert Music Hall, London, England. WTF(in a good way)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good to know Naija dance is making an impact outside these SMH at the look on Olu Maintain's face and the bad way the cameras caught him, he looks constipated. Some hilarious ish there.

Channel O awards 2008 winners + the 1st MAMAs - Mtv Africa Music Awards 2008 nominees

Ok people, the awards finally went down with the hosts looking right as expected. And a couple of ours took the awards for their categories. As y'all can see, i came through for Ikechukwu's "Wind am well" my voting must've meant something. P-Square did right with Best Duo/group Video category and the Video of the year category too. Nice one to KC Presh and MTrill as well as all the other winners too. I knew Freshlyground were winning for "Pot belly", nice ass song and video. Dunno if y'all will forgive me for this but i think P-Square have other videos that kill "Do me". For goodness sakes "No One like you" and my personal favorite, "More than a friend", well, those are my personal opinions. Does anyone agree with me? The list of winners below...

Best Male Video: Ikechukwu - Wind Am Well
Best Female Video: Lizha James - Nita Mukuma Kwini

A little faith

It's so frustrating how from time to time things go soooooo bad and you feel like you're completely beat down and in serious need of a pick me up as in a major pick me up. When nothing seems to be going right and you can't find anything to make it better. In a bid not to come off too spiritual, i'm using this post as my prayer for everybody going through one hard thing or the other. Keep the faith, life's gonna get better. God bless you.

Some random celeb news + magazine covers

As we can't ever get enuf of these lovely celebs, i've decided to bring y'all some celeb news today.

T.I. (the love of my life) just turned 28 and had a party, "The Untouchables, Part Deux" at the Biltmore. If y'all recall He, Li'l Wayne & Young Jeezy had a combo party last year they called "The Untouchables" so apparently, this is part 2. Looked like it was a cool party. Here's wishing my darling boy all the very best. Photos of the cutie at his party...
His birthday cake...yumm...and a random photo of the cutie just being a cutie... no comments on his girl, Tiny, absolutely no comments. Yes,people, I'm playahating!!!

Laila Ali, her husband, Curtis Conway & their brand new bundle of joy/future boxer, Curtis Muhammad Conway (Jr.) here repping the fabulous wholesomeness of family life. Truly's hard to believe she throws punches for a living. She's a banger!

VIBE,my favorite urban music magazine's releasing a historical collector's edition for November with no other than Barack Obama on the cover. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy. With the way i do my own Obama campaign, u'd think i'm American or at least live in America, when in fact, NOTHING!!! lol. I just love the guy's swag and to make it even better, he's a brotha. Yes we can!!!
Another magazine cover i'm feeling right now's the November Ebony one, its got 3 strong women on the cover. JHud, Queen Latifer & Ms A Keys. Lovely cover i must say and whoever did the hair and make up sure hooked Ms Hudson up and stepped up her game this time. They also rep the king, Obama, on the cover.

That's it 4 now, people. I'll try not to be too boring next time. It's 5:12am and i've been up all night. Instead of me to give y'all quality ish to read, i've been busy downloading music. Make una no mind me,abeg. Peace!!!
