NOW THAT URE BACK FROM THE WEEKEND...













My friends!
Like that song goes...
WELCOME BACK
WELCOME BACK
WELCOME BACK
WELCOME BACK!

Ekaabo so ri eto wa!
And all dat kain tin!

How was your weekend?
Like i promised, i managed to sneak in to the KNIGHT HOUSE video shoot!

Okay, let me explain.
KNIGHTHOUSE is z best production outfit in Las Gidi and beyond.
Made up of three dynamic (and cute) young men (Rogba 'CEO' Arimoro. Lanre 'KNIGHTSABRE' Oladimeji, and Tope 'OTHELLO' Gomez), they have their fingers in all production pies- television, radio, and of course, music!
Having worked with some of the best in the industry, they have gained underground acclaim, so it's now time to bring it to the streets, with their mixed tape, STREET SCRIPTURES, an album that features Loose Kaynon, Kel, Skuki, M.I, Mo Cheddar, Ill Bliss and other music industry 'low is high'weights. (That last bit will make sense later)

The video being shot was for one of the singles of the album, 'PURPLE', and it features M.I, Nyore (as in, dis chick too bahd, and too fly), and Mo Cheddar (she may be young but don't assume notin!)
Shot at Digitrack studios in TBS, and directed by AWIZZLE (a Taruwa regular), it featured Tito, Mike Majic, Mariam, Tope Oloketuyi, and short black girl with 34 C's.
It was an all day all night shoot cos after that, the video for 'Drums', featuring Kel, Ill Rhymes, Mo' Cheddah and EX-O, was also shot!
It was a full house with support from the Rooftop MC's, Godwin Tom, Al Hassan (SIDI AND AMBER), Lara, Loose Kaynon, Dayo Oyedele, Clarence Peters, Ice Prince (holler at your home girl sometym Prince), Yinka (Switched On Naija)...
We had a very special appearance- Osgy Wire, who like Kanye, made it through the wire, came to support her peoples!

Special big ups to BIO OMONEYIGHA of LABELLES TOUCH, the fastest growing make-up house in Naija.
She was on hand as more than just the make-up artiste on ground, she was also the costume lady, and the Production Manager.
That girl tiny but the energy!
She did everything, and it rocked that she got a cameo in the video.
You go see am!

I worked this weekend oh, staying up till 3a.m every night!
Thanks to my fellow insomniacs- Jerry Ossai, Chiagozem, and Jibola Lawal for keeping me company.
(ONLINE YOU NAUGHTY PEOPLE! THEY KEPT ME COMPANY ONLINE!)


This is gearing up to be one of those long posts but i have to give you an intro into three things, then give one of them, it's own post!

Starting from the last (but not by any means the least; infact, one could say we were saving the best for last. One could say so, but nah! LOL)

M.I has lately gone from underground sensation, to the most talked about hip-hop star, no thanks to singles like 'SHORT BLACK BOY' and 'FIVE MINUTES / SAFE', and performances at events like Taruwa (where he is a beloved favourite), Jeans for Genes, Launch of The Future season 4, An Evening With.., WAPi, Koffi's Comedy Show, Club Nomoreloss, and so on!

Now, his album is set to drop, and with the vibe we are getting, his originality, skills, swag, and charisma, will win him new fans and cement his hold on the old ones!
His album listening party is an eclusive first listen to new singles off the album, as well as the premiere for his video for 'Safe'.
The event, brought to you by s.h.a.r.e and CHYBUZ Consult, in conjunction with SWE BAR, will hold on the 2nd of November.

M.I is signed to CHOCOLATE CITY, run by Audu Maikori. Audu Maikori won the British Council International Young Music Entrepreneur award, and went on to win at the international level as well!


We wish we could have spent Saturday, November 1st resting, but we will be at FACE OFF, he celebrity basketball SHOW, featuring celebs like DBAnj, Ruggedman and Kel, going up against the Islanders!
This will hold at OceanView restuarant, from 4pm.


Which brings us to FRIDAY!
Friday Night!
Trick or Treat!
Red Carpet Costume Party!
Anyring you want to crall it!
LOL

The Funnest and Freakiest Costume PArry ever! is brought to you by s.h.a.r.e and Knighthouse, once again, in conjunction with SWE BAR!
It starts at 6.45pm, and admission is strictly by invite (and costume!)
To get on the guest list and get an invite, please send a text to
08038965864,
with your NAME, NUMBER (because u fit borrow phone now!), and costume ideas!

There are only 50 invites so the earlier the berrer!

And now, since i have become like NAS and started from end to beginning, it is time to tell you about what happens during the day on FRIDAY!

For clarification, RED AND BLUE day is NOT an event!
Don't ask us where it is holding, because it is not 'holding'.
It is simply a day, like every other day!
So if you go to work, abeg, go work that day oh, dont use our name lie!
If you go to school, pay attention to your teachers... or at least to the hot chick in front of you wearing that short skirt to class again!
And if you are socialising, then socialise like it's 1999 (dont know why i am obsessed with 1999)
Whatever you do, do it and do it well!

BUT
Do it, wearing RED and / or BLUE
Do it, giving us your status updates on facebook
Do it, talking to at least FIVE people about sickle cell

The 31st is the THESE GENES SICKLE CELL AWARENESS DAY
SO be aware, and get aware!

You understand me now?
LOL

Okay then!
It would seem that i have finally run out of ink!
We must go now!
