Have i Got some Entertainment Gist for YOU!!!

Let me start with some sad news first!
We have lost two greats in Nigeria in general, and the Entertainment world in particular!
Nicholas Anukanti, the television presenter, and Momoh Kubanji, the head of news at Radio Continental, and veteran broadcaster. They both sadly before celebrating a 50th birthday!
Tres sad, and we will miss them dearly!

Speaking of death, but more about life after death...
Fela would have celebrated a birthday this Thursday, but, even though he is now dead, his memory, and indeed his art, and influence lives on!
More so this week, Felabration week! With various performances holding at the shrine from Monday till today, Fela continued to live on, though it is doubtful that he would ever be forgotten!

If you like plays, and you like music, then how about a play that puts some of your favourite artistes on a stage... acting?
We spotted Snatcha of the Rooftop MC's on stage at Terra Kulture, in Tarzan Monologues, a play written by Wole Oguntokun!
Tarzan Monologues will hold every Sunday this month so it is not too late to catch it...him!

But if the only acting you want to see your artistes do is in their videos... here is some video news!
Lami has leaked a sneak peek of her video for her single, 'Nothing', online! We hear the full lenghth video is scheduled to hit television stations today!
Omawunmi's video for 'Today na Today' is also out! Girl looks toh bad!

From certain news to not so certain!
We have gist of two important meetings that held recently, but we can only guess that we will not know the outcomes for a few days or weeks!
The first meeting was 'drinks' at Red! But when drinks has entertainment heavyweights like Bobby Taylor, M.I, Banky W, Olamide Adedeji and more in attendance, then as our people say, the handshake has reached the elbow!

The other meeting had ladies such as Sasha, Joke Jaiyesinmi, Baby and Joice Ize-Iyamu, in attendance! It was a closed door meeting, and while they have refused to release an official statement, our spy got a code word out of them- GNO!

Guess what, there is no way we will rest till we get the full gist!

WE do have full gist about some international artistes! Like keri Hilson who is scheduled to appear in the Big Brother House today! Lucky housemates!
Not so lucky is Leona Lewis who was reportedly hit in the face by a fan at the signing for her book, 'DREAMS'.
pele oh!

And you must have all heard about the MAMAs!
Congratulations to our naija artistes!
M.I, PSquare, DBanj...
And of course, to Nameless, Samini and HHP!

So, that's all folks!
For today at least!

A Day at the Stylists

If there is one thing i took away from my consultation with a (my) stylist today, it is that i am a ‘vase’. And no, that does not refer to something you put flowers in! Since there is no way you could put flowers in me. Water maybe, but not flowers.
But then i digress.

So, apparently, the ‘Vase’ body type is the body type that... You know what? I. Do. Not. Remember.
Cos i blanked out after she told me that contrary to what i had always believed (imagined, deluded myself into thinking), i. Did. Not. Have. Long. Legs.

Beauty is a funny thing. Your whole life can change at one seating, and your whole world can be rocked with three words or less. Or more. But more less than more.
I mean, how many girls have had one of those days when they have dressed the best. In their own eyes. And then they spend the day and night searching for compliments, but none come. And just when they cannot take it any longer, they ask someone how they look. And the person says, “Fine”.
Stab me while you are at it, you unable-to-string-more-than-one-word-together-friend/p.a/enemy!

But back to my consultation.

There i was at work when they came in, asking if i had more blue tones or yellow tones in my wardrobe. Look, i didn’t even know my wardrobe had tones okay!
And apparently, human beings are Autumn, Winter, and something else.
But i am Nigerian!
What happened to harmattan and rainy season and August break?

Orange or Fushia Pink>
Err... whichever one i take out of Funke’s wardrobe first?

And on and on it went.
By the time they sat me down, put some shades of colour on me and took my picture though, i could see what they meant! While orange made me come alive, fuschia pink made me look dead.
But you know i exaggerate right?

What else?
Make up.
These are some of the colours that will suit you.
We will have a full profile typed and delivered to you by the end of the week.
Now let us measure you.

Which is when i realised i do not have long legs.
But the good news apparently is that i have good ..., a nice waist, and something else i missed, while smiling at the fact that my C’s where back!

It was fun though. Inspite of my moaning and resisting.
But i still truly want to know...
What colours are harmattan?
