Back to the matter...What made us think we could defeat France?...Our everyday prayer for a team that lacks the determination, spirit, zeal and technical jargon's?. Watch the movie, 300 and see how people fight for glory just like the Americans, the Ghananians and some others...I am not the best of a football analyst..I actually might be lost when you ask me what playing seven or ten is but trust me, I do know what a defender or midfielder is..that brings me to Mikel Obi, He was apparently absent from that match...what exactly happened to the highly rated Chelsea glory?
Stephen Keshi has done his best but was it good enough, and perhaps, this might not be the actual team list he had in mind because politics has taken a centre place in everything we do as Nigerians..and so, he resigns but bros, just go back peacefully to your family and perhaps, Mikel should apply next...I said Mikel right?
The glory of the latter days shall be greater than the former...Vincent Enyeama in the past was not quite a goal keeper of choice but his contribution at this world cup is quite historic, he saved for glory and whether he quits or not, his name will never be forgotten..I say the best man that gave us some pride...Well, the Africans have ended their quest and Algeria actually scored against Germany even though they loss but we never scored any goal..All na story I guess but let us just welcome them back in good faith and perhaps, we are going back to the drawing board again..which by now, should be filled up with so many jargons..?

In a recent interview, Kenny St.Brown says the increase has gone up by almost 1000% and there has to be a change and I believe If every Legislator takes up one social issue for each of their term...things might be better in Nigeria and Kenny feels strongly about her quest...Time will tell but please, I think you should start from your community or perhaps, go to your state of origin and take off from there, that is the trend in politics these days..everyone seems to be running home!
I am concerned about my nation in so many ways, we spend a lot to travel and in situations like this, the dead is even stranded to return home...Now, It is the intervention of her state governor that settles everything...meanwhile, her husband, Don-Momoh would have to return first before receiving his late wife..She will be buried at her home town, Sapele, Delta State.
Jimi says his philosophy of life is Live, Love and Laugh..and all of these can be reflected in the way he carries himself around people, he also adds that it is important for models to be professionals, humble, original and confident everywhere they find themselves, especially at their job. This graduate of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago iwoye, Ogun State experienced a boarding school at age 3 while in the Nursery class..I say the beginning of being independent which some parents might find awkward but we can see the outcome today for Jimi..
Sometimes, our producers do not know how to conclude their stories and they end up giving us narrative statement; for example- Actor A finally got married to Actress D and their house maid was sentenced to 10 years inprisonment..Is that too hard to fix into the movie...?
Torn was well built but got slow along the line..some scenes were dragged for too long especially the climax of the movie..I must also commend Bimbo Manuel; He is one of the best craft in Drama; calm and confident..If you love thrillers, then you need to buy a copy of Torn...
In Her Shoes- great storyline, good cast but a poor character development from the local to the affluent life of the two major characters played by Rukky Sanda and Oge Okoye, perhaps Rukky should leave the directing of the movie to an experienced professional and an artistic director who would have helped create a better transition from one phase of life to another.
Yemi Blag actually gave a good interpretation to his own character and as usual, I always have an issue with how IK.Ogbonna acts because he exudes too much sexiness when delivering his roles and this overshadows the message; Acting is when you completely put aside your religious background, idealogy, sexiness, beauty, intelligence and completely put on a new person...The change of personality and accent in the their new found life was just so quick and became quite irritating for me...Did she watch Jenifa to see how long it took her to adjust to a new life...
In Her Shoes is actually not a new movie because I know quite a lot must have seen it but I hope my comments are not too late..

In the past, members of the Senate from Lagos were completely against the nomination of Roli as a member of the Population Commission, an issue that stirred controversy at the Senate..Is this the level our politics had reached now because I would love to know the criteria in selecting her as a new DG..I do hope she understands what her office entails, this is not about political party dramas or hate game..It is about service to your nation...

|Tuface Idibia and Daughter, Olivia Idibia|
What exactly can you do with 1000 Naira in this present economy?...absolutely nothing but guess what, it must have been an honour for Hakeem Onilogbo years back when he got paid for his contribution to an home video...Hakeem's home is like an Art Gallery; from the colors and pictures that are well arranged on the wall, It only proved he has an history of being a painter. Before my interview with him started, I was well attended to by his lovely wife and first child, unlike some other cuties who shy away at the presence of a strange face in their house, this little girl welcomed me with a smile...
36 year old Hakeem is a Nigerian from Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, studied Industrial Signage and Worked with the Advertising Agency for some time...he has created special effects for more than 60 movies since 2007 when he ventured into this creative arm of movie making and am sure you might be wondering where did he train, who mentored him and what does it take to be like him?..He does anything..I was thrilled myself when he showed me a surgical scene like what you see on Grey's Anatomy.
In 2007 when he converted from Islam to christianity, he had a dream where he got the revelation to his dream career, sounds weird right but you have no idea where that dream has led him today; awards, happy marriage, good life and exposure...perhaps, we all need such dreams in our lives. Hakeem does not take on any job; He says it must be challenging because that is the only way he broadens his knowledge..Today, movie producers work with his schedule and not the other way round.
Hakeem joyfully thanked Oreofe Williams, Nollywood producer and Director, Ernest Obi and Actor, Jibola Dabo for their immense contribution to his career and the respective roles they played ..Oreofe Williams who produced ''Awo Jesu'' back then gave him the opportunity of acting and handling the make up..Ernest Obi nutured him to this stage and inspires him as a writer...By the way, his wife stayed all through this interview watching with joy has Hakeem expressed himself and did not hold back any story regarding his creative talent.
On a second thought, a scary part about his story was the various physical and spiritual threat he faced in the course of doing his job..at first, he faced war with the yoruba genre as regards his uniqueness for 4 years, which actually led him to switch to the English/Igbo division of the Industry where he has been dazzling everyone with his craft but surprisingly, he narrated an ordeal that almost took his life during a production at Owerri, Imo State capital.
Professionally, Hakeem Effect Onilogbo is a unique brand because the likes of M-Net production, Action Movie Producer, Teco Benson have also caught the bug of his work..He draws extra inspiration from the likes of Josh Counsel, a special effect based in the United States and Edward Adams..Creativity comes from anything as Hakeem uses food supplements to achieve his effects. He got his first award in 2012; The Best Make up Artist from the Nigerian Film Critics Award in the U.S.A. He was also the Most Outstanding Crew 2010, courtesy of the National Association of Nigerian Theatre Art Practitioners for the movie LabaLaba produced by Deji Etiwe.
His job takes most of his time as he spends three days at home before travelling to a movie location. He has a plan of building a special make up and effect school where he will train men and women in that regard..While he was strolling back memory lane, his wife served us a perfect meal of a Yoruba home- Eba(made from Garri) and Ewedu Soup... the appearance of the meal was unavoidable for my stomach and so we had to take a break off the interview while we dealt with the meal.
It was 2 hours of wonderful tales and inspiration...a testimony of grass to grace..He says''many have tried following the trend of just acting including me but i had to venture into this part to be different'' and I must say he is very different...Hakeem listed about 5 movie titles he intends producing in the future. More images of his creative work...

However, the age is my concern...without disputing his wisdom, knowledge and intellectual capacity towards politics..can his body and age stand the drama, stress and uncertainty that comes with the present day politics in Nigeria?
Meanwhile, sources states that John Oyegun is a close ally of Senator Bola Tinubu, who happens to be a top frontier of the party nationwide...his major contender, former Governor of Bayelsa State, Timipre Sylva who will clock 50 next month had to step down for him.
I do not have a problem with his outfit but very inappropriate at such a gathering as this but I guess he is trying to pass a political message at all cost, anywhere, anytime...moreso, It is too bright a color for mourning such a talented woman..and someone might just ask, for what reason are we here..Amaka Igwe or the APGA man, as seen in this image?

I really liked that era where we just had two major parties and similar to what operates at the United States of America, where they have the Democrats and the Republicans..How did we really end up at our present state?
The social media is already busy with several people pouring out their hearts via words to her husband and family members for this great loss..It is a great loss because she was a very young active woman, wife and musician...May her soul rest in peace.
This is Amarachi Uyanne, winner of Nigeria Got Talent Season 1, she defeated several talented grown ups to emerge winner and has gone ahead to shoot very lovely videos..Now, that is my celebrity, A child who is magical at a very young age..she will inspire several children across the continent, she will inspire parents to believe in their children...
Omotola Jalade Ekeinde is a United Nations World Food Programme Ambassador, going to missions in Sierra Leone and Liberia. She has an NGO-Omotola Youth Empowerment Programme;It brings youths together for an empowerment walk and convention and many other projects..Success does not come over night..take a look into her person and experience back in the days of mortal inheritance and you will know how far she has come..She is a celebrity!
I think I will stop here..I respect any choice you might have as to who is a celebrity..Being a top spender at every bar and lounge does not count on my list as a criteria for being a celebrity..Being the Alpha and Omega of Tweeter followers does not count either..If you cannot affect humanity positvely and leave hope in the life an average Nigerian, then you should check your celebrity status...
