A Poem - FINISHED

Finished

That I returned
Carries a different meaning
Like Abiku,

There will be no pieces
Of you hanging
Anywhere around me.

Tuface’s song blew up ‘cause I was a part of it - Freestyle


He began as one third of the group Trybe’s Men. Today, he is no longer a caged bird because he has broken out of the bounds of group fidelity that restricted his wings to fly, with his debut album Free at Last, to account for his creativity. And what’s more, with the rate at which his songs are receiving massive air play, he might be a true prophet who knows that his fate has indeed been long ago settled with God. Freestyle appears as one of those artistes with dual personality because what you expect due to his public appearance isn’t what you get one on one. Without one of his head wears, Freestyle doesn’t look too different from American Hip Hop star Snoop Dogg, with his big T Shirts and Jeans. Only the height and long hair separated a perfect clone. In this interview with Uzezi Ekere, Freestyle spoke on the days of Trybe’s Men, his new album, his r…

IN DIRE NEED OF A SHRINK

I have been so busy that I have missed out of a lot. Including the ability and fun to blog. I thought I was ready for the year, but with the way things are going, I am beginning to think. There must be something wrong why I can’t seem to get my act together. In as much as there are so many activities I am presently involved in; the YPI (Young Professionals Impact), currently coming on strong and becoming, I am not the very hard working girl I used to be. I have absolutely no idea why I am so distracted from everything around me. Nothing seems to interest me; not even a new job I got that I just couldn’t bring myself to begin. Am I scared of the new challenges or what? This looks like a fear of moving ahead and I am surprised it is happening to me, because I am good at motivating myself to move and work. So just what the hell is happening to me? Do I need a shrink now? Maybe I will talk to Amina (my colleague) who read psychology. And of course, like the Pussycat Dolls, I’m just going …

Who Wants A Puppy

How did this get into my mail box?

I need a favor!!
One of my friends has a puppy he's giving away (FREE!).
It's a Dachshund, its house trained, and it's great with kids.

He's giving it away because his wife says the dog 'stares' at her when she is undressing, and that gives her the 'Heebie Jeebies'. I think she is just weird!

If you're interested, or know someone who is, let me know.
Here's a picture of the dog (see below)
