There's a friend......

Aunty Helen and baby Dubem...leaving the hospital

Helen and baby dubby
It is not everyday we encounter people with hearts of gold, people who leave very positive indelible prints on our lives. I have come across good people and i have come across a good person. HELEN EGBE is one of the best things that happened to me. More than a decade i've known her and all she has been is good to me, even when I hurt her and our friendship was shaken, she forgave and let go. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and I can never tell the story of the birth of my son without her. From enduring my whines and bearing my every whim to being right there watching as I brought my son forth. While I may be a writer, words have failed me at this point, and all I can say is thank you so much Helen! my family will never ever forget, we will never.Thank u!!!

5 Things You Didnt Know About the new HONEYWELL NOODLES commercial

I'm sure most of us have seen the Honeywell Noodles TV commercial  making waves, where the children went after a certain hero and joins him in singing and choreography... now below are 5 things about that TV commercial that you didnt know:

1. Yours truly came up with that concept and the Bam Bam La La slogan....oh yes I did! me! Nonye!! *large smile*

2. The agency behind it is DP Partnership Ltd, subsidiary of Franchise Law and Kenneth. ...Expect more banging commercials from us

3. The lead character was initially supposed to be Mo'Cheddah but we needed a character that could cut across all geo-political zones and appeal to every market...using Mo'Cheddah might have been an issue in the North

4. Video was shot and produced in South Africa by Video Lounge Production House

5. My husband laughed me to shegee when I first came up with the Bam Bam La La line...I almost dropped it but boy! are we both glad I didnt?! you bet!

So there you have it....Blessed weekend ya'all.

Oyibo gbaa oku! (burn!)

Nigeria is one country i'm struggling to really hate, I want to hate this country but somehow the crush wont die....

Oyibo? Britico? Ndi ocha England? I dislike them! I definitely have a thing or two to learn from them and Nigeria wont turn out bad if we sat under their tutorial bench for a while BUT  i no like them and here's why:

Before now, I felt Britsh were too uptight albeit very efficient and straight forward people,I still feel so but I didnt know how badly insensitive and inhumane they were, and this is in addition to their paganism. How can someone fall down right in your eyes and to say common "sorry" go hard you? I even heard they sometimes say 'shame on you' when person fall, Wo! God help the damburuba that would have said that to me, azin me and you go tear brazie for bus stop.

Walahi I saw a lot of nonsense in the last 3months I spent in the UK. These people are total bonkom! itibonkom! komkom. Let me talk about this particular day. I went to Primark (the store after my heart!, yes I said it, fry!) I had walked in pushing my baby in his buggy and feeling very ok with myself as I headed straight for the "was 5pounds now 2pounds" section. Soon as I started picking out my fabies, my son reacted. One after the other he opened his eyes and next thing he was crying out so loud uncontrollably and I had to quickly rush towards the fitting room to try to sort him out. On getting there the qwi (que) was so long and I dumped the clothes on the floor, went down on my knees and started feeding him right there! When I looked up I saw a group of indians standing around me offering to help with whatever they could. What did these smell smell oyibos do? stand and stare at me! The kindest among them would just smile and walk past, mothers oo!  That was episode one. Episode 2: Here is a young mother struggling to get her buggy into the bus which had started moving slowly, rather than get up and assist me they all sit there giggling like something is tickling them under their skirts! Fastforward to episode 990 or so: my hubby and I hired a cab to take us to a hotel and the foolish man would not help put our things in the car! mba! we paid him to drive us not to pack our ngwongwo....Or have you tried shopping and the total came to 5.99 and all you had was 5.98? nobody dey leave 1pence for you o! Lagos conductors are much kinder! Anyways I don tire to type biko,time is money.

N/B: pls 'fee' free to judge me by the typos you see here and put urself on a very long thing!
