My Weekend In Pictures (and words)


Traumatised my Twitter followers and people at home with my new favorite meal combination!!

Indomie & Efo Riro

Received confirmation from ZAIN and co. that they received letters sent regarding changing the MAMA's slogan...


Then it was off to theLatin Dance Club for my very first Burlesque lesson...

Burlesque Props

Lol...I learned how to 'Bump n Grind', shut the door of a car by 'popping' my Booty, and also all kinds of 'Shimmies'!!

That was just the Introductory Class...more to come this week!!

Oyinda Sexy Burlesque Instructor


Work...and then went to have my hair braided!! If anyone knows a Recruitment Agency for the KGB or CIA...please let them know that the girl in the Salon where I braided my hair will make a great Torture Chamber-Lady!!

Went for my Egbon's birthday party at Base Lounge later!!

Then hung out with 'The Kingpin'*huge blush*

I really enjoyed hanging out with 'The Kingpin'!! It was really nice...we went to the Club together! I've known 'The Kingpin' for quite a bit, but its the first time we'd actually go out together...gosh I'm saying too much already and why the heck can't I stop smiling?!!

The conventional things like how many bottles of Champagne a guy would buy in the Club, or all those other kind of stuff don't really impress me...but I was quite impressed by the 'The Kingpin' that night...with the effect he seems to have on everyone!!

From the Bouncers to the 'Aboki's' selling outside the Club, to even random people driving past the Club, everyone was screaming his name and soooo excited to see him. It wasn't like he was throwing money at them or anything, it was more of a deep RESPECT for him, which I could tell made them respond that way to seeing him.

Hence, I tagged him the name 'The Kingpin'. Anyway, enough of that for now...I'm sure you get the picture...I had a really GREAT time!!


Work...went to interview rapper, Ikechukwu for 360 CHAT WITH TARI!!

Ikechukwu & I

Was a lovely Interview...Ikechukwu opened up on many sides of himself he hasn't spoken about before!! Will be out soon...

Then it was off to Terra Kulture to hang out with the girls...

Bella Naija Features Editor, Glory Edozien & Inspiration FM's Wana Udobang

Wana was chairing a Book Review organised by Farafina...we stayed for dinner afterwards!!

That was my dinner...topped it up with Nigeria's Official Drink...


Since I've dropped the Pension-starved Prostitute look, we decided to go to Bungalow's!! The same Bouncers threw open the I was right about the hair...they also apologised to me anyway!!

Glory Edozien

We ran into some company there...

Noble Igwe...getting his female swag on!!

Dami Olaiya & Noble Igwe

Dami & MAI Atafo

It was off to KARAOKE from there...

Wana..wrecking the mike

Artistes like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Usher and many others must have been having seizures from what we were doing to their songs at Karaoke!!

Had some really juicy Sharwarma...did a brief stint at the Industry Nite/Nigeria Entertainment Awards Nominees Party holding at Saipan...then its was off to Marquee..

Saw 'The Kingpin' at some point in the evening...he was looking AMAZING!! *shameless smile*

I couldn't get over this HUGE glass my Hennessey was served in...

Had a really great Saturday with the girls...there is no subject under the sun that we didn't talk about that day!! They all have such intelligent and positive minds! Thanks've given me soooooo much Blog Content!! *smile*


Woke up...had a massive brain touch which made me jump out of bed, grab a few books and head over to one of my Secret places to chill all by myself!!

Well, not exactly by myself...had some company...

Left there after a couple of hours of deep thinking while soaking up the sun and serenity...went to another Secret Place!!

Realised I hadn't eaten anything all day when I got there...but in my brain touch inspired rush, I had no money...well, except this...

So all I could afford was this...

Muffin & Zobo

Fear did not allow me eat that Muffin ooooo!! The thing looked like a weapon of Mass destruction...

Mean-Ass Muffin

As in don't wanna be in a Food Fight and the other team has those Muffins as ammunition!!

Anyway, I drank my Zobo and read the newspapers until the Bestie came to rescue me...

I miss Tones, so I was poring over her work in ELAN!! She went to Italy to shoot at a wedding!

Seun Opaleye

We had chicken wings and loads of Palm Wine...

Later lay on mats in the sun as I taught her my infamous Stretching Routine...our bodies felt like we had visited a Pleasure Paradise not too long after!!

So that was my Weekend!! Hope you had a great one too...enjoy your week!! And please if you really do feel anything about the 'giving Africa a voice' MAMA's slogan...change it by signing the Petition!!
