Getting set to cast your vote? Pushing people on the long voting queue? Eating Amala? Watching TV? Chatting with boo? Reading BlogsVila :-) Where do you think you would be this time next week? What would you be doing? How many of us here are actually going to be voting come the 28th?
Lagos is not called the centre of excellence for nothing. It is a mini Nigeria, full of action and interesting things. Anybody who has visited Nigeria without visiting Lagos has not visited Nigeria. One interesting thing about Lagos is the type of English spoken in it.
It is from Lagos that many Nigerians learn to add “shebi” or “sha” or “shey” to their English statements. So, you hear: “Shebi you know he has been promoted?” “He sha told me to forget about it.” “Shey you know their new address?” It has become an intrinsic part of the English of many people that it will be an uphill task to get them off the mouth of many.
What about statements that are meant to be questions? Lagos has it in abundance. So, when someone tells you: “I should come?” or “I should bring the document?” don’t assume the person is making a statement. No, those are questions. It is rare in Lagos to hear someone ask you: “Should I come” or “Should I bring the document?”
I was walking jejely on the streets of Lagos when i spotted this couple infront of me. I had to run closer to them to take pictures...they had no idea what i was doing sha, hehehe. Are you feeling their "love outfit"? Btw why must it be the woman bearing the Ajayi '2'? #JustAsking :-)

His name is Furtyle Brain and he is a dancehall artiste. The guy got real goat horns implanted into his head so he can stand out and be a bigger artiste.
29 year old Furtyle, whose real name is Kenardo André Robinson, said the implants were done in Jamaica by a Canadian-based surgeon. He said,
"It's really the process where the implants are implanted in the skull. I was sedated during the surgery but had to be given lots of painkillers when I was revived because it is very painful,"On why he did the surgery which has come with a lot of backlash, He said,
"I do believe that I got some form of prophetic instruction by God. I didn't do this alone. There are some people who think that I am demonic, but it doesn't bother me much as I am not the first artiste who is picked on. There are others who have done far less than I have done and have received a backlashing and bashing."Would God tell a man to look like a Goat so that he can stand out?

The epic Etcetera has written another mind-blowing article. Enjoy below,
Once again, Nollywood and President Jonathan are disconnected from the priorities of Nigerians. Millions are hungry and the country is headed off a cliff and what we get is the President having weekly dinner with celebs at Eko Hotel.
Mr. President should know that all entertainers in the country won’t amount to a spoon of water in the bucket of our population. I agree that our entertainers judging by recent behaviour are now seen as hungry men and women with insatiable appetite, but Mr. President, the larger part of the society are equally hungry and should be fed as well. Why feed just the entertainers? Isn’t that discrimination? What will the entertainers say to Jonathan except the usual lies and half truths? Can a man with a mouthful of undeserved food speak or say the truth?
You all know Seyi Law lost his unborn child right? Read here if you missed it. The comedian has addressed the sad event for the first time in an interview. Here's what he said about loosing his child...who would have been his first child and daughter,
“It is an experience I don’t want to share but at the point when we lost the child, I could not talk to my wife because as of that time, I had a lot running through my head. I was wondering how I could console her.
I am somebody who loves writing, so I decided to write something to celebrate the baby and make other people encourage me. I know that God is there and he would see us through but sometimes you are weak and you need somebody to pull you out of the gloomy mood. That was why I posted the message on the internet and a lot of encouragement poured in. It was so emotional, encouraging and soul lifting when you see people who you have not met tell you that they have passed the same road and they were able to overcome and mine would not be different. When you hear people pray for you, it makes you know that your case is in the presence of God and He is going to do something fast about it,”
When asked what led to the death of his daughter, the comedian almost broke down, pleading that
According to NBC News, Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Whitney Houston, has been moved to a rehabilitation facility from a Georgia hospital. This is coming almost two months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub.
Citing an unnamed source close to the family, the news network said that Brown's condition had not changed. The source did not say when she had been moved or where she would be, the network reported.
I believe if she has been moved, then she's most likely getting better. Thank God for God!
