Featuring a stellar cast of heavy lifters, the movie starred Wale Ojo, Kemi Lala Akindoju, Hilda Dokubo and featured the triple Grammy Award Winner Angelique Kidjo in her debut role as a ruthless employment consultant.

The entire cast was present in London’s prestigious Leicester Square Vue Cinema The ladies sparkled and dazzled; Aurelie in mesmerising green, and (killer lady) in show stopping white. All eyes were on Angelique Kidjo as her tiny frame, draped in traditional African print, buzzed and captivated all in attendance.

The gentlemen were effortlessly elegant in suits, with Wale Ojo stealing the show in a matching shirt and blazer created from beautiful African print also.

Here Comes the Lady In Blue ... #OnTheJob

Hi Guys,

I got an opportunity to host the red carpet at a conference recently and I couldn't decide what to wear. 

I was already in church on Sunday morning when I received the invitation and I did not think what I wore to church was good enough. I had on a black dress with a pair of flats (It was a laid back Sunday).

I decided to go back home to change and ended up pairing a blue shirt with a blue skirt and a pink pair of shoes. I'm not a fashion blogger o, lol. But I think I looked good. 

What do you think?


I Sat In Amanpour's Seat!!! - At CNN London

Every year, FBN Holdings sponsors select journalists to attend a 3-day training in the United Kingdom. This training is done in furtherance to support knowledge-based journalism among Nigerian practitioners under its Media Thought Leadership and Capacity Enhancement Initiative. UK-based media-training firm, EMF Consulting Limited, London organized it.  I work with YNaija as a Presenter, so I was very excited when I was selected to represent the company at this training. 

Day1 - Training with Dayo Olomu
The moment I stepped into the conference room, I received fresh energy because of who the facilitator was: Dr. Dayo Olomu. Dayo Olomu is an accomplished motivational speaker, addressing over 100,000 people each year - a coach, business transformation strategist, personal development trainer and best selling author.

Dayo brought life to a training that could otherwise have bored us to sleep (considering we just got off a very long flight). The workshop was on Strategic Digital Publishing & Marketing. Dayo talked about the changing nature of journalism (Print vs. Digital), personal branding, marketing, leadership, how to make money online, need for original and creative content amongst other subjects.

Day 2
Located somewhere in South London, The Voice Newspaper is the largest black print newspaper in the United Kingdom and it has been in existence.

They spoke to us about their history in the UK, their growth and the strategies they have applied over the years in an age where print is gradually going out of style and free distribution of newspapers. Since going digital, they have learned to go at the right pace that is fit for the organization.

Heading to CNN I was quite sure about what to expect but what I did want to know was how they have managed to remain number 1 over the years without compromising and giving in to pop-culture. On arrival we were handed visitors’ passes and lead through the building (which also houses cartoon network and others) into a conference room.

After a brief chat with the digital head of CNN London, I realized something: it is not negotiable for you to continually innovate yourself and your brand. He talked about how CNN has evolved over the years starting with news, to politics, travel and more. He further stressed the importance of creative thinking and staying ahead of the market such that before a need arises they already have supply for it.

Our visit ended with a tour of the CNN studios where I got to take lots of pictures and I even sat in Christina Amanpour’s chair!

That wrapped up my 3-day journalist training in London; I was on the first flight out of London the next day. As sponsored by FBN Holdings, this is a great initiative and I’m sure the journalism industry in Nigeria will greatly benefit from it.

Owanbe Saturday, Naija Food & My Car Troubles

"All is well that ends well ... "
Photo: AkaraAyo

There's nothing more embarrassing (for a lady) than getting dressed, makeup on fleek, your satellite gele well done and then your car decides not to work.

I love my Saturdays, I cherish them. This is mostly because I work throughout the week. Though my job (I'll tell you about my job later) is not an 8am - 5pm job per se, my week days are almost always very busy. So you can't blame me when Saturday comes around and all I just want to do is lie in bed, eat and watch movies. 

But this particular Saturday, there was a wedding that I could not miss. I'm friends with the couple, they attend my church and so I just had to be there. That same day I had to attend a "Food is Art" fair by FirstBank that I was invited to; so it was going to be a busy day.

After spending 1hour on my makeup and gele, I was on top of the world and strutting down the stairs of my apartment (I live with my friends) in Surulere only for me to get to my car and realize that the engine oil was almost dry!!


I had bought a new keg of engine oil during the week so I packed up my very long dress with one hand and proceeded to "top" the oil. I opened the car hood and tried to open the cover of the engine but it refused to open. I dropped the keg and dropped my dress; then I applied all the strength my thin arms could gather and yet the cover did not bulge. Frustration started to kick in. I was running late, my hands were dirty and I was starting to sweat under the hot Lagos sun. 

After a few more attempts, I gave up. I returned the unopened keg of engine oil to the boot (trunk) and sat in the car. After a few moments I decided to "risk it". I decided to drive to the wedding at Ikeja and hoped that my male friends would be able to help with the car.

To the glory of God, I made it safely to the wedding and just as I hoped, I was able to get help.

My second event went well. There were lots of food vendors who had interesting packaging and design of naija meals. Unfortunately I couldn't get enough pictures.
