I went to the "Soul Bird" concert last night...hehehe...
I got there late cos I parked far away and had to leg it to the Performing Arts Center. I missed Yazzarah's performance but o well...I watched her sometime last month so, no biggie.
Laura Izibor had started performing as I casually looked for my seat. It was too dark so an attendant led me to the Orchestra section L-seat 115. (I will never forget that seat...lmao). As she was walking and getting soooo close to the stage, my smile got wider with each row I left behind, and finally I got to my seat, 12 rows from the stage...Lol. And to think I couldn't find tickets on Saturday night and finally got them 7 hours before the show. God is good!!! It cost me about 6 square meals but damn....It was over worth it. Laura is a beautiful singer and performer. He voice is madd and she's a joker too..lol.
KEM-He was next. I thought that dudes voice was annoying back in d daycos of the way he always said "gurrl" in an annoying high pitched voice, but surprisingly, I loved him too. I knew 3 of his songs sha, so I got to sing along a bit. He laced us with a couple of tracks off his unreleased album. Boy oh boy...Someone is in Love. Chei...His lyrics were deep mahn. And he took us to church too. Prayed for us, and blessed us. That was as good as church service for me...lol.
Yes,...and finally...INDIA ARIE. Yes, RocNaija...the real India...hehehehe.
India is the only artist that has got me to buy all her albums, (I kinda have all John Mayers albums too sha) so you know I had a blast losing my voice last night. My ears are still ringing and I woke up smiling...lol. It was great. She's a joker too. She messed up on one song and started skipping round her stage...lol. Hilarious.
Ahhh...all d songs were fantastic, but RIVER RISE (I'm sure I've mentioned that track b4), was different. I was touched, and she herself had to go off stage to recoup because she got emotional singing it. So apparently, all her songs are recounts of her life. She said that right before she performed "He Heals Me"...Hmmmm...I need to know a man like that for real. I teared up listening to that one. I dint cry o...just got all mushy and stuff.
When she performed "Yellow", she took off her orange outfit right there on stage (I thot India had lost it then o), and revealed her purple one which goes according to the song right when she says "together you and me are Purple". I thot that was kewl.
She laced us with some old tracks and then she brought her mama on stage to perform "God is Real" as a tribute to yesterday being Mothers day. He mother can sing boyyy...Damn. And she was bonz looking too with her long flowing Loc's. She performed "Pearls" an old track from Sade which she covered in her new album". Deep song m8.
The man I sat next to gave me his binoculars a few times. I could see all the freckles on her face and stuff...lol. And then she came into the crowd the whole time she performed "Theres Hope" from her Testimony 1: Life and Relationships album. I was too stunned to take a picture. She stood on chairs and everything... I was so close to her...lol. Groupie shock m8...lawl. She tried to make it upstairs but the song wasn't long enough so she just came back down. She's a great sport. She must have performed the first 13 songs off her Testimony 2 album.
And then as the audience started fading out, she came back to end the show with a prayer and Her final song "Ready for Love". Thats when I whipped out my phone and took 3 pictures. *shakes head* They are not clear at all, but you'll get the picture..(Get it??..Get d picture???...lol).
Alright y'all this is to you and yours, and I'm signing out with another very lovely song by India...story of my life..."Long Goodbye".

Anywhoooo...*sigh* I'm sure some ppl think I'm little Miss perfect and I don't have issues, but boy do I have my own problems. Like, the hell... I don't put my shit on others so why do they feel the need to do me such an unwanted favour...hiss...
So, only three people in my class are graduating on Saturday. I knew I wasn't going to graduate with my class cos of the devils sister that tried to get me depressed so I dint feel too bad until I found out a friend of mine was also not graduating because of his thesis. It's a longer story for him and his is even worse but..whatever...the annoying part is when people don't know how to shut up n try to rub it in your face. Na wa o.
I'm cleaning out my closet...not figuratively but literally. I've got too much junk mehn. So many clothes that have not seen the light of day since 2007. Definitely giving them out to good will. So many boxes too...sheesh. They are all going bye bye by the end of the week.
So what do rich folk do during their spare time? They go on flights to the edge of space...ZERO GRAVITY. So, i might do that in the future when i grow some balls...it seems a bit scary , u know.
My homeboy thinks Azure should set up shop. I totally agree u know, but I'm clueless on how to. I've read it up a few times on selling your products to big stores but mehn...it's a long tin.
Up MAN UTD!!!...hehehe. We're going all the way this season. God give us the support to win. May the soul of the Arsenal fan that killed himself after the ManU-Ars game rest in peace o...Which one now? Why so serious???
My new "friend" is a Chelsea fan...Gosh, can't I ever like boys that are Red devils?
India is performing in NC today..Somehow, I dint hear about this until last night. Tried to buy tickets but they're sold out :-( I'm so sad...It wasn't meant to be bah?...Bull sheit..I want a ticket NOW!!!
I have to make a call on Tuesday although I just feel the need to send a text and say i tried to call but no luck. I wonder when it came down to this *shakes head*...Watever.
Ok, going back to clean my room now. I was missing y'all so i decided to come say wussup so...WHAZZAAAPPP!!!!

..."If you gonna leave me, leave me. But Free me easy, Please Be... Gentle, Sentimental, pencil written notes essential, Preferential..."
Enough said...no more to say...I no fit talk.
I love the free therapy i get from blogging. It'd have been much berra if was anonymous sha...hehehe. That way I could ask questions like..."If people are evil and since they have spirits, those that make them evil spirits? If yea, then that means my uncles wife is an evil spirit???...LMAO!!!
My brother just said "Love you" to me...hmmmm...Pigs are definitely flying tonight boy. Or that knuckle head is getting old and emotional on me.
The new Az'ure designs are out. Thanks to my brilliant and supportive friends, i think this is the best sturvz i've done in my life.
Baba God has my back mehn. So my peeps was like, "Oi, go n find cribs for rent in the Queens town before we touch down. We'll be there for a week...and I was like "yea? Sure boss". So, For the past month, I've been dedicatedly looking for flats o. And I've pulled out all my dreadlocks because of it. No legit person rents out flats for a week apparently. On craigslist, Holiday rentals range from 150 GBP to 500GBP...PER NIGHT...hahahahaha...What a laugh. Then forget the yahoo yahoo guys that were telling me I have to do bank transfer....laff.
As in those guys are so dumb. Those fools are so lazy that they have the same wordings for all their emails. Peeps this o.
We are glad to inform you that the apartment is still available for the period you requested.
We offer it for £43 per night, all tax and utilities are included. We also charge a security deposit of £180
You requested for 28 nights and the total price including security deposit is £1,384
We do accept payment through Bank Transfer. Please do get back to us as soon as possible to reconfirm your interest so that we can send you our Terms and Condtions
Such an idiot...and then I had three other messages just like dat but with different email addys. *shakes head* this one must be an unsmart swindler.
I called all d agencys and asked if they had flats for a week and they wuz like, "Where u fink u are? We only do one month and over bruv" I said "ok now, one month please how mush...? They told me d price and I was weak....I refused to tell my parents I'd found a place. Chei...Can I just be a billionaire quick so I can understand what it's like to just say "Give me the best place you've got" instead of " Give me the cheapest price you've got"...lol. Anyway, $2 phone card later, my mum called to say a friend is giving them his keys so I can relax. Thank God sha, cos I would've been very upset if my father had to pay that much money when he can give it to me ;-)
Congratulations to me pleax...I wrote my last exam for the rest of my life today. I aced it sha. I missed one point cos I dint stick to my gut. I wrote Alzheimers disease instead of Antihypertensive disease. I knew it started with A but the 'anti' totally jeered me off...hissss. But yes o,...no more written exams EVER!!! I told popsie and he said "You still have to do PhD"....I was like Pardon???...Chill now boss. PhD ko, PhDizzy ni...Abegi jor.

It doesn't get easier neither does it get harder. It's just there. But I know you're at peace so it's all good. But damn, I miss you. I wish you were here...So if you're really watching from up there...Smile babes cos I'm alright. And as I promised, you'll never be forgotten my dear friend. Happy Birthday Deolu :-)
***You're either in it for Love or Comfort***
If it's the former, there'll be lots of trials.
Hopefully it's strong enough to see us through.
If it's comfort, then don't expect to be loved
When you change your mind, it'll be too late.
I'll be gone.
Choose wisely...For Love or Materialism.
I choose Love...
...sometimes, we get both, end up fufilled.
If life gets to you, don't let it get you.
Forget the times ahead, Live for the moment
But at the moment your living for the future.
Unsure of tomorrow, you wreck our present.
Never take the ones that love you for granted.
That last straw might wreck your maybe ever after.
Don't take me too seriously.
I am an easy solve....just accept me.
I'm an easy love but a hard forgive.
I'm learning to be understanding in silence...
from a distance, fighting the resistance...
Simply put..I need you to know that I care...I miss you.
