Lessons Hollywood Can Learn From Nollywood


Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of watching the Golden Globe Awards. While I enjoy watching almost most awards of this kind, I usually do not get to watch the red carpet. They’re just going to tell me what they are wearing, and since I cannot afford them yet, what does it matter? But this time, I sat in front of my television at 6pm, searched for Channel E, and enjoyed the red carpet. From the red carpet to the actual award show, I could not help but notice some differences between Continue Reading

Who Are You Rooting For?

My ladies: Tina Fey & Amy Poehler, hosts of this year's Golden Globe Awards

The Golden Globe Awards is coming up this Sunday, and I am quite excited! Igwe is more of a Grammy Awards person, while I’m more of a Golden Globe Awards, Emmy Awards, and of course, Oscar Awards type of person. That’s where all the fun stuff is. I think this is the first time I have watched quite a number of the nominated movies. And I am doubly excited that funny ladies, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting. It'll be live on Sunday, January 13th 2012 at 8pm Eastern Time on Continue Reading

The BET Awards: My Two Favorite Dresses … And The Real Power Couple

Rocsi Diaz at the 2012 BET Awards

So Sunday night was BET Awards.  Honestly, prior to Igwe, I was not much of an awards-watching person. I would usually just catch the highlights the next day, but lately, I've been watching and enjoying them - even the red carpet! I guess I'm evolving. I'll try my best to keep this post short. There were two dresses that I instantly fell in love with: Rocsi Diaz, host of 106 & Park When I saw Rocsi interviewing people in this dress (whose maker I do not know), I completely stopped Continue Reading

Blogger I’d Most Like To Meet: Vera

Lemme rewind to that moment.I started this blog in January 2006, and at that time, I knew only one other Naija blogger. She has since stopped blogging. I don't even remember her name and/or her blog.

I met a lotta bloggers too (virtually, that is).Anyway, TaureanMinx (who has disappeared off the face of Blogville along with many Continue Reading
