Living Single + Rhythm Unplugged and Zain Dynamix Youths Award

Hi people, hope y'all are having an incredible time. I'm having a swell time shacking up with friends on the Island. My older sis has this flat on the Island that I usually take over by this time of the year, 'cos she likes to spend her Christmas abroad. Been here since Wednesday, kinda stopped working from the office. My guys come over here to talk to me about work and stuff and my mum has been calling my phone non stop, come home she says, come home and do what? Island sweet pass Surulere, leave me alone abeg...lol

So here's what I want us to talk about today. Is it OK for a single girl to LIVE ALONE? Is there anything wrong with it? Especially when your parents live in the same city? Some people have been encouraging me to rent my own flat and move out of my parents house. I've totally refused and I'm adamant about it...I want to go from my father's house to my husband's house, living alone is not something that I've ever considered, I doubt if I'll ever do it but there are lots of girls doing it. Is there anything wrong with it?
Pls share your thoughts.

Also, I got an email from someone asking how much it will cost for her to put stuff on my blog...HOW MUCH??? Ok here it is, I don't charge a dime. This is a social utility site and not a money making venture. I do this 'cos I enjoy it, it's not my day job lol, so if there's anything you want to share with other readers of this blog, just email it to me...I'll upload it with all pleasure and no charge to you...

Ok, check out pictures from the recently held Rhythm Unplugged show. I promised a few friends that I was going to go with them to this show, but when it came time to go....well, I have to do something about my lack of interest in going to social events...even weddings, and birthdays, and ...oh, I'm such a sad person...lol

Enough writing, enjoy the pix...

From that to another event that took place last weekend. The Zain Dynamix Awards

The Kokomaster himself.
From that to something a little sad...I don't want to believe it but the story making the rounds now have it that Janet and JD have called it quits.
Read the story below...

Janet Jackson has split up with her long-term record producer boyfriend Jermaine Dupri, according to tabloid reports.
The couple has been an item for four years, and was only recently rumored to be planning to marry and start a family together.
However the National Enquirer claims Jackson and Dupri began battling over the failure of her recent tour, which he managed, and which ended with a string of canceled concerts because of illness and reports of poor ticket sales.
And sources tell the tabloid the 36-year-old has moved out of the superstar’s Los Angeles home, and they have agreed to spend time apart. The insider says, “Janet and Jermaine finally hit a wall. They were fighting over his management of her career. In the end, she decided to make a break.”
Representatives for the two have yet to comment on the reports.
Hopefully it's not true...
MTV Man of the Year

Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. is no longer just your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper. In fact, considering the way he’s been carrying around a guitar lately, you could be forgiven for wondering if he event wants to be a rapper anymore. But the fact remains that for 12 long months, no one dominated hip-hop like Wayne did. No one sold more records, generated more headlines or appeared on as many tracks. No one flooded the market with as much product, and — in a genre loaded with compelling characters — no one was as mercurial, controversial, hilarious and, well, bizarre as Weezy was.
I concur.

Tuface's new album

His new album is now in stores, go grab your own copy

Madonna...without make-up
Not bad...only now I believe she's 50...lol

Thought of the day
To wish you were someone else is to waste the person you are.
Waiting for your opinion on LIVING SINGLE...
See y'all in a bit.
Have a ball!
