MTV Africa Awards 2008 Pics and Videos.

Hello everyone,
If you've checked out the blog recently,you will remember when I said that the first ever MTV Africa awards would be taking place in lagos ,nigeria two weeks ago ,and I have exclusive pics of the awards and video.
I liked the opening of the show with the flags and all.Stars in attendance included D'Banj,Asa,Psquare(who performed),Naeto C,and american singers Florida ,Kelly Rowland and the Game (who performed).So ofcourse almost every award was won by a nigerian artist and the only other countries mentioned where Kenya and SA.
Do you think it was a good effort for the first MTV Africa Awards?Let me knw your thoughts!
Here's a list of who won what.
* D’banj (Nigeria): Artist of the year award and the Best Male Award.
* Naeto C (Nigeria): Best New Act.
* 9ice (Nigeria): Best Hip-hop Award.
* Wahu (Kenya): Best Female Artist.
* P-Square (Nigeria): Best Group.
* Jozi (South Africa) Best Live Performers.
* Ikechuku - Wind am well (Nigeria): Best Video.
* Late Fela Kuti (Nigeria): The Legend Gong Award.
* Seether (South Africa): Best Alternative Group.
According to some bloggers who attended,the event was awful..check out what they had to say

Big Brother Africa 3 has a winner!/Past BBA housemate get's hitched!

When BBA 3 started airing ,I was intending to post up daily videos on this blog abt what the housemates were up to and all the drama that would happen.Too bad the show was too dry it was almost painful to watch.After the first one and a half weeks ,I was like "nah" and i never watched any more.I got updates from my friends who did watch it.

So apparently,the show ended about 2 weeks ago and Angolan housemate Ricco won.He was up against Hazel from Malawi.I guess he was pretty entertaining ...I mean the most entertaining should win right?
For a video interview of him,click here

And in other Big Brother Africa news,Big Brother Africa's first winner ,Zambian Cherise "Tumba" Makubale recently got married to some british guy who proposed to her in Venice.Wow!

Naija twins Psquare celebrate their bday!

This post is for the ladies who are in love or in "lust" with these Nigerian twins Psquare.On Nov 18th,the "Roll It" singers celebrated their bday at K's Place in Lagos Nigeria .And because I am so sweet,I decided to share the pics with all of you guys.I could have kept the pics for myself,but I'm in a "better mood" today.The twins performed at the MTV Africa awards as well and took home an award.Pics are courtesey of
So,don't you wish you were there?
Note to all the ladies that are grateful for the pics:I will accept all gifts/ drooling ladies!(Click on the pics to make them larger).
One last thing .I'm boiling with jealousy at that chick who got to be thisclose to them.(Sigh). But then gain,I like the other one better.
Here's a video of them performing at the Channel O music awards.

The Randomness:2010 World Cup Mascot revealed and Iman before/After.

I decided to put up two "The Randomness " posts in one today .Okay,so the mascot for the 2010 soccer world cup in SA (see you there) has been out for a while(since late september),but i don't think many people who are not living in Africa heard about it.So here he is.His name is Zakumi.The "Za" is taken from the afrikaans way of saying "South Africa",and apparently "Kumi" means ten (2010,get it?) in a number of african languages.So what so you think?Is he a good mascot?And what exactly is he?a leopard?or a cheetah?I'm trying to figure that out. I don't know what I think ..mascots are kind of freaky to me .Hmm..

Oh and secondly,I recently found these pics comparing how Iman looked when she was just discovered ,and how she looks now.Very different!That's an understatement actually.What do you think?I guess money makes you look..different?Ne way,I just watched a special on her on BETJ .It was very interesting.So what do you think about the change?

Who should Fire their Stylist? feat Liya Kebede.

Okay everyone,for this segment of "Who should fire their stylist?",we have the lovely Ethiopian model Liya Kebede(click image to make it larger) .She was allowed to step out of her house in this outfit?So,what's wrong with it?It's all black,which is borring,and it looks like she borrowed from someone 3 sizes bigger than her.I have to say that it's better than what estelle seems 2 wear when she has her what-not-to-wear-moments.Or maybe I'm not feeling that mean today.Or maybe because she's a supermodel she can get away with it.So what do you think?Does her stylist need 2 get fired?By the way,this was at the cdfa fashion event.Don't ask me what those words stand for.

Spotted:!Liya /Charlize

Charlize Theron was at the United Nations in NY to receive her nomination as global ambassador .
Liya Kebede was at the annual Russel Simmons empowerment fund event ,as well as the cdfa fashion event.

Oh No They Didn't! Souija Boy said what about AFRICA?

Here is the first installment of my new series "Oh No They Didn't".It will feature celebs who should be ashamed of themselves for saying negative and un-true things about our continent.
For this one,we have Souija boy.He was recently interviewed by a reporter from BET and he was asked "which historical figure he hated most" and these are his words
"Oh wait! Hold up! Shout out to the slave masters! Without them we’d still be in Africa.”

And that's not all ..he then proceeded to say ,
We wouldn’t be here, get this ice and tattoos.”

Wow.Someone needs to be educated.Beyond that,I don't even know what to say.I'm tired of the ignorance.
