Exit Grammyz Enter Oscarz

As trivial as this may seem, the naija bloggers awards have gone & done it, Baroque was nominated for three (3) awards…guys, I thought you could do better…(just kidding)…LOL…I am so excited, that I can’t stop blushing (it’s not that bad abeg, hahaha)…it is just thrilling that I am acknowledged by the congress on matters that I did not quite work towards…anyway, if I get the golden plaque, I will smelt it and make pendants & bracelets for all my voters…LMFAO...nevertheless though, I say a big thank you to all of you, especially that initiators of the NBA 2009…not just Toluwa, the smiling scorpion’s Sting & the faceless NaijaGirl…3 gbozaz (one per person) to y’all.


I was going to do a post on the wrongs done to our dear English language...I just didn’t want to over flog the dead horses on radio, I’d rather rub Planta on my Oxford sweetened cabin biscuit & drink Lipton yellow label tea.


Fellow Nigerians (nothing aggressively patriotic or slightly xenophobic meant)…if you have about 25minutes, watch this video; http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=obasanjo+hard+talk&emb=0&aq=f#

I happened to mistakenly stumble across that hardtalk interview last night on BBC, and though i couldn't bear to sit through all of it, still left me thinking....was this really our leader for 8 yrs?

I can not believe D. Obasanjo said that he has total confidence in the system....Is he serious? But the again, am glad he admitted to the likeliness of being biased!

~Toluwwz, it was quite clear that Obj has no sense...but that presenter guy should have gotten a left hook for desperately trying to do Baba public disgrace
