Being quite the nollywood enthusiast, I am looking forward to this film Ije. I hope it does not disappoint. Genevieve Nnaji, whom I think is very talented actress with lots of potential and Omotola Jolade Ekehinde, a nollywood veteran both star in this film. Hopefully through this film, they both get the exposure that they need.
Once it is out, I hope I will be able to lay my hands on an original dvd set, instead of a bootleg copy or from youtube ( you know the temptation can be great at times), because I really want to support this project. Hopefully we´ll see.
You can get the film´s synopsis at Jaguda.com.

Oba Adele II of Lagos with Cardinal J.F McIntyre Lagos, Nigeria 1954
Sisi Eko jamming to music c.a1950s/60s Lagos, Nigeria
Olubumi Jibowi presenting flowers to Queen Elisabeth Lagos, Nigeria 1956.
I love this blog and since I love photography it gets a thumps up from me. The happy lagosians blog features lagos, its people and projects going on in the city. But I especially love the vintage photography about lagos life in the 50s and 60s. For more click on the link above.

Ex-model and FGM activist Waris Dirie´s new film Desert Flower is out. The film, which stars Liya Kedebe is based on her book(her autobiography) with the same name. I have read the book and I found it quite intriguing. I am not sure when it will be coming out in theatres here. I guess I will be on the watch out for it anyway and you should be too.
Above is the trailer for the film...Love it.

I would advice all nigerians and friends of Nigeria to join this passionate cause. Let our voices be heard. The nolight situation in Nigeria must come to an end. Enough is Enough. I would have loved to write an epistle on the effect of the lack of electricity in Nigeria but I think many other bloggers and twitterers have already done that. You can join here at facebook or twitter.
I would love to read these two books once I get a chance. Now we all know the author of the first book, The thing around your neck, our very own Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The author of the second book Dead Aid is somewhat new on the scene. She is Dambisa Moyo, a harvard educated economist. From the reviews so far I can´t wait to lay my hands on this book.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

I called my grandma yesterday. It was really sweet hearing her voice since we don't talk too often , because of distance and we all know how the networks are in very small towns sometimes. She went down the usual terrain of talk.
"Joicee, don't follow people. Don't keep bad company, be like your mother, she finished her schooling, got married and had you people"
I love her.
It got me thinking though, will my mother be able to say the same about me to my children in the future. I hope so.
There was fabulous report on the nigerian music industry on CNN's Inside Africa, something positve and inspiring at last, goodness knows it is about time.
Psquare!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! im screaming.....they are both gorgeous.
Enjoy.....and have a fulfilled week.
