Happy New Year!


In 2009, you all will experience miracles...
Whether you believe in miracles or not...
Whether you think you deserve it or not...
Whether you asked for it or not...
It will happen to you...
Just make sure you reach out and claim it when it comes...

And please tell those who can't see any good in you to hold on
Tell your critics to please stay tuned
Tell your admirers they aint seen nothing yet
Because in 09, not only will you break barriers
You will succeed beyond your wildest imagination
It is your time to soar...

May the best of 08 be the worst of 09 for you all
Happy New Year

Kini Big Deal No1? + Calabar Xmas Carnival + Ovation Red Carol Night

Hi everyone, hope y'all are really enjoying this holiday season. I'm good. Been meeting some really great people, making new friends, hanging out...Not so boring anymore ;)


I've also been watching a lot of TV and noticed that most Music TV programmes and stations, from Chanel O, to MTV Base and some of our local Music TV programmes seem to agree that Naeto C's 'Kini Big Deal' is Africa/Nigeria's number one song of 08.
I love the song to bits but no1?
Here's my top 5 of 08
1. Dbanj - Suddenly
2. P-Square - No one like you
3. OJB - Pum pum
4. Soty - Malaria
5. Naeto C - Kini Big Deal
I also love 'Konikoni love' by Klever Jay...if you haven't heard that song, you need to check it out. Really nice.
Do you guys agree that Kini big deal is Nigeria's no1 song of 08?
If you don't agree then what's your no1?
Share your thoughts...

Meanwhile remember I told you all that Calabar is the place to be this Christmas? Well check out pictures from the Calabar Xmas Carnival
Seemed really fun...
Enjoy...
