Face of West African Fashion Week...

He called me on the phone today and said 'I'm just calling to say something to you'
'What?' I asked
He said 'You're a lovely person Linda, I just called to tell you that. I gotta run, speak to you later'
He hung up
I stood where I was grinning from ear to ear...

I've been called a lot names and described in many ways but this was different. I've heard you're nice, unassuming, down to earth, super cool... You're a bitch... yes I've heard that ;) but I don't remember ever being called or described as lovely. There's something so sincere and sweet about it.

Lovely Linda...hmmm, I like it!
09 will be such a great year for me...and for you. Yes YOU. I'm talking to you, God will bless you so much this year it will bring tears to your eyes...Whether you're a lovely person or not ;)

Speaking of lovely people, here's one lady I think is incredibly lovely, actress Rita Dominic.

Before I got to know her I thought she was probably one of those stuck up famous ladies, but she blew me away with her simplicity and down to earth nature. I went to a Xmas party (The only party I attended this Xmas...lol) she hosted a few days ago at her house and I had an incredible time hanging out with her and her friends. She's courteous, nice and has absolutely no airs about her. A really lovely lady.

Another Lady that's after my heart is Emem Ema of former hot group KUSH.

I'm a fairly nice person but Emem showed me a side to being nice that I haven't seen in a bit. Spoke to her a few days ago and was blown away by her humility and how much she appreciates people. Emem, also known as Mem'O has a hit single GREENLIGHT that's blazing hot. Y'all need to check it out.

OK, to the koko of the day...
I told y'all about the Face of West African Fashion Week contest that took place a few weeks back. Frank Osodi, the top designer behind the event was looking for the 1st West African Fashion Week Model, who will win a N1million contract to feature in all the West Africa Fashion Week advert material.

A lot of models entered for the competition but only six girls were picked and on the 14th of Dec, a modeling contest held and a winner emerged.
But the thing is, some people didn't agree with judge's choice. I did but some people didn't...

Below are the pictures of the top six finalists. What I want you to do is look at all the girls and tell me who you think should have won, or who you think best represents West Africa...


1. Tamara


2. Taka


3. Ruth



4. Rebecca


5. Keme


6. Jennifer

And here they are together...
The six finalists of the Face West African's Fashion Week

And here they are with designer Frank Osodi, Make-up artist Divine Looks and the CEO of Make Me Salon...
So, who deserved to win. Pick a model and tell us why...

Meanwhile, here are the pictures from the Face of West African Fashion Week Contest. I was there but no picture of me was taken...poor me ;)
Enjoy...

The war...
We might be partying and having fun in other parts of the world but it's not a happy new year for some people in the Middle East. They are currently living in a state of terror, no lights, water, food or safety. Rip to the over 500 people who have died in the week-old unneccesary Israeli/Palentinian war. At a time like this, all we can do is call on God to intervene. Pls pray for them.
Thought of the day
If you change your thinking, you can change your life. This is a new year, change has to come

Let us know what you think about the girls...

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
