It's A LifeStyle, Get With It!!!

WEEKEND DIGEST:

Hey wots up guys, deres really nain much happenin in d naija scene ryt now that we can blog about, so this post is/myt be really short! :-( lol anyhoo here it goes...

NEWS CORNER:
A female legislator was for the first time in Nigeria's political history, made the Speaker of the House of Representatives.Mrs Patricia Olubunmi Etteh 54 years old(PDP, Osun) was unanimously elected Speaker shortly after inauguration of the House.Speaker Etteh is to be assisted by 35-year-old Babangida Nguroje (PDP, Taraba) who was also elected unanimously as deputy speaker.

What a fantastic year it has been for our very own Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie! She won the prestigious "Britain's Orange Prize for Fiction by Women" therefore becoming the first African and the youngest author to take the award in its 12-year history!

Chimamanda won the prize for "Half of a Yellow Sun," which is a book set during the Nigeria-Biafra conflict of the 1960s.While collecting the award at the London ceremony she said, "I can only tell you how profoundly happy I am,now I have to go and make a phone call to Nigeria". She gets the $60,000 prize which is awarded for a novel by a woman published in English. "Yellow Sun" was also a finalist earlier this year for the National Book Critics Circle fiction prize.

"Probing season" has started! Three former governors (James Ibori-Delta state,Jolly Nyame-Taraba state & Peter Odili-Rivers state) were made to appear before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) investigative panel which is investigating how the former governors handled public funds in their respective states during their tenures, on Wednesday.


Comedy Corner:
I cant stress enough that Youtube is the very ish! What do you get when you put a guy singing bout missing SUYA the very way MALLAM will make it and a microphone? Pure comedy...you couldnt make this stuff up!!!

..."If heaven to you means nothing but suya making mallams...then this right up your street"
WARNING---This video is liable to induce bouts of homesickness and pitiful cries of "I miss mallam on Awolowo Av."....LOL!


BLOGVILLE IDOLS!!!:
For those of us still finding it hard to come off the West African Idols high... There is this new "show" in town,well BloGville to be precise...lol from the stables or should i say minds of Pink-Satin & 9ja-Opeke ...It's Blogville Idols!!!

Hey Judge,The contestants have sang so please go to the page and listen to them on d voice player ..Since all the contestants have sang already u cannot comment on them after each of their performances..so you probably have to listen to all of them b4 passing ur judgement...we advice you to have a piece of paper and pen and jot down ur observation on each contestant and then you record it after all the performances...Tanx ...pls as soon as u get this message pls pls go and pass ur judgement IMMEDIATELY...we rely on u to be fast paced so we can get the voters to listen your judgement and performance and start voting.As judges you are allowed to vote too..pls bear in mind that the contestant on this session are singing songs of their choice so u can use that to judge them(e.g the song u choose wasnt suitable for u..blah blah)...Tanx for your time and your efforts...PINKPEKE PRODUCTION
