Well, if u know me well, u'll know that i am a total bag junkie...as in i looooove bags, clutches, wallets, purses...well u get the drift and that brings me to this uber-cool chic and her handbags et al.

Nneka Hurley

She is a 28 year old graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University and recent student at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She currently resides in New Jersey and she started ‘Nneka Hurley Handbags‘ in 2005.

Well, i dont know for sure if she is from Nigeria or even of Nigerian Descent but from her name, i will conclude that she is and if she aint...who cares..ha bags are FAB!

Nneka recently (last weekend) showcased bags from her Spring Collection titled "Arm Candy". and below are some of the collection!

Hu-ASA,Banky W, X-project,Chikezie

Hey hey guys, hows ur week goin?
This year is running fast! Febuary is gone already, mane where is the year goin????
Damn! this is how old age creeps on pple!

The actress was a victim of a robbery sometime last week!
Narrating how the incident happened, Uche said, “ I don’t understand o. I drove into my compound and the next thing I saw were some people who pointed gun at my head and ordered me out. We were coming back from Abuja where we went to do a movie. They made away with the car and every other thing inside it.

It was as if I was the target. The robbery started and ended with me. Nobody else was attacked. People say maybe the robbers were sent, but who am I? Why would somebody want to attack ordinary Uche? It is still shocking but I am gradually getting over the incident.”

The Real me show:
A new Television Reality show known as ‘Real me show’ is about to debut Nigeria soon.The show aims at portraying the real lives of Nollywood stars and gives the viewing public the opportunity to see how these stars live behind the screen for 21 days. Sounds like a celebrity Big Brother to me...
The runner up would be entitled to a sum of N2 million, while the star prize winner would walk away with N10 million and a brand new SUV Jeep to go with it.

As released to the press in Naij, stars to feature in this programme includes Genevieve Nnaji, Stella Damasus, Uche Jumbo, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Emeka Ike, Ramsey Noah and a host of others
However i think the names of the celebrities are just bin used as a stint to gather publicity cos Stella Damasus is sure not happy about it and she had this to say
''I was shocked to have read it in the papers that I would be part of a certain Real Me Show put together by one Chidi Nwokeabia. Honestly, I stand to be corrected if I am wrong, I think before a thing like this comes up, the characters involved should be notified or informed first before going out publicizing the show. I have not been contacted for any show of that nature and seeing my name in the list of participants baffled me. Things have to be done the way it should be done; nobody can just wake up and put me in a show I know nothing about. The industry really needs to be sanitised thoroughly”

X Project ft Konga: Lori Ile
Remember the Tumba guys??

mane i cant lie,i just so love the beat and it makes me wanna move...my legs, my hands, my head...somewhere sha..lol

WEEKEND DIGEST:Ikechukwu, D'banj,wind am well) Wande coal et al

Hey Guys,

Know this is late,but compliments of the season ya'll!!! Lyk a bad dream, the original blog got caught in some Blogger technical ish, so we got this one instead! Hopefully, word will get round and people will get to know of this one, so pls if u can...spread the word and spread the love...lol!
So yeah, back to basics...

New Video Alert!!!
Wind Am Well - Ikechukwu Feat. Don Jazzy & D'Banj

Dang! This video just got put up today, see how much we love you guys!!! Awwww, D'banj! i like!

Random News Of The Day:
Scholarship Awards for Virgin Girls!
Okay, this has gotta be one of the funniest articles i'v come across in ages as in 4 real...I was just doing the regular reading about naija affairs wen i saw this headline...Scholarship Awards for Virgin Girls! It is quite long so I have cut it down, but to read it in full, click HERE

Below are just some quotes from the article:

"Girls who have not lost their virginity are to be given scholarships up to university level. It has become extremely difficult to find young women and girls who are virgins in a society with poor moral values and unbridled promiscuity. Seeking to find some kind of solution to what has been termed “a moral question,” Madam Adunni Adediran, CEO/Editor-in-Chief, Fragile Feet Magazine, says
“But alas, it is time we rekindle and rediscover the old spiritual injunction, African culture and values where young and old spinsters are expected to keep their bodies sacrosanct for their would-be spouses.A culture where virginity is seen as a pride and celebrated with funfare on the eve of wedding."

According to her, it is a shame to both the lady and her parents, if it were discovered that she had been deflowered before the wedding night. All virgin girls are expected at the celebration in Ekemode Memorial Hospital and Women’s Infirmary, 3B, Bode Thomas Road, Surulere, Lagos, on 24th January, 2008 at 10 a.m. Rewards include scholarships for deserving virgin girls, certificates of virtue, and other gifts including gold jewelries, visit to interesting places.Other benefits are availability of young bachelors who would desire them because of the purity, and to stop vices such as sex before marriage, ”To be eligible to participate, females between the ages of 15 to 30 years or over and are still pure without a canal knowledge of any man are to pay a token fee of N2,000 at any Oceanic Bank.

But if a girl is being disvirgined by her husband, it’s a pride for the family, and respect for the family members.”Adediran disclosed the name of the NGO promoting this project as “Just For You Media,” and that certificate of virtue will be issued for successful participants.

As in seriously, WTF a certificate of virtue??????!!! if someone shld use the word DEFLOWERED one more time i will seriously go crazy...i dnt know, maybe im just the only one who actually finds it funny or i just have a weird sense of humour..lol, But i wonder how they r goin to get the proof that these girls are virgins..infact i will find it rather humiliating, what happened to giving scholarships to students who deserve it cos of their grades et al? and im sorry, i just like to face reality...we r talkin bout a country where some mothers want the bride to be pregnant b4 marriage to show they r not barren b4 dey marry their sons...oh well, and yes they are serious about the virgins ages 30! pHEEEW!

And on a sidenote, Dayo from NaijaSounds & Naija-Times sent this link over NaijaTimesMagazine . Check out Pg 3 for a NaijaVixen Big-up ;-)

Amplyfyd Crew -- Wetin Man Go Do:

Hmmm effizzy...I cant SHOUT! I can't even whisper...btw, i was just wondering what happened to the girl in the group...cos i didnt peep ha there...oh well,lol!!!

SauceKid-Yebariba RMX:


Snake GIRL:
Nokulunga Buthelezi, is an amazing contortionist that has been wowing everyone she appeared on a UK morning show like 2weeks ago. The 18 year old Nokulunga comes from South Africa and mane some things u r born with...this is one of those talents!

This dude ryt here, pushed himself thru a TENNIS RACKET!!



Few weeks after the release of their anticipated album, CV, Mo Hits Records are set to shoot the video of “Ololufe” by Wande Coal. A traveling date has not been fixed yet but according to a source, the video will be shot in film format by DJ Tee in South Africa and edited in Nigeria . The project we gathered, will also serve as a medium to sell ‘Wande Coal’ as an artiste whose debut album may be dropping before the end of this year from Mo Hits...We ♥ us Wande Coal, but i just hope that the video does the song justice sha!!!

2Face Idibia recently recorded a track titled “So Proud” featuring Jamaican stars Chakka Demus and Pliers in California and you guys can expect to hear it on the airwaves soon. 2Face has recorded some songs for his next album which is still untitled but expected to drop later this year.

And thats it for today, many thanks people, have yourselves a great weekend!
