No, my blog hasn’t become a gossip site. 😀 This is a very uncharacteristic post, but I just had to do it! Someone put up a post about his wedding on Facebook and something caught my eye. Continue reading “OC Ukeje gets married and destroys a myth!”
“You can be bitter, or you can better.”
The first time I came across Alex Boye’s (Boh-yay) work was when I watched his cover of the popular song from Frozen – Let It Go (watch here). It was pretty captivating, but I didn’t really notice him, I was mostly taken by the young female lead, and I forgot about him. That was until I came across The Piano Guys cover of Coldplay’s Paradise (watch Peponi) – which I absolutely love. Now, The Piano Guys… That’s a story for another day (just know I think they’re great!).
Anyway, back to Mr Boye. Continue reading “Make Lemonade!”
Yup, I started another blog… I do music posts on The Perfect Life once in a while but I started getting a lot of ideas for music posts and I didn’t want to make the blog completely music-oriented. So, I started a new one just for music! Please drop by and check it out here. Enjoy! xoxo Continue reading Check out my music blog!

Francine Rivers writes a book, I buy it. That’s the way it goes. No questions asked, no thinking twice, I barely glance at the synopsis, I just buy it. I believe she’s one of the greatest authors to have lived on this planet (If you’ve come across my review of A Voice in the Wind you probably already know how much I love the woman). So, you can be sure soon after I heard about her latest book – Bridge to Haven – I was clicking ‘buy now’ on the Kindle Store. Read my review
If you have already seen my Music Haul post, you will know how much I love Jonathan McReynolds’ music. Life music, his debut album, (which I heard for the first time last month) is the best album I have heard in my life so far. The idea to do this video struck me one random day, and I filmed and sang it bits. I wanted … Continue reading Life Music Montage
I’m using a popular blogger term for one of my biggest discoveries this year (I know the year is early yet; and if you already know him l know I’m a bit stale): JONATHAN McREYNOLDS http://www.jonathanmcreynolds.com/ It’s a haul because after I stumbled upon two of his videos on YouTube, you can believe I went on my phone and bought (in case you missed the … Continue reading Music “Haul”!!!
So, my music love well-established, I’ve decided to do something to create some. This song started playing in head- Jesus I love You (I think most Nigerians should know it, it’s very catchy anyway). And along with its constant repeat in my brain, some interesting harmonies came. I put them together, and this is my first foray (well, not first first, just the first I … Continue reading First Foray
This is just one of many creations put together by my good friend, Oluwafemi “aka Drummerboi aka BlasTphemie” Onafowokan (he’s a music genius- and I wasn’t paid to write that ;-)). Was listening to some of my music -it’s been a while-, heard this and wanted to share. First, I love the bass (as I have already established, I’m a bass lover ;-)). Second, the … Continue reading Sublime Instrumental
Recently, I’ve been making an attempt to reread books I once thought were great (books I read about 10 years ago), and trying to analyse how I feel about them now that I am ‘mature’ (so to speak). It’s turned out to be a great way to appraise and appreciate how I’ve changed over the years. Interestingly, quite a few of the books have been … Continue reading Francine and A Voice
So, yes I’m a bit stale when it comes to new music, despite my self-awarded music-lover status. I only heard of them a few weeks ago. I got an email from a certain blog ( I will put the link below) about their Christmas song. The blogger put in a second video of them, and that’s what really caught me. To be honest, it’s their … Continue reading Pentatonixxxxx!
