Celebrity Takes 2 week 3

First things first. In this i cant be unbiased. I got a problem with one of the judges. Dayo Laidi!! I know he is supposed to have his own dance company and has been in the business of dance for 21 years blah blah blah. That doesn't mean he knows what he is saying. Imagine putting Pasuma over Omowunmi Akinnifesi. I was mad as a hatter so i did some tuning out. Anyways i didn't grab the whole show but i must have watched the best parts (see me consoling my self). This week was a big improvement in the whole competition so below are my comments. (They are ranked according to my favorites).

The babe must have thought she was Beyonce. She could have been right. lol!! It was like being in a 'Niger' club and seeing those babes you dare not dance near in case they make you look bad. She could be a winner. Dayo better change his tune on this babe or he will have enemies.
Judges Score - 21

My babe daddy!! (I wish). The boy looked good and sharp. Very impressive. I don't know if it is him or he just has a wonderful partner. Either way he executed a dance to dismissed (by Zoegirl) perfectly.
Judges Score - 23

I have been down playing this dude and that just ain't right. He has been consistently good so lets give him a thumbs up people. He did a good salsa number and me likes!!
Judges Score - 23

Her entrance with her leading in her partner on a chain like a dog was dramatic. The dance routine that followed was not as great. But good effort though. She ain't a dancer so we give an A for effort.
Judges Score - 19

Did a dance to one of the lion king soundtracks. Too much acting and not enough dance content. But her costume (cat suit complete with whiskers) was wicked. Her website is off the hook. Click on her name to go there.
Judges Score - 20

I have nothing against this dude personally but i feel this week he failed. He danced to Ayefele. People that is his element but dude was moving like an AJEBUTTER. Damn what happen!!!! I was mad disappointed but the judges must have seen something i didn't cause he got top marks.
Judges Score - 23

I do apologise that the gist is not complete. Sorry but i missed Kunle Afolayan, Zizi Cardow, Nomoreless and Tara Durotoye. Voting has started though so someone will be going off soon.

I went to church today and the visiting preacher made me think about something i don't really dwell on. JEALOUSY. It was funny to see jealousy in the bible.
See there was this priest called Asaph who wrote the 73rd psalm and the guy had a problem with jealousy and he blogged about it (in the Bible of all places)!!

You could read the whole psalm here but these are just the verses that i focused on.

1-5 God is truly good to Israel, especially to everyone with a pure heart. But I almost stumbled and fell, because it made me jealous to see proud and evil people and to watch them prosper. They never have to suffer, they stay healthy, and they don't have troubles like everyone else.

13-14 What good did it do me to keep my thoughts pure and refuse to do wrong? I am sick all day, and I am punished each morning.
17 Then I went to your temple, and there I understood.

See this priest had a problem with seeing people who didn't believe in God at all prospering while he suffered. He felt cheated. Then he went to the temple and a wave of understanding hit him. It is not about how blessed we are on earth but what happens after we leave this place.

Not everyone believes in God or the hereafter but Nicole Nordemen (above) put it brilliantly in her song 'What if'?
She said
What if you're right?
And he was just another nice guy
What if you're right?
What if it's true?
They say the cross will only make a fool of you
And what if it's true?
What if he takes his place in history

With all the prophets and the kings
Who taught us love and came in peace
But then the story ends
What then?

But what if you're wrong?
What if there's more?
What if there's hope you never dreamed of hoping for?..........

Well basically she was trying to say some people don't believe in God and they may be right BUT what if they are wrong and they find out too late.
What if this 'rapture of the saints' is really true.
What if you have basically lived your life in a true way and kept yourself pure like Asaph and something small made you miss it. A little lie, a short session of masturbation, cheating, bullying,......................................the list doesn't end.
I think the best way to live is to do so like that minute will be your last. Live life to the full but be constantly aware of what goes on after life is over. Trivial stuff like jealousy wont be such a problem then.

Wow cant believe i finished that. How was that for my first ever blog sermon. lol!!

I got this poem by Dr. MAYA ANGELOU (Left). I think it is cool. Have fun peeps!! You may not relate to it all but to some. Even guys can find something in here to relate to i think. This is a bank holiday weekend so i might just update on Monday. I am so happy i get Monday off. Those who have to work eat your heart out. lol!!

enough money within her control to move out
and rent a place of her own,
even if she never wants to or needs to...

something perfect to wear if the employer,
or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour...

a youth she's content to leave behind....

a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to
retelling it in her old age....

a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra...

one friend who always makes her laugh...
and one who lets her cry...

a good piece of furniture not previously owned
by anyone else in her family...

eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems,
and a recipe for a meal that will make her guests feel honored...

a feeling of control over her destiny...

how to fall in love without losing herself...

how to quit a job,
break up with a lover,
and confront a friend without ruining the friendship...

when to try harder...
and when to walk away...
that she can't change the length of her calves,
the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents..

that her childhood may not have been perfect, but it's over...

what she would and wouldn't do for love or more...

how to live alone...
even if she doesn't like it...

whom she can trust,
whom she can't,
and why she shouldn't take it personally...

where to go...
be it to her best friend's kitchen table...
or a charming inn in the woods...
when her soul needs soothing...

what she can and can't accomplish in a day... a month...and a year...

So any one who knows me by now will have come to the conclusion that i never really left my childhood behind. I think that is soooo cool.

I also discovered something frightening about my self. I have recently left my life behind and become a couch or bed potato. It's all about the tv and the laptop these days. So i decided to try knitting. Knitting you say? I know sounds absolutely crazy and boring but at least i can knit in front of the tv sitting on my bed.

You didn't expect me to cut off just like that!! An addict needs to be weaned off not cut off. Anyways i am sure you guys are wandering what this has to do with McDreamy. Well my main stud from Grey's Anatomy is in the latest flick i got my eyes on. It comes out on 21st of November and is called 'Enchanted'. I will definitely get the dvd and put it beside my Grey's anatomy box collection. lol!!

Comics rule for all time

I fondly remember every Friday with joy. My dad would pack my brother and I to 'Mate' supermarket (Adeniyi jones avenue) and give us both 5naira each for our comic of the week.
It was more fun than the regular barbie dolls that just sat there and did nothing.
We had it all!!!
Teen titans, superman, batman, wonder woman, x-men, spiderman, dungeons and dragons, etc.

And our cartoon collection was second to none. Secretly i think my dad used us as an excuse to keep watching cartoons. He would come home for lunch everyday just to (see us? nahhhhh) watch 'Voltron'. lol!!!

These days we have moved from books to the big screen so the latest big thing now is superhero movies. The latest in this is Iron man and IT HAD BETTER REACH MY SIDE OF THE OCEAN FAST.

The preview is funny and exciting at the same time so i am waiting with my breath held in.........................................and out. (I can hold my breathe that long).

It stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Terrence Howard. It is set for 2nd of May 2008. Abeg that one tooo tay jo!!!

I better go find the next best thing to watch. Maybe 'The Comebacks'.

Invasion of sleep

So here i was yesterday night thinking, ' What am i posting up on my blog next'? Then i just got interested in blog surfing and before you know it 12midnight looms and i am cross eyed. Seriously the screen was multiplying before my eyes so i just shove the laptop onto the floor.

Then (Drum roll), blogsville invades my dreams. I was browsing, posting and all that in my sleep. Funny thing is i cant even remember what the heck i posted and whose blog i was on. So i am going to get a life. Unless temptation overwhelms me to post i am not going near (Yeah right!!) blogsville for 24hrs.
Will i pass or fail? We'll see.

Celebrity Takes 2 week 2

So more today on Sod's Celebrity Takes 2.
After watching today i have listed my celebrities in order of their potential. A hotness scale if you will. Today, my comments are on the celebrities. I will come back to give my opinion on the judges and presenters. Believe me i got a lot to say.
You can watch this Sat 7-8pm and Monday 6-8pm (Repeat) at Ben tv online here.

'Dance machine' and 'rubber' were absolutely cool!!!! Way off the chain. I think this babe is a winner for sure. Others may prove me wrong but damn!!!!!!!. All i can say is Damn. Speechless!!!!!
I don't know what to say except this babe is HOT HOT HOT!!!

OMO SEXY lived up to her name. She did a hip hop number and that babe is sensual. I really didn't think she had it in her but hmmmmmmmmmm i wish i could pull it out of the bag like that. The girl moved like a 16 yr old. But why??? Why??? I am almost green with envy. As a betting woman? She is someone i would put my money on to see in the finals.

First off all the man is tall. He did a dance to 'The devil is bad' by the W's. For those of you who don't know, it's kinda like a jive. His partner lovette is really small so i am so pleased they found a way to make the dance work.
I am developing a kinda crush on this man. lol!!

He was first up. Did some African piece. It was a cool start to the show. Amazing. I was truly impressed and i want lillian's outfit. The ankara and style were stunning. I really wish i had that out fit to rock to some party. Lillian we are the same size. Send it to me PLEASE!! lol!!

Zizi pulled a waltz. I don't have anything against a waltz per say. Maybe i have been watching too much 'So you think you can dance' but i was looking at stuff like keeping your cage up and all the technical stuvzzz. A few things to watch out for in their technique but then this is their first night out so we will just keep looking and see what she does in the livelier routines.

Funmi did a dance to Angelique Kidjo's Agolo. I think the dance was good. I would have loved to see some more fluidity to her motions. She was on point but i just expected a little something more and it hasn't come out yet.

This was just not fair. At least for a first dance put the man in his element or is this a competition tactic? He was made to dance 'Adonai' by 'Avalon'.
He was totally out of his element i must say. It was ok as ok goes. Not a big wow. But like i said it could be a tactic to make people under estimate him.

Nomoreless cant complain that the dance was difficult. It was basic, easy, and pulled off correctly could have been a stunner. He did not pull it off. After a while all i could do was watch his partner. She showed me what the dance was supposed to be and i liked it. He needs to pay more attention to detail instead of going through the motions trying to get to the end. Maybe he was just plain nervous i really dont know.

He had to do a waltz. Why why why???? He was uncomfortable and it showed. The suit was too small. The shoulders kept bunching up when he was dancing. Designers help this guy out. Stop spoiling his fyness. He does seem to know and recognize that the heat is on so we all hope that by next week he will come out with ........'SOMETHING'

Sod Celebrity takes 2 online

For people without sky you should be able to watch Ben tv online here.
For the times you can see my previous post here.
Sod Celebrity Takes 2 is the official website. Check it out.


I really have no business posting anything today. I got the flu. I cant go to work so i am at home with lemsip, stepsils and sleep. But then my baby cousin (If you can call a uni chick a baby. lol!!!) Oyinkan published a book of poems. They are absolutely great and i haven't been able to put the thing down. For now my favorite is mirror mirror. Tell me what you think.


Mirror mirror on the wall,
Will you make me six feet tall?
If i look again will i see,
Someone that doesn't look like me?
Will i suddenly be much slimmer?
And will my smile begin to shine?
Will my tummy be a great deal firmer?
Will i look and begin to look fine?
If i cease to eat my fish and chips,
And throw away that luscious meat,
Will i prefer the size of my hips?
And will the boys chase me like i am a dog in heat.

If i twist my body to the side,
Which wobbly bits will it hide?
Or if i put on the right colour,
Will it make me look far smaller?
O mirror mirror you are so cruel,
Why must you make me look like a fool?
It is so hard to please you,
I have run out of ideas on what to do.
Mirror mirror don't you care?
I cannot be like the models out there.
So i am going to turn you to face the wall,
I don't need to look, not a bit, not at all.

More Celebrity takes 2

The celebs have been paired up with partners. My views on this below:


A lot can be said for this pair. Wale has truly earned he name rubber. The guy is absolutely boneless. I hears wunmi is a dance machine so Funmi who seems to be loved by all has her work cut out.

OMOTOLA JALADE EKIENDE and Agedah Doubara Buddy

A lot can be said for our beloved 'OMO SEXY'. I would love to see how she plays out on the sensual latin dances. As for buddy? He dances like waffi on the tongue of an urhobo man. lol!!

FUNLOLA AOFIYEBI and Bimbo Obafunwa

Well well Funmi seems to be everyone's darling since her palace days and Bimbo is a 3 time dance championship winner (SOD TAKES 2). Need i say more? The heat is on!!!!!

PASUMA WONDER and Funke Iroko

I dont need to say anything. I don think there is a nigerian alive who doesnt know pasuma (Or maybe i am just razzz). About Funke she is inspiring. In anything she does the drive to succeed is mega strong i just hope pasuma can keep up.

RYAN OKWARA and Lovette Ogoh- Marquis

Bryan is Fine. With a capital F. On looks alone this man has my vote. But guess what? He has a secret power on his side. It's called Lovette or 'Love it' as i say. I am always left is awe when this little 50kg wonder gets on stage so all i can say is watch out. She could make OBJ stunning on a dance floor so............................................


Zizi i think is most famous for her turban style head wrap. I would have to see how she pans out.
Ice on the other hand is as cool as his name. He can be a genius when coming up with dances. He freestyles like butter on a hot knife and has such an endearing personality.

KUNLE AFOLAYAN and Jennifer Ogbor

Kunle is cute as hell. He just has this spoilt baby boy look all the time. I am sure he will get a lot of votes. You just wanna take him home and take care of him. I always thot he was just a yoruba actor but now i know he is actually a director in his own right. As someone use to directing will he give Jennifer a tough time? We'll watch and see.


Tara is a beautiful young mother of 3 who is very accomplished Edet is a deep dancer who always makes his audience think long and hard about life.

SOUND SULTAN and Lillian

Lillian is a lagos born Salsa guru. Cant wait to watch her.


Flaky (as we that know and love the babe call her) is a fun loving sensitive babe. And talented to boot. Flaky is a joy to watch. Her grace and fluidity makes her one of the best dancers in Spirit of David. I personally dont know much 'bout nomoreless so we have to watch the show to find out about him.
