Video: Koker wants you to "Do Something"

Hey eh!
First time i heard of Koker officially was on the hook for "Rich" by MI. Koker has a rich and powerful voice plus a catchy writing style.
I played and heard "Do Something" same time- the day the Choc Boys swung by for an interview on my radio show.



Since then i have been addicted, making it the song of the week and playing it at least once a day.
The video is finally out just as one or two new songs began fighting for my attention so here goes folks; enjoy.
P.s, peep the cameos!

A night spent 'Saving Milli'

So yesterday was fun.
And interesting.
And fun.
When Milli hollered at me and said he wanted to play tracks off his album, me I was like "yay".
I love first listens and just being able to feel the music away from the radio sometimes.
It was a Saturday night and Lagos might have been buzzing with a million events but there was only one place I wanted to be.
It was at M's place and the first thing I noticed was the 'trophy cabinet'. M.I has had a massive career hasn't he? 

How many trophies can you count?

Then I saw Pizza and I was like yay. Don't get me wrong, I was there for Milli, but a little food never hurt noone.

It was a small listening session with some of your radio favourites.
I'm talking Buki, Schullz, Do2un, Initama, Mannie, SenseiUche, Douglas, and of course, moi.
Milli played cuts from his EP "Childish" and we teased him a bit about "Childish" and "Save Milli". Summary? The boy thinks he needs saving... From himself. And he's childish.
Lol
So let's see.

Milli shyly plays the next track

Milli sounds fresh and has a really good voice. On tracks like "In pursuit of happyness", you can feel his truth and honesty. A lot of the earlier tracks he played were slow/mid-tempo and my first thought was, "he's going to have to be patient".
Patient because his material is good but also not mainstream here.
He does have some mainstream songs though, like "Iphone", "Cooling with my Youngings" and "Unlooking".
"Unlooking" was an instant hit with us so I definitely vote that as a single.
I recommend Milli as 'one to watch'.
I like him, think his heart is in the right place, has talent in droves and a sound waiting to be owned.
Also a quick shout out to his producers, especially CK who produced "Unlooking" and from the CBN album, "Third Mainland Bridge".
Methinks CON.tra.diction has to work with him!

#SPEECHgirl Excerpts of my speech at #Becoming conference


I have just come back from the "Becoming" conference organised by The Beautified Network. The Beautified Network is headed by Funto Ibuoye, an amazing woman committed to bringing out the queen in every woman
.
Well I am certainly chuffed that they thought me 'becoming' of this conference and I was happy to do it. It was also great to be at an event alongside Bola Balogun and Omoyemi Akerele.


 While I can't give the speech word for word, I do have some points I made below. Let me know what you think.

 1. My journey to becoming I grew up an introvert, and also a typical last born. This meant I read everything, was creative and a bit of a free spirited rebel. These are things that have helped me now in every career path I have chosen. What you need to 'become' is already there in you.

 2. Talents! The parable of the talent teaches me two things. One is whether you have one talent or ten, you must use that which you have. The other is you must do something. The failure of the man in the parable of the talents was not that he had just one talent, it was that he didn't use his talent. If you have a talent, use it. Use some for business / career, use some for passion, use some as your main focus etc.

 3. Be a Better You Everyone says 'be yourself'. This is great. But I want to be a better me. it's important to know yourself; your strengths and weaknesses. Focus more on your strengths and positives and downplay the weaknesses while you work on them. Study, learn, grow and be a better you.

 4. SHINE Growing up, I was allowed to shine. And even at Queens' College, I was taught to be a queen. Things like that help you because the rest of society is trying to get you to hide yourself. They say you're too smart, too outspoken, ahn ahn only you. Well. My challenge to you is to shine!!! O
 

#SkincareSaturday Three things to do for your skin this weekend!

Ideally, we should pamper ourselves every day.  Unfortunately, with the hustle and bustle that is Lagos, we usually end up with at best, ...
