    I was jejerly having a drink at Sapian when both LL and Akon came in with their entourage. The show is 1k and 5k for VIP. Judging by what Akon did last time, I doubt anyone should buy the 1k tickets. That being said im not too sure why they made it so cheap, its kind of scary.

    Yes oh– that 1k thing is some how oh– as much as we bitch about some of the expensive tickets– that is teh way forward sometimes to avoid the touts of Lagos rom taking over. Anyways the day is stil young so by Night fall I’ll know where I am going to be…I sha know it wont be no Star Mega Jam.

    i’m 4th, yay!!! Worashame! I’m at work at the moment so I can’t watch any of the videos. I think the sky is the limit for D’banj, personally. I am looking forward to getting home and watching Tony Payne’s NI debut. I love what that chic is doing!

    Have a beautiful weekend, Bella!

    I love that Amplyfyd and Akon hooked up to make a song. I wouldn’t have thought of the two of them together, but after listening to the song, it’s a no-brainer. US AFRICANS BE DOIN’ IT FOR OURSELVES!!!

    Me thinks D’Banj is obsessed with his “koko”….Am I the only one? But the tracks I’ve heard so far (thanks to you), I like.

    “Judging by what Akon did last time, I doubt anyone should buy the 1k tickets.” Out of curiosity anonymous, what did he do?

    I swear this D’banj is not well o! All he know is koko. And what is that Michael doing floating round D’banj’s video. That guy is soooooo annoying with his kpomo lips.

    I love that Soundcity guy though…

    The THIS DAY STYLE fashion was so totally fabulous. The designs were cool and the models were hot. After a bit sha I got kinda bored, the music was the same selection and you know these fashions shows are about sipping on champagne and eating shrimp and mingling the later of which was challenging since I did really know any body. But i loved it and i am gonna be ‘coping’ some of the designs…ha ha ha
