Model of the week: Omowunmi Akinnifesi, MBGN 2005
I really luv her outfit. She has really stepped up her style game!

Hey Everyone!!!!
How was your week? I’m sure most of u r back from your holidays now! How was it? Please give us the gist!
Meanwhile, all the things that I procrastinated and postponed last year
E.g. Doctors Appointments, Spa Days, Hair Appointments, Dates (lol)…
have caught up with me! That’s why I haven’t been blogging as much as usual but that is all going to change.
So from next week, you can expect full-time blogging from me!
Anyways, I present: Weekend Luv – The 1st 2007 Edition.

The ladies of Cranberry now have a blog! I luv luv luv it!
Fashion at its best!
The styling is hot, the clothes are hot, the ladies r hot!
Someone was telling me that I am always saying that I am proud of people on my blog but I cannot help it when young people are doing BIG things…rock on ladies!

Boorish Male
I am really likin’ this blog. Nigerian dude who just moved back to naij…u know the story but I just luv the way he weaves his stories and relates his experiences. Very interesting!

36 Inches of Brown Legs
Young lady having fun in Lagos…High jinks ensue!

Very interesting blog for a young Nigerian mum. Very funny and cute. It makes the whole concept of motherhood more relatable. Nice One.

What’s Poppin’
UK indie-rock star, Kele Okereke (his parents are Nigerian) of the band, Bloc Party (I luv their music…dont believe me? I’m serious!) has come out of the closet and confirmed that he is gay. HERE

Hephzibah (pronounced: f-z-bah) costume party @ TerraKulture this weekend. Details – HERE

TruSpot Radio
I love this site soooo much!
The hottest Nigerian music on 24/7.
This website is on lockdown on my laptop…I just leave it on and enjoy the music!
Check it out!

Nigeria Entertainment
NE has a new edition out! It is a multimedia edition. Very interesting one! Kudos to Toni Payne. Good luck at the Future Awards next week. Ms Minx, Lola and Just Me are still in the running for the future awards too…Good luck ladies!

FaZe – Kolomental
This is one of the hottest songs in naij right now.
It’s got a slamming reggaeton beat. Check on it! Do you think that FaZe ‘s new album is going to hotter than 2Face’s new album? Let’s wait and see!

D’Banj – Rundown (Funk U Up)
This is supposedly D’Banj’s second single off his new album.
D’Banj is just killin it! Dude is mad talented! Why Meeeeeee…kokolet 1, 2! Everyone must have shouted these words at one point this xmas. Anyway, D’Banj is also very hardworking. He performed at sooooo many events last year including my lil’ sister’s end of year school party! LOL

2Face – If Love Is A Crime
New song off 2Face’s new album…. Not bad at all.
2Face’s new album had better be HOT! He set a really high standard with the last one so he has to maintain that. I wish him all the best!

****Make sure u buy original copies of their albums, support nigerian musicians! I want them to be flying G5s and driving Maybachs this year! If possible, one of them should be dating Beyonce by the end of the year. AMEN!****

Now at the end of every weekend luv I will be asking a random question.
As in a question that has been weighing on my mind.
Might be related to me or it might not…
Let us know your opinion.

Would you date a divorced dude who has a child?

That’s it folks!
Have a great weekend!!!!!!!!! See you on Monday…Ciao!

    January 12, 2007 at 10:01 am

    Lol, angie is mad.

    Okay so I have to take you off my update list. I love Kolomental! Its so not Faze’s style though. I guess its the same as have to cater to the commercial stuff.

    Answer: I wouldn’t date a divorced guy with two kids. Relatives are hard enough to deal with.

    Oh finally nice to have u back Bella…the amount of times I have been back and forth on this site awaiting an update..gosh!!!.. a sister was really going to give up on u.

    Yeah..more blogs to read…and pass away those boring times @ work.

    Faze is a darling..I’m a fan of whatever he does…at least he is way better than the stuff that Black Face comes out with…
    But for instance(lol…I just had to go there) 2 of another level….Yes o!!!

    Loving D’banj’s album…but for a while I really thought he was saying “F***K U Up..and with those lyrics…one couldn’t really blame me…lol

    As for the answer to the random question:Hell NO!!!!….not to sound naïve o…but me I think God made those ladies out there that can handle such responsibilities different(in a class of their own!!) …not my cup of tea…
    Can u imagine @ my young age..i’d now be carrying Baby Mama Drama for men!!!
    But we thank God…cos someone must marry them sha.

    I wouldn’t date a divorced dude with a child or a single guy with a child for personal reasons(my mom did it and it backfired in all our faces…the child sexually molested some of us).

    Having said that you need to treat things on a case by case basis but it’s definitely taking on a lot and who needs the stress?

    A s a young african lady (not from naija) though..I love your blog!

    HAd to answer the random question…never thought I would until I met this goregous hunk of man from the caribbean whose eyes turned my insides into melted butter….this “bobo” was F-Y-I-N-E.

    I dated him for a while and have no regrets. It’s usually easier for the guy since the kids don’t live with him.

    Sup bella, welcome back 2007. l felt the same way. l was wondering what was going on with you. Sha, 2face music is just a total whaack. l don’t think 2 face can ever make a much better ablum. African queen is the one and only………….to hit the market and worldwide. Sha, girl l love faze………….l think he is the latest up reigning naija artist. But sad enough that’s the same beats psquare used in the remix of busy body.

    NB: I can never date a guy that’s divorced not to talk of with a child. God will never give me that. Amen. My parents will shoot the guy before he even land the door not to talk of bla bla……

    Dang, it being a minute since have been here. Well ain’t nothing changed as i can see, your conner is still smoking….keep up the good work girl!!!.
    Now as per the model of the day, she is really pretty, looks alittle bit like Aaliyah in “Romeo must die”. Now i know thin is in but what i don’t understand is why these MBGN girls are getting skinnier and skinnier every year. Pls tell me that picture is not a true reflection of Ms Omowunmi’s waist size. Kilode? someone needs to feed Ms Thing some Hamburgers and fries. Naija folks are starting to take this whole “lepa” thing too damn far.
    Now in regards to music, my dear Bella u never fail to disappoint. Thanks a bunch for highlighting D’banj as one of the hottest artist of today. That guy has got mad talent. I had the opportunity of listening to his new album when i was in naija, and to say i was impressed is an understatement, i was really blown away. Bought a bunch of his new CD for my crew over here and they all love it. Now i am a little upset that i didn’t get to go to any of his shows in Lagos due to some other events i already had planned but i heard he will be touring the states soon and hope to meet him then……not on groupie level o, abeg.
    Now to your question of the day; my response…..hell yeah!!!!! as long as he agrees to put the little gremlin up for adoption after our nuptials……..just kidding…..but on the real though, i would definately go for it. Just ‘cuz his first marriage didn’t work out doesn’t mean the second will end up like that. Besides, life is all about taking risks, so why make this an exception

    I know it takes a toll sha, but do it for the people 🙂

    hey bella, still feeling ur blog as ever, listened to the truspot radio, they’v got nice naija hits, which aint bad. ok about the question, i’ld only go 4 it if i was about 30 or so, though the fact he’s got a kid might be an issue, but really at that age its ok to date a divorced dude. well, provided he’s rily over and done with his ex. but i’m stil young so its a definite no-no for me lol!!!

    a divorced dude with a kid? well, never say never, but it will take a LOT for me to get there; not because he’s not a good man, but because I will be terrified. would the child like me? would his ex wife give ur drama? will his family like me? will he pick his child over me – which will probably be the case?

    Date a man that is divorced fine. Get serious,as in commitment, NO.

    Common one I see is single Naija guys with kids. Bella would date such a guy? Same issues as divorced man?

    Actually my friend and brother is divorced and has a son from a separate woman, from after the divorce. Before I would say no, but the way Ive known him, I think it would be hard for someone to say no to him. He is every womans spec, 6ft 4, very handsome and vey sucessful. And he is wonderful. He hasnt found it hard finding women, casue they run to him like magnets, but that doesnt make him a player or whatever. Just another man with a past. He is waiting on the Lord to send him someone correct his way.

    Welcome back bellanaija!
    good stuff you’ve brought to us as usual..thanks gal!

    Back to the question…hmmm well perhaps i would date a divorcee…but the question is more “would a single man date my divoreced butt with a kid?

    January 14, 2007 at 5:06 am

    erm it all depends on how much i love the guy o

    hey been reading ur blog for a while and have been quite impressed and enjoy it too.keep up the good work.

    i heard tu-face’s new album recently and he has some pretty awesome songs on it.

    about dating a divorcee…like d person in the previous entry said…if i really love this person…why not!Though it’d be hard but we cud make it work.

    The Cranberry girls are adorable; they are at a point were they better get representation of the legal kind and start some trade-marking right away. 2Face is always adorable and the single sounds good. Would I date a divorced dude with a kid, hm, it is easy to say no or yes and we are talking dating not marry. This is a question best answered with all the specifics laid out e.g has a kid but does said kid live with him, divorced recently or for past 15 years? So for now, even though conventional wisdom lends more towards a loud resounding no but since half of all marriages these days inevitably end up in divorce, I dare say yes but my answer is going to have to be as much as I hate the ambiguity of it, I don’t know.

    FYI, I came across your blog when I was searching on some Femi and Fela Kuti info, I love it!
    I also love that there is a conglomerate of my Naija people out there in the blogosphere doing great things, with the different topics and content, I just love it. When you guys get a moment stop by my neck of the woods, I need more of that green white green persuasion in my red, white and blue current existence…cheers!

    I’d have said an emphatic NO before, but now i’d say never say never. Everyone has a story to tell, some pleasant and some not so pleasant. It all depends on the guy’s story. It will be dangerous to generalize and place everyone in the same category.

    depending on the circumstances I would marry a divorced man with 2 kids. I know men (ok a man) in that situation and the woman who marries him will be a very lucky one but it completely depends on the person in question.

    Welcome back, I don’t believe I mised this! Thanks for feature :).

    Before I had a kid it was a definite no to date someone with kids, now if I were single……..still not sure.

    Hey I couldn’t open Faze’s “kolomental” song.

    As for the question….I probably could do it depending on the kids age though. Anything past 8/10yrs, I’m not doing.
