LA BELLA

I have been staring at my cursor for one hour, before then, l had been
reading every piece of news and opinion l can about the elections on
line, before then l had been monitoring the progress of the collation
and announcement of results in Lagos and Ekiti and before then l had
been mobilizing people to vote and voting.

It is all abit much to take in and even more to distill and comment
on, especially as l can sense that there is still some real drama yet
to come. Unfortunately l cannot tell all that l know, that would have
to come in a future book. In short, l have a mental block and will thus
get away from it all for a while and go to my favourite Nigerian blog
BELLANAIJA.

That girl Bella has kept me up many nights reading her addictive blog,
how does she do it, is she even a she (so asked some fossil brain
friend of mine)? What does she look like? How does she get all the
information? Does she do this full time etcetc. Why not just interview
her some co addict asked once. I thought about it and l said nah. I
like the mental image l have about her and l'd like to keep it for
just a little longer. Just a little. Funmi loves Bellanaija.

Bella Naija said...

Wow! Thanks so much Funmi...
You really lifted my spirts!
You are an inspiration as always!

Abi said...

Lol! You are so right...she's got me so addicted too. it's crazy!! To answer one of your questions, No she doesn't do it full-time..she still has a 9-5 that occupies her which makes her even more amazing.For someone who's away from Nigeria she definitely is more in touch with home than a lot of people I know.
Great job on your show by the way, glad to see that you have been consistent.That's usually the problem in Naija, pple start good stuff but don't follow it thru. So kudos to u.Will definitely be watching your show when I am back home.

Dupe said...

Hi, just happened on this blog, nice...
But there's something I don't understand: I'm aware you a website for New Dawn, so I imagine that's for the TV you while the blog is for the personal you. What I don't understand is why you seem to bring the tv you into this blog still...

I also went through your post on'loosing yourself and finding it.' Very nice piece, but have you found yourself? I mean, beyond reading the Alchemist and other books and so much about universal laws and principles have you found your own truth? I.e. centred on your own experiences. If so, accept my congratulations, be light,brighten up your space cos that is your world.

Pink-satin said...
