Long live Jidenna, what can we say the King is born! We love his  latest track which just got released yesterday, It is his time and boy can we just say our fingers hurt from hitting the replay button! We are not going to stop, though, Yes sir!!! Long live Chief Jidenna. The Naijagal council has spoken!!  
Hi Readers, yes I am truly back why do people keep on asking? And Yes I am freaking Real! I am going to take this blog to new heights! Here is what we are going to do. Positive stories mainly featuring my Naija gals but you know what I love some tea too so who knows. Well my story today is the Cover of Essence.
I was  walking down a grocery store aisle and what do I see right in front of me? Bam!! Our very own Naijagal Star Actress Uzo Aduba Orange is the new black on the cover!!! I wanted to yell but I held back! Grabbed my copy (I am still reading it) but just in case you haven't gotten yours, you should really check it out! Red really works with you girl!!!

It is Fire! Fire Fire!!!

Uzo Aduba’s story is drastically different from that of her Orange is the New Black character’s, Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren.
For starters, the 35-year-old actress is a self-admitted thrill seeker who is a fitness junkie and who boasts not one, but two Emmys. Oh, and she completely stuns on the cover of our September issue of ESSENCE.
“This business will try to convince you that you’re not enough,” she says in her cover story. “That you’re not pretty enough, thin enough, talented enough, interesting enough, experienced enough, and I say, ‘Enough. Enough with that!’”
Aduba explains that she struggled to merge her Nigerian roots with her Boston upbringing (she once asked her mother if she could change her name to Zoe). It wasn’t until she discovered acting that she began to truly find herself.
Aren't we all trying to find ourselves? Great work Uzo! You make Naijagals Proud!!

This is why we love Tiwa Savage:


  1. She is amazing and real.
  2. She prays and holds no grudges
  3. She still gets down to business even when things are rough at home
  4. She is humble
  5. She loves her husband and tried to make her marriage work
  6. She loves her fans
  7. She lives a simple life regardless of her celebrity status
  8. She continued a tough interview with a less than enthusiastic interviewer!
  9. She is dedicated to her son Jamil
  10. She is a true Naijagal
I am dealing with alcohol problem, infidelity, cocaine, bad debt and a husband who is jealous of his wife’s success! Our Naijagal Tiwa Savage reveals her anguish, pain and the truth behind her marriage and her husband’s suicidal break down.

Tiwa savage finally breaks her silence. She talks about her husband’s infidelity meeting a lady in hotel in a hospital while she suffered complications from pregnancy at a hospital in London. She covered up so much to make her husband feel like the man. The head of the household. Since the birth of her son TJ has not spent a single Naira on her son! He claimed he did not have money for diapers but he had money to cut his hair and take women to hotel rooms.

This morning, Brymo teased followers concerning the launch of his fifth studio album titled ‘Klitoris’ with the official paintings that appears crazy artisy, in addition to the official launch date.
In a recent interview, Brymo explains what the hell he was thinking when he came up with the concept behind the artwork as well as what the album title means.
 ‘It’s a Greek phrase for ‘key’. It's the place the phrase ‘clitoris’ itself originates. This album is the important thing to a sure door I've knocked on for years; and sure it was meant to be sensual, there must be two sides to the coin’.
Ugh? Can some translate what he just said? Still love Brymo though!!! Read more on http://naijagal.com/http://naijagal.com/

I blogged about the novel ABEKE, which will be available for download sometime in march according to the authors. Well here is an unedited snippet. Your comments of course are welcomed

CHAPTER 1

“Are you coming over Abeke?”
That was Rex calling over the phone. He always had a way with words. Why in the world would I want to attend his party? Could it be because his father is the governor of Lagos and he is now running his own oil marketing firm or could it be because I am just plain bored with his antics?
“Abeke? Did you hear me or are you suddenly deaf?” I heard his voice once again through my cell phone. Oh goodness, I just wanted to hang up the phone already. But for some stupid reason, I could not bring myself to cut the line off. Well who cared anyways it was his phone credit not mine.
“Listen I am going to send the driver to pick you up on Saturday, the party is at the Vortex  up on queens drive, be ready. Oh and one more thing, you have to wear white. It is an all white party.”
Before I could utter a word, he hung up the phone! I could not believe it that I, Abeke the lady every man “worshipped” on the island could be treated this way and yet take it. Well what can I do, he is after all the most sought after bachelor in the country.
Sex with Rex was also mind blowing, of course I had to teach him a few tricks of my own, and I loved it that I could please him.
I remember the first time we had sex; it was the night his father got sworn in as the governor. Rex was having a party at one of his father’s many mansions and a friend of mine, Lola, so happened to invite me over.
There he stood incredibly dark handsome, smooth brown complexioned and six foot tall. He had on a pair of large aviator “stunners”. I felt his eyes staring directly at me, mind you all the girls in the room were all over him. Yet I was the one he was attracted to.
“Isn’t that silly?” Lola asked nudging my elbow. “Who is he trying to impress?”
“Eh who?” I asked feigning ignorance; of course I knew who she was talking about.
“Him, party boy, wait a minute I will introduce you two.”
Before I could say no, Lola dragged me over to him. With his hand wrapped around her waist, Lola gave him a quick hug then turned to face me.
“This is Abike, a good friend of mine darling.” What she just called him darling, were they together?  I wondered.
“Abeke…..” He said with out taking off his shades. “Hope you are having a good time, let’s dance.” Who was I to refuse this sexy goodness of a guy? The next thing I knew I was dancing to the music by popular musical group, psquare.
“Personally” the song blared away. Of course Rex was not actually dancing to the song; instead he had his arms wrapped firmly around my waist, swaying side to side slowly. His issey miyake perfume began to take over my senses. I still hadn't seen his eyes, but from what I had seen in pictures from the vortex parties on face book, they were gorgeous. One wondered how the governor birthed such a handsome guy. Well one only needed to see his mother, a former beauty queen. Rex had taken after his mother, thank God.
I could feel his chest pressed firmly on my breasts, his right hand gliding down to grab my backside while the left held a huge bottle of the drink, “Moet”.
I was officially under his spell. I told myself he must be under my  spell as well. We probably danced in the same position through four songs; occasionally I would hear a friend say hello to him.
“You are beautiful,” he whispered into my ears. Then he turned around, a bottle of “moet” in one hand, the other holding my arm and leading me slowly out of the party venue and into a waiting Hummer. Motioning the driver of the vehicle, he said
“My condo at 1004 and no looking back”
“Yes oga.” The driver replied looking straight ahead.

The couple celebrated Monday night with Chyna's mother, hitting up Ace of Diamonds strip club in Los Angeles to toast their engagement.

Chyna, 27, took to Instagram to announce the happy news, sharing a selfie of the two all smiles with the large rock on display.

"YES...!...!...!" she captioned the post.



Kardashian also shared a picture of his fiancée from inside the strip club, showing off the sparkly ring and holding a stack of bills.

Omg this has to be the Most Unbelievably Crazy Article which asks is Lagos the most Dangerous City in world??

What do you have to say?

This article from playboy's Adam is mad crazy cool? He says:


Every privileged soul I met in Lagos had at least one story about staring down the barrel of a gun or the edge of a knife (the poor and working class are mugged and robbed just as often), and there were few better targets than the players heading to Industry Night at Sip Lounge. Lagos is a city of approximately 20 million people where some 9,000 millionaires float upon a sprawling mass of ajepakos (Yoruba slang that roughly translates as “twig eaters”).

Ouch!!! Insane!! But wait there is more...

Bizzle, born Abiodun Osikoya, is the 30-year-old A&R manager for Mavin Records, and like so many successful Lagosians, he was born rich. When he was in high school, a wave of “returnees”—children of the Nigerian diaspora educated overseas and tired of bashing their heads against the European and American glass ceilings—came home in search of real opportunity and a chance to shake off the anxiety of racism.
As far as many of the returnees were concerned, the old stories of Africa—the ones about war, poverty and corruption—were outdated. It was a new Africa now. Mobile-phone technology wired the continent, investment and entrepreneurship were flourishing, and Nigeria, with its oil wealth and energetic population—a significant portion of which was under 35—was poised for unprecedented growth. Lagos even had a new sound.
Okay now for the biggie!!
While the Island features steel-and-glass skyscrapers, posh boutiques, ample space and wide, paved roads, mainland ghettos are jumbles of tin-roofed cinder-block walk-ups and spiderweb electric lines sagging over often unpaved roads running parallel to open sewers. Unemployment is rampant, health services are woeful and emergency services are nonexistent. If someone collapses from heart failure or a robbery is in progress, Lagosians have no reliable number to call. People die every day from treatable illnesses and kids learn early that life on the mainland is cheap, which is why most grow up dreaming of one day making it to the Island to claim a piece of the good life.

Sounds about right this has to be fixed!
 Credit is extraordinarily difficult to obtain, and even my own credit cards were cut off after one or two charges in Lagos. As a result, the city runs on cash, which makes it almost impossible to transcend poverty. That’s why you see Lagosians of all ages selling anything and everything they can find at roadside intersections and even on the expressways when traffic grinds to a halt.

Its called hustling!

Okay now for what we always knew Lagosians do not feel danger!  What do you have to say?

Happy Easter!!!
