2019 APPRECIATION NOTE…
I want to appreciate everyone that has took out time to read my blog in 2018, those that have commented and liked different posts. You all are amazing! You have encouraged me and kept me going even when work has made me doubt my commitment to the blog at several times but with your followership I have been inspired to keep on writing and pushing to give you contents that are great.
Without further ado let me start by stating some milestone the blog brought me or news I enjoyed reporting and some that happened towards the end of the year while I was on break.
RESTITUTION: The story Divinely inspired would be right up there. I really enjoyed writing this one to be honest, some weeks it felt tasking, while other weeks it was just pure bliss writing it and the outcome though was superb. The followership it brought also encouraged me. As promised, I have finished writing it just need to get it edited first and get the cover page design and later in the Month it would be released on Okadabooks and just maybe later in the year I will get the hardcopy out of the amazing Novella, so I can share with everyone.
My Best movie for the year would be BLACK PANTHER It was a close one to be honest because loads of amazing movies came out from Avengers to Venom and even Aquaman just to mention a few but this by far was the movie of 2018.
The song for 2018 for me was Maroon5 ft Cardi B Girls like you I enjoyed the thrill and harmony of the song to be honest and the video did not disappoint either. In the Nigerian scene. This is Nigeria by Falz won it for me. It sent out a strong message that was needed in these times.
Hamilton won the Formula One Championship which I was excited about, Funke Akindele delivered her set of twins which I was ecstatic about also. How can I forget Toolz who, two years ago had a miscarriage, she delivered a healthy boy. My Man Gbenga released two songs which did amazing and I hope for more this new year. I got married this year which was huge lol. I also got to travel out this year.
My not so palatable moments in 2018; first let me start with the movie that really got me wondering what the noise was all about Bird Box. It totally flopped to me and I do not understand why the talk of the movie was so much. For a two-hour movie I was totally disappointed by what I watched. An Hour into the movie I was bored and tired lol. Kevin Hart being denied hosting the Oscar was another soar moment in 2018 which made me question how humans’ reason. The death of Tosyn Bucknor was another painful one in the entertainment industry. My friend Abayomi Piero aka P! passing on really did a number on me. He was a true friend and will continue to live on in my heart.
Let me stop here. It has been an amazing 2018 with all its highs and lows I am grateful to God and I thank everyone who has been with me through this journey, more of the same in 2019 as I aim to be better and grow the blog in this year. T21
P.S Expect my Review of the movie BIRD BOX on Friday also. We start in earnest.
