Happy 21st Teni & Keni

Yesterday, my gorgeous twin sisters Ten Ten and Keni G turned 21 years old.

Then. . .

This pic is blurry, but this is the twins at their 1st birthday. That's Teni with cake in her mouth and Keni  with her famous grin.

Now. . .

Sometimes, they annoy me and I wish I could sell them.(This year alone, I have put them up on sale on my blackberry personal message 4times). But if I don't hear from them for two days, I worry and miss them.

I hate it when they're home and make so much noise with their ceaseless banter and arguments, but the minute they're gone, I miss hearing their voices.

I can't stand it when they ask me or expect me to do things for them, then again, if they ask someone else, I get offended after all I'm their Big sis.

I absolutely hate it when they ask me questions I can't answer, no jokes, the twins think I'm a walking/breathing encyclopedia, map, dictionary, thesaurus, calculator,  proof reader, fortune teller, psychic et al. Truth is it makes me feel good when they ask me questions. It makes me feel really smart.

To be honest, I can't picture a life without the twins. Happy Birthday girls! Love you!

In Love With The Super Sun

Hearing his voice and the lyrics to the song Zucidaya and More you makes me want to fall in love. *sigh. Have you ever heard a song or a voice that just told you listen, relax, its ok to fall in love.

See me talking about love. Ha ha ha. This post was meant to be an open letter to Bez to please make his album Super Sun available on compact disc. Bros made it available only online for a while. Anyways, I finally got my Super Sun album almost a month ago (18/09/11) so all is well in the land of the Sun. Been playing this album non-stop, I swear I heard my dad singing along to Super Sun. My CD  had better not scratch.

"The 15 track Super Sun album was entirely produced by the enigmatic Cobhams Asuquo, with the exception of the track “I Know” co-produced by phenom, IBK. This album captures the rare and un-distilled essence of Bez."

Yes, I got it autographed too!
On the October 15th at the Life House, I watched Bez and his band perform live at the Felebration celebration. All I can say is I forgive him for me getting the album late.

It was a serious jam session. I've only seen a couple of Nigerian artist perform live and most of them are not that great. I've got to give it to BEZ. He's amazing. I love him! (Groupie love) Ha ha ha.

Have you ever watched a live band perform? Not an owambe band. A proper one. Its amazing. Bez's band was amazing, their synergy was explosive. All the sounds of the different instruments being played at the same time was . . .  I don't know how to describe it, magic to my ears? The next time you go watch a live band perform, take time out to watch each player; the singer/vocalist, the bassist, the other guitar players, the drummer, the violinist, etc one at a time, then listen to the combination of their sounds.

After witnessing such spectacular performance last Saturday, I don't blame any girl who falls for a guy in a band. I didn't know who to keep my eyes on during the performance. Bez was entertaining with his soothing voice and dance steps (dude did alanta with his guitar). His drummer is a BEAST. I think his name is Samuel! Homie was driving everyone in the crowd crazy. Then the other guitar player "White Boy" was insane!! At one point I couldn't take my eyes off his electric blue guitar. The sounds coming from it were hypnotic. 

In need of some easy listening music, feel good music, music for the soul? I would recommend you some BEZ. My favourite songs from Bez are; Stop Pretending, Super Sun, Zuchidaya, Technically, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, I absolutely love More you and I almost forgot That Stupid Song.

If you've never heard Bez, I suggest you do, better still, go see him live if you can. Check out Bez's Website for more information about him.

Off to write my application to become a part-time member of Bez's band. I can't sing, so I'm applying to play the tambourine or rattle for them. ;-)

Love in the stars

Today at lunch a couple of us were talking about star signs, everyone else seemed to go on about how their personalities were exactly like their sign personality. Truth is I've always been indifferent about star signs, their traits, horoscopes and how exactly people relate to them. So I looked up my star sign's traits: Sagittarius

Optimistic and freedom-loving
Jovial and good-humored
Honest and straightforward
Intellectual and philosophical

Oh my gosh. . . this totally defines me. NOT. Okay, well most of it is true. But I'm not that jovial anymore. I can be, but I'm not. If you ever see me walking around with a scowl on my face, don't take it personal. 

Most of my recent posts have been music related, I'm constantly surrounded by music. Why keep it to myself when I can share.

By the way, I think I've fallen for a Sagittarius.
