I left my heart in Lagos

January 15, 2015

I have this thing where every other day I miss a place, a city, a location.

Often times it’s London, sometimes Washington, or Houston, other times it’s Lagos. How do you miss a place you haven’t visited since you were 13? Well, quite easily.

Over the last year, I’ve been itching to return to my birthplace Nigeria, which I left aged two and revisited 11 years later. I desired to reconnect. To reflect. To do jaiye jaiye (naturally, I’m Nigerian). About a month ago, for just short of three weeks I had the opportunity to satisfy my heart’s craving and witness what I like to call “New Nigeria” for myself.

“The concept of home is a fluid state.”

“New Nigeria” is a term I coined to give expression to the emergence of the new opportunities, new scenery, and renewed hope in a country in the middle of tense times. Despite the ongoing corruption, continual gaping space between the rich and poor and sheer wahala going on in Nigeria, I found that at the best of times there are treasures all around if you look hard enough; from the young hungry entrepreneurs, to the richness in the culture. From what seems like an inherent zest for celebration, to the growth of the Lagos art scene. The designers, painters, singers, photographers, roadside hustles, okada drivers and even the stunters.

Living in one city but being in love with another has taught me one thing. The concept of home is a fluid state. It’s not as fixed nor as black and white as the city you happen to inhabit. Sometimes you can spend a large portion of your life somewhere, and it still not feel like home. Sometimes you can spend 3 weeks in another and feel more present than ever before. And often times home can be found in multiple locations. All of these realities are ok. And so, Nigeria is my home from home, wherever that is, or whatever that may feel like.

Here are just a few snapshots from the first week in Nigeria, spent in the slower-paced Abuja and Lafia. The perfect calm before the turn up that was Lagos. For some snapshots of Lagos, feel free to head over to my Instagram page.

Until next time, odaro.

MAGNIFY magazine launch – Lekki, Nigeria

December 14, 2014

I’m currently on holiday in the Motherland for some time. A large part of the first week was spent in Abuja, which was cool to visit as I had never been there before. However, towards the end of my Abuja stay I was eagerly looking forward to the next stop and my birth land, Lagos.

On the day of the MAGNIFY launch, I had quite an eventful day which involved nearly breaking my camera, after spilling Pure Water on it, having to visit the village to get it fixed by a man who did so by unscrewing my babes and letting it dry on his shop roof, boarding a delayed plane to Lagos – whilst bypassing several arguments between angry passengers and unresponsive staff, meeting a Nollywood actress while waiting for said late plane, and finally hurriedly getting dressed for the event in the car in Lagos traffic.

Needless to say, by the time I entered the venue, Stranger, I was glad to wear a smile and put all that wahala (translation: trouble in the Yoruba tongue) behind me.

IMG_5071

Upon entering, I was greeted by the stunning Ruth Awogbade, founder and editor of MAGNIFY. Having interacted a little online, it was nice to finally meet the young woman behind the magazine in person.

Not long after, I spotted two familiar faces in the crowd from back in London which was a very pleasant surprise! For the rest of the night we chatted amongst ourselves about living in Nigeria, and London life.trailer film A Cure for Wellness 2017

The event kicked off with an intimate set by Nigerian artist, Kaline who ushered the audience to silence with her keyboard skills and sultry voice. After a few songs, an introduction was made by Ruth and we all got talking and mingling amongst ourselves.

As I often do at such events, I got so carried away talking that I didn’t event think to take some of the finger-food that was on offer, or to grab a cocktail from the bar. That is, until I spotted cake. Now cake I always have time for, so it wasn’t long before a red velvet cake adorned with the word MAGNIFY found it’s way into my hands.

At the end of the night, we were all given a goodie bag, complete with a copy of the magazine which I am yet to tuck into. But just from having flicked through, the editorial look and feel has me very expectant.

All in all, a great launch and a lovely re-introduction to Lagos.

First Look: Afro Kinky Hair by Nazuri Curls

December 9, 2014

I’m currently on holiday in sunny Nigeria, but had to stop for a minute to update you ladies on this fabulous hair I’ve been rocking.

If you’ve been following me for the past 6 months on Youtube or even Instagram, you’ll know that I love me some Kinky hair.

My Kinky hair extensions journey experience began with a half wig made using Mercy’s Hair Extensions Mongolian Kinky Curly. Now, I LOVED this hair. I got so many compliments on it, it was ridiculous. Unfortunately, after blowdrying and wanding it, the hair didn’t quite return to it’s usual life-giving state.

Now being tex-laxed (I’ll update you on this in a video soon!), I was on the lookout for a full kinky wig, so that I wouldn’t have to worry about blending my now-looser leave out.

Cue my latest unit, the custom-made full wig by Papachichi Style using two bundles in 18″ and 20″ and a 18″ closure from Nazuri Curls. 

Based in both London and Nigeria, I first came across the beautiful Yasmin of Nazuri Curls at Curlvolution with Taren Guy, back in May. Having previously stalked their Instagram page, I was already excited about the brand. Just from looking at the hair online, I perceived that the textures available would blend well with different types of natural hair, they have the cutest packaging and plus, the company is owned by the two lovely ladies Yasmin and Ifeyinwa and I’m all the way here for supporting women and black-owned business.

Fast forward to July, and I was given the opportunity to get my hands on this Afro Kinky goodness!

LOOK & FEEL

First things first, the hair is gorgeous! The Afro Kinky comes in a texture closest to type 4a or maybe 3c hair, and is their kinkiest texture.

If I was to compare the hair to Mercy’s Hair Extensions, I would say that the curls are a little less defined (which can actually help with blending) and the actual weight of the hair is a lot lighter than Mercy’s Mongolian Kinky. The hair is very full and so you only need two bundles.

The hair comes in it’s most natural, freshly-washed state and so you get an opportunity to see the natural curl. I typically prefer to wear the hair in a twist out, however here I had brushed out a week old twist out to create the illusion of a blow out. And I really enjoyed it!

IMG_4222

The lace on the closure has a good density as it is not too thick or too thin. What I would recommend is that if you can help it, don’t bother to bleach the knots. I say this as my hairdresser had done so, but struggled to lift the lace, meaning that I ended with a brassy coloured closure (not ideal!). However, I do know there are products such as Clairol’s Shimmer lights, which can be used to lighten such mistakes.

The hair definitely mimics natural hair very well. Many people believe it is mine (until I graciously tell the truth lol).

One thing I did notice is that the closure and the actual wefted hair are a little bit different in texture and if you look closely, colour.

IMG_4226

For some reason, the closure is a little more brown than the rest, although I got both in a #1B. This can sometimes happen with virgin hair, but just something to note. Additionally, I found that the curl texture of the closure is a fair bit looser than the wefted hair, so twists outs are typically more defined on the rest of the hair. It’s hardly noticeable, but sometimes makes manipulating the hair into a wash and go a bit tricky as I feel that is when the difference is most obvious.

I also found that over time, the more I washed the hair, the lighter it became. So it probably went from a #1B to a #2/4 over the few months I have been wearing it on and off. Personally I like my hair a little darker, so I recently dyed it back to black using a kit from Loréal (final picture).

MAINTENANCE

IMG_4202

Like any other kinky textured hair, you treat this hair pretty much how you would treat your own natural hair. For me that means, a weekly co-wash and detangle, the odd spray of water or oil to refresh my styles and a deep condition once in a while.

I like to keep it simple with extensions, and so I have a few staples which get me through with my Afro Kinky hair:

Wash: Any Organix conditioner (and sometimes shampoo)

Deep condition: Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Conditioner (smells DIVINE!)

Style: I create my twist outs using the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie and sometimes add a dash of Coconut Oil for shine, or Eco Styler gel for extra hold.

IMG_4184

When you receive the hair, Nazuri Curls include a list of recommended products and upkeep tips, which is really helpful.

STYLING

IMG_4232

As the hair pretty much behaves like natural hair, there’s a lot of fun to be had with the styling process. Thus far, I have only experimented with wash and go’s, twist outs and faux-blow outs, but I’m sure a bantu knot out or braid out would like just as good!

Below is a shot of me here in Abuja, Nigeria. I was rocking a 3 day old twist-out which has been my staple style since wearing the hair. Back in the UK, I simply sectioned the freshly washed hair while damp into 8 pieces and twisted with my Shea Moisture Smoothie. Left overnight on a radiator (classy bird, me), unravelled the twists in the morning and voilá!streaming Alien: Covenant movie

Good people, good lovin’, good music

December 5, 2014

This year, more than any year before I’ve come to find that there is a fail-proof recipe for a perfect time.

Good people + good food + good music.

Try it. The combination is sure to make for an unforgettable gathering. When the three hit it off, it’s special. And if like me, you’re blessed to have the former present, the music and food is really just the icing on the cake.

When asked whether I am an introvert or extrovert, for a long time I used to answer reluctantly, “introvert”. I say “reluctantly” simply because I knew as soon as the words left my mouth, the faces of those I was speaking with would screw up, followed by “since when?” “no you’re not” and “oh please”. Often times, because I am generally loud (I’m working on the whole “cute laugh thing”), talkative, open and have a Youtube channel, people struggle to imagine that I could ever want to just sit on the sidelines in social gatherings and observe. The truth is, I used to be and still can be quite shy from time to time.

That said, the more I’ve grown and actually the more extroverted I have become, (having found more confidence) I’ve began to find that a majority of the time, I have the common symptoms of an extrovert. And that’s ok! Tiring at times, but fun nonetheless. I am who I am (and most likely that is an ambivert!).

But I most definitely do have my moments where I want nothing more than to spend time with myself, in my thoughts, and void of interaction with others. And boy do I enjoy them. Those days I may be found editing, writing, eating out, listening to music, planning, or travelling solo. For me, these are important and precious moments and no matter how extroverted I may be or continue to become, they will always remain that way.

However, sometimes I want nothing more than to surround myself with my favourite people, share, question, sharpen and laugh until I cry. I’m blessed to enjoy both sides of the coin and I’m even more blessed to have beautiful people to enjoy this company with.

Last Sunday, myself and a group of friends from Birmingham, London and Manchester, gathered together for Soul Live Acoustic, at Spotlight, Digbeth, Birmingham. Naturally, no good night is complete without food and so we decided to dine at the contagiously-quirky Caribbean restaurant, Turtle Bay. I say decided, but really if you see the amount of “wahala” and back-and-forthing it took to come to this decision between all of us. Ah! Eventually the Londoners amongst us won, being that there is no Turtle Bay in their neck of the woods, and so Turtle Bay it was.

The restaurant has a really cool vibe. We all agreed between ourselves that there’s something very Shoreditch about the decor and I love that. Think Breakfast Club (but much better food) meets the Caribbean and you’re pretty close. There’s always some soca, bashment(?) or reggae playing which further sets the atmosphere alight.

It being my third time dining there, I forced myself to try something different than my usual jerk chicken and rice & peas. I ordered the brown stewed chicken with a side of sweet potato fries, and dumplings although I would have liked more of a kick in the stew (it’s the Nigerian in me), it was delish!

After ending the meal with a refreshing rum-infused cocktail, we were off to the show to support our good friend Dalet, (Dave to us) perform some songs from his new EP. Soul Live Acoustic was a fantastic night of live, raw and honestly brilliant music. The perfect way to end a perfect evening.

If you’d like to see more of what we got up to and footage of the show, look out for the Vlog coming out soon!

When God says ‘wait’

November 15, 2014

You know what I really love? Being made to wait.

– Said no one, ever.

Yet, one thing is certain. In this life, you will wait. You will wait for the bus. You will wait for that pay cheque. You will wait for that career move. You will wait for what you want. Sometimes days, sometimes months, sometimes even years. And at some point it will frustrate you. But eventually, you will get tired of being frustrated. And you will seek to understand why it is necessary to wait. In this moment you may even cease from idly watching the clock and grasp how to find peace in the waiting season. Maybe, just maybe that moment could begin now.

“Just wait” – the unofficial swearword, (along with “not now”, “later” and “we need to talk”). There’s just something about waiting that riles up our flesh and stirs our emotions. But with the knowledge that waiting is one of the inevitable features of life and won’t be going away anytime-ever, we might aswell sit tight and enjoy the ride, right?

So as Christians why do we wait and what can we learn whilst sitting in the waiting room?

1. Waiting teaches us patience

Think back to something you had to wait a long time for. Maybe it was your licence, a car. That last exam. The day you would finally graduate. Whatever it may have been, when we’re made to wait a long time, there often comes a turning point when you accept that there is a time for everything and thus you have no choice but to learn patience. As we mature, we find that it’s no longer acceptable to throw all our toys out of the pram when things don’t go our way, or as quickly as we would have hoped. That’s what childhood was there for; to get all those hissy fits and melodramatic monologues out of your system.

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. – 1 Corinthians 13:11

When a hungry baby cries it is not because they are experiencing any physical pain so to speak, but simply because they lack the patience to understand that food prep takes time. Now that you are an adult, I dare you to try turning on the waterworks because the Nando’s queue is long. I promise you, it won’t be a pretty sight.streaming Life 2017 movie

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces patience. Let patience finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. – James 1:2-4

Sometimes, we are made to wait simply to learn patience and often times, we won’t get past that test until we begin to embrace the refining fire, and exchange our old habits for the fruits of the Spirit.

Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit. – Ecclesiastes 7:8

You may feel like God has had you on hold for a minute. It’s not that He is mad at you, on the contrary, God, your Father is lovingly teaching you, refining you and preparing you for what is to come. In doing so, when that thing you have patiently waited for arrives, you will be able to enjoy it all the better with a more mature and wise mind, lacking nothing.

2. We often value more, the things we had to wait for

Let’s imagine for a moment that you are a mother or a father. Maybe you are. If you were to give your child everything they wanted, exactly when they wanted it, what do you think would happen to that child? No matter how “good” of a Christian you may be, give a man or a woman everything they want as they want it and watch as gratitude withers away with every gift. As humans, if we get something easily we often let go just as easily.

To assume that we can get everything we want as and when we ask, would be selling ourselves a dream. Furthermore, you’d only be setting yourself up for continual disappointment. Nobody likes a spoilt brat. God is not a genie. Neither is He your magic lamp. The sooner we begin to understand this, the sooner we can learn how to wait well and consequently value the harvest the more when it comes into fullness. We all know the saying “Rome wasn’t built in a day”. Simply put, nothing great came easy.

So don’t get tired of doing what is good. Don’t get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time. – Galatians 6:9Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

It’s the principle of delayed gratification. Seed time and harvest. Seed t-i-m-e (the waiting season) and harvest. I believe Joyce Meyer put it wonderfully in an article titled “When God’s Timing Is Taking Too Long”:

“Between seedtime and harvest comes a time of waiting. After a seed is planted, the heat, moisture and pressure of the ground finally cause the outer hull to crack open. Then roots shoot down, digging their way through the ground. It takes time for this to happen, and it takes place underground. Above the ground, you can’t tell anything is happening. That’s the way our lives are. After we plant seeds of obedience, we feel like nothing is happening, but all kinds of things are happening inside where we can’t see. And like the seed that finally bursts through the ground with a beautiful green shoot, our seeds of obedience finally break forth into a beautiful manifestation of God in our lives.”

It may be painful waiting, but if it means that much to you, the reward will always be worth the wait.

3. Waiting reveals the true nature of your heart

You want to see the reality of someone’s character? Make them wait – long, for something they really want.

How do you behave when you are made to wait? How does what you say change? Go from 0-100 real quick?

Next to pressure, plenty and lack, I’m convinced that waiting has to be one of the most powerful revealers of character.

As Christians, many of us will wake up, bless the Lord for a new day, read our Bible, meditate, play 1-2 worship songs and then get caught in traffic and turn into the spawn of the devil on the morning commute.

Such trials show the proven character of your faith, which is much more valuable than gold–gold that is tested by fire, even though it is passing away–and will bring praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. – 1 Peter 1:7

Whilst you’re in that waiting season, take a good look at your heart. Don’t grumble like the Israelites did whilst they were being directed to their blessing. Vow to become better in the midst of your waiting. Pass the test. Repent and ask God to renew your heart and mind. It is possible to wait and have peace.

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. – Isaiah 26:3

4. Waiting reminds us that God’s timing is sovereignly perfect

If you ever feel like you’re the only person on earth being made to wait, consider this;

  • God promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations. He was 75 at the time. It wasn’t until Abraham was aged 100 that Isaac was born.
  • At 17 Joseph was sold into slavery. For two years he was imprisoned. At 30 he was promoted by Pharaoh.
  • Job’s servants were slaughtered. He lost all his possessions, his children and his livelihood. It wasn’t until the last chapter in the book that God restored Job two-fold.

After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before. – Job 42:10

Once we journey through the waiting season, we find God in all the details and the bigger picture. The more we journey with God, the more deeply we discover that He knew what He was doing all along and that His timing is always perfect.  Not a moment too soon, nor a moment too late.

5. It is through waiting that we learn contentment

Sometime last year, I cried out to God about a strong desire of my heart which I had dreamt of for years. Probably one of the biggest things I have had to wait on God for. I recall growing weary and fighting bitterness as I witnessed my friends live out the same opportunity, one by one. Honestly, in-between fighting to genuinely celebrate others and consoling myself, I began to consider that maybe I would never see this answered prayer. For a moment, I felt forgotten. Now frustrated and fidgety, I had longed for the opportunity for so long that I didn’t consider the idea that maybe I wasn’t yet ready? Maybe the wait was actually necessary and for my own protection. That day in July I hit a brick wall during worship. I’ll never forget what happened next. All of a sudden, God spoke and planted a word in me so strong that I fell to my knees crying. As He began to speak I hurriedly jotted everything down in my journal. The heart of the message can be summarised with this one scripture:

“I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.” – Phillipians 4:11-12

Looking back, I wasn’t ready for what I was praying for. I was miserable, ungrateful for what I did have and incredibly discontent with my present. It wasn’t the right term for that specific harvest. Yes, I would have been happy but with the bad “give-me-everything-now” attitude I had developed, it would only have been momentary. Furthermore, I needed to first be rooted in the love of Christ lest my love for that opportunity turn into an idol.

For so long I had subconciously put a pause on my happiness saying to myself “I will be happy when so and so is in place…” and we often do this. Why not start being happy now?

You don’t have to have a rough plane ride on the way to your dream destination. Journey well. Ask God to show you how to be content in your current phase of life. That way, when the blessing comes, your contentment will be firmly grounded in Christ.

6. Waiting develops your dependency on God

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. – Isaiah 40:31

We learn to trust God when we pass through seasons that require our waiting. As God continues to prove His faithfulness, we begin to let go of any confidence we had placed in ourselves, and gradually we place our trust in Him, almost by instinct. Looking at it like this, it is easy to see how timing plays an important part in learning to trust God. If He did everything we asked for immediately, we would never grow up as Christians.

With experience comes wisdom and a positively renewed reaction to difficult seasons;

 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. – Phillipians 4:6-7

Recently, following the tragic death of Dr. Myles and Ruth Monroe, their son, Chairo said something exceptionally poignant and profound which I believe is relevant here;

“God may not explain Himself but He will reveal Himself.”

Time often reveals truth. Time enables us to come to understand what is His good and perfect will. Time shows us the character of God whilst encouraging us to examine our own. So don’t rush the perfecting. It hurts, but don’t fight the pruning. It’s been a long road, but don’t abort the journey.

If you can just hold on a little longer, see Jesus a little clearer, it would amaze you what’s on the other side of your waiting.

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. – Romans 8:18
