Wow, it’s been a minute since I came on here, and yes, the guilt is consistently nibbling away at my conscience. However, our department has it under control and I should be back on track soon with some updates and a couple of interesting stuff in the offing.
For now – and especially for my U.S. peeps who are wishing they were all the way in the motherland, but can’t make it for one reason or another – Africa’s coming to you! Actually, let me not insult anyone’s sensibilities (my own included), Naija (Nigeria) dey come catch you ooh! Live on July 2nd, at the Strathmore Music Center in Maryland, is the one and only award-winning D’banj, who is currently nominated under the “Best International Act” category in the 2011 BET Awards! So for all you sugar bananas and sweet potatoes, check out the flyer for more details or join the event page on Facebook to stay updated. Have no idea who D’banj is? Allow me to introduce you :) Take a peek at “Fall in Love” – and listen out for the exclusive African romance lines – and see what the hype is all about. Tickets available here! Enjoy!
