True Love

So I can't be structured right now lol. But you will have Blogsville Gist at the end of the month. I finally found a salon where they 'do' black hair. I have an appointment in one hour and I can't believe how excited I am. I have not been to the Salon in the past two months. I tell you its a disaster.

I finally got to see the article on true love! For those of you interested, Bella has it on her page. I'm not very happy with the way some things I said were twisted but its all love True Love. 3 things though

1. I have not met Babaalaye, never said I did.
2. I didn't say where I worked.
3. I didn't boast about the hits. I was asked how many hits I got and my response was: that's not the point of blogging and so I don't have a counter on my main blog but my photoblog does have a default counter and has roughly 150 hits a day. I hate it when people brag and don't like to be potrayed in the same manner.

There ,I have aired my views. Now I'm fine.

In all my 'excitement' I forgot to thank Ebun Olatoye for doing a spread on Nigerian bloggers and giving us some recognition. It was truly a great idea and thanks for being so nice and making me comfortable when I met you. My subscription to True Love proves my undying loyalty as a reader but I just needed to clear that up :).

I love the article and the picture. Don't mind this press and paparazzi people, always finding a way to make their stuvs more interesting.
You are famous joo

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Beautiful lady... it was a great interview but i agree.. they sort of misinterpreted it.. but then again i sort of understand how cos if someone didn't follow it while it happened.. it'd be sort of difficult to understand the whole 'blogger nuptials' thing.. other than that it was a great great writeup and you looked gorgeous as always...

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

now you've spoilt the surprise Ive been trying to call both ya numbers all day and they are engaged, what happened to your lines nne.

Im glad you've gotten it off your chest, but great read no less.

Aww thanks for all your comments guys. It was great to come back to have this 'bumper' comment reading. Also, I don''t look like a refugee anymore, my hair is looking tres sexy now :).

BabsBETA said...

Congrats on getting your hair done. While reading the bloggers' feature on TL, I noticed that they twisted things there own way. A lot of magazines do it. Nice feature tho.

I SRONGLY BELIEVE THE BEST NIGERIAN CONTENT IS ALWAYS ON BLOGVILLE.

anybody with me on that

tminx i think you should write them and tell them!i mean online Nuptial ties,next thing it will be tminx got married to some guy she met online!thank God they didnt even mention the fact that some conrtroversy was going on about baba alaye's paternity(as in him beign OBJ's son or not)if they knew that one ,den for add am to make the story juicer!as far as i am concerned that is irresponsible journaliam and it is called SENSATIONALISM!it is just wrong

Miss Opeke said...

Congratulations GF...I am definately going to grab a copy of the July Edition of True Love Mag...

La Reine said...

LOL! I have a feeling I know all too well just how happy you are to get your hair done!

I love True Love, I think it give a positive portait of Africa. More mags should strive to be like it.

Tutsy said...

That was very humble of you Tminx....gotta admit folks like you are RARE.....keep the good work sweetheart, you're one of the best at what you do.

Least i forget, i love that picture of you in the magazine...although i have a feeling if you were in charge of the photo shoot, we might have seen some "banging pictures"...lol...guess its something about the quality of the pics you take.....okay enough said!

uknaija said...

Hair's important...

Ms. May said...

LOL @ you don't look like a refugee anymore. How much did it cost...normal or mad pricey? For some reason, i'm interested to know...LOL.

Welcome to the world of stardom!!!! Your words being misrepresented in an article is a rite of passage. LOL. Great top too.

Calabar Gal said...

Tminx,

I just came from Bella's page. U r so cute - as always. (smile) I love your blog and photoblog too. Keep on going strong. I loved the comment about the online nuptials - it was an online nuptial wasnt it and we bloggers know it was for the fun of it. So dont just mind true love. LOL!!

Oh gosh, just read mona's comment too. Seems they twisted a lot of your words. Thats journalists for you. LOL!!

Dupe said...

There is something special about a person who doesn't brag

Onada said...

deilah said...

Its just funny how virtually everyone thinks they're first. You see, all your years of blister-forming typings have'nt been in vain afterall.
Clattering Gulder bottles, all cheering you on this very tasteful achievement.

Mrs Somebody said...

Fine gal!

Daddy's Girl said...

Congratulations TMinx!! You looked gorgeous in the spread, I keep looking at my copy and smiling at how great you all look. Keep up the good work ladies!!

naijagal said...

oh just to add I did not see the post as bragging in anyway. Never mind what people will say about it. People will always talk but a successful individual rises above the talk:) check out my new blog look let me know your thoughts!

Jozi Girl said...

Hi there, I am South African and was recently in Lagos on business for 3 days and picked up a copy of True Love West Africa (we have our own edition is SA) and was actually inspired by the article. I just might start my own blog... Oh! And i never would have known about your blog if you hadnt done the interview. Dont worry too much about them twisting some of the things you said I didnt give me any bad impressions about you and you looked FAB in the picture!
