I had a great time at Bacchus on Awolowo road,Ikoyi, venue of Rubbin’ Minds Democracy day get together on Thursday. Most of the speakers spoke my mind.Nigeria needs total re-engineering and spiritual cleansing as one of the speakers pointed out.
I also believe that it is not good to be an arm chair critic, rather,we should also try our best to contribute our quota to the development of the nation.Well, our creator knows best.
I left the event with Delta state born entertainer,Mitchel Ugbo popularly known as Ashionye.We chatted about the White Gig, which took place the previous weekend. As we approached the Third Mainland Bridge,we deviated to the latest news about her relationship.She denied the recent report she is no more dating Carl Raccah of Orangotan.According to her, it is a figment of the writer’s imagination. She pointed out that there are more important issues about her life than relationship break up.
The ‘Girl Power’ event she superheaded sometime ago donated some items to some charity homes.She told me that she is very much ready to support the needy if she has means to do so.That morning (Thursday), she facilitated two cartons of perfume boxes (She has perfume line) that was auctioned at an event put together by a young Nigerian designer.Proceeds from the event would go to charity
She also told www.niyitabiti.blogspot.com that would soon be coming up with a clothing line simply known as ‘Miss Ash’
This chic is driving home a point…that people should feel the pulse of the less priviledged in society and give a helping hand!
