Category: About me..


Echoes Of Silence…

At a time in my life, i felt alone.. like i wasn’t loved.. during my lowest moments, i wrote this little note.. it so happens i stumbled upon it recently.. looking at it now, i’m glad things are not as it used to be.. when you’re done reading, i guess you’ll know why.. happy reading…
There’s a reason that I hate romances. They always remind of the things that I never
had. Love, such an insignificantly small, four lettered word; yet all the people seemed
to be so obsessed over it. Frankly I don’t get it. I don’t get any of it. May be it’s just me,
and my weird self.
I’ve been involved with women, some casual, and some I thought were serious. But I
suppose I never really loved them. I thought I was, and at times I forced myself to feel
that way. I’ve said the same lines to every single girl. They keep asking me why them?
What made them so special to me? And why do I love them? I just merely told them
what they wanted to hear. Does that make me a liar? I suppose so. Does that make
me heinous? I don’t know, maybe it does. I’ve been living in pretense all my life. I’ve
been pretending so much that I’m confused about what I really am. I’ve been lying all my
life, and I’ve lost the truth somewhere along the road.
The truth is that I’ve always kept my feelings in check. Truth is that I’ve kept my
emotions shut. I was five when my dad left my mum, after they had a fight and he hit her.. Most would’ve cried, most would’ve
broken down, most would’ve acted differently than the way I did. I just kept staring at
my mum, not sure what I should feel or how I should feel. People around were giving
me weird looks. Their faces were worried, and their eyes asked “what’s wrong with
that kid?” So I learned from my mistakes. When it was my grandmother’s turn to go to
the other side, I just followed the lead of my relatives. They looked sad, I looked sad.
They started crying, and so did I. even though I wasn’t really sad.
I’ve been called a jerk, a dick, a moron, a loser; none of which I’m denying. I may be all
of those, and probably more. I know inside, that I’ve earned all of them. The facts that
even the relationships that I claimed serious, not lasting for a considerable amount of
time, made me realize that I truly deserve all of them. May be it is because that
inside I’m still a little child. I want toys that I don’t have, and when I finally get them I
just get tired of them, and start looking for a new toy to play with. Or maybe it is just
simply because I’m afraid of commitments.  I am damaged, I know, and probably
beyond anyone’s help.
I am man with little regrets in my life. I neither regret nor resent any encounter I had
with anyone in my life. So why am I writing this? I myself don’t know the reason. May
be I feel guilty for all the lies I’ve said, and all that I made others believe, or maybe I
just felt like getting this off of my chest. I did it all to spare myself of loneliness, and
to get myself distracted from my life itself. I guess I’m a little bit more selfish than I
thought.
 

Celebrity Crush – NIYOLA

Image

Eni sexy.. yoruba girl toh sure..Eniola Akinbo popularly known as Niyola

discovered her affinity for music at age 8

when she attended a Funmi Adams concert with her father. Soon, she started

developing interest in singing; deciding later that year, to do a song at the annual

church convention.

Her father who’s a music enthusiast and vocalist groomed her for the convention

together with her brother and sister who also had love for music. After that

performance, little Eniola went home with gifts and envelopes from people who had

confessed that she had an amazing talent. From then on she recognised her talent

and started nurturing her musical skills while creating music that her older ones

listened to.

Niyola’s unique story started in 2000 when she took part in the AMEN starlet

competition and emerged first runner up – meeting with the then “Plantashun boys’’

who invited her to do a duet with the group (she ended up recording with Faze as the

group would soon split).

She later joined Trybe records briefly; leaving to jump start ‘’Make sum noise

‘’entertainment a production outfit owned by Freestyle of TRYBESMEN. She released

her first singles Me n U (in da club) No more and Dem say on the imprint.

Image

After the release of the singles, it wasn’t long before she got signed to Westside

Music (where she released her eponymous debut album containing the smash hits

Bring it on and Call my name). The album got two nominations that year at the Hip

hop world awards. She also signed a management deal with Now muzik.

Niyola has performed at major events like the Akon concert in Lagos, Calabar festival

in Cross Rivers, Yhello Festival alongside Sasha, and toured with CELTEL (now Airtel)

in 2008. She also took part in the first girl power Tetmosol project amongst many

others. In 2009, she took part in the OVATION RED CAROL theme song.

With influences like Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Rachelle Ferelle and Beyonce,

Niyola’s vocal strength has brought about collaborations with Ruggedman on” If I

could do it’’, “ If you want my love” with Freestyle, ‘’All my days ‘’, “Leaders of tomorrow

‘’with Sasha amongst many others.

She’s also written soundtracks for movies in her dialect Yoruba like FEYIPITAN, OGIDI

OMO ABANIDARO amongst many others. In 2007 she wrote the theme song for 2FACE

IDIBIA’s 2nd album concert and also did jingles for Coca Cola and a few other

international brands.

As an undergraduate in the University of Lagos, and an apostle of travel and tourism,

Niyola combined her studies with her music; building up a strong profile as a

musician to reckon with, while earning her first degree.

Following the successful release of her first independent single TURN ME ON in

December 2010, the singer has now gone on to release her hot new single titled

UNPREDICTABLE (featuring Skales and produced by Ex O). UNPREDICTABLE was

written with Ex O and is a translation of Niyola’s personal experiences, as is her

forthcoming album.

Niyola recently got signed to Empire Mates Entertainment and was featured on

several tracks on the EME Empire Mates State of Mind album alongside leading

Nigerian acts, Wizkid, Banky W and Skales; including her debut single as the EME

1st lady, titled ‘Don’t Go There.

Eni baby, if you’re reading this, hope to meet you someday… love..
