I Went to the White House, Saw the President and Pope Strutted

YOLO and OMG: Scandal Episode 309 Recap

The last episode of Scandal two weeks ago left off after Mama Pope emerged from the shadows to her daughter, who was shell-shocked at seeing the mother she thought has been dead for the past 22 years. I was a-scared tonight because I just knew thereā€™d be no chill to be had in this episode, […]

The Greatest Troublemaker for Peace: Nelson Mandela’s Legacy

Earlier this week, I wrote about how Yoruba people take names so seriously because we think it can determine your life’s path. As we honor the memory of the late, GREAT Nelson Mandela, I reflect on his middle name “Rolihlahla,” which is Xhosa for “troublemaker.” President Mandela was the troublemaker who changed the world because […]

Winding Down the Year, Going to the White House and on Vacation!

My peoples! It’s the last month of 2013 and I’m amazed at how fast this year went by. Time ain’t playing no bald-headed games. I plan on spending this month taking it slower than usual. Well, after this week that is. Today, I’m headed to Washington DC until Thursday because I was invited to the […]

About Yoruba Names and their Meanings

As some may know, I’m Nigerian, specifically Yoruba. We’re in the Southwest part of the country, but we’re global because our culture and our people are all over the world. We’re over 35 million strong and we are everything. Yes, I’m biased. Anywho, yesterday, I started tweeting about how important names are to Yoruba people. […]

Mama Joyce Gotta Be Checked: RHOA Season 6, Episode 5 Recap

I didn’t recap last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) but cliffnotes: Apollo is a jerk, Kandi’s mama is still a fool, Kenya is living in a tiny hotel room and Porsha is heartbroken. With that being said, let’s talk about last night’s episode. Phaedra’s Silence and Peter’s Sense – Phaedra is on […]

T-Mobile is My New Archnemesis

I’ve been with U.S. Cellular since I got my first cellphone in 2002 and I loved them. They were based in Chicago and had amazing service. I even had reception when I was underground in the red line. WIN! My calls seldom dropped and even though I travel a lot, I was good wherever I […]

Happy Thanksgiving! Whose Abomination Turkey is This?

I’m thankful for so much. A transformative year with showers of blessings, awesome friends and family and living and working with passion. I am also thankful for the Cookingforbae for showing me your struggle plates as well as my crappy T-mobile service for delaying the mass “Happy Thanksgiving” texts from phone numbers I don’t recognize.

#KanyeJobTitles is Twitter’s Latest (and Hilarious) Roast

Kanye West being on this media blitz for his Yeezus album and tour has been a gift and a curse. It’s a gift because there’s no shortage of material from Kanye’s shenanigans (like when he was on Jimmy Kimmel), and curse because of the same reason. No one loves Kanye like Kanye and YAYYY high […]

And Stand your ground laws are the ultimate trap against Black folks. And we can’t forget the dude who ate someone’s […]

James Franco and Seth Rogen Win Everything for Recreating Bound 2

However, diamonds can come from coal and James Franco and Seth Rogen have blessed us all. They recreated the video shot by shot and it’s nothing but perfection, hilarity and the […]

The 10 Times I Was the Biggest Hater During the American Music Awards

Last night was the American Music Awards (AMAs) and I already wasn’t really looking forward to it. I really only watched because of Twitter (as often). Also, I didn’t feel like being nice (a day you can also called “any given Sunday”) so I am here with my questions. I seemed to gather all the […]
