Hi Everyone,
How’s it going? Hope y’all had a great weekend.
I had a really fabulous weekend! Was kinda crazy tho….
So what have you been up to?

Here is a rundown!

RIP to Nigerian musical legend, Sunny Okosun. He passed away on May 25 in Washington DC USA. His legacy lives on….

I’m sure most of y’all have seen this vid already but here is the new vid from the Storm All Stars – Naeto C, Ikechukwu, Sasha P, GT the Guitarman. It’s a collab between Storm Records and Made Magazine called ‘Made in Lagos’

Here is the cover of the new Hip Hop World Magazine with D'Banj and Ruggedman. I’m feelin the concept! It feels so good to know that Nigerian musical artistes are now reaping the financial benefits of their hard work….Just a few years ago, people used to ‘pity’ musicians now they are ‘ballin’…..I hope most of them are investing their money wisely though…not just buying exotic cars.

Here are some new photos of Miss MBGN Universe, Stephanie Oforka. I know she is going to make an impact at the Miss Universe competition this year!

Uneku Saliu-Atawodi is a 20 year old polo player/polo team owner/entrepreneur…and the list goes on! I am constantly blown away by the amazing things that young African ladies are doing these days! It is so refreshing to see girls being so unapologetically ambitious!
Uneku along with her team, bella MATATA and the 5th Chukka Polo Club are organizing the first female all-international polo tournament held in Nigeria. The tournament will be playing alongside the coveted charity field tournament, from the 3rd - 8th June, at 5th chukka, Kaduna, Nigeria.The games are being played in aid of Unicef, with an auction to raise even more for the charity.It will also see the launch of the bella MATATA clothing range, and the AMAZONS POLO TEAM champagne, which has a portion of its sales going to charity.Teams are supported by TIME OUT NIGERIA, CAVERTON HELICOPTERS, and VIRGIN NIGERIA. TeamsThe African team: Uneku Atawodi (Nigeria, -1), Dominique Theones (Kenya, 0), Emma Beardashaw (Kenya, 0), and Erin Jones (RSA, 2)
The "American" team: Claudia Hodari (Argentina, 0), Kristie Hanbury (Brazil, 0), Jennifer Ciotti Diaz (Argentina, 0), and Terri (America, 1)

Luv it! I know some look at Polo with a certain amount of distain and consider it as an elitist sport.
For me that’s the same way that Tennis and Golf were looked at and see what the Williams Sisters and Tiger Woods have done to change the perception of those sports! Who knows Neku might be able to do the same for polo.

That's it for today! Have a fab week.
