Very Inspiring Blogger Award Courtesy of Myne Whitman

Now, this is truly a first.  Myne Whitman nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  She blogs at Romance Meets Life, and I doubt that she actually sleeps.  She's so hardworking, y'all, and you should definitely visit her blog. Thanks a lot, Myne!!! What can I say? It feels good to be nominated.

But errr ... as always, there's a catch.

The Rules:

  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  3. State 7 things about yourself.
  4. Nominate 3 - 7 other bloggers and link back to them.

The first two are already taken care of.  Now to the rest.

7 Random Things About "The Relentless Builder"

  1. I firmly believe that there should be agbalumo-flavored chewing gum.  Seriously, I would buy it.  Why hasn't it been invented?  Oh well, I will just direct my question to Oga at the top.  Who is that? Your guess is as good as mine.  And if that doesn't work, like a true Nigerian, I will blame it on the government.
  2. I love Indian food, and regularly experiment with recipes weekly.  Curry chicken is currently trending on the menu.
  3. I randomly saw a couple's engagement pictures on Monday.  As I was admiring them, I happened to glance at the open armpit of the bride-to-be.  I am sorry to report that there was a tuft of hair there.  Lady, but why? *sobs* I wish I could erase it from my mind, but I can't.  The camera did not zoom in to see if there was hair on her legs too.  That would have been too distressing.  On a happier note, the groom-to-be either did not notice or did not care.  Me? Traumatized.  How much does a razor cost, biko?
  4. I really don't like people mis-pronouncing names.  It is one of my pet peeves.  My family members (and friends) know this and constantly use it to harass me.  It works.  God is watching all of you.
  5. I grew up in Lagos and pretty much lived all my life in Surulere.  I wonder if Baba Odu Bookshop still exists on Adelabu Street.  
  6. When I watch classic Nollywood movies, every neighborhood looks like it's my former neighborhood.  I can't prove it sha.
  7. I am a Yoruba woman, but I don't have that annoying "H-factor."  To God be the glory!
The "H-End"

Well, not quite.  I have to nominate other bloggers and link back to them.  So, here goes:

LOL @your answers.

I agree with you, I don't know how Myne does it! She's one inspirational blogger..

Baba Odu! Most of my school books came from there.. Unfortunately I don't know either if it's still there. I lived in Surulere as a child :-) xx

1 + The One

Congrats relentless builder on your award. I agree with you, Myne is superhuman!


lmao@agbalumo flavoured gum. Your sense of humour slays me every time. Congrats on your award and thanks a lot for passing it on. You just made my day *preens*

congrats once again dear!


Hahaha on the shaving, really? OK, we all have our pet peeves, but know ye that I do not shave my legs, hahaha...

lol I'm sure they all look like your old neighborhood... aww thanks!

Aww thank you! I will do this soon!


Chai! i died. But maybe the engagement was sprung up on her. And yes, i could have sworn every neighborhood in Nigerian movies looked like mine. You are not alone


Thank you Relentless. :) You are one inspirational blogger too (you know this already shey. hehe)

1 + The One: Yay! Another Baba Odu "alumnus" (Sorry I couldn't find another word). I wouldn't be surprised to find out that I actually know you. This world is small like that ehn ...

And yes, Myne is superwoman!

Toin: Lol! Yes now, create it and I'll buy it. Simple. You're welcome and thank you.

Myne: I used to not shave my legs but since I started, I haven't looked back since. The hair in the armpits though is non-negotiable.

Nollywood Reinvented: You know how all these suburbs in Lagos look alike. I think it's only when it is shot outside Lagos that it doesn't look that way.

You're welcome!

Nollywood Rave: Longest time!!! Good to see you here again :-)

I doubt that it was sprung on her o. They both looked quite prepared.

Thank God! I thought I was the only one who noticed the neighborhood similarity thing.

Michael: You're welcome o! Ah, ori mi wu ... Thanks o jare! Looking forward to it.
