|waiting for my jellof rice Lol|
The truth is that I have been busy taken care of the home front and my babies, yes I am a proud mama of three for those of you who do not know (now you know). Like every working mum out there we know it’s not easy balancing being a mom and work, I thought I had everything under control until I started this blog thingy, it’s not easy but I am beginning to get a grip of it, I call it my moment of disconnect I can’t explain the phrase now I guess I have to leave it for another day.
My past weekend was not so eventful, it started with church (choir practice). I got a VIP ticket Pass for the IAMA so I was obliged to go because it wouldn’t be fair if I don’t show up.

The event started by 6pm and I got there at about 5 mins to the end of the event (10pm) not because I was trying to be a diva, even though I wouldn't mind being one for a day (Mariah Carey and Jlo come to mind) but I had to put God first. Left church at about 8.30pm to Old town which is quite a distance only to discover I had forgotten my VIP pass at home can you imagine how I felt? I had two options drive home to get the VIP pass or pay 50euros at the gate for a new one. Instantly members of my thinking faculty (in my head) went straight to work and after much deliberation we settled that that Primmy (me) should drive home to get the pass and drive back to Old Town by the time I finish all these waka time don go.
Like I said I got to the event 5mins to the end of the award so I really don't have much to say, all the same I had mad fun, loved the venue, loved the energy there was a good mixture of Old and young people I felt so comfortable and not out of place, very nice I also met old friends, did some networking, asked question about the event like did Awilo perform who and who won awards I got all the information I wanted but the two that made me frown was that the Acts from UK did not perform and hearing that the organisers changed the name of the awards from Irish Africa Music Awards to Irish Music Awards are you kidding me who does that? I know it’s not my business but I honestly thought that the essence of the award is to celebrate African entertainers doing extremely well in Ireland, then why remove the Africa? I would like to talk to the organiser about this issue because I still don’t understand the reason behind the change, Yinka over to you.
