So the AMVCA (African Magic Viewers Choice Awards) 2016 held yesterday, and i tuned in to watch the show. I missed out on a little bit of the red carpet appearances and interviews though, but i watched the rest till the very end.
I loved the fact that there were some people who dressed in traditional attires .... I especially loved Blossom Chukwujekwu´s ensemble.
Anyway, this post is about my favourite looks of the show, so here they are in no particular order.....well, after Linda Ejiofor, the rest are in no particular order....
|Here´s a full-sized picture so you can see her gown better.|
|Mercy Aigbe looked like a QUEEN!! She came to slaaaay!|
|Osas Ajibade made me gasp out so loud when she came onto the stage with her husband to present an award. I was like "This IS a beautiful, beautiful gown!"|
I also loved her hair-do . Her makeup was done by Doranne beauty.
|I actually came across Annie Idibia´s picture on Instagram after watching the show. Her dress was amazing!|
I also loved her makeup....done by Anita Brows
|I don´t think this picture did Genevieve Nnaji justice.....she looked divine!|
|I totally love Ebube´s skirt , it´s gorgeous! Her makeup was done by Bethsaida Makeovers|
Rukky Sanda looked lovely too.
|You know........i really liked Kemi Adetiba´s unconventional suit by Mai Atafo.|
So those were my best looks. I was elated when ´DRY´won the movie of the year award. As innnnnn!
Falz, Chigul and Frank Donga were really funny. I thoroughly enjoyed the show.
It´s Mothers day! *Yaaaaaaassssss!*
So i showed my kids my mum´s picture in my phone, and the following conversation ensued:
ME : It´s mother´s day today. Do you know who my mummy is?
MISH : You have a mummy? *That girl´s facial expressions are priceless!*
ME : Of course i have a mummy! *and so i show them a picture of my mum*
DINDU : But that is our Grandma! *Mish nods in agreement*
ME : I know she´s your grandma, but she´s also my mum.
Mish looked at me as if to say "How can you say you have a mummy? Didn´t you fall from the sky?"
I don´t understand how they don´t believe i have a mummy. We have had this conversation before, and they have been taught about grandparents at school...they even have ´Grandparents day´, so why is it strange to them that their mummy has a mummy? *loooool!*. The last time we had the ´Mummy has a mummy´conversation, the way these kids laughed at me ehn.... To them, i was a huge joker! *They were like ...´You have a mummy ko! You have a mummy ni!´*
They know my mum as their grandma. When they see her pic in my phone, they are like "That´s grandma!", but there´s no way she can be my mummy....it´s inconceivable to them!
Please do your kids know that their grandparents are actually your parents also? My husband says that they will get it when they are a little bit older....oh well.......
Happy Mothers Day to all mothers, Mothers-to-be and anyone playing the role of a mother in anyone´s life. May God bless us all and continue to grant us the wisdom we need to bring up these little ones He has entrusted in our care.
Have a lovely evening...
