Cameras

Hello Beautiful People.

Please enjoy Mr. Alariwo himself ranting… Cameras by @Ayob_


 

 

 

 

 

OK! I know we all love these pictures right?

Yeah I love them too 🙂 but does this mean everyone should carry a
camera around the neck, even when you are not aspiring to become a Pro
Photographer, even if you are aspiring to be one, should you now
carry it about 24/7?

Basically in Nigeria we bastardize things, for instance let’s talk
about twitter… Nigerians have carried it on their head… the site was
meant for interacting, entertainment, marketing and also to spread
info easily.

Now we have things like:

“I must have 1000 followers this month” or arguments like “how many
tweets do you have sef ?” or “I have more followers than you do” or
threats like “if you don’t follow back I would swear for you” In my
school (cu) or let me say the school I went to

Yeah! I AM GRADUATING TODAY (June 29th,2012)

Yay!!! … Trends in cu are so annoying & Trendy ^_^ let me re-cap

My year one… paratrooper’s outfit were the order of the day.  A friend
of mine once used it to safe land from the 4th floor when the popo
(revo) came searching when he was stabbing one of the chapel
service(s)

My year 2 was a great transformation as TM- shirts or let me say
“tails” were the trendy trend. The want and need to be known or in
lame man’s term “among” made people like my classmate Rotimi telling his
tailor “Broda Karma” to sew him a shirt with tail tagged and named TM
Lawal

My year 3 was a weird and PRETTY sad one as the sexuality of our
male gender gradually drifted to that of the feminine , skinny
trousers, sling bags and flowery shirts were the must have of the
session

“Farok the great” stole his sister’s flowery shirt, skinny pants and
sling bag and started feeling fly with them… unfortunately she is a
size 6 and in female sizing u can call him a size 8 or maybe 10
sef…Huh? how he managed to wear it all along I don’t know Even thick
guys like “Sunday” followed this trend *imagine the sight*. Thank GOD
for our DSA at the moment who stopped the madness the next session…
S/0 to Mr. Muyiwa Fadugba

The other time, a dude used his shoelace as his tie all because he
just had to follow the ‘slim tie’ trend… blushes by ladies is another
very serious thing that should be tackled… aha ahan you are BLACK so
why a thick red blush again *confused smiley* . Sighs* DonJazzy
started the Pyjamas madness but hello he is a celeb + he had a reason
for it (thou the reason was stupid sha), but cu boys decided to carry
it on their shoulder. Chukwudi the other day was even wearing a every
transparent one, his red boxers was showing… I’m sure it was a sewn
pj smh!!

My year 4 *sighs* a very expensive one… I had to sell all my clothes
and shoes just because I wanted to buy an 18 inches Brazilian hair
(150k) for the classy “senator’s daughter” girlfriend of mine -_-.
You see want happens when you go for the upper class of the society. I
also had to buy a copy of the Beats Headphones (40k) for my Stolen
itouch (free) … thou I was not into sound engineering or anything
music related … Huh, am I stupid? Nooo!!!! It was a fashion/technology
trend *Big Grin*

Now my year 5.. the Ipad…*sighs* I almost sold my younger brother so I
could purchase this, ladies so much flocked around a dude with the iPad
n I wanted to be that dude 😦 ….then it was the whole Vintage/ Colour
Blinding Blocking ish … My friend Ozozo had to wear his 6years old brother’s trouser in
order to achieve the whole jumpy trousers stunt to it… then Ankara
trousers, I actually think this is a good concept and all ,because I’m
all into African effect and all but CU boys can’t just allow something
be sha… Imagine Ankara trousers with a Red Suit and yes what’s with
boys and weird colours imagine a Purple, Pink, red or even lemon
trousers and now it’s hanging professional camera around… Have you
weighed those cameras, soon you neck would be Gym(d) up . I saw Tunji
at ikeja and he specifically at the shop i saw him told them that he
wanted to buy a SPOILT Professional camera… y ? so he could add it to
his daily dressing accessories I guess 🙂  .

Be Trendy, not just because it is trendy, but because it fits you or
suits your person, body or personality and if it doesn’t move on to a
better trend or better still start your own trend J

I tell my friends when they yab me about my style or pattern of life..
“ I define fashion and my way of life Jor “

CONGRATS TO ALL GRADUATING SET OF 2012

What C.U Has Taught Me..

Hello Beautiful people.

So, my brain has been on some sort of Hiatus for quite a while… every time I put my pen to paper or try to type something, it’s all banality. I’ve missed a lot of opportunities to write articles in some school magazines because of this. So I thought to try something to wake up my dear brain up…

And this is where you come in handy, where, you help poor ol’ me.

It’s a challenge… You give me any title to write on, no matter how random, I have to write on it.

I’ve gotten a couple already…

Yesterday, @sisi_Ope challenged me to write on “What CU (Covenant University) has taught me”.  You see I don’t exactly like to write about my school.. but since I’ve been challenged.. O well

I put the question(What has CU taught you?) out there to my awesome followers on twitter.. (That reminds me, Follow me ^_^ –> @ObaFuntAy) I got some remarkable replies as you’ll see below.

PROLOGUE

How it all started…

So I put the question out:

so apparently, our parents haven’t wasted money, I mean see, we’ve been learning a lot from school…

and some people had just learned too much to say….

others still had these to say….

…and for those that go home every weekend, here is what they learnt:

What’s wrong with this tweet:

Found out yet? …

************************************************************************************************************************

For me, CU taught me one major thing amongst others…

Know your school’s anthem, you could be asked to sing it during your Project defense. No jokes! I was asked to do this, after the first line, I started humming. x_x

To be honest, my school is a fun place to be… I mean see all the fun things we’ve learned. ^_^

Make use of the comment box! Challenge me, any title!! and tell us –> What CU has taught you???!!!

Enjoy.
