Happy New Year joyful people of Kemi’s Blog land!!! My heart is so full of JOY and positive expectations for 2018! I see promotions, new streams of income, business expansion, new relationships, engagement & wedding rings, babies, celebrations, growth, and so much more in 2018! Do I hear an AMEN???

Hello 2018, I’m here for you!!!

Anyone who attended primary school in Nigeria would remember that every time we returned from a break/holiday, the very first English Language class assignment would be to write an essay on ‘How I spent my last holiday’. Right? So, in keeping with tradition, this blog-post is essentially a recap of how I spent my Christmas/New Year break in Lagos. I definitely need another holiday now – Jesus be an energizer!

My break started from around the 21st of December and it was marked by the arrival of my ‘started from Instagram, now we are real friends’ buddy – Dorcas (@wellwornheels). She came and literally turned my world upside down, lol.

Dorcas oh Dorcas!

Given that she had not been to Nigeria in a long while, she was on a mission to check everything off her ‘Naija bucket list’ and I was a very willing accomplice and chauffeur (aka professional driver). That bucket list had everything from food to eat (amala, boli, etc), shows/concerts to attend, places to visit and explore across Lagos.

We did a LOT of things and I will just try to recap some of the highlights. We started from the Joyful Joy Laugh Fest (a charity comedy event to raise funds to fight malaria) where I won the celebrity auction to have dinner with Lynxxx (see proof below, hehehehe). It was a lot of fun, for a good cause. We even got to see Yvonne Orji perform in person, plus we saw our favorite couple – Susu and Banky (and we got inspired to go watch The Wedding Party 2 the next day)!!

With Osas and the man Lynxxx (trust me he is smiling inside, lol)

We also attended the Adekunle Gold concert (#epic #legendary #amazeballs) and danced to our hearts’ delights. Mr Gold is GOLD! Finish!

The GOLD groupies 🙂
The GOLDen squad

I also behaved like a proper ‘I just got back’ and explored Lagos (Terra Kulture, Nike Art Gallery, Lekki Craft Market, etc) as a tourist on a tricycle (keke, tuk-tuk, etc) with a cool crew of ladies – it is always nice to make new friends and connect with old ones. My girl Nene wrote a fabulous review of the Keke Experience which you can/should read here –  https://www.nene-uwa.com.ng/2018/01/ajala-nenes-trip-keke-experience-lagos-nigeria

 

The Keke cool kids
The Keke Royalty kids with Mummy Nike (Nike Art Gallery)
Dancing in Lekki market, lol

 

Getting a share of the national cake, lol

We crowned the entire experience by watching the Fela & the Kalakuta Queens show. The show is incredibleeeeeeeee! If you haven’t seen it yet, you have one more weekend to do it ( 2 shows on both Saturday and Sunday at 3pm and 7pm) – don’t dull!!!!

Not a Kalakuta Queen but still a Queen

One of the highlights was getting to meet some of other Lagos-based travel bloggers and curators. Mehn, that was an experience. Each of these women are doing amazing things and I am so honored to have met them in person.

Power Travel Women (plus Lola’s strong unlooking game, lol)

From L-R (hehehe), we have Lola of @unravellingnigeria who has explored some deep places in Nigeria and the great thing is she takes people there; Dorcas of @wellwornheels who is an auditor by day, travel addict (with 40+ country stamps in her passport) and blogger by night; Fola of @folaswaka who may be low-key (for now) but guys, do not underestimate the tips and tricks she has under her hat; Yejide of @naijanomads who is all about curating adventurous experiences to green passport friendly destinations (international trips only – she has trips to Lebanon, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania and Morocco planned for this year); Margaret of @theajalabug who has been to places in Nigeria that most of us only know from our ‘states and capital’ citations from primary school!!! She also reviews hotels, resorts and restaurants; and then there’s me – you already know!

Yejide, Dorcas and I collaborated on the giveaway grand prize trip to Morocco – a true example of collaboration over competition. I am looking forward to spending more time with all these amazing ladies (and meeting more members of the travel tribe) this 2018, l’agbara Olorun (by the grace of God).

Giveaway collabo

My girl from business school, Lakheni, who is South African, was also visiting Nigeria for the first time and this time around, I was the one managing the bucket list (eat jollof rice – check, eat pounded yam – check, go to Nike Art Gallery – check, go to Lekki Craft market – check, attend a Nigerian show – check, get fat on plantain – check, eat small chops – check, hahahhaha.) You get the general idea of this bucket list now!

Lakheni the Lagosian (pounded yam & egusi, market bargains and Nike art)
At Ali Baba’s Jan 1st concert

The only thing we did not manage to do on the list was get her to eat suya – by the time suya was ready every day, we had eaten ourselves to stupor and just could not make space for any more food. I am so afraid to get on a scale now *covers face* This brings me to a very important question ‘why is suya only sold at night???”  If anyone can tell me, I will be forever grateful.

Different shades of Lakheni

We also took the opportunity to connect with other members of our class who happened to be in Lagos as well- my sister Tim-Tim (remember her from last Christmas?) and the man Ro-Ro.

Yes I went back to Nike Arts Gallery with my INSEAD crew
Class of 16J Naija reunion

What else did I do o? Yeah, I went to the Bez Live concert (again!) and it seems like I will be an annual attendee. As always, Oga Bez and all the other artistes that opened the show delivered exceptional performances. I found the ‘kiss cam/dance cam’ attraction super cool. I guess the kiss-cam didn’t bother coming near me because I was surrounded with my army of ladies, hahahaha!

Me and my Bez ladies!

I also managed to attend 4 weddings within 10 days – peep my wedding uniform shoes, lol. They are sooo comfortable and great for dancing! You know I don’t know how to sit still once there is music playing, so it is important to be in the right shoes for the job, lol.

Wedding 1 (Dec 16)
Wedding 2 (Dec 19) – I was wearing those shoes here too, lol 
Wedding 3 (Dec 23)
Wedding 4 (Dec 26)

It wasn’t all outings and outings o – I spent some time with family as well, made out time to meet up with some friends (older and younger), started building my vision board, carved out time to review my 2017 goals, wrote my thanksgiving letter for 2017 and then started setting goals for 2018. Some of my 2018 goals are pretty exciting – take professional swimming classes, take professional heels dancing classes, write for more blogs, revamp this website, speak daily affirmations over myself, kick off my modelling/brand ambassador career, and so much more!

With Mama K (please can you ask her to borrow me her shoes?)
With Brother K, lol
With Papa K

To be honest, I am yet to complete both my vision board and 2018 goals because I haven’t fully downloaded all that God is saying for 2018. Now that all the activities have calmed down, I am spending time in prayers and meditation for the next couple of weeks to ensure that my agenda is a 100% reflection of God’s agenda for my life. I don’t have time to be chasing shadows and expending energy on the things that are not in God’s plan for my life abeg!

The girls dem…
The men dem…
The aburos dem 🙂

Now, the biggest highlight of my holiday was actually not all of the activities listed above (even though I thoroughly enjoyed myself), it was the Christmas giveaway (#kemischristmasgiveaway) that truly rocked my boat in December. WOW! That was an experience and a half! I will write a separate blogpost on the lessons from the giveaway but I think it is important to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who participated. It would have been impossible without you all – thank you so much!

THANK YOUUUUUU!!!!

Remember in my last post, I said I was hoping to get 24/25 gifts so that I could give stuff out daily till the 25th of December? Well, we got MUCH MORE than 25 gifts! We ended up with 59 gifts in total!!!!! Am I hearing your WOW? Looool.  I am still saying WOW too!!! 59 gifts meant I had to give out multiple gifts every day and by the last day, we had a total of 120 winners!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!

It was truly a December to remember and I am thankful for all my experiences during the period. Now it’s time to go back to work to have some more impact and make money to fund the next holiday. Amen!

Grateful for these ladies who trusted me to make Lagos rock for them!

Have an amazing year people! Set (and smash) scary goals, connect with loved ones, forgive ya haters (I hear they are actually confused fans, lol), laugh at yourself, talk to God every day and live your best life. 2018 WAS AN AMAZING YEAR (yup, I have declared it and it is happening already!)

Kemi the Model 🙂 Did I nail the pose? Dont you just feel like buying that truck now?, Lol

Joy-filled hugs,

Kemi

    Firstly, darkness is one of the main ingredients of real suya 😂

    Apart from that main reason, I think the meat is bought daily (maybe, no freezer), so preparations don’t start until markets open, and then it takes a while.

    I have never lived in a house (in Lagos) that wasn’t walking distance from a suya spot. 😎😎

    Even though I’d see people there early, the suya ‘never done’ until later 😢

      Madam Suya has spoken, who are we to argue? Hahahahaha!!!! Darkness is an ingredient, osheeey!

      I agree and I am quite happy to hear about the rationale of daily meat preparation – don’t want no tummy ache because of rotten suya o.

    Happy new year everyone! The fact that I featured on this blog already points to the fact that 2018 will be awesome!!! About the Suya question, the abokis in my area sell suya in the afternoon o, but the funny thing is I never buy from them until evening/night time. It just feels weird eating suya in the afternoon 😒😒😒.

        p.s – yup, my graphics artist banned me from ruining HIS beautiful giveaway layout (I am sure you know all about layout matters) with my waka-waka, and I keep forgetting about IG stories..

    All in one Yuletide season? Well done. I can tell twas a fun-filled one.
    God bless you for the giveaway. Though I didn’t win in spite of my prayer points(I had to even go Assemblies of God way), I can tell God was pleased(which is what counts). People were genuinely joyful, blessed and inspired to be a blessing. I got to learn how Instagram works(yeah call me old school. Lol) and the opportunities that abound in it.

    Talking about suya, I am also waiting for that answer. But I am not sure I will buy it in the afternoon sha. More like drinking very hot tea at night when I am not ill. Secondly, have u had RAM SUYA? Its heavenly. Not sure where they sell it in Lagos but its big deal in Akwa Ibom.

    Great writing as always. May God bless you beyond you imaginations in 2018. Have a happy new year.

      I have heard of Ram suya but I am yet to taste of its divine greatness – can you import some from the Akwa-Ibom for us? Lol.

    Fun and inspiring read as usual Kemi. It’s great to know that there are a lot of adventures in our homeland if only we care to explore. I celebrate the travel bloggers (including you), you guys are digging deep into the treasures of the land and changing people’s mindset and perception.

    On goal setting, yes I finally got a board (Oh I mean Vision board..lol). I get to visualise my life goals (I had it in cardboard before now), then I am also working on the ones for 2018. The year is loaded with awesome/amazing testimonies and we are in for it.

    P.S Lovely pictures.. Send my regards to Lakheni.

    1. Kemi O - Site Author January 12, 2018 at 11:10 am

      Dear Busayo,

      Struggling with your vision board is better than not having one at all, so well done girl! I think you should consider breaking it into different sections (physical, financial, spiritual, career/business, ministry, health/wellness, family, social, recreational, community impact, etc) and then visualize what you want for each area. Taking it one section/area at a time might make it easier to tackle.

      Let me know if that makes sense and if it helps.

      Also, I have come to understand that these things evolve – so dont be afraid to change the things on your board as your vision/desires change. You can always paste something else on top of an old image, right? Or even remove the old image and put a new one. These things are not static.

      Above all, I pray that God opens your eyes to see welll beyond your current situation to the glorious future He has planned for you from well before the world was formed, in Jesus name. Amen!!

      Hugs,
      Kemi

      p.s now that the heavy stuff is done, please come say Hello if you ever run into me o! I will be putting up more posts about where I will be hanging out soon, so catch me when you can Cool?

    Hi Kemi!!!!

    So, I seriously love your blog and IG page. It’s by far one of the more authentic personal profiles out there. I like the gisty vibe it has.

    I’m also in the process of writing my 2018 goals (personal and business). Hoping to finish them by the end of the week and print and start redecorating my wall with it (wallpaper goals 🙂 ) . But I have already started some major daily goals tracking on excel which is already life changing!

    On that modelling and brand ambassador matter, I share a similar dream oh! Man must make the most out of everything there is to in this yolo of a life…….Man must be hot,,,,,,,,,,by fire, by force!!!!!!!…hehe

    I’m praying 2018 gives you everything God desires for you, which will exceed everything you are praying for. I can’t wait till you blow up as an ambassador. @Laisielenu cannot be the only one enjoying this life….xxx

    I’m such a huge fan. Absolutely love the gisty vibe of your blog. I think you have one of the more authentic personal IG/Blog profiles and it is such a breath of fresh air!

    I am also in 2018 goal setting mode. Already started some major excel goal tracking and it’s life changing! Looking forward to finishing up my vision board and life plan this weekend, and then printing before redecorating my wall with my goals! Wallpaper goals 😀

    Praying 2018 exceeds your expectations in every way, and you live your best life as the best version of yourself. Particularly excited about your modelling/brand ambassador dreams cause we share the same dreams! Can’t wait to see that happen for you!

    That was one full holiday. You def had a lot of fun.

    – So I’m also that girl that has a food-to-eat list when I’m in Lagos
    – Lack of carpenter is delaying my vision board o but now that I type I also need to work on layout and find the images I want to put up
    – Well done on the giveaway! I see a might you harvest for you and the other ‘gifters’. Btw, you taught me a lesson on excellence in the giveaway- re: getting a graphics designer, who did a great job by the way. You could have done sth more basic and it wouldn’t have mattered
    – At all your meet-ups and co, weddings, etc : you are such a Sanguine!!!
    – @ suya being sold at night – there are some afternoon suya spots although few.
    – Hope your modeling career kicks off this year!
    – Cheers to an amazing year!!!

      Thanks for such a comprehensive comment – you touched on almost all aspects of the post. Thank you so much.

      Oya let me reply you bullet
      + *side-eye* for food to-do list. I am struggling to burn those calories as quickly as I packed them on now 🙁
      + Lack of carpenter is not an excuse o! I agree with you that layout and images are step 1. Then, once you have it all, carpenters will start magically following you on IG, hehehehe
      + Thank you!!! And Ameeen to a mighty harvest – Amen!!! Awww, you noticed that I went extra on the graphics? Thanks so much. I am a firm believer in doing things excellently well – ALL THE TIME!
      + Retiring sanguine here o – its getting tougher to convince myself to leave my house these days, lol (or maybe its just Lagos sun and traffic inhibiting my greatness)

    First time on your blog, Kemi. And I must admit I’m hypnotized. I have read almost all of your old posts and I’ll be here when a new one is up!

    Pity I never got to have a chat with you at CITY Summer Camp in 2016. But grateful for knowing you from afar, and winning the @laidefash1 silky cuff shirt in the #kemischristmasgiveaway
    God bless you. Have a great 2018!

      Awww thank you Dunwene (sticking to using your IG handle name here)! I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed a lot of the posts and that you will be sticking around. It is GREAT to have you here 🙂

      Yaaay for winning the silky cuff shirt again! Patiently waiting for you to rock it and tag us, so we can all be jealous of your fine shirt one more time.

      Please we ever run into each other again, please please please, come say Hello and lets take a selfie at least . Deal?

      God bless you too and enjoy God’s best in 2018!
