HELLO BLOGVILLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cant bliv im on here writing ish…im so syked about our prospective love affair….allow me to introduce myself---Miss LC -----from here onwards I will be your guest correspondent on this random ish, joining my best mate to write what will be the coolest blog ever, aka the next bella!!!!
A brief introduction about myself, I love bee almost as much as I love food, I love music and FASHION, im a jand grad who just relocated back to homeland and experiencing/re-adjusting to life in metropolitan Lagos. Let me give a heads up right now of every prospective writer on here im the least literal. Finance is my ish not Literature so no Thisday dreams from this sister…World bank presido maybe..hehehe. I guess im just trying to warn you not to expect any amazing articles..Its more like random banter ...Now that’s settled, down to the post .
I just wanted to share my tots on females and their prospective toasters diction. You know ladies, the way you want your fella to sound when he whispers sweet nothings in your ear in the middle of ish (ya’ll must be thinking ish is my fav word rite? needn’t worry it’s an MI faze)
So for you sisters across shores this particular issue might not necessarily be an issue for you. However for a sister recently relocated to Gidi with a fairly decent diction /accent, I have been approached with all sorts. Fellas feel the certain need to put up fake accents that makes them end up shelling at the end, I mean imagine ijebu/ogbomoso Yoruba trying to be Prince Harry(no offence my Yoruba peeps ….you know I luv my Yoruba fellas…dark chocolate fellas..lol) THAT ISH IS SHA NOT RITE!!!!!!!!!!…
Or the ibo spare parts seller shouting Hey secxy!!!! From his tokunbo range sport thinking that makes up 4 it…SO NOT RITE….Then the Hausas, ill leave that to bee to explain that one seen as she is 1 of them. Anyways this tot came to me today mainly cos my newest fan really shocks me …for a Nigerian trained graduate as per not a jand or yankee grad his diction is actually amazing!!!!..he articulates his words just rite ..ok ok I know the fact that he is Fineee also makes it amazing ..but it is, I mean he uses just the right mixture of high end vocabulary as well as basic terms…which is a welcome relief from the through their nose fake accents unilag grads thro your way.
Anyways what bad diction experiences have you had???? Don’t be shy share we do not judge on here.
Ps: rhythm fm is truly outdoing themselves tonight we have oldies from Wayne wonder to shakadamus and plieRs….if music be the food of life……..
Miss LC signing out..xoxo
