Michael Jackson (THE GREATEST OF THEM ALL) tribute, featuring M.I (Mister Incredible…..Nigeria’s most talented rapper)

27 Jul

Hey everyone,
Image Hosting sorry it’s taken so long to blog, But I have been hella busy,Work started almost the moment I got out the airport. But before I get to that, this post is my Michael Jackson tribute, I’ve been wanting to do one but I wanted it to be good, one I felt was worthy of the ‘King’. His death hit me really hard, harder than I every imagined it would, I found myself randomly bursting into tears for atleast 3 days after he died, even now I can barely see him on TV without having to supress my emotions. I don’t think I was ready, I don’t think the world was ready to lose him, and I feel like I should have done more to support him when he was alive, not sure how but I just wish I had done more to actively support him and show how much we appreciated him……He was just such an embedded part of our world and our lives, don’t wanna go on about this too much, cause trust me I could……..but I will say this….. There truly will be no other like him……R.I.P MICHAEL, WE LOVE YOU, YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT….. THIS ONE’S FOR YOU xxx

So I had a photoshoot with “the Kanye west of the West” The very talented ‘Mister Incredible’. For non-Nigerians who might not know who he is, he is the latest rapper to take Nigeria and Africa by storm, his music is absolutely phenomenal and I must say he’s a pretty great guy, very big personality but also very humble, and he kept me laughing all through the shoot, I had a really great time working with him, and we got along so well he wants us to work together again, so will keep you guys posted on future M.I shoots. Here’s a link to his music video ‘safe’ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUXsuObsmqk, absolutely love this song, EVERYONE SHOULD REALLY CHECK IT OUT… This shoot was for a magazine cover, i can’t say which yet, but I’ll let everyone know when it comes out, It was a Michael jackson tribute shoot 🙂
I can’t show the pictures yet, obviously, till the magazine comes out, but I did take and edit one to share with you guys, here it is … Hope everyone likes it 🙂

So after M’I’s shoot, I threw on my M.J salute ‘get up’ and had a minishoot of my own with him for my ‘King of Pop’ Tribute 🙂 But back to other things, a lot has passed since I’ve been back,

Image Hosting my birthday has come and gone, it was on the 20th of July, and I had a fabulous time, I had a little get together at this bar called ‘churasco’ and they make the biggest meanest cocktails you ever saw, All my favourite people showed up and I had a very memorable night, A big thank you to everyone who came to spend my birthday with me, I had a really fabulous time….took loads of pics, but I literally have not had time to upload them unto my computer yet, when i do, il try to put a few up here …….Thank you also to everyone who called, messaged or reached out to me in any form on my birthday, I really appreciate it and I felt very loved on my birthday :). A huge bearhug to my sister Abi, who gave me my present long before my actually bday and who has just been my support system in all things, thank you so much sis, I love you more than anything 🙂 xxx

Work has also been keeping me really busy, thus the long break between blogs 😦
I did the Koko mansion shoot and that was loads of fun, the pictures are all done now and they came out really beautiful, The girls look so beautiful you might barely recognise them when the pictures come out, the pictures will be in next month’s ‘HI MAGAZINE’ So everyone don’t forget to grab a copy. I’ve also done some other shoots and have some coming up that I’m not at liberty to disclose at the moment but you can trust I’ll keep you guys posted a soon as I can 🙂
