Blogger and Makeup Artist Adenike Ogungbe Dies in Childbirth

Posted in: ,

I was saddened to read the news of Adenike Ogungbe's death, not because I knew her personally, but that she was a blogger, and had died in childbirth tugged at my heart. In her last post on her blog, she had written, "Its being a while, i've being off the radar for sometime now due to 'Nature's call'.

There have been quite a few sex stories out of the Big Brother Africa 2013 house(s).

You may know her as Lolita, or Naija Runs Girl, in fact her name is Mollie and she is a bi-racial Nigerian woman living in London. Her videos on youtube are either make up tutorials or comedy/satire on the lifestyle of girls who depend on older rich men for money, called reuns girls in Nigeria. In this video, Mollie showcases her mom who is just as funny and a great sport. They cracked me up several times :)

Posted in: , ,

Moving anywhere can be very daunting, especially when you're not going to be joining family or friends at your destination. When I moved here, I had Atala so it was easier, but when I moved from Nigeria to the UK I knew no one at all in Edinburgh, and though the masters programme was a stabilising factor, it was still a massive challenge.
