Soundtrack of the moment: Flavour’s ’Black is beautiful’
I think long and hard and have always heeded to my own wise words to continue to find more creative and engaging content for YOU my audience, far beyond the fickle realm of fashion & beauty-No pun intended though. I aspire to inspire through my works; not to seem so opinionated as to shove my ideas down your throat. But with the increasing quest and unflattering desire for perfection I dare to air my own views and give my own fair quarter to society .This post was born after my stay at Jos where it seems the people in that particular demographic are not yet in tuned with what other ’exposed’ part are into.
I probably could say ignorance is bliss but on this subject I make no mistake to assume for them; they are very much entuned. I took a stroll one evening and quite a few people that passed us by, I had to exclaim more than once and my friend asked “what’s that ?” I replied coyly “mehn that girl is really dark, all these white people will see her and be bound by instinct, nature to discriminate without even knowing it”. He sighed and said “well these people are really dark”.
Now playing: Bruno Mars ft B.O.B-Beautiful girls
The street corners filled enchantingly with someone constantly signaling at you as “Nwanyi Ocha”(fair lady) which puts our mind in a swirling mood as ME? and then leaves a thought lingering in your head “am actually fair oh”. I should do something more. What was generally considered as pretty back in the days lies in the colour of the skin .Applause and more rounds of applause to all those who has stood strong against the tides and didn’t succumb to this siege.
