Hey guys! I'm super excited to present to you a brand new second installment of #JohnnysRoom. For this one we did an Owl City Cover and I think you'll love it. We are bringing #JohnnysRoom somewhere close to you very soon. Link to the full video is on my bio. @mavinfilms.
God knows I have listened to this song more times than any other song this year.
I had always looked forward to working with @aphrodija since 2015 and she was gracious enough to bless this song with her beautiful voice. Aside #RomeoandJuliet I don't think I've worked on any song this extensively, it had to be perfect I've also never had more live instrumentation on any of my songs than this too. This is an achievement for me and I can't wait for you guys to hear it
Some of you may have noticed I didn't have my 'signature' hair at some point this year. Well, I had a terrible condition called fungal infection that slowly caused my hair to break, creating scanty patches on my scalp.
Around January I noticed I had flakes on my face but didn't pay it any attention until it spread to my scalp and ears. I probably got it from a barber shop or hotel bedsheets that weren't properly washed. I would spend the next two months assuming it was dandruff and trying to treat that. I saw that I was losing a lot of my hair and it was then I realized it wasn't at all dandruff but something terrible.
I had a dermatologist check and he diagnosed it as fungal infection and prescribed the drugs.
Treating it has hands down been the hardest thing I've done this year. I had to shave all of my remaining hair to properly treat it. I can remember leaving the barber shop with my friend Obji and hating the guy I saw in the mirror, me. I was going to stay indoors for the next few weeks and go out only a few times aided by face caps and hats. I dreaded taking tablets prior as I'd rather just let my immune system fight whatever I was down with, but this time it was inescapable, I had to take dem pills. Treatment also didn't come cheap, a Terbinafine pack of 14 tablets sold for NGN17, 000 and I must have have taken around 6 packs of those. One mistake I made was not being faithful to dosage; at times I missed a dosage and woke up to more fungus on my face and hair the next morning. Another mistake I made was not correctly diagnosing it but assuming it was nothing serious.
Last week I took the last tablet of Terbinafine and I can now boldly say I'm totally free from that stubborn fungal infection that plagued me the most of this year. I also learned to take medication by myself (my mum or sister would usually force me to take pills then ). It's a pretty boring story but I wanted to share it so in case you experience something like this or anything suspicious, you should take action asap and not wait for it to get out of control.
P.S. Don't let this picture mislead you, I was not so fine without my hair
Sometimes God doesn't have to cause good to come to you, you're only just reaping the harvest of what you planted. God made the world to function that way. A little act of kindness can be as simple as giving a lost stranger directions, or helping the old lady or some little kids cross the busy road.
Sometimes it's harder to do, but do it cos you should and not cos you want something in return. It sha will come back to you in other ways in the end. I'm certain of that.
I've been scared of flying since February when an aircraft I was on landed in Port Harcourt instead of Lagos due to heavy downpour. We were so close to touchdown but the pilot couldn't stabilize the plane and he suddenly took the plane up again. We went round and tried to land again but it was even worse conditions. There was way more turbulence than usual and we went in circles for over an hour before the pilot decided it was better we headed to Port Harcourt before we ran out of fuel mid air . I was scared as hell I could have pee'ed myself. Everyone was screaming and praying, it was like watching one of dem plane crash films.
On that flight I had told God that if we landed safely I'll never fly in a plane again.
As we landed it was like Nigeria won the World Cup, we were all happy to alive.
Scariest day of my life!
Sorry to bother you again with my kitchen problems.
I realized I've been eating the same three kinds of food since I moved to Lagos; been eating just Rice, Beans, Egusi/Semo, and the occasional noodles over and over. I dunno if that's very healthy dieting.
Well, I'm going to the market now (I usually do so at night) and I'm wondering what other easy-to-make food I can cook so I can get the right foodstuff from the market. Thanks in advance . EDIT: I finally got sweet and Irish potatoes, unripe plantains, vegetables, eggs, fresh tomatoes. For tonight I'll try to make egg sauce with dem potatoes. I also took screenshots of most of your suggestions for future reference. Thanks for all your help. You guys rock
