Got ya. What was going through your mind when you saw the headline? Hehehe, I know some people have a not so clean mind. *sips my cranberry juice*
Yoruba movie actress and producer, Mercy Ebosele is presently on a movie location in Oshogbo, Osun State.
The actress whose new movie, Ibusun is still selling fast, played the role of a tea seller in the new movie titled Eni Owo (working title). One of the factors of being a thespian is being able to play any role at any given time, in any given project, be it on stage or screen. See more photos below...
I guess she is saying 'E ra tea tutu e pa oungbe o' (Lol)
The Nigerian star actress has always been a head turner, with or without makeup. Mehn! She looked breathtaking in these new photos.
You just have to succeed and refuse to stop until you get to the top.
The journey to the top is often tiring due to many bends, pot holes, curves and bumpy roads, but the view from the top is mostly beautiful. It will be worth the while at the end of the day.
When you get to the top, be ready for false friends and true enemies; thy are the ones that will teach you how to be strong. Yep! Their dissapointments, false accusations and rumor will teach you how to develop thick skin for uncontrolled battle. At the end of it all, you will come out strong and victorious i.e if you stay to fight your battle, by not being a runaway soldier.
No matter how fierce the battlefield may look, make sure you succeed and always take it to the Lord in prayer.
Good morning folks. TGIF

Being a successful female entrepreneur in this generation is one task that requires perseverance, humility, hardwork, determination, can-do attitude, and of course, faith (yep). It takes a woman who believe in herself to be at the helm of decision making in this time and day. Y'all know how much I love supporting young vibrant entrepreneurs like myself *winks* which is the reason why I cornered Nigerian entrepreneur, Tosin Ajibade, the brain behind the popular Olorisupergal (blog/website) for a chat.
Ajibade recently made Nigeria's 100 most influential people list. She is an accountant turned blogger, she is a facilitator of many web/media training. She knows her onions in the blogsphere. In this not so brief chat, OloriSupergal opened up on her journey into the entrepreneurial world. Read our chat below and after the cut...
Who is Olori Supergal and how did you come about the name, Supergal?
Olori means Queen in Yoruba. I love royalty. Supergal came from the name Superman and it simply means you are capable to do anything.
Could you please tell us a bit about your background?
I am a Graduate of Lagos State University , Bsc Accounting. Pan Atlantic University, School of Communications in Media Enterprise. I am from Ekiti State.
How come you choose blogging over accounting, your course of study?
My Passion led to it. My passion for Blogging started out of nothing and no hope. I had a degree in Accounting and I was also working at that time, blogging came in between and that was it. I never knew it was going to be this big.. I never saw anything coming out of it but now we are building an empire.. Lol!!
How long ago did you become a blogger?
It's been six years now.
As a successful blogger, what is your success story like?
My success story started way back and I think it's been a part of me while growing up. The never say never spirit and continue until you get it. My success story on blogging and also being a Digital media strategist happened and it was never planned. I saw opportunities and I went for it. Everything I know today , I learnt them online. I never knew how to blog before I started but I learnt everything online from people who referred someone they know from some where and then we became friends. In this day and age, it is not easy to trust anyone you meet online and I was careful at that time while communicating with a lot of people online.
Seeing that what I was doing was becoming lucrative, money started coming in. When there is money, the passion must not die. Focus more on what drives you than the money and don't get me wrong, the money too is good but there should be a balance. I have tried everything I could while growing up to be an entrepreneur. Those who knew me back then in school and church knew I would always bring something new out and say BUY.
Getting into blogging wasn't planned it was like one of those things I was trying out and then it became the biggest thing that event happened to me. In my career, I have met with a lot of dignitaries and business moguls, this job has taken me far and wide, it has opened doors for me with Kings and Queens and I have also been able to carry people along with me despite all of this because one should not forget where he or she is coming from and that is important. I also understand we all need to be at the top but what happens when you need help from people, you still need to go back to those you started with. In my life, I have studied people and their success, most times when I talk about Kim Kardashian and her 'success' it is beyond the sex tape, it is them recognising what they can build out of it and become what they are today. they have an empire, they are always in the news and they know what they want which is CLEAR. If you ignore what they do bad and focus on their good then you will discover how smart the Kardashian family are.
My success is a journey and this is saying thank you to everyone who played a role in my life and business.
Now the blogging business is becoming stiff, everyone has to up their game and try new things but remember to stay winning.
What advice would you give to upcoming bloggers?
Just as we fans are eagerly waiting for the season 2 of one of the most popular new Tv dramas, Empire, we got surprised the series' co-stars, Trai Byers (Andre Lyon in Empire) & Grace Gealey (Anika Calhoun in Empire).

The two lovebirds met on the set of Empire and they set it off almost immediately. The rest is now history as they are both engaged to be married soon.
Congrats to the soon-to-be couple

The beautiful singer and hubby Tunji Balogun welcomed a baby boy today July 22. Congrats to the Doro Diva, may the arrival of the bundle of joy usher in more blessings for the family.
The first time I saw this picture, I had to grab a tissue cos I was cutting onions.
But seriously, the guy will make a good dad to the little girl and a good husband to is wife too. It takes a man with the fear of God and LOVE for his new family to do what he did.
