IDOL '08 - *Shsh Simon*, Mz 30+ is talking


Are you ready for this?!

You know how I like to sing and praise Baba God every time I start typing a post, like right now that I am reflecting and singing that "he is the true Baba Ara ti o mo iyi omo" (the true father of wonders who cherishes his children).

Well y'all be hearing my skentele voice throughtout the Blogville Idol competition becasue

Mz 30+ is the HOST for Blogville Idol 2008

Thank you, thank you for those who are smiling with joy for me, and for the rest, skontolo your ears.

I have checked the rules, nothing stops the host/hostess from bursting a tune every now and then - lol.

Tell Simon Cowell, his job is not safe...........

Ok excitement down, I am thinking oh my goodness

What am I gonna say?
Should I phonetise
Or naijarise?
Or be very serious?
Or try to be funny
Or be razz?
Or all of the above 'cos I am a mix

I don't know mehn, but pray for me just like every other contestant.

I am not singing but I'm still kind of NERVOUS.

OK Tarry Plus, 1 mug of camomile tea and breathing exercise coming up.

isha said...

Nice, I've done my share of hosting faux pas. So one time we were having our African Cultural Night while I was still in college. I got on the stage in this very nice booboo my mum had given me. I gave the President's opening speech etc etc. When I got 'back backstage'. I received a text from my best friend (a boy) - "I can see your underwear..."

So, some small shelling would be overlooked don't worry.

30+ said...

@UCS, You have heard, shikena

@Tairebabs, I am thinking to myself, no pressure shey.

@Bumight, mail sent with T&C to hear me sing.

@Lg, as long as you keep your laff under wraps, I will remix, merix and even obelix 4 u.

@Oluwadee, ok mixing coming up.

@GNG, my voice great?!

@Darkelcee, me I know you gat my back you will even shell with me to make me feel better.

@Jaycee, Well you are about to find out. Don't start tripping yet
