Hello friends. Last night, I slipped back into Lagos, Nigeria.
It’s been ages away from blogging, no thanks to the mandatory three weeks at Wannune Camp and another ten days in Makurdi, sorting out stuff and making the days count. Amidst a lot of fun and work, I made sure to capture some of the moments in words and pictures. In a few weeks, you should start reading the series of short and interesting blogposts from my various experiences in Benue State so far. I am currently working to ensure they are ready in a very enjoyable format for you: dear friends and GN faithful.
In other related news, I had a feature titled “Long Story Short: What’s On Your Bucket List?” Published on BellaNaija.com on the day I left for the NYSC camp. Earlier today, “iJebu: Random Notes about Old Nokia Phones, Parachutes, and More”, a short selection of random notes about frugality and technology trends (particularly, phones) was published too.
Also, the “Nigerian Dream” edition (Issue 5) of Y! Magazine is out. Graced with a stunning photograph of Nigeria’s sweetheart, Genevieve Nnaji, it contains several interesting features and yours truly has an article in there as well as a website review. According to a press release on Y! Naija, “… in Bikes, Boats and Balls, ‘Gbenga Awomodu takes a trip through Luxury Lane, profiling Nigeria’s fine breed of bikers, golfers and boat lovers”.
I’m off to catch up on more news and do some blog-rounds. Will be back soon!
