Soaking In The Summer

Well hello wonderful people….

I have been gone for a long minute, I was adjusting to the blessings of motherhood to say the least but I am back, Yay! So summer is here and before I go back to work from my maternity leave, I did to go to the country side 2hrs away from Toronto, Lincoln to be exact. Its called Ball’s Falls Conservation Center.

This board as all the description about the conservation center

My son loved it too as it was so peaceful, the center charged a cover fee which is 8 dollars and 6 dollars for students and seniors. The working trail is about 2.1km to the upper falls and 1km to the lower falls, I struggled a little carrying my baby while hiking because its not so stroller friendly going to the upper falls that is. The scenery is fantastic and a lot of pure fresh air as you make your way up, there is also an abandoned building on your way to the lower falls, beautiful for your Instagram feed or for a family photograph hanging on the wall , https://www.instagram.com/bunmiamara/ follow the link to see what I mean.

The drive was about 2 hours and we got there by around 9.50am, the fall is quite large and aside from the sites can be enjoyed for a picnic, family cricket game or baseball and a wedding ceremony as well in my opinion. Here is a link to the fall to find all the necessary information you need to know https://npca.ca/parks/balls-falls . In all we had a great experience after all the cold winter days been wrapped up in blanket and using a heater it was finally lovely yo soak in the sun and walk outdoors without a winter jacket or rain coat. If you ever around Ontario and need a quick detour I did advice you go to The Ball’s Fall.

SO much beauty in one place

As a music lover and proud Nigerian, don’t expect less. we love to feel good, turnout and most of all dance. These are some random songs i think you should groove to, even though you don’t dance or move you could play these songs and feel good. Especially if you love the African rhythm and beats.  In no particular other……

Remy Ma Vs Nicki (shETHER)

Except you are not into hip pop, living under a rock and basically don’t care then you missed the biggest -dopest- intense and realest diss track released by Remy Ma on Saturday. Guys  Remy Ma straight bodied Nicki. #crying#, half of what Remy said on the track is debateable and the other half we know are factz.  Remy Ma showed us how the rap game should be, she had bars and rhyme. A couple of lines in the 7 minutes track includes…

And stop talking numbers, you signed a 360 deal
Through Young Money, through Cash Money, through Republic
Which means your money go through five niggas before you touch it
Any videos, promotions come out of your budget
Endorsements, tour and merchandise, they finger-fuck it
You make like 35 cents off of each ducat
I own my masters, bitch, independent
So for every sale I do, you gotta do like ten
Stop comparing yourself to Jay, you not like him
You a motherfucking worker, not a boss like Rem

Clearly, this got me thinking, if this is true then it’s a struggle these artist staying flossing on line but it’s really difficult out here. After listening to this track  for like the 100th time. we all have to agree that there is nothing Nicki can do or will do to recover from this unfortunately. Even though she claims to be the queen of rap, she hasn’t said anything significantly related to this whole beef which undermines every standards of her title and in the rap game, you have to be ready for a lyrical battle. you can’t dish it and expect not to get dished! So what started this whole diss you ask? its alleged that the least collab Nicki did with Gucci Mane got to Remy Ma, the song is called  Make Love. In the song she says-

I rep Queens where they listen to a bunch of Nas
I’m a yes and these bitches is a bunch of nahs
Tryin’ to win a gunfight with a bunch of knives
I win, get off the bench and give a bunch of fives
I don’t see her
Bitch I’m the greatest, no Kendrick and no Sia

Long story short,Nicki has been allegedly throwing a couple of jabs aimed at Remy Ma, but Remy done had it after this last  hence the 7mins diss track we have now. I wrote this blog this late because i have been waiting on Nicki to do something but the latest i got from her is picture with Future and herself on a music video set. So she just took a big L -(lose). On the flip side this type of healthy battles makes the hip pop and rap game fun as Nicki has had a long  smooth ride for too long as the top female MC for over 5years with no one challenging her.

What do you think? whose side are you on? do you care? is this good for the rap industry?

Remy Ma won though! the longest diss track ever.The track is below just incase you haven’t heard it. ENJOY!

Closer To Nature (Parapente Paraiso)

As my vacation comes to an end in Colombia sadly; i recently visited a little town called Sopo on the 13th of January in Cundinamarca Colombia. i visited this town sorely for paragliding- parapente in spanish. i was ready to go up in the air but the wind didn’t let me.i got there at 11am and waited for 3 hours to go up in the air but the wind was not blowing in our direction hence i couldn’t paraglide.

I got tired of waiting around,and started talking selfies and making short videos- lol. Did i mention how obsessed i am with landscapes and mountains views. I am closer to nature than i ever imagined, I love Colombia. lol
