Genevieve and D'banj: True Or A Ruse

Two weeks ago, I was going through my profile in one of my numerous social websites, when I came accross an information that would become a bomb, literally speaking, in the entertainment industry;

Genevieve is dating D'banj, D'banj confirms it!

What?!! was my first thought. these journalist are at "it" again writing so they can make a few bucks. How could someone publish such rubbish? It can't be true. Salt and oil can't mix or so I thought. A week later when Genevieve was asked to confirm the news she neither confirmed nor denied the claim made by D'banj. She was quoted by Encomium magazine  saying:

"I can only say that I would like to keep my private life private and I really don't have anything to say"

and "Dbanj is an adult and he has said something. Let's just leave it at that, "







Surely, we  your loyal fans deserve some answers, Genevieve. We don't mean to pry into your private affairs but we care for you and we are dying of curiosity to know how you a "good girl" met "The Kokomaster" who can also be called a "bad boy". If you can recall, when you were rumoured of dating the then Vice President, Atiku Abubakar we didn't believe them, if when uyou werspotted with "the new Jeep", we were on your side fully, I might hard because we believe that you are more than that.

Personally, Genevieve's life is a part of my inspiration, my first role model . Infact, my pen name;Jenny was derived from her nickname Genny. Her  way of life, glamour the way she acts, gosh is so "coool" to me down to the way she disses journalists who tends to "ask too much" about her way of life.

Now, we need an affirmation or denial plus we'd also want to know if it's real and mutual. we heard she even apeared in D'banj's new video "fall in love". Should we call you guys "D'banjieve" that is the new Brangelina?

Countdown

Have you ever wondered if the decisions you're about to take is right or wrong? That's exactly how I'm feeling right now. It feels like being snared in a trapped not knowing which way to go, right or left.

I'm counting down to the day I'll finally say goodbye to having a job. I have a wonderful job which I'm about to drop.So far, it hasn't been easy a decision to make. I had to use the paper, pen and ruler method, weighing the advantages and disadvantages. From where I stood a few weeks ago, it was clear, now it's not too clear. I can't help thinking if I'm about to take one of the best or worst decisions of my life. 


While deciding, it turned out the positives of this change overshadowed the negatives. So here I am, 15 days to having no job and being a business woman.I just updated my status on facebook about being unique and different. Let me ask a question. How many twenty two year female Nigerians lives in lagos, has no "big daddy" or boyfriend to support her? Yet has a job and is willing to quit it to face an "unknown future" I'm proud of myself and how I turned out. I don't regret anything thus far. I call them experiences because they teach me to teach others.

So I'm going to put on a brave face and face the coming times ahead.

Yahoo! Rooms

Was bored last afternoon, so I decided to join a yahoo chat room. Signing in to yahoo messenger took me no time at all. Ignoring my offline messages, I went straight to Yahoo Messenger joining, the 20's chat room but was dumbfounded by what I saw:

"Honey women see me live on my webcam"    and
           " how to find free sex online"

Eyes poppingI left the room immediately. Checking other rooms I found the same results. Eeeeeeh, where can I find Tru talk without sex? I wondered. Guys and girls wanting to be laid are everywhere. I don't want to be laid, I fumed, I just want to talk. Just talk.

I remembered an experience I won't easily forget. Late last year I met someone online. I'll call him Rob, a Nigerian. I felt lucky we'd talk on phone and online. We talked about everything. Then out of the blue he wanted sex online or on phone. I was disappointed. To cut the story short, we decided not to continue. 
The experience was quite illuminating. I felt i was from the first century, someone who doesn't know what's going on(I still feel so). It's not encouraging at all. What wrong in chatting about politics or sports(am a very good sports fan) I don't hide it. I love being informed and I'd want to get infos anyway I can; reading and meeting people inclusive, even those ones i don't know.
What about youngsters who chat on the net? I couldn't even begin to imagine what they're exposed to on the internet.
 On social networking site I've visited so far, only few don't talk about sex or hooking up. Recently I'd complained to  friends about receiving creepy e-mails and texts which they'd replied with reproaches "it's your fault. why leave or give your contact details to people you don't know?"
