Blogsville Idol

It is my pleasure to announce the upcoming blosgville idol. It promises to be tons of fun and will expose us to the vocal talents of some of our beloved blogsville ‘brethren’ (lol.. just needed something ‘b’ for effect)

Pink- Satin and Nigerian Opeke are the entertaining geniuses behind the idea.

Having said that, I have a bone to pick with the both of them!!!

I auditioned twice… and wasn’t chosen!!!

First, I treated them to a condensed version of ‘baby mi’ on my blog voice commenting thingie… then I went on their official page and sang a truly beautiful version of ‘I berieve I can fry’!!!
I sang these two songs in c-flat note with a soprano finish.


I didn’t eat fried food for 2 days in order to prepare the harmonica that is my voice for that audition.

I hate honey but I had it for breakfast on Wednesday to ‘smoothly saturate’ my vocal chords.

All that… and I didn’t get picked… so I vex!!!

I know the other contestants have bribed Opeke(who seems to have a thing for designer bags and ‘stringy underwear’ aka thongs) while pink-satin loves vacationing in metropolitan cities. I did not bribe them due to the fact that I have a spiritual and moral Ph.D and therefore don’t condone such behaviour(ok.. the real truth is that I haven’t started earning my pension and can’t afford these exorbitant bribes)

In fact since the advent of this blogsville idol, I have started noticing some things:
. Last night, as I was sleeping, I saw contestant Idemili chasing me in my dreams with a microphone and yelling my name

. Bobby Taylor has been mentally threatening me as well

. TaureanMinx has been begging me not to compete cos she truly wants to win as her blog-husband BabaAlaye promised to buy her an okada if she does.


Is it my fault that I have a voice which can make doves cry… ehn somebody please tell me… is it my fault?

Don’t worry… I’m not angry anymore now that I have gotten this off my chest


I love you blogsville idol… and I support you 100%…

BlogVille Idols said...

overwhelmed ati gburo e on our page today o..abeg tell 9ja dude too come and drop his song o

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

@Confused: My angel.. are you back.. I hope so oh cos I’m not a fan of this your recent disappearing act at all at all… miss u darling.. and yes you are first.. and for that reason I’m going to dedicate the song I’ll sing today on tminx’s blog to you…

@LondonBuki: you’re jealous because I can sing without an accent abi… you think it’s easy to be overseas ehn?! U know what… when I get home today… I’m going to sing a special song on this blog because I know my beeriful voice gives you goosebumps… I just might sing Elvis Presley for ur listening pleasure… even though I know you don’t recognize him… except it’s the ijebu elvis presley… Sir Shina Peters… lol

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

@Ugo Daniels: I heard that you’ve been commenting on someone’s blog asking them to email you my pictures. Is that true? I really would like to know cos it honestly would tell me a lot about your integrity if you could do that and come on my blog and laugh and joke like it’s all good. I would like to know cos it would be quite interesting if instead of asking me for my image(especially seeing as I’m anonymous and all), you ask somebody else to reveal my identity… not theirs… not yours… MINE. I really would like to know since when you became the ‘outer of bloggers’ (you know the supreme force that tells bloggers they can’t be anonymous whether they’d like to or not) If you really did ask someone to privately email you a picture of me… then I really would like for you to answer my questions…
Doesn’t one deserve to have some privacy? I mean I’ve seen and heard about dissecting of posts, disagreements and all that… but asking for a picture to be sent to you privately of someone you don’t know and who doesn’t want their picture shown… wouldn’t that be going too far?
Please Ugo, explain it to me like a 2 year old why it should be someone else’s place to email you pictures of me...

Ps. I would love for you to answer these questions publicly of course… no private emails or anything of the sort… cos if you did ask those questions on blogspot… it seems that you have decided that everybodys life must be lived on blogspot… so we can deal with it accordingly

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

@Bimbylads: lol this babe you are just a character… you just might be competing for the razzest Nigerian title with Buki and i… although everybody knows I’m in the lead sha… lol. I hope you’ve gotten the voice commenting thingie on ur blog so I can retaliate… I have a special song to sing for you my beeriful bimby bebe(said in an onitsha accent.. lol)…

@Idemili: come don’t rub salt in my already painful wound… I know they rejected me cos you paid some bribes… but don’t worry sha… I’m going to compete for and win season 2… is it not me again? Did I ever tell u the story about the lady who wanted to sign me on her record label at the McDonalds when I was in high school?

@ Nosa101: lol… sounds like you wanna sing self.. oya sing me some fuji on my voice commenter… maybe it will win you the heart of one disjointed babe self.. lol

@Pink-satin: this babe if not for the anointing on my person right now.. I for don vex… as in how couldn’t you choose me?!??! You saw the way I pronounced my r’s and my l’s in that audition piece abi? I berieve I can fryyyyyyyy… lol… I will definitely vote… love you angel.

@Lost-not-yet-found: come I think I’m beginning to develop blog feelings for u oh… the way you understand the violin that is my voice and defend me against all odds… in fact I think I’m going to audition u for a special position on my blog… are you down?! but please sometimes I wouldn’t mind if you call me ‘Nigerian Carey’ or ‘Instrumental Naija Babe’ cos u know I got it now…

@Tayo: my sweet potato… my only blog accountant and vocal manager… kilonpop?! The only reason I speak metaphors on my blog… wetin dey? Sorry oh my dear… I will reply them tonight or tomorrow… been busy doing a lotta things… some serious partying and kinikon kinikon… but we go yarn…

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

@Mimi: lol… yes that was my instrumental voice on tminx’s voice singing Nigeria’s other national anthem… yes it was me. Lol… I hope that friend of urs has great vocal talent oh… cos anybody that can’t sing in a flat notes for extended periods of time… me I don’t relate to them oh… its not easy being an award-winning vocalist… lol

@Papi: If somebody had told me that you were going to comment on this post and tell me that I can’t sing… I would’ve told them that it was a lie.. that they’re trying to break up me and you’s friendship… but the fact that I see your name here giving me this opinion especially in light of the fact that everybody else thinks I deserve a grammy abi is it Tony… my heart has broken into 24.566 million pieces… it will only take the best Suya money can buy to repair 24 million of it… oya get to researching!!!

Ps. Along with my first ‘political post’, I’m going to dedicate my first album to you… “To papi… my friend who dared me to sing”… lol

@Andy: I like your style… and I like the way you have defended me against some of those bad belle contestants(cough Nigerican, Tminx and Idemmili). Yes I can’t wait to sing that duet but you have to choose between Oliver D Coque, Shina peters and Uncle Ebenezer( I don’t want to sing about ride or die chick or ak 47 in the hood… I’m a Christian!!!)

@Azuka: lol… emi froggy abi? Did you know that I was a backup singer for Sir. Kokori Ebenezer in the 90’s?! Emi Overwhelmed froggy tones… you must be drunk on akamu Azuka… my dear I have 9 octave range… even Mariah shouted me out in her last album… she recognizes the genius that I am… shio!

@Mochafella: lol… you listened to my message on ide’s blog didn’t you… babe give me hope now… give me some hope… tell me I’m good… (no seriously… tell me I’m good… I just might have a pair of shoes your size that might find their way to your house if you tell me I’m really good… lol)

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

@Uzo: it’s ojoro… just like when Brazil won Nigeria in the worldcup… because they sent some lions to meet the Nigerian team anytime they came close to the net… it’s the same kind of ojoro at play here…

Tayo said...

Hey Overwhelmed, I saw your comment on my blog. I'm sorry o! I was real sad when I heard you weren't going to sing. Abeg, I'm sorry. I didn't want to interfere with producer's decisions. That's why I kept quite. No vex o

Ugo Daniels said...

I just got the link to this comment from someone. I never even knew you asked me something and awaiting my response. Well, in as much as I asked someone for your pic, it was done with the noblest of intentions. I was just playing around. No hidden intentions.

FYI, I’ve asked quite a number of peeps here for their pics and some have actually shown me. You'll be amazed as to the number of bloggers I have seen. The only issue here, as you rightly pointed out, is why I didn't come to you but went through your Ex boyfriend to ask.

What was I even thinking? I must have been drunk on something. Whatever do I need your pic for? Guess I was just curious. On dat note, I apologize for doing such. You know like they say, 'Peoples way of thinking are different' Apparently, I didn't think it as DEEP as you did, for warreva reasons, wish I did now!

About it having anything to tell you about my integrity is complete Bullshit. What do you need my integrity for? It's totally non-essential. The way you make it sound, an outsider will think I pointed you out to an assassin or something like that. If I remember correctly, dat comment was done eons ago, can't even remember when and now is the time you're bringing it up.

Who says you can't have your privacy. Like i always say, your blog is your turf, your inner sanctum, warreva. You can do whatever you like with it, none of my business.

However, since i can now see clearly that you have decided to always pick on things i do or say or whatever i act, either by commission or omission, I’ll do my very BEST to stay clear. I started blogging to have fun, not to be castigated at every turn. Whatever brought your beef with me?

Someone else would have presented this in a more subtle manner and jokingly press home some points which will even have more effect on the intended target. But…

As i said, if you felt embarrassed, harassed or exposed by me requesting for that, for reasons totally alien to yours, i offer excuse. However, i have one lil. advise for you, 'Hating people is like burning down your own house to get rid of a rat' And i will permit no man or woman to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him or her.

'Nuff said

Ugo Daniels said...

Oh! forgot to add, i'll also like to read it here on ya blog as i read your reply to my coment!

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Ugo Daniels: So I'm guessing it's not you that left the "Because er....er....er... er......*insert bullshit excuse here*" yesterday then… so I'll respond to today's…



Ugo… I don't understand how asking someone else for my picture could be done with the noblest of intentions…especially seeing as you apparently told the person that you didn't understand why the hell people chose to keep their identity secret as though they were terrorist bloggers (your words not mine)… and even when this person said they wouldn't post my picture… you asked them to privately email it to you. Look at this from any angle you please… and you'll realize that it wasn't cool at all…



I didn't say you had any hidden intentions or not… I'm glad for you that other people have chosen to show you pictures of themselves… but ugo why don't you ask those people how they'd feel if you chose to ask other people to reveal their identities… as opposed to them doing it themselves… especially if they have written a post or two about wanting to stay anonymous…



I'm not trying to be 'difficult' or 'different'… but ask anybody… your favourite blogger… your least favourite blogger… newer bloggers… older bloggers… it's just not done…



The stuff about your integrity is bullshit you think? Well so is asking someone for my picture without my consent…

I don't need your integrity… you don't need my picture… grass is green… the sky is blue blah blah blah



I make it seem like you pointed me out to an assassin or something like that?

No ugo dear… I don't think you understand… you started blogging a few months ago and from the first week or so, already had your picture up… I've been blogging for over 10 months… and the only parts of me anybody has seen are my legs and stomach…

Do I own a digital camera? Yes…

Do I have pictures that I've taken on it? Yes



Do I choose to show those pictures? No

Why?

Perhaps if you've read my blog… you will understand why… and if you don't… ask and I will gladly clarify

*I just don't want to*

Ugo… perhaps you are thinking of things I know nothing of… cos I have never picked on anything you said… you have left a couple of comments on a couple of my posts and I have always responded with utmost respect and good nature… I even spoke Igbo to you in a couple of my replies… I made jokes and goofed around with you like I do with every other person who comments on my posts…

I have absolutely no beef with you… so that was why I was surprised when someone informed me that you had been asking questions about my image and told me some of the things you had said to this person.

You came on my blog and commented on the blogsville idol post and I questioned you about what I had found out… because I honestly couldn't fake if I was mad at someone (shoot me.. I'm honest. by the post before that I hadn't found out… so I asked you immediately I did)

So I would love for you to please tell me exactly how you feel like I'm picking on you/the things you say… who's the 'victim' here?

Blogging is a beautiful thing of course… but we must obviously respect each other and treat each other the way we expect to be treated. In the 10 months I've been on this thing… you will not come across a single blogger that will tell you that I have infringed on their privacy or disrespected them in any way… and you won't be a first… I just wanted you to note something that I did not find cool… and so you don't do something like that again…

Ugo I presented this in a very subtle manner trust me… cos I can rant and rave with the best of them… chose not to because I wanted it to be civil… and also get my point across. I have absolutely no beef with you… just what you did… and I don't understand what's the castigation when someone tells you… hey mr. you did this and I don't like it… why did you do that? Read my comment again Ugo… don't get your heckles up… just read the comment again.

You said "'Hating people is like burning down your own house to get rid of a rat'… I might be interpreting this wrongly sweetness but from what I see you seem to be of the impression that I hate you… I DON'T! Whyever would I? Your other lil comment is showing you're taking this a bit seriously… permit you to hate me? You seem to have lost the entire point of this…

I heard an apology in your response somewhere… so it's been accepted… This little 'talk' we had is just another lesson learnt

Soul said...

WTF?

what the hell is going on in blogville?.

arrrgggghhh!

Tayo said...

Hey Guys, pls take it easy! There's enough drama in real life. Let's not bring it here. Blogs are supposed to be a getaway ... a place where we can write what we like how we like and when we like. There's not supposed to be hating for fellow bloggers. Abeg, make una no fight o. This is just a little misunderstanding. I'm sure the points are taken now. Pls don't take it beyond this. One Love ...
