celebrity takes 2 season 2 is over. it was fun while it lasted, although i didnt get to attend or watch as much as i should have....
yemi blaq was the champ..... good for him, he danced so well considering his size. and hes such a sweet,poetic and intelligent MARRIED young FATHER. he deserved it. (yeah i had to warn all the ladies, i hear they've crazy about him)
dance is serious business as i got to learn. its not easy and i've got a new found respect for dancers, especially the nigerain dancers. the 'celebrities' should be commended too, from the rehearsals i got to attend, all i can say is, if it was me, i'd slap my instructor out of frustration and walk out of the show. spirit of david and the ijodee group did really well. they got me questioning myself and my lack of talents i.e dance skills.
Thus i'm taking dance lessons. well thats what i said during the show, i arranged with one of the span ladies for private lessons. i've just been busy, in and out of town and maybe just a little bit lazy to follow it through.just the thought of driving to the dance studio in ikoyi gives me a headache.. but i will soon. shes going to teach me salsa, hiphop,ball room dancing, contemporary dance and all the fancy names....not like i really care about tango or ball room et co. i only love mentioning that i'll be starting a private dance class for the effect. maybe i'll get to follow it through.
it was fun backstage....the comedians that gave much laughter(i.e fred amata),i just loved to seat and entertain myself. lots of young talented people i got to meet from makeup artist to dance instructors, to designers. here are some back stage pictures from the few times i showed up.
day one...cameras were not allowed into the hall, i stole a shot:)
