Litty with 6LACK 🎶

Hello Hello Hello,

So on Tuesday, November 14th DeeDee finally went for her first concert yayyyyy

First of all, I have no idea why I’m talking to y’all in the third person. I guess the excitement hasn’t worn off yet, my roommates are excitedly waiting for it too, trust me.

I had purchased the ticket in October and they were $82.85 CAD in total because I got two tickets. Well, the doors were meant to open at 8 pm at Rebel, however, at this time Daisy (my roommate) and I were still in the uber to get there.

Finally, we arrived at 8:20 pm and stayed on the line for approximately 15-20mins before finally getting into the venue. By this time, nothing was going on so we decided to use the washroom to while away time. Just as we were making our way out of the washroom, we heard screams and I turned to Daisy saying “wowwwwww I’ve already missed my first concert” Yep! I’m so dramatic. Luckily, it wasn’t actually 6lack (Pronounced Black), it was the opening artist – Sabrina Claudio

In the midst of her performance, Daisy and I were struggling and pushing our way through to the front lol, this wasn’t that easy but we made it. She performed for approximately 45 mins but to be honest, that’s not who I went to see so it felt like forever!

Then boommmmmm it’s 6LACK! Like at this point, I’m screaming my lungs out and it feels like a dream.

He addressed the reason behind his album and why it was called Free 6lack. The album to him was basically about him freeing himself from being stuck in various situations in the past. The performance eventually started in a planned out way and after a few songs, he left to rest I’m assuming, but then it all got better. DVSN made an appearance, like can you imagine?! OMG, I literally couldn’t breathe. I was ready to force my way to the stage, oh yeah, I was going to be one of those crazy fans I even thought about fainting too! He was wonderful, just as expected, and performed just two songs “With me” and “Don’t choose” from his new album. Then 6lack returned and performed until 11:45 pm, ending with one of his popular tracks, PRBLMS. At this point, I’m rushing my way to the back to go get these.

Clips from the concert:

This concert made me feel AMAZINGGGGGGG!!! Will I recommend this artist to you? like YES, why not. I will like to know which artists you listen to and if you have been to any concert. Share your experience with me! 🌸

The Secret Lives Of Baba Segi’s Wives!

The Secret Lives Of Baba Segi’s Wives!

Hellloooo,

In my first blog post, I mentioned a book which I had started reading. By the title of this post, you already know it’s The Secret Lives Of Baba Segi’s Wives ☺️.  Have you ever had that one book that you start reading and you just can’t drop it to begin actual work?  Yeahh that’s exactly what this book was for me.

Lola Shoneyin’s The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives is a novel that can truly capture one’s mind. Not only is it an interesting read but it also covers a broad spectrum of issues such as Feminism, Rape, Masculinity and Women Empowerment in the act of Submission.  As the story unfolds in the setting of a polygamous family each character has distinguishing features that make them interesting.

Among the various issues, Women Empowerment will be my focus as it was an underlining theme I noticed in every single chapter I read. The main character Baba Segi believes that he is in control of the household and runs things but in reality, the “control” is in the hands of the women. The wives give him the false impression of power so their regular routines don’t get interrupted.

Even though I am really excited about this book, I don’t want to give out any spoilers. However, I would say that I believe that reasons behind peoples actions are actually influenced by either their upbringing or past experiences. Certain behaviors and conducts displayed by the wives in their home reflected this fact ranging from their treatment to one another and their husband Baba Segi.

 

 

I don’t need to go into further details to tell you how worth reading this novel is. Do grab your copy and tell me about your feedback!
