Finally , it looks like we will be filming my first ever fitness video. It's fun to be a filmmaker's wife. You get expensive production services for free. Well, that is not actually true but never mind.

We are practicing for this video for months with my girs. We are meeting 3-4 times a week and pushing ourselves to the limit. Once the product is ready I wouldn't mind to get some feedback on it please.



Occasionally I have a quick look at my whitenaijagirl blog and feel so delighted that I still have people looking back every day on my site. I even feel tempted to write then but so many times I would just not have the time to finish my article.

BUT today I decided to write about why I'm not writing. There is so much going on these days and I really feel blessed because of that.
I have officially started my weight loss business called WNG specializing in African diet and exercise. I have given speech about weight loss and healthy lifestyle for Africans in Manchester Family Christ Church and got the admission to Manchester Metropolitan University Nutritional Sciences course.
 Of course I still give free exercise lessons in New Covenant Church and started another weight loss group in church.

Apart from all this I help tirelessly in my husband media production company called MagnumN3 and do my normal responsibilities as a mother, wife and NCC choir member. I don't really have time for socializing but I do enjoy every aspect of my busy life.

Now I will make more efford to write on this site as White Naija Girl means so much to me. This is where my love of Africa started.

WNG, October 2013


Weddings in Nigeria are colorful, creative and extravagant productions, with guest lists of up to 2,000 people considered standard. In England, if you had 400 people at a wedding, that would be considered a huge number, In Nigeria, if you had 400 guests, people would say “Oh, dear". Families typically put much effort and expense into the event, as a wedding was an important status symbol - although "not in a negative way."

There are two parts to a Nigerian wedding. The first ceremony is the "traditional wedding," sometimes also referred to as the engagement. This is typically attended by fewer guests -- only family and close friends.
The couple would wear traditional dress, with the bride usually wearing a traditional fabric gifted to her by her new parents-in-law, sometimes sewn into a modern Afrocentric design.

The second, "white wedding" - with a guest list at the reception potentially running into the thousands. For this, the bride would wear a white bridal gown and the bridal party formal attire. The most popular time of year for weddings is in December, when expatriate Nigerians return from abroad and can face a schedule of weddings seven days a week.
Another distinctive feature of the Nigerian wedding is the wearing of "aso-ebi." The phrase, which translates from the Yoruba language as "clothes of the family," refers to the garments of matching fabric worn by the bride's family and friends at the ceremony.

"There was darkness for a long time and then there was a light, and that light was you. Your love has given me wings, and our journey begins today. I pledge before this assembled company to be your wife from this day forward. Let us make our two lives one life. I want you for today, tomorrow, and forever."

The above description will be probably very useful to me in a few years time when my husband and I renew our marriage with a traditional Nigerian wedding. This time our wedding  was a small private ceremony  with very few people and we only wanted to “confirm the love, the respect and the true friendship that we have for each other”.

True-As long as I’m married to the one I truly love, at the end of the day, our wedding day went perfectly.


It's been six months now that I'm teaching exercise for the mainly African and Asia community. I spend a lot of time preparing for the class and now I'm also planning to shot my first ever fitness video. My vision is that Africans will have a better understanding of calories and healthy lifestyle.

Along with my exercise class we started our African weight loss group where we talk about healthy lifestyle, the psychology of obesity and African food.

At the moment we don't have enough people in the group, definitely not enough to save African people from diabetes, high blood pressure and stroke.

I think people need to know healthy lifestyle is more than "weight loss". It's quality life, prevention of  several diseases and showing good example to your kids



White naija girl has done it! The movement to promote Yoruba language and culture is slowly becoming international. We've been to Bulgaria for a couple of weeks where I managed to gather wonderful people to sing in Yoruba. Enjoy!

I can't upload the video for some reason but please follow the link. My friend from 7 Euopean countries are singing a short Yoruba song that my dear husband taught us. Some of us really enjoyed ourselves and we were dancing funny.
