How has your week been? Mine has been a roller coaster ride but I’m thankful still. By the way, I’ve been finding a reason to thank God since the first day in July and I’ll be doing that until the end of the month. It’s been a draining yet, heart-warming exercise.
Some days, finding a reason for gratitude comes easily while on other days, I struggle. I’ve had to deal with my heart asking me if I’m really thankful for a day/thing. But all in all, I’m glad I decided to go on a gratitude journey, ’cause I never knew I had many things I’m thankful for.
Now, to the main gist!
Guys, Gelax Chatroom is on a roll as I have yet another announcement.
Drums roll please… grrrrrrrrr!!!
It gives me so much delight to announce the introduction of a new segment under the entertainment category on Gelax Chatroom. This new segment will be analysing and reviewing everything movies and music, from Nigeria, and Africa at large. Yes, I know I started a little bit of music review last year but I had to stop when Ms. Corona came in and put the world on a lockdown. However, this re-introduction of movies and music review is going to be on a whole new level.
The best part of this is… the Galaxy will be having her first official contributor, in the person of Adeola Juwon. Juwon is one person whose WhatsApp statuses I religiously check every day because I like how he analyses music, artists, movies, casts, movie productions and everything in between. Like, this guy drops so much wisdom that I find myself screaming, “Don’t leave me, don’t leave me!” Yup, he’s that good.
In addition to his ‘wisdom droppings’, his vocabulary is way better than mine. No jokes, I find myself googling the meaning of some of the words he uses in his write-ups… LOL. Really, Juwon is fun and I’m sure y’all will enjoy having him in Miss Flowery’s World.
Now, enough praise singing! There are times I disagree and argue with his positions, but that’s what makes it more fun, innit?
ADEOLA JUWON (@adeola_juwon) is a Nigerian Writer, Poet and Art Critic whose works have appeared on or forthcoming in Kalahari Review, Kreative Diadem, Lagos Review, EroGospel and elsewhere. He considers himself a connoisseur of African Music, and he adores the Oxford Comma.
Dearest Stars, please make welcome our first official contributor on Gelax Chatroom, Juwon!!!!
