Yesterday I got up round 0.8.00, had some breakfast and met up with the band. We went to Palais De Congress a.k.a the mecca of suits n ties. The auditorium, where the stage was situated, was in 70's style n the atmosphere was somewhat serious n what do u call it, a bit dry. Heh. Anyways, we had to wait for like 3 hours to soudcheck cause the sound engineer was late and the folks that were supposed to put everything together knew nada bout cables, drum kits etc. After soundcheck we went to the hotel to chill for a bit, then we went back to the venue. The show went well I must say! It was niiiiiice! When we started off, the audience were kind of stiff but I think we made them loosen up cause we had quite a lot of folks dancin towards the end of the show! Big up to the crowd! Fun times. After that we went back to the hotel then out to a restaurant for dinner. At the restaurant we had to wait over 1 hour without the sight of any food so we left but as we were walking away we got stopped by the staff of the restaurant that argued and convinced us to come back. After a few minutes of discussion we all went back to a half empty table, all the food were still not there. I even re-ordered but never got my plate. Anyways, after that some of us went out clubbin n some went to the hotel. I usually love goin out but i was too hungry so I went back to my room to eat fries and avocado. Recorded some ish, watched some videos, fell asleep n woke up round 12. Now im still in Mophoni's room, we're going out soon. We're gonna get a tour round Yaoundé, interesting...I'll keep yall posted!
PEACE UNITY N FRIES

Oh my gooshhh! The adventure started little more than 24 hours ago in Crackney, LDN when i got picked up by a cab that then went to pick up IG n then brought us to Heathrow where we catched our plane to Paris. Thing is, the plane got delayed so when we finally got to Paris we almost missed our plane to Yaoundé, Cameroon! The peoples from Air France were all over the place babbelin in french bout god knows what, they looked like panicin hens on some farm! Afrter a few minutes of drama we got on the right plane in the last minute! On the plane i had delicious mango juice, toblerone, compotte de pommes (amie knows!!!), bread, some chocolate bisquit ehmmm some risotto n water! n then i watched different filmes n the simpsons on the mini tv i had...when the plane finally stopped me n IG left n felt the warm african weather blessing our wintercursed skins! Then someone said that we had to get back on the plane again cause apparently our stop was 30 min away..so we had to get back on the plane again n wait for another 40 min or so n then after departure we landed in about 10 min maximum! Finally in Yaoundé we landed safely but we had one more obstacle to face, where were our luggage??? Someone told us that it wasnt there at first but then when me n my dear planemate was about to start prayin, the bags appeared n we took a taxi for about 45 min (luckily i had pringles in my bag, we were starvin!!) until we got to the Hilton hotel! Now im sittin in the lobby, just had some delicious plantain, vegetables n rice n coke that I ordered from roomservice! Need to go to sleep veeery soon cause im gettin up tomorrow for rehersal with the band! Can't wait! One wierd thing, an old friend of mine from stockholm is here too!

I've been invited to be a part of a show called Bring The Noise! Forgot to tell yall bout this before..Im actually leaving my house tonight to fly to Cameroon early early thursday morning!
I'll write more about this later on, but since i'm in a rush to get out of my house and get some essentials from the pharmacy i'll just paste some info that I copied from British Concil's website:
"Bring the Noise Concert is a fusion of musicians, artists and film makers from all over Africa and the UK brought together to collaborate, create and perform.
Selected artists have been exploring issues of identity, culture and heritage resulting in a number of new pieces of work which will be performed across Africa and the UK. Bring the Noise is one of several projects that aim to increase appreciation of African music in the UK and to highlight the power and beauty of creative fusions in the arts resulting from the criss-cross of influences between Africa and the UK.
The artists involved in the project have collaborated to produce new pieces of work that will bring together visuals and music. This work will be for the very first time live in Uganda at the Bring the Noise concert.
Bring the Noise Concert is one of the activities under Africa 2007, a British Council programme of cultural interaction to connect people in Africa and the UK. It is s aimed at people who want to engage in improving relationships. It builds new perceptions and dialogues through an exploration of identities, cultures, histories, and language, by using different media, ground-breaking activities and new networks. Africa 2007 connects professionals, artists and young people, through a celebration of diversity"
I'll keep you posted!!!
