Yes it me writing a blog after such a long break, it's not my fault as I have been overwhelmed with work in Nigeria.

Yes that is Nigeria in Africa, there is so much going on here so I decided to come out here and see if I can get a slice of the action.

Well I took the short flight from London to Lagos in November of last year and since then I have not looked back.

Before I go on I do need to say that Mahogany is still a thriving business in the UK and the rest of Africa and I am in and out of the UK every month.

I know some of you are jealous of the jet setters life I live - its ok I feel you. Who would not be jealous of me working in constant sunshine, flying around the world and living it up in the best hotels - even I am jealous of me.

Since being here, I have done or been involved in some great events including the Face of Fashion for Africa that took place in the Gambia, the one of a kind Darey Art Alade, Love Like A Movie where I got to meet Kim Khardasian (she is much shorter than I thought).

Beyond Music was amongst the biggest music concerts I have done in recent times and it featured top Nigerian gospel artist like Timi Dakolo, Tim Godfrey and the Lagos Community Gospel Choir.

Its nice being able to work with the likes of Whizkid, Tuface, Tiwa Savage, Waje, Mo Easy, Zaina, Basketmouth, Ali Baba, IK, Dr Sid, Naeto. C - I could go on and on, but I have now worked with nearly all of the industry greats in Nigeria including top Nollywood actors.

I know this seems like self praise but I am just updating you as to what I have been up to and not boasting. Well Ok I am boasting a little bit but you can't blame me when I get to work on and go to the Africa Magic Peoples Choice Awards, Ebonylife TV launch event and so much more. I think you have an idea of what my life is like here so I will stop now.

PS don't get it twisted Nigeria is not all fun and glory, its a lot of hard work and a very challenging environment, in later blogs I will let you know what it is really like working in Nigeria, trust me I have stories and Nigeria is not for the faint hearted.
