United Artists Assoication founders and quot;This Americaquot; co-stars Sir Citor, Bethels and Oliver Late Thursday night {November 15th} the Nollywood stars of quot;This Americaquot; came together for the first time since their Tribeca premiere to released the Oliver O Mbamara produced-directed-written feature film, quot;Slave Warrior.quot; Feels Good 2 B
  7. 7. Home's Miss Chi Chi was there to give you all the inside scoop of the Brooklyn premiere. The show was held at Medgar Evers College {CUNY} in Megdar Evers College Auditorium. The Medgar Evers College Film & Culture series {shout out to Miles!} presented quot;Slave Warriorquot; to the general public and the CUNY campus. Admission was free. A open mic hosted by MEC Radio DJ '718' jumpstarted the festivites. What the film is all about according to quot;An African student in America travels back in time to his life in 18th century Africa when he was a war hero captured into servitude. Though a captive, he risked his life to save his captors’ clan from the invasion of some ruthless slave-traders, while attempting to rescue his beloved from the chains of slavery. Through this experience he comes to find some answers to some of his present day puzzles.quot; Cast of quot;Slave Warriorquot; Charles Mbamara - Agu {:::SCOOP:::Charles and Oliver are brothers in real-life.} Dan Nkoloagu - Nze Omeudo David Ihesie - Nze Okorie Sir Laz Mbamara Ekejiuba - Ichie Nkowa {::SCOOP::: Oliver's father in real-life.} Fabian Adibe - Nze Ekedibia Regina Askia - Roslyn Here are a few kodak moments of Miss Chi Chi with the stars of quot;This America.quot; Sir Citor {the renaissance man of and Golden Studios Inc.} Bethels Agomoah {he arrived fashionably late with a HUGE entourage!}

A complete shocker, isn't it? Gbenga in his quot;Barbershopquot; promo pic...
  11. 11. Gbenga with his co-stars of quot;The Wirequot;... I watched the short-lived TV spinoff to the movie franchise quot;Barbershopquot; only to be annoyed at the portrayal of the African barber {Gbenga played the role.} I was annoyed because I loved the way the movie played the character smoothly out. So I was expecting the same thing nothing more and nothing less for the TV verison only to be disappointed. I can't blame it on Gbenga but I can blame it on poor writing. This is of course my own opinion--hate it or love it. I hope to see more of Gbenga in TV and movie roles. He can be like Djimon Hounsou and better if he's looking in the right direction. {One thing Gbenga shouldn't do is take on another zany African barber role ever again! LOL!} Interested in learning more about Gbenga, aren't you? Read on for Gbenga's official bio from HBO.COM. quot;Gbenga Akinnagbe, legal name Olugbenga Enitan Temitope Akinnagbe, is a first generation American, born in Washington, DC. His parents
  12. 12. and older sister were born in Nigeria. Gbenga is the second oldest of six children, one older sister and four younger brothers. His older sister is pursuing a career in the medical field, one younger brother graduated with a teaching degree, another works in a bio research facility. The youngest are still in school. Gbenga graduated from Bucknell University. He attended on a Wrestling scholarship, and had a dual major in Political Science and English. Wrestling became a passion for Gbenga late in high school. He joined the team his junior year and was recruited division 1 the following year. He went on to become a champion all state and all conference competitor. Wrestling remains a positive force in his life today and he is a volunteer coach at his high school alma mater in Montgomery County in Maryland. This year the Mid-Eastern Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel recognized him with the Trio Achiever Award. This regional award is given to TRIO program alum that embodies the spirit of the program's goal to produce successful individuals. Gbenga is a very spiritual individual, with a strong faith base. He believes in giving back to the community, and that quot;one person can change the world.quot; Gbenga graduated from Bucknell and started working in the congressional affairs department at the Corporation for National Service the federal agency that administers the nations Americorp and other volunteer programs. After becoming interested in acting, Gbenga left his position with the government after earning a role at The Shakespeare theatre in Washington, DC. He went on from there to do theatre projects in the Baltimore and Washington DC area, including such prestigious theatres as the Kennedy Center, and Studio Theatre. He had the opportunity to work with renowned directors Michael Kahn and Reggie Life. Then while taking acting classes in New Jersey he was invited to audition for a reoccurring role in the HBO series quot;The Wire.quot; After completing filming with quot;The Wire,quot; Gbenga moved to New York City, was signed by a manager and began his career in earnest. He's worked at New York's famous Public Theatre, done Shakespeare in the Park, was a series regular on Showtime's quot;Barbershop,quot; and became a lead character on quot;The Wire.quot; Gbenga has a deep interest in the world around him. He enjoys traveling and wishes to see the world as well as learn other languages. He is already fluent in Spanish and proficient in most sports.

[Unspoken, blame the mouth; unheard, blame the ear.] {Source} Posted by Chi-Chi at 6:51 PM 1 comments Links to this post Meet novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  14. 14. The Washington Post Book World crowned Miss Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie quot;the 21st century daughter of Chinua Achebe.quot; This past weekend I stopped by Barnes and Noble to see the latest African American literature, which also happens to be my favorite type of books to read. There Chimamanda's new book, quot;Half of A Yellow Sunquot; caught my attention. I was amazed and happy to see her novel on display. So I picked up her novel to see what it's all about. quot;Half of a Yellow Sunquot; depicts the tales of three individuals {Richard, Ugwu, and Olanna} during the Biafra War. If you're an Nigerian you know how important this war was. The Biafra War was essentially Nigeria's way of fighting its independence way back in 1960. {Nigeria has since become an indepedent nation free of British rule. Nigeria gain its indepedence on October 1, 1960.} Adichie's first novel, quot;Purple Hibiscusquot; won critical praise from Nigerian and non- Nigerian publishers and authors.
  15. 15. Most notably Adichie's first work won acclaim from fellow Nigerian writer Chinua Achebe. The godfather of Nigerian tale Achebe had this to say of Adichie's first work, quot;We do not usually associate wisdom with beginners, but here is a new writer endowed with the gift of ancient storytellers. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie knows what is at stake, and what to do about it. She is fearless, or she would not have taken on the intimidating horror of Nigeria's civil war. Adichie came almost fully made.quot; Prior to Achebe's acknowledgement of her work, Chimamanda used Achebe's poem, quot;Mango Seedingquot; in her novel. Here's the exact citation that Chimamanda used in quot;Half of a Yellow Sunquot;: quot;Today I see it still- Dry, wire-thin in sun and dust of the dry months- headstone on tiny debris of passionate courage.quot; {quot;Mango Seedingquot; from quot;Christmas in Biafra & Other Poemsquot; by Chinua Achebe}
  16. 16. Chimamanda's quot;Purple Hibiscusquot; won the Commonwealth Writer's Prize and the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award. Miss Adichie credits her parents especially her father, Professor Nwoye James Adichie for her writing success. Professor Adichie often says quot;agha ajoka {war is very ugly}quot; whenever he's telling a story about the past to his daughter. Speaking about the past Miss Adichie dedicated her current novel, quot;Half of a Yellow Sunquot; to quot;their memories: ka fa nodu na ndokwa.quot; Contact Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie through her official website [here] quot;Half of A Yellow Sunquot; has its own website [here]

  23. 23. Nigerian artwork has been in existence for the past 2000 years. Each time I visted the local museums in the city I am amazed by the amount of diligence, time, effort and detail given to wooden artwork drew up by our Nigerian ancestors. Naijia woodart is a popular form to advertise or show off in your living room. {ie. The Cosby Show and Girlfriends all have woodart displayed in their living rooms.} Here's the pick of the day from the Yorubas... ~~~ I discovered this Yoruba mask art work from quot;Remnants of Ritualquot; which has a collection of African art. {see today's artwork above} quot;Masks known as Gelede are utilized by the Efe/Gelede Association among the western Yoruba. This society honors quot;the mothersquot; in relation to female ancestors and deities. An interesting duality exists, however, in that Gelede is also an anti- witchcraft society and, at the same time, is thought to have close affiliations to witchcraft itself. Here, the power of the mother in her role of birthing and life- giving is contrasted with the concept of the power of elderly women and witchcraft, thus giving and taking life, health or illness. This particular mask,

Here's the first pick: · Ula towa uto, ekwowe ya ekwowe. [When sleep becomes enjoyable, we snore.] {Source} Posted by Chi-Chi at 5:45 PM 2 comments Links to this post Get to Know Miss Chi Chi I just realized I haven't really introduced myself to you all since my first post. quot;Self-proclaimed celeb entertainment news junkiequot; is how I described myself these days. I am a award-nominated entertainment news journalist. {I use to write for
  25. 25. my college's paper as their entertainment news editor for four years.} I decided to share my love for celebrity entertainment news into a blog. I plan on expaning this blog into an lucrative and daily online celeb news magazine. Drawing upon that and also my experience working in the video promotions department of Interscope A&M Geffen I launched my first blog, Platform Launch Action in July 2006. When I attended the Nigerian Independence Parade this past October I decided to launch my second blog, Feels Good 2 B Home, which caters to Nigerian lifestyle and culture. Earlier this month I launched my third (and hopefully final) blog, Throwback Terrace which hightlights then and now music videos. Prior to my blogging days I graduated from college with a BA/MA in Corporate Communications this past May---a huge accomplishment of mine's. Blogging is something I look forwad to do daily and I love the good (and bad) feedback I've been getting ever since. I'm proud of my Nigerian heritage and I had to share it with each person who ever visited my blog. Any news, gossip, pictures, questions, love & hate e-mail you have contact me here... For all ads inquiries contact me at... Add me as your myspace friend... Add me as your my blog log contact... Frequent Q&A's Why are you called Miss Chi Chi? Miss Chi Chi is a name that drew upon as inspiration from Beyonce, Mary J Blige, Diddy and Eminem. These artists all have a hip and sassy nickname I figured why not called myself, the nickname my grandfather calls me quot;Chi Chiquot; but then I realized quot;Chi Chiquot; is looks sort of plain so I added quot;Missquot; to the front of Chi Chi to give a more feminine appeal. Why is your blog called quot;Feels Good 2 B Home?quot; The name of this blog came to me while I was listening to Kanye West's song, quot;Touch the Skyquot; one day on the radio. I'm kept nodding my head when Kanye echoed, quot;Feels Good 2 B Home, huh?quot; over and over again. I said to myself in that particular moment, quot;that's PERFECT! I'll call my new blog, quot;Feels Good 2 B Home.quot;
  26. 26. Feels Good 2 B Home covers my Nigerian heritage which is something quite big that I feel needs its own blog to cover. {} How can I become a link on your blogroll? It's quite simple. I added those who covers similar topics or simply blogs that I feel is entertaining. You can e-mail me at to link exchange. Why have two other blogs? PlatformLaunchAction is my first daily blog which covers celeb entertainment news, gossip, films, fashion, hot spots and much more. Throwback Terrace is something fresh covering then and now music videos at the reader's discretion! {} Since Platform Launch Action focuses primarily on celebrity entertainment news I didn't want my readers to get confused...content wised.

  28. 28. Lola Oguinnake is a star correspondent for major publications like quot;The New York Timesquot; and quot;Vibequot; magazine. She's interviewed stars like Usher and many others in the past. Lola has her eyes on replacing Star Jones on quot;The View.quot; As you know Barbra Walters cannot be on every episode/taping of her executive-produced daytime talk show. quot;The Viewquot; is quite interesting to watch if you enjoy co-hosts Rosie O'Donnell and Elizabeth Hasselback fight over liberal/conservative hot topics. {Editor's Note: I couldn't find any picture of Lola online so that's why I'm using quot;The Viewquot; cast picture instead.} ~ quot;Exclusive Lola Ogunnaike, meet your competition. Sure, The View has welcomed a string of black women to fill in for Star Jones' as-yet-unfilled seat. Like One Life To Live's Renee Goldsberry, whose June appearance was among the first auditions in the producers' quest to find quot;the new black lady.quot; But this week-including right now, in fact; turn on your TVs-The View is welcoming Arthel Neville of Geraldo At Large. (And, in case you're wondering, yes: She's the daughter of Arthur Neville.) She guest co-hosted yesterday's show as well. Unlike the currently suspended New York Times Style reporter Ogunnaike, we're told Neville's bosses at the Fox News Channel gave her permission-even encouragement-to try out for the show. An ABC insider, meanwhile, tattles to us that although View producers (which include exec producer and co-host Barbara Walters) were pleased with Ogunnaike's performance, they're quite enamored with
  29. 29. Neville. We're told her prior TV experience gives her a huge leg up: She launched Extra, has served as a producer and talent on E!, and has a string of sitcom appearances padding her IMDb profile. She joined FNC in March as Geraldo's West Coast chief and, from what we understand, is well liked around Rupert Murdoch's camp. Continues our ABC source: quot;Perhaps most importantly, she's getting along with Rosie [O'Donnell]. Not sure how Elisabeth [Hasselbeck] feels about her, but if Rosie likes her, then Barbara likes her, and that's all that matters.quot; With Ogunnaike on indefinite suspension from the Times, we can only imagine she's spending her afternoons dialing View producers, wondering when they're having her on again. Her evenings, meanwhile, are devoted to sticking pins in her Neville voodoo doll.quot; {Source} Posted by Chi-Chi at 6:21 AM 0 comments Links to this post Sunday, November 05, 2006 Meet Megalyn Echikunwoke::hot new actress!
