Painting Hope...

As the year 2009 draws to a close, and we spend the holidays with our loved ones, partying and making merry, we need to remember to give to the less privileged as well, and the Power in Numbers (P.I.N) event was our way of giving back.

The event was organized by the Inspiring Actions Initiative and partner organizations AIPA (Against Illiteracy Poverty and AIDS)( and The Cougars ( and was featured in HiMagazine and BellaNaija blog.  The initiative involved painting and decorating all the classrooms at Hope Primary School in Ikoyi.

It began at 9am and lasted till late afternoon. Numerous young Nigerians were in attendance and helped with painting and decoration of the classrooms...

 Ok so with all the hype about KFC, I finally went there yesterday and I was highly disappointed by the place.

 The food is definitely not KFC, I am thinking the owners were able to get the franchise name but definitely not the secret recipe and for the record BEWARE!!!!! of their Fried rice it is awful.

I do have to say apart from the decor and the KFC signboard, it could just be another random place that serves chicken.

So tread carefully when you decide to go there!!!!!!

It was just another lazy Sunday evening and also the official launch of GREY the latest addition to the Nigerian fashion scene. They hosted their clientele to a very elegant soiree that featured an exclusive look into their latest collection.

Grey is made up of Joke Ladoja (Elan’s Rukky’s frocks) and Obi Obioha a duo who combine their love for classic wearable designs with a passion for vibrant invigorating colors.

According to the designers the name GREY came from their desire to make their designs the midpoint between the outlandish and the classic.
                                                   JOKE LADOJA


Joke says their designs are for the Nigerian woman who wants her outfits to scream individuality without losing that classic wearable appeal.

This collection is majorly a mix of bold bright colors, florals and subtle tones which was translated into very elegant ensembles.

They had a wide variety of 50’s inspired dresses, skirts, mode dresses and long flowy maxi dresses in the most exquisite patterns ever and the best part of it all is that you don’t have to break a bank to afford one of their pieces they are extremely affordable.

 We at frannysquared give them 2 thumbs up and recommend their collection to the fashionable and daring young Nigerian woman.

All in all I have to say it was a very successful launch and a stylish way to spend a Sunday evening.

For more information about the collection and designs log on to their website on

This should have been posted ages ago and I am totally sorry about the delay.

Fela is a provocative hybrid of dance and Broadway  features the Afrobeat music of Fela Anikulapo–Kuti, a book by Jim Lewis and the direction and choreography of Tony® Award winner Bill T. Jones.

According to the producer, The goal “Fela!” has set for itself is to be true to his music and his impact while reaching a Broadway musical audience.

It is, inevitably, a translation, but one governed more by respect and ambition than by show-business routine. “Fela!” juggles the conflicting demands in a celebrated career that has often pondered history, race and sexuality — and the commercial imperatives of Broadway, where theatergoers’ idea of African music might begin and end with “The Lion King.

 It opened on Broadway at Gotham Hall on November 23, 2009 in New York City and was well attended by  celebrities, from Jay-Z,Alicia Keys,Will Smith, Susan Sarandon. Jay-Z is actaully one of the producers of the musical.

This musical has really given more light to the phenomenal and exceptional life and works of one of the greatest Nigerians ever lived. For more information about the musical check the  website out

Have a wonderful weekend guys and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!! in advance
