YESI "Coronation" Album Launch Party

As you all know, we at FrannySquared are lovers of all things music, and we especially support any upcoming Naija talent, at home or away...
Newcomer rapper Yesi (aka Kabiyesi) recently had a launch party at Comix Club in New York City for his debut album, Coronation, which officially comes out on May 25th, and we were there!

The event was very well organized, and well attended, with a young diverse crowd. Chris Akinyemi, another upcoming nigerian artist opened the show with a few songs, playing the guitar.
Then YESI took the stage and commanded the crowd...nice energy, and the crowd was def feeling him.
There were also some free giveaways of mixtape CDs and YESI t-shirts...all in all, great way to spend a Saturday night in the city!

The album Coronation can be downloaded off iTunes, Amazon support Naija music :)
A few pictures from the event below...
The hiphop artist reps Naija to the fullest -- born & raised in Ibadan, but currently based in New York City.  His music is a fusion of English, Yoruba and Pidgin, and aims to relate to the average young Nigerian.  
Two singles off the album, G.R.A and Aura are up and playing on popular Nigerian blogsites.  
For more information on Yesi, check out his website,, follow him on twitter @yesimusic, or join the Facebook fanpage!

Cocktails and Dresses Update

So I was at Cocktails and Dresses yesterday, and honestly I was pleasantly surprised by the the event; it took place at Zamunda (formerly 007) and it was a mini-party which just happened to be a dress sale.

So the event was organised by 2 lovely young entrepreneurs Damola Araoye and Torera Majekodunmi; Damola already has an online store Shop Sugarr and they plan to make this a monthly event.

So I totally enjoyed the event because asides the shopping (dresses were very REASONABLE -- very!!!!!!!), it was a good way to catch up with friends and generally a good way to chill on a Sunday... Check out some of the pics from the event.

instant vintage : 05.2010 : …wasting time… (Because I Love You, Superfresh)

This very hilarious post was done by instant vintage you definitely have to check it out so funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Because we all know Tyra secretly believes she started it all.  Model Creationism.
A recipe site catered to those with an affinity for profanity.  What The Fuck Should I Make For Dinner?
A man on a mission to recycle/reuse what she left behind.  My Ex Wife’s Wedding Dress.
“Your silence says a lot. Mainly, you haven’t got the intellect to say something mildly witty. Or intelligent. Or anything of substance. You are, by definition, a fuck-up.”  Sleep Talkin’ Man.
The  best form of birth control.  Shit My Kids Ruined.


Been so busy with work that I haven't had time to put this up, the event happened almost two weeks back but anyways these are our picks for the best dressed at the event.

Anne Wintour, Editor at large of Vogue hosted the event and dazzled in this Chanel ensemble.

SJP wowed everyone in her gold Harlston gown which was simply divine.

Nicole Ritchie has definitely evolved into a style goddess and is stunning in this Marc Jacobs creation.

This is one of my favourite looks, Kate Bosworth looks every bit like a Hollywood legend in this Valentino 20s inspired gown.

I was totally shocked to find out that Kerry Washington's gown was done by Gap, the colour against her skin tone is so gorgeous .

So for those of you that may not know her, Chanel Iman is a gorgeous highly successful model and she looked über-fierce in this Micheal Kors jumpsuit WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only someone as fierce as Andre Leon Talley can pull something like this off especially to the MET gala kudos man.................................. and no words for Whoopi Goldberg.................(this is in a bad way!!!!!!!!).

The simplicity in this gown is what I think I love most about this look on Jessica Alba and the gown is by Sophie Theallet for Gap gown.

So I will post details about how you our readers can win free tickets for the SATC show happening here in Lagos so look out for that.

Have a wonderful day guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ADIEU TRUE LOVE WEST AFRICA............................ HELLO FLAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow!!!!!! it seems like forever since I last posted anything up on the blog trust me details of my MIA........ness will be spilled in another post.

So for like 2 months now True Love has been off the market, it seems it just disappeared into thin air and weirdly as it may sound I felt lost not having it there after almost 3 years of buying and subscribing to the magazine.

For me it was so much more than just a magazine, it was Inspiration, Fashion,Career, Motherhood (considering I don't have kids),the Segun Johnson articles, The restaurant reviews all wrapped up in a cute bow and served to me monthly.

So you can imagine my frustration when I couldn't get an explanation and though I tried severally to call and email their offices I didn't get any reply. Almost a week ago I  stumbled upon a very depressing article about Condé Nast and other major publishing houses; Media24 (True Love W/A publisher) who are being affected strongly by the Economic meltdown and have had to close down a lot of their offices.

 But Alas........ all isn't lost Bola Attah the editor of True Love W/A decided to relaunch a magazine she started almost a decade ago  and hence the REBIRTH OF FLAIR. I am more than excited to see what it entails and I have no doubt that I will be subscribing yet again.

I go back to work tomorrow with ambivalent feelings no doubt after being ill for over a week....................... all I can say is I hope to have a wonderful week ahead.
