How are you today?

When I heard the news about Obiwon being a gospel artiste I was surprised. So, I decided to blog about it to tell my readers that did not know.

 Obiora Obiwon R&B singer turned gospel artiste covering September edition of Vine Magazine (an entertainment and lifestyle magazine for young positive minds) says 'switching to gospel was not a business decision'.

Obiwon speaks about his conversion and terrifying salvation experience as well as his relationship with Tuface, Blackface, Flavour, Ill-Bliss and others which spans almost two decades.

Interviewed by Vine Magazine Editor, 'Seun Salami, Obiwon also speaks about the initial rejection and skepticism he had to endure from the 'gospel community' after he made the switch to gospel music and why he is not comfortable charging fees to minister. He also had some stern words for other gospel artistes who 'demand' payment to minister.

This edition also features Pastor J (Jimmy Odukoya), Nikki Laoye, PITA and more.

Vine Magazine which is now distributed free every month, is out this Sunday (August 25) and will be given out at major youth churches around the city of Lagos and environs as well as major gospel gigs going down throughout the month of September.

For more details on how to get copies of the magazine, visit or follow @VineTheMagazine on twitter.

How have you been? I have been really busy but I couldn't help but make a post about this book launch I went for on Sunday.  It was really a wonderful time.

It was my first time of going for a book launch and I was opportuned to take the first reading of the book. I read the chapter on 'Steps to becoming stylish'.

Enough of my ramblings, lets talk about the event.

Funto Oni, a 23 year old Beauty entrepreneur cum Chartered Accountant, presented her first book 'Beautified' to the public during the event. The book is extremely beautiful and attractive while the launch was just as colourful.

Some guests who witnessed the launch include Pastor Kunle Soriyan of the Fountain of Life Church; (Pastor) Jimi Tewe of Inspiro Consulting; Bankole Williams, author of 'Engaged to a Job I hate and Steve Harris, Life Strategist and author of 'From College Drop-out to Corporate Sell-out' & 'From Friend to Fiancee; Blogger, Olorisupergal and Mrs. Love Olaleye of Flawless Makeovers.

Guests were also treated to awesome music by the likes of David (Project Fame), TJ Sax and comedy from MC EmmaOhMaGod (of CoolFM and Wazobia FM), Dee One and SLK.

According to 'Seun Salami, (Head of Publishing, Bookvine) publisher of the book, "Beautified is the complete beauty and style guide for every woman as well as men who care about their women." He described Funto as an extremely passionate and purpose driven lady with a radiating personality.

The book is available by order (07034298496) for N2500 and will be out in stores as from Monday August 26.
