So I don't sound like an obnoxious pretentious writer who's always looking to analyze the underlying message in the song, here's a simple approach to telling you why you should have a listen to Blessing's "Excuses."
"If you you miss me, call or text."
"If you love me tell me"
"If you want me come find me"
these words I heard in a conversation this one time.
It sometimes feels like we tend to forget how to deal with our fellow humans by giving so many excuses, I couldn't call because, I forgot to text because, I couldn't come see you because...maybe you could't do all these because I just don't mean so much to you.
(so much for writing simply and not pretentious)
Maybe its because the song feels so personal, and hits so close to home but this song...this woman are on to something deep.
She serves up rawness on this track and it could possibly be the fact that almost everyone can relate to the words. it's real life wrapped in a beautiful song by an even more beautiful voice.
I'd probably play this song to the next person who offers me excuses for something as basic as calling

South African tv personality, Bonang and American singer, #MaryjBlige, doing justice to this emerald green #michaelcostello dress.
We love how gorgeous and elegant they both look in this outfit. Can you think of another artiste that would look great in a dress like this?

walking into the Blue Cabana, you are compelled to relax, and the main hall was a simple proper chill environment and the first set was a beautiful cascading experience.
Ushered in by Mc Bluetooth,
The show kicked off with "Apologize" a literal apology to all who have been friend-zoned.
Then they moved Love, Kites and a Rock, a mostly abstract but eerily interesting.
The next was Oya, my personal favorite and then Long Shot! It may all have a core of love but...who doesn't love love right? I hope nobody.
Bash came next, eloquently spitting words of fire to our souls oh so effortlessly making simple words quicken everyone present.
And then the final act, Jarell Ebuka, such a super star name and the face to go with it made a show as he performed his smile evoking singles 'What a good Boy', 'Close' and the fairly new jam 'Many years ago'.
The show was closed with a full set from the reasons for the evening the Isomers serenading us with another set comprising of 'Power', 'Agbada' and then the much anticipated 'Lunatic in your Town' and finally the last song of the evening, 'Another man's head'.
The crop and calibre of music in the capital city of Abuja is best described as underestimated. Its a wonder that these talents haven't...for lack of a better expression "Blown" however, this is a Watch Out World warning. Music is growing, root up in Abuja.
