Hips don't lie

I have added another entry to my C.V. Up until yesterday, I was a single mum, full-time worker, part-time masters student (no, not UNILAG or LASU- I don't believe in pissing my money off getting a Nigerian Masters, story for another day), part time omo-odo / housegirl because we do not have one, full-time friend to Miss A (that is a valid entry believe me). O.k., I think that's it.

Now, I have added Cuban salsa dancer to the list. Cuban salsa, Cuban salsa, Cuban salsa...I love the way it rolls off my tongue. It sounds so exotic. I started my classes yesterday. Why? Because, sadly, I do not have rhythm. Or so my siblings claim. They say that if a gun was held to my head and someone said “dance or die!” they would have to arrange for a burial. *fume*

So, for 15hrs this month, I am going to be learning the skills that will wow my cynical siblings and perhaps the world. Look out shakira!! I will soon be launching HIPS DON”T LIE Part two in no time. Don’t worry, I will still remember you all when my dancing brings me fame and glory.

And no, my tutor does not look that hot.


  1. Thanks for stopping by and for the lovely comment.
    Now about Dancing. That is one thing i've promised myself i'll do immediately after youth service. I first heard about the salsa classes in ore's blog and i've been meaning to ask her about it. But since you mentioned it i'll ask u.
    1.How much does it cost?
    2.Where do they hold classes?
    3.Do they teach all dances (Ballroom) or is it just salsa?
    I think that's about it.
    By the way Nice blog.

  2. Hello you!

    1. I don't know how much they cost as the price for me is a bit high since I have the tutor come to my house to give the lessons.

    2. There's a place at V.I called LA CASA where classes hold. Its on Ozumba Mbadiwe. You can also try THE VAULT on Idowu Taylor. Belly dancing at TANJIA. That's next for me:)

    3. They teach only Latin American dances as far as I know. I am not sure you will be able to get any other sort of dance there but you could ask.

    I hope this helps. If you would like a private tutor, just let me know and I will see about hooking you up with one. Its costs more than 15K sha o!

  3. Thanks for the info i'll try to check it out as soon as i get back to lagos
