NEWS: THE CARDI B NIGERIAN TRIP THE MEDIA LEFT OUT ||@thehelejaneofficial @iamcardib

At the LivespotXFestival, Cardi B meets with Nigerian Fans and was presented with a luxury handcrafted leather made in Nigeria handbag that was inspired and named after her song, Bodak Yellow. The creative designer, Dolapo Deji-Torey says the realness of the song which talked about Cardi’s struggles, challenges and rise to fame inspired her to pursue her dreams with HELEJANÉ.

Talking about her experience meeting Cardi B at the LiveFestXFestival, HeleJane reveals that she first fell in love with the artiste from the Love & Hip-hop reality TV show whose challenges resonated with her own personal experiences.

Growing up, HeleJane had many talents but struggled with identifying her passion as she was constantly nagged by the fear of failure.  She started her brand 10

years ago but had to shut it down a year later because she felt she was failing and not doing enough.

Six months ago, the Nigerian designer started over with the luxury handbag collection which is a testimony to following her dreams and seeing it through just like Cardi B did when she left the Love & Hip hop show to pursue her rap career.

HeleJane, inspired by Cardi B, then named one of her handbags “Bodak” after the artiste’s “Bodak Yellow” song.

In September 2019, HeleJane learned that Cardi B would be in Nigeria and she just knew she had to meet the person who inspires her.

She wanted Cardi B to have the handbag named after her song and started to put plans in motion.

HeleJane sent messages to the artiste’s stylists, promoters and even Cardi herself but got no response. Nevertheless, she persisted.

She restrategized, recharged and sent even more messages but this time around to the event organizers and anyone who was likely to be in touch with Cardi B for the event.

Two days to the show, HeleJane still had no guarantee that she’d meet Cardi B but had told everyone she was going to meet her. In a way, she had come to believe it.

A day before the event, a friend suggested she goes to Lagos and try to make it to the Meet and Greet with her

Cardi B. Prior to that, she had participated in an online contest to attend the meet and greet.

She got a mail on the D-day that she had won a ticket to meet Cardi and her dream was finally becoming a reality.

At the venue, HeleJane met Dare Art Alade who introduced her to his wife and arranged with Cardi’s team to meet with the designer.

During the photo session, HeleJane’s dream and all of her hard work finally paid off as she was introduced to Cardi and presented the bag to her.

To her surprise, the rapper unwrapped the box right there and the expression on her face was priceless. In HeleJane’s words, “for me, it was an early Christmas gift. It made my year, it made all the hard work worth it.”

She describes Cardi B as warm, real, accommodating and down to earth.

Sports: It Might Take 5-10 years Before We Can Win A Trophy Says Tottenham Hotspurs Coach

The Tottenham boss says this past weekend’s defeat shows that his side doesn’t have the mindset to challenge just yet

Mauricio Pochettino says it could take between five and 10 years for Tottenham to develop the mentality to legitimately push for the Premier League title.

Spurs fell 2-1 to Burnley over the weekend and now sit six points behind league-leaders Liverpool and five points behind Manchester City.

After the loss, Pochettino admitted that the defeat likely ended the club’s title hopes this season.

And now the manager says that it could take an even longer time to develop the mental strength to truly compete with the elite.

“If you want to be a real contender, playing well or not, it’s (the game against Burnley) a must-win,” Pochettino said.

“You need to show you are fighting for big things and I am frustrated because we didn’t show the same energy as Burnley, the same attitude as Burnley, the same ambition as Burnley.

“We have to look at ourselves and maybe assess ourselves in different ways – we are not looking for excuses.

“It is holding us back and it might take five years’ work, 10 years’ work to change that.”

Tottenham is set to face Chelsea on Wednesday as the Blues look to rebound from Sunday’s Carabao Cup final loss to Manchester City, a match headlined by Kepa Arrizabalaga’s refusal to come out in extra time.

Chelsea are sure to be extra motivated for the match, and Pochettino insists that his side will also bring the right mentality to Wednesday’s clash.

Imagine: Slay Queens In Ekiti Turn Flood Into Swimming Pool

Ekiti slay queens, flood

Pictures of some ladies from Ekiti state in Nigeria have gone viral.

The ladies were spotted in a pool of rain water that flooded their community.

Ekiti slay queens, flood

The ladies were making the most of the puddle as they were dressed in their bathing suits and were swimming and playing.

The ladies took advantage of the flood instead of going to pay so much money at a swimming pool ‘which was already at their disposal’.

One of the ladies who couldn’t contain her excitement, appreciated the rain and claimed that they had waited long for this moment to catch fun.
