Keri Hilson storms Abuja (Nigeria) style!

Keri Hilson touched down in the Buj on Friday(16th) evening ahead of her highly anticipated performance at the FACE OF SOFA pageant which is billed to take place tonight at the International Conference Centre.  The 29 year old star performed in Lagos and Calabar back in 2009 and now, Abuja is gearing up for a spectacular show. :)

 I was privileged to attend the press conference and boy, Keri looked cheery and fresh as she showed off her androgynous ensemble. I instantly fell in love with her sleeveless sequined top, it did not only complement the colour of her hair, it also added a splash of pizzazz to her entire look and presented a perfect picture of  ‘glam meets rock.’

The question  of her of impression of Nigeria was met with gusto from the lovely miss Hilson. “My impression of Nigeria is great, I love the music, I love the food. Omg! I love the food. The people are really pleasant, I remember the energy I took home with me the last time and I look forward to that tomorrow.” She also announced that she had jollof rice and chapman for dinner, and on twitter, she said she also had it with naija chicken stew. 

She also needs to try Eba/poundo with egusi/vegetable/okro soup,  abi? lol

Additionally, she declared her love for Flavour’s  ‘Ashawo remix.’  A reporter asked if she knew the meaning of the word ‘Ashawo’ and she replied, “well, I know, now.” *Laughs* "I should have known something from the video, because I was like there is something about these females in this video but.. I just love the sonics, it is sonically pleasing. I don’t  have to know what a song means to enjoy it., not to confuse keri with ashawo though." *laughs*

Interestingly, she is in talks with Congolese crooner, Fally Ipupa,  so we should be expecting a collabo soon. Happy times yea? *wooop wooop*

She plans to visit an orphange in Gishiri before heading back to the states. Bless!

See ya there.
