ADVERT REVIEW: SAMSUNG ADVERT “LOVE IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON ‘THIS PARTICULAR SCENE IS SO …’


So, it is called “Love is the reason for the season”

THE ADVERT
It’s valentine and a certain guy is expecting his girlfriend at his place. He plans to give her a unique romantic treat on valentine, so he starts out by taking care of his body. He shaves, brushes his teeth and cleans up generally, all to look good for his girlfriend. He afterwards sets the mood for the valentine. He starts out by arranging the candles on the floor in a love shape after which he lights them. He then pours roses on the floor, switches off the light, takes off his clothes, and then uses a leaf to cover his front. (If you know what I mean)

However, when his girlfriend visits him, she opens the door and doesn’t notice his presence talk less of his romantic treat. She enters the room, picks up her phone and starts chatting (who exactly? I really don’t know). This boy tries to get her attention but he is unable and this saddens him.

That girl naturally must be a stingy girl. I mean on valentine, she just walks into her boyfriend’s house (she herself no carry gift o for the guy) and doesn’t check around for him, but the next thing she does is pick up her phone and starts chatting. That scene is quite unrealistic to me. If they had done the advert in the form that the girl took note of what the guy did but was not freaked about the treat, it would have been better. But that she just entered the house without looking at the sitting room; na wash, I mean it is not possible.

Just wondering
• I don’t quite agree with this advert- who are their targets? The rich, average? Certainly not the poor ones, perhaps the rich only. It says do something bigger. When you have the money or you don’t?


• It is also discouraging in that some men who may not be rich may resolve into doing something dubious all in the bid to do something bigger for their girlfriends.
• I don’t want to believe the guy didn’t cook dinner or buy gift for the lady, there has to be something more. I mean what kind of valentine would that be na?

• The part where the word “Sorry lover boy, try something bigger” popped up on the screen, should have appeared on the scene where they showed the guy, and not the girl. It made it look like the girl was cheating on the guy. So is the Samsung advert saying that if a guy can’t afford something big, the girl should move to a guy that can afford something big? Well just wondering…

DURATION: 51 SECONDS (LESS THAN A MINUTE)

Love the advert though, but it could have been better

UNIVERSITY LECTURERS ARE THE MOST STINGY PEOPLE, YET THEY CAN SEND YOU ON ERRAND TILL YOU ALMOST SHOUT HAHA!


LECTURERS ARE THE MOST STINGY PEOPLE, YET THEY CAN SEND YOU ON AN ERRAND TILL YOUR FEET START THROBBING AND YOU SHOUT HAHA!

Infact they can send ghosts on errand self. When I say stingy, I don’t mean stingy with marks or grades. NO! Trust me, when you go on errands for them well, they will dash you free marks.

But my concern is lecturers that are stingy monetary and material wise. They are not openhanded; they are tightfisted. They are not generous at all. They do not believe in giving, they only believe in receiving to fatten their pockets more so that they can keep building a lot of houses,some of them don’t even buy cars for themselves- Chai!

They like to claim they are broke (na big lie), meanwhile if you check them, most of them always move around with ‘thousands’ in their bags or place inconspicuously in their offices on daily basis; they hardly keep money in the bank.

Sending people on errands is their hobby. It is on default for them and they tell lies a lot. As jovial as some of them may be, not a penny can fall from their pocket , and if you are lucky to get any penny from them, trust me it would be something they can’t even give their children.

I have overtime studied most of them and I can assure you that I have never seen anyone as stingy as these lectures. Recently, a former lecturer of mine gave me a research work to carry out for her. I spent money upon money, data upon data, nights upon nights just to do her work, only for her to tell me ‘don’t worry, I will fix you up’

Meanwhile, we would like to get your view. Lecturers are stingy. Agree or disagree?

“EVERYTHING ABOUT HER OOZED OUT GOLD” A TRIBUTE TO THE LATE DYNAMIC MUSIC STAR- GOLDIE HARVY

TRIBUTE TO GOLDIE HARVEY



Just like her name ‘Goldie’ everything about late dynamic musician Susan Adebimpe Harvey best known with the stage name “Goldie” oozed out gold. From her eye-catching videos to her flamboyant fashion style, down to her exquisite accessories and then to her luminous body which illuminated the whole place as well as brought live to her videos.

The British Nigerian pop artiste, studied business management at the University of Sunderland, UK. The Ekiti lady had five other siblings comprising three girls and two boys.

Goldie’s music career started in 2007 and ended abruptly in 2013 following her death on the 14th of February, 2013. She died after returning from the 55th Grammy awards. She complained of headache to her best friend at that time- Denrele edun, who rushed her to her official hospital in Victoria Island- Reddington. Sadly, Goldie never made it out of the hospital alive. She didn’t live to see another break of the day. She was later buried on the 25th of February at Vaults and Gardens cemetery, Ikoyi lagos

In a world were most musicians are associated with drugs, Goldie’s sudden death made tongues wag that the late musician was into drugs but an autopsy carried out by the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja countered such public notion, revealing the true cause of her death. According to their report, the creative singer died as a result of hypertensive heart disease.

Goldie was signed to Kennis record label before her death and had terrific sounds which were accompanied with colourful videos that were really entertaining to watch. She was expressive, had self-worth, highly sophisticated, a big spender and a lot more…

Even though Goldie died on a very popular day , a day set aside for love birds, a day set aside to show love to people “Valentine’s day” which means all would certainly not forget her as they can’t forget valentine, it is however ironical that media houses hardly remember or say anything about her death. It is also appalling that as the musician died, her songs also died with her as media houses seem to have quickly moved on to the works of only those that are still breathing. Meanwhile, it is hardly like that overseas, up till today, I still hear about 2pac, at times the way he is mentioned, you had think he was still alive.

Meanwhile Goldie was one tenacious lady, classy, resilient, eccentric, a go getter who was not intimidated by the male counterparts who dominated the music scene at that time. She kept on striving and aiming for the top. She was certainly the envy of her female counterparts in the industry. However, she was in no competition with anyone; she had her own type of song and brand. She was one of the female musicians in the country that paved way for other female musicians to start gaining immense recognition. Also, she was the only lady that spent so much to shoot a video and that capability is yet to be taken up by any Nigerian female musician; they spend also but not like goldie did.

She gave her best (financially and materially) to make her videos outstanding and the most talked about. She gave her best to build her music career. She was the only musician during her time that brought out a huge sum of money and spent it on videos just to make it standard and leave the audience staring at the scene.

Goldie Harvey was one person that stayed off scandals, though her appearance on the Big brother Africa game brought so much attention on her where people thought she was having an affair with housemate- Prezzo, little did they know that she wasn’t interested in him as late Goldie was already married to Engr Andrew Harvey but kept her marriage a secret. She was no doubt a kind of person that loved privacy and was not always too comfortable when asked questions. Goldie has a lot of awards to her name.

I was a great fan of hers; I loved the resilient spirit in her. She kept striving despite the little or no space the female musicians were given in the music industry at that time.

We at ‘OGEFASH’ Blog remember and honour Goldie Harvey and pray that her soul continues to rest in peace.

Her last songs two songs before her death were ‘SKIBOBO’ were she tried to create her own unique dance step, the video garnered over a million view on youtube, and ‘MILIKI’ FT NAVIO
