If not for one of the greatest natural disasters in U.S. history, I never would have met Dami…

I probably would have retained my title as “Socially Awkward Guy Looking For His Petite Yoruba Girl”

All I will say is We thank God LOL…

anyhoo… Tomorrow will mark the 4 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Dami and I where blessed with the opportunity to visit the Blessed city before Dami made her move to New York cirry….

I got to say… If I had the option of living anwhere outside of NYC, New Orleans would be my No. 1 pick…

admist the social regression Post Katrina, there is this reserved beauty that remains. it trips me out…

plus where else will you see paintings from graffiti artist Banksy in the United States (sans NYC of course?)

I was lucky to spot one…

I seriously love New Orleans… it’s one of the reasons why I am so proud to be Southern…

(For all the I.T.K.s I am aware that I am Nigerian but I grew up in the South.. so there)
