Have the nigerian models got their pay rise then?
from the glum looks on their faces, I’ll have to say I think they haven’t. Naijas sha that pay discrepancy made me want to cry. That’s 25 times the pay for the same work. Couldn’t they just reimburse their flight ticket and that would be it? Iranu. Not even top-name foreign models, not a single one. This is NOT the way forward.
PLS DOES ANYONE KNWS WHAT THEY USE IN MAKING THEIR LEGS SHINE ABEG O HELP A FELLOW BABE O
I would imagine its baby oil. Just mix a little with ur usual body lotion and it’ll give ur legs that shine. At least that’s what I do when I’m rocking minis
ORI(shea butter). That’s what i use. Mkaes ure skin supple and the moisture last for the whole day, i promise! Buy the local one….
Nic thanks.At juwon buh d local shea butter smells.Does it?
annie…it depends. Some smell bad and others don’t. The ones that smell are those mixed with ‘adi agbon’- local cocunut oil but if you are wary of the odour, you could throw in some baby oil, bio-oil, ‘bottled- cooking coconut oil’ or any other natural product. I have been using Shea butter since 2007 and when I tell people and they say it smells, I just ask them “do I smell?” lol…..
lol ohk thanks
She’s right, but tbh mine is actually odourless!!! Just let them know you want it pure and not mixed.
nice but i feel lyk i’ve seen these befre -__-
not a fan of these designs!! they look boring
@takr the nigerian models have not even been paid for last year arise job and they are only paid 30k while the foreign models were paid $2000k plus accomodation and they were all paid before they were flown out to naija.
Wisdom: If you have not been oaid for a job you did the previous year why on earth would you go for the same job when you have absolutely no assurance you’d be paid for the last and present one. I cannot under Nigerian mentality.
I see lots of creativity but TBH alot of these arent so flattering
Nigeria…….progress far sha.
I mean not paying the models
Love d mettalics,nice job
There is no cohesion in this collection whatsoever .
Does model ar sexy,fresh nd young.witout gals n d world u knw wat?
Why do we need foreign models again?
Shea butter for the legs. Baby oil works as well. These designs get comma,
Bone de cash dey like de fame.
why are our male models face more feminine and beautiful than that of the actual female models, i mean their faces are more masculine. But i love toju’s fashion sense, definitely getting the white one on the second pic
because in the world of fashion, gay MEN now run the show. its not like the 90s where a female model actually looked like a FEMALE. nowdays i guess the look is to look like a 12-year old boy. SMH.
not there yet!….no wow factor!this aint africana!gavin rajah stiil d best!
HOTT from head to toe.
Cosign…Stand out piece for me…I’ll rock that look exactly like that.
Toju did well jor!shez one nigerian designer I keep watchin out for..loved most of d outfits..wuld def wear dem
Oopsy! ment ‘Hair and Make up is just too blaa…
Nothing stood out to me. Well except the accessories. Unless she made the neck pieces, I’ll pass on this.
Shea butter + almond oil+olive oil does wonders….;)
This collection is boring #snooze#
*_* sup with the comments, people arent feeling it?! wow. this was one of my faves! theyre totally wearable. Like if i went into a store I could get this for an event you know. Anyone regardless of their size could wear it, and it’s not like the cuts are so drastic that you wonder what garments to wear inside to prevent a fashion disaster.
D black and white jacket was shown last yr,didn’t knw it’s allowed to repeat!
Most look like recycled designs…nothing creative
They are absolutely lovely.
