    was Foluke Daramola brutalised?
    please don’t tell me that is a blush…..please.

    • bisi April 27, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    • Aremu April 27, 2013 at 1:47 pm

      Put a sock in it! You’re not 1st silly!

  • Let them say April 26, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Is this what Foluke Daramola has turn to???Obviously not the Foluke of International Relations of O.A.U days anymore. Passing through school doesn’t mean one is educated.
    Dear Bella Naija, kindly tag Doris Simeon correctly.

  • Choice April 26, 2013 at 8:25 pm

    Beautiful people

  • Idak April 26, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    The event looks tacky and slightly devoid of the class i expected.

  • canadian igbo April 26, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    Zack orji bu ezigbo nwoke biko! The guy is fine even when frowning lol

  • Idak April 26, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    Maybe Bryan Okwara’s outfit and pose are clouding my view of the whole event.

    • Peperempe April 27, 2013 at 12:45 am

      Loool. He looks random in that badly tailored jacket. In fact, the entire outfit is a fail.

      • Cleo April 27, 2013 at 9:15 am

        Like the fabric wasn’t enough to complete Bryan’s trousers….warrahell…..lol

    • NecoleNwaMama April 29, 2013 at 8:20 am

      LOL Bryan needs to stop with the tight jackets and pants…. nothing dapper about that! He comes off looking like a local-champion-wanna-be-stylish-by-force. The only thing helping him now is his handsome face…

  • oma April 26, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    Rita looks good as usual

  • observer April 26, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    the person you labelled Zynell Lydia Zuh is not called Zynell oo. get your facts straight

  • observer April 26, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    Zynell is the next person in red , with the curly hair

  • jade April 26, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    well, some persons were dressed for the ocasion while others…..

  • Godsluv22 April 26, 2013 at 8:35 pm

    Most well dressed attending ceremony I have seen this year…..

    • Speak your mind April 27, 2013 at 3:14 pm

      I couldn’t agree more, most of them looked nice.

  • observer April 26, 2013 at 8:36 pm

Ibenabo=looking younger dan her age but dressed lyk a def!led muslim bride. Beverly is well dressed, infact she is d best here. Bryan Okwara is so hot. Oc Ukeje my role model, u are looking so cool. Keep it up. @AMAA Jury, una oj0r0 to0 much. Justice Esiri was in dat b4 AMAA started but u didn’t honour him. Now in death. If he was alive, am sure he wldn’t have w0n. Rubb!sh.

    • Kaffy April 27, 2013 at 2:08 pm

      Which Rita is looking so old? Please direct your hate somewhere else. You don’t have to belittle others to get your point across…..

    • Joyce May 1, 2013 at 7:36 pm

      If Rita is looking old, I wonder what you look like, ewu. Rita looks stunning for her age.

  • chisco April 26, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    is Bryan planning to have kids?

  • The Real Madam the Madam April 26, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    It’s as if Ibinabo Fiberesima must always show some by force flesh. Cover up every now and then, sister. Thanks in advance.

    As for ol’ girl in the bright red wig, and her home girl – no words.

    • Lilly April 27, 2013 at 10:56 am

      My dear i dont understand this her new style oh. She is a leader she should live by example.

  • Someone April 26, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    Foluke Daramola why are you bleaching? Ehn why???

  • aribelle April 26, 2013 at 9:28 pm

    Many misses!DAMN!

  • Princess MIMI April 26, 2013 at 9:34 pm

    Why did most of them not turn up in an african attire because it is clear they cannot work the western clothing?

  • Mz Socially Awkward.... April 26, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    Linda Ejiofor is the only celeb that stands out for me. Very classy & well put together from head to toe.

  • taiwo April 26, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    people were bored but i have to say i like rita’s dress and the other girl that had the gold dress on with the slit by the leg!#Goodjob
    The girl with the pink dress on and the hair and everything, what were u thinking?

    • Lizzie April 27, 2013 at 1:54 pm

      The girl in the gold dress is Linda Ejiofor. i loved her red pout.

  • Anne April 26, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    i love Zack Orji

  • dimma1 April 26, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    Most of the ladies got it right. Linda Ejiofor, Rita Diminic, Chioma Chukwuka, Zynell and the lady in purple, STUNNING!!

    thatigbochick.com/

  • nene April 26, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    chioma chukwuka looks like a STAR.
    doris simeon is a very beautiful woman.
    those 2 ladies, the blonde and redhead, u both will cause people to have nightmares.
    rita looks good, but is she related to the organizers.
    i never see genevieve, ramsey, omotola, or many of our loved big stars at AMAA, why?
    lastly, foluke daramola u were a beautiful dark skinned woman, why the bleaching? and u need to do something about your weight.
    AMAA still has a long way to go. they need to move the awards permanently to Lagos, when they have perfected otganization, then they can be moving it around to different states and countries. i don’t see the significance of Bayelsa. Enugu makes sense, since most of the nollywood’s first movies were made in Enugu, but Lagos should still be the number 1 venue.

  • jay April 26, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    beautiful,appropriate dressing for the occassion. love rita’s hair do.

  • Gennyz # 1 Fan!!!!! April 26, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    Linda Ejiofor For The Moneyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!

  • gbemmy April 26, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    Fine pple,but me I don’t understand the Riri wanna Be red hair,and foluke daramola looks like a clown with her makeup.

  • ebrufles April 26, 2013 at 11:00 pm

    congrats everyone looked nice apart from a few

  • ediblekisses April 26, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    everyone looks nice n glam apart from Ronald McDonald and Barbie (her hair looks like its ready to take lift off!)

  • libby April 26, 2013 at 11:08 pm

    Damn! Yvonne okoro gurrrl….. You look divine in that dress, Alex and Uti looking “on point” as usual (loovve them … Gorgeous men!!). uche obodo and that girl with her oh lawd of mercy did they by any chance turn up to the wrong event…. How could they go to a “classy” event such as the AMAA dressed like that????…. Smh

  • Myne Whitman April 26, 2013 at 11:32 pm

  • Lisa April 26, 2013 at 11:40 pm

  • Jude Ebile aka Judas Case April 29, 2013 at 4:04 pm

    AMAA DON’T EMBARRASS YOUR GUESTS AGAIN LIKE THAT IN A STRANGE COUNTRY. I READ FROM A WEBSITE THAT KENYAN GUESTS WERE ABANDONED AT THE AIRPORT FOR HOURS, LATER TAKEN TO A “HOTEL” THAT LOOKED LIKE SOME SHIT HOLE, AND WHEN THEY HAD TO EAT, THE HAD TO SHARE SPACE WITH FOWLS. I SAW PICTURES OF THEM AT THE AIRPORT AND CAMEROONIAN FILM MAKERS WERE AMONG. SO I GOT THE CHANCE TO VERIFY THE INFO WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE TRUE. ABOUT THE HOTEL, I JUST CONFIRMED FROM ONE OF YOUR PICTURES ABOVE, A LADY STANDING IN A HALL WAY. DAMN THAT PLACE IS DIRTY. WHAT NERVE!!! PLEASE ORGANISE WELL PLEASE. ALSO TELL US IF YOU ARE ORGANISING A NIGERIAN OR AFRICAN MOVIE ACADEMY AWARDS. BECAUSE AM SCARED THE WHOLE THING WAS SO NIGERIAN INSTEAD OF AFRICAN AS IT IS CALLED. IF YOU WANT TO BE PATRIOTIC, JUST DO A NIGERIAN THING BUT WHEN YOU CALL IT AFRICAN, TRY TO REPRESENT AFRICA. CONGRATS FOR THE INITIATIVE THOUGH. ITS BETTER TO TRY AND FAIL THAN NOT TO TRY AT ALL.

  • Omo1 April 29, 2013 at 5:31 pm

    Oh Gawd!!! Brayn!!!! Uti!!!!! So damn tired of thes duo…with an almost regular look and same robot like poses…borinnnnnnnnnng!!

  • gracie April 30, 2013 at 1:17 am

  • gracie April 30, 2013 at 1:22 am

  • Busola May 1, 2013 at 9:11 am

    Most of the ladies looked lovely (note that I said most), but guys what’s with d poorly cut suits?! Bryan, you shud be flogged, such a damn fine piece of male flesh looking like he wore his ill bro’s outfit. Alex E, very nice suit jus tired of seeing u and Uti sha.
