      YAY!!! Naija ppl are back to rocking natural styles one by one…whether it be braids, unrelaxed hair or their own hair! I’m so excited! Can’t wait until it is mainstream!!!

      • goldfinch May 22, 2013 at 6:17 PM

        I thought I was the only one that noticed that too.

        • Teddy Bear May 23, 2013 at 12:56 AM

          No oh! I noticed well, well!!! I’m not-so patiently waiting for it to become the norm!

        • Teddy Bear May 27, 2013 at 2:34 PM

          Abi! One can do so much with it! Though I must admit, it can be very frustrating at times but in my opinion, it’s worth it!

      • Claus Von Stauffenberg May 23, 2013 at 12:58 PM

        Is the ratio of weaves lower than normal? I feel like it’s still predominantly weaves dominating the pictures.

    • Bolade May 22, 2013 at 6:11 PM

      Dakore is so gorgeous! I’m glad she’s back on d scene, she was great in Journey to Self!

      I love the colour of that towel Rita Dominic has on. So striking.

      • Knut May 22, 2013 at 11:37 PM

        I squint, I cross my eyes, I blink several times, I look with one eye open, I try and I try but I can’t get Rita Dominic’s outfit to look like anything other than a towel. Sigh……

      • Straight4ward May 22, 2013 at 11:38 PM

        Yes o my dear, she decided to come in her towel….How original!

      • Teddy Bear May 23, 2013 at 12:54 AM

        • Tony May 23, 2013 at 3:50 PM

      • Pace May 22, 2013 at 8:37 PM

        Best thing about Rita D as always, is that two months from now, we will gerrit but we will forget who wore it first

        • deep May 23, 2013 at 6:13 AM

          Rita’s color blocking is onn point n her dress could have mmade a true statement if not for the cheap/tacky fabric (as has become regular 4 her) and the lack of a FUNCTIONING PRESSING IRON!!!

    • Chyke May 22, 2013 at 7:39 PM

      Rita: try!ng to luk lyk a fashion icon but not doing it so well as it seems so 4ced. I lyk d towel dress though. Kate: luking ageless. Nse realy tried dis tym @least am not seeing doz neck ve!ns dat usually screams ‘age n0t on my syd’. Lol. Nice one, keep it up. Bryan dear, luking so gud but I think you shld do some shaving. Ebuka is luking cool.

    • fred May 22, 2013 at 7:59 PM

      Rita’s outfit rocked and thats why they used her as the album cover. she killed it mehn thumbs up.. you go girl

      • Winny May 22, 2013 at 8:12 PM

        NAY
        Nayy Rita’s cheap towel rag is an epic fail and Bella failed even more for using it as a cover.
        Riri dear the pounds are showing,time to tone those arms and shoulder

        • ikunkun May 22, 2013 at 8:29 PM

      Pisho number 4 – Paul Obaseki or Paul Obazele?

      Rita Dominic looking fresh and beautiful tho I don’t get this her towel/ wrapper moves – yet. Maybe in two months’ time, like someone said, the penny will drop.

    • Africhic May 22, 2013 at 10:01 PM

      • Africhic May 22, 2013 at 10:01 PM

      Totally love Rita’s wrap/dress. Different, simple and she wore it well.

    • NNENNE May 23, 2013 at 2:52 AM

    • Hurperyermie May 23, 2013 at 8:15 AM

      RITA i see u r wrapper o dakore, kate, nse u guys look sweet

    • Kamal May 23, 2013 at 8:21 AM

      Omoni Oboli is a good actress and nice looking too, but she needs a stylist as a matter of urgency!

    • Doks May 23, 2013 at 9:34 AM

      Dakore – effortlessly chic.
      Rita – hmmm. what happened naa? tru true t looks like ou just wrapped a towel aroung you self, or a pice of fabric. Abi your dress tear for road? Maybe you just dashed to Yaba, bought a few yards of silk, drapped around yourself and hoped we would “adopt” it as the new fashion trend. bia nne, we are not fooled. You got it wrong this time

    • Chikaka May 23, 2013 at 9:38 AM

      Glad to see the Governor is back and looks healthy. Oronto Douglas; anywhere there are Nollywood actresses he’s bound to be there. *coughs* Omoni Oboli; shakes head.

    • pynk May 23, 2013 at 10:23 AM

      Omono bikonu, green eyes and lace front kwa!

    • I No Sabi May 23, 2013 at 10:49 AM

    • Ola Brown May 23, 2013 at 12:04 PM

      Omoni Oboli failed this time jor, the hair is a mess, the make up and i hate the shoes.
      Nse…….nice, do i see a baby bump????
      Rita…… hmmmmm wrap gone wrong, u try sha
      Kate, Dakore…. nice on

    • Me2me May 24, 2013 at 10:20 AM

      If you dont get Rita’s dress then you obviously are clueless when it comes to fashion and style. She wore it and she rocked it big time. Kai them shoes mtchwwwwww. Rita you forever do it for me. As for Omoni, I think you have bad friends, By now they should have told you that your hair is extremely horrible, tufiakwa. such a pretty woman yet u no one gree change. Twig somethings and ul look beautiful and get more roles. Plssssss

    • be real May 24, 2013 at 11:20 AM

      OMG..rita kills it every time..lookn fab

    • Nollywood REinvented May 24, 2013 at 4:34 PM
