  • TruthMustBeSaid May 29, 2013 at 9:24 am

    Congrats lovely Tiwa!

  • Tesonma May 29, 2013 at 9:41 am

    why take a picture of shoe and her in dressing gown. Its not like it is her wedding day. Mention the designers of her outfit and that is okay. This emphasis on Jimmy Choos including giving us a close up of the label to ensure we are not in doubt leaves a sour taste. Class needs to be infused in Nigerian Celebrity!

    • Bunmi May 29, 2013 at 12:09 pm

      True but she’s not the photographer now. Besides, the photographer specializes in weddings so I guess that’s why these photos look like they were taken at a wedding.

    • ‘Dire May 29, 2013 at 8:08 pm

      Totally agree with this comment. Couldn’t ve said better, class speaks for itself.. Always!

    • 4laa May 30, 2013 at 11:00 am

  • Bella May 29, 2013 at 9:50 am

    Jumai’s dress is popping, please can we get a BN style on her, as for that lady withthe lace dress and no undies – WOW!

    • Chikaka May 29, 2013 at 11:11 am

      They are sisters! Well done Tiwa.

  • gistyinka blog May 29, 2013 at 10:00 am

  • kavinchy May 29, 2013 at 10:01 am

    Ice berg slim and that hairstyle…like doesn’t this dude know he’s getting older than this?!

  • hayzey May 29, 2013 at 10:24 am

    She’s gorgeous.

  • Adetokunbo May 29, 2013 at 10:27 am

    From Kele Kele love to her album launch. Now Nigeria has an anwer to America’s Beyonce.

    Tiwa, go gal!!!

    • Amarachi May 29, 2013 at 6:36 pm

      Beyonce??? lol…cool down pls…no where near. Tiwa needs to keep practicing and get a voice coach, have you heard her live?

  • observer May 29, 2013 at 11:01 am

    It’s nice. The whole event looks cool. And Lola A., QCOG, I see you darling!

  • Feyi May 29, 2013 at 11:04 am

    Tiwa u made the best decison for leaving Veronica
    this ur new stylist nailed it. BANG!
    also great photography work esp the shadow image .love it

    • NON June 2, 2013 at 6:47 am

      Feyi to your comment: I think Veronica caught wind of this. She got salty on twitter talking about… “glad people are working with her left-overs.” hahaha…

  • Cool cat May 29, 2013 at 11:10 am

    Jumai Shaba, the best she’s looked in a very longgggg while but why spoil it with those river island shoes from 3 years ago,

    Ify Ejikeme bbnigeria, sun shade inside hotel, do you have Apollo? Nice legs sha but methinks you are too old for this outfit

    Azuka, first time your hair will look laiddddd, now get a make up person, black is beautiful but you could do with some definition

    Tiwa is one of the best dressed celebs in naija now sha, so classy, not too much noise, have people actually LISTEN to you perform your new songs and not lip sync at your album launch. It’s a pity all the mavins were at big brother, but they should have planned it better sha, not a good look that none of them is here.

    • Bunmi May 29, 2013 at 11:52 am

      So they should choose Tiwa’s album listening party over their work?

  • Ronnie May 29, 2013 at 11:29 am

    Love me some Tiwa!!!!

  • Kemi May 29, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    Jide Alakija una fall my hand o! Na wedding she dey do?

  • Kemi May 29, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    lol so she didnt invite toke makinwa? lol.. pele toke? i know say na you for first reach there if you were invited! she def invited classy people

    • Awaiting Moderation May 29, 2013 at 1:20 pm

      I hope this comment has provided you with a better job and has solved your life issues.SMH

      • Adedayo May 29, 2013 at 5:32 pm

        She probably said that because she was dieing to see what Toke would have worn….which makes Kemi a Toke fan.. #Issokay

        U cant attend every party in the industry my dear Kemi…. Its called “having a life” n “Priorities” .Look into it

    • goldfinch May 29, 2013 at 6:30 pm

      you are so mean!

  • Joan May 29, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    Good job, Tiwa. The ambiance was on point, very classy event.
    I just have one question: why was no one from the MAVIN family there? Something ain’t right…

    • Joan May 29, 2013 at 1:23 pm

      Oh just read that they were at BBA, that explains the absence then. Cos those guys always show support for each other. :)

  • The Real Madam the Madam May 29, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    Tiwa is so beautiful. This event looked really lovely.
    Efe Tommy, long time no see. You should remain in scarcity.
    And Iceberg Slim just looks like a damn fool with that hair.

  • jcsgirl May 29, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    Beautiful Tiwa! Bet ehn how do women sit properly with short outfits? I’m just wondering how she sat facing her guests with that dress without showing her sacred chambers

    • Teddy Bear May 30, 2013 at 4:31 pm

      LMBO @ “sacred chambers” :). I’m gonna use that one! Can I? Thank you!!!

  • Derin May 29, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    Wow…nice and classy looking event! Top marks to Tiwa and stylist bolaji Animashaun! Waje looked great, I love Dolapo’s simplicity, Ify big brother very trendy, Franka asindi looked very nice, Latasha Ngwube wow that oleku iro and bubba is so cool and strangely sexy too.
    The WHAT WERE YOU THINKING??? I reserve for the following jokers…Efe Tommy (please Lagos has been sane for awhile, Aisha SHaba…hmn this babe you don’t have conscience, TOsin BUcknor…but why.?
    a
    AND FINALLY…PEOPLE WEVARE GLAD DID NOT TURN UP FOR ONE MORE OUTING…Mai Atafo, vixen Ekwerre, TOke Makinwa . Thank you for not showing up.

  • tatafo May 29, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    I absolutely love Waje!! I don’t know why Olisa Adibua and Noble Igwe rubbed me the wrong way. That dude with grey hair sexy die.

    And Ms. Savage…classy classy classy 100%.

  • corolla May 30, 2013 at 4:31 am

    Tiwa is gorgeous.what was tosyn wresting? The babe needs a stylist asap.always turning up at events, looking like a molue knocked her over.For those asking about Toke,una no dey tire?is the beef not choking you already? Isn’t it time to spit it out? If she was at the event you will talk.jf she wasn’t there, you still still drag her name into it.Y’all are stalkers and you dont even know out.

  • Hurperyermie May 30, 2013 at 8:51 am

    tosyn hmmm i rest my case o waje i love u anytime anyday

  • vhee May 30, 2013 at 9:53 am

    i didnt see teebills in any of these pictures

  • Derin May 30, 2013 at 10:22 am

    What is your own with tee billz? What if he just wants to be behind the scenes? After all, he is her manager, executive producer and fiancée… Some people actually understand making things happen doesn’t necessarily coincide with being seen to make it happen.

    • Omo1 May 30, 2013 at 12:27 pm

      Yes na..is it not her fiance..only normal to see him around

  • Babious May 30, 2013 at 11:33 am

    Aisha shaba,see mind o! Aspiring actress right? she definitely got our attention. the shaba girls are cute sha. congrat Tiwa on ur album launch!

  • EMMY GIRL May 30, 2013 at 12:05 pm

    you people should free my toke joor,bella pls post my comment o

  • Neo May 30, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    Friends and family of Tosyn Bucknor, its time for the intervention. I mean there is a stylish way to wear print, even my 2,5k tailor would work miracles with that fabric, dont even get me started on the shoes.

    I am not one to “hate” but Tosyn seems fab in all other respects her dressing does her no justice whatsoever!

  • Omo1 May 30, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    Looking at the opening pictures I had to rush back to the headies to see if i missed a Tiwa Savage wedding photos…hehehe! Was that necessary? Just my thought sha :D
