Shuga Launch in Lagos - June 2013 - BellaNaija 053

You loved the MTV Base series Shuga when we featured it on BellaNaija in 2012, now the hit show is back again.

On Tuesday 25th June 2013, some of your favourite celebs gathered at the Wheatbaker Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos for the launch of the MTV Staying Alive Foundation campaign series – Shuga, an award winning TV drama about sex, youth and relationships.

MTV Base and MTV Staying Alive Foundation joined forces with the Nigerian government’s National Agency for the Control of AIDS and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to combat a lack of awareness and misinformation about HIV, sexual responsibility and teen pregnancy among Nigerian youth, using the medium of Shuga.

Toke Makinwa, Alex Ekubo, Eku Edewor, Uti Nwachukwu, Chris Attoh, Tosyn Bucknor, Gbenro Ajibade, Beverly Naya, IllBliss, Oreka Godis, Jumai Shaba and Olisa Adibua were some of the stars present at the event.

      Love Jumai’s hair.

    • Clo June 27, 2013 at 3:59 PM

      An event with simplicity of class. Beverly Naya is illustrating to Toke Makina how beautiful black is gosh that girl *_*. That Mary girl jeans looks dirty, Ehize guy needs some Ham Burger like myself, Chris Attoh is so fine. Akward looking people, fashion with class people, grown people, good event, Nigeria’s entertainment industry is excelling more day day day.

    • Kemi June 27, 2013 at 4:02 PM

      i do not like toke’s hair! she looks ridiculous! she looks ill!!!

      • goldfinch June 27, 2013 at 6:44 PM

        WTF is your problem?
        You don’t like her weave, you don’t like her box braids. So what do you like? Her -?
        Please get lost……….mschewww.

    • k June 27, 2013 at 4:03 PM

      olisa adibua pls hit the gym asap. for your health and to get rid of that the pot belly.

    • Chum chum June 27, 2013 at 4:15 PM

      Beverly Berverly Beverly way to go girl…. always on point.

    • funmi June 27, 2013 at 4:18 PM

      All haaaaaa sheeeee. Nice peeps

    • Teddy Bear June 27, 2013 at 4:34 PM

      Beverly Naya looked beautiful! Although I wish she would have opted for a white top instead of a black one. That would have perfected the ensemble. Chris Attoh is very handsome.

    • Ify June 27, 2013 at 4:34 PM

      lol@ms jayee`s comment, dear Toke can we see you without weave or braids

      • Adeola June 27, 2013 at 7:22 PM

        She has shown the world o her natural hair, very long…..about 14 inches long, won’t tell straight away it is her hair. Check her IG or blog or keek for evidence. Madam Toke, stick to braids or your pixie cut or your natural face……all brings out the bone structures on your face making it fab!!. The super long continental (Brazilian,mmogolian, Indian and co) hair cover up your natural face beauty.

      • Sandra June 28, 2013 at 12:03 AM

        A couple of weeks ago she had just her hair with no weave. Regardless of what she does to her hair (braids, weaves, her hair, bald) you guys would have something to rant about it.

    • oSinakachi June 27, 2013 at 4:38 PM

      What if uti has k leg? Has it now become a crime for pple to have k legs? Every human being is born with a flaw abeg!

    • Idak June 27, 2013 at 4:46 PM

      Olisa and these his waist coats. This is the black one,abi? I guess it was BOGOF. This black and that red one.

    • Idak June 27, 2013 at 4:46 PM

      See Shalewa o!

    • Idak June 27, 2013 at 4:47 PM

      These our people no go kill me for formings. Which one be Zed-Eye? Ngozi were kwa nwayo.

    • ziki June 27, 2013 at 5:01 PM

    • Buks June 27, 2013 at 5:01 PM

      First time Tosyn Bucknor has looked manageable.I like toke with her braids!

    • Luch June 27, 2013 at 5:19 PM

      Mr Uti, so those are the legs you use to pose that ridiculous pose of urs. LOL. Abeg, who dey always give Olisa suit?

    • Chikaka June 27, 2013 at 7:08 PM

    • Idak June 27, 2013 at 7:09 PM

      somkele iyamah and gbenro ajibade (without that awful tiht shirt) are hottest people in the room. i hope this somkele becomes a nollywood actress, she has a gorgeous face and her acting is quite good. toke’s braids don’t look good.

      @ Aby, appears black…

    • Mujer Casada June 28, 2013 at 5:05 AM

      Unfortunately TOke looks 50 and very wrinkly. Sad to see that she can only rock a style that covers her face. She looks very ethnic, which is great if that is what she celebrates. It isn’t per her style, so very off. Sorry…..

    • Jewelz June 28, 2013 at 8:33 AM

      Chris Attoh i have a major crush on this dude!

    • Annie June 28, 2013 at 9:00 AM
