Idris Elba - November 2013 - BellaNaija - People's Sexiest Man Alive

And the sexiest man alive is…

Adam Levine. The lead singer of Grammy Award winning pop band Maroon 5 has been crowned People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive.

He takes the honour from Channing Tatum who was the publications’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2012. Adam who is enagaged to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo is elated about the honour.

On being giving the honour: “As a musician, you have fantasies that you want to win Grammys, but I didn’t really think that this was on the table. I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren’t, so that’s cool.”

On keeping fit: He credits yoga and spinning for keeping his stamina up.

Not on the cover but on the list is British actor of Ghanaian/Sierra Leonean parentage Idris Elba.

Luke Bryan, David Beckham & Justin Theroux

Also making this year’s list are American country singer Luke Bryan, talk show host Jimmy Fallon, singer/songwriter Bruno Mars, Suit & Tie music star Justin Timberlake, Chris Pine, Pharrell Williams, Justin Theroux and David Beckham.

I guess fans of the annual title were expecting Ryan Gosling this year. Most of the actor’s fans protested that he was not called the sexiest man alive.

If you could pick a Nigerian male celebrity as the sexiest man alive, who will it be? Let us know!

      No Homo!!If I could pick a Nigerian male celebrity as the
      sexiest man alive, I’d pick that dude in DIWARI – Ogun Mi (Music
      Video). I don’t know his name but dude could make a brother
      question his sexuality ..Seriously No Homo! lol

      Iyke, you spoke! You just spoke! No attempts at poetry or flowery language…what a beautiful thing it is for Iyke to merely speak :)

      • Iyke November 20, 2013 at 3:34 PM

        • Mz Socially Awkward... November 20, 2013 at 5:05 PM

          Iyke, you scoundrel. How dare you flirt with other women after our connection on that other page? I’m heartbroken…. *gathers up petticoats and exits in a huff*

    • ankara November 20, 2013 at 3:48 PM

      Buhahahahah @ dude emphasizing on NO HOMO. I dont know you … im not gonna judge but if another guy will make you question your sexuality. I think you should personally evaluate the gender you are sexually attracted to.

    • Bide November 20, 2013 at 5:04 PM

      Had to watch the video myself*drooling* Brother is fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine

    • Mz Socially Awkward... November 20, 2013 at 5:12 PM

      Adam onye? That practically androgynous looking lad? Abeg,
      this People magazine needs to qualify that statement to “Sexiest
      Man alive as chosen by Americans”. Plus, why did they dust Idris up
      with powder? I don’t see the drool factor…

    • xoxo November 20, 2013 at 5:13 PM

      just watched Dwari’s music video. Dyaaauuum!!!! That Bro. is hot!!!!

    • Iyke November 20, 2013 at 6:41 PM

      @Mz Socially Awkward.

      Lost words…strangely familiar…showed up like a welcome visitor…at the right time…for the right occasion… Oh my perfect coral …… the beauty spot of the jungle….the one whose voice and presence tames the wildest beast….
      You are my sunshine…..the sun in my day…
      The powerful force that keeps my sorrow away.
      The strength of result…of my given self…
      The hallmark of my spiritual regard and health.
      The reason I have reasons…solidly rest…
      Within the fullness of your giving I am blessed.
      So How dare I flirt? You and I know exactly what I ‘love you MORE’ meant……
      Yes am not perfect sweet one…..if indeed you care about that sort of thing…but you know that I am consistent!
      Don’t walk away from me, my lady…….you are my solace ….
      And if this poem touches your heart, please allow me to woo you back again, so that we can live the life that fulfills the promises of our creation.

        Ehn, me as well, I’m going to start considering my other options, kwanu… *bats eyelashes at the other lads hanging out on this forum*

        (& btw, I clicked on the Diwari vid you spoke about… not sure if I should be wearing my bifocals or something but I honestly don’t see the hotness in that bro. Too smooth-looking for my simpler tastes :-D )

        • Bella November 21, 2013 at 1:01 PM

          Mami I agree o. Not for me either. He is too solid and too pumped out na!. different strokes for different folks abi!

      • Iris November 21, 2013 at 12:50 AM

        BN you guys need to introduce Iyke and Ms Socially Awkward
        to each other (and then get them a room, a carriage and smelling
        salts in some kind of medieval setting). And plix find me my own
        Iyke LOL

      • Aibee November 21, 2013 at 9:00 AM

        Haaa! Mz Socially Awkward and Iyke be slaying it on the streets of BN!

      • Loma November 21, 2013 at 2:04 PM

    • Autoprincess November 20, 2013 at 7:09 PM

      Kai, see Iyke wooing our dear Ms. S. A o. And we have. our very first made on BN wedding!!

    • fiesty chic November 20, 2013 at 7:09 PM

      ok also went to look. brother is really fine but a tad short.

    • Sandra November 20, 2013 at 7:35 PM

      See as Iyke just laid it on the table. Oya Mz. Socially Awkward back to you. I am still waiting for our first BN Commenters wedding.

    • rubies November 20, 2013 at 8:08 PM

      Broda hawt sha, yes I looked up the video. *chanting miz S.a* we are waiting for your very robust reply. Forgive Iyke, yu know he didn’t mean it.

    • MsChief November 20, 2013 at 10:14 PM

      oooh! i can finally say I was there when the BN first
      commenters romance gets featured! Miz S.A, you had better give an
      equally romantic, earth shattering reply b4 I am forced to hunt you
      down and give you longggg hiss!

    • Bliss November 21, 2013 at 2:21 AM

      Channing for the win. Adam isn’t bad either except his tats. Ladies want a guy in a suit who can get all down and dirty, but with the tats already its hard to picture u as anything but a knucklehead

    • Nene November 21, 2013 at 7:48 AM


    • Nene November 21, 2013 at 8:08 AM

      OK so I’ve seen Diwari’s video so errr…. scratch LYNXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    • mercy November 21, 2013 at 10:51 AM

      hahahahahaha,omg, i just looked at the video, he is hot no doubt, but please guys the way u over hyped the guy i was expecting to see something, mtcheeew, i have seen hotter, my boyfriend is even hotter if i might add. no pun intended. :D

    • chi chi November 21, 2013 at 11:06 AM

      Sooo my fellow BN’ers, i already have @Iyke and Mz. S.A’s wedding aso-ebi, hit me up for your own 6 yards :)
      As to Adam Levine being the sexiest man alive, he sure is hot, but not my choice for sexiest sha. Vin Diesel should have been on that list for me (that man’s voice is everything).
      In Naija we have Peter Okoye, Lynxxx, Gbenro Ajibade, Chin Okeke, etc. so many options.

    • Asaa November 21, 2013 at 11:35 AM

      Abeg the Diwari video guy is too muscular, a little bit over built and he’s gor fat around his waist. I love the likes of David Beckham biko!

    • babiousblog November 21, 2013 at 2:35 PM

      who is Dwari? i need to go watch the video then. for me in Naija is my one and only Bryan Okpara.

    • doodlz November 25, 2013 at 11:02 AM

      Ah. When is not as if Hugh Jackman is dead. Dear Santa…
