    • bimpe November 25, 2013 at 10:40 AM

      What type of ugly magazine cover is that? And it’s suppose to be new… I don’t think so ‘sonny jim’. no offence but that’s probably the worse picture of monalisa ever. She needs to asaply remove it

      Monalisa, the only luxury thing you’ve ever experienced is that JBL dress on you.

      Why is your skin being washed out on the cover too? I tire.

    • Adaku November 25, 2013 at 1:15 PM

      Monalisa is really looking like her magazine….Luxury!!

    • Tegaa November 25, 2013 at 1:20 PM

      I saw the pics on her stylist instagram
      @jenniqueconsulting, she looked lovely and i also heard the
      magazine is on point. Kuddos lisa

    • Autoprincess November 25, 2013 at 1:34 PM

      Ahn, ahn, BN, since when do you diss people with your
      headlines? Why place the word ‘luxury’ in quotation marks now,
      please leave the dissing to us. I actually read it and lifted my
      fingers in the air to indicate the marks, lol.

      • Idak November 25, 2013 at 4:15 PM

        BN, no try at all.
        If they join the dissing queue,folks like us will be rendered jobless.
        BN,leave the dissing to experts BTL.

      • Leah November 25, 2013 at 6:24 PM

        Lol! I know, we got this right?

      • Iris November 25, 2013 at 10:50 PM

        LMAO the “luxury” headline was the first thing I noticed too. But BN we are accommodating. We welcome you down to our level of poor behaviour and rudeness.

    • Chic November 25, 2013 at 2:03 PM

      Terrible cover!

    • lol November 25, 2013 at 2:13 PM

      in other news Ruky Sanders shoes are to die for.

    • adelegirl November 25, 2013 at 3:20 PM

      After reading that expose by the former editor of this magazine, I haven’t quite felt the same way about Monalisa. I guess time will tell with the success or failure of this magazine, if his allegations are true.

    • nene November 25, 2013 at 3:43 PM

      i like her hair and outfit. but why do people call monalisa beautiful? is it just her skin tone? let see just how this “luxury” magazine will do.

      • nene November 25, 2013 at 3:45 PM

        methinks monalisa is “selling” something else with this outfit and magazine cover. nollywood hustling, more grease to your elbows, just remember your daughter.

    • Dash November 25, 2013 at 3:48 PM

      Hmm…comparing a mag that doesn’t tell anything from its cover and the publisher, to Oprah’s OW is serious mockery. Monalisa, if u don’t have an experienced editor, get one. If u do, listen to her. That’s if u want this to b a success. Magazine publication aint no beans.

    • Nesstradamus November 25, 2013 at 4:16 PM

      don’t mean to be mean but they should have contoured her nose for the cover now :( at least let it have a bridge x_x

    • Felinda November 25, 2013 at 4:22 PM

      Luxury ko Luxury Ni,cheiiii

    • Teddy Bear November 25, 2013 at 5:49 PM

      I really like Monalisa’s dress. Very stylish. Rukky Sanda looks very well put together. I’m feeling her outfit. If she hired a stylist, I hope she keeps this person on her team. :)

    • Leah November 25, 2013 at 6:26 PM

      Love her dress though.

    • nancy joseph November 25, 2013 at 10:08 PM

      She is slowly aging. well done Mona

    • Jesseswife November 26, 2013 at 3:01 AM


    • Robin Hood November 26, 2013 at 7:09 AM

      That nose

    • faddy"swife November 26, 2013 at 8:20 PM

      wrong move!totally wrong. would have styled

    • pineapple November 27, 2013 at 2:17 AM

      What kind of rubbish shoe is rukky sanda wearing????? does she not have a stylist

    • mercii November 27, 2013 at 2:46 PM

      d cover page did not just do justice. great idea for her to start her own magazine though!
