    nice one, but how come we tend to recognise only tokunbo
    stars cos it seems to me like if you dont go to uk first to sing
    and then come back, you most likely wont make fame

    • BeeRebel January 21, 2014 at 2:13 am

      Waje and Omawumi (and a host of others) are not Tokunbo musicians na

    Tiwa savage….yikes!!!

  • Nok10 January 20, 2014 at 7:51 pm

    Nice pictures, but wait ooo am I missing something – no links for her music or music video. Thats a bit odd for a post promoting a musician.

    • Omolara January 20, 2014 at 8:28 pm

      Is it really that hard to go to Google and type in ‘Ayo Awosika musician’ in the search box? Just my two cents…

      • Nok10 January 21, 2014 at 5:02 am

        @Omolara – yeah it is hard to Google her, lol! Ain’t nobody got time for that:)

    • chi-e-z January 20, 2014 at 8:39 pm

      That’s what I thought she seems like the kind of artist I would like but how can I know if I neve hear a sample of her music not even a chord.

  • Moving On Swiftly January 20, 2014 at 7:56 pm

    Dark lips and nude lips are not for everyone those 2 ladies….*covers face* I hope Ayo can sing and not just another Kaline, Lynxxx or Emma Kobo.

  • Modella January 20, 2014 at 8:43 pm

    Fyn fyn people choi!!!

  • Yemisi January 20, 2014 at 9:14 pm

    Did anyone notice the first pix of Ayo n PraiZ? I love PraiZ but I can let him go for Ayo, mi likey e.

  • JT January 20, 2014 at 10:18 pm

    Yep! I did. They will make such a beautiful couple. hehehehe
    Ayo can SANG, not only sing! She’s got a voice to last manyyyyyyyy miles.
    Oh, and yes, Ayo and Bridget are cousins. Beautiful talented family. I Love!
    Lastly, bag ladies in pic # 11 – pls learn how to properly hold your bags not this one where you are anchoring it as if it’s your life line.

  • Anthony January 20, 2014 at 10:57 pm

    She has a great future in the music scene. I said so!

  • NYstyle January 21, 2014 at 12:38 am

    Brazilian hair has eating peoples hair,see Tiwa’s bald patches..PS A lot of Nigerian chics in the US and African American one don’t use relaxers on their hair..majority are natural hair even when it looks like it was permed NOPE it was flat ironed..chics in Nigerian learn for the best of ur hair.

  • Amakazee January 21, 2014 at 12:59 am

    Banky W and Praiz look very similar in that picture o, why na?

  • Jane January 21, 2014 at 4:15 am

    Tiwa Savage needs to fire her makeup artist

  • Aibee January 21, 2014 at 9:10 am

    Pray tell, what exactly is an American-Nigerian?

  • Abi January 21, 2014 at 6:23 pm

    Is it only me or did anyone else, just for a split second, think that was Naeto C and what happened to him? LOL I had to double take, funny!

    It’s Nigerian-American; like native American or African American, Bella Naija. The event was well put together and everyone was so fresh and so clean. I have to give it up for the staff at the Soul Lounge at Intercontinental, very good service overall.
