    Enjoyment kids….

    Nepotism at it’s worst, they probably call Hon Abike “Auntie”. Those who are actually making a mark in their own fields get bylines, while two young women who’s only claim to fame is their last name get the cover. Stop trying to make these bootleg Hilton sisters happen.

      You know….you can always change your last name to match theirs …..let’s see how that works out for you.

      Judging people from afar is such a terrible habit…….and remember that no one chooses the family they’re born into. As long as someone is causing no harm, live and let live. Focus on your own life and your own goals instead of setting others’ for them. What have you done lately? Btw….You don’t have to be a rich kid to make a positive difference. You can start by being nice and positive towards others.

      Well, that’s life for you. Nepotism is everywhere. Blame life, not them for not having a last name that take you higher. You can’t hate or completely knock their hustle out because of their last name. It’s ridiculous. Bootleg hilton sisters? There’s nothing bootleg about the odetola girls. The Hilton sisters are nothing to be compared to, girls who went only known for partying hard and sleeping around. Until they got too old, Paris went into business and the other married a Rothschild. They got everything bcos of their last name, so why hate on these girls for no reason. Go odetola girls.

    If I say my mind some people will think I’m beefing. Beautiful girls though #ok bye#

    Hmmm. At what point do we state the obvious without insulting these poor little girls, which is that given the amount of wealth at their disposal to climb heights unprecedented, they are underachievers? I love that Cuppy is working and the TEmi kid is trying to be socially available now instead of causing chaos and drugging out but sorry, travelling to exotic places, playing mixes of other people’s songs and getting ambassadorial roles because your parents are obvious bankroll candidates does not give you a headline position. I wish they would take on fashion design or start their own Nigerian ankara factory or a music school or an art gallery to promote Nigeria’s art if they are only inclined in the arts, which is just great. So much money at their disposal, so much nothing coming out of it that it is disturbing. I just got off the Charly Boy writeup on Bennet Omalu. Omalu is the caliber of people we need to present. I have at least 100 NIgerians in my very very very small rolodex who are crushing it out in the United States and breaking barriers without the kind of financial backing these kids have. They are highly sought after for what they bring to the table and this is Hon Dabiri’s best. I think the issue here is that the honorable is disconnected from the reality of Nigerians in diaspora.

      but having a rich fada doesnt mean u r bank-rolled by Hollywood tho. if u do a lil more research u will c all their dad has done 4 dia entertainment careers is give them his last name. they r working hard. pls give it up

    • Homa January 25, 2016 at 8:11 pm

      What did you achieve at their age? Temi is an undergrad who blogs about fashion like a lot of undergrads do. She should leave her education and open a factory???? Cuppy is also still a student. They have a following because people are interested in their lives. Their parents are also introducing them to the business side of things. Blogging and DJing is putting money in their pockets. Regardless they must start somewhere and climb to the top. If he makes them Directors in Forte Oil you will still come here and complain.

    What r d criteria to b on a mag cover?

  • tunmi January 25, 2016 at 9:16 pm

    The cover looks like a Computer Graphics student’s work. The image just doesn’t gel well.

    But looky here:
    1. Anne-Marie Imafidon, a child prodigy doing great things in technology and science
    2. Temidire Alesh, a neuroscientist with a passion for volunteering
    3. Dr. Sam Achilefu, whose groundbreaking ‘cancer goggles’ may bring great improvements in the treatment of the disease.

    Now these three people, I want to know about.

    THis was my fear – comments from @Homa and fd62kola will view this as a personal attack on the ladies. I actually admire them for leading lives free of drama and we know they could have had an overdose of that if they wanted. They are well raised and carry themselves respectably in public. Still, with the currency they have in cash and in their network, there has to be more – see Chelsea Clinton as an example. This issue is at a fundamental level a question of what the honorable’s magazine is supposed to accomplish. Perhaps I am wrong but I envision that the goal of writing about diasporans is to promote collaboration between diasporans and in-country folks, promote innovation, share new ideas, highlight the talent we have lost to brain drain, spark discussions about leveraging this talent that is in diaspora, inspire us, etc. Maybe I am wrong.

      You are very right my darling. God forbid that you give positive critique to “the hilton” sisters
