    Lol.. that’s hot sha. Nice pictures and scoops gurl.. you give the tabloids a run for their money. WIsh they’ll be smart enough to post pictures along with their online stuff.
    I am more tickled by the presenters ‘outfit’ and ‘Halfro’. Looks like he was on his way to some ‘ Unilag rag day parade'(do they still have those) or was the hair braider unable to finish braiding on time for the red carpet runs. He seems like a very interesting kinda kid, cute too.

    Guys naija is not as backward as you all think. Sometimes those so called away folks are so condescending but I chalk it up to inferiority complex.

    BTW these are not scoops, if you hang around or or go to You will find all this stuff

    Janded Babe, I feel you all the way about Naijas abroad talking as if Naija were some backwater village. Watsup with all these people who don’t know a thing about pride? Why can’t Genevieve wave at fans? This is the mindset that had the yeye producers charging exurbitating amount to have Beyonce perform. Bellanaija, et tu? I’m shocked o.

    U know, Stella is one of the best, now. Genevieve is ever representing. RMD is a cool tall glass of martini. Kingsley Ogoro is a genius; a great thinker and visionary.

    Adaure… no comments.

    Denrele is in a world of his own but gets good feedback. Well, good luck to him.

    And our dearly beloved Bella. What’s up?
