Oh by the way, some gist from the Akon/LL Cool J concert
– Akon’s belt was stolen when he jumped into the crowd…lol….fortunately it was just a puma belt though the security still harrassed people while trying to find it.
– LL gave some ladies roses….they were esctatic
Overall, heard it was a good show

    Bella Naija,

    You gaves kudos to the Catwalk the World Fashion for food show even though it hadn’t even been held at press time (when you posted).

    Don’t you think that is a little fraudulent.

    Enjoy the holidays. Keep bringing us the juicy juice on all things Nigeria for 2007. Thank you for adding me to your blog roll. Can I ask you for a favor. A while ago you mentioned that you know of women in Naija who are suffering from eating disorders. Can you write a post(or send me an email) about this please. I don’t read much again body image and continental African women so I was curious to read what you have observed and your opinion.
