ASHIONYE IN TRUE LOVE WA

Hey Everyone,
First things first! HAPPY EASTER!!!!!!!!
So sorry that I didn’t say so earlier but its still Easter Monday so its not too late.
So how did you celebrate? I had a really great weekend starting Thursday night. I got a home-cooked dinner…tres fabulous. The whole Easter weekend was quite interesting.
I am so excited because T-Minx is back to blogging, so endeavour to check out her new updates and blog design.
Anyways, a lot of people have been asking about the Nigeria’s Next Top Model….don’t worry, I got you covered.

I just realized that I haven’t featured anything from my favourite mag, True Love WA in a while. I was reading last month’s issue which had entertainer, Ashionye Michelle Ugboh on the cover styled by the uber-talented Omoyemi Akerele and it just cracked me up.
I really admire Ashionye’s drive for success. The girl is truly a go-getter!
That said, her statement that she ‘acquired her American accent when she stayed with her Aunt and Uncle in the USA for nine months when she was 9 years old and that it has stuck ever since’ got me shaking my head….LOL. Only in Nigeria really!


That’s it for today.
Please leave your comments…
You can always email me with any ideas or suggestions as well – [email protected]
Have a blessed week!

    It may sound funny but there’s something about the development of accent in kids, anything they learn at that stage becomes permanent 4 real. I have dis cousin dat went to US around 10yrs after primary skul education, she came back after 13months to continue her secondary skul in 9ja (AIS lagos) merely after completing grade 7. She also had dat American accent which was weird but REAL.

    its completely possible that the accent stuck…its much easier to loose your naija accent at a young age, and nine months is a reasonable length of time, also it depends on who she interacted with when she came back, fellow yankee ppl? i mean if one can go to obodo oyinbo at a young age and not loose the h factor almost ten years later (personal story) why cant the reverse be possible…

    i guess it all depends on how real her american accent is

    lesson: dont hate lol…i just dey play oh

    That is absolute NONSENSE! I started JS 1 at 9(left from primary 4) and I had lived in America for a year by that time as well. What is she on? PUUUUHLEASE! What about kids that spent primary school in jand or yanks and by the time they are in JS3 are full fledged Nigerians? She should just admit that she is faking the funk. She is like Ify on Big Brother Nigeria(well that one just travelled for the first time after that show). FAKE FAKE FAKE.

    To promote that a foreign accent makes you better is not only backward but extremely irresponsible.

    It’s believable that the accent stuck, it really depends on the age 4 – 9 yrs are like sponges!!

    anyhoo, for those who don’t know. Who is Ashionye?!

    wow, i think it’s possible for an accent to kinda hang around. It is sort of like learning a new language. There are people who learnt french when they were very young and they still remember it today. I wonder how she sounds. I guess that should be left to the folks abroad. Coz many nigerians just speak phonetics and not the real american accent.

    hey bella i think i commented on Ashionye’s accent in one of ur past blogs when u featured music 9ja divas..
    she is too fake pls…did u ever listen to her on cool fm…she sounded razz her accent is irritating…and besides..what is annoying is that she said the accent has helped her career and most annoyin of all she refered to the 9ja accent as LOCAL!wtf!i mean she said the accent is LOCAL…wat is local and what is not local..an accent is an accent..who said american accent is the ultimate and urs is local..i was totally disgusted at her..and she ven went to one razz polytechnic in 9ja is it Ekpoma state uni or something like that!the babe is SHALLOW,PERIOD!

    @ anonymous ur cousin came back and went to AIS that is an american schl so she may not have lost the accent!

    i have a ncousin who was born in naija,her mum won visa lottery when she was just 2 and she moved to yankee.
    when she started to yarn her mumsy that “MAMA U MUST BE CRAZY” etc,quick quick her mum deported her back to naija,and she was aged 7 already.
    she lived in yankee for FIVE YEARS,AND TALKED IN A RIDICULOUSLY THICK AMERICAN ACCENT.
    after 5 MONTHS IN NAIJA,MY COUSIN DON DEY SING OBESERE SONGS WITH SERIOUS agbero accent,did not have a yankee accent APRT FROM A FEW WORDS LIKE WATER,COLOR ETC(SHE ONLY COULDNT DROP ROLLING HER R’S)
    and she goes to a very very good school in lagos.one of the best.
    when she goes on holidays THRICE A YEAR TO AMERICA,naturally the accent comes on once she is back in naija,but after a few weeks its over.

    so i dont know why this fake ass broke down beyonce wanna be is talking about.making a ridiculous statement THAT SHE GOT AN ACCENT FROM AN EXTENDED HOLIDAY AT THE AGE OF 9?
    infact she should be made to dobale and kobokod for that foolishness.

    only in nigeria would anyone think that having a foreign accent is a BIG FRIGGING DEAL.well it would be to her.

Fake accent fake hair, fake complexion just like d gal featured in Bellas last blog wit d orange complexion or peach. All these ppl making noise about fake.. who doesnt have a fake something, a fake fendi spy bag or speedy bag? ehn? fake hair.. we are not perfect so let Ashionye enoy her fake sunting. LOL. LuV u BeLLa keep it coming cutie pie.

    In fairness to our home girl, she did say that in our society, an accent can be very useful. Sadly, she is right. Anyone who knows Ashionye knows she is one of the realest people around. She doesnt take herself – accent included too seriously.

    Bella, how you dey? Some really famous person just sent me a text some two hours ago asking: ‘Who is Bella Naija’?!! And he isnt the first – This blog is really going places, trust me!

    Abeg, the girl is too ugly and full of herself. She is the beyonce of the group, having an accent helped her career, blah, blah, blah, I can’t stand fake people like her. American accent does not make you superior and shouldn’t help you get a job. I live in the states and have being here for over 11 years… truly i have an american accent but when I’m speaking with my nigerian friends/family, I talk in naija accent with a pang of yankee accent (some words just come out naturally with an accent).

    Please– she’s toooooooo razz and ugly for all the shit she’s saying:-)) 9months + Yanke= American Accent. WHATEVER!!!

    I hope she goes back and read the mag and realize what she may be doing to reputation. (hisssinggggg)

    I just can’t fathom the idea of someone actually saying this and say their educated as well. Naija babes never seem to stop amusing me….

    Did this chick ever come back to live her America since she was 9? If not, she fronting. I go back and forth with my accent involuntarily, but it depends on whom I am speaking with, with my grandmom she will not understand me normally so i have to try to break it down not so easily and sometime if i am in constant contact with friends back in Liberia I tend to go in and out with my accent. I have been here for a long time now too, and I can’t explain myself or keep a conversation without the america accent taking over. you get use to it from school, college and work. I try to speak like others when i am in their countries but its still there and people can tell.

    9 year olds do see a great deal in having an accent. On her return to NGR I think Ashinoye quickly discovered it gave her an edge above other kids and so she made an extra effort (though hilarious) to maintain it.
    Point is it depends on how much value/esteem the kid places on her new ‘gift’.At the same age my elder sisters lived in the US for abt 2 years. On their return they obviously sounded cooler than the other kids but they lost the Americana touch in no time cos repeating statements over and over again to people was more frustrating than fun.

    BELLA,
    thank you very much for showcasing me on your blog.
    to everybody else out there,i cannot really be bothered that you are all jealous of my accent.
    its not my fault that my accent has refused to be diluted by all your local nigerian accents.
    i speak in an american accent and i will do so for the rest of my life.
    and to you LINDA IKEJI,of course you will know all about american accents seeing that you snatched one from his original owner.

    i dont give a toss what you haters and losers think.
    my accent has made me a star in nigeria.
    and while all you lowlifes sit behind your comouter and talk rubbish,i am mingling with the high and mighty.

    once again thank you very much bella for giving me some more needed exposure.

    Whether you like it or not her ‘unusual’ accent helped her get a job as a radio presenter and the True Love mag spread!
    I even applaud that at age 9 she was smart enough to realize that to get ahead in life, you have to set yourself apart from the rest.

    So if you want, don’t find what works for you to get ahead in life, be sitting in front of your computer at your boring 9-5 j.o.b while your fellow young nigerian is getting to be on the cover of magazines!

    i think the accent thing was really stupid. does she want to tell us that since she was 9yrs old and she is now like twenty something rite that she hasn’t lost her accent? its not like she stayed over there for years, but just 9 months. She’s just a faker. Like jim iyke and the others. And i could not see the pics. i dnt know y

    All dis one una dey talk never touch matter….. Has True Love lost it? How does Ashionye get a cover? Her singing hurts. I actually bought that album(6 measly tracks) and after aural torture am ready to start a petition BEGGING her to stop! How did she get such a huge deal with billboards, True Love covers(im beyond disappointed), stylist and all. How does an ad agency buy into this mess? Did you see the picture of her (legs akimbo almost pushing everyone off the shot) with the Tetmosol Girl reloaded concert chicks? Its speaks volumes…..
    There are other young Nigerian female artistes who couldve made the cut…. Keffe, Bouqui, Weird Mc, Muma Gee, Ynka Davis, (fill in the rest)or do they need Oyinbo accents as well?….. hmmmmm maybe Ashionyes got a point there
