Photo of the Week: Genevieve Nnaji @ the Ade Bakare Exhibition/Competition.She looks f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s from head to toe!

Hey Everyone,
How are you guys doing? I had the most amazing week even though I am now suffering for it…my whole body hurts and my voice is halfway gone! I went for a concert last night and all I can say is WOW! I sang along, I screamed, I jumped around, I danced! Woot woot…Good times…
Meanwhile, I am really hoping to have a very chilled, laid-back weekend but we’ll see how it goes because one of my friends is having a BBQ this weekend.
So many changes are coming through for me in the next couple of weeks (those who know…know LOL)…and I am sooo excited. Also, wanted to send a big kiss to my dear NY/NJ friend, O. Each day I value our friendship more, u r the epitome of a phenomenal person…random I know but I just wanted to let u know! MUAH!
On to other things, its just sinking in that I am going to be a bridesmaid (Maid of Honour for that matter) for the very first time next year…I am so blessed to be part of your wedding, Miss E!!!!!

    May 26, 2007 at 6:45 pm

    Genevieve Nnaji is one of the most beautiful women of all times in my book. I seriously think that she can step to Hallie Berry and Jessica White in the beauty department. I remeber when I saw her in her first movie(boat and sailor) and she was just a twig of a girl.

    I’m so happy that she has made it in the Naija movie industry where chocalte girls are hard to come by.

    Thanks for that photo Bella

    I am so loving Genny’s outfit, that chick is stunning and her Chocolate skin is to die for… Maybe naija women would see her and realize you don’t have to be “lightskinned” courtsey of Tura and Demovate before you are deemed beautiful.

    Glad you took down the whole comment section on Funmi Iyanda, some of those comments were just pure vicious. I almost started shedding tears for the poor chick…quite stunned at how mean people could be atimes. I’m definately Pro censorship on this blog…..Some s##t are better left unseen.

    Kpakpando what if i may ask is a razzoid? D’Banj is cool … if u ask me. His language comes wiih the game … you know … mus – ic.

    Genevieve so far has shown likewise that dark is beautiful not leaving out Nike Oshinowo. Classy chick she is, that is Genevieve.
