    ok.i have laughed that silly victory off. Now in ref. to the post. I am not all too familiar with Sasha songs but I know she rocks. She just has this tough skinned, driven,ambitious charisma that I love to see in ladies her. P & R does have some innocenty looking models. thay are cute though but most times i’m unmoved by their fashion statement…all too familiar. But as i always say I love an entrepreneural spirit anytime. That’s what makes them rock;that risk-taking character.

    I love it! Moves are really being made in Naija! I love that young people are pursuing their passion in a big way. Imagine how boring life would be if we still defined ourselves by the old standards were success was only defined by if you were a doctor, lawyer or engineer! Here’s to life outside the box!
    BTW Haute looks hot (pardon the pun), I am off to the website to order a subscription asap! Bella, my babe…I am so hooked on your blog, it’s not even funny!

    I’m guessing thwey included a dress code on the IV for the made event cos most of the guys in the pics are wearing blue jeans, colored shirt and black jackets. The mag is actually pretty good, not as Nigerian as it should be though, I guess they’ll catch up soon enough.

    Ikechukwu and that velvet blazer! I’ve seen him at too many events rocking that same blazer (i think he has black too). I’m sure there’s someone here that knows him, pls tell him to take it easy on the jackets 🙂

    I have to say this bout Made magazine..the launch was well organized but wat do u really think of the mag….i personally fink its a little cheesy and if its supposed to be like GQ then we want to see RMD on the cover witout his shirt…okay! maybe not…lol…but really its not playboy so i dont think a gal should be on the cover….What do you think?

    Sasha is marketed well. Way to go! More to her and Storm Records. Ikechukwu … you can’t blame a brother maybe it is one of his favourite blazers … you know what i’m saying! … lol! … nah! brother is cool. D’Banj … as usual … on fiyah!!! like Bella would say. Genny baby … nne. na u biko!!!

    As for MADE magazine it is a LETHAL combination – Onuorah Iyizoba and his associates; more to you guys!!! You are putting Naija on the map as young men. Giving Nigeria a good image in the International and national fashion scene. What else can i say but BElla omalicha, kedu ka i me?
