Hi Everyone!!!
How’s it going?
So how was your weekend?! I think I overdid things this weekend ’cause I am absolutely exhausted. I went out too much, shopped too much….I basically overdid everything! but its all was fun.
I saw some of my friends that I haven’t seen in ages as well!
So what did you get up to?
Sorry I haven’t put up the Soundcity Photos yet, I cant seem to find good quality shots. Oh well, whenever I get them, I’ll put them up.
Its time for a Rundown.

The Apprentice Africa is still on.
I already recapped the ‘fired’ contestants from Episodes 1 – 4 HERE.
See below for the recently fired ‘apprentices’.

Week 5 – Akatu Ochai – Nigeria

Week 6 – Joyce Mbaya – Kenya

Week 7 – Bekeme Masade – Nigeria

Week 8 – Oscar Kamukama – Uganda

You can watch video recaps on the site – HERE

Handbag Designer, Onna Ehrlich is on the cover of this month’s True Love WA Magazine while Femi Oke covers Genevieve Mag. Make sure you pick up the mags from the newsstands or better still subscribe.

One of my fave actresses from Sister, Sister and The Game, Tia Mowry and her actor beau, Cory Hardrict tied the knot this weekend. Sister Sister was my fave show in my early teens while the Game is my current fave. Congrats to her! What do you think of her dress.

What’s New Mag is now bi-weekly. Watch out for the mag on the newsstands (or while you are stuck in the traffic).

Newly crowned, Miss MBGN Universe, Stephanie Oforka gave an interview to the Punch Newspaper this weekend. I think she has really good chances for Miss Universe.

P-Square’s Peter Okoye is going to be a daddy. His girlfriend, Lola Omotayo has confirmed she is pregnant. She was at the SMVAs with Peter and I thought her boobies looked rather preggers lol. Anyways, all the best to them! I pray that they have a healthy and cute baby.

Awww, Kanye West and his fiance, designer Alexis Phifer have officially broken up. That’s so sad! But I’m sure its good news for all the other wannabe Mrs Kanye Wests out there. – HERE

That’s it for today.
Have a great week.

    Am I the only one that can’t seem to understand why all these male artists are just popping out children everywhere, with every chick they date? It’s not even fashionable,it’s annoying. I hope that Psquare fellow has plans of marrying that chick and raising that kid in a proper home, unlike some of them like Tuface who’s becoming the most fertile guy in the business.

    Wow!! What a run down.
    Abeg dont call me old fashioned o but is Peter joining the ‘partner’ club of just borning pickin and not marrying?
    I didnt know naija had gotten that liberal. lol!!

    I’d love to watch the full episodes of the Apprentice o. Are they available anywhere online?

    Nekwa unu Onna, cover girl! Na you biko o. I wish she would comp me something 🙂

    I don’t care for Tia’s dress at all, but I’m sure she loved it since she picked it… I do love her bouquet though.

    Stephanie Oforka is a cute girl, but why does her picture look like someone did a drive by with pink blush and attacked her cheeks? Abegiii Silvabehd, make una organize make up artists to be doing these girls faces and teaching them how to properly select and apply cosmetics, before they go around looking like nmawu!

    Lola, more grease to your elbow, single motherhood isn’t an easy choice. I sha hope Peter steps up to the plate, though I’d be surprised seeing how young he is and sometimes acts.

    Kanye West breaking up with beard… well at least she got more exposure for her fashion line than her marriage to that football player ever could give her.

    Aww I want the new True Love and Genevieve magazines!! I hope it works out wuth Tia Mowry. I wonder if Kanye Wests break up had anything to do with his ego!lol….

    lol why is femi oke on genevieve AGAIN? the only thing nigerian about the babe is her name, unless she has repented lol.

    as for Lola, all that one na tori, hiss, if peter asked her to marry him today will she say no? abi she is a small girl that will be getting pregnant for someone she cannot comprehend marrying or being a father to her child? or maybe she was just looking for sperm donor but in that case why peter of psquare?

    Why isn’t Peter of p-square going to marry this Lola girl that is now pregnant and why is she accepting this? Chances are, if Lola gives this Peter all the benefits of marriage without demanding actual marriage from him then he is unlikely to ever marry her. I do not buy the argument that she does not want to get married. Thats just bs. Naija is a marrying culture and all this “new values” is not cool. If she is good enough to mix DNA with then she should be good enough to marry.

    Great rundown Bella! I hate to be redundant but I really couldn’t help but wonder if Tia was pregnant before I even got to the comment section and saw all the questions about it. Research is on!

    i don’t think Lola should have to marry anybody if she doesn’t want to, just cuz it’s a “marrying society”. You can love someone and being 32 feel like you want a baby by the one you love, but Peter is an artist. Marrying him is another kettle of fish. Please.

    @ Lola. LOL Yea, right! as if you won’t say yes with a quickness if he asked you to marry him.

    @ Tamara. Gorgeous dress for a preggy person. If she’s not pregnant then I think she should have picked something else.

    I’m not trying to rain on anyone’s parade, but that Lola O. is not fooling me with all tha talk of not wanting to get married. Yeah right.

    In her interview with Economium, Lola O. is very adamant about not feeling a need to get married. While I think that may be the case, I do sense that she would really really like to marry Peter…if he ever got around to asking, which I doubt will happen. Also, if she did not feel a need to get married, then why have a child especiallly with someone that has expressed that he is not ready to marry. Getting pregnant is not a typically not a way to keep a man. Bad idea.

    I honestly do not feel that Peter will ever marry her and why should he? I wouldn’t. Why buy a cow when the milk is free and comes with a take-away (i.e., a child). I can even understand the whole pregnancy thing if they had concrete marriage plans, but that is even a risk.

    Peter is young, paid, and has too many fine young girls throwing themselves at him. He has growing to do and wild oats to sow before he becomes the marrying type. Any person contemplating or wishing for marriage with him at this stage in his development is loco.

    This Lola is seriously wasting her time if she thinks that after Peter gets a little older and has finished sowing his oats that he will then marry her. He will go and find someone younger, slimmer, finer, and child free. That is what men generally do.

    Also, I have some concerns about Peter’s family and Lola’s perception that they are cool with her being pregnant and being with Peter. They may be smiling in her face, but I doubt that they are being sincere. I bet that they have visited every shrine in Igboland to ensure that their succesful and rich Igbo son does not marry this Yoruba girl. His family is fronting and will do what it takes to stop marriage.

    lol anon preach it o!
    peter may be a rockstar, his family isnt. and this lola girl, if they proposed to her tomorrow, all that her shakara will disappear like ice water on a hot day.

    getting pregnant for a young celebrity has to be the worst decision everrrrrrrrrr. if she wasnt looking for child support money then why?

    the whole affair is bananas ojare

  38. Lola

    April 25, 2008 at 10:22 am

    child support money in nigeria? lol.

    i don’t know o, me i’m just saying you can’t really help who you fall in love with but you can help who u marry. Me, as in I personally, i can see someone feeling like Lola does so it’s not so farfetched for me. okay so wrong decision in getting pregnant (maybe) but then should u now mess up your whole life because of that one mistake? as peter is just an artist in the now. what about 5,10 years down the line? is Lola going to then be the breadwinner or what? All those are big decisions that transcends “i’m pregnant”. Again, me, i don’t think just cuz i’m pregnant for someone and I love them then that means the best decision left for me is to marry that person. case in point, even if whitney had been preggers before marriage, marry bobby a good idea? probably not.

    @anon – so peter sings do me i do you and he’s a fine boy so I’d want to marry him? lol….okay. i’m not 14 oh, lol.

    Lola Omotayo reminds me of Lisa Raye-McCoy Misick – her compexion and eyes, that is. I wouldn’t say height ’cause i am not sure how tall Lola is. Although, Lisa is about 5 9″. The only difference in my opinion is that Lisa smiles a lot, her smiles are radiant.

    Whilst, Lola hardly smiles at all. I am saying this mainly from her pictures that i have seen.
