    I blame Tyra for all this “fierce” yarns, as if another word can’t be used. Anyways this girl’s profile na die, she looks really pretty

    SCANa copy??? Copyright laws you want Thisday to arrest Bella and that’s stealing from a magazine that didn’t take folk a minute to create. That’s why Nigerian entertainment businesses suffer. Ripping off and piracy, as much as I want to read the contents online thats stealing.

    Just go and buy the magazine instead of giving Bella jara work nah!

    Bella has a feature in the magazine! Don’t you get it! As in she wrote it. No one asked her to put the whole magazine up, she is being asked to put up HER write-up. I’m sure Thisday won’t mind her posting her write-up and if there are any doubts she can easily clear that up with them.

    Why is the magazine #5 in the UK and N2,500 here?!!! Thot mags are cheaper at home? I don’t classify it a Naija mag anyway.. too foreign. Go buy Genevive, TW or that men’s one called MODE.
