BN Exclusive: Nollywood’s brightest & Ghana’s best Glo with pride in Johannesburg



Yesterday we featured photos of the Glo Ambassadors in Johannesburg gearing up for the filming of a Glo TV commercial. Today, we take you behind the scenes, backstage and on-set at the taping in Johannesburg.

To highlight each of the star’s personalities and individual style – they all styled themselves and the result was pretty fab! Ramsey Nouah in his suit, Uche Jombo in her Little Black Dress, Monalisa Chinda Dejo-Richards in her spanish inspired frilly dress complete with a rose in her wavy braided hair, Rita Dominic in her rockette inspired look, Jackie Appiah in her ankara dress with beaded embellishments, Nadia Buari in her bright pink dress topped off with a mass of curly blonde hair – and the list goes on. As you can see from the shots below, the stars got a chance to sing as well! Check out the photos below – Can’t help but get a ‘We are the World’ feel from these photos. We are actually looking forward to seeing the finished product!Glo Ambassadors Advert Jozi Bella Naija023Glo Ambassadors Advert Jozi Bella Naija047Glo Ambassadors Advert Jozi Bella Naija051Glo Ambassadors Advert Jozi Bella Naija052Glo Ambassadors Advert Jozi Bella Naija030Glo Ambassadors Advert Jozi Bella Naija038Glo Ambassadors Advert Jozi Bella Naija055Glo Ambassadors Advert Jozi Bella Naija043Glo Ambassadors Advert Jozi Bella Naija026Glo Ambassadors Advert Jozi Bella Naija061

    The fellas weren’t looking bad. As for the ladie, um, too much lace front and wig! There’s nothing wrong with LFs and wigs, but I am so sick and tired of seeing women rocking these looks as if it automatically makes them look better! If you’re gonna rock it, pleaseeeee, make sure it sits right and looks real!

    Uche Jombo, Uche Jombo, the woman is amazingly beautiful!!!!!!!!
    Jim Iyke and razzness go together like Bonnie and Clyde *sigh*…….. he cannot be helped.
    Van Vicker – Can I hear UBER HAWT…………
    I loved funke, uche, chioma, and jackie appiah. Funke looked so fresh and youthful and so did Jackie Appiah. Rita I love you, but you’re beginning to wear me out with your wannabe rockstar/punk chic look.
    Finally, RAMSEY Nouah and Mike Ezuwhatshisface, it’s absolutely gross to see you both share earphones….ewww…………….

    Ok Im loving the whole united feel but please someone needs to tell the Nija actresses to get their hair on point! I dont like seeing badly fixed lace wigs! Just stick to braids like Jackie who looks quite stunning and that fair nija lady at the beginning…and braids has a more Afro feel to it. Nevertheless cant wait to see the ad plus Im quite happy Genevieve, RMD and all other exhausted people are not there…they doesnt seem homely like these set of actors and actresses.

    i love the fact that they all seem really close…not hating each other

    look at what Genevieve is missing. Please hush. My opinion…..she should be here, shouldn’t she?

  12. soso

    August 28, 2009 at 4:44 am

    I am glad for them. The women’s hair…………….hmmmm!!

    @ Comment by Strit.
    I totally agree with you as per Genevieve, as she would be feeling big (as usual) and keeping distance which the ad don’t portary. As per RMD, he is got a bubbling personality but too old for this set of actors in their late 20’s and 30’s. Kate Henshaw Nuttall, would have blended in perfectly. Lastly, is glo in Ghana 2?

  16. Genny N

    August 28, 2009 at 9:52 am

    I have seen Kate in the Glo ad, but not on any pics here. Cheers!

  17. bo

    August 28, 2009 at 9:54 am

    Kate Henshaw is one of the Glo ambassadors, she was in SA with them –
    Yes, Glo is in Ghana
    ah who would you say that about Genevieve, she is just reserved…everyone cant have an outgoing personality

    Love all the pics and the lively mood in the house.Babes go ez on the lace wig puleeze!it should take over all other hairstyles.

  19. Nneka

    August 28, 2009 at 3:31 pm

    These pictures put a huge smile on my face! They are look so happy …….more than anything else I see a group of YOUNG, ENERGETIC people who totally enjoy their profession. That, in today’s world, is a rare gift.

    Infact I’m so pumped up right here; a great start to my day!
    Go Nolly/Gollywood!!

  20. Truth

    August 28, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    Nice one Bella. Let them rock their lace fronts without fear. I will not say any names but drop Omo Sexy or G. Naj inside that picture, and war would have erupted. I hear GLO is planning to shoot 5 international movies with these people. They are talking to some Hollywood moguls

  21. Truth

    August 28, 2009 at 8:22 pm

    That’s the spirit Nneka!

  22. why

    August 29, 2009 at 1:45 am

    Glo really spent money flying ALL of them to South Africa just to film an add. Isn’t more business savvy to film in Lagos or Accra?

    I guess Nigeria is too backward to have sophisticated technology for adverts….unfortunate (confirms artists doing vids in SA).

    I love seeing the actors though….they actually enjopy their jobs. Imagine a bunch of 9ja bankers? hehehe

    lol @ jim iyke comment. right on point…

  24. eny

    August 29, 2009 at 2:48 pm

    am so upset @ quite a few things (1) the lace wig issue….. infact am not gonna go there , lemme stop right hur! (2) apparently am from anoda planet as i only jst heard that van vicker is MARRIED! omg and it doesnt get any worse ……he also has KIDS, i feel so offended particularly at this like omg omg omg …. i thot i was gon marry him lol!

    besides those ISSUES, am genuinely happy for all of them …. this is a great move & hopefully the rumour about them working with the foreign industry is true ….. that’l make even happier.
    BTW…. is it jst me or is the dude with the hat et green scarf kinda hot? i think i’l have to marry him instead …… bite me haha …. God i beg thee for this 1 thing in my life ‘Give me a fine bf/husband’ ….thanks man!

    what is aglo about? just their style?

    i like jackie but they always use toooooo much make up on her face. why?? she looks pretty she doesn’t need all that make up. van vicker looks prety cute. i’m starting to dig the hair-cut. i didn’t like him bald. it was really ugly..sorry v.v..I love ramsey he is a good actor. and he is attractive!!! wow!! he doesn’t appear to be as arrogant as some of the actors–nadia buari is the best omg! she is gorgeous!!
    Omg and inibong wow she is a sweetheart! i love her personality!!! she is so real. even in her movies..she is just naturally talented compared to others. some of them always fake it.

    rita dominic is okay. i like her in some movie, but i dont get why she always chooses to play the roles of prostitution in most of her movies.

    where is tonto dikeh and mercy johnson??? or genevive nnaji??
