BN Exclusive: Who Will D’Banj Pick? Kokolets Dolled Up for HiMag’s 1st Anniversary Issue



Koko Mansion fever is raging all over the world right now. This week was an interesting week in the mansion – Minister of Information and Communication Prof. Dora Akunyili visited and the kokolets completed an interior design task. This week’s winners enjoyed a day with D’Banj at a private beach house. While some were still relishing their win – for others their minds were fixed on one thing – EVICTIONS! Chinwe, Elizabeth and Isi (the ‘mole’ who joined the house last week) were evicted this past weekend. Therefore there are only 4 Kokolets left in the house – Bolanle, Shona, Rita and Chidinma. Who will clinch the 5 million naira prize? Only time will tell. After the eviction, all the evictees enjoyed a thrilling night out at Nu-Grotto nightclub. They partied it up with D’banj, Don Jazzy, Ikechukwu and Sauce Kid. You trust Bella Naija to bring you the scoops first – so check out an exclusive first look at the photos from the Kokolets in-house photo shoot! The photos were shot by up and coming photographer Toni Tones. Congrats to HiMag on 1 Year of Success! Here is to many more.

    damn these are lovely pics.
    from when i watched this it looked like garbage. but the pics came out lovely.
    Chioma looks pretty but they should have gave her some heals, it would have made her look taller and her legs much longer, more professional.
    RITA!! she almost looks like a professional model. wow rita!
    i want rita or shona to win.
    most of the girls are gone anyway so HiMagazine is a little late for this. lol
    out of the final 4/5 (Isi?) i want Rita,Shona, and Bola to make it to the final 3.
    Chidinma is dull and boring and Isi is like “WTF?” lol
    Isi should have just stayed in Holland. lol
    I think this is going to be a new start for the ladies.

    see how rita n chidinma come fine o.
    LOL at the new babe who gt evicted FAST!


    August 4, 2009 at 10:04 pm

    wait, isi was evicted?
    she is the only new girl in the house.
    if she did, THANK THE LORD!!
    i couldnt stand that girl. she was a mess.
    if dbanj wanted to bring a girl he should have brought back chioma or bidemi because were way better than Isi. lol
    she should have stayed in Holland.

    The pics all look too air-brushed!!Dont want Rita to win but would love someone to see she has modelling potential and perhaps take a risk and sign her ..Shona’s pic came out best.

    PS: when I watched d show I thought the photographer’s “aggro” was too much..I think she put the fear of God in Rita, cos poor gal looks so scared in the picture.

    i dont think so’am think bout it..rita might be d ideal african woman, but lets not4get part of the whole aftermath is some1 to follow dbanj about as an ambassador..even on intl stuffz too..guess u havent seen RITA remix on so hilarious..she might be good but i dont think dbanj would want some1 dat cant express herself very very clearly in english..u cant be on TV and start speaking pidgin or beans english and call ur self an ideal ideal woman should represent in all areas and aspect..English is our main language, so at the end, it’ll be a disgrace4 dbanj see u all ard bella..nice 1..sup wit u?

    i think the stylists really tried for these girls, and the makeup woman. the photographer only captured what they created i suppose.
