Nadia Buari is officially the Face of Devon & A New ‘Miss Delta Beauty’ emerges



For some months, rumours have been swirling but now it has been confirmed that actress Nadia Buari is the Face of Devon, a new line of soaps and beauty products produced by Orange Drugs. On Saturday 1st of May 2010, Orange Drugs held a dual celebration event. The event was both the official presentation and announcement of Nadia as the Face of Devon and the finale of the Miss Delta Beauty Pageant.
It is great to see our African stars getting product endorsement deals and corporate sponsorship. What is even more exciting is that Devon is an original Nigerian owned and produced brand and Nadia is a Ghanaian star, great to see the Pan African collaboration. Congrats to Nadia.
Just as Nadia star was shining brighter, a new ‘beauty queen’ was emerging.
We are not usually fans of the hundreds of beauty pageants that have cropped up in Nigeria. However, we liked this mainly because we saw girls with curvier figures as part of the pageant. Also, the traditional wear and evening wear that the girls rocked were actually quite cute so points for that!
The winner of the pageant was Sandra Uche Okagbue, she wins a 2.5 million naira cash prize and a brand new BMW. In addition, she will represent the Delta brand for the next 12 months. Lucky girl.
Check out photos from the event below.

    Nadia needs to take that hair and flush it down the toilet. By that I mean get a plunger and make sure that thing goes down the drain before you leave the bathroom. She is a HOT MESS is both pictures.

    Katie H. looks Absolutely Gorgeous!

    Genevieve looks simple and nice, Ebube looks good,and it looks like Uche Ogbodo is cutting down on the bleaching, Good on her!

    Congrats to the new Queen!

    please leave Ebube, she’s got lovely legs ,if she wants to flaunt them then let
    her , how come no ones commenting on Davina, i mean whats her outfit really?
    My girl Genny shld have definitely gone with a darker shade of jeans ,
    she looks aight though . Kate Henshaw nailed it with her outfit.

    Davina and Muma Gee: abeg pls, what were you thinking when you stepped out of your room (not to mention your house) looking like that??? I’m quite sure the IV didn’t read ‘Masquerade ball’

    Nadia, I’m sure you could afford to wear a neater hair piece than what you have on. If you couldn’t, there’s always natual hair

    Genevieve, this is the first time in a while I’ve actually seen her not scowling, it seems the Kokomaster is working his magic well

    the ‘face of sleek’ babe is on point!
    kate henshaw also looks gorge

    I don’t know why I’m just not a fan of Genevieve :S
    She looks aight tho.

    I think Nadia is such a local girl.

    Face of Sleek looks great.

    Looove Kate Henshaw’s Hair 🙂

    Hey guys, give Nadia a break, whats all that bad bele for? i wonder why the castigation because her appearance is way better than Genevieve’s that pple are gloating over! Pls dnt allow pesonal interest becloud your judgments. Genevieve should hv one something different for a star like her. you can be classy and still simple, i mean she even looks better on set, i am shocked by her face do.

    Whats with the jacket? I don’t like it.

    I am not a celeb but i wont wear that dress.

    Kate Henshaw is simply ever georgeous she is at home with what it means to be a star.

    Ebube looks good.

    Genevieve looks simple yet elegant. Nadia, she needs to lose some weight!! Her hair also looks to scragly. Davina and Muma Gee…hmmm, I’ll reserve my comment.

  20. dabusta

    May 7, 2010 at 9:59 am

    damn! people just love judging others …….and who made anyone fashion police. its all abt preference jooo.Gene looks simple and sophisticated and who says you are not allowed to look simple ever! becos u are a star……love love Kate’s dress and she was presenting duh….I think people who always criticise only see their own imperfections in others…abeg free dem joo

    May 7, 2010 at 11:40 am

    Abeg u people should leave Nadia, she’s very pretty n yeah it got her boyfriend’s(mike essien)
    attention, if she n he r fine with it, i don’t see wat ur business is…when did it become a crime to have full body again, she’s beautiful n gaining success there’s definitely more to her than her body so people try rest!!! is she bigge than half the africn women u kno…that said Nadia i agree with who said the black outfit didn’t really work well…

    Then Muma gee n Davina, it pays to pay a stylist…

    Davina looks like a mad woman who is suddenly xcited n gained compusure seeing camera. Ebube, same dress style everyday(wear wot suits u huh?) but it gets boring. she equally looks great in other outfits so y stick to ur guns stylewise? Dis nadia’s hair sha???? Genevieve looks girlish n ok.

    [email protected] the comments.Nadia!The always say that you can never go wrong
    in black, but unfortunately in your case you look over-fed and the black dress
    not so flattering. Please do something about your hair ASAP. Chai,stylist
    dey strike , especially when you are the ” face” of a beauty product
    Gen, you look fabulous for a get to together but not for a formal event like this.
    kate!kate!kate! You always look incredibly put together in any red c
    arpet event. Muma Gee, I’m so reserving my The best dressed of the
    event goes to face of sleek Nigeria.

    Genevieve is a style Icon:confirmed, Kate looks dazzling, that scare crowl Davina needs to find a circus she could attend in that outfit, my goodness what was she thinking? hiss.

    Muma gee, you are no india star so please dress your age.

    Nadia is a beautiful girl. She has an amazing career and a “to die for” fiance. Iam sorry she does not have the anoresic look and therefore should not be considered beautiful. It is comments like the ones read here that sends young women to early graves because the society thinks they should look like bean poles. while a healthy life style is ideal and should be encouraged, Nadia is far from what you would call obese

    i’m so happy for u… u deserve it.

    Kate looks stunningly gorgeous. I think Nadia thinks she’s bey or smth.
    Her hair looks awful. She just needs to tone up her body. It would have been
    perfect if Genny wore a dark blue pant.

    May 16, 2010 at 11:33 am

    nadia and that fat flabby body please hit the gym. no be by fine

    davina join the ibabhonalimwin masquerade troupe and even their gods will reject you

    What is that on genevieve’s feet?she wears cheap looking slippers and sandals most times i see her pictures!


    May 23, 2010 at 11:00 am

    Nadia should stick to dark hair, it suits her better.
    but not surprising at all…we ALL know the type of girls that always get chosen for any type of soap endorsement. whatever…

    the babes look so pretty!!! IMO REPRESENT!!! 😀 and congrats to Miss Lagos.
    loving Genny’s top and hair, but the shoes could be better.
    Kate Henshaw…LOVELY! loving the hair, everything. and where has she been for the last two years in nollywood as well? miss her acting, a lot.

    as for the guests: Mokida Moka, beautiful.
    Davina and Essence…wtf?!

    my favorites….
    Abuja, Anambra(orange dress is hot), Imo(love the colors of the traditional outfit, bright and colorful), Cross River, Edo(stunning), and Lagos.


    May 23, 2010 at 11:09 am

    @oga wife, not everyone has to wear a dress to EVERY red carpet event. even though she wore jeans its still levels up from casual. she looks good. i can see if she wore just a graphic tee and jeans, thats another story.

    and im not saying nadia is fat or what not, but the dress is not flattering on her body. she should have gotten a better dress, and better weave.

    on uche, ebube, and muma gee.
    muma gee, PLEASE dress with class.
    ebube, the dress is cute, but try a long dress next time. give us something new. 🙂
    uche…looks really pretty, i hope she has calmed down with the bleaching.


    May 23, 2010 at 10:56 pm

    this also reminds me of MBGN. did it already take place? Miss Universe is right around the corner…I’m really anticipating it. 🙂
