“Nigeria’s Must Watch TV”, Tinsel premieres Season III in Lagos



On Thursday 3rd of June 2010, Medici was the venue of the premiere event for the third season MNet’s highly-rated soap opera, Tinsel.

Since the launch of the show in September 2008, it has continually improved with stronger storylines and engaging characters. From the start of Season III, the show will air five days a week on MNet with an omnibus during the weekend.
Fans of the show have are hooked on current plot twists including the death of Ashionye Ugboh-Raccah’s character, Monica Ade-Williams ; the budding rivalry between Reginald and his ex-wife Amaka’s new ‘toyboy’ and of course, Brenda Mensah’s scheming.

The event was a relaxed and fun-filled affair with celebrities including Desmond Elliot, Dakore and Julius Agwu gracing the event.
Check out photos below and watch Tinsel on M-Net West Channel 102 at 7:30PM.

    Pretty pictures….expect Funlola…Sometimes i wanna shake Ugonna…for a fashion designer… you ought to know what goes with what…those shoes were wrong for that outfit…a peep toe would have been just fine.. Everytime you go on the red carpet.. something just looks wrong..

    You would think that pple who call themselves designers would know how to pair their clothes, shoes and accessories. Ewemade and Ugonna pls this is a no no and I am embarrased for both of you. I don’t intend to sound mean but ugonna sometimes I see ur pics and i want to feed you a burger. For a certain height u should be a certain weight. You always looking starved in ur pics

    this red carpet was just okay….everyone looks decent, for the most part.
    Yvonne Ekwere, NICE!
    now I’m only gonna comment on the people that look OFF.
    SpiceTV girl, what is wrong with you? THE GHETTO HAIR, GOTTA GO!
    InspirationFM girl….uhm the skirt looks to tight and the belt makes it look like you can’t breath even more.
    Ewemade…WRONG SHOES! I can see you were trying to be different and stylish, but it didn’t work.
    Ugonna, too much weave! less is more.

    Dakore, you look very beautiful! smooth, buttery chocolate skin.
    just slim down a bit, you looked TRES HOTT when you first started acting in Nollywood. I remember seeing you in ’04 or ’05 was it? slim, slender, nice skin and pretty teeth (although you still have those)

    I beg to disagree about Dakore, if she was fat I would call her out too but she’s very far from it..u can’t expect her to look the same? I think she looks great for a woman in her early 30’s. Don’t hate, appreciate!
