    @ Iya2:

    Burlesque is a kind of humorous entertainment which involves striptease, huge exageration and some bit of parody.

    Mango are trying to sell clothes in Nigeria, no? Why are there zero black/nigerian looking models in all their promo pictures and posters ( I have seen most of them). Bella as media partner to Mango, maybe you can bring up this point.

    If you want Naija money, use Naija models..invest in our country oh!

    @ peperempe, SHUT UP!!! They owe you nothing. If you don’t like their models, don’t buy their clothes then. Scarlett Johanssen is the face of mango as was penelope and her sister. i think she has enough power tp appeal to different groups of women.

    for the people in Lagos that want to get some sexy underwear for their men, La Pooza seems like the event to be at. LOL

    i think peperempe is entitled to invite people doing business in Nigeria to invest in Nigerian labour
