Nigerian tabloid City People celebrated the 2nd edition of their Entertainment Awards – The City People Entertainment Awards 2010 on the 18th of July 2010. The first edition of the awards took place in Abeokuta, Ogun State last year and this year, the party moved to the Centre of Excellence – Lagos State.

Comedy legend Ali Baba was at the event as was AY Makun and female comedian extraordinaire Helen Paul. Finally, Nollywood’s biggest stars including Emeka Ike, Uche Jombo, Eucharia Anunobi, Desmond Elliot and numerous others also graced the event.

Big winners at the awards included Kefee, Jackie Appiah, Timaya, Naeto C, Idowu Phillip (Mama Rainbow), Uche Jombo, General Pype, Da Grin (His parents picked up his award on his behalf), Terry G and Desmond Elliot.
Below are red carpet photos from the event.

    Ok so far there’s really no EXTRA-NICELY dressed person here, so now that I’ve got the ushers out of my system….

    Best dressed: Jackie Appiah- Nice color for her complexion and I just think she is a pwwwwetty person 🙂
    AY and Mabel: Loving the flow.

    Worst: Rukky Sa…..

    Most creatively confusing: No competition here. Susan Peters. She’s a pretty chic though. Sure doesnt need a big black bow on her chest to get noticed.

    AY and Mabel Makun just look absolutely great! the rest of them 0%. okay jackie appiah looked nice as well. as for susan peters, zizi cardow did her strong thing with that ridiculous massive corsage top. they would have definitely looked better with standard iro and buba

    August 5, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    as for me, Jackie Appiah was the best!!!
    Uche Iwuji’s attire made her look shorter than she normally looks or maybe its her pose..
    Rukky Sanda always looks like she’s trying to hard…

    I like the way AY & his wife dressed…love the flow of it..

  28. Pipiiiihooray!

    August 5, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    DARLING CELEBRITIES…STOP WEARING SHORT CLOTHES IF YOU CANNOT SHAVE/ SCRUB/ OIL YOUR LEGS!! What is it biko? Im enjoying the post though and cannot wait for more comments. BDW this should have been called a brown carpet looks like the old rug that had to be thrashed in my room.

  33. Joohls

    August 6, 2010 at 7:33 am

    ghanian singer Becca looks like she’s going for choir practice at her 2-man local church.
    uche iwuji’s dress looks like something i made during my home econs practical eleven years ago and i didn’t exactly get an A
    rukky sanda…sigh…looks like she just came out of an A&E only the bandages are black
    waje that dress is just razz…hopefully you didn’t spend more that N300 on it.
    Mo’Cheddah’s dress is just sad. i mean, what is it exactly??
    lola alao- razzness personified. no further comment
    omawunmi’s designer must be a bit colour blind
    susan peters… hahahahahahahhahahahaahahahhaha. that thing on your chest is just highly unneccessary!
    anybody not mentioned here, looked good enough.
    phew! i know i’ll get some critics here but i think i’m just stating the obvious. that red carpet by the way is pretty much annoying. what nonsense????

  34. Joohls

    August 6, 2010 at 7:37 am

    Oops forgot Omoni Oboli… she might be mistaken for an usher at a Star lager beer event. what’s with the yellow and skyblue combo???

  35. Ogo

    August 6, 2010 at 7:41 am

    jackie is the only nicely and sanel dressed person there…..bella cant wait to see more pics!!!

  36. Bola

    August 6, 2010 at 7:45 am

    BN, why didn’t you put up Eucharia’s pic? I guess you’re being nice to her…I saw her pic at the event, talk about when bad things happen to good people…

    jACKIE Appiah- absolutely stunning!
    I love the Zizi Cardow skirt 🙂
    AS for the lace wigs, if you’ve got to wear it, make sure it doesn’t look like a weave
    I like how the ushers don’t look hungry

    BN, it’ll be nice to have a worst dressed & brest dressed list for this event 🙂

    Susan Peters needs to burn her top.

      September 28, 2010 at 1:01 am

      I concur

  38. Ms. Jayee

    August 6, 2010 at 8:08 am

    Ebube is the hottest. Her outfit did justice to her banging body and her shoes did it for me…but would have
    preffered a better hairstyle though…but she looked hawt!
    Rukky Sanda…u need help!!!!
    Jackie Appiah..please keep being beautiful.
    Kennt Saint Brown…u try!
    Mo’Cheddah…..really getting bored with this your look. Learn how to strike a pose
    And yeah…lovin’ the AY and Mabel combo.

  39. Rhoda Ebun

    August 6, 2010 at 8:33 am

    Seriously, people are mixing dressing for the red carpet and dressing for the club. When you are on the BIG side, short and tight is a NO..NO. Mo’cheddar is slim and can get away with anything….short, tight or even free.

  40. Tee

    August 6, 2010 at 8:48 am

    Ahn Ahn, What is this???They look wrong, only waje and KC presh’s wife made an effort to look ok(just ok, nothing fantastic sef). This is total razness. Susan peters must have thought it was a halloween awards, Banky W no try with his ‘Apoche’ blazer…

  41. Ohio

    August 6, 2010 at 8:52 am

    Some of these ladies would certainly have been better off wearing a pair of jeans and a t-shirt that these so called dresses.
    While some look like they are wearing black bandage(Ms Sanda…if you have bleached, do u have to tell us?Methinks its better we keep guessing). some fail to realise short isn’t for everyone(Ms Iwuji looks soooo uncomfortable)
    Ms Omoni must be on her way to the movies or something but a red carpet event and WTH was Ms Peters thinking???? Gollywood is definitely taking over for real..:(

  42. maky

    August 6, 2010 at 8:57 am

    haba rukky dat thin when u weaR NA WA OH ….ur hair is as if u just rolled out of bed …and the shoes reminds me of some shoes back in the 80………………u know what if i were a fashion police …i will fine u big time.

  43. Folake

    August 6, 2010 at 9:00 am

    ebube and uche uwiji looks fab..nice babies
    Rukky please wear what fits ur physique..susan ur natural and pretty
    Jackie apphia you look so pretty girl

  44. ij

    August 6, 2010 at 9:49 am

    waje kept it nice and simple, good girl!
    Susan peters , tricky one , nice skirt but could have gone with a simpler top
    or maybe that corset like thing covering her whole chest area could have
    been better placed perhaps on the shoulder area
    Ebube , nice figure,nice outfit well put together but that hair , not sure abt it
    omawunmi, not feeling the patterns on that outfit at all
    Banky W, enough already, no really , enough
    Mabel and AY, well done guys
    Jackie Appiah , nice outfit

    moreso these people should learn to smile

  45. Lovely

    August 6, 2010 at 11:07 am

    – ebube nwagbo, the dress is too tight, the shoes looks ill-fitting.
    her hair can pass… lol

    – becca, looks good, maybe the weather (naija) wasn’t being funny

    – mo’cheddah, i reserve my comments

    – \I likr lola alao’s dress and omawunmi’s hair

    – the ushers look great; different from the original

    we sholid start doing fashion police here too,maybe like that some people will not actually wear some funny things they wear out.
    @ Jackie Appiah pretty who knows what works for her body type,luv her dress.
    @Susan Peters the next time you want to do a zizi line choose something thats for you,this will do run way fashion.
    @Omawunmi babe step up nah,u don dey bore me with this same hair style and cloth style
    @Lola Alao Nice dress but the hair isnt working for me
    @Kenny – the dress doesnt suit her body type and whats with the hard face? loosen up
    @Ebube-wow!!! u re chick girlieeeeeee
    @Juliet – Simple is da word
    @Mo’chedda – is that a 10yr old dress u re wearing?it doesnt look like a mini dress to me.
    @Omoni Oboli -hmmmmmmmmmm
    @Ay – like the Mrs top but i tot and co is meant for owambe parties?
    @Waje – Cute and simple like our own Genny wld do
    @Rukky – Tacky!Tacky!! Tacky!!! looking cheap all the way!!!!!!!!!
    @Iwuji – not working for me looks like she just woke up with a serious hang over. And ladies please mini isnt meant for all of us,lets try and conceal those things that will be an eyesore (cellulite,stretch marks etc)
    @Becca – simply georgous
    @Ushers -Good selection of human beings (some ushers look like???????)
    @KC presh – like wifey preggy state it suits
    @banky – like someone said earlier please change ur style or better still do something new with ur dressing haba!!!!!

  47. Peperempe

    August 6, 2010 at 11:17 am

    Banky W no dey tire for this e look? Ah ah! The Ghanians are looking more elegant than Nigerians oh. What is happening to Naija? No more swag..SMH.

  48. RMG

    August 6, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    lmao!damn these comments’re funny,especially Joohls’.U actually spoke my mind.Generally,the outfits aren’t fantastic.I don’t understand why nigerians react negatively to constructive criticism.Most of them look badly dressed,what’s the issue of hating here?abeg!!!AY and wife-fantastic,Jackie-gorgeous,Ebube-nice,Uche-not for chunky things otherwise ok,Rukky Sanda,the mummy part???,Susan-hot mess,the others-so so.some look terribly cheap..

  49. Otaki

    August 6, 2010 at 12:57 pm

    Ruky ddnt look like d star actress in that outfit. see d shoes sef. what of the ill lookin dress.Chineke! what did Susan wear? bow and arrow?

  50. adenike

    August 6, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    lol at the comments;i trust my BN critics….
    Becca gorgeous?is there another Becca up there that i ain’t seeing?
    Gorgeous ushers too?guess they had another set of ushers that my pc isn’t showing me…but basically.City People events always lack class,unlike This Day events(posh and classy); so I’m not shocked at the red carpet though..but I’ll exercise patience till BN adds more pictures
    before i comment…lol


    August 6, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    @Ohio, they are not taking over anything…..
    @Pepereme, Jackie is the only one that looks like something, no need to go on a generalizing rampage. lol

    I don’t think Rukky is bleaching, she just probably has dark knees. a lot of people have that, no need to attack her.

    anyway, most of them look a mess.
    Jackie looks stunning? she is blah as well.
    thats my shower curtain.

  52. Ms. Jayee

    August 6, 2010 at 4:15 pm

    @Lovely: Ebube’s dress is not too tight and neither do her shoes look “ill fitting”!
    It’s just her hair that could have been better.


    August 6, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    AY and his wife …waoo i like their style so cute.

  54. KemiPen

    August 6, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    Please why isnt anyone talkin about kenny st brown’s footwear…its HORRIBLE!! must she always ‘spoil’ her outfits?

    Jackie Appiah looks amazing!!

    Ebube is always representing, she looks HAWT!!

    Rukky Sanda…always looks like she is trying to hard. I have never seen her look nice on the red carpet. This outfit is HIDEOUS!!

    Ok Ms peters…i understand you want to do the whole designer look but that top??? AWFUL!

    Banky W, i absolutely heart you but pls change the look, its predictable and has become BORING!!!

    Mo’Cheddah…not so bad, its young and flirty…look beyond the music, she’s still young so its allowed to be playful with her dressing.

    Sengemenge boys aka KC Presh…NO COMMENT!!!

  58. wealthy one

    August 7, 2010 at 3:35 am

    A lot of celebrities, think being naked makes them hot and nice, wish them good sense of dressing in thier career, Read comment of other people saying, they are disappointed, Lol i never hoped on them for dressing guide. what we see now is even married grown up women in Nigeria, who naked them selves in the name of dressing, is a pity. some look scary and horrendous.

  59. sugar boy kel'd

    August 7, 2010 at 5:44 am

Susan Peters: this is not runway competition…pls if u want to wear zizi cardow dress, pls wear somethin dat suits d occasion.. Ebube can get away wit short dresses but as for Uche u luk ok but pls consider ur thighs pls.. .

  61. a mon avis

    August 8, 2010 at 12:47 am

  64. Bolaji

    August 9, 2010 at 12:24 am

    What a big joke! The red carpet is an embarrasment to the organizers of the show.
    Look at the red carpet itself: Absolutely littered; dirty; unkept and wrinkled! Why can’t Africans (in this case Nigerians) do things the right way. We love copying Hollywood and the Western world but can we at least make the red carpet look nice so the artistes don’t trip and fall over?
    If we insist on copying the western world can we at least copy the organization and neatness also so we don’t keep making a fool of ourselves?!

    What in the hell is Susan Peters wearing?!
    That Ebube chic looks good, just wish she’s have worn tights as well as a couple of the ladies a s well.
    Jackie looks good as well.

    August 11, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Ebube, Ebube, Jeez! You’re the quintessence of the word..”PERFECTION”. Susan Peters, where the heck is your mask to complement your masqurade’s outfit, courtesy of Zizi Cardow? Omawumi and Rukky Sanda, please desist from wearing short outfits. Your legs especially the ankles are not atall flauntable.Uche Iwuji, are you aspiring to become a sumo wrestler? You surely look like one in that outfit. Becca, My baby you’re truly adorable. Presh of KCPresh fame, are you into metal welding now? Those goggles are too big for your unattractive face.

  70. Erteka

    August 11, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    EBUBE, EBUBE, My Baby-Love, We can’t seem to get over you. My colleague Philip has urged me to convey his warmest and best wishes. Adorable, Your looks inspire me to write you a love song. Philip, say’s henceforth, he’ll start collecting movies you’ve starred in. You have so captivated Philip’s emotions such that, he opines you’re now an integral part of him. If you’re ever opportuned to read this account, just know that someone out here named Philip, truly adores you.
