    DISH Network??? Why not Comcast?

    P.S. The Africa Channel on Comcast needs to hop on such programs and events covered on BN

    One word: KUDOS!!!…2 every1 involved
    The pictures we’d seen in earlier posts did not do enough justice to the details of the embelishments on the outfits the ladies wore. Nice to see my girl Lanre, as always on point! Mai – Nigeria’s Ryan Seacrest…the hardest working man in fashion/event/brand promotion/artiste mgt…u name it, he does it
    Well done guys, Good 2 c u 2 doing ur thing! JBL…so talented 2

    nigerians dont know wot tv content, or entertainment is.that is why some of you find this clip interesting.this is such a bore. i had to keep is this a tv show or wot.please watch tv in america and understand wot interesting tv is

      My darling…first off, shows like these are commonly seen in the US…fashion tv and the style network among others very frequently show behind the scenes looks like these. What makes it entertaining is seeing how things come together to make the finished product…i.e the cover. If you are at all interested in media…you would probably find it interesting. Fashionistas in Lagos would no doubt like the fact that you get a small glimpse into these fashion designers unscripted lives.
      That being said…I could do without the shot of the hair person’s necklace and chest area…missed what question that was answering…i.e the relevancy but overall, beautifully shot. Rich content. Well done.
      I take God beg una…please stop typing as if you are texting. It looks horrible and reads terribly too…It takes just one more key to write what vs wot…Biko…my people…Text language should remain limited to cellphones.
