    To me, Ini Edo is not recognized enough for her comedic roles, I think she’s the best in those roles and not the aristo-pro roles she usually plays.

    Naijas and all this fake hair. It it too much. Even if you must add, abeg add in moderation. I came to Naija for the holidays and everywhere I turned, I was in the minority, i.e. only female without some kain fake hair on her head. Naija ladies, give it a rest, abeg.

    January 13, 2011 at 10:13 am

    the cover shoot was a big MISS for me.
    it looks like she can’t breath, and the makeup is not a good look.

    thats not to say i don’t like Ini Edo in general.


    January 13, 2011 at 11:53 am

    Nigerians are the loudest species on earth. Only, if you can take look at yourself in the mirror, or perhaps, take a look at your closet, I’m sure that the majority of these critics have nothing to show for themselves. It is absolutely true that empty barrels make the loudest noise.. Ini, nothing do you.. you are wonderfully made, and you look great..

    All the photos are great EXCEPT for the cover page, just why, less is more,she’s wearing a white on a white back drop and has disappeared into it.there’s something not right about the styling
