BN Bytes: Keeping Up With The Yobos – Adaeze’s 21st Birthday, Baby Joey’s 1st Birthday & Joseph Yobo on the pitch for Fenerbahçe



Renowned celebrity journalist Abiola Aloba of Maestro Media recently visited Turkey to celebrate with his friend, Joseph Yobo. Abiola was in Turkey for three major Yobo milestones. The celebration of Joey Yobo‘s first birthday, Adaeze Igwe-Yobo‘s 21st Birthday and Fenerbahçe’s league match which secured the club a spot in next year’s Champions League lineup.

It was a family affair as both Joseph and Adaeze’s closest family and friends made the trip down to Turkey. Guests present at the various festivities include Joseph’s brothers – Albert & Gideon Yobo, Adaeze’s mum – Abigail Fashanu, her sister Oby Igwe and BFFs model Sarah Ofili and rapper Munachi “Muna” Abii.

Check out some photos below and visit Maestro Media ( for the complete albums.
Wish the Yobos would get their own reality show a la Khloe and Lamar, we would be totally glued to our TV screens. They are an ubercute couple!

    Errr, ok so when did she start dating him and when did they get married, if she’s only just turned 21? Anyways, I suppose that’s if they followed the sequence of dating for year(s), getting married and then having a baby. Wish them all the best sha… oh and cute baby.

    All these yellow girls sef :/ hehe! They are so cute from ada to muna to sarah. I would like ada to lessen her make-up tho. Make it light sometimes because after a while ppl get used to that look.

    some of you don’t know the meaning of heavy make-up. there’s nothing heavy about Ada’s makeup. @Busola

    • A

      April 28, 2011 at 11:27 am

      Yeah,I initially thought so too but when you go back to look at it she really doesn’t have anything much on.I guess its just the prominent eyebrows that make it seem that way

  32. justme

    April 28, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    abeg who said yellow is not finer….abeg forget all this talk of black beauty yellow any day and time

    • Agnes

      April 29, 2011 at 12:37 am

      Yellow is not finer. Period. Does every white person look good? That is the ultimate yellow if you really want to take the skin color thing to its logical conclusion. And yes, Black is very beautiful, i.e., Jessica White, Naomi Campbell, Beverly Johnson.


      April 29, 2011 at 5:02 am

      I can’t believe Bella allowed this comment. black people, we need to stop this color thing! it has eaten deep into our minds! i thought only people in western countres and the caribbean had this idea of “yellow fever” but we need NOT catch on!
      FYI: even if a person is light skinned, pretty, and black, its STILL BLACK BEAUTY.
      even though I am yellow(before some accuse me of being jealous), its really bothers me as a black person to see people trying to divide the yellow vs black/chocolate.
      its embarrassing.

    April 28, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    She’s really 21?!?!?! a family @ 21? wow! .. props to her, e no easy .. happy for her .. cute family and munachi is so fyne!

    • obi-talk

      April 28, 2011 at 7:42 pm

      thats not a very nice thing to say. they were both ‘celebrities’ whn they married, a beauty queen and a footballer. surely this must be normal to you.

      also the guy is very fit, so she cud have married him for that too or he was just a cool guy. stop saying wat u dont know, some pple jus tire me on this blog…. sigh*

  41. jezz

    April 28, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    Did Adaeze hv to wear heels to d stadium? She looks good though, though I think Munachi is way finer, but they should chillax on d make-up thing abeg. Btw, what’s with Adaeze Igwe and her mum with footballers? Good for them, wish them all the best. And baby Joey is so cute!

  42. mzdiva

    April 28, 2011 at 4:59 pm

    She doesn’t look 21, she looks more matured maybe 25/26.

    • Teris

      April 28, 2011 at 5:22 pm

      maybe cos of the preg-weight. hope she can get rid of it soon esp’ly w the support of a sporty hubb. cute.

  43. honey

    April 28, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    very very very beautiful. muna, mum, hubby baby, wow. she looks senseous in her black dress. money is good. lovely family. muna is beautiful.

    April 28, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    Why are folks leaving hateful and false comments? yet you wonder why they are being deleted. what is overstated about the makeup? Eyeliner????? Please, the lady looks awesome and her makeup is anything but understated !

  45. Elpee

    April 28, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    WOW i’m still shocked she’s 21. I didn’t know people married so early these days.

    I guess when you find what you want and it feels right you go for it. I mean she has nothing to lack for.

    she’s looking good.

  46. obi-talk

    April 28, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    only nigerians think every light skin female is the best thing since sliced bread…come see inferiority complex o, I feel sorry for u females who think bleaching u skin will help you become more ‘attractive’ as if being attractive is all there is to life. Nothing against adaze and her friends but I’m just saying. 20 years from now, they won’t look the same, so whats all this noise. Besides who told you guys that light skin girls age well without anyway help?:) i LOVE my chocolate skin tone, and i wouldnt trade it for anything. btw what happened to azaze/munachis hair 0_0 *calls weave police*

    • isabelle

      February 1, 2012 at 3:12 pm

      that is inferiority talking. all my siblings are really light skinned and dark but as far as am concern we all are so very beautiful.and as long as my siblings aren’t bleaching they will surely age well.

    I have heard and read a lot about BN commentators,but I must say u guys r just degenerating rapidly. The envy and backbiting is getting too much’ yet u wonder y u r not blessed. Pls this couple r gorgeous,no heavy make ups and cheap weave. I am a realist, never really liked d girl, but can’t judge cos I never knew her but doesn’t stop her from being beautiful.leave best friends alone!they don’t care who Is prettier and those talking about weight, I challenge u, post ur pics! Haters!
