BN Bytes: Stephanie Okereke’s Surprising New Venture! “Stephanie” – An Online Magazine; Her Fragrance, Wedding & new movie “Dry”



In a few weeks, Nollywood actress, Stephanie Okereke will be unveiling a new venture. Following in the footsteps of actress Gwyneth Paltrow who runs lifestyle newsletter – GOOP and Jay Z who recently launched “Life + Times”, Stephanie will launch an online magazine named “Stephanie“. The web magazine is an expression of Stephanie Okereke’s style, cravings, projects, achievements, opinion and ideas to thousands of fans, home and abroad looking for a viable avenue to connect with her.

According to Stephanie Okereke, “We are building a community where everything you desire to know, everything you are curious about, everything in the works, everything that has been achieved is shared and celebrated…It’s a project I’m really excited about, I’m thoroughly looking forward to it as it will bring me closer to my fans, letting them into my world and sharing bit by bit info and gist on what’s happening in the world of showbiz. I wish for everyone who visits to leave and come back again refreshed, feeling more beautiful, more daring, and alive than before…I am working with an awesome team to produce witty, fun, right-in-your face, gutsy articles. Joy Isi Bewaji, my publicist, is a seasoned magazine editor and she will be bringing her expertise to the table. Yetunde Taiwo of ICY PR, based in Miami, is also an integral part of the project providing the kind of graphic interpretation the magazine should have.”

Along with the online magazine, Stephanie will also be launching her first fragrance and a new movie titled “Dry“. The movie is a thriller focused on Vesicovaginal Fistula (VVF). Finally, Stephanie is planning her wedding to her heartthrob, Linus Idahosa.

    • Tiki

      April 14, 2011 at 4:34 pm

      I think its coz she’s got knock-knees…otherwise she’da been a successful one i think…i like that she’s tall but with just the right amount of flesh – and she seems to be revamping her style…Go Stephanie, you rock!

    • Ibo omoge

      April 14, 2011 at 9:50 pm

      What “knock-knees”? In case u hadn’t noticed. Oluchi is knock kneed, so are tons of models that strut their stuff on the runway in NY.

    • honey koko

      April 14, 2011 at 5:21 pm

      @Rachel,she modelled a bit.She was 2nd runner up on MBGN,cant remember the year dat was..


    April 14, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    I,m all for this new passion in nollywood for entrepreneurship and branding, i am excited about the future, the way things are going China had better be scared.

    Go Steph. Well done. I have come to the conclusion that the people that come on BN to comment have among them some of the most bitter and caustic people ever. Gosh! Does anyone’s effort make you happy for them or the way that Nollywood is putting Nigeria and indeed Africa on the world map of movie making and celebrity life style. I bet if styless(yeah its my own word sue me) Angelina Jolie does it, some of you will be the first to gush and celebrate her. In the area of negativity towards one another, Nigerian woman take the cake. HABA!! Go Bella, keep showcasing these great people. They are worth it!

    Enuf said already abt the ‘style issue’ I think. Some of us are big fans/supporters of @Stephanie O. Personally I love her totally n think she is a great role model 2 d younger generation of artiste out der. Why don’t we all chill out till d mag is out n d perfume is in stores n then we all PURCHASE(emphasis on purchase) before we comment negatively or otherwise?. At least no one is bad mouthing the acting or producing skills,still unsure? then chk out thru d glass. Big ups @ S.O all d best in all your endeavours esp the wedding. *wink* Xoxo

    wow! stephanie is such an inspiration. you dont see her everywhere doing everything, she chooses her projects carefully – nice one. she is the most consistent celeb on facebook, always updating and sharing stuff and cracking us up, that just endeared me to her. i think online magazine is the new rave (since physical mags in nigeria is becoming such a bore), online seems flexible and easy to access, so its a good thing a celeb is thinking of that. thumbs up, stephanie! I love your drive, I love your passion, and I think ‘Dry’ is such a fine name for a movie- reminds me of ‘Salt’ heehee! well done babes, we love you. Maybe, really, Nigerian youths are the ones that will save this country!

    Bayelsa, Rivers state and NDDC well done. There is honour in getting contracts and making it work. It does not matter how you got the deals as long as you make it work.

    Her venture is exactly what i have also been planning to blog about after i get my expensive DLSR in June (its on lay away and it aint cheap). It will be about everything BUT CLOTHES FASHION – i am sick and tired of every african blog fashion fashion – fashion ko fashion ni – and the thing is its so saturated nothing seems unique anymore – ITS BORING!. There are other lifestyles aside from fashion – there is photography, painting, cooking, Interior Decor and amass more. See all these yeye ppl will start copying (what most of my africans know to do best instead of using their creative minds) and following suit and switch once they see it. Kudos Steph am with you sha. I plan on launching my online lifestyle blog (minus clothes fashion) soon.

    April 14, 2011 at 10:10 pm

    I’m excited she’s thinking beyond being a regular ‘Nigerian actress’ and is expanding on all fronts. Shame we think the best form of appreciation is pointless criticism…. It’s unhealthy, really.

    April 14, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    now those shoes r hot wondering why noone has mentioned it

  50. Mariella

    April 14, 2011 at 11:32 pm

    Kudos 2 everything she said, but as for perfume even Jessica Parker’s fragrance amongst others leave a lot 2 be desired imjussayin# Anyways lets give her a chance and see what she comes up with. I bet it won’t smell like all those highly opinionated perfumes from Kano.

    Oluchi Onweagab has got knock knees too but she is doing just fine. Point is a lot of people never got the chance and Stephanie is already way deep into acting and making money before this more grass root modelling began. Go Steph…you are doing good. Way to got, girl.

  77. vivi

    April 16, 2011 at 2:42 pm

    Bella’s finally learning that Nollywood rules so she’s reduced on the negative comments. Cool, drive the haters elsewhere. Steph is one of the strongest women I know, to have suffered a terrible accident and marriage and come out with head held high in a society like Nigeria no be beans. Well done girl. May God bless and keep you.
