      Mariella, I recall seeing him in one of Bella’s articles. I believe it was the one about Mania mag launch.

    I see WOW is really stepping up their game, big ups! Can someone tell Tonto that less is more? She seems to be trying too hard and its coming off looking forced. Ease up girl. Great photography, KAO is on point as always.

    Sigh… Tonto is sooooo beautiful, so stunning!!!
    I only wish she would conduct herself with a bit more decorum and class…
    Her over the top “I don’t send” attitude only gives the haters something to hold against her…

    Tonto!!!! wow!!! will be checking d vendors for this magazine. She is beautiful!

  14. Luvlyn

    April 7, 2011 at 11:39 am

    Tonto is so gorgeous and her skin is like buttermilk. Love d cover dress althou it adds weight on her but d cover makeup was flawless. Dat second brown outfit is very tacky and ridiculous. Looks very unstylish and cheap.

  15. BubblyBliss

    April 7, 2011 at 11:51 am

    The brown outfit. Trying to channel the 70’s trends… pants not wide enough, heels not high enough. Wedges or block heels would have done the trick. Try again! On a lighter note, Tonto looks amazing and did she actually use her real hair for the shoot?! That’s a first, I’m impressed!

  16. OGE

    April 7, 2011 at 11:54 am

    wow!!! tonto is so gorgeous. keep ur head high gal! You are hot anytime anyday.

    The green outfit,did i see her breasts and her nipples?????.. no wait ! let me go and wash my face and come back! sigh!

      April 7, 2011 at 12:14 pm

      Thought I was seeing things myself…

    • jcsgrl

      April 7, 2011 at 2:18 pm

      Lol! I thought so too till I looked closely at the picture. The dress is from HON and is designed to have studded nipples.

    • babylawyer

      April 7, 2011 at 2:41 pm

      I for talk! Wish Ugonna had left the “nipple detail” out though, it made a perfectly gorgeous dress look a little thrashy; one might even consider the choice of the dress for Tonto as stereo-typing… Anyways!

    • babylawyer

      April 7, 2011 at 2:50 pm

      hold on o! does the dress have an underlay, or are we actually seeing all but her nipples?

  18. Neighbor

    April 7, 2011 at 12:04 pm

    She looks like an alien on the cover, theres something just not right. Slicked back hair doesn’t seem to suit her.

    • Miss Face

      April 8, 2011 at 8:25 pm

      Nah, its not the hair, its that thick slice of mouka foam on her left shoulder!

  19. gbeborun

    April 7, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    Wow she looks absolutely STUNNING

  20. Tola

    April 7, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    Are those her nipples?? As in, can I see stuffs that look like nipples in that green dress, am I correct?? Tonto…WTF?? 😮

  21. Straight4ward

    April 7, 2011 at 12:49 pm

    This girl needs to get her acts together and s-l-o-w things down!…she’s on a very faaaast lane and most people on that lane crash and burn big time.
    She looks nice but i really can’t get past her rough and wild lifestyle.. it kind of takes from all this…sorry!
    That said, I do wish her the best.

    • Mee

      April 9, 2011 at 2:00 am

      Just to add to what you said,I hope she realises soon that she need not show any flesh in her movies or act out sex scenes before she becomes mega big or famous,a word of advice to her cos I hope she doesn’t crash land soon and all she will be remembered for is her nudity in movies.maybe she needs to learn from Genevieve nnaji who need not act sex scenes or show flesh and still remains a top notch to be reckoned with.thumbs up to Genevieve!!!!

    April 7, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    I’m not feeling the brown outfit but this is the best I’ve seen her look in a long time. I guess we can thank Kelechi Amadi-Obi for his great photography skills on this one!

    tonto= vwry pretty without overdoing it BUT her acting is terrible!!!!!!!! In Black berry babes, i almost threw-up, her acting seems to have gotten worse over the years. She seriously needs to go for acting lessons or something ; she has the basic naija way of acting: OVER-ACTING!.

    • Obi

      April 7, 2011 at 9:17 pm

      My dear its not “basic naija” as you put it. Its over acting. PERIOD. Its the same all over the world. But hopefully over time she will improve. She’s very pretty and confident so she is quite sought after. Give her time, she may just be crude oil waiting to refined.

    April 8, 2011 at 2:43 am

    Please the styling is on point. I love all the concepts. What I want to know is why Tonto is standing like that in the second shot. The pose ruined an otherwise classic outfit.

  50. ReDress

    April 8, 2011 at 2:46 am

    hei! the second shot is what my people call mgbo’eke, but she is fine o. The green dress on her is red hot!

  51. FunnyPeople

    April 8, 2011 at 2:58 am

    You guys are so funny! I have this HoN green dress. It is a red/pink circular detail on the bust area not nipples… I wish she was in a different pose in the camel trouser combo – very old charlie’s angels… I love this silver thing. I want it. Where can I find it, BN? Her skin is something else.

    That dress looks absolutely gorgeous, the designer is a Dubai based talent and she actually takes online orders too.

    August 3, 2011 at 11:27 am

    she looks stunning..and the green dress is hawt..minus the red-petal thingies… i love the way it makes her look voluptuous… pple should just stop hating jor, she is a fine girl with a lovely complexion and which wild lifestyle are we talking about? abegi make we hear word… does she do drugs? or alcohol to the point of stupor… let’s stop being so critical, she is a young girl having a blast like most undergraduate girls in university… let her live her life when it’s time for her to settle down she will…
    she has never claimed to be Mother Theresa or Mary Slessor.. hypocrites like y’all


    September 22, 2011 at 4:47 pm

    the thing is love her or hate she’ll so diss you in the real world. shez got a very nasty attitude,period.
    unlike Halima Abubakar,shez so down to earth,and she sees all humans as me when i say,that is a TRUE STAR-HALIMA ABUBAKAR,love you to death.

    May 16, 2012 at 11:41 am

    Tonto is a pretty girl but she is all over the place for the wrong reasons, I think she can’t handle the money and the fame , I just hope that with time she will get a grip on her self, the truth is that she lacks depth. Her devil may care attitude will bring her down very soon if she is not careful. It is for her to find a balance and handle the fame monster with grace and maturity.

    I don’t watch her movies at all.

    She reminds me of Eucharia Anunobi a talented actress with fantastic diction but
