    Stella why now??? roll neck in Nigeria since when? the country is too hot for that.

      I guess it’s meant to go with the Jim Iyke “scarf-round-the-neck-even-though-it’s-blazing-hot” theme

      You ever noticed that most Nigerian men are short? I do not know why that is but all I know is that the average Nigerian man is a midget!

    It’s funny that some girls think it’s attractive to show their ‘camel toe’ to the whole world esp. on corporate outings; but then again, gone are the days when African women took great pride in the fact that they were about the most decent of all women on earth.

      i taya o, i could see the whole shape and crease …hmmn na wa o , and i was liking what i was seeing until i got to that part

    • mbabazi

      african women wore nothing and showed more than just camel toe at some point. get over it

    May 2, 2011 at 8:28 pm

    I thought so too : tbaby. Stella chose the wrong outfit. Her outfit is not suitable for that occasion neither is it suitable for Nigeria lovely weather.

      May 7, 2011 at 10:39 pm

      I thought the same too, glad you spoke my mind before i was about typing it

  15. Peperempe

    May 2, 2011 at 11:35 pm

    In Jim Iyke’s mind now he’s very fashion forward abi; gratuitous Louis Vuitton scarf , 2000&late geek glasses and all. NAHHH…he still looks as tacky as ever in that shiny number. Ene Maya is looking nice as usual. The event looks kinda random though..the guests seem like a random mix (mo gbo mo ya?)

    that Alex guy is not bad at all.. i saw him for the first time in the movie.ladies men and he was a nymphomaniac..he disgusted me sha but that did not take away from his fine self.. where has he been hiding all this while

    • deebubu

      May 4, 2011 at 12:49 pm

      however, dear sis, It’s called hypersexuality now, nymphomania was thought to be a female psychological disorder and satyriasis was thought to be a male psychological disorder. They no longer use those terms, but they have the same meaning behind them.

    @jim iyke: wetin be this? Oga abeg don’t let this repeat itself again. just when i was beginning to root for u.
    @stella damasus: beautiful queen please try and find more suitable clothing;u are too beautiful for this outfit.
    @MI:love u to pieces but abeg please try and get some help with outfitting for red carpet events.


    May 3, 2011 at 1:12 am

    lolol, Gosh, Nigerians too dey copy copy! even if it means something that is meant for another type of climate? OMG! what is wrong with Jim Iyke? you need a stylists….why on Earth would anyone wear a scarf in Nigeria’s average of 88-99 F degree heat? same with Stella. her look was simple, she could have easily found a dress that suits the weather.
    LMAO @ M.I
    The Agu’s are so cute. lovely couple. you can tell he is so proud of his wife. 🙂
    as for Lawani….seriously? a lot of misses sha.

    Dayo Adeneye (aka D1) is on point with a relaxed look. Clad in a well tailored/ fitted jacket, Hermes belt , subtle Louis Vuitton mocs. Thats an 8/10! Jim Iyke relax and take cues.This is 21st century. We expect better from u with all d exposure.

    HAHAHAHA. I fell off my chair laughing at Jim Iyke’s outfit. Oga Jim you fit do better na. Ibiere Agwu is very pretty and I like that she got her body back after having a baby. I like Ene Lawani’s look. I love Stella so I will keep my mouth shut about her outfit.
