Who Run the World? Girls! Waje & Nse Ikpe Etim grace the cover of Vanguard Allure

A few days ago, Vanguard Allure published their weekly issue and this time, two of Nigeria’s brightest stars graced the cover. Nollywood actress Nse Ikpe Etim and musician Waje. These two ladies have worked hard to get to where they are and in the Allure interview, they share the stories of how they got to the top. Nse talks about how producer Emem Isong challenged her and encouraged her to build confidence in her acting talent. Waje talked about her icons and how she discovered her voice.

We are really glad to see these two ladies in the spotlight!

      • THE AMAKA May 28, 2011 at 2:15 am

  • TAMA May 26, 2011 at 9:23 am

    i love the dress

  • This gurl May 26, 2011 at 9:23 am

    gorgeous ladies…

  • Tiki May 26, 2011 at 9:48 am

    A bust…make-up and hair is such a turn-off, and who had the ‘brilliant’ idea to have them wear the same dress on the cover, and shirts and nothing-but on the inside? Waje’s shirt at least could pass for a mini-dress, but Nse…? I’m sorry, this is a total no-no for me.

  • dewowo May 26, 2011 at 9:57 am

    Waje lookin trimmed & beautiful!

  • mii May 26, 2011 at 9:59 am

    love the pink shirt!

  • Naj May 26, 2011 at 10:26 am

    Oh Waje, how much I……*cough cough. (Shakes Head) Yeah looking good lades. 😉


  • Tiki May 26, 2011 at 10:29 am

    BTW, I think the title is supposed to read ‘Who Runs’….

    • Tee May 26, 2011 at 11:45 am

      I don’t think so…I believe Bella is referencing Beyonce’s song Run the World (Girls)…and the lyrics say…Who run the world? Girls

    • NakedSha May 26, 2011 at 12:17 pm

      ‘Girls Run The World’
      ‘Who Run The World’, therefore, is correct.

      • saddy May 26, 2011 at 3:10 pm

        hey!.. “girls “is plural.. “who” is singular so it’s “who runs the world”… get it?.. lol

  • twinkle May 26, 2011 at 10:46 am

    make up hmmmmmm i dont really like

  • bobbydox May 26, 2011 at 10:55 am

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmm wont say more……but this is no good magazine shoot cover for any celebrity haba who took this shots and then ladies themselves dont they have any kind of picture skills for this is a flop

  • Osei May 26, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    Not really…it’s not yummy…next!

  • Chipii May 26, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    Wetin be dis abeg!? Mschew! The cover is ugly and Waje was NOT styled properly. In general she needs to get her “A” game on when it comes to fashion. Please, who saw her at the MI2 UK Launch when she was performing “One Naira”. She no just dey try jor!

    • jd May 28, 2011 at 3:19 am

      she was only like that because she had come straight from the airport!! she didnt av tym 2 change

  • THE AMAKA May 26, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    Too much makeup! And they both look pretty stiff.

  • Tyna May 26, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    thy ar pretty n gorgeous

  • BlessedAssurance May 26, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    Why are their mouths just open? NotRight.net

  • Deiz May 26, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    I just love Nse she’s a very good actress and she interprets her role so well. go gurl.

  • partyrider May 26, 2011 at 5:33 pm

    too much make-up..it didnt do justice to their beauty..
    and the cover is dull.with the black background and black dresses..some colour would have made it more attractive
    still love both of them..

  • Ijeoma May 26, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    In a country where the rights of women are constantly being trampled on both in the traditional courts and legal courts, it seems almost ridiculous to say that girls ran this world. I am sorry but women posing on the cover of magazines are not illustrative of running this world.

  • AbbyBee May 26, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    Sack the stylist

  • amethyst May 26, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    awww i love Nse didnt know that was her name

  • Oloju Come and Do May 26, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    Blush, you have to do better on the makeup front o. The makeup didn’t do nada for them, very ashy looking….

  • libra May 26, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    waje is perfect and i prefer nse natural.

  • Rixon May 27, 2011 at 1:44 am

    Sub par photography…

  • preetie me May 27, 2011 at 10:02 am

    wow! eveytin about this cover picture is wrong..did they shoot this with a Nokia phone? smh! as for the makeup” dont get me started on that…d pose’ NO”NO….and NO’ they dont have to wear same dress.

  • honeybee May 27, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    The makeup artist no do well @ all. Nude lipstick does not suit everybody,It makes Nse’s lips look bigger. Makeup artists should beautify clients according to their features and facial structure and not just follow fashion trends. That’s why Banke Meshida always stands out.

  • fizi fizi May 27, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    why are both gals open mouthed? u wan catch mosquito???? your cover dresses looks good but not supposed to be identical cos u gals av diff body structures..i fink its pointless

  • Phunke May 27, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    I love Waje’s voice and I think Nse’s a brilliant actress but I’m sorry to say this cover shot didn’t do them justice at all.They look uncomfortable,makeup looks weird.I don’t like it.

  • Ivory August 11, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    Please y’all,is this supposed to be cooment column or HATE column? You guys are full of negative energies. Absolutely bad for y’all. Good or bad,it’s their business.
