    • dlapikin June 20, 2011 at 5:36 pm

      I was about to say the exact same thing! When a woman transforms like that, it means she was reall miserable in her mnarriage wow! she looks great! looks like she shed some weight, her wardrobe is on point, the skin is flawless… what can I say?

    For the first time in a long time Monalisa looks good is what she’s wearing so hats off to her for that. The rest of the ladies look lovely though 🙂

  • THE AMAKA June 20, 2011 at 6:43 pm

  • Nma June 21, 2011 at 1:25 am

    Wow, Monalisa looks absolutely stunning!!! Never seen her look this good!

  • Toriola June 21, 2011 at 2:01 am

    monalisa never looked better…i am happy she left Dejo.

  • Ndidiamaka June 21, 2011 at 4:20 am

    truth be told MONA LISA CANNOT ACT, praise her beauty but please dont dare praise her acting. Name one memorable movie she has done – a classic movie

    Tell her the truth so she can improve. She is one ofthe worst actresses i know – even the way she speaks and deliver her lines is appalling.

    Stop sugarcoating ish – and just tell the damn truth.
    Bella if u like post if you dont then thats ya wahala. There are hundred other blogs out there who are not partial. Comment about MonalisA is not a rude comment – ITS A FACT

    • ruby June 21, 2011 at 8:24 am

      you are right about that..she is beautiful and i like her..but ehn she no sabi act to save her life

      • Jojolo June 21, 2011 at 4:00 pm

        You are correct, I love Mona L, but the girl needs acting lesson

    • Naija Sistah June 21, 2011 at 8:34 am

      Na wa o! You sound like someone with an obvious grouse against her! I wish you well! Gosh! Whats the tirade and emphasis for? na wa o! kai!

    • RMG June 21, 2011 at 10:00 am

      True talk. It’s not a rude comment at all…

    • Sassy June 21, 2011 at 1:18 pm

      I concur, her acting is terribly . . .

  • Miss PHC formerly Miss ATL June 21, 2011 at 8:44 am

    Monalisa looks gorgeous!

  • Ginika June 21, 2011 at 8:47 am

    Omo, see fight with Uche Jumbo oo?! She is trying jor, ah! I prefer her with long locks than with short her.

    Monalisa looks gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. The ladies have reved up their engines and have changed gears (quite impressive from a learner driver, If I must say to myself).

    • Ginika June 21, 2011 at 8:48 am

      No more tacky dresses and funky hairstyles like before, before.

  • fokasibe June 21, 2011 at 8:52 am


  • chuz June 21, 2011 at 8:55 am

    monalisa you look fab i come to the premier the cloud was big,what i saw i never in movie premier history in nigeria,who styled you?i want the stylist number she is the best,you looked amazing,@uche jumbo well done short dresses do look nice on you

  • moi June 21, 2011 at 9:17 am

    Ndidiamaka, i quite understand your point however i beg to disagree a bit… Monalisa may not be the best of the lost but she’s certainly not one of the worst… she nailed “Girls in The Hood” with Kate Henshaw and Danielle Allen……Emem Isong has most def done most of these actresses some realll good.

  • Luvlyn June 21, 2011 at 10:11 am

    I had 2 do a double take on d 1st pic… OMG. Monalisa!!! Thank God 4 d hair instead of dat brown-hot-mess she always had. Oh dat dress is breath-taking. And her figure is on fire. Well done Mona. As 4 lady jumbo… I wasn’t expecting anythin fab.. I knew it will b d usual mess. Always dressing local. Jeezz. Susan p’s dress is beautiful wifout dat shiny-stuff on d waist. Nse is a dime!! And who is Tana again???

  • Ms Fusspot June 21, 2011 at 11:05 am

    Monalisa looks stunning! I want whatever is in the bottled water in HER house!

    Uche, please leave the bubblegum pink prom dresses to the tweenies abeg

    Susan Peters looks like an extra on ‘Star Trek’…beam her up Scottie!

  • Enobong June 21, 2011 at 11:16 am

    Uche Jombo needs to hire a stylist, putting pieces together for events is just not working for her….

  • Spoky June 21, 2011 at 11:37 am

    You that is talking, who knows u. Angelina jolie can’t act as well but she owns movies so does monalisa. Dig!

  • Lue June 21, 2011 at 11:56 am

    mosttime i come to just read the comments………………..chai!!!! BN commenter can really make yu laugh ur – out. my lips are sealed for now o but Monalisa looks wonderful

  • speaking of which June 21, 2011 at 12:00 pm

    Ndidi Amaka, if acting is being good act delivering a line in a way that holds people spellbound from beginning to the end, then Monalisa is one of the best actress in the world.
    Watch KISS & TELL…. Abeg Monalisa is d BOMB. stop eating Beeeff.

  • carlos lima June 21, 2011 at 12:03 pm

    monalisa is the best and has done what is best for her and we should learn to adore and compliment her good job, She did a marvelous job and she is on top and kiss and tell remains the best premiere ever because is classic and noting to compare. You are the best MONA

  • kk amsterda June 21, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    well i agree with you carlos, she is the best and on top, i compliment her good job and her dressing is wild and wicked, i love it

  • king spain June 21, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    mona is a pretty woman and i just watch her the movie now on net and she is the best and should be given an award for it.

  • joe amsterdam June 21, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    she is the best! please try and do same in our area rivers state

  • Allegra June 21, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    Monalisa and Tana are fab but cannot say the same of Nse, Uche and Susan. Although when it comes to acting, Monalisa has nothing on the Nse or Uche.

  • Ndidiamaka June 21, 2011 at 1:58 pm

    Tana is the best looking – very casual and nice. Doesnt she have two kids with her husband. How did she maintain her weight. She is stunning. I like her.

  • Ndidiamaka June 21, 2011 at 1:59 pm

    Nse looks hollywood.

  • Ndidiamaka June 21, 2011 at 2:01 pm

    Uche tries and tries and tries and tries – yet stilll enogree – chei. I like her peserverance though. As for Ufuoma Ejenorbor (pictured on another blog) after her razz encounter with Lagos police – i see her in a different light – and she doesnt look as cute to me anymore. I always have flash back of that incident. Razz to the core

  • Ndidiamaka June 21, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    Susan is toning down with her calabar clownish make up and i like that – her dress is nice. Keep on toning down the make up cos you are naturally beautiful – and that ring on lip (though not seen here) is ghetto and needs to go too.

    bella u think you are smart abi, I have seeen ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the photos (many razz looking ones) on another blog – but i see you are choosing to post only the best on here cos you are afraid of the fire comments – Good choice of doing that though – cos i swear the other photos i saw of the others were somthing else

    • bufffooo June 22, 2011 at 2:38 pm

      i agree with you, sussan has one of the best dress here,soft make up too. u rocked well on the red carpet dear

  • Rick June 21, 2011 at 2:14 pm

    uche jumbo never irons any of her dresses to her outtings…like she chooks her hand in a BIG green blue red ghana must go and brings something out with a smile and off she goes to a premiere!!!!!

  • trendyy June 21, 2011 at 2:40 pm

    Word!!!she can’t act..neva watched any of her movies 2 d end..but d sista is fine…and finer nw cos of d weight loss;)

  • HRS OLUBUSOLA June 21, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    Monalisa, Tana, Nse, Uche (without d boobs spill), all look amazing, go girls!!!!!!

  • tits June 21, 2011 at 3:42 pm

  • Bulldog June 21, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    Kudos to Emem Isong and the Royal Arts Academy team for putting together such a classy event

    • Missy June 22, 2011 at 8:31 pm

      I’ll say! They always make an effort with the packaging of their events! They get A Plus for trying! GO girls Go!

  • Naija Sistah June 21, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    You think Monalisa’s dress is fine? You should have seen the back! It was backless! awesome! I hope someone got that pic of it!

  • jadesola June 21, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    Oh my God ! Uche jumbo should always fix her hair and never cut it again’ look hw pretty she is!

  • lu June 21, 2011 at 7:25 pm
