  16. nwando

    June 30, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    not understanding why isn’t nominated at least twice…

    • Lola

      June 30, 2011 at 10:43 pm

      Because they are not as popular as they think they are and its obvious its the 4aces girls that are posting these comments asking why they were not nominated. LMAO!

    • Sacharine

      July 4, 2011 at 5:51 am

      hater alert. yes the 4aces are not ast popular as a lot of these nigerian blogs which focus a lot on naija gossip and social propaganda but at least i do enjoy their blog as it is funny, fashionable and actually very entertaining. They do have fans in case you do not know, so keep believing what you want about them.And to accuse them of making comments on bella naija, i am shaking my head. please do your research and verify before opening your mouth.

    • Bukky

      July 1, 2011 at 1:33 pm

      I think 4aces has mostly African American readers and so their reader may not have known about it

  17. julliet morgan

    June 30, 2011 at 5:18 pm

    i think linda ikji should have been in the category of blog of the year and i will vote for her to win all the other other ones she has been nominated for she is good at what she does

  45. Kecy Ansoike.

    July 1, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    Vote for “Edithsmiles” for category 4 and 21. Its your average literal blog. Drives you through those bad days, while sewing the ripped heart, and taking back lessons out of darned memories. Its an honour to be nominated. It makes me happy. Happiness is pure bliss, feels good, feels tranquil,nothing matters,everything will be okay in your head, smells sweet,sounds exciting,looks peaceful yet fun. happiness looks vibrant but soothing. happiness is warm but not hot. Happiness is alluring and indulgent. happiness is like being starved forever and finally eating. Happiness taste sweet. Happiness is everywhere yet overshadowed. Happiness isn’t just winning; but being opportuned to be counted worthy of an award. Thanks as you vistit the page and VOTE.

A must read,a must bookmark, and a must re-read if u want or need to understand how a human/woman can put it all into such divalicious perspective with chutzpah!
