Nollywood Actress Chika Ike opens “Fancy Nancy” Store in Abuja – Mercy Johnson, Jim Iyke, Mike Ezuruonye, Goldie & More Attend



Nollywood actress Chika Ike amplified her brand earlier this year when she released the second edition of her annual photo calendar.
This time, Chika is veering into the entrepreneurial sphere! She officially launched her accessories store “Fancy Nancy” in Abuja on the 24th of September 2011.

As we have seen with recent celebrity events, the sense of camaraderie among Nigerian celebrities is at an all-time high! Various celebrities flew over to Abuja to support Chika on her big day. Mercy Johnson, Mike Ezuruonye, Goldie, AY & Mabel Makun, Eniola Badmus, Queen Nwokoye, Emeka Ike, Jim Iyke and many more stars attended the event.

BN was on the scene to bring you all the scoop! Here are some tidbits from the event –
* Mercy Johnson attended with her husband, Prince Odi. She looked gorgeous! Basically had the newlywed glow.
* AY and his wife, Mabel were there as well. Really cute couple!
* The celebrant, Chika Ike changed outfits a couple of times and “loaded up” on the accessories.
Fun day!

Check out photos from the event.

    I see shop/store openings and such-like are becoming pretty extravagant do’s now… all I’m saying is, if I’m laying out the dosh for all that red-carpet hype, each and every one of my guests had BETTER pick something to buy before leaving…

    No shade honestly but I don’t get people saying Mercy Johnson looks nice! She looks a HAM! Lace front looks tacky and the make up looks like that of someone who’s just started dabbling in the art. It gets a FAIL from me! Congrats to Chika though

    • Ready

      September 28, 2011 at 3:05 pm

      Ooohhh…at the risk of being called a hater or a nitpicker, I agree..many of them look a hot mess. Chika Ike always looks ‘colorful’, Mercy’s weave is sad as is Goldie’s lion mane, Halima Mohammed is just…
      Plus, it’s a store opening…one branch. Is that a canopy I see? And change of outfits too! Really?! I wonder if Dangote did this when he got listed on the New York Stock Exchange. As for those who flew out, I really just think it’s for publicity…fat Jim Iyke, fat Emeka Ike, etc. I’ma stop now.

    • Peperempeb

      September 28, 2011 at 5:05 pm

      Hahahahahahaha….Ready where have you been, you’re spot on as usual! This just seems so OTT for a shop launch and everyone looks strangely obese.

    I wish her the best…….have always liked her.
    Is Aunty mercy pregnant? #just asking..

  20. Natoday?

    September 28, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    Mercy glows and looks refreshed!
    @elenu. so all u saw was a married woman’s breast? no no no pls stop!

  21. chinny

    September 28, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    Good luck to her! I wish her the best. Nice to see a lot of people came out to support. ‘dyn’ – good point: BN please provide the address to the store.
    One last point, I feel like she could have done better with the models, they made the accessories look a bit tacky (with the hats/afro etc). i wish they were better dressed/styled, that would have definitely highlighted the beauty of the pieces:)

    This is just the stuff you see and your heart skips a beat. Razzzzz when will you leave Nollywood alone. Some Nollywood stars take them 2 steps up and these ones pull them 15 steps behind.

    • Ada

      September 29, 2011 at 4:40 am

      Lmao @ 15 steps behind! true tho! Whole thing oozes TACKINESS!!!
      And na wa for folks still saying Mercy looks hot! With the weird makeup and hair?? I’m curious to see how yall look when u leave ur house!

  34. dorothy

    September 28, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    it dint look like a wel organised event to me…[email protected]: dats wat i tot too wen i read about d change of outfits…really.! changin outfits just to come n sit under a canopy n sweat. A hall wud hav bin more appropriate.
    goldie just has an outta control forest sittin on her head n it needs urgent attention

  35. ty

    September 28, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    how can u peeps say mercy johnson is looking good? wats on her head?…. very terrible. Her sense of fashion is razz jo abeg. i cant see any goodlooking quest. sorry to say

  45. Truth be told

    September 28, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    Good for her but i think it was generally an overkill. Too tacky in some places and those models? Like they were modelling her clothes. But i’ll agree mercy looked really nice. I almost called her beautiful..maybe its that smile

  46. yeni

  64. cool cat

    September 30, 2011 at 2:14 am

    Why r u pple asking for address to the store? Does it belong to BN? If a business owner is stupid enough to go this length in opening an accessories store(average price = 5k), and did not think it highly important to communicate the address of the store, then they probably have nothing to sell and only want you to knw they’ve opened a store!

    Someone pls tell mercy johnson that lace wigs are sooo 3 years ago, and if u must, it has to be custom made and not the regular ill-fitting size.

    Methinks there’s 2 classes of actresses: d chacha group(genevieve, rita, monalisa, ini, nse, uche J(comme ci comme ca) and the razz group(as above). Lmao

  65. cynthia

    September 30, 2011 at 1:35 pm
