    New edition is old as f-!! My dad looks younger than most of them, and he’s over 50. Bobby Brown needs to put that ugly face back in that BMW.

    Is he there with New Edition or Bell Biv Devoe? Are Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant flying in later or has the organizer falsely sold people on New Edition?

      Well said, I wonder when Nigerians would stop all this sentimental bullshit. So because Whitney killed herself he has to commit sucide, nonsense. The show is not for you if u aint a fan so please pocket all your negative comments and hates. He has moved on with his life so haters you can move on or continue hating while he moves on.

    Not a fan of Bobby Brown, but hey y all d hate words? He’s not responsible for Whitney’s death, neither is he responsible for the way Whitney’s life turned out. We are all responsible for the choices we make in life, influence or no influence! Spare the guy please!

      Get your facts right. New Edition along with other R&B groups from the 80s and 90s have been touring in the Us for weeks now. There is still a demand for these guys in the US. For them to extend the tour to Nigeria then there must be a demand for them here too.

    March 9, 2012 at 8:43 am

    whats up with all the negative comments? if ur not a fan so dont attend the show, the man is just doing his thing. bobby brown is not in any form responsible for whitney’s death, do ur research the woman was already a crackhead before she married bobby, she actually introduced him to crack n cocaine when he was doing just weed. But then i guess we all want to believe Whitney is the angel n bobby is the devil.. BB welcome to Naija o jare

    I’m really holding my cool here and adding all the restraint I could gather but I can’t help but say that people like Bobby should be institutionalized. He makes “sick” golden and mad “ethereal”. I hope nemesis catches up with this licensed fool when he least expects. For all of humankind would never forgive or forget the inhumane treatment you gave to a woman you never deserved, whom you held under your grasp thanks to your narcotic leaning. Chimney!

    @enclaved it was not weed that destroyed Whitney’s life and yes she is responsible for her life and death. however he beat the crap out of her which is not acceptable and no woman desearves that. But most importantly out respect he could at least stay away from the entertainment scene, her body is still fresh in the ground. As much as is not good to judge but i’m proud that naijas peeps can at least stand up for what is right instead of accepting this bs. u think Bobby can perform in America or uk??? who wud go???

    The bb babe can’t even wear a nice padded bra under the tank top…. See the way she is dressed as tho she landed in Somalia …. Hissss!! Even she got publicity with the death of whitney…. Luv u Whitney rip
    Ps. Which ever bad habit you have before meeting ur partner…. They should help u and encourage you NOT support you especially wen it is DEADLY!!! Jeezzz
    If it was ur relative now they wud have gone to pick bobby brown, wud have love to see new edition *singing …. I’m still in love with you

    some ppl should stop haling insults and judgement…i love both Whitney and bobby…they both got talent. life goes on, yoruba says ‘eni tio ku ni tie gbe’ (the dead gone and lonely u can only see and enjoy life while u r still breathing…forget the hate game.we can only beg God to forgive both bobby and Whitney…if bobby gives his life to Christ today, he surely will make heaven…welcome bad boy Bobby and the new edition…IF U MISS THAT CONCERT BECAUSE OF HATE…THEN U HAVE DONE URSELF IN…KUDOS TO THE ORGANISERS!!!

    Who’s next on the “has Been” band wagon to grace the lands of naija after New Edition? The Whispers, Shalarma (Oops! They’re already there), D’angelo, Toni!Tony!!Tone!!! – Place your bets quick.

    March 9, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    ignorant people. Someone actually said ‘I don’t know him with any song’. Wll take your ignorance elsewhere. Bobby was huge in the 80’s. I’m sure the venue will be packed. Can’t wait!!

  43. taiwo

    March 9, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    i totally agree with you that whitney is responsible for her life and the choices she made but bobby brown as a husband when she was doing the soft she was doing, why didnt he try to get her help and say we both get through this together , isnt it for better for worse. i hate bobby brown, i cant even stand him. i dont know wat he is really doing in nigeria but me i just think there is something more behinde this concert as someone already said, i didnt even kno he sings.

    Fair play to Bobby Brown he has to earn a living but to be honest he has passed his sell by date long time ago

    I don’t mean to hate, but I can’t get over the fact that Whitney was only just buried and he’s out doing his thing. I suspect he couldn’t do this concert in America else he’da gotten booed off the stage.

    • Marla123

      Sorry to tell you this tour has nothing to do with Whitney. Didn’t you hear, they were touring when Bobby found out about Whitney’s death. So he’s just doing what he was doing before, living HIS life, doing HIS thing. Just because his ex-wife overdosed doesn’t mean his life with his band and fiance is going to stop. And he’s coming out with a new album which he was working on prior to her death. He and Alicia (his fiance) are getting married in Hawaii next month while he’s over there performing with New Edition. Nearly all their concerts have been sold out so they’re doing well and plenty of people want to see Bobby Brown. I wish them all the luck in the world. People need to stop hating. Whitney had it all and messed it up. Period. We all need to learn from her mistakes. I loved her but she messed her life up. Period.

    Dunno when pple will stop being so stupid and childish. Whitney chose to live the way she did. During my tennage days I learnt a lot of vices but I hated gambling.most of my friends gambled and I never indulged. Nigerians learn to stop blaming pple for I die. I have always been a fan of new edition and Bobby right from the ‘candy girl’ days.they guy has his unique style. I have all his songs on my laptop and backed up on my external HD. Will remain a die hard fan till I RIP. It’s my preropagitve.
