    Trayc Cohen – AH NO! Save that dress for the club not the red carpet, please! I wish ladies will learn how to distinguish what is appropriate for formal/semiformal event and what is appropriate for partying/club hopping. The two are NOT interchangeable. If you will not wear a formal gown to a club, why do you think it is appropriate to wear club clothes to a formal affair? #[email protected]

    LOL @ Thandi, she just couldn’t be asked! Loved TrayC Cohen on X-Factor but that left boob looks like it’s about to pop out…other than that i like her dress.
    Apart from Thandie…the UK celebs on hand are proper Z-list
    Couldn’t they get any of the UK based Nigerian footballers to attend?

    Am appalled they put Oprah not omo sexy as d main feature. Do Nigerians actually send Oprah?

    I am still baffled as to why an African- American (Oprah), was chosen to grace the cover of the inaugural issue of OK! NIGERIA…

    March 21, 2012 at 12:54 am

    Why should Thandie dress up for nonsense?

    how is Ovation in trouble when Bellanaija, LindaIkeji, LadunLaidi, Nigeriafilms, offer the same pictures at NO cost….. why would I pay for a magazine to see the exact same thing I can see on a blog….. hmmm mmm, ooo well.

    Just out of curiosity will this magazine be distributed and sold only in London? For a Nigerian magazine, i don’t think a launch event in Nigeria is too big of a deal that the country and its shortcomings can’t handle.

  22. Rogers

    Omotola looks uber fineeeeeeee. Congrats

    @naveah so true, Nigerians never knw how 2 dress appropriately. @christy lol was so thinking the same. but they did launch in Nigeria but it was the same day as arise so it kinda got shadowed.

    She’s cool with what she is wearing, she doesn’t have to spend millions on a dress just to please u. She’s a philanthropist so she’s saving so she give to the orphanage I guess.

  39. NaijaBabeLDN

    March 21, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    People please do your research…the official launch took place in Nigeria…a black tie affair…I was at the London launch and it was amazing…the quality of the magazine is something not seen in Nigeria….Ovation is just a publication for the Alajhi or Alajha with the deepest pocket to showcase their latest gele or the wedding of their daughter….the magazine had a double cover…Oprah was on one side only….the magazine is brilliant for those of us not living in Nigeria to keep upbreast withentertainment…has anybody read the magazine…because I was a quality read free from the usual contrived simple journalism I’ve noted amongst other Nigerian publications….oh and for those who care…there were footballers there…we all partied in one of the finest clubs in Mayfair for the afterparty…lol

    As the first and only OK franchise in Africa….just support the efforts yo highlight the amazing things about Nigeria and Nigerians…

    • partyrider

      March 21, 2012 at 2:29 pm

      can we drop the ‘after 4kids’ gist..its very stale. plus she one out of a million ladies that still look good after 4 kids and more..
      that been said,she looks good and seems she lost weight.

    • mimi

      March 21, 2012 at 8:24 pm

  41. lola

    March 21, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    Trazy cohen or what do u call your self, what were u thinking! to say the truth the gown would have been nice if it had her breasts covered up, oh well each to his own, Omotola shone and Tiwa didn’t do badly either

  42. Lanre

    Tiwa is sadly under-dressed. And were they not cold???
