    oh my , i guess everyone thought they had to dress like clowns for the comedy show, the ladies in red looked nice, i totally love Linda ikeji’s gown, i thought Dare art Alade looked half mad in his outfit or perhaps like a court joker, “shrug”

    • Gidi

      June 16, 2012 at 9:49 am

      Dare performed in that outfit,so i think it makes sense.

    I actually like Darey’s outfit. It’s different and retro.

    Linda’s dress is nice, however she looks like she’s going to work or to the office. She should have worn this dress to the Seminar she had this/last week and then she should have worn the jumpsuit she wore there to this event. Linda and Dan Foster in the same place? *coughs*

    I can’t help but notice Jay Jay’s bulge!

    No matter how Charles Ahize dresses he still has that “look.” His wife scrubbed up nicely.

  24. Bukki

    June 15, 2012 at 4:22 pm

    Nigerians sha! Ah ah….why do you people feel the need to shoot people’s look down and categorise everyone together? That’s how some bad belle people shut at the peeps at the “last flight to abuja premiere” crowd! This thing is getting ridiculous. Some of the peeps here look good …. They don’t all look like clowns Haba!

  25. bundle

    June 15, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    That awkward moment when Linda ikeji and Dan Foster are at the same event………i`ld say good riddance anyway, the guy no set at all..

  26. bundle

    June 15, 2012 at 4:43 pm

    One more thing, whats with Dan Foster`s jungle boots?. Those shoes look like the ones conservationists wear on National Geographic Channel

  27. Gimmer

    Fummi warriis that?

  30. Love

    June 15, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    Please what does the title “Dame” stand for? I still don’t understand why Nigerians are so crazy about titles! An engineer with a bachelors would want you to use Engr. as a prefix; a lawyer would want you to use Barr.; an architect would want you to use Arch. I know that in the British honors system, a Dame is the female equivalent of a Knight, but how does that apply in Nigeria? Why is Fashola’s wife addressed as a dame? Did she get an OBE from the Queen?

    • Mazi Alphonsus

      June 15, 2012 at 8:52 pm

      Good question. I suggest you refer this question to Mrs. Jonathan or better still, ask your village oracle.

    • Chikaka

      June 15, 2012 at 9:59 pm

      I think it’s from the Catholic church. Knight of St Mulumba and so on. But he’s a Moslem so maybe she was given the Dame alone without Fashola getting the Knighthood.

    • Alero

      June 18, 2012 at 1:51 pm

      Dame or Sir is used to address the females and males respectively who have been honoured in the Anglican church. “Lady” is used in the catholic church. In the Catholic Church,people are awarded the title when they have been outstanding but that is after going thru series of processes: one of which is thru a bann, just like u have Banns of marriage.

  35. darkhorse

    June 15, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    Ok, here goes. Julius looks like he left an owanbe to attend the show. Ara, Ara, ara!!! I know its not easy losing the pregnancy fat, but please do something about it ASAP. That blazer or whatever jacket/ coat no be am at all. Dare love, love love your look. Funmi Uganda looks like that Adams family woman. Mrs Ali baba, that jeans too tight na. Dan Foster, Nsala soup isn’t helping you o. Tee A, when is the container landing ( In thick ibo accent) I beg guys, if your privates are too large, try and pack them properly. Its becoming ridiculous to look at.

    some of these womens outfits didn’t match at all…the only one i liked is the young girl moet with american apparel red disco pants…she looks peng in it.. smh at some of the ladies who just have bad sense of fashion… even eva was wearing ankle boots and am thinking its sooo hottt in naija you need not to wear that at all…

  37. marvel

    June 15, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Moet Abebe reminds me of a Shetland pony. Albeit, a cute one.
    Funmi Iyanda has a Nubian Geisha thing going on
    Who was the uncle in that tucked in grey t shirt and a goatee(?) Overwhelmed.
    Mrs Fashola did not look good this time. I believe she should find herself a stylist.
    LDA looked good. Loved her hair and makeup.
    The men look awful! They need to step up…

    June 15, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Dear Linda Ikeji, I admire your hardwork and resilience but you either work on a wonderful smile (with teeth on display) or do it with your lips closed. Cos this your signature smile that always looks like your gum and teeth suddenly agreed corperate is soo not working! I like how you smiled on that mag cover with the bald dude.

  42. L.A Chick

    June 16, 2012 at 4:05 am

    Lots of nice look going on here… And not so nice look… But overall, that’s a nice crowd. Loved the look of the 3 ladies in black×600.jpg×600.jpg

    June 21, 2012 at 1:26 pm


    The way we Nigerians are embracing western/American culture is absurd. The dresses get shorter, the skin is super bleached the fake hair, nails are longer,etc we are copying it all. Where is the African in us bck home because those of us living in the Western countries are not nearly as Western as those back home, “why” you ask. It is because we are desparately trying to preserve the little that is left of our beautiful culture. I am not saying do not live a comfy life but please not at the expense of the parts of who we are that is beautiful, wonderful and precious.
