    Excellent idea. She’s using what the Nigerian society is presently crazy about- weaves. I wish her the very best success.

      Was gonna ask why her hair’s tied in the front, yet she’s meant to model the brand. Sophie Gemal is SO fine damn. Veezee too, but this time she no too try with the hair and the top. Still fine regardless…

      go out?? hair extension is not a fashion trend na. its like expecting make-up to go out!

    • Babe

      July 31, 2012 at 3:26 pm

      They will never “go out” as long as black women don’t learn to appreciate their real hair. I do not mind weaves but I hate when women wear 3 packs of weave, 21 inches weave, and I hate when they put all those nasty hair products that make their hair stink like sh$t.

    I’m glad for her. She is obviously taking advantage of her present popularity. What she just needs to do is to make sure that she is serious with the business side of things. Good luck in her venture.

    Nice effort! That comment about Sylvia being dark and therefore, not looking “fine” is very offensive, but I’m not surprised given that some Nigerians think that being light is equal to beauty no matter how jacked up the person’s features are. Anyways, Sylvia is a pretty female with a lovely shape.

  39. Babe

    July 31, 2012 at 3:46 pm

    I like weaves, wigs etc.. When it is nicely done. But do Ify, Sylvia Nduka Jane, Veeze, Ishioma & the other women at this event think they look better with these mops on their heads? One thing I have realized is when you give your real hair a chance and get to know it like you know where to find sale, you will never allow just any horse hair sit comfortably on your head. You will carefully pick and wear the mane that makes you look funny.
