    WEAVE for dayssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss.

    Take it easy! Seems that women are just slapping on 20in weaves on their head and calling it a day! Damn!

    Tiwa’s left boobie looks about ready to pop out… hopefully, she’s got super-hold tape under that dress.

    Otherwise, seems like a good night for a worthy cause.

    Thank you girls. I was jsut about to type, horrible looking hair everywhere. Geez, those weaves, plus the brazilian, peruvian, and the rest with -ian at the end, lol, just look tacky and razzled. I have no problems with women wearing weaves. I wear them, and I love them, but haba girls, even the so called rich ones that can afford the 200K+ types, look horrible. U can swear it came from Mushin market, not Aunty Funmi. Wear a weave that is a little natural looking, in terms of length and fullness, and please have a brush and a mirror handy too. Even the real brazillian, indian, chinese etc women, who own the hair, dont look like this now. Why should we that attach now look like masquerades? Nigerian women, I swear when a fashion craze comes upon us, we over do it.

    This picture, shu, N awa. Did the photographer want to show us her crotch. Ah ah, in fact, if you look closely, u can almost see it. Abeg o. Bella Niaja, your website is PG rated. LOL
    As for the hair, i tire for some women o, you would think there is a competition for who can buy the longest inch of brazilian weave on, bcos how else do you explain why a nigerian woman will wear a weave that reaches waist level. See me, see me o, i’m a bigs girl, I can afford 30 inches hair. We all may be wearing brazilain hair, but i no dey una level o. My own is 30inches+ cos I can afford it. Mschew. Money doesnt buy class. At the end of the day they even look more razz. Omo alata comes to mind. No, i’m not hating, because I cant afford it, quite the opposite, as these girls are obviously displaying, those ridiculous lengths are NOT classy.

    Is it me or does it seem Tiwa Savage has added some noticeable weight, she looks good anyway but she should slow it down a bit.

    The chick w/the hair that matches her dress should fire all her friends for allowing her to take pictures like that.

    Who is the cutie in this pic?? <3

    • Christy

      July 23, 2012 at 2:37 pm

      Aunty Ify, did she come out and tell you she has a problem with her weight, abi how your own be. You said she looks great, so really, whats with the she should slow down a bit. its not like she’s the poster girl for Weight Watchers or The Jenny Craig diet. I believe celebrities are also people too, and dont need anyone commenting or criticising them about their weight. We all at some point gain weight. I’ll like to see a picture of you 5years ago. Mschw

    • Ify

      July 24, 2012 at 2:20 am

      Thank God for freedom of speech on the web that gave me liberty to voice my opinion, she chose to be a celebrity so I’m sure Tiwa is open to criticism….I did not bash her, I only pointed out what I saw. Six years ago, I was a size 6, and I still am. Now please take a seat, and don’t get up.

    I wonder if Brazilian, Malaysian, Peruvian, Indian and all the other ‘ian hair will ever go away. Anyway, Beautiful people and lovely event.

    • Peppa

      July 23, 2012 at 2:50 pm

      you who is talking, that hair on your head is not your own so shut up there jare!

    • Chattyzee

      July 23, 2012 at 4:31 pm

      There is absolutely nothing in my comment that warranted the statement that you made. If you have this little courtesy for someone you don’t know, then it’s a shame.

      lmaoo….you almost got me sacked…laughed out really loudly at work.

      July 24, 2012 at 3:26 am

      @ Peppa, you obviously lack common sense.

    • Peppa

      July 24, 2012 at 9:42 am

      How can I be the one who lacks common sense when the girl who is asking whether Brazilian etc hair will ever go away also has fake hair on her own head?

      Please, lets stop the hypocracy. Thanks.


      July 24, 2012 at 2:25 pm

      peppa u dont gerrit and u will never gerrit…..u are just plain rude…….her statement did not even say wether she liked the hair or not…….not suprised maybe u no even pass WAEC sef….duh….

    • Peppa

      July 24, 2012 at 7:14 pm

      I beg your pardon but nobody is stupid – she is clearly trying to be negative. But because she doesnt want to come across as openly bitchy, she poised it as a silly question.

      Chattyzee, if you want – keep replying to my comments using different names. My point still stands. You are clearly a purveyor of fake hair so stop asking sly questions and pretending that your not being bitchy when you clearly are.

    pls who knows the particular name of the weave the lady in bright orange dress holding a glass of drink is wearing, i love it

  22. Tobechidaniel

    July 23, 2012 at 3:52 pm

    Someone pls get those Brazilian weaves away from these ladies.So fake and non-enhancing.

  23. @ajiriavae

    July 23, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    It seems Bella Naija needs to organise an event where my fellow commentators can come and be photographed so that we can see how they turn out because the criticism can sometimes be so unfair. And then the bickering amongst each other. Jeez!!!
    Be that as it may, I do agree about Tiwa. The people that don’t want to hear it are the same one that will laugh at her if she becomes over weight.It’s called show business so you have to look good. Besides, Tiwa’s brand is ‘sexy’.
    Anyway, The first collection, I love, love, love. The others were really nice too. Eku’s dress on stage was beautiful. The guests all looked so pretty. I wish I was there.

    Loved Eku’s dress…usually she looks like she needs a good helping of eba and egusi but this dress really flattered her(waif/model-esque) look.

    The lady in Orange is stunnnnning! Also lady in black with hair pushed back classy and also lady in green dress… ladies you have done it. Beautiful event. Would have liked to see more handsome men though. Eku is looking good and also whoever the photographer props to doing some lil editng. Nothing some glow and saturation never adds. LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
