  23. Tobechidaniel

    July 31, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    Thrilled for the couple’s opening. Ideas which come into fruition, no matter how small (or big) should always be celebrated. Meanwhile, I see some of the men have been imbibing alcohol. Not a pretty look.

    July 31, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    The yellow girls sure did look out of place but they have nice legs sha, I can’t lie. There’s no bleaching or cellulite either, even the orange dress is not bad, just a ill stomach which is allowed in naija. Congrats again ugh and bukky.

  35. Wow

    August 1, 2012 at 12:13 am

    Hmmm, “make me beauty”? I’m sorry what type of grammar are we teaching our kids with such English. I’m obviously missing something. Anyway, congrats to them!

    August 1, 2012 at 2:19 am

    I feel Omotola is a very pretty girl,probably one of the prettiest in NOllywood BUT she has zero dress sense.She needs to loose a lot of weight,and wear things that would flatter hers shade, stay away from tight or busy outfits.keep it really simple,pay attention to your hair and be chic and classy- take lessons from Genevieve. Omotola no offense,I wish you well.

    • Jhaye

      August 1, 2012 at 1:24 pm

      who says being “lepa-ish” is the only mark of beauty? Please get a life. a woman should dress to suit her physique. what works for Genny may not necessarily work for Omo-Tee. If you wanna hate on her please find some other channel. She was dresses casually and it brought out her beauty in this instance. Should she have dressed like those thress girls who obviously got the wrong IV? One size does not fit all!!! Mschhheeeewww!!!!

    • Jhaye

      August 1, 2012 at 1:37 pm

      * She was dressed!!

  41. Sansarai

    August 1, 2012 at 2:27 am

    I luurrvvve this lady’s look from head to toe: understated elegance, neat and classy! Note that there are no layers upon layers of waist-length peruvian to be seen, no excessive make-up or unnecessary accessories. Her simplicity makes her natural beauty shine…if you want to make a statement, this is how it’s done folks.

  42. NNENNE

    August 1, 2012 at 2:40 am

    Omotola and Amadi-obi’s wife look alike. Wishing the Igbokwe’s everything they wish for themselves.

    Bellanaija, Don’t you mean “Make Me” beauty salon? rather than “Make me Beauty” Salon? Congrats to you Igbokwes, yours is a story that shows that hard work and determination pays off all the time. kudos to you. I made my hair at “make me” salon twice, before i moved out of lagos and i wasn’t disappointed. kudos
