BN Picks 4 Must See Looks
Let’s kick off our must see look list with the hosts of the day – Waje and Gideon Okeke.

Ladies First! Nigerian music star, Waje arrived on the red carpet of The Future Awards 2012 in a floor length black dress accentuated with a red Ankara embroidery. She accessorized the look with gold round drop down earrings and gold cuffs.

Inside the Aztech Arcum, Waje proved she could dazzle once again by donning a brown satin knee length frock, which she accessorized with the same gold earrings she wore on the red carpet and chunky gold bracelets and finished the look with sequined pumps.

For her last look of the day, the For a Minute star donned a black and white dress paired with blue pumps – Which of Waje’s three outfits, do you like most? Let us know.


Looking  better than his famous character in Tinsel – Philip Ade Williams, the small screen actor, Gideon Okeke proved he could be thrice the charm, by showing-off  three different outfits for the day.

He arrived on the red carpet of The Future Awards in a Grey Cheque Suit and Orange pants which complimented his white tee and black bow tie and black shoes. Later on, Gideon chose to wear a black suit as he hosted the show with Waje and ended his different wardrobe changes in another grey suit, this time, he paired the suit with a black button-up shirt and pocket square and a gold watch. – Which of his outfits, do you think he rocked better?

What better way to shine more than all the biggest stars gathered in one place – you show up in a eye catching outfit, that’s what Muma Gee did. For her red carpet arrival and on stage performance, the Port Harcourt is Back music act, wore a custom gold ensemble with a black see-through shawl, which she accessorized with a gold headband, bracelets, shoe and lots of pearls.

What do you think of her outfit?

Who’s that girl? It’s Adora Oleh! The ever smiley presenter of The Adora Oleh Show and co-presenter of MTN Project Fame West Africa, arrived at the The Future Awards red carpet in an orange cut-out risqué dress from Nigerian design label Viv La Resistance’s Autumn/Winter 2012 Kaleidoscope A Trip collection.

Adora accessorized her look with both gold and silver necklaces, gold earring, a diamond encrusted ring and finished off her look by letting her locks down. P.S: Did we mention she absolutely looked fab with her super glam make-up. Yay or Nay, what’s your take on Adora’s dress?

    ok @taiwo i so agree as regards the ladies… but seriously people i guess do not understand the difference btw awards shows and party time.. most award shows require elegant dress sense… tooo short dresses is a huge nono..clowny looks for guys nooooo…. i mean… also there is beauty in pilling ur hair up or packing it in a bun to an award show…. pulling the hair away from the face gives a classic look.. extremely long weaves to me anyways is just a no no…

    Fellow Naija women, please look at your figure the next time you want to dress western. Those who are overweight please get a Nigerian designer and make a contemporary cloth that hides the bags.
    BTW Mr Tony Elumelu’s got some swagg in this picture.

    I love Denrele and that’s it! Self expression toh bad gan. I heard Uti was very outraged that he won that night and was already cussing him out, I was at their table so I know. Who cares Uti? Run to your lover boy Abeg. Denrele’s acceptance speech was the highlight of the Future Awards and I must say, I was happy I met him that day.
    Tonto looked awesome but no one cheered her when she stepped o stage, shebi she be PH babe? She is not well liked there obviously. Timi damola and Bez were awesome, Chidinma needs to work on her stage craft, I’ll bliss should look into this instead of shepherding her up and down.
