    • anonymous September 20, 2012 at 10:16 am

      What’s wrong with them being at the party biko? Infact Tuface should feel privileged to have them at his party, it shows they admire and respect him a lot….

  • Austine Da Whizchap September 19, 2012 at 1:27 pm

  • ije September 19, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    Where is 2face other kids? Its was his BDAY rite? Karen is in almost all The pics cus BN took em from her twitter.

  • Naveah September 19, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    Were the guest surprised too? Because I don’t understand why they all look like they were called about the party location an hour before the guest of honor is to arrive, nobody is dressed as though they were going to a birthday party…and it’s not even like it’s a house party, this appears to be at a club.

    Karen – sweat marks under your armpit in 2012? Girl, now I know that BBA money ain’ t long and with all the luxury items you’ve bought BUT you have still got enough change left for some Sure, right? And if you don’t need to those glasses to see like my four eyed self, please don’t!

    Waje/Omawunmi – my top heavy sisters, you both need a stylist pronto! Waje – when you are top heavy and have skinny legs and knocked kneed, do not wear a mini dress, dear. Wear shift/sheath or empire/A-line dresses that come to the right above your knees or that are tea length to distract to flatter the legs and minimize your top. Also, since you are tall you can get away with palazzo pants and blousy tops. Try now, eh nne. I too like you, I want you to look your best. Omawunmi – burn that wig and the top immediately! Since you’ve had the baby, wetin come happen to your style? I loved how you would rock your ankara dresses, abeg return to your former modus operandi o.

    Halima – I can’t gather the words so I gonna have to leave that alone before the Bella Naija Post Police get me! LOL

    What is the trend of having 5 different cakes for one birthday? Just make one big cake!

    • stargal September 20, 2012 at 10:39 am

      lol… again

    • ESTRANEO037 September 21, 2012 at 12:40 am

  • Pendo September 19, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    Halima Abubakar…..i can’t!

  • signature September 19, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    i cant figure out why with all this money some naija female celebs cant still look nice and polished!…see karen’s powder dividing all over the place like google map! halima’s weave had me questioning, “bet why?”

  • cathy September 19, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    Oh mehn!!! BN commentators too yarn sef. nice pixs jor

  • nich September 19, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    They should all go and be watching rick Ross video…..

  • Mariaah September 19, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    I am not even going to bother asking where his other kids (long tory for another day) .. My question is why are our celebs taking their kids to clubs in the name of birthday party or surprise party?? They should stay at home with a nanny.. If its an early dinner party, acceptable but not one held in a club… Abeg Abeg!!

    I know my parents never took me and my siblings out for late night parties, we always stayed at home if they knew d party will go into the night. As a matter of factly, they found a way to send us home once it was getting late and dark even for a family/clan/village end of the year party..

    • Safeguard September 20, 2012 at 9:07 am

      You are so right my dear.. And we can all see one of the psquare bois with a cigarette, is that an healthy environment for a child? Don’t think so..
      Anywhere sha, happy birthday tubaba

  • anonymous September 19, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    A lot of people do not look good.arghhhhhh.oh no! Where do I start? Razz ness at the best! Only feeling psquare boys…the girls all look terrible!

  • anonymous September 19, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    Why is someone’s name and email on my pc oh!

  • LOUDA September 19, 2012 at 2:28 pm

    Haba Karen must you chook your enhanced breast on everyone dat stays close to you? I even saw your pant where you sat with Psqure. Halima please now stop dressing like this nah.

  • Chattyzee September 19, 2012 at 2:31 pm

    Halima, I love you girl, but you’ve got to STOP pouting! It’s not cute. And you blondeish lace front is just uncalled for…..

  • Larmmie September 19, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    Obviously Karen is the source of the pics and as for halima Abubakar,the lord is ur strength and fashion police ur friend 😀 Genny looked simple and beautiful as always….nice pics in all.LLNP 2Baba!

    • Bukki September 19, 2012 at 3:58 pm

      Lie Genevieve did not look simple nor beautiful … Uneccesary obvious wash!alias lie!

      • Straight4ward September 20, 2012 at 2:00 am

        Hahahahahahahah! Correct jare!!!! thank you very much.. rubbish lie! mtcheeew!

  • Aibee September 19, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    Miss Halima Abubakar needs to rebrand fast, hire a stylist and stop using those neon dry lipsticks, makes her look unkempt – especially when she does the ducklips!

    Where are 2baba’s other kids? Abi na only Annie’s girl dey live with them? That said, I don’t exactly feel right about takiong underaged kids to nightclubs. Annie and Monalisa both had their kids in clubs till late. I guess they could have arranged for a sitter or something. I’m not a mother yet so I’m not claiming expertise. It just doesnt seem right to me sha.

    • mama October 27, 2012 at 11:21 pm

      amebo……na only annie dem marry officially so am sure na only her and im pickin dey live for the official mansion….

  • licia September 19, 2012 at 2:51 pm

    I am now without doubt certain that this Halima Abubakar character dresses like a poor version of Nicki Minaj to get noticed. Common nobody can look this badly dressed except it is done unporpose for real. The poor thing should get her self a publicist and a stylist jor, i know “no publicity is bad publicity” but this one no be am abeg!

  • Chi September 19, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    Why is Dammy posing like that…lol

  • Chi September 19, 2012 at 2:57 pm

    How do you get a pic icon btw?

  • mamasita September 19, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    Halima is em em em………..

  • Annie September 19, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    Happy Birthday 2FACE!!! MUAH!!!!!!#LEGEND.

  • mamasita September 19, 2012 at 3:06 pm

    Halima abubakar is looking em em em………..

  • natty September 19, 2012 at 3:23 pm

    sad the other kid’s aren’t here

  • eesha September 19, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    Haba! don’t u guys read the story first before looking at the pics? it says “photo credit :@karen_igho”. Obviously she took more pics of her self with other ppl than of the celebrant.
    Halima Abubakar- no comment.

  • Motun September 19, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    Seems karen had a lot of fun @ this gathering, is that an underarm circle i see there….Eeeehw! Get a dry stick girl!

  • konnie September 19, 2012 at 3:43 pm

    Congrats dude. Karen, those glasses overwhelm your face.

    Please ladies, stop the ugly pouting…. no fine at all. You all look good

  • Bukki September 19, 2012 at 4:06 pm

    Only good looking people were psquare boys, rita domnic . The rests?………terrible. Waje- pls stop with the micro minis not flattering on you .genny -looking scruffy, terry -g step up your game now ,Karen -with that map under your arm,not cool. 2 face- should have done something classier . Celebs need to stop with the surprise party lie,it’s becoming ridiculous.

  • Cool cat September 19, 2012 at 4:06 pm

    Awww, genny is ageing. Hope she controls it though. Annie idibia a lil overdressed and no child should be in the nightclub with cigarettes and alcohol. Sincerely hope there was a photographer present with better pictures, this just doesn’t cut it

    • Straight4ward September 20, 2012 at 2:04 am

      Biko tell us how your Genny is supposed to control ageing….by holding it?? sometimes eeh people just talk without thinking! SMH

  • Indomie September 19, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    I had to do a double take on Halima! Na wa o!

  • brandigest September 19, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    Living Legend. Wish I was there to pay my own homage to the Africa king of music

  • kem September 19, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    awww other kids can’t be in their daddy’s birthday bash……more beautiful years to the couples…..mmuah, no comment for u karen, u just wanted to overtake birthday man

  • Dee-USA September 19, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    She’s the source of the pics, I get it. But these made her look like a groupie/fan. Even Wande Coal couldn’t be bothered.

    But on the real ladies, if you know you sweat much; beyond the control of an anti-perspirant, stick to dark clothing in clubs or other bound-to-be-very-hot situations. It is just sooooo unsexy. I see underarm sweat marks and I’m automatically thinking body odor.

  • Teeenaaa September 19, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    is it d picture quality or my system??? Hiaann!! dey all look smehow abeg.. and Halima *mouth sealed*

  • olah September 19, 2012 at 4:56 pm

  • hsad September 20, 2012 at 5:50 am

    Rita Dominic looks as beautiful as ever… Halima is a Nicki minaj wannabe.. Babes you are on a long thing o!!! she’s obviously preggos though..

  • Bawllerday September 20, 2012 at 6:48 am

    Some things I woulda said have been said. however, i’d like to talk on the Ita Giwa/Abbah Folawiyo matter. Please o, if you are from a rich or funky family, is it a crime to invite your friends and ‘soji aunties’? if the organizer of the surprise party didn’t think the birthday boy would love their presence, helllloooo they wouldn’t be here. free the mamas jare.
    thank you.

  • Lawlar September 20, 2012 at 9:15 am

    Looooolz at these comments.

  • dave September 20, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    1st, d pix quality r bad,really bad. Omawumi looks good, gennys simple n looks good 2. Som1 said she’s ageing n should control it,lol,hello? Dats how gennys always being,less make up n always simple. My probs halima sha, I don’t get dat girl o,lie lie, n karen,all I can say bout her is hian. N again,deres nofin wrong if florence n mrs fola attend d party now,na wa o. I just don’t tink 2face kid should b their sha,but,its his choice sha. Anyway, I tink d pix quality spoilt a lot,even 2face looks pale.

  • Cool cat September 20, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    @straight4ward, my dear, there are numerous anti-ageing remedies. Retinol will help reduce wrinkles and boost collagen production. I didn’t say “stop ageing”, but the process can definitely be controlled. You probably should research it before refuting my comment

  • Lily September 20, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Do people do botox in Nigeria?
    If so where?

    Genny looks simple and gr8 in d pix. 33 is nt dat old 4 smpple 2 keep on harping abt her age all d time, meanwhile many single celebrities r older dan she is e.g muma gee, rita dominic,bimbo akintola etc. Muma gee jst got married nd rita is so luvly. So lets 4get Genny’s age nd speak d truth. She luks very luvly & young in d pix.

  • McHama September 23, 2012 at 1:13 am

    bt baba don old o…lolz

  • One Love September 24, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    me love P Square pass any other!

  • Let them say September 27, 2012 at 7:03 am

    People will always have something bad/good to say about Genny. Good publicity for her though, envy makes some people to run others down- they wish they are in her shoes. Please learn to appreciate others and if you must criticize, let it be constructive not destructive. Always taste your words before letting it out. It’s a shame that people let out their anger on others- please get a life.
