      Doubly lovely. tho Genny’s hair looks kinda out of place.

    • Skales' fan

      September 25, 2012 at 6:56 pm

      Na way! I say make I dey look before they start to call someone hater! IMO she looks like she was sad and lonely…

    • JJ

      September 25, 2012 at 8:13 pm

      I agree with Genny’s hair. Besides, Annie, the rest of them have pretty messed up hair. However, that is not new because we (Nigerian/ black women) would rather wear – up wigs and weaves with sumo wrestler hairline and missing parting than our real hair.x

    • HRH

      September 25, 2012 at 9:15 pm

      Lol she was sad and lonely cos she d only one who took it serious and held it too tight like it was audition even naomi campbell dey get fun on runway.

      September 25, 2012 at 10:00 pm

      hrh, you see as you are running about running hate commentary on genevieve?? she is lonely and sad with car, milk, drink and make up cosmetics endorsement while you are poor, lonely, miserable and sad waiting to run her down with commentary online. i understand you life is hard on you. pele.

    • Annie

      September 26, 2012 at 12:27 pm

      @feyi simple while u re replying,defending and running High BP with ur poor, lonely, miserable and sad self.My dear am sure u also heard “THE RICH ALSO CRY” she might have milk or watevr viju milk endorsement doesnt mean she’s nt sad and lonely lo money nor dey buy hapiness boo boo haha.If my comment was plain hate best believe BN wouldnt have aprroved it.Who re u genny fans to attck sumone cos dey refuse to kiss her -? who is she?! keep nursing ur woud and aunty gen keep trying hard.

    • HRH

      September 26, 2012 at 1:21 pm

      @annie thank you o.Why do dey think money is everything.Who cares abt her milk endorsement

    • HRH

    • Feyi O

      September 26, 2012 at 10:31 pm

      I am so glad hrh and annie put Feyi A in her place. She is rude and i really dont know how she managed to escape BN’s watchful eye. Ive realised that most people who insult as kids learnt it from home and i can only imagine what Feyi A has been through.
      That being said, we should wish genny well and pray her story isnt one of ‘the rich also cry’

    They all look Fabulous,but can I say something here (American accent),isn’t children charity show? so why the celebrity fashion show?she’s sure an Area Mother.

    I am sure all d celebs smiled to the bank after this or will have a favour in return.

    Note to Senator Ita Giwa:Please clarify your mission…I cant see any child in sight so you might getting everything wrong.

    It’s probably a way to get relevant and get funding for the so called***Children Bakassi Charity**

    Somebody help!

    Genny looks like a model.Thumbs up to all ( not your fault you got invited innit?)

    September 25, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    @ YummyMummy,

    I don’t think she has to have children there in order to raise money for her children’s charity. There are many galas to raise money for breast cancer, I’ve never see them filling the place up with women from the cancer ward…I am being extreme to make a point. Money can be raised without having to showcase the recipients. I do know that for these galas a lot of these celebrities lend their name and time because it is a good cause, I don’t believe that they charge…they do it as a favor to the host and the ones shown consider the former senator to be a friend. Most of them buy tables which is how the event is funded. I don’t know Ms. Ita Giwa’s motives or if her charity does/does not really do what it says it does but I just wanted to say that having a fashion show can be part of how the money is raised by having the stars volunteer to walk the run way, people pay for tickets/buy table to see that and that is how the money is raised. I know of charities that “auction” off time with a celebrity, people bid to have a dinner date with a male/female celebrity and the money goes to a worthy cause of the host’s chosing. So there is nothing wrong with what Ms. Ita-Giwa is doing (on the surface, of course).

    • Floxy

      September 26, 2012 at 8:26 am

      Bless you for your comment about the money being used for the purpose it’ is meant for because it isn’t. And I know that as a fact as I live in Calabar and the so called foundation building is 2mins drive frm my house.. Absolutely nothing is happening there.. She is a politician and knows how to scheme. I am not saying she is not a nice because she is but for this purpose? Nayyyy
      (sorry don’t knw how it got to show Chysom as the senderof the comment.. I did.. Lolzzz)

    HRH…you must really hate Genevieve Nnaji. You tell us that you “dont care” about her yet you run around mentioning her name in almost all your comments. You might not be aware of this but your comments reeks of envy and jealousy. Feyi doesnt need to take a chill pill…you do. Its obvious from your comments that you might start hyperventilating soon if care is not taken…please calm down…its really not that serious. It’s also not Genevieve’s fault that God in His infinite mercy made her numero uno amongst her peers…its in her destiny. Its funny when people mention Omotola’s name in any news about Genevieve…it only proves that Genevieve is all in a class of her own and y’all must hype Omotola and force her to be in that class whether she likes it or not. Like someone commented above, Genny should not be the criteria for judging which actress is good or not but people keep doing that and in their bid to pit Omotola against her, they even make her more famous. Omotola is a fantastic actress but, if people can be sincere to themselves they know that Genevieve Nnaji is the most famous actress to come out of the African Continent till date. HRH…its okay that you dont like Genny but please, just calm down.

Bellanaija has opened a respectable platform people like you should go to the lower gossip forums. You everywhere saying nonsense. We like them both, more mature minds prefare Omotola deal with it!

    • Let them say

      September 26, 2012 at 5:55 pm

      Thanks for your comment. I can n’t see any need for this argument for just one obvious reason .CNN will only interview anyone based on their professional assessment of portfolio as well as credibility. Why are we yet to see some of your hyped actresses on their? They are all good in their own individual ways but remember natural abilities are like plants, they need pruning by through constant studying/improvement, that’s what sets Genny apart. I dare say she’s outstanding! It’s a shame that African mentality mixes career achievement with other factors like look/shape, marital status etc ….Typical of man specie, when they see a colleague doing well or going high up they find a way to bring him/her down instead of commending and taking a little from it, forgeting that whatever you detest in life you cannot have- simple secret of success. It shouldn’t matter if the successful is younger, uglier etc. The truth is they’ve got what you don’t have and they’ve attained what and where you are yet to. And @ Gori, who are the diasporans, better excuse yourself; for your information I’m one. – sorry for the long comment all

      September 26, 2012 at 8:32 pm

      @WATCHER first of am not that much of an omotola fan i luv her but not up to Rita so i nevr compared genny to omotola i might have brought omot into the discussion but didnt mean it that way.I dont hate genny,this is a red carpet pics and what i noticed is SHE WAS TRYING TOO HARD! how is that hating,might i also add if i was hating BN wouldnt have approved my comment.Oh pls from what i noticed among omot and genny fans genny fans re the main culprit always bringin geny into omot’s discussions y’ll are the ones who hype genny not on her merit but by pullin omotola down.Omotola is defo in another laegue she is the only one standing there if i am to choose i go with omotola.Talking about being the most famous for me again omotola ahppes to be the one forget all those brain washing geny pulls out to the public who know the real who and the moste famous.Talkn about most famous actress out of Africa continent abeg stop the hype we have charlize therone full blooded African she might be white in skin but she is AFRICAN! so my dear she is the most famous actress to come out of African continent.As for let them say marital status is a factor when it comes to omotola,omotola started her career as a married woman nd till today she still is in an industry where divorce is the order of the day.Being married is achievement and to still be able to stay at the top of your game in nollywood is much more of an achivement.We’ve heard of cases whre many of these actresses either choose btw their career or family and those that have both but end up getting divorced.If omotola wasnt married no one i repeat no nollywood actress will ever see her back.You also mention CNN like it’s a huge deal Bella Naija has been on CNN hell yeah! uru eke was also on CNN so do u want to tell me cos uru eke was interviewed on CNN she’s better and bigger than Rita D? you can pay to get featured on CNN dear.You want to tell me if sofia vegara gets interviewed by a special network and Angelina jolie has never been sofia is automatically bigger and better? If we are to talk about solid achievements Omotola HAS IT!! omotola has a better filmography than genny,omotola also has better and bigger awards.I am a diasporan and i agree with gori.My 2cents u dnt have to agree.How come i mentioned omotola’s name once and y’ll took it so serious why not Rita? Fact is genny’s fans are threatened by omotola just a mention of her name u take it to the heart.I’d be glad if y’ll start doing that towards Rita.

    All the women look exquisite. Aunty Joke is a legend, looking beautiful as well. Rita, is my girl, she’s a true fashionista. It’s pathetic, that people are bashing Annie for her simplicity, oh, I forgot naijas are the most flashy people ever. Less is beautiful. I will have to say, she looked the best to me, stunning because no distraction of lacefront, or lopsided hairline. Classy woman. Funke, also looks beautiful. Genny, looked nice but not feeling the hair at all.
