    Genny looks good, gained weight, so what, she still looks lovely. Ramsey, might have to invest in how to grow bald spot back, it’s some miracle ways out there, but he still looks nice. Why are people complaining about the dreads, gosh, Nigerians and self hate. Patience, looks better with them than those hideous wigs . RMD, still looking hot. Gbenro Ajibade, come over here and give me some chocolate love. Is he single?

  16. Chattyzee

    September 20, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    Is it just me or does Omoni Oboli and her husband look alike? Mama Gee for life! Sir. Desmond Elliot, why na? While Basketmouth and Timaya are getting rid of their dreads, you are now growing yours?

  17. tolu

    Patience Ozokwor and Desmond Ellion (BN there’s a typo with Desmond’s name) look good with dreads. Their faces look refreshing and there’s no attack of the weaves.

    AWWWWWWWWWWwww look at my girl Osas! Looking good baby girl. RMD ages like fine whiskey, gets better with age! Stephanie – make that Kanalon (sp?) money with those braids, girl! Genevieve – love the weight gain, you look great but nix the shiny face…you always look like this in every picture! Ramsey – rocking that receding hairline with confidence, love it! Desmond – NO! Big square glasses, virtigo inducing prints and dada…too much going on at the same time, boo. Omoni and Nnami look alike but they do say couples that stay together long enough they start to look like one another. They look bored as all get out…what does her husband do? Jide Kosoko – maka why nowwwwwwww eh? Why? Leave those creams alone, sir please I take God beg you . Melanoma is REAL o no sey I no warn you o eh heh! Draw your ears o. Mama G – life is good o…you are looking fresh.

  25. tybay

    September 20, 2012 at 7:00 pm

    Leave pple to do d kinda hair they want jor o! If desmond and Mrs Ozokwor decide to keep dreads, isn’t it on their head? Does Ramsey’s reclining hairline remove anything from his brilliance as an actor and his personality? Btw @chattyzee, i was just about commenting on the uncanny resemblance between Omoni and her Husband….

  26. El Toro

    September 20, 2012 at 7:11 pm
