Smoking Hot Divas! Omawumi & Waje Turn Up the Heat for the 9th Issue of Y! Magazine



This edition of Y! has as its cover music divas Waje and Omawumi . Two of the hottest divas on the scene are looking smoking hot on the cover. In a shoot anchored by the iconic Kelechi Amadi-Obi, the two songstresses were styled by Yemi Olowu and Onyinye Fafi-Obi. In the interview with the Y! associate editor, Hauwa Gambo, the women spoke of their music, their friendship, and even about their children. The singers also talked about their performances in London over the summer and this Y! feature is focused on profiling Nigeria’s relationship with the United Kingdom especially during the London 2012 Olympics. Hauwa Gambo assures readers that “…you’ll laugh, you’ll sigh, you’ll be provoked and you’ll be inspired!” Regular readers of the magazine can expect their favorite features;  #Hashtag pages of music, movies, television and places. Also the exclusive interviews with Susan Peters (where she talks about her feud with popular blogger, Linda Ikeji), ChyDinma of Project Fame, Ruby Gyang and Bez Idakula. Fashion savvy readers are also not left out with the beautiful pictures of  OC UKeje and Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindojuat the UK’s Theatre Royal Stratford East and a “Sport-on” fashion shoot.

    Love these two babes…:)…….To be honest although I am not really a fan of Linda Ikeji ….I hate it when people insult her hustle or just shows me that some Nigerian celebrities are really not ready for the atmosphere that comes with fame ….whether you like it or not if you are in the spotlight pple wld talk …good or bad….whether we like it or not she is a form of gossip……..her style is no different from TMZ, Dailymail, Nairaland and all my other American/European gossip sites i read once in a while……..the likes of Kim K, Rihanna, LAdy gaga…get bashed on a daily basis …even the royals Harry and Kate where victims of gossip sites/Magz recently………its bcos they know who is behind the ‘brand’ thats why they insult her a lot….. I know she can be annoying or overboard …..but like I said….she knows her market and is a gossip blogger…if you like read ..if not move on…….Personally I pefer Bella, cos its my taste….but not everyone would want to be staring at red carpet pics…and reading over nice comments in the comment sections…lol……………..if you good at something keep going…..

      My own is linda ikeji did absolutely nothing to those who bashed her.Is it susan peters bb porshe palava? First of before linda posted it on her blog it was circulated like a day or 3 before linda did besides linda didnt photoshop susan’s head on the body holding bb porshe it was the real susan so wat went wrong? Shld i talk abt RMD mtcheew and again before linda posted abt RMD 1 or 2 blogs already did with the photo of the house sef but linda got bashed.RMD never responds to media but u knw na politician mtcheew.Toke makinwa? she confused ladun for linda cos the day she got bashed on ladun’s blog d second day she came out thinkn it was linda.The only thing linda posted on toke then was toke’s red carpet pics nd pple hardly noticed her nd her flytime interviews.Let’s not even talk jim iyke that one is still growing.The first person to even bash linda was tonto dike nd linda did abslutely nothing wrong infact linda ahd a post on tont dike and rihanna where she(linda) choose tonto as best dressed watever).Nobody cnt knock her hustle,her job is gossip blogger.I must say linda is very stong kai wth those bashings person suppose retire by force.

    They look great, love the Ankara piece. As for Linda Ikeji, I agree with @what. They should leave the lady alone? Gossip or not? That’s her marketing skills and its working for her.

    This is the first and last time i’ll make a comment on this blog. SUSAN PETERS should get over herself!!!!! What does she even do? I have never seen her in any movie , all she is known for is her controversy, so she should actually be thanking Linda Ikeji for keeping her relevant!!

    Waje and Omowunmi are the best in Naija 2day…

    Omawunmi – burn that wig with immediate effect an alacrity! Love the picture of these two divas, Waje and Omawunmi are the voice of this new generation…they can out sing all these so call singers like Rhianna, Cassie, Ashanti. These ladies can BLOW!

    @ Susan VS Linda Ikeji – These ungrateful celebrities sef sef, if bloggers were not writing about them, would some of them even be relevant? When was the last time RMD was in a movie? He moved on to politics and even then he is not a star in THAT arena so he should be happy sef someone is talking about him. As for Susan Peter, she needs to look in the mirror and ask herself this question: What is my purpose in life? We don’t know what you are darling and what your contribution truly is in the industry so get over yourself and get back to defining who you are! We don’t know if you are an actress, or abi na singer, director, producer or wetin. All we ever see of you are promo pictures for no particular reason i.e. promoting a film or album and all we see is pictures of your flying from one party or award show to another! You would think with all the reality shows that abound, and with all your exposure that you would get on there to host something. Nne, THANK LINDA for keeping your name on the lips of people because at this point the highlight of your career has been flying to New York to present an award at the NEA awards and for the amount of time you’ve had in the industry, I don’t think that is much of an accomplishment!

    I was aboutto rush and get a copy of this mag, until i read the Susan Peters/Linda comment, i had to go back and look through the entire contents of the mag in this write up above. Sorry, i can’t justify such waste of my hard earned cash. Buying this will be a form of justifying the mediocrity called Susan Peters.Shame! cos i really would have loved to read about OC, Ruby, Chydinma and even the Tolu’s photo diary. We need to stop indulging these folks with zero talent in any discernible form who seem to survive on public exposure. I have chosen to make a stand,starting with Susan Peters.

    September 26, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    linda is actually a role model and a celebrity……..i do not think that by releasing such informations that she has insulted anybody…………as a matter of fact linda seem to be respectful……..

    @nawea…….i agree with you……..waje and omawumi are far better than these american soul and r&b singers ……..their music is pure….

    I don’t really know Waje – name got lost in the “female singer / diva” file somewhere with Lami and others. But proud of her for showing some leggggg.
    I do know and love Omaaaaawumiiiii. Rock on, sista.
    I’m attracted to this Y! . It’s so woman this time. It’s one of my two must-have magazines. I have every single issue in shrink wrap in my room lol.

    September 27, 2012 at 8:45 am

    You dont know Waje? Tosin, you’ve clearly been existing under a tree. She looks amazing as well as Omawumi and why does Lami get into this mix? Get over your little self biko!
    Susan Peters again? Why do we keep giving this female the minutest relevance?

  26. Keke

    September 27, 2012 at 8:46 am

    Waje is loosing some weight fast and Omawumi should lose that hair fast

    September 27, 2012 at 8:52 am

    Ok sensationalism is the new Y! Magazine, you decided to chronicle Susan Peter’s beef of all things. Havent other worthy things happened that people would wanna read. You are turning into a tabloid slowly. However, waje looks divine on the cover and why is Omawumi pained and constipated?

  30. neon

    September 27, 2012 at 9:19 am

    OC Ukeje…. this boy is fine sha…..
