    Lovely, very lovely pictures and for whatever reason the pictures look “clean”… no unnecessary details, I love it!

    Didi Ocheja looks cute as always, but I’ve never seen Wunika Mukan look even remotely presentable. It’s possible that as she begins to comment on the style of others she will scrutinize her own choices (including hair and makeup) a little more closely and we will see a turn around.

      i believe she was misunderstood. i dont think she meant the distraction is cos of her beauty, i think she meant her controversial person attracts undue attention. Lets be honest, if she walks into a room most of us wld use corner eye to check her out. Lol

      No defence for that dumb comment of hers. None whatsoever, whichever way you slice it, it spews out stupidity of a very high order.

    Aunty Nike looks flawless. Chidinma is so gorgeous with her low hair. You have to have a pretty face to rock low hair, if not please cover your square head with hair. I love the designs.
