    What is all this?
    Hope the tenth pic is not Isioma Onyebo? If it is, I have lost hope for her! This babe used to be very dark and chocolate skinned, wats with the yellow tone? Ewwww
    Venetia also used to be dark, she sef dey rub Tiannah speciale cream. And her real name is Kevwe. I wonder when last she visited Edo state sef? #hiss
    Sylvia looks nice.
    Judges are sooooooo unqualified!
    The 1st runner up should have won. Her graceful pose in the Top3 pic says a lot about her.
    Lets hope the winner doesn’t sit at the receptions of Sylvia’s place in Surulere attending to customers!

    Can’t hate. Her efforts are duly noted, well done Sylvia. however I sincerely wish that ladies could concentrate a teeny weeny bit more on professional courses. Entertainment, modelling,fashion e.t.c. are simply put fantastic, but we could also have more female doctors, engineers,politicians e.t.c………

    No hiding place for the wicked hearted ones Shey?
    She is trying so hard but honestly, I’m waiting for the day I will run into her at a public event. I will create the showdown of the century. Let her watch her back. No threats
