    These clothes are so cheap looking
    Muna’s face keeps changing as she gains weight indiscriminately.
    That red hair? No ma’am. Burgundy will work.

    Welllll, sue me if you like but as a professional makeup artist I can’t help but notice her makeup first *covering face* sorry. I think the makeup artist did a poor job of it. The smokey eye, her brows? a big no, no.
    Apart from that, she is doing really good and making us proud.

    these girls are not taking good care of themselves. you can tell they rely on clothes, hair and makeup to make them pop when it comes to photoshoot time. dang she looks like she is in her 40s with 4 kids. i am not saying she doesn’t look good. she looks good but she looks like she is them Betty Irabor and co league. where is that youthful exuberance ?

    which kind white lie be that? 25 years ko, 10 ni….she looks good even though i dont think she’s a good rapper or that she really possesses any musical talent, i think she’s only using the influence of being a former beauty queen and her acquintances with various musicians to put herself out….but that being said, i like her, she’s a beautiful woman . and please stop lying about your age

    I dont think the makeup or clothes did a good job for her. they shrouded her personality and the hair is totally not her. Worse still, the hair added about 10 years to her age – or maybe thats her real age. she can be a sophisticat and have a formal do without looking so old.

    October 16, 2012 at 4:28 pm

    Those clothes especially d last one u can tell was made by a wanna-be-clueless designer! d tailoring is so poor, oh wat a finish. the styl sef na anoda wahala, nothn sexy or nothing saying “look dis chic is 25 and beautiful”
    shez prolly 25 but i wont blame anyone who thinks odawise cos her clothes r a MESS!!!
    DER R SO MANY GORGEOUS dresses out now, blazers, shorts etc!!!
    let me scroll up and see who dis stylist is sef!!!

    Muna is very pretty and I think she has the presence of a star. Hopefully she puts out good music and has a good team supporting her. She is young and I believe that she’s 25 but she needs to work on looking more youthful. Hire a good glam squad and (I didnt really want to say this-> but please burn the fat. I absolutely hate everything about these photos.

    Asa is untouchable but one of the reasons why Tiwa is the biggest Nigerian female music star is not only because of her songs. She has packaged herself very well. The other female artistes look either motherly and boring (Omawumi, Sasha, etc) or scary and not relatable (Goldie, and the other Cameroonian girl). Omawumi makes good music but she isn’t on the same level as Tiwa. They could even be in the same age group. Tiwa is in her 30’s and could still pass for a girl in her mid 20s. She’s pretty, slim or nicely thick and wears trendy outfits that a lot of females like. Package yourself properly and you would see the difference in your career.
    Well, thank goodness Muna is trying to develop herself as a musician. I hope she succeeds because we need more successful women in the music business.

    people that are attacking muna about her age, all i have to say is that before you claim that she is not 25, the least you could do is to bring proof of her real age….shioorrr!!!
