    Davido in some years to come
    It looks like Uti and his friend go shopping and plan their outfits together.
    This is the best I have seen Juliet Ibrahim look. Her hair is beautiful and it makes her look younger.
    I applaud Halima Abubakar! She looks good as a baldy! She is a confident woman to attend an event with like that-Especially in Nigeria where individuality is a rare quality and people are too accustomed to on an unknown foreigner’s hair sitting on almost every female’s head.

    Susan Peters was best dressed. Followed by Beverly Naya (just lighten-up on the eyebrow pencil, and the bun’s too tight). Juliet looked nice. That’s all.

    Could they not do a better job with event coordinator, decor etc. This is APPALLING to say the least. I mean seriously. The stage is terribly cluttered! The red carpet is dirty and tacky! The tent has holes in it and black paint scribbles! The stages has Xmas lights!!!! This is beyond me. Wow, this was put together for Nollywood and people showed up for it. I can’t laugh any harder LOL

    Susan peters is one of nollywood’s worst dressed. Pink shoes on pink sequins? C’mon. Did compere duties go to the hot damsel in a few of the pics? Mercy Aigbe is MIA in most of the pics with Nonso diobi.

    Belinda effah, nice figure but a little too much back fat and what’s with the tacky rosette? Ayo Adesanya, just stop. Dayo amuse lady is kinda my best looking, her outfit just suits her perfectly and she has such a pretty face

    First of all, its good to see a mixed crowd of english and yoruba actors together especially on bella naija. Second of all, some nice styles and some horrible ones. Some of my yoruba actcresses looked good, but some, pls is there any stylist out there for the actcresses. Make up, outfits not on one point all. Movies on point but style, nonono. Please
