      People just love to run their fingers online. Your rather lame critic did nothing but displayed your ignorance for the world to see. You have no fashion acumen and you’re grossly wrong with your assertion. This guy is one of the best dressed man in Houston. Do your research!

    Ramsey puts “H” in the word “HOT”!!! Jim Iyke I think u would have made a name for yourself in fashion design because you sure got style(just saying instead of that attempt at music); Jay martins and Desmond I see you guys o 🙂 okay Uti i have to give it to you,that suit is tight! finally that pic with monalisa and Emem Isong got all d ladies looking sexy and decent. Chigozie Atuanya looking good too.
    Overall….Ramsey & Jimmy stole the show…Nollywood sure got some fine brothers mehn:)

    what kind of crappy event is this and on top of that the presenter and nonsensical black carpet peeps dnt even knw how to compose themselves. “i am designered out” what in the world is that, looking like someone going to a fancy dress party. Plus the one trying so hard to force the American accent. So tired of substandard award events, presnters and wanna be giuliana and ryan seacrest

    • Cate Giblin

      November 2, 2012 at 7:39 pm

      She has been in at least 20 movies. Some of her old movies: Wasted Effort (2002), The Hammer (2002), The Hammer (2002), Songs of Sorrow (2002), Squad 23 (2003), Stolen Bible (2004). Some recent ones: Timeless Passion (2009), Bursting Out (2009), Black Heat (2010), Catwalk Series (2011), The Ransom Yoruba Movie (2011), Love Entrapped (2011). There are many other movies she has acted in. In most of her movies she is normally the second lead actress and not the main Lead. These are the only ones I can remember. I hope this helps. I don’t understand why people hate on her.

    Is it just me???It’s like all dem naija babes for Houston wowo well well…Honestly our girls back home really dey step up big time, compared to all these wayo babes I dey see here.
    Desmond Idiot – sorry elliot …… what kind of hair style is that? Even with that glasses. You are too fat to be wearing such hair style…..No hating! Dreads doesn’t go well on round or fat face…..Better on a straight / leaner face.
    Jim and Ramsey exude sex…nice one mates.
    Uti,big up… are tight.
    Man in Pink suit, may God have mercy on you.
    Sheyi Brown…you are stepping your combination.
    All my Ghananian brothers, (Dumebi and Majic) tumb up…una try well well.

    Well I never…wait…was that Segun Gele getting their breaths together? I have lived and seen,lol. But that was good though, having dragon breath does not help an interview.

    Uti does wear the hell out of a suit. I would prefer it to be just a tad looser though. Mai Atafo job well done.

    Ramsey looks good but that outfit is too casual for the event.

    Mchewwww. They emulate the western culture for fashion and not for professionalism. I got really upset the last time I watched a Nigeria movie when I notice that Monalisa Chinda had the same hair style in a story that says “5 years later”, I was really embarrassed when my America friend said “Does that mean she did not change her hair in 5 years”. Also am still trying to understand why they have to come to Houston for this event, anyways, they should try and take some lessons from Hollywood on their way back.

    See the way they are all looking like p rom queens! If na Nigeria dem host the show now, everybody for don yab the dress sense finish, now its the US, no one is talking about the guests , just the celebrities! Naaaansense!

  32. Brandigest

    November 3, 2012 at 10:11 am

    I give Ramsey Noah an ‘A’. He did steal d show. Jim Iyke has always shown distiction in fashion sense so I am not surprised.

  33. Camron

    November 3, 2012 at 10:56 am

    nice event and atleast good dress sense. wowwwwwwwwwww my boy Jim Iyke is hottttttttttttttttt. i think he would have been a stylist. RAmsey Nouah too is hot. NO no no for Desmond. dont just get it right with his eyes and his foundation talkless of those glasses. Majid Michael, hmmmmmmmmmmmmm something missing today and as for Uti, NONONONO to his suit and hair do. looks like he is preparing to to to the moon. my girl Susan beautiful Peters so sweettttttttttttttttttttt

  34. omoibo

    November 3, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    I see some nicely dressed folks but a lot of the women really needed a stylist really bad to help them pick out different outfits that would flatter their physique instead of what a lot of them wore. Dude’s were looking on point, but who was that clown that wore that pink suit & lime green poker dot shirt?! Any hew looked like a fun event

  35. Mma

      Are Nigerian movies only sold in Nigeria? or do you understand what it means to expose Nigeria Movies to the outside world? Let me break the good news to you.. You will never be a minister of anything, because you are still thinking like a typical local.. and you don’t understand product marketing and the need to expose your great works to the world for revenues… So Stay local in your business, and the world will continue to revolve around you.

    November 4, 2012 at 12:31 am

    why do nigeria celebrities love wearing sunshades in the nite instead of the daytime?

    Desmond Idiot, most intelligent actor in Nollywood.

  41. Cool cat

    November 4, 2012 at 9:03 am

    The guy in the pink suit…firstly he must be the most confident man on the planet to dare this look, and for me it is oooo soooo fashion forward. Style is about expressing yourself as long as it is not offensive to anyone.

    November 4, 2012 at 2:21 pm

    Totally adopting Dotun Ayobade’s comment as mine. Totally!

    Desmond Elliot, please lose the dreads, you look very silly.

    November 4, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    Dotun Ayobade… You are the man of the year! Just hope someone is taking notes.

    Can anyone tell why this award was not held in Nigeria or somewhere in Africa ? We need prayers to examine our heads. It’s so annoying .

  45. Gee

    November 6, 2012 at 10:47 am

    I love the fact that most of them are wearing Nigerian inspired designs from our own talented designers.

    November 6, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Thumbs up Dotun! You took words out of my mouth
    I just love John Dumelo……
    I don’t like Desmond’s hairstyle, what is that???
