BN Exclusive: Lynxxx, Eku Edewor, Uti Nwachukwu, Jumai Shaba, IK Osakioduwa & Julius Agwu at the “Omotola: The Real Me” Reality TV Show Cocktail Launch in Lagos



So what’s the verdict? Who watched the debut of Nollywood star Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde‘s reality TV show, Omotola: The Real Me which premiered on AfricaMagic Entertainment.

Just before the premiere episode, a cocktail launch was held on Wednesday 5th December 2012 at the Wheatbaker Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos. Draped in a floor length metallic plum backless Iconic Invanity frock, the 34 year old star proved she was the star of the night.

To support at the launch of the reality show were stars, personalities and socialites including IK Osakioduwa, Eku Edewor, Lynxxx, Jumai Shaba, Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi, Zizi Cardow, Bez, Toke Makinwa, Julius Agwu, Yvonne “Vixen” Ekwere and AY.

BN Buzz
Apart from the ambiance, attendees and the fashion highs and lows, here are some of the most buzzed about stories of the night.

Uti Nwachukwu proposes to Omotola – Ok calm down, BellaNaijarians it was only a joke. At the Cocktail Launch of Omotola: The Real Me, Big Brother Africa alum, Uti Nwachukwu jokingly proposed to Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde declaring his love for the star. Omotola, who arrived hand-in-hand with her better half, Captain Matthew Ekeinde, had a good laugh about the proposal, so did all attendees.

Whew, that’s a relief.

Femi Brainard & Uche Nwokocha Make First Public Appearance as a Couple –  Nigerian actor, Femi Brainard made his first public appearance with his on-air-personality wife, Uche Nwokocha at the Omotola: The Real Me cocktail launch. The couple who had their traditional wedding last month were all smiles as they posed for BN Glam Cam. The couple are expected to have their white wedding in 2013 according to a source.

    Who was the person saying the occasion was a flop? it looked well attended to me for a Reality Show. Apparently, the premiere is the most watched program ever on African Magic.. Well done OmoT

  17. ruki

    December 7, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    Saw few mins of the show and felt it was scripted , let’s see how itt goes shaa,

    • kendra zuhair

      December 7, 2012 at 9:50 pm

      The show is definately scripted… Plus I don’t get why Omotola was “explaining” every 15 seconds… I won’t be keeping up wit omo-T. And she shuld keep her arms covered on TV as there is no photoshop to tone her flabby arms… They were all in my face

    • Royal class

      December 7, 2012 at 11:27 pm

      Hmm hater alert! It’s not the keeping up with OmoT show! You probably watched the wrong show! Everyone thinks she looked fab! Go with your badbelle self!

  18. cynthia

    December 7, 2012 at 8:38 pm

    karen igbo abeg cover ur breast every pic on bella naija always show ur boob hanging like ara nwaenyi asaba. for all this naija women wey get unattractive s legs like rukky sandy wey her leg dey like dry firewood with spot please i dey beg u cover ur leg and min it is not made for u still u do something about ur leg for God sake u are a celebrity and i am pretty sure they pay u more than an average naija babe so look like one. and all this girls wey no fit maintain their own hair how u think say u go maintain another continent hair for ur head. abeg make una fit ur wig jooor!!

  19. Madam the Madam

    December 7, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    If I recall, someone on the other post said that no significant people attended this event, and that it was poorly attended. Who did you expect to see? Beyonce and JayZ? Nonsense.

    Karin looks like a human being this time around. Keep it up.
    Olisa Odibua just needs to go home and stay home.
    Rukky, as you are “doing whatever it takes to maintain your skintone”, kindly include your mismatched legs to the equation.
    Ariyike Akinbobola is so pretty.

    Congrats to Omosexy. This woman just keeps getting hotter and hotter with age.

    • .....just saying

      December 10, 2012 at 10:10 am

      The point is Omotola is supposed to be an A list celebrity but none of the celebs there were of that calibre. All we had were M-net celebs which obviously M-net invited as it’s featuring on their platform- Karen, Uti, Eku, Ik etc.

      For Omotola’s “calibre” we expected to see the who is who in the entertainment industry and even in the society sef.

      She should take a cue from Rita Dominic

    Omotola is the most beautiful woman to have graced our screens, love the shot with Uti on his knees and she’s cracking up. You know a true beauty when she still looks beautiful with such laughter. I am literally obsessed.

    Denrele was the entertainer of the night! He danced, screamed and made everyone laugh. As always, his friends were close…Karen and Ruki and he was introducing them around.
    He told everyone to clap for him else their children would look like him. People didn’t waste time in clapping. P,s BN do you have his contacts? I need a friend like Denrele.

    I love the way they all looked. Now this is a classy matured crowd! No unnecessary tacky Red carpet, No silly and meaningless expose! Even Karen behaved herself! INFACT this is the best I’ve seen karen look!…I see some big wigs that Bella did not label? Amazing I see the MD of multichoice ! He does not attend events! This is the best I’ve seen Toke, denrele… The dudes came out too to play. See big boys. Lynx my man, exclusive,I.k,Ebuka…I’m so impressed! Smiled all through.
    Congrats Omosexy ! Every one knows you’re always one to look out for! Keep soaring …you the Best.

    Happy for you Aunty Omo T.
    But how come none of the actors or actresses your calibre cam eout to support you.
    Every Clooney has a Pitt.
    Every Aniston has a Cox.
    Just wondering….

    • Clara

      December 8, 2012 at 11:45 am

      Abeg let them not come. See how civil and glamorous the event was. If they came it would have been unecessary competition and pr people trying to save their client’s reputation by smearing other’s outfit and appearance! Etc…them for don distract and cheapen the subject matter.
      I’m in this industry and know the null crap! Omotola is not in any cliques and is always on he’d own lane . Most of us behind the scences admire her for this! Great event .

    Gbenro Ajibade is just the finest guy on TV right now as far as i’m concerned. He’s just too much. Hot chocolate. Congrats to Omo T. Osas is fiiine. Toke looks good, though i don’t understand the excess breast showing. As for y’all asking for other actors, well we all know that Omo T isn’t in any clique, so it’s no surprise…
