Taiwo “ILoveUrGlow” & Kehinde “DJ Soupamodel”

So we decided to do something a little bit different today! You are accustomed to viewing all the exclusive photos from events all over Nigeria on BellaNaija. From Lagos to Port Harcourt, Enugu and let’s not forget Abuja. This time, BN journeyed to the tri-state area in the USA. On Wednesday 21st November 2012 as twins, Kehinde “DJ Soupamodel” and Taiwo “ILoveUrGlow” celebrated their birthday in style.

DJ Soupamodel is known as one of the leading female DJs, a Grammy (National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States) member and a music producer while ILoveUrGlow is rising make-up artiste and event planner.

From start to finish, the birthday party held at a tri-state area, was a fun gathering with lots of finger foods and non-stop music. Check out all the exclusive photos from the event here on BN.

    And then there was satin….and lots of it! what an unforgiving fabric….plus, the finishing of the outfits was poor making the celebrants look hecka tacky….nice crowd though!! looks like they had a lot of fun

      what’s wrong with satin? no be fabric? lol. Abi they should wear iro and buba with gele? lol. smh. females like to hate sha.

    • Amazing

      December 18, 2012 at 3:57 pm

      Nigerians and the hate word, cant a person express a different opinion without being labelled a hater??? I totally agree, satin is a very unforgiven fabric, it shows every lump and bump and the dress was not finished to a high standard which made the dresses look cheap. No hating here, just fact.

    • Peperempe

      December 18, 2012 at 1:27 am

      I agree with you! Satin has to be lined properly for it to not look tacky. The blue jumpsuit was the perfect example of how not to wear satin.

      I tire oh

    • Kitty

      December 18, 2012 at 1:13 am

      Yup its spanx. Spanx doesnt go well with satin,lycra or stretchy fabrics. Its very unforgiving.

    The ladies looked beautiful, dnt understand why the other twin, had to make her outfit trouser that spoilt it for me, love the crowd, enuf food and all, but i still Naija chicks here dress far better, i didnt understand some dresses, and the combination with panty hose, some outfit clearly didnt need it. i feel the Guys dressed better than the chicks, just saying

    • Amanda Vaughn

      I hope you know it’s winter here in the DMV. They wore the pantyhose because it’s cold.

  23. SweetBabyLove

    December 17, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    this looks awesome. A butt load of haterations going on.. lol. DMV has its own fashion statement, just like NY has its own. Per the panty hose, its protection from displaying some hoohahs, and also temperature. Plus panty hose in trend.. I mean in trend her and not in the hot weathers of Naija, at least this was more stylish in black, and not some Naija chic wearing white girls panty hose…
    Nice work ladies

    Nice classy birthday. luking pretty (especially taiwo). Dj Zimo in the house- Very fanstatic DJ. He needs to find his ass down to nig and show them what a real Dj is. Overall concept, I like.

  25. BISI

    December 17, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    @fifi…hater alert!..use to do your research. Overall, we applaud BN for posting good stuff on there site PERIOD! ..

    • fifi

      December 17, 2012 at 5:31 pm

      my dear u must be a friend to them, just because bella naija post them here dont mean a lot of people know who they are, am sure some people who saw the pics were like me asking who are these people, i for one didnt know of them prior to this, and only because of bella naija am i hearing of them.It has nothing to do with hating, i was merely expressing my freedom of speech. okay, have a nice day.

    • bisi

      December 17, 2012 at 5:47 pm apologies..dont take it serious…:)

    December 17, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    buhahahaha @ crossing the border. That is ridiculously funny. Unfortunately fashion in Nigeria can sometimes borderline clownsuits! yea some folks dress nice but some folks are just off the wall.
    I will like to party with these DMV folks, they look awesome, will be nice to know what parties are like there.
    And to the panty hose or stockings comment, girl it is winter! the weather is cold. plus some of those dresses are pretty short, and these chics are covering their “privates”, I doubt u subscribe to decency.

  32. Sbaby

    December 17, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    Nice outfit, wo is their tailor?

  33. Nkechi

    December 17, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Twin in blue jumpsuit me no likey something about the fitting aint right. Its cold we know but the pantyhose didn’t do justice to some of those dresses plenty other ladies wore short dresses with no pantyhose plus pantyhose with open toe shoes?? no no overall nice party at least everyone was dressed like they were going to the same event.

  34. mali

    December 17, 2012 at 8:17 pm

  41. BISI

    December 18, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    lolll @ spokewoman…
    funny enough..i dont know them personally, i only know of’ them.
    I just feel females(99.9% of yall commenting) need to stop hating and appreciate women doing things, and positive at that. One was outfit, its not exposing, yet SEXY. If na “ommphh” now, all body parts most be exposed in order to look nice…overall, its ok to voice your opinions, comments etc…but keep in mind they are human beings too and we all need to stick together…lastly, DO YOUR RESEARCH!! lol. Did you know djsoupamodel is signed to tpain as well and has worked with missy elliott and big names here in the states? exactly! only empty barrels make the loudest noise ….my 2cents… bisi aka the spokewoman..lmaooooo

  42. BISI

    December 18, 2012 at 10:52 pm
