    For elegance and sophistication I would definitely want to see Genevieve, Agbani, Eku and perhaps Omotola now that she has a stylist. More class, less drag is needed if they are going to pull this off in my opinion.

    I would really love to see the golden hearted Monalisa Chinda and Omotola Jalade-Ekehinde there. They both epitomize the true Nigerian spirit with their diverse charitable works.
