BN was the first site to publish the “Naija Runs Girl” video in January 2013. Since then, the buzz has been major for online star “Lolita“.
Now we get to meet the woman behind the persona – Mollie Balogun.

In real life, she’s a makeup artist and a hair extension technician. Mollie grew up in Ibadan and then moved to the UK. Her father is Nigerian while her mother is English. She is definitely not a “runs girl”.

    She is very beautiful…
    She should not really encourage runs aha, but with her funny videos she should show it ills, I’ll say…

      she is not encouraging it…..recognize sarcasm when you see it please.

    This Adeola the interviewer is asking the wrong questions, as if she does not understand that Lolita is actually a satirical character that is actually bashing the ‘runs’ culture.

      NO. The question should be, why does the presenter sound like that??/ Jheeze!

    • Leanne

      February 13, 2013 at 11:51 pm

      she cant speak, and the swinging between american and african accent and poor diction, how did she get this job ?

    Erm… That Adeola girl… her English and accent is quite distracting. Almost painful to the ears…

      February 11, 2013 at 4:52 pm

      Lol! Italian princess. Why do people form accent? I prefer people speak proper English in plain naija accent than forming accent and sounding very razz

    February 11, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    Who employed this presenter????? I hate to hate but Jeez….english, grammar, accent, questions…..someone just shut her the hell up. Cant even speak clearly with her right Nigerian accent which is what she obviously has, stupid questions that lack depth and make no sense, too much repetition and keep calling the girl ‘lolita’….her name is ‘Mollie’ dumbass!!!

    • Leanne

      February 13, 2013 at 11:57 pm

      she cant speak, and the swinging between american and african accent and poor diction, how did she get this job ? sigh, if you wanna do accent do it but please DICTION is poor, poor, poor my 8 year old niece will do a better job.

    • Elizabeth

      February 13, 2013 at 8:08 pm

      “Mixed breed?”,hun this is the 21st century please use the term “mixed race”.

    • Leanne

      February 14, 2013 at 12:02 am

Sweetie, english lesson biko. ACCENT, repeat after me A-C-C-E-N-T. Better still (akcent). I’m guessing your name is Nicholas. Also, the short form or Nicholas is usually Nick, or Nic ehn. You must be related to this presenter. Lol…….

  26. Ike

    February 11, 2013 at 6:29 pm

    This has to be stupidest thing I’ve spent 15 minutes watching & listening to. I don’t know which was worse, the interviewer or the dodo answering the questions. Both of you should find something better to do with yourselves.

    Not just poor girls do runs, even those from rich homes do it too and it’s also common in the banks too.

    @ Presenter: wrong question 70% , wrong accent 100%, general flow of interview: 95%
    @Lolita: Love you girl and I know with a little bit more branding your message will spread and show young ladies how ridiculous it is to actually resort to such lives no matter the circumstance.

    This sahara presenter!!!! No words!!!
    She is horrible, are you kidding me???
    Kudos Mollie B. I think you are very creative, keep doing what you do. True Artist 🙂

    gosh the presenter has got my ears aching!!! what on earth does she think she sounds like – “Aiyetoro meets Brooklyn accent”…..why cant nigerians stop doing copy copy, Adeola needs to focus on speaking english properly – pronouncing english words are the dictionary dictates before delving into the world of adopting another accent….. most grammatical errors she made in this interview was due to her paying too much attention to the accent rather than the substance of what she was saying – hence, the dull interview!
    the mollie too, seemed to get a bit confused in the interview – went a bit off-track – advice for mollie – when next you are asked to speak to any media person – prepare a short & succinct summary of what your message is to the world regarding your Naija runs girl videos – you seemed to go on a tangent with your answers….and also pre-empt dull unintelligent questions such as the those adeola asked….and finally keep your head straight in an interview, no need to keep bouncig and bopping your head – all these tips are in preparation for you stardom….best of luck!

    Lolita rocks my world. She is so funny, lol..

  33. Wow

    February 12, 2013 at 3:27 am

    Oh my!!! I feel so bad for the interviewer. I know some of the comments above may seem harsh but if she’s reading this, she should know that some of the comments are actually constructive criticism. She needs to take some time and work on her pronunciations and command of English altogether. Most importantly, please please lose the accent and try speaking naturally. You’ll have a better flow. Wish you the best; truly.


    February 12, 2013 at 9:47 am

    haba…. the presenter didnt have to start forming ascent… was disappointed in her
