    genevieve needs to stop whatever she’s doing to her face. on another note, that male youth ambassador at the back far right is a FINE BOY!

      Seriously!!!
      Are you implying she has had some surgical work done? I think a visit to the opticians is due NO?. Gene looks radiant and beautiful, no highly stretched or puffy skin, no ridiculously huge lips. She just looks normal, I think thats why others cannot see what you are talking about and you are being vague unecessarily like we cannot read between the lines. Just curious, what are you pointing out here? In fact if she has has some work done, she needs to give me the number of her surgeon (He is good)! I like the fact that her hair is pinned up naturally, the blue dress is so lovely. Even her blemishes look fine. Please lets appreciate our fellow African sisters and quash this pathetic rumour mill.

      Back to work. x

      So that she’ll give a broomstick a run for its money? It’s really not by force to comment. In other news RIM is really not doing Nigeria good with regards to customer service. People in North America and the UK treat the Blackberry like it’s a piece of rubbish and I honestly think their biggest customers are in Africa. Yet when you buy a phone there’s no proper warranty for them and if a lot of them have problems they won’t do a mass recall like they will in other parts of the world because they know we’ll continue to buy. Last year people who bought the newest Curve in Lagos (myself included) kept going back to the store to complain about problems with the phone. I was told my phone had a ‘guarantee, not a warranty’. What the hell does that mean?

      They know Nigerians are mumu and will spend on anything that is foreign because they have to fit in.
      Nigeria is every foreign investor’s dream. Consumption consumption that’s how our economy is designed! The government has made that possible because they want to entice investment and loans. It’s definitely not for the people to enjoy but for their pockets. They spend less..well, nothing on infrastructure/ development because it’s too much expenditure. A foreigner will not make as much money if Nigeria was a developed nation. We see a lot foreign businesses moving to Nigeria. There’s nothing to celebrate because at the end of the day, we are not enjoying from what they are bringing to our economy. Our roads are horrible, we have no light, water, security, proper education, and our Nigerian women are sleeping with men for blackberry phones, food, cheap clothes, and weave.
      I believe thats why we have few business people like Dangote & the other one making the most money. If your business isn’t associated with politics somehow.. then you aint shit. It’s unfortunate.

    BB10 is a huge disappointment viewing from the Naija perspective. Like so much expectations meeting so much disappointment. I’m reversing to BB regular till further notice.

      March 25, 2013 at 11:24 am

      its cute but the inner top and necklace that shes wearing are dividing her into various parts. She doesn’t have a long neck for all that distraction. It wouldnt even look good on anyone. The dress alone is cute and has its own thing going on.

    I read then copied some comments and added my 1 cent (i can’t waste my…ink or keyboard?)

    Genevieve needs to stop whatever she’s doing to her face…. post a picture of your face and let’s compare
    Is Omawumi Preggers? – Did you look like that when you were ‘preggers’?
    Is Z10 new in Nigeria? – No its not…the launch was in Mali
    how can anyone compare her to that,overload as* of a woman??? – Apparently you have no ‘as*’ hence your bitterness
    that lady was right….i dont get her face! – (that lady was right your face is worse) doesn’t mean she’s not fine she just doesn’t look right here – miss perfect, please post your pictures for 7 consecutive days let’s see…
    Genevieve should go shed some weight.- (are you sure you aren’t the one who needs to shed weight?) Her physique not right for a top flight celeb (unfortunately, you are not the ‘celeb’…Genevieve is)
    BB10 is a huge disappointment viewing from the Naija perspective. Like so much expectations meeting so much disappointment. I’m reversing to BB regular till further notice. – Why not get a ‘smarter’ phone?
    why is there so much space btw the guy that won d BB Z10 and the white lady… because racism and segregation has not been ‘completely’ eradicated

    I still maintain Genevieve needs to tone up. Age is coming. She not a baby anymore celeb or no celeb. They only starve to shed weight. Dress n looks do not say it all. Pronto

    I am not a huge fan of Genevieve, but i must admit she looks good, she almost always looks good. How old is she that y’all are screaming age up and down?

    Can she live?

    Sometimes we expect human beings like us to be perfect at all times. Genny is gorgeous, regardless of what some people here are saying. Her body is changing as she’s getting older, same way every woman’s body changes. Some of you can’t even boast of being that trim after one child (or even without kids) so calm down. She looks amazing! 🙂

    Glad that blackberry came to Nigeria..our love our love for dis rubbish gadget is just too much because of pinging I guess..Nigerians will buy it 4 sure girls will start crying for it bcus its like a status thing in Nigeria..as long as am concerned BB is going down!

    Wonder y the BB is still such a big deal in Naija when better smart phones have taken over the UK and American market? Was in America recently and just said to change my BB cover, none of the malls or shops I asked in had BB accessories…just a few ple and of course mostly my Naija ple had the BB….I use both and indeed I think the IPhones are a much smarter option…

  52. Yes

    I know we have some good days and some better days. However, Genny missed the mark with this outfit. The dress is pretty, however, it showed the stretch marks on her boobs. A slightly higher neckline would have worked better. As a celeb you are constantly representing and it is wise to pay attention to the details. This is my constructive critique.

  56. Aduke

    March 26, 2013 at 7:38 am

    Goshhhh Genny looks super amazingggg!! I mean from head to toe! Effortlessly stunning n oozing enough class as always! That dress n colour is gorgeousss! Lovely glowing skin too!

    And those of u going on about some stretch marks, am i the only one not seeing it?? Cos ive looked real well o. Kai some of u! Smh…

    And to that thing called BLACKBERRY, abegi garbage! Soo sick of it!
