    *sigh* was the fashion show at the end necessary????to worsen it, the entire collection had me irritated and angry just looking at it. From the models, to their hair do, to the very tacky clothes (*pukes*)….but why?????????if its not gonna be up to par, then don’t do it..totally unecessary..the celebrant looked good though.

    How did she manage to find her way with the bangs covering her eyes?

    Nigerian women, I beseech thee. Stop wearing these funny things on your heads. Wear your own beautiful hair with pride or at least wear weaves/wigs that don’t look like rags.

    i am all for encouraging new talent and all but if you cannot afford to put up a quality event just give it up. ariyike should just forget about this thing, or if she has such a burning desire to be a socialite, she should get better sponsors so she can come up with something better. you can’t even pull one single celebrity guest, so what’s the point?

    comeon guys……try to understand the objective of the event before you crucify the organisers. Its a well thot of event, needed for the ever growing entertainment/ fashion industry to showcase upcoming talent and also an avenue of young working class to socialize,relax and simply mingle…..Well done Arike. When is the next one?

    That’s the problem with people like you @coolcat. Must every event be filled with celebrities for you to tear down.The organiser knows what she’s doing and she has made it clear that it’s not a celebrity event. The few editions where she invited celebrities she had Funke Akindele, Derenle, soundcity vjs, katherine obiang, Toke Makinwa etc this is an event that even airs on tv. As for alll of you that are talking and criticising others, let’s see what you can come up with. I don talk my own

    There’s no such word as inappropriateness – its impropriety!!! Ever heard of glass houses and throwing stones?
