    So many magazines out there. what are they all really publishing sef? Who made Venita a celebrity? Urban Style or what do you guys call yourself… With all this photoshop hair-brushing on the girls… you guys will have to step up your game. And i notice you guys are copying Complete Fashion Magazine and The Redsheet Entertainment Magazine. You cant be like them oooh! Those guys are pace setters. I’m not feeling the cover at all.

    Nice attempt. Lolololololololol the last picture . Its not by force to look sexy , I mean what in the name of God are those girls wearing? The only sane looking person here is dabota because she is covered up and not trying to sell her body .

    If dey cud destroy d last pic with air-brushing, i wonder y dey didnt do the same with Venita’s cellulite stricken thighs??? i mean, isnt dat wat all mags do? The editor on dis one was just plain stupid. And i bought a copy of RED SHEET a while ago and d pic quality lookd like sumtin from one of those primary skool text books wr d pics r double bcos of poor printing. Very bad

    Allow people to live their lives.. These people live their lives to entertain the masses. acknowledge the right of everyone to share criticism with the world, but there’s a difference between constructively criticizing someone so they can improve themselves and tearing someone down until they give up.

    I wot anybody says, I admire Veezee and Dabota, I bought the magazone yesterday and I didn’t know friendship like this still exist. Celebrities are used to tearing each other, but these two are celebrating friendship and the love they have for each other. May God continue to bless my favourite besties and I hope me and my bestfriend can have a beautiful friendship like this.. I love you bola my bestfriend …. Veezee and Dabota forvever friends… Haters fall back…

    The photographer is quite stupid not to have airbrushed her cellulite. As much as its natural, not a good sight at all.
