    BN which one is ‘Mogulette’ naw, your journalistic hat wasn’t on this morning abi smh…Mogul would have done just fine and made her sound less cheaply – like kokolette (mogulette) guess that’s where that came from ehn #rollingmyeyes. I am probably overreacting but the fact that it’s a woman as well and she is doing it big, using the appropriate term is important e.g. MOGUL, this gives more power/depth to her success and career achievements so far (sorry to sound like a feminist but this is why sometimes successful women aren’t taking seriously, especially when a headerline such as this diminishes the importance of the article, all to feign urban jargon). I am sure a man wrote this article, if not then a novice who should get a slap on the wrist for their choice of words! You should know better BN #disappointedface

    Anyways Agbani, you go girl! It goes to show that where there is beauty, there can also be brains. #success #mogul #beautyqueen #entrepreneur

      I agree with you! The “mogulette” isn’t a cool play on words. I trust that the intention was not derogatory or to take away from her. But it rubbed me the wrong way too. Not my intent to be petty, but Mogul would have been just fine.

    It’s very challenging to keep to be comfortable yet stylish when preggers especially if you work in a corporate environment. One of the my major challenges was being able to find structured trendy outfits that I could easily yank up or down during one of my million pee breaks. I like that more designers are beginning to create frock for the pregnant.

      Hello, it took me 3 years to reply to this comment you made in 2013 and it is because i just stumbled on it and i have an entirely different philosophy about the word “Mogulette” as the founder of Mogulettes Africa. First, the name is not less cheaply and not in anyway related to being a kokolette. A mogulette is derived from the word MOGUL which is for a successful man in business and the word gives more power and respect to a woman’s success and career achievements and it is not an urban jargon. A mogulette is the contemporary version of the proverbs 31 woman, she is a successful and influential woman in business, she thrives in her career, home and society. She is a woman who is not afraid to lead, to work, to love, to cry, to laugh, to dance and to be all that she wants to be. The name Mogulette is a well respected name, it is not degrading, not demeaning and very cosmopolitan and classy for a woman who have been through stuffs in building her life. A Mogulette is Mo Abudu, Folorunsho Alakija, Beyonce, Agbani Darego, Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jolade, Toolz Oniru Demuren, Linda Ikeji, Oreka Gordis, Bella Naija, Hilary Clinton, Theresa May, Oprah Winfrey… These are worthy selfmade Mogulettes!
