Is Blonde In? Check out Kendra Etufunwa, Yung6ix, Eku Edewor, Juliet Ibrahim & More Rocking the Colour

Every once in a while, we stumble upon a new trend. And, even though they look great on a few, we can’t help but wonder if it is for everybody.

We’ve noticed some celebrities getting their ‘blonde behaviour’ on and Chris Brown is easily their poster boy. But, we’ve also seen model and actress Kendra Etufunwa make the very brave transition to blonde hair as well.

Hold up, before you get all frazzled, she isn’t the only one who has been rocking this bombshell look. We have also seen Tonto Dikeh and Juliet Ibrahim go down the same road, which begs the question – Is blonde hair the way to go?

Is blonde hair here to stay? Here are some Nigerian celebrities who have rocked the blonde hair look.

Who do you think rocked it best?

    They all look really horrible. Blonde hair is hard to pull off because it tends to make one look older than they are eg Eku Edewor. If I had to pick a top two, it would be Kendra and Juliet. Tonto looks like a witch with those roots, the eyebrows etc in the first pic!

    • waidat June 4, 2013 at 3:40 pm

      what r u saying?… can u say dat kendra pulled it off….open ur eyes biko

    • bidibang June 5, 2013 at 5:32 am

      first of all please what does blonde really look like? from my knowledge charlize therone’s hair is blonde, and plenty white women have blonde hair…this piece of mop these folks are rocking were dipped in some gold paint….uber tackaaaayyy!!!

  • oluwatosin June 4, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    It fits Tonto and Rukky more than others.

  • reallyyyyyy!!! June 4, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    Tonto and Eku!!!

  • Fizzie June 4, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    T.T. started it first if am nt mistaken but its looks good on tonto(the 1st pix)

  • Toyo June 4, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    So much peroxide in the (h)air – yes, pun intended

  • Lolo June 4, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    Eku is the only one it looks decent on. What black people don’t seem to get about blonde hair is that it is complex – you can’t just bleach your whole head and apply 1 base color – Kendra and Tonto! What the heck?! And Rukky’s hair is just unmentionable – looks like a Halloween wig for a lion or something. Blonde hair is best left to professionals, and on black women it looks best with some caramel, brown or SOMETHING close to your skintone to “break it up” a bit.

  • Retrochic June 4, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    it looks better on rukky

  • Naveah June 4, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    It is hard enough for even white people to do “blonde” effectively especially if the person is a natural brunette talkless of black people. It doesn’t suit everyone ESPECIALLY dark complected people, it works best on fairer people and even then it has to be done right by professionals.

  • ryry June 4, 2013 at 1:55 pm

    i lyk it on tonto n eku

  • madam June 4, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    They all look hideous.

    • Teddy Bear June 5, 2013 at 12:00 pm

      HAHA! I totally agree! I don’t even understand the allure. To me, blonde hair is boring! All of these people look like their hair has been fried! So not cute.

  • If you like vex! June 4, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    Kendra Etufunwa looks like a scare crow in the first picture!

  • be real June 4, 2013 at 3:00 pm

  • JADE June 4, 2013 at 3:00 pm

    Please a black person should never try the blonde look, it doesnt ever match, I like Tonto’s second picture, it looked good on Eku Juliet and Tonto, Rukky’s wasnt so bad tho, but that first lady is sooo skinny her pits actually define the word. and the other lady. Please try a new look 🙁

  • Funmology June 4, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    Eku Edewor… Perfect, Tonto maybe. The rest akward:-P

  • Funmology June 4, 2013 at 3:16 pm

    Eku Edewor… Perfect, Tonto maybe. The rest akward.RIP Goldie

  • chichi June 4, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    tonto, juliet and eku dont look bad though…Im sorry but Rukky is just tacky…Everything about her is just tacky and its sad cos she is supposed to be a really pretty girl

  • Specs June 4, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    All I know is Tony Tetuila “hit it first”……homeboy was way ahead of his time. He must have been the first blonde black person ever…even before her royal alaragbigbon Beyonce sef….hehehe.

  • Fifi June 4, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    only Tonto mbok!

  • pynk June 4, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    Ewu Malu! Meeeh! EKu can pass!

  • tybay June 4, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    One word, Eku!

  • Charlie June 4, 2013 at 5:00 pm


  • Sylvia June 4, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    It worked best on Eku

  • Nawa OOO June 4, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    EKU looks so old with the hair. she looks like a british aging woman. juliet Ibrahim is the perfect “light skin woman” to wear blond not EKU abeg just cuz ur light does not mean its going to fit you. Tonto looked best! I MUST TELL YOU THAT TONY TETULLA has been rocking it since i was in primary 3! so he is the leader and the baddest badoski lol Rukky needs help tho! stop the with the contacts and the blond its too much at once

  • Olaniyi June 4, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    ok! but arrrr….the half nakedness is getting too much…women common, its called private.

  • Toolz ni June 4, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    All looking ridiculous

  • Aryah June 4, 2013 at 10:59 pm


  • Deeee June 5, 2013 at 1:55 am


  • Bunmi June 5, 2013 at 6:12 am

    Who is that person in the first two photos? She’s trying too hard and her face is too strong for this -.
    What does it take to become a celebrity in Nigeria? Even Genevieve Nnaji’s gate man will be called a celebrity when any Bella Naija editor knows what he looks like.

  • myopnion June 5, 2013 at 8:31 am

    Eku all the way joor

  • Ezinne V June 5, 2013 at 8:56 am

    Are these blondes or ‘golds’….I’m lost???

  • Babious June 5, 2013 at 9:32 am

    juliet ibrahim,tonto and Eku my fav.

  • Titi June 5, 2013 at 11:37 am

    I think a black person with blonde hair is a no-no, like you are a white girl wannabe which is what white people say about Beyonce! Stay as true to your natural roots as possible, works better.

  • Demmy June 5, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    Rukky Sanda is so pretty. Eku’s hair is a tad too mature for her. x

  • Africanbeauty June 7, 2013 at 2:52 am

    Black women and their inferiority complex. They are always proud to rock everything else except their own things. They all look like a joke. When it comes to blonde it’s not about lighter complexion or bleached out skin. It’s about features. For example, even in white women it’s only certain of them that can rock it. Eva from ANTM is brown skin and rocks blonde hair well. Halle berry will not look good. So, all these people look awful

  • K June 7, 2013 at 10:40 am

    Really, none look their best in the blondes they’re wearing. Eku & Juliet look the “best”..Kendra-absolutely not. The rest-no. Rukky would be cute but her look is too busy with the contacts & everything else.. There are black people Born with blonde hair, but these celebs throw on any shade they can find. They need TONER for these blondes & customize it to their skin color. Where are their hairdressers? I don’t get it… Customize with dark blondes and caramel, mix with chocolate brown or darker blondes, and stop this brassy foolishness.

  • just i June 11, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    pls y does ruki alwaz make sure she looks trashy she no dey try at all, kendra pls who sent her n all those guys the look like someone is try too hard to wash gutter off them. pls drop the blond nonsense all of ya
