Forever Fabulous! On Friday 12th July 2013, Nollywood star Rita Dominic celebrated her 38th birthday.

To celebrate another great year, The Meeting actress was celebrated by close friends at The Rhapsody Lounge, Victoria Island, Lagos on Sunday, 14th July 2013.

Celebrities including Ramsey Nouah, Dakore Akande, Toolz,  Uche Jombo-R, Lynxxx, Michelle Dede, Sound Sultan, Thelma Ojiji, Toolz, Kemi “Lala” Akindoju, Uti Nwachukwu, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu and Femi Jacobs were present at the party.

Proving to be very much a style star, Rita arrived in a simple-yet-chic white shirt dress. Sporting her signature afro as well as smoky eyes and alluring red lipstick, she styled the dress with silver stud earrings, a diamond encrusted ring, a diamond and platinum bracelet and a black velvet clutch.

Music stars Praiz and Waje serenaded the birthday girl. She had two yummy cakes including a cream-and-pink cake with a red sole shoe on it (Yup, a girl’s got to always rock Christian Louboutin, even on a cake).

Check out all the exclusive photos, coming from yours truly.

      Its Yvonne! I agree with you though.

    I love me some Rita. She keeps it simple but stunning. She killed the shirt dress look. Yes, i would know, because i love shirt dresses *big smile*. Looks like she had fun…which is how a birthday should be.

  3. Lawlah

    July 15, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    Whoa! I think Rita looks good for her age. I like her but not the idea of a regular white shirt on her birthday! Everyone at the party looked good, except Ebuka who left his house, planning to be the “Mallam Ali” of the day.

    • Bleed blue

      July 15, 2013 at 3:57 pm

      LOL! Leave my Ebuka oh!

    • Alero

      July 15, 2013 at 4:31 pm

      He was obviously dressed 4 work, because that’s the same outfit he wore in rubbing minds on Channels on Sunday edition.

    July 15, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    If you have beauty and fame like Rita and you’re 38, single with no kids then you can’t help but ask the question “what is going on ?”

    • Madam the Madam

      July 15, 2013 at 4:18 pm

      No men to marry na.

    • Tiki

      July 15, 2013 at 4:41 pm

      What is going on where? With God who hasn’t made it happen, or with you being a busybody?

    • ife

      July 15, 2013 at 9:01 pm

      lol ur mean oh lol

    • iBA

      July 15, 2013 at 5:19 pm

      Hush did she complain to you? Is it the one she will marry someone else husband and become number 2 or the one the marriage will not last you want to hear? And people like you will be the first to start talking again. Mind your business when it is her time, God will bless her very well with a good man.

    • Tm

      July 16, 2013 at 2:07 pm

      ermmm thanks for being so concerned *tongue in cheek*. Mbok, who should we “what is going on?” Rita? or God? Why is it that people believe that a woman’s success is not complete without a man. Has she come out to complain to you? Hian!

    Oya let us dissect the look…

    Toolz I couldn’t look past the new growth in front of your hair. If you are not Team Natural, you should have done a little touch up on your edges, or used a smaller brush to smoothen those edges (or even applied JAM). I know you are a pretty girl, but something about your make up does not blend with your face.

    Uti Nwachukwu>>>>Present Aunty! Imma leave it right there…:)

    HappY Birthday Rita!!! I still think you could have rocked something better than the dress shirt.

    Ramsey, Yvonne , Thelma…y’all looking fresh! Good to see you guys.

    Something about this OC guy just makes me give him a 2nd look…a 3rd look…iLike!!!

    Aging gracefully is always a blessing. May God grant us many happy and healthy years ahead…xx

      July 15, 2013 at 5:16 pm

      this is why a lot of nigerian women have hair that looks like it’s running away from thier eears and foreheads. Her hair is fine just the way it is

    July 15, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    Toolz should own up dating Tunde biko, all this deleting of pictures she does on her IG is too childish. If you guys love each other enough to be together, you should be able to damn consequences. Your relationship would end if you guys want it to and not cos of publicity /press

  23. Naveah

    July 15, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    It looks like a simple, elegant, classy affair. Kelechi Amadi-Obi is one distinguised looking man. Ramsey Tokunbo Nuoah, an earring at this late stage? What is going on with you, if it you are not leaving your chair unbottoned damn near down to your navel, no you are wearing an earring? Now, if you didn’t have one as a teen or young adult, what possessed you go ang get your ears pierced? What next? A tattoo on your pecs? Please respect yourself, my bros and leave that for Wiz Kid, Davido and the likes.

    Olumide Akande – when did you become LOU? LMAO abeg make Bella Naija no kill me o. OLU = LOU? Okay o.

    Woohoo! Dakore found her sassy look again. That’s whats up.
    Err toolz hun. You are a fashion icon, but u missed this time sweety. You totally have your style. The A line figure dresses than run a little longer…Kinda like Sandra Bullock’s look in the proposal. That is what works best for you, stick with it.

    • xxx

      July 16, 2013 at 12:11 pm

      Shut up with the bleaching accusations. Is Dakore’s husband bleaching too? Cuz he obviously looks lighter than past photos, use ur head, it’s the lighting (not ” lightening”) and camera. The flash is focused on their upper body (her lower arm is darker). and no, I didn’t look that hard till I read ur comment. Calling out folks that are “minding their business” All you silly dark skinned folks with a complex, embrace your skin and stop running around trying to label people wrongly. Dakore is still beautiful brown chocolate… All skin tones are beautiful, boils down to your features…

    • Just Shut Up

      September 28, 2013 at 5:35 pm

      “All you silly dark skinned folks with a complex” LIKE THE ONES BLEACHING THEMSELVES??? LOL don’t get mad because people are observant! I don’t think everyone accused is bleaching but sometimes it’s OBVIOUS! You don’t have to be dark-skinned to see anything, IDIOT.

    • Naveah

      July 15, 2013 at 6:20 pm

      I think if it was an all white party, it would have been in the caption “Rita’s All White Birthday Bash” or something to that effect. I think it was just coincidene that four people had on white including the birthday girl because a larger number of the crowd have on various different colors.

But regardless, u looked lovely still with that yummy glowing clean skin n very beautiful makeup!! 🙂 Keep shining luv n all the best!
