    Omotola, you are beautiful but you need to loose weight and a proper stylist. Everyone looked tacky.


    July 13, 2013 at 2:40 am

    Where is Noble?
    Hard work deserves a reward. Great initiative.

    Why does Tara always look so tacky?its so annoying, she doesn’t even try at all

    Yomi leave omotola the way she is. What is it now? Does she look fat to you? Why always complain? I understand you want the best for her but as a woman myself, I know the struggles of staying in shape! And I’m not even married. Body types are different .if you know anything about the female body, then you’ll know she’s doing the best she can and we love her whichever way. You am sure my friend needs to loose many things too and perhaps gain some.some Nigerians need to stop being unnecessarily picky!ive seen people in Hollywood not as trim as her!

    Picture Omotola skinny, she will not be as beautifulas she is.and Remember, African women are so beautiful when they are fat.Omotola with her weight.I’m also a persn with large structure and I’m so happy with that God created me like that and remember, we(human beings) are the picture of God.If you are critising Omo-sexy, you are critisingGod.Thanks.
