    Nigerian women need to invest in undergarments. There’s no point getting all dressed up and I can see your pouch. From Tiwa Savage downwards. We all know no one’s body is Victoria Secret Model perfect, still make an effort to sell an illussion. With all the pictures, I was just drawn to their tummys. Pouches of different sizes and these are not even obese women o. Don’t let me start on the bras. Learn from Toolz ladies. Don’t spend thousands on a dress, hair, makeup etc and forget $40 spanx and good bras.
    Halima pouting is not for everyone especially with your facial structure. Plus the hair, it made your face look like a lion’s head.

    Yomi Casual will never let his man bits breathe. Chris Asekomeh’s suit looks like something an Obioma tailor made. It’s so tacky and ill-fitted.

  28. Brigitta

    July 29, 2013 at 6:19 pm

    This is easy..Yvonne Nelson was the best dressed female!

  29. AJ

    July 29, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Yvonne Nelson of course!

  30. Semmy

    July 29, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    Am so sorry to say…..though I’ll keep saying it….Tiwa, you are a beautiful lady but please tone down on your foundation or get the ride blend for your skin color…U always seem to get it wrong dear….xxx

    July 29, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    I dont think all is well with Halima Abubakar o.

  32. Lynxx & Emma Nyra are Nigeria wackest artist alive!

    July 29, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    Halima dress isn’t bad except for the busy hair..Eniola can you breath?

  34. Ada

    July 30, 2013 at 12:54 am

    Hmm, I never really understood why people kept saying that some Lagos girls are bleaching/toning till I saw this post. I have seen some terrible discrepancies between faces and legs today lol. Na wah! Some ladies need to chill!!!

  35. mujer casada

    July 30, 2013 at 12:59 am

    Is Halima sick? She has aged about 20 years. Her outfit is nicer than other outfits she has worn recently but the face and hair is ehmmm, how do you say it, DISTURBING!

  36. concerned Citizen in US

    July 30, 2013 at 3:01 am

    whats up with all these women with bleaching cream??????????. Ya’ll can still be pretty without trying to look white. This is what I call in igbo ” Iru Fanta Okpa Coke” Meaning Fanta face, Coke Leg. heheheheheh. Be proud of your skin. check out ” My Black is beautiful” Website. Damn!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • lola

      July 30, 2013 at 10:52 pm

      it doesn’t necessarily mean they r bleaching because they have dark knees , elbows and knuckles , a lot of black people suffer from this i think its some kind of genetic trait that most of us have even indians suffer from the same thing

  37. Aduke

    July 30, 2013 at 7:32 am

    *Sigh*….Enough razzness here mehnnn!
    Halima Abubakar!…Truth be told, u dress aint bad at all, i actually like it! But that very horrible n scary hair?? Gurl! U need to seriously stop! And even worse that ugly pout that u luv doing soo much makes ur face look soo crazy!! Pls stop this pouting, honestly!…Those knuckles too! Yuck!

    BEST DRESSED- Yvonne Nelson!! She killed it clean and sure stood out!

  40. chinny

    July 30, 2013 at 10:00 am

    I dont think some dark knockles are bleaching cream, i for instant i dont use any form of bleacing cream, but i found out that my hands and foot are darker than my face, my knockles are dark but the rest of my body are flowless and fair. i dont know if i should say is genetic with some Africans.

  41. lucy888

    July 30, 2013 at 10:11 am

    the best is yvonne nelson. tiwa dress is beautiful, but the Whole package is kind of old fashion. toke should try change her hair do and dress more kinky cos she got the body.

    Where is the Carpet naaa? i see interlocking tiles and no carpet jor????yvonne looks anorexic and its disturbing, anyway, which one be my own….Chidinma needs some tushing up. rita looking classy as always. i love tiwa, i will never argue again that she is thin, never seen her in all this ‘glory’,….overall—thumbs down, i agree, looks razz.

    July 31, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    in order of preference….
    Tiwa savage
    Yvonne Nelson
    Orange mono-strap bow detail dress (not digging the choice of shoes though, a nude or black platform heels wld ve sealed the look for her)
    Toke’s stage outfitt
    The lady in the long, black dress with sequins detailing
    The lady in the mono-strap red lace dress
    And the lady in the gold corset and black fish tail skirt

    Yemi Alade
    Dayo Amusa needs to loose abt 25kg to actually rock dat dress other wise the dress in itself is noce

    July 31, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    Beautiful faces have no names, it aint fair, Bella naija, the world comes here to see and admire what is going on in Nigeria entertainment and show biz industry, i kindly suggest that you dont compromise your standard and honour those fine babes with their names, just saying

  52. mcmeffy

    July 31, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    August 1, 2013 at 12:59 am

    The lady in green made me smile. Do you see the wind effect? I wish she had better accessories, tho. Yemi looks spicy and fun. The lady with Elvis looks gorgeous. And, no, she isn’t bleaching. And don’t like some of the pictures but sometimes you can’t help looking wrong.

    • Amalaonye

      August 1, 2013 at 1:00 am

      *I don’t* I wasn’t referring to Chidinma in green.

    Yvonne Nelson did it

  56. Teni

    August 2, 2013 at 1:58 pm

    Victoria Kimani and Yemi Alade look amazing <3 . And lool Chidnma is so tinyy aww

  57. Teni

    August 2, 2013 at 2:01 pm

    And my goodness, too manyyyyyy bleached skins. I had to use sunglasses to look at some of those pictures

  58. Clover

    August 2, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    I don’t blame them when they bleach. Look at all the bleached people on screen, others see this and emulate it. Funny, they look prettiest to me when they are darker.

    Back to topic: Best dressed: Yvonne Nelson, she just saved the entire show from disgrace AND I luuuuuve her figure. If she stops acting childish and learn how to keep her private life behind closed doors she could give Gen a run for her money. Other good ones: Yemi Alade, Eniola, lady in flowing black dress with elephant pix behind her, lady in short orange dress with the bow in front and white shoes. Everything else I can not applaud for.

    Men: Uti.

    The Nigerian celebrity scene needs deliverance from sorely outfitted celebrities! Gosh, where do I start: bad weaves, horrible looking shoes, tacky outfits, eyesore make-up and on and on. All of their stylists should be FIRED, well except they tell me they do not have one. In that case, GET ONE!

    August 31, 2013 at 3:22 pm
