Battle of the Pouts! Toke Makinwa, Beverly Osu, Annie Idibia, Banky W & More – Who Takes the Crown?




Thank God It’s Friday! 

Hey BellaNaijarians, I really hope you’re having a fab day and if by the slightest chance, you aren’t, we’re always here to cheer you up. Today, while I was doing my hourly daily ‘stalk’ through our favourite celebrities’ Instagram pages, I’ve realized that this thing called ‘pouting’ aka the duck face really hasn’t gone out of style. And, it’s not just the beautiful ladies, it’s the guys too. You don’t believe me? Check out the photos below.

Introducing... the queen of the pouts

pout. pout. pout. pout

Some have mastered the art of the 'almost-pout'

Some have mastered the art of the ‘I’m about to pout’

While others have mastered the 'subtle pout'

What? Toke isn’t pouting?

Well, Beverly Naya is…

And sometimes… pouting is just…

We hope we gave you a reason to pout smile. Have a fabulous weekend!

      Miss . missy, get your life together already !..we know people like you, I don’t need to know you before I know your life ain’t any better than this Toke girl you stay dissing.. like would you die if you don’t hate on her ??…you go to church rt ?.if you actually do, it would be heartbreaking cos you have clearly forgotten the whole fundamental of the gospel goes down to God is love, and since God is love, you don’t come on here to spite people..Think about it and plz ussshhh your mouth if you ain’t gonna say anything good or criticise constructively (of cos if need be). Bye !

    • CHINNY

      August 2, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    Annie idibia needs to quit the pouting, it doesn’t do her any justice.

  18. Mwechi

    Must be a boring day in the BellaNaija office. People are out there changing the world and here’s what you’re doing. Life has got to suck!!!

    • Joan

      August 2, 2013 at 2:06 pm

      Yes hun!!! Life must really suck for the BN team, that’s why by the end of this month they’ll go home with nice paychecks thanks to your continuous stream of comments here. I tell you, life sucks! 🙂

    • Madman

      August 2, 2013 at 4:08 pm

      How much will they take home. I’m sure, I can pay their salaries with my shopping allowance.

    • AA

      August 2, 2013 at 2:09 pm

      No, you suck for this unnecessary statement

    • Iris

      August 2, 2013 at 10:38 pm

      But..Madman…why are you here reading Bella Naija instead of changing the world? *scratches head in confusion* plus when Glo wants to advertise and they’re looking for businesses to sponsor (indirectly cutting paychecks) your contribution to the comment list will cinch the deal for BN, no?

    Cool……couldnt stop laughing and why is @madman always sounding pained in his comments.just saying

    • Madman

      August 2, 2013 at 4:07 pm

      Why na but I’m looking for a wife. Pained is not a good look.

  25. Pokemon .....

    August 2, 2013 at 2:00 pm

    That first image of Toke actually made me cringe. She looked like those Pokemon abi na Japanese cartoon character. or a mild form of ET. Choi, I almost thought it was a painted image and not a real picture. Small small biko. @yup a.k.a. Toke or her PR cronies, feel freee to voltron. The truth is not always palatable

    • Titu

      August 2, 2013 at 3:13 pm

      I really hate to have to consider discussing about Missy and the kinda comments she drops about [email protected] Yup has helped a little out, with what he/she wrote anyway. But back to why I’m replying you, you said the truth is not always palatable, yes I agree. In fact, if the truth isn’t bitter then it wouldn’t really be considered as being the truth. However, there is no element/atom/sense of truth in what Missy wrote down. She is just being bitter !

  26. Suyacrush

    August 2, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    Some of them look like Wendy Williams! Indeed pouting is not for everyone…tsk tsk

  27. jinkelele

    August 2, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    now its funny posts from social media like this Onos should do, no be all those strip clubs. This pouting is hilarious all lined up like this

  28. Udegbunam Chuwkudi

    August 2, 2013 at 2:10 pm

    Toke’s pout no get contest! That’s some major fierce attitude in the first pic. Werk it gurl! lol

  29. lol

    August 2, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    I think there is a difference between a pout and a kissy face.

    • Radiant

      August 2, 2013 at 2:42 pm

      🙂 Gee, thanks. I agree with you. I kept thinking something wasn’t quite together.

      Its really a fun post, BN.

  41. Cool cat

    August 2, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    The hidden truth about pouting is that it simply hides age lines. When you smile, all the crows feet around the eyes and droopiness is on full display, pouting kind of fixes all that and highlights the cheekbones = beautiful structured face. Dassall

  42. Blesson

    August 2, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    Check out my own pouting too nah…. got sexy pout oh, but i love my smiles more.. *wink

  43. Lizzie

    August 2, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    • Lizzie

      August 2, 2013 at 8:18 pm

      Beverly Osu, cos Naya looked cute. Thanks Bn for the laffs…

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

    August 2, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    Well said,the only sensible comment @ Cool cat…I do it a lot…guilty as charge…I’m only against mis jai pout

  45. Aibee

    August 2, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    Miss Jaie’s pout has me laughing for days. Whoever does that girl’s make up should be flogged.
