Mona is cashing in!

Nollywood star Monalisa Chinda was officially unveiled as an ambassador for the Nigeria 100 Centenary Project, an intercontinental road show set to hold across the world.

The press conference took place at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Ever the stylish Nollywood diva, Monalisa looked pretty in a colourful outfit.

She styled the ensemble which features an Ankara bodice, lace sleeves and peplum detail, as well as a bright red velvet skirt, with silver drop earrings, a gold ring, gold wrist watch and a pair of silver heels.

Soft wavy locks and luscious pink lipstick finished the look.

According to the project director Ikemefuna Mordi, Monalisa was chosen because “as a multi-talented superstar who keeps contributing her quota to the emergence of a new Nigeria by supporting and spearheading diverse noteworthy and noble causes, Monalisa Chinda easily represents the true Nigerian picture we seek to project.”

Music star Iyanya as well as Stephanie Linus, Segun Arinze, Desmond Elliot, Jay Jay Okocha, Kanu Nwankwo, RMD and Ali Nuhu, have also been unveiled as ambassadors of the project.

    What is all this crass, what is there to celebrate in Nigeria being 100, is it that the life of her citizens are better now than 50 years ago, no good roads, no stable electricity no public water supply,no good schools, no good hospitals, corrupt politicians, armed robberies and kidnapping, boko haram, MEND, oil theft and debunkery, the list of the ills in Nigeria is greater than that of Sodom,Gommorah,Nineveh and Babylon all combined and multiplied by 1000,yet thet have the temerity to choose some fellows to represent the the stupid and backward country in their ill conceived planned celebration.
    As i said there is something wrong with black people, melanin must be getting into Nigerians brain cells.Nonesense.

    Honestly, I ve been screaming on top of my lungs for the past 20 years that the country is moving in a dangerous trend towards the apocalypse and I,m afraid the end may have just come for Nigeria.

    This centenary celebration should have come with a celebration of of uninterrupted power supply…..and many more milestones.

    Now, these ambassadors, what is their goal? just to smile for the cameras and get the cash?? I’m sorry, that’s not my understanding of an ambassadorial position.

    Ambassadors are supposed to be the drivers of “making things better and making better things”. So if none of them is doing that, and everybody thinks that some other person has that responsibility and not them, what the hell are we celebrating?

    I love Monalisa, and I see the dress and the skin, but that’s not all there is to your new job, (Yes, its a job). So, please, do your job!!…….or maybe we need more outspoken people like Stella Damasus as ambassador, at least, judging from her recent video………

    Fellow Nigerians welcome to the dooms day, just saw in Shara report pictures of pat jonah sponsored 3 million man march just like the Abacha days but this time the security agents are involved in the march/rally.Nigeria is now facing a crisis of apocalyptic proportion and this may just be the end of Nigeria as we know it.
    For those charlattans that like to pose as ambassadors and show off their new found wealth,very soon there will be no hiding place for them and their money.
