    Uti ‘s inner shirt is too small for him. Looks too tight.I’m sure it would ‘ve torn if he had to raise his hands.

    • Mz Socially Awkward...

      October 15, 2013 at 5:53 pm

      As in. I know he was going for the fitted look but the way those buttons are straining is just a big “No”.

    • Mabel

      October 16, 2013 at 3:36 am

      Nah, I think he was going for the stuffed turkey look. Every time I see him in pics I feel claustrophobic.

    • Eve82

      October 16, 2013 at 6:51 am

      Yes, He needs to go a size up on those shirts. #FauxPas

    For the boys, I have to say that Dakore’s hubby looks really well kitted out even in that simple white shirt (it looks understated and yet he still looks well put together) and Fred Amata in that berry suit is giving me grown-man swag. Love it.

    It certainly looks better than the ceremony! Big ups Bella for selecting the best pictures. How come there was none of Linda Ejiofor? Her emerald green dress was awesome.

    Denrele and him changing twice on d Redcarpet! Na wa. And
    how come Bella Naija didnt get a picture of his Louboutin gold
    boots? He came on stage to present and couldn’t stop gushing about
    how his feet were hurting. Those shoes looked fabulous but I didn’t
    get a close look. Rita Dominic was awesome, Uti irritates the
    Swarovski crystals outta me, Mildred Okwo kept abusing everyone who
    came onstage (I was sitting close to her table and I heard every
    word), and OC ukeje was the STAR of the night! Not a bad show, for
    a sophomore edition!

  36. richie

    October 21, 2013 at 9:14 am

    Monalisa aint looking good @ all joor. Tell d young woman to dress her size. Too much showing of fatty skin. Rita tried esply her hair change from “hair we go “. As 4 her dress, imo, she’d have gone 4 invisible zip. Rukky looks tacky. That dress did her no justice. Shd’ve gone 4 a better dress to accentuate her curves. She is straight like a ruler. Her hair??? Mehn that gal shd invest in a good stylist biko. Uti??? Chineke meee tell that dude to wear his shirt size and not his junior brother’s. Lollll

  37. Motun

    October 22, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    Maybe it’s me or Uti takes red carpet photos too seriouslyhttp://cdn.bellanaija.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/BN-Exclusive-Inside-the-2013-Nollywood-Movies-Awards-October-2013-BellaNaija-Exclusive030-450×600.jpg from his pose to his attitude. Just saying…

    Most people look nice. I like that many women chose shorter
    hairstyles and not the mami wata look. Desmond is really getting
    fat and the orange hair guy and Rukky always look tacky. My girls
    Rita and Dakore look nice and so do the ladies in green on the
    stage. Uche looking good from the back. Don’t really understand why
    Karen Igho is so popular and Monalisa looks the same to me in every
    picture.

  39. Bevshine event

    November 11, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    Dakore’s outfit…I love The event looks well put together
    and many good looking people Saidi and dayo look good….infant
    everyone looked nice……even Karen Ps Rita definitely deserve
    that award, her role in “the meeting” was epic. Kudos to the
    organizers and the guests.
