    Everyone looks great –

    Chioma is looking the best I’ve ever seen her, gorgggggg darlin’!
    RMD lost a lot of weight, he looks GREAT! Alas, I just wish some of his finesse could rub off on Mr. Fred Amata.
    Maybelle Boma (tall Cameroonian lady in pink) needs to stop with the weight lost, it is showing in her face in the worst way.

    Emem, I will take points for those glasses. Why are you going for that nerd look in a glamorous evening gown and hiding your eyes the one time you have the right make up and none of those your grey/blue/green contact lenses? If you had something on that was men’s wear inspired, I could understand the glasses but mbok ku nam uto mkpo odo aba, mma da eyin eyen abasi mmbenge fi o ah.

    If YouTube girls can buy closure piece to make their look natural, why can’t Nollywood actresses do the same? I am sure money is not an issue.
