    This is event is so UBER RAZZ! that i wonder how these jokers want to compete in the highly volatile magazine business in Nigeria.Now ,even wondering what use was it to have hired a Professor of Journalism as Editor in chief. See Backdrop,my God.I can’t wait for Emmy Collins review of this event!LOLZZ

      stop hyperventilating there, abeg. Why dont you worry about your own business (if you even have any) instead of worrying about whether Hello will make any profit. Hello is an internationally successful publication and I’m sure they thought things through before they decided to enter the West African market

    @mr Ggajumo LOL afi gbajumo na, oje gbaju mo ishe e. I doubt you know the true meaning of razz. You see people looking well composed, simple and neat yet you call them razz.

      Your ignorance is on another level.So any man talking to a girl, is assumed to be chatting her up?

      I agree with you. The camera caught him at the most inopportune time.

    The truth of the matter is that online blogs have killed the market for such glossy mags. Besides serving as catalogues for tailors and seamstresses, there is precious little else that they bring to the table that is not already being provided by blogs. Very few of the flashy ones we see around are making any decent ROI.
    However,I wish the HELLO team, the best.

    Agbani’s head literally almost didn’t make the photo. Tall ladies need to cut heels a slack.

    @corolla and idak, it is the plain truth. Married men chat
    up girls everyday and we know many of them, including the culprit
    in question. They have already destroyed their homes with their own
    hands, not with blog comments or young lagos girls
