    Why did they misspell her name on the cover?

    • Banni

      October 29, 2013 at 5:07 pm

      Wow magazine is always full of typos. A very sub-standard brand to say the least…Don’t they have an editor or a proof reader? And the piece about the Young Creative Nigerians 25 and under is bullshit, its not an objective piece! Bayo Oke Lawal just picked his friends. E.g how is Maki moka creative? She’s a short model who carries airs and chooses which designer to model for…so unprofessional! Wow, up your game when it comes to content or re-hire Chinkata who did a way better job!

      Lol we can tell you are angry cause you weren’t featured lol
      Abeg Bayo is killing it , have several seats hater

      you absolutely lost me when you said Makida is so unprofessional. She is not the first petite model in the world so get over that. She is also currently into acting and presenting, i believe that’s creative. I have worked with Makida at various fashion shows and she has not rejected a designer that she has been assigned to work with.
      If you weren’t referring to fashion shows or times when models are assigned to particular designers , then i don’t see any issue with choosing a client you want to work with. If you have a personal problem with Makida, come right out and say so but to rubbish her for silly reasons is just very sad of you.

      In other news, I love Dolapo and I lovee this cover but that mistake … le sigh. Hopefully, it wouldn’t happen again.

      nice catch, what a typo….hope that can be corrected before it hits the stands!

      requirement. Spelling nko? In other news, Dolapo is a stunner. I’m

      With all these perpetual ASUU strikes, I am not surprised
      with such typos on the cover of a glossy mag. We are reaping what
      we sow as a society. The one ASUU no fit cause, BBM and Twitter go
      complete am.

    Classy,stylish and elegant. This girl understands the value
    of scarcity in brand building. Correct girl!!

    October 29, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    Its funny because I have actually never seen her on tv, but
    I know about her… heart her because she seems so lovely, relaxed,
    and relatable; in a non-attention seeking way, which is really hard
    to find with us naija girls with our sassiness and gra-gra to stand
    out by force. I need to remind myself to take it easy and cool down
    sometimes, lol, because those who have mastered the art often have
    a glow about them. #gra-graNotallowed #stillLearning

    Dolapo looks gorgeous!

    Black is beautiful yet they used a picture of a white lady. Hmm

    • I agree, the “black is beautiful” picture with the white woman is very stupid. they ran out of Black women to use or what?

      October 29, 2013 at 9:15 pm

      exactly what i was thinking , doesn’t makes sense to me .Maybe that is the point i don’t know

    • Le Sigh

      October 30, 2013 at 12:15 pm

      hmmm well, I think they were referring to clothes.. not skin color.

    I love this look for dolapo. It’s so natural! Unlike the make up she wears on during moments with Mo..always too heavy. Less is more and ds is perfection!

    I AGREE WITH DUCHESS THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT A COOL CALM COLLECTED WOMAN THAT MAKES HER UBER SEXY! everything should be done with moderation and she has mastered it!

    Dolapo u fine sha!!!!Have u guys noticed that her former co-host has taken the chill pill too. Anyway with the way BN readers attack the likes of Toke,its easy to take a cue from there.

    WOW Magazine kips WOWING every frigging tym…..yea, a few typos, dat just goes to show no one s perfect. Guys, we need to develop an attitude of encouragement instead of hating all of the tym. WOW Family,,,,Kudos Guys!!!!! Bella Naija if u lyk dnt post my comment…….

    • Kamal

      October 30, 2013 at 3:46 pm

      Inside pages maybe, could be pardoned, but not acceptable on the cover page. The least they could have done was to get the cover right! I mean, she’s on the cover and they got her name wrong! NO NO!

  25. lil missy

    October 30, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    @Banni… Ezinne Chinkata ur sista,babe,mother or helper????????????cos from ur comment,sounds lyk if she dnt work…u aint gon eat!!!!!!

  26. Titi

    October 30, 2013 at 6:17 pm

    Lmaooo Abeg that Banni guy should shut up Jo , go and encourage chinkata to work on Genevieve and stop making unnecessary noise . Since the bayo guy started I’ve been buying wow and it looks amazing t. He isn’t the editor so typos like this shouldn’t be on his head or am I wrong ? Styling and fashion editing don’t include those kinda details

    Sometimes the graphic artist/designer can actually be the one to create that blunder while trying to design the cover. In my case I work for a magazine as the editor in chief and a spelling mistake was made after the graphic artist and publisher decided to re-edit the cover without my knowledge, so it was when it came out in print I saw the blunder. Sometimes you can’t know the story behind every cover.
