      Abi o. Bride to be in black and serious face. She doesn’t have to wear white but something fun and colourful. She should also be beaming and gushing. Bride to Be? Huh? Who died

      But the feature is not just about her pending nuptials and beside there is more to Tiwa than becoming a Mrs.

    Ugh! I hate this magazine cover. Lacks character. I’m guessing they were going for an intense look but those false lashes of hers have blocked out her eyes abeg. Love the fashion editorials!

      I absolutely disagree! She looks, strong, powerful, amazing. She looks like she has a take-no-prisoners attitude and I absolutely think it suits her. She is a woman with amazing power, and probably the biggest female musician in the country at the moment. Well done TW.

    She’s known for throwing a myriad of colors into one look. She can color block to die. Make up always seemingly excessive. Many of you have complained about her style being off (personally I like I use of colors and unconventional choices.). These are the comments that we tend to see the most on stories posted about her. This time, she went for a simple look and a black dress and still more comments. The fact one reader thought the make up was done by someone else suggests that it is much better than what people are used to getting from her. She’s not featuring in a bridal magazine. So why can’t you guys appreciate it.

    I don’t know her and I haven’t been a fan of some of her choices, but I commend her for doing her thing and not pandering to the ever-present criticism she faces. Some of her choices haven’t worked, but in these looks, I see toned down hair and make up (particularly the cover) and I don’t get the negative comments.
