    just how many watermarks are going to spoil the picture? nenaji media put their own, giama put theirs, bellanaija now came and put theirs, as if they took it! too many watermarks spoil a good pic. pics are clear enough, am sure it cos of all d signature dt people are complaining about the clarity. I love the white background on the stage.

    Nice photos. Lol @ Ramsey Noah taking a chopper from Sugar Land airport to Stafford (a 10 mins car drive). Then taking a “chauffeured” car to the Stafford Center (even shorter ride). LMAO Nigerians!!!!

      And just in case you did not read this part here it is again
      “The helicopter was scheduled to land on the red carpet, but due to safety and permit issues in the last hour, they had to land across the street from the venue.”
      Obviously the chopper ride had been paid for and had to be utilized I bet you would be singing a different tune if some Oyibo actor pulled the same stunt but because it is a Nigerian you have issues with it and just in case you did not read this part he was meant to have a James Bond like entrance hence the chopper.

    • Wow

      October 28, 2013 at 8:35 pm

      emm, hope your day has got better? ’cause you’re obviously having a bad day. Did you not read my “lol”. Don’t have a problem with it. Just find it very funny that a chopper is being used for a 10min car ride. My opinion; you don’t have to like it!!!

      THAT IS WHY COLONIALISM WAS SO SUCCESSFUL – MANY BLACK PEOPLE DO NOT THINK MUCH OF THEMSELVES [or their own], BUT GLORIFY ANY OTHER RACE…and the fairer the race, the more stupid those Africans get!

    themanecaptain.blogspot.ca

    • Otito

      October 29, 2013 at 10:22 pm

      Helicopter plus rented car ‘2014 S Class Mercedes’ = $150; You can always tell when a poor man is writing something; because they have no clue of what’s going on in the real world……

    If you have anything negative to say, it’s because 1. You jealous cause you missed a great show 2. You jealous cause you not as fabulous as half of the guests here 3. You jealous cause you didn’t fly in the copter with Ramsey 4. You jealous cause Alex actually won an award…WORK ON YOUR U.S VISA, GET A LIFE and GIVE CUDDOS TO PEOPLE MAKING WAVES!

    • Remember My Name!

      October 29, 2013 at 8:14 am

      This one will not pass “Shoboikis” Handwork!
      It’s because you managed to reside in that scotching Texas and probably have some sort of connection with those ratchet Golden Icons coordinations abi? smh…..please have several seats!

  22. Viva

    October 29, 2013 at 5:29 am

    So if anyone that wins has acted in a film produced by Emem Isong, its an ‘Emem Isong’ bought award? Amazing! Maybe if you quit pointing fingers and worked hard at your craft, instead of resorting to jealous jabs, maybe one day, you too will be recognized.

    It was a great event..not as celebrity-packed as last year
    though but still a wonderful event. Yvonne Nelson is vain o..that
    chic loves to take pics of herself so much so that she forgets the
    fans exist. But I don’t blame her sha..I tend to be vain too..lol
    especially when I know I’m looking FAB!!! 😉

    Yes! Let us go to Texas and do our Award because our Airport is smelling of Piss and escalator is permanently Jammed. Not to mention that NEPA has spoilt our central A/C . rubbish!!
