    i heard she was extremely rude to nigerian journalists.

    Dolapo oni, no camel toe. How??? I am so jealux

    Dabota’s dress looks so cheap and the shoes too big. Very ratchet looking

    The guiseppe shoes looks so clunky and fake, if you have to wear short shorts, your guns must be on point otherwise..cellulite

    Except you have the loveliest feet, please stay away from strappy sandals. Note to tarmar

    Otherwise a classy event from the looks of it and weldone to oluchi.

    Forgot to mention. I am officially an eku haturrr. The girl is too fine, henceforth I will abuse every pic I see ofher. What is it? Lol

    OK I hate to make mean comments about people’s pictures.

    Beht,

    Ladies, please say no to camel toe. Please, abeg, just say no. Spot the at least two egregious examples above.

    Something isnt quite right with those thighs.Is it a case of bad photo editing or maybe she just has big boils on her thighs?

    I don’t know the Nasreen Karim lady, but she sure does stand out among the pack. Eku looks effortlessly beautiful as well…

    Bella how come u guys aren’t talking about oluchi’s rude
    behavior on her premiere night? Including the fact that she was
    making ridiculous stereotypical comments about “these africans”. I
    get that y’all might be her friend cos u people are basically the
    only ones that promote her….but keep it balanced and fair! Don’t
    start all this u people’s partiality toward ur popular/rich friends
    o. Oluchi had the nerve to be so condescending forgetting her
    ojuelegba bread selling humble beginnings.

    • Nkem

      November 16, 2013 at 5:32 pm

      LOL! Stop with the hating! Half the people invited that night are corporate people! She wasn’t RUDE! You are just bitter and angry she didn’t want to be asked irrelevant questions. Watch the show so when next you meet her you know what to ask.

    So it is a PARTY. why do they want to interview her at a
    party. She can not be accessible to any one she does not want to be
    accessible to. She is who she is love and take her as she
    is.

  20. Keepingitreal

    November 15, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    Pynk, I agree with you. Felt the leggings was
    inappropriate.

    Nice event but omg that girl with the red hair is Bolanle
    Kokomansion!!? I watched the show..she has transformed o love the
    hair cut and colour. The LV bag doesn’t look fake @NaMeJare you
    piple can insult these celebs too much! Gosh I’m still surprised
    she’s the girl that won kokomansion! I’ve watched her on tinsel and
    she sure looked familiar! Please bellanaija need to interview heror
    something let’s know whether she’s still dating dbanj lol

    Looking forward to Sunday. It was too good. I love the
    show. Oluchi is trying.

  23. Modella

    November 16, 2013 at 11:50 am

    Eku stole the show..effortless!

  24. Zini

    November 16, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    Before you go off sayg oluchi was rude to journalists, do
    find out the frustrations she experienced while trying to get the
    show rolling.

  25. Amaka

    November 16, 2013 at 3:21 pm

    @Bellayankee, I appreciate your comment.
    Some Nigerian men are not fit and don’t have healthy lifestyles!
    Please let’s stay healthy and show our body some good loving!!

    As a corporate rep present at the party, oluchi was not rude in any way. Not wanting to have a one on one interview does not mean she is rude. Journalist had an open Q&A session. You should have just asked her the questions instead of demanding a one on one. Be fair to her. That she look young does not mean she is a child. Respect her and she will respect you. It was a party of acknowledgment for the sponsor so be fair.

    The girls are so old and can never make it to any agency in new york.The reviews are very bad.Oluchi needs to go back to her igbotic accents no be by force to speak americana.Ojy Okpe is more classy she would have done a better job.As for wunmi,was she not a finalist 7 years ago at Nigeria’s next top super model ? That babe si over 30 and the other Nigerian girl was face of Africa girl 2004 9 years ago.My God these girls are over 30 naw.They no longer model.It a shame that so many young girls that attended the casting were not picked and se picked girls who did not cast Nigeria arangee country.And for bella hope you are not turning to some bloggers we know that will write anything after collecting money.
