On Sunday 17th November 2013, MultiChoice Nigeria celebrated its 20th anniversary at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Although the event was on the same day as Peter Okoye and Lola Omotayo‘s traditional wedding (click here to read), it was nothing short of superstars. After leaving the ceremony Uti Nwachukwu, Karen Igho, Chinedu “Aki” Ikedieze, Funke Akindele and Kate Henshaw took the red carpet at the MultiChoice event.

BellaNaija Events was live on the red carpet at the celebration. We caught movie stars, personalities and execs posing in their stylish outfits. The dress code for the night was black tie/formal traditional.

They include Eku Edewor, Gbenro Ajibade, Biola Alabi, Noble Igwe, Seyi Shay, Ayo Animashaun, Waje, Omawumi, Stephanie Coker, Ohimai Atafo, Ugonna Omeruo, Yvonne “Vixen” Ekwere and Tomi Odunsi.

Check out the photos and pick your fave red carpet look.

      shouldn’t common sense have told you both events took place on the same day???? and most likely she didn’t have time to go home and change???


      November 22, 2013 at 2:51 am

      I agree, she shoulda wore something different…..two different events, people! no one is hating on her, she looks great nevertheless!

      November 22, 2013 at 8:56 am

    Stephanie Coker is the best dressed.. Ogonna Umeruo takes 2nd place.. Waje’s suit is aiight.. There is no wow factor.. Omawunmi thighs are not flattering at all, wrong wardrobe choice.. Can’t believe an saying this Chinedu Ikedieze is the best dressed male.. In 2nd place is Gbenro Ajibade.. Worst dressed is Ann Njemaze

    hmmmmm Naija and red carpets everyday. worst dressed… Uti. why must he dress like this all the time. like wanting to commit suicide. Kate Henshaw doesnt seem to be aging. very radiant. my girl Oge Okoye…. who soever must have advised you to put on a smile on your face has done a great job. the person needs to be recognised and awarded cos these days, you are just so beautiful. not the Oge face with a frown all the time. Funke looks good too.

    Ann Njemanze there’s got to be a story behind your outfit. Didn’t really feel Waje’s and Omawumi’s outfits. Loved Kate Hensshaw’s and Eku’s as always.
    This lady has got a very interesting hairline

    There’s always something about Vixen that makes her look over-dressed or like she’s trying too hard ….. even when her attire is just basic.

    Da phuck? Omawumi’s legs
    What is wrong with Noble’s legs? His head is what it is but his pants seem to fit him in a special kind of way.
    Seyi Shay is fine as hell. I don’t like her big hair.
    I am pissed no one told me India Arie was in Nigeria!

    Waje..although you look nice in the photo..i think your pants dont fit right…your suit needs to sit well on you dear and it doesnt

    Kate: Looks very elegant.

    Omawumi: you really do need a stylist…if you have one then you need another. those thighs…damn girl..and the suit doesnt suit look stuffed. Also..allow that hair go…you have a lovely face and amazing features….gosh i wish i could make you over….so much potential there

    yvonne ekwere: you try too hard all the time and the sad thing is you look like you are trying too hard. your style is so boring…honestly.

    November 25, 2013 at 8:24 am

    Let me be an idiot and try and make fun of people on this LOVEEELLLY red carpet.
    Eku – fine girl. Needs food. (refer to Kate Henshaw’s photo).
    Biola – Gla-Ma
    Mo – Mo ni gba (I no go gree)
    Uti. Uti. Uti. e wan burst.
    Karen Igho – e go burst/fall/scatter
    Omawumi – see her k-leg (like my own, lol)
    Why all of dem plan wear adire, abi na the new trend make we sef run go wear (aunt Bella, tell us)×600.jpg

    Anyway, beautiful people all. Just beautiful. Girls and boys. Always loved Tomi Odunsi. Feel like I know her. Waje looks fine, thank you. Jenifa is cute. Seyi Shay is va-va-voom. Chai. Jodie rocks. I’ve been listening to her CD over and over this past week. She’s the Alicia of the Nigerian music scene I think – very independent, confident, deep, soulful, weird, doing her own thing, winning. I hope and pray for more of her work.

    OK, let me go now.

    someone here, in real life he’s tall but short in pictures cos of
    his poses, bleh. my girl kate is killing it as expected, go kate.

    blue sea, see nonsense. yvonne’s pose is terrible, too
