    … But abeg thisTiwa’s wig :

    Makes me waht to snatch it from her head -she needs to trash this wig or do something about the parting as it is too obvious that she has a wig on. Look carefully, the colour tone of the part line does not blend with hers hers all I can hear from that pic is
    “I am a wig” and as for Uche she is a verified i’m just curious about the elimination process and reasoning behind her choice to wear THAT see through top to a graduation. Abi no be school be the place?

      December 23, 2013 at 6:06 pm

      mscheeewwww…. “”I must comment””U noticed she had a wig on so what??!!!!! U just stated the obvious ,i wonder what you had on your head while typing, your natural hair??. Abeg!! shift!!!

    Pls what’s been happening to uche jumbo in recent times, she dresses as though she were confused. Funke Akindele, while I say a big Congrats to your achievement, I’ll also like to suggest that u step up ur wardrobe, u just always fall my hand, haba

    Stories that inspire. I never knew Funke had an acting school. Good for her.

    On an unrelated note, is it just me or did Bellanaija not cover the whole Iyabo Obasanjo frenzy. That is a very important social issue which is worth receiving coverage from a leading socio political fashion/lifestyle blog like yours. Sometimes Millenials need to be challenged with deeper conversations than what eye cream to use. I for one would like to air my views and I’m quite interested to know what other people think as well.

    I believe all these are rewards for her HARD WORKS and dedication to the entertainment industry against all odds. Despite the fact that she had some issues with her marital life, she stood back up, dust herself and now impacting lives and destiny. Funke, you are a mentor worth emulating. this is just the beginning of a glorious journey. Congrats dear.
