      Oh dear ….hyping a tortoise doesn’t mean it runs.
      Desperation and Kim k vibes can only take you this far.

      @Bukky, u must be one of dem paid commenters i’m talking about. Payed to attack people who refuse to gobble down whatever is forced on them. Retire the word ‘hater ‘ and engage ur brain for once, maybe then will u see the light. Gullible lamb.

    How to kiss? How to love? Lord I thank You that I don’t need to ask google to teach me those two.
    I’m a bit surprised by some of the searches, didnt know Nigerians were interested in certain things like the royal baby and even the Pope. Good to know.

    I said it! Omotola pays ppl to comment on articles about her, and is def buying up them awards n recognition cos there aint no reason why she doesnt even appear on these lists year in year out yet she has been winning awards like water. Infact I’m sure she also bought her fcbk followers as well cos obviously there aint nobody checking for that. Haha. Truth is if ppl love u they’ll search for u often. Madam beyonce who omotola is fighting to be like is still the most searched celeb in yankee so why is ours different over here. lol. The truth shall surface some day. We dey wait

    ehm, if they don’t google about a celeb too much won’t it be because she’s steadily in the news so people already know what they want to…

    • UOO

      December 17, 2013 at 8:30 pm

      Pls explain why Rita Dominic, Mercy Johnson, Jim Iyke, and Tonto Dike made the list then cos they sure r in d news all the time. Wizkid, Psquare, Dbanj, Iyanya n Ice prince also made the list yet they are what the blogs are made of. Stop living in denial and accept its all fake hype surrounding that celeb ur trying to defend cos truth is that d more popular u get d more u r googled. so quit it my dear.
