Shola Dorcas Fapson - Sophie from Shuga Naija

“They say you sweet like Shuga, oh-ay, I hear you taste like honey – Baby don’t leave me hanging!”

We started off the week right with our 1st BN #MCM, now it’s time for the 1st BN #WCW!

In case you missed it, we’re trying out this new feature where we post our crush – a man for Monday and Woman for Wednesday.

Our Woman Crush Wednesday this week is – *drumroll*  – “Sophie”! 

Real Name: Dorcas Shola Fapson

What’s She Up To?: The 23 year old actress – her birthday was a month ago on January 4 – took our screens by storm at the end of 2013 with her role as everyone’s favourite ‘runs girl’ in the MTV Base series Shuga Naija.

She acted in stage plays when she schooled in England – she has a BA Hons in Criminology. Now she’s done with school, she’s ready to take the acting world by storm!

    BellaNaija is just the best blog EVER. Yeah BOW DOWN Others. I am so crushing on Dorcas. If you are reading this Dorcas, you are the best actress I have seen on Shuga. You rock

    She was really good in shuga. But is she really 23?

    • sigh

      February 5, 2014 at 9:18 pm

      @missme, aka Miss Low Self-Esteem, can you be okay with someone being younger than you? can you let yourself accept the fact that you and everyone else will grow old? Hiss.

      What is it? Please don’t start again with your football age speculation. Are you her mother? If she says she’s 23 then she is. Please leave her alone jare.
      Back to #DSF I really loved her so much on Shuga. Honestly, she’s amazing

    • OgeAdiro

      February 6, 2014 at 3:25 am

      Lol @ football age speculation

    • Bobosteke & Lara Bian

      February 6, 2014 at 2:14 pm

      The question was not rude, disrespectful or small minded . Your responses were, however. The lady featured does looks older than 23 yrs. old. That does not mean she is not 23, which if you had taken time to read and understand, is what @missme meant.

      P.S. I know its a new year, BN, with new goals but really we know where to go when we need to see/read stuff like this. Thank you.


    February 5, 2014 at 9:09 pm

    She is indeed a beauty plus I love her skin tone!

    she’s a real beauty and quite talented too. i hope to see her more in movies. she has that “extra” factor that a lot of young and upcoming actors/actresses don’t have.

    February 5, 2014 at 10:45 pm

      Yes she is a beauty to behold and an upcoming actress but she still need to put more effort though to be the best!Love you Dorcas don’t relent, brush up your acting skill more and the sky won’t even be your limit.thanks for entertaining us on shuga Naija!!!

    Bella please i am interested in being your #WCW


    February 6, 2014 at 10:15 am

    Pretty girl, delivers her role on Shuga perfectly. I wish she would pay more attention to her legs(1st pic) and just her pretty face. Don’t get me wrong, no one is perfect but she can do better. I just don’t like the way the legs look. #ThankfullySheIsntBleaching

  31. DAMMY

    February 6, 2014 at 11:27 am

    She looks so much like Tiwa Savage….preety girl!

    Make this stop pls…… unless u’re starting a dating service, this feature n its sister MCM is just pointless in my opinion! You have a crush on jack n jill… what?

    one thing tho, SHE IS NOT 23 years old! she is waaaayyyyyyyyy OLDER!

  35. nollare

    February 6, 2014 at 2:40 pm

    I love her and she is drop dead gorgeous. Star lomo. Her acting is badass too. So natural with the way she takes her lines. Like she is too believeable. DSF please shine on and knock out those nollywood old cargos. Nollywood has no real stars ( except a few like Genny, Bimbo Akintola, Funlola, etc). Just all a bunch of mgbekes with fake ugly wigs.

    @Yeyearewa……. do you know how it feels to have a scar on some part of your body that you would normally expose but you’re confined due to the scare? I bet you don’t. The girl’s leg (feet) looks like she has had some scarring, but instead of hiding, she has decided to be beautifully bold by exposing them…… i’ll say that is most fantastic! she doesn’t need to pay any unnecessary attention to it.
