    Gbemi, stop it please! That black dress should have been shunned. The white and purple dresses are nice enough.

    Nigerian Entertainment Awards in NY? What the hell’s the matter with us sef?After reading Arikiye’s piece yesterday on BET ‘s sub-par treatment of African entertainers at their awards, I was almost fuming with righteous indignation on their behalf, yet we will carry our two left legs and go and host our entertainment awards in their country. As if our country is chasing us. Thank God I didn’t waste my energy vexing for BET. The inferiority complex boggles the mind, seriously.

    What in seven hells is going on with Gbemi’s black dress . It looks like what a 2 year old in an art class would do. Epic fail. Bovi looks like a bird shit all over him in that first picture.

    OMG…What in God’s name is Gbemi wearing. She looks horrid in all the pictures. The white dress is so hilarious. She looks like one of those nollywood women carrying sacrifice to the gods… #failedattemptatbeingglamorous

    Gbemi is a strong spirited woman with a zeal to achieve… I’m happy she’s hosting the NEA awards and asper the outfits, even if she wore the best outfit in the world, people will still complain..Go girl u’re pretty at heart..

    I don’t understand the hate and sheer lack of objectivity from Bella’s internet thugs …somehow professionalism is passed over for green horn ‘it-girls’ …Gbemi has been in the game for a decade and some..Her interviews with international and local figures are insightful and thought provoking but y’all like to reduce her to some dress or knocking down her hustle because you don’t like the way she looks?!
    Well,the promo shoots got you talking..look forward to watching the N.E.A with your criticisms..and really….she needs to lose weight?! really?

    They ill try to knock your hustle down but they cant break the spirit or even reach for the height you are climbing Gbemi…. Outfit or no outfit, u arr hosting one of the biggest event out of Nigeria… No other OAP has gotten to do that.

    Bad belles plenty for here o! While her choice of clothes are unflattering to her figure there are subtle ways of stating it not outright insults biko.

    Gbemi should stay away from this short weave, it’s not her best look. Only the purple dress works for me.
