Having added to her age, the magazine caught up with stunning silver screen actress Rita Dominic to dish on the past, present and her wonderful future. In her interview, Rita touches on topics like new projects and upcoming movies; but she also talks about a something we rarely catch her dishing on – her love life.

She tells the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Franka Asindi;

On Dating someone
Yes I am dating someone and I am in a a happy place. I am good, That is the farthest I can go with you on this topic (laughs)

On if he is someone ‘they’ know and if he’s in the entertainment industry
How would I know if “we” know him Franka? Sorry love, he’s not – now let me be.

We will definitely keep our ears on this one.

Next up we have cover number 3 with the fabulous Funmi Iyanda.

She was the face we woke up to on her highly syndicated show ‘the morning dawn’ on the national TV station NTA channel 10. Now Funmi Iyanda is having the time of her life running  her production company from London and Lagos.

In her interview with Funmi talks on what her life is like now, being a feminist and what she thinks of the Nigerian broadcast industry.

On being a feminist she says
I am a feminist, l like being female and would like to be allowed to be that in whatever form l chose. That’s feminism. I also like men, food, lipstick, shoes, well-tailored clothing, underwear, rap music, Fuji. Music and Tarantino films.

On advice for and on the new broadcasting approach in Nigeria
To give a few helpful tips on presenting; I would need a full semesters course schedule for that l’m afraid. For now, let’s just agree that regarding presenting, can people stop talking in those infernal pseudo American accents? It’s rather sad and utterly crass.

And then there’s Ice Prince!

Ice Prince has been taking Africa and the world by storm with his fast lyrics and his suave style. In an interview with Ayodeji Rotinwa, the rapper talks on the man behind the lyrics.

    Is that her definition of feminism?

    • Ms Geeky 30

      August 29, 2014 at 7:32 pm

      Yes, it is. It is not all feminism is about but it is a part of feminism. For females to be allowed to be without the infernal judgements from all and sundry

    Yes, she is dating someone here in the States…

    Funmi is looking beautiful on that cover! And the others too. Rita if you are happy, we are happy for you too.

      I agree! I absolutely love that cover with the makeup and photography. Notice how you can still see her skin texture, notice her pores and that bend at the right side of her nose. They did not try to photoshop all her features out, and the makeup was just brilliant.

    Funmi Iyanda’s makeup looks lovely and I completely agree with her on the pseudo American accents. It has unfortunately become a pervasive phenomenon in today’s Nigerian culture.

    rita, nice nose job


    August 29, 2014 at 7:54 pm

    Fumi’s Nose job looks so natural and suits her.

      It really does. I thought I was the only one who noticed the difference. Same thing with that ikechukwu’a ex (Sarah ofili), hers is abit noticeable. But none of these blogs have noticed. lol . Good on them, they didn’t like it, they changed it.

    Urban decadence – what is happening? Was the theme “ape transformation”? Why make those beautiful girls look absolutely horrible? Unbelievable. The blue abi na purple shadow on the black girl makes her look like she was beaten up

    Has anyone ever seen Rita’s natural hair at all? All that money and she keeps rocking the most unrealistic looking wigs in the game.

    Funmi Said…’…For now, let’s just agree that regarding presenting, can people stop talking in those infernal pseudo American accents? It’s rather sad and utterly crass……’

    Nuff said!

    I like me some Ice Prince Zamani. I am adopting him as my younger brother. It is official. I’m serious! I look out for him anywhere he is – he has my word. 🙂
