      unfortunately, Yes….

      Yes Ebony Life airs it every other day or twice a week, not so sure. Some episodes are actually ok, but Tracy still needs to work on it and infuse something different into her show, it gets a bit predictable sometimes, like you already know what’s going to happen and how it’s going to play out and you go; ehhhhn, I’ll just watch something else…
      But then I get the feeling that she’s targeting and catering to a specific audience so, whatever werks for her…

    ok Traciee…Firstly, I must commend your hustle and drive..its Amazeballs. But I love to criticize albeit constructively! I want to seriously take this show seriously and spend my time to watch it but just have not! I start and then loose interest!You know your shoot will be somewhere and I am sure you knew it would be in the ;ikeja’ but you still need validation for where ur shoot’s at, the other stylists IAMISIGO or whatever, you prolly know how that is pronounced but then again, she has to confirm that…..Feels like that happens cause you dont know whats next up…perphaps that would have been an opportunity to tell your viewers what to expect in the show or this episode….the scene of the shoot focused too much on what the artistes were trying to achieve instead of the actual aim of the episode. The other stylist that was styling Praiz, you did not get much out of him…I just enjoyed the flow of events but didnt still didnt get what it takes to be a stylist…there’s a lot more example a stylist will usually talk to their clients to understand their needs, how do they source the apparels amongst other……On styling, .If I was to style you, I will go bold…in colours and cuts..all this playing wearing all black and then a pop of colour in shoes etc is nice but basic… But welldone hunny kip pushing…thing is, you will either grow on people or make such a drastic change with the show etc that people will keep asking where you at!

      What she said! (PS why wear a short skirt if you can’t rock it? Who ‘”Styled” you?)

    What is the point of this show? Her accent is so fake, the filming is very poor and the scenes are all over the place… Complete waste of time…

    I think I get what she’s trying to do, but execution wasn’t good. Everything looks disorganized. A basic threshold of seriousness was lacken. Some of her mannerisms were just not TV-appropriate but would be totally fine if she were merely gisting with friends off camera. The yeye thigh-slapping-type laughs was annoying. I also don’t like how she comes across as unsure of herself, saying things like “ah lemme get out of the way”, asking how to pronounce IKeja- that one left me speechless. I mean COME ON. Me? I was born and grew up in a yoruba state (not Lagos), didn’t grow up in Lagos, left naija in my teens for the US many years ago and even I can still pronounce IKeja – IKEH-JAH. Wetin be Ikey-jar? With the way your naija accent comes through, that nonsense came across as #FAKE.

    Do ya thang tho, at least you tried and made an effort.

    The show needs some spicing up…a bit boring.

    Like seriously Tracy…..i love u and ur show but u really need to step up ur game due to viewers criticism and complains

  12. illare

    , i would give constructive criticisms . First i think the concept of the show is great but the execution is poor and they have gone out of line with the vision. I dont think the show should be about her. I have watched three episodes half way because it doesn’t just hold my attention.
    First if you want to talk about been a stylist which i think was he main idea of the show, she should have met up with swanky Jerry, IAMISIO ( i hope i got that well) , veronica odeka first outside the work situation, ask questions on how to break into styling, is a course required, types of styling, what makes a great stylist, internship etc. I think they would be more than glad to offer that info .The part of going on set should happen after they have chatted, in fact she should have gone with em from the selection to the shoot.
    In my opinion , i think this show has more than enough celebs to go for .2 seasons. I Thought the show was gonna be showing us the viewers the life or a typical day or week in the life of a celeb. E.g. Tiwa salvage from meetings with her stylist, to selection of her dancers, of course fashion which she can invite tiwas stylist , just like that.
    she better go back to the drawing board and re-strategise, i respect your grind and hustle but girl you need to get your act together. i hope someone gets the constructive criticisms here to her. am out.

    it just really upsets me that in Lagos (maybe even Nigeria) there isn’t one young presenter that has an authentic nigerian accent or isn’t trying to put on another country’s accent. I understand you went to school abroad etc, but while all these presenters were abroad, they hung out with Nigerians, kept up with Nigerian music/movies etc, came back home during holidays and I know for a fact their parents/ some family members too have Nigerian accents. Why is it so impossible to speak without an accent on TV in Nigeria, I don’t get it. It’s not even about doing shakara, it’s about appealing to the domestic country because there’s no way an American is gonna be tuning in to nigerian reality access with Tracy Nwapa (not just yet at least) with this american accent (they have the legit in their land already..why go to Africa to hear an american accent)..

    Thats why Bonang Matheba is so big in South Africa, she is authentic and true to her South African roots… SO, to all CURRENT AND FUTURE presenters, try and adjust your accents please, and I don’t mean switching from american to pigeon to british to pigeon again like tracy did here (no offence to her but its really not cool) .. stick to one! IF it means you practice in front of a mirror every day then do so.. I promise you will gain more fans and subscribers that way.

    Have a great day all, I hope I didn’t offend anyone with my opinion. xx

      gbam. south africans are the realest though, no forming, they appreciate their accent and culture. leave it to a nigerian to show off or “get smart”.

      You should definitely watch Battabox on YouTube, absolutely no forming of any kind.

    Kudos to Tracy but pls put in more time in PRE-PRODUCTION. Have a plan for scenes, timeline, nut graph and conclusion of your show. There was a time you came on the screen and said we should watch out for LFA’s store opening, when we had already seen that scene minutes before. Who is doing your editing? There are so many things that didn’t need to go in your final clip.(example: the Cameraman man was informing someone of his hand in the shot. that should have been chopped off, or at least mute the audio and put a quick dissolve) Your cameraman? maybe you should get two cameramen, or one Cameraman and another still camera focusing on your interviewee. So many times all we were seeing was you talking and the back of the person being interviewed. Also, the lighting was off. WHITE BALANCE may be the trick. Further, you need to inform your guests/co-hosts about tv etiquette before they come on camera. We’ve seen a couple of them zone out, roll their eyes, use their phones while on camera. Lastly, PLS write some form of a SCRIPT. That will help. We get the feeling you are just freestylin’ or talking like you would to friends while chilling at home. We get you are trying to be natural but ….It’s not WERKING.

    I did not want to comment but I will. I get where the show is going but the execution is far from poor, it is bad. I read on here that they show this on national television, really? This goes to show the level of appreciation of mediocrity in Nigeria.

    The show was all over the place. Disjointed. I get the feeling that Tracy assumes that her beauty will carry her through or her connections. But this is a sad state of affairs. The companies who advertise around the time this show airs should boycott because this also reflects badly on their brand.

    How do I begin? Tracy, stick to one accent. One minute you sound Nigerian, then American, then you finish off with British. Which one is it? Also, you are dealing with an intelligent audience with an appreciation for the finer things in life so you should practice more especially what it is you are trying to convey. The beginning was a waste. We did not know what was happening. REALITY ACCESS should not be REALITY. If people wanted reality, they can look in their mirror. People watch tv because of the storyline, not the ACTUALITY of events.

    I sincerely thought this was for youtube and did not realize it was for national tv. Very sad. I do not know how to criticize constructively abeg.

    Also, the stylist styling Praiz, did he know you were filming him? Or? I thought he was the house-help initially. Do these people take cues from ACTUAL STYLISTS. Or are the stylists because there are no jobs in Nigeria?

    Sorry I didn’t like the show. But Tracy isn’t too bad too look at. Cute even if she can do w/o 10-15 lbs.

    I’m so upset. That was a total waste of 30mins. Tracy you need to quit now or put together a team that can help you script, score, edit, shoot, handle styling etc. The show lacks focus, the camera was all over the place. And please why all the name dropping?! Do you have to do that so we know you are close friends with local celebs? Bubu, Veronica and Kike you should never have agreed to this because it makes you look like confused stylists. When in fact, you are all super talented. If the show is to depict actual reality, then record your content like a vlogger. Choose a topic for each episode and stick to a storyline. I am in no way trying to knock your hustle but even Abdul would be disappointed!!!

    People need to learn that sometimes certain situations play out well in real life but when you transcribe it to film, not everything works. I’m sure you just wanted people to see how lavishly you live and how you have top stylists at your beck and call. No one really cares of how well off you are. They just want to see a woman with a vision that makes sense and more importantly they want to be entertained.

    Shout out to Lillian, Reze Bona and Obi Somto
