    Did she decide she wants make up or to look like a clown? This is an obscene amount of make up to put on a child, they should have let her play with a little blush and lip gloss.

    I know its ur child and people shouldn’t tell u how to raise ur child but ibinabo u are a bad mother for putting heavy make up on a 7 year old girl.

    this is appalling. why will a mother coat her 7 year old daughter with heavy make up. pls allow ur children to be children, allow them to enjoy their child hood. there’s enough time in their adult life to wear make up.

    dont u know there are pedophiles and yerimas every where. its legal to marry a female baby in nigeria. disgusting

    happy birthday little girl.

      This is the most foolish post I have read, she sees her mother wearing make up often and on her special day she wants to wear some as well, how dare you call her a bad mother for giving her child what she wants on her special day. Ignorant nonsense.

    Beautiful girl, Happy Birthday to her, turning 7. but sincerely, shez too young to be made to look like she is 21, she has so much time God willing to look like this, even way better. but the very strong RED lipstick, mascara and lined eyes all 4 a 7 year old? beautiful girl no doubt, but call me old fashioned, this look is way tooo mature for a 7 year old.

      My dear, my sentiments exactly, there is make up and then there is MAKE UP. she is 7, as a mother its your hand that decides which of the two is good for her, kids don’t know any better . A little lip gloss here and rosy cheeks there she would have been happy, this is not the hand of a 7 year old requesting make up o!

    January 29, 2015 at 12:53 pm

    Ahn Ahn!
    Guys calm down …. Am sure the mum doesn’t wear her makeup on a daily basis! A little girl is allowed to play “dress up” pls!

    She looks beautiful by the way and Happy Birthday 🙂

    I know everyone has gone off on the make up ish and I would like to add my disapproval too. Children are naturally beautiful without makeup and I can’t imagine what a child would think of their natural look when they grow up wearing make up all ther life or even for occasions (terribly wrong). A child can ask for make up but that doesn’t mean you would allow the child wear it, cos she is a child and her sense of judgment cannot be held against her. People are allowed to make their own decisions when they are 18, common sense tells you it’s cos you begin to think like an adult at that age and become responsible for your actions. For whatever reason Ibinabo, this is very appalling and you would say “I don’t care what anyone thinks or say” but think of your daughter and the natural beauty you have covered with that hideous makeup. 7 years old, OMG! Some people should use their heads Na…

      @bursani. its your son’s 7th birthday and he wants a machine gun, I hope u will give it to him cause its his birthday.

      its not every thing ur child asks for that u give them. assuming the make up was light that would have been a different case, this is too heavy for a 7 year old, jungle red lip stick and heavy eye shadow, biko this is too much. there are some grown women who can’t even wear make up as heavy as this.

      Thank you. People should stop victimising female children. Abi they haven’t heard of sickos who rape infants and children younger than her? Growing up in Nigeria, I’ve read my fair share of such occurrences. Sickos are sickos, makeup is irrelevant. This is how our society just continues to make excuses for boys/ men and whatever irresponsible behaviour they might exhibit.

      January 29, 2015 at 7:54 pm

      That is your opinion though. The little girl wanted a made up face, as long as she is happy with the experience, that’s really all that matters. It’s just one day, the sky will not fall if she has been fully done to the nines. At her age, my mum let me use makeup and it totally demystified the whole thing for me. When I was finally old enough to do it myself, it did not trip me and I didn’t go overboard. It’s being done under her mother’s guidance, so I think the little girl will be fine regardless. Besides, when she sees these photos later on when she’s grown, they’ll be a source of laughter and fun at how outrageous it might seem to her at that point. Let’s allow her enjoy her moment.

    if it was a little powder and some light coloured lip gloss and maybe some blush it would have been ok. but this Child looks like she had a full facebeat by an apprentice MUA including eyebrows on fleek carving, highlighting and contouring and that is just waaaaaay too much for a 7 year old girl. Madam Fiberesima, soon this girl will be too grown for you to have much say in her life, and when that time comes you will wish you had these days back. my point is, dont rush this child into early adulthood. she go still wear makeup tire. Till then, let her be a kid. Happy Birthday doll, im sure under all that cake on your face, you are a real beauty.

    Eya, Ibinabo, the little angel said she wanted makeup for birthday – I’m sure she also said she wanted contact lenses too. You could have asked her to make herself up – that would have looked adorable, not this mask on the poor girl’s face.

    Now the lass is ready for her 7th birthday party. Happy birthday Ewomazino.

    By the way, this young lady is 2nd Mazino I’ve heard of, the first being Smooth FM 98.1 ‘s Mazino Appeal. I wonder what the name means.

    • Mz Socially Awkward...

      January 29, 2015 at 2:18 pm

      I think it’s an Anambra name and the full name might be “Chimazino” but I’m not completely sure. A lot of names from that part of Igbo land tend to have the same prefix (such as “Chimamanda”, for example) and as to what it means, I’m not completely sure due to the difference in dialect.

      Love some of the Anambra names I’ve come to discover more recently like Munachi, Kosichukwu, Makwochukwu (is that spelt right?), Dabelechukwu… very different to what I’m used to.

    • Omo1

      January 29, 2015 at 3:18 pm

      Its not Anambra o!!!! Its an Isoko name, from Delta state and i’m not too sure of the meaning. Something about God’s goodness or so. Don’t forget she had this particular child for Fred Amata. Fred Amata is from Delta state

    • Mz Socially Awkward...

      January 29, 2015 at 6:12 pm

      @Omo1, I stand corrected. 🙂

      Was briefly acquainted with a girl called “Zino” who I assumed was Igbo… Maybe she just had a first name from elsewhere.

    • TA

      January 29, 2015 at 3:20 pm

      The article stated her full name as ‘Ewomazino’. It is an Isoko name meaning ‘goodness has come’. Smooth FM’s Mazino Appeal-Offoh is also Isoko.
      Could this be the baby Ibinabo had for Fred Amata? Because he is Isoko or so I guess

    I am a mom of two girls and I know how girls love makeup. My two year old smears my lippies on her face and stares at herself in the mirror, while exclaiming “awww” But I wouldnt even put that on social media, not to talk of a heavily facebeat picture of my daughter. I think its inappropriate to put heavy makeup on a child. She wanted it as a birthday gift, how about you make her up but exclude putting it up on social media. Your friends, family can see the pics but not the whole world. The makeup made her look older, and has therefore attracted pedophiles to her. But don’t feel too bad mommy, their beautiful smiles and warming eyes always makes us do certain things without thinking in depth about the implications.

First of all pedophiles like children with or without makeup, it’s sad you think showing your family and friends is okay but posting it on social media is silly, maybe it’s cause your not a celebrity and don’t understand the life, so stay in your little quiet life, and leave her family alone.

    IB, why didn’t u also attach a Brazilian weave on her head? The package would have been complete. Children are innocent beings. They should maintain their innocence . That’s what makes them so beautiful. Not all this outrageous makeup. A little amount of lip gloss would have been ok. What have u done to her eyebrows?!! Do u want to pimp her or what? . Don’t come complaining when she starts doing “emancipated” things. God bless this cutie and HBD to her.

    Give the mum and child a break. They are just having fun with play make-up. You have not seen the child outside her house with the make-up. And it’s as if she makes the child up everyday to go to school or go out generally. It is nothing new. Many parents oblige their daughters play make-up. It’s just a treat in the house! She only shared a picture!! And for the person that mentioned contacts, you sure are looking for anything to label them with. The sanctimony is just too much.

    Mum, it is my birthday, let me go sleep over at a boys house. After all, it is her birthday, sure let her. That is how I saw my Uncle’s wife tell the driver to take her 13yr old daughter to a boy’s house. She even gave her money, saying in case you guys want to go out and eat or something. Shey bi they are classmates. That day, I forgot that day that my aunty was waaaay older than me. The way I screamed at the girl and told her to get down from the car and back to the house that minute. Her mum tried to argue with me and I told her straight, a teenager, going to a boy’s house unsupervised. Does that make sense? You are her Mum NOT her friend. When this girl comes home pregnant, your eyes will clear. I could see the shame on her face, when my words sunk in. Baby girl is 19 now and in school in the UK. I see her pictures on Instagram and shudder. Product of bad parenting. All the terrible mothers are coming out now, and calling people sanctimonious, and sadly our children will have to interact with yours, and if her friends see this and ask their own mums tomorrow and get no, Mummy will now be the enemy. Yes little girls always want to be like grown women, fact of life, but that is where mothering comes in. Sorry darling, you are way to young. here, have some lip gloss, you are so beautiful, you don’t need make up, not at this age. makeup is for grown ups darling. Anything. You even took the picture and put on social media, so that people will say what. How pretty your under age child is. Wait, this woman has how many children for how many men again. Therein lies your answer. Her moral compass, odikwa wonky

      I hope you are a virgin yourself, because if you are doing kerewa the only difference between you and Ibinabo is that you don’t have, or yet have the evidence of kids. I mean if we want to get real holier than thou with it, that is the only basis upon which you can cast aspersions on her mother’s moral compass. So check yourself and make sure your own side is in order and when you have kids, bring them up as you see fit.

      How does red lippy on a 7 year old put on by her mother to celebrate her birthday equate to child prostitution you obviously have in your family. What a traumatic childhood you and your sister must have had. See how others people’s joy can rekindle feelings of insecurity and bad parenting you experienced as a child. Sorry oh. Not all families are like need councelling to help heal your wounds. You are sooooooo unhappy and all it took to out that in public was the pretty picture of a 7 year old enjoying her mum’s attention on her birthday. Pele.

      Okay so you have strong views. That’s fine everyone is entitled to an opinion. However you do not know this family so whatever issue you have must come from your own life experience. Perhaps you need to sort yourself out and address whatever issue you have, before trying to predict a negative future of a child u dont know from Adam. My dear who made you a guru on parenting. What works for you might not work for another. Please check yourself.

      You can’t paint everyone through your own experience. Whatever your experience was as a child. No body had the right to molest or make you feel cheap for any reason. My mother was a midwife in her day. She had 5 of use 1 girl and 4 boys. I was treated as a princess. I have pics with me in full blown makeup. She use to let me have her old make up. All that did for me is get used to makeup. I don’t makeup to impress men I do it for myself. To day I am happily married good job fantastic kids. 2 girls one is a princess the other a tom boy. I empower my kids. What gives you the right to try and under mind this mother. I am truly disgusted at your rant. I have never hated a person as much as I dislike you.

    How can ya’all call her a bad mother for ds? Cos she posted a pic of her daughter wt heavy makeup online, she’s now a bad mother?? I see nothing wrong ds, northerners make up dia kids wt kajal n all on a daily basis n from wat ibinabo said it’s just a one time tin. I bet she’s a better mother than most of u judging, and sum of u saying she’s exposing d dota to pedophiles,guess der will rape her via picture.

      oh please, it’s usually the ones who have been straight jacketed and heavily ‘policed’ by their parents that turn out not so great. The term ‘omo pastor’ is not coined for nothing. When it is your child, do what you think is right, but Ibinabo is not a bad mother for giving the girl this experience. For you to even suggest that kind of future for that little girl based off a one off makeup day is shocking and unacceptable. There is no hard and fast rule to parenting, everyone has their style.

    Choi, see angels and teachers in flocks. Some of u way dey lambast probably started phucking at 14 or younger. Some of u dey vex cuz your own parents didnt bond with you or they would have beaten you purple and ash for making any requests .

    To the agboro comparing machine guns to makeup, nna your own don finish. That is the stupidest comment ever and I hope I can forgive yourself in the future for giving such a horrendous example.

    I hope una no go commit suicide over this ooo cuz the way some of you responded shows that yall have deep rooted issues. Make una rant and teach all you want but remember, you own problem still dey wait for you at home, school and so on. Make una face your work oooo limbo.

    Unless this was for a dance recital or something; I agree the makeup is not necessary for such a young child.

    Ib you are a GREAT mother, better than most of the women here forming holy, that you have single handedly nurtured 5 children with love given the circumstances, striving hard to give them the best and on the top of it still working hard. You are great. You are also great because while all these hypocrites here shoutin a little lippie here, a little blush here, because it is normal, you have simply dressed your daughter up in red lipsticks that little girls know. It’s dress up, it’s make up and it doesn’t mean you do not have your child under control. See them all like wolves frustrated probably in marriage the main thing that can destroy a child, pretending to keep homes come to attack you because they think you are less than a mother because u have birthed children as a single mother, the funny thing is fast fwd a few years, it is the children of these types that will be the ones spoiling other children and giving them headache. We know them, they become adults like you. F..king JUDGEMENTAL HYPOCRITICAL Nigerians. Happy birthday Ewomazino, shine bright like a diamond beautiful baby and make your mama proud always. God bless you

      it is quite hilarious that you think the only person that can pass criticism on this picture must be sad people with broken marriages. Amazing how Nigerians think. Everyone must be sad, lonely, and what else did you say. My mother is in her 60’s now, still married and has raised 4 amazingly successful children, who have gone on to have successful marriages too (touch wood) and she would come down hard on IB with this picture. She doesn’t fit your wolves in sad marriages. I wouldn’t dare take a picture like this on my daughter’s birthday and send it to my mum. My ears will fill up that day. I doubt the father of this child even gave approval of this, or would support this. What is wrong is wrong please. Wolves frustrated in marriage!!! Ehya, are you a single mum too? Pele ehn. Stay strong, okay. When she put up this picture, she should have expected backlash. Several seats, biko. By her 8th birthday, she will put her up in a revealing bikini and upload it too and you will come out and say “dress up”. If her daughter turns out like her in the future, with 6 kids and 6 dads, I guess you would be happy for her right, since her mother is strong and all., so it wouldn’t be a bad thing eh. Please add that to your birthday wish, why don’t you. After all, you just said other people’s children will be the ones who will grow up as headaches, just because they pointed out what is right. Tomorrow, the topic will be over sexualisation of children (which is a real thing by the way), and people like you will call it “dress up”. You are a friend, I guess. While you come out in public to support her, i hope you speak to her in private and advise against such in the future. What is that African proverb again “it takes a community to raise a child”

      Biko answer these questions. How many fathers do Ibinabos children have? Should we be surprised if one of her female children gets pregnant at 14?

      January 30, 2015 at 4:22 pm

      Ehyaaaaa Ibinabo, it’s okay nne eh isawwwwwwright. You can defend yourself biko, I can understand. Just please next time, keep your family to yourself. If you don’t want your children, husband or personal life discussed, pick a leaf from Genevieve Nnaji’s play book and don’t discuss your life. Post only pictures having to do with your work…I’m actually confused as to what you do for a living to tell the truth. You USED to be a model, then an actress, then you started Ms. Earth and now you are AGN president…does that even pay a salary or is the title the prize? Anyway, whatever you do for a living, FOCUS ON THAT and only post pictures related to just those things.

      Thank you oh. At jane public. What is tearing your pant. Is it the harsh parenting u under went or the fact that a mother can actually have fun times with their children and still have them under control. Your mother seems yo still have you under control hence the same joyless childhood uou had will be passed onto your children. Parents like you never really bond with your children. They bond with their peers and easily give into peer pressure all because they are, like you, to scared to look to their mothers for realistic guidance and advise.

    MS January Why didn”t you add nurtured 5children from different fathers, please how responsible is that. The girl is beautiful already and does not need that kind of make up for her age. Even the Oyibo we are trying to copy have age restriction for makeup. Please call a spade a spade.

    Hey guys, y’all should chill out and stop being so aggressive in your attacks on Ibinabo! A lot of us here wore makeup (or wanted to wear makeup) as kids, a lot of you here apply makeup on your kids and you’re here bashing another! I still have pictures from when I was very little, I had eye makeup and lipstick on for a bday party and I LOVED it! I wanted all the ‘big girl things’ and my mum and the help indulged me once in a while esp to parties! My aunty asks me to apply little makeup for my little cousin sometimes when she’s going for a party! The only issue here is that the makeup is too loud, esp the bright lipstick! Child models wear subtle makeup for photoshoots and all. So you guys should take a chill pill already!

    BTW, Ibinabo, pls take it easy on the lipstick, so you/she can see some to use next time…lol. Cute kid you’ve got tho

    Yes, this is her child and she can do whatever she wants BUT if she (nor you defenders) doesn’t want people making comments constructive or not then do not send pictures to blogs. She knows that she already garners attention by virtue of her career, her multiple husbands/babydaddies and that horrid car accident so anything with her name attached to it will get attention thus a ton of comments.. We wouldn’t have know it was the child’s birthday and that she was made up in clownish makeup IF THE MOTHER DIDN”T SUPPLY THE PICTURES.

    I didn’t even wear red lipstick until I was an adult and even as a grown up married woman, I don’t wear red lipsticks that often but here is a seven year old plied with it plus lip gloss to make it extra shiny.To those defending Ibinabo, what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong. This girl is a BABY, the make up was UNnecessary. She is a beautiful girl already, the makeup even appears garish on her because her features are not even mature enough to carry it. You go back at look at your pictures when you were 7, did your mother allow you to have full face make up? Nah, let’s call a spade a spade. This is the problem with the world today, people will find an excuse for every activity under the sun all in the name of “I don’t want to judge.”

      January 31, 2015 at 7:48 pm

      The problem with the world today is evil ass holes like yourself who want to force their standards on everyone. The fact that you did not see make up till u were thirty 10 years old did dat stop u jumping into bed with men or whatever the hell vice u might have. Get over yourself joor! !. This baby will have an excellent future red lippy or not. Her mamas got her. So get back into your coven.

    You all should relax and stop hating. Simply wish the child a Happy Birthday. When you were small and asked for ballon dress with cap did your mother not give you. Have your child and not make her up. Stop throwing hate unnecessarily and writing epistle of how you were trained. Happy birthday to these georgeous baby…God bless you darling.

    Is there a book on mothering/parenting that majority of people on here seem to have read?
    Is there a manual on how to raise your child?
    Because it works for A doesn’t mean it would work for B.
    Live & let live. Parent to the best of your abilities & let people do their, if they fail as parents, they would answer to their Creator.

    January 30, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    Not saying anything about the make up cuz, as stated, she wanted it for her day. My issue is with the eyebrows…at that age, I don’t think kids should be getting their eyebrows plucked and drawn or whatever. Except if her real brows were untouched and something drawn on then okay…but I really hope she didn’t go through pain…. then again, that’s the same pain kids on toddlers and tiaras go through so lemme stay on my lane.

    No unfortunately, I am not a friend, I am just a woman and human and I realize you don’t have to be another woman’s friend to say the truth and defend her. Witches like you are those that bring people down, are judgemental and will do anything to put a strong woman down, but you lose.

    @Alert my sentiments exactly. What makes Nigerians so mean in spirit and full of self righteous bullcrap. Why twist this innocent mother daughter moment into something so Ugly. What the hell is wrong with a mother indulging her daughter on her birthday. All you clicky happy finger hypocrites can’t ya ll for one second look st that child and see abmothers pride and joy. Look at the picture holistically. The little darling has her hair in childish little puffs. She has on age appropriate clothes. There is notting remotely suggestive in her pose. WHAT ARE YALL HATING FOR. Kudos to the mum. All I see is good protective parenting. Yall should g and look after your own children. The truth of the matter is dat this little Angel is damn pretty she’s got grown ass witchy aunties green with envy coming up with all kinds of idiotic reasons to try and bring her down. Yall ought to be ashamed of your wickedness. And for yall info paedophile are attracted to children period. The more vunerable the child the easier. So while yall spend time critiquing this innocent child someone might just be kiddiefiddling yours.

May Evil eyes watching your beautiful picture be covered, non of their wicked spells shall work back to sender, Amen. Damn so much venom up in here. Gosh!!!!.
