Updated: Emma Nyra Lashes Out at Noble Igwe for Saying She Needs Help with her Style in 2015



Emma NyraNoble Igwe got quite the reaction from Triple MG music act Emma Nyra when he shared a list of female artists who need help with their style in 2015 and her name was on the list.

Emma Nyra immediately used Twitter to call him out on not having support of positivity towards female artists.

Read her tweets:


What do you think?

Noble Igwe responded to her tweets with proof of his support for her work:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

    Bottom line Ms Nyra your style is WACK fix it. Nothing to do with anything else. That hotpants/shorts combo you wore once was horrendous with the c a m e l t o e

    BN, this your report is 1 sided biko. You should have reported the full conversation. Noble sent her her 9 links from his website supporting her, yet she’s claiming 0 support! Female artistes love to form victims, yet when they choose to go naked and stir up controversy, they refuse to listen to our advise/support.

    I think she’s very unintelligent and talking off point. And yes, her style needs work.

    I think Lami Phillips needs to work on her style too, but you should not refer to her cellulite, even though you’re trying to talk like “oh we all know about cellulite”.
    Talk about the clothes.
    You wouldn’t understand how it might hurt them.
    Men a tougher and will brush comments like this aside most times, but women get this a 1000 times more.
    I’m tired of these so-called metrosexual men

    Man, this Emma Nyra girl is a classic girl of beauty without brains. Her tweet rants are completely off-point. Like, what the hell? Work on your style, girl. What’s difficult to understand in that?

    The sad thing, Emma, is that I just checked out his list and I agreed with everything he said. I hear Tania Omotayo is your stylist? My dear, fire her immediately

    Noble Igwe wat ever spirit, drugs or higher realm u are tapping into dat made u make such outstandingly mature reply please kip it up. Madam Emma nobody is gonna support trash just because u are a woman learn from ur fellow female artist that exudes class, Chidinma is one of them, she might not be as well publicized and marketed like some of u but she’s in a “class” of her own, her train might be slow but it’s undeniably steady

      LMAO i love how you started this comment! I thought u were coming for Noble, but u switched it up. I agree with u totally!

      January 14, 2015 at 7:37 am

      Chidinma needs a stylist too and does not dress classy. She’s a pretty girl for sure

    I think she felt offended because they know each other personally. She might have ignored it if it was just another write up from some random person. I recall he had a similar misunderstanding with Rita Dominic a few years back. It will be hard for him to draw a line btw his friendships and doing his job.
    I don’t like her fashion sense but it’s never easy reading negative stuff about yourself. Even noble gets ticked off when people won’t stop about his head or accent.

      Also just like bella naija, he doesn’t actually write all posts. I’m assuming they expect him to tell staff to delete any post that mentions his friends or give his staff a list of friends not to mention

    Uncle Noble your are very correct&i give you a thumb [email protected] female cele especial in our music industry should plz differenciate a social events outfit from swimming bikinis,what’s special in those giddle pants in a lace dresses,nipples fluntings,back bared to their waist-lines?like seriously Lady Emma Nyra you need a stylist a good1 for that tnx. Advise no be curse oooooo.

    It’s so easy to bring people down on social media. What is Noble Igwe’s own? Doesn’t he have other things to gocus on, like, growing some height, or growing some hair on his huge bald spot? So unnecessary, the things one reads here. He could just hint her next time he saw her, since they supposedly know eachother, not call her out on social media then go back to bash her in defence of himself. smh,

    She should take thousand of several seats ……….. GEEZ. Beyonce, i mean even Her gets bashed and critised publicly about her style, personal life even freakin time 24/7 by bloggers, on tv everywhere. WHO IS ALWAYS 100% SUPPORTING HER? But guess what she chose to respond all of us whith her music, quality music for that matter, she sells and Gets that money. HMMM, …. Madam Nyra, how many years now, we are still calling you upcoming artist, Tiwa savage that was even criticize in that article, yet her music speaks for her this year only BET, and several other shows internationally and locally, sometimes she gets her outfits right and other times ITS A NO NO. Why making this a big issue! NOBLE, DO YOUR JOB JAREE. KEEP LOOKING FOR SUPPORT MADAM NYRA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I go on everyday and they won’t post anything that didn’t ring true on all grounds. First of all would Emma Nyra prefer to always be on the worst dressed list of all shows or to be called out once and for all and then fix her style issues. Well, what they say about empty barrels.

      This is the first time I’ve ever heard of them (side-eying BN for addicting me to the point where I can think of no other Naija online forum that I’d rather be) but guess where I’m going to be dropping into from now on? 😀

    Emma let us be honest! You need a STYLIST, sometimes your make up and hair doesn’t go with what you are wearing.

    Lami,i know your style is quirky but my fellow petite sister you need a STYLIST.

    Tiwa,i know you are loving your toned physique but aunty you need a STYLIST for your face too o

    Mrs Idibia, you need two. You need to learn to dress to compliment your complexion. Get a new hair Stylist whilst you are at it.

    Please if you cant afford a stylist use youtube / google. Type in the occasion and it will give you options pick your favourite 3 then pick the one you are most comfy with. Remember less is more and combination is everything. Oya you people should hire me.

      Pintrest is also a great place for checking out what’s happening within the style/fashion sphere. Most style mags have websites to click to and there are bloggers galore to follow and sniff out style tips from.

    She didn’t say…
    She said you
    She may…
    Referring to Noble as a “she?” LMFAO!
    Pronouns amiss. I guess his assistant typed those comments.

    Noble made good points though.

    Emma; women should praise and love themselves. Please do that in the light of the Ubi Franklin stories.

      The person who wrote the article is female. Noble is the owner of the site

      What’s wrong with an Igbo accent. This is 2015, you need to leave your insecure personality behind. Really

    Abeg madam Emma Nyra, u seriously need a stylist. Always looking tacky, wanna be, mgbeke-ish, dirty. U just need to work on it, simple!!! Nne abeg, just learn from people’s observations and work on ur fashion sense.

    No one is bringing you down Miss Nyra, you have single handedly brought yourself down with your tacky style and your low self esteem( clearly from the way your replied noble) Woman up! Get you a new stylist and stop wearing tacky shit.

  23. Moving on Swiftly

    January 13, 2015 at 3:58 pm

    and you’ve got style Mr Noble? I laugh in French. Not with that those your “bonfo” trousers you are always wearing abeg.

  24. Amaka

    January 13, 2015 at 4:10 pm

    What has Noble’s head have to do with this now? He never called her out on having cellulites or protruding tummy he only mentioned that she needed a new STYLIST. You people mentioning Noble’s head are no different from Emma. Bash his style of writing but not his head. He has no control over that just as you have no control over your beautiful imperfections.

    Emma, I know you take it personal…heed his advise and get a new stylist and stop making noise on twitter.

  25. LOL

    To be honest, I have to agree with Noble on this one. She really needs to work on her style

    January 13, 2015 at 6:48 pm

    Let us all pause for a second and re-examine this. I thought if you’re going to critique anyone as it relates to their fashion and sense of style, you had better be one that reflects/exemplify impeccable style. Noble Igwe is not in any position to critique anyone’s fashion judging by his own constant near-miss on this site. Please change your shoe first before even thinking about critiquing anyone on style and fashion.

    and this is exactly why people fail exam, some people will argue till thy kingdom come that they wrote very well, but in the real sense they wrote off point. Emma Nyra, you went completely off point, next time read well to understand ok.

  33. Emmaneedstowakeup

    January 14, 2015 at 11:39 am

    EMMA NYRA CANNOT DRESS !!! She should stop hiding behind all this nonesense about him not supporting her career and get a new stylist, simples. Went to a show where she was perfoming and her stage outfit was horrible, she had serious camel toe and the whole thing just looked tacked. Own it Emma, the guy was only trying to help you!

    January 16, 2015 at 12:21 pm

    Emma nyra you are a fool for this.
    Your stylist is wack.
    You always looks a mess on the red carpet and in your videos. Noble is a very good friend because if he was a complete A-hole he would also tell you the truth about your awful music but instead he supports your tone deaf songs with his site. You have been trying to breakthrough for 5 years and still nothing…music is not your calling.

    January 16, 2015 at 9:21 pm

    Emma Nyra is quite delusional! The fact that u r the only female in your crew and u still can’t shine should open your eyes that u r doing something wrong. First change ur tacky dressing and stop wearing clothes that are extra smedium. Secondly get that ass in the gym…where r u when Iyanya goes to the gym? U should be going with him..and lastly make good music! That’s all, and you’re welcome for the advice I just gave u.

    January 17, 2015 at 1:51 pm

    Truth hurts, Emma. Get urself a new stylist and stop making this abt “cos am a woman” bull crap.
