From Beauty Dust & Peridot Dresses to Hitting the Red Carpet! Watch Oreka Godis’ Journey to the 2015 AMVCA



Oreka Godis at the 2015 AMVCAs - Bellanaija - March2015012

So you’ve seen all the glam from the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards 2015, but what you haven’t seen is how some of our favourite stars got ready!

BN is giving you an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the AMVCAs – Yesterday we showed you Dakore Akande‘s Red Carpet Dress selection process via the Zinkata Red Carpet Challenge; and today, we get to follow actress Oreka Godis as she got ready for the big event.

You also get to see EbonyLife TV presenter Lamide Akintobi who also rocked with the same glam squad.

We not only get to see the inspiration behind their stunning Peridot dresses and Oreka’s regal natural hair low chignon bun by Dupe Talabi of TasalaHQ; but also the creation of their makeup by Banke Meshida-Lawal of BM|Pro, and an inside glimpse at what really went down at the AMVCAs.

    I’m not sure I have the words to describe the crush I have on this Oreka girl. By all means not the body or the dress. Its the eyes people. The eyes! And for those you’ve been equally blessed to hear her voice; pure heaven.
    Strolls away…

      Please can someone share the details for this hairstyle. Is this like a pick and drop using kinky ‘attachment’? You tube references will be appreciated.
      Please help a desperate sister out.

    Nigerians can pose and show off shaa..all about clothes make up and other trivialities. Shallow shallow shallow. Seeing these ppl no one will know that ppl are suffering and cannot even afford 3 square meals…the disparities are incredible…

      How is this a showoff when its a joint effort between her and the brands support her to market their services and goods?
