    I agree. This chic in mustard yellow is at every event. Even her relatives, Noble Igwe, Toke Makinwa and Uti Nwachukwu have reduced their appearances. Do the same luv.

    I just love how simple and understated Zina is..comfortable in her own horse manes and wild looking wigs and weaves..Natural hair minimalist makeup and jewelry. Totally different from her mom…Has it occurred to you people that she must be invited to a lot of events?? this is her prime she is young and has the right to attend functions…she always appears so calm and natural…never looks like an overdressed thanksgiving turkey the sky is your limit Zina go for it!!

    Looks like Uzoma’s ring finger is empty. Let the vultures begin. lol
