      I thought I was the only one who noticed her whiter skin. She’s naturally light but I guess she wants to be pale. Can someone enlighten me who is this guy and what were his contribution? No pun intended. I really want to know bcos people are celebrating him all over.

      Are u for real?!! Pls do we always have to make negative comments?! She has always been dis fair!! Tufiakwa. U pple have very terrible hearts, always looking to call out someone. You didn’t even comment based on the main reason they gathered but rather Monalisa’s look.
      RIP Mr Oronto

      No, she hasn’t always been this whitish pale. go look at her older pics, and you will see the big difference. Let’s not deceive ourselves.

      Gosh the idea that every light skin person bleaches in Nigeria is just sad! Monalisa has always been light skin ,with shade close to caucasian with gorgeous hazel eyes. Go and watch heaven’s gate one of 1st tv series that made her popular and come back and repeat this, you will confuse her for an albino . Forgetting camera lights and touch ups can affect skin tone.

      Just Shut the hell up! Gosh!! People are so bitter and angry with the way God made them that they hate on those that are beautiful, Monalisa has always been very light skinned, always. Not everyone is bleaching. Mscheeew.

      I just think people should be civilized enough to disagree without raining curses or abuses. This is why Nigeria remains very underdeveloped.

    People! People!! People of nollywood and their two faced and mean spirits….
    What they CAN’T DO for their fellow colleagues who passed away or put / do anything of goodwill for colleagues going thru hard times but keep blind eyes to it but are quick to do for oronto Douglas.
    I can’t stand eye service people and too many of them in nigeria entertainment industry.
    When money speaks , shit happens. Gosh I forgot his association of girlfriend has to bid final farewell.
    can’t this individuals just stop this display of shame and allow the wife and family to mourn and lay him to rest peaceful.
    oronto has no tie to nollywood apart from ……….
    Rest in peace oronto.

    please remind me again why they were all smiling and posing in these pictures , weren’t they suppose to show emotions of some sort., having in mind that Oronto was someone husband and father that died untimely.
