      Mbok what did Ice Prince go and sing there? I hope it wasn’t one of his mediocre songs. Well most are.

    • S! is shit

      September 28, 2015 at 10:25 am

      oh please shut it…. mediocre or not, he was there, and he represented. Which other nigerian did u see there? instead of you to be encouraging ur here yapping nonsense.

    Thanks for this coverage BN! At least I get wat d event was for. Ice prince continue making us proud, what’s an initiative for the world without a couple of artist across the world! Kerry must have had loads of fun! Thank you Bill and Melinda Gates.

    Now that kerry Washington is everywhere nobody is cussing her. If it’s Toke now…….??

    • bukky

      September 27, 2015 at 1:58 pm

      Double standard. People hate Toke “just because”. *shrug

    • UjuNwa

      September 28, 2015 at 1:24 am

      First of all, there is no comparison between Kerry and Toke, not even close. And I don’t anyone hates her. Anyone who seeks attention, publicity and fame for nothing the way Toke does gets criticized, no hate involved, it is not that serious.

    • India

      September 28, 2015 at 12:32 am

      Toke yes most people here know that all these single letters and multiple avatars are from you. Honey you are NOT Kerry Washington, is beautiful, talented and actually has a job. How is she everywhere? Her show just came out and she is promoting it and after that she actually goes home and minds her own business unlike you. She is keeps her private life private, you don’t see her living a fake life on the internet, or jumping from one street corner to the next. Keep trolling the internet while Anita has your husband.

    OMG!!!!!! Ice prince performed in front of these global powers, hmmm I av just gotten a whole new level of love and respect for him. SOOOOOOOOO proud of my prince !!!!!!!!! But on a serious not sha e fall my hand for the red carpet looking like a ragamuffin. He is one of the most dapper rapper I know so why dress so down on an event like this when you can SLAY with ur attire and keep the paparazzies busy. As for queen Bey, I just have on word to summarize her “FLAWLESS”.She tore the stage apart as usual. She really runs her WORLD….

    I am worried, matter of fact disappointed at how short Leo Di Cap ( yes his name has to be shortened for such heart break) is, look at him next to Kerry and she’s short like 5. 4″ 5′.5 stretching it max. There goes my fantasy and foolish crushing in the bin. These guys deceive us a lot on tv. Usually not impressed in real life

  19. ATL's finest

    BEY is a QUEEN for life. she’s outstanding. just imagine the first lady of the most powerful country in the world hugging you like that. Good pics BN. if I want to see good pictures, I can only get it here on BellaNaija and that’s why I’m always here.
