      You obviously used a Nokia 3310 to view these pictures . How can you even see anything wrong in Chiomas hairstyle? Are you in Jupiter?

      The hair isnt nice, doesnt go with the dress which is more modern that the hair.

      I was busy staring at the gorgeousness of chioma and didn’t notice the hair. They hair is actually not bad. Styled a little bit more, will be perfect. She’s still beautiful. . Adesua, is a natural beauty. Only a village Yoruba girl matches her hair with her outfit on top of bleaching, iyabo stop embarrassing yourself. Is eniola serious with the nose ring? It better be part of her comedy skit bcos she looks hideous.

    So I see the reason why Iyabo Ojo had a green hair because her outfit is green? Serious. Extremely make over .com! Moving on Mercy Ajise, The Aneke twins my kind of dressing work it ladiea!! @ Eniola is that a nose ring? Pls get a piercing instead ie if it’s real because that nose ring is unattractive …Desmond I know U are happily married with kid but damm U can get it my long time BOO. Chioma is looking stunning in that dress & her make #FLAWLESS#

    They all look good, except two call-outs: Mercy Ajisafe, you’re my sister in vertical position but that shouldn’t stop you from wearing floor length outfits. Your dress would have looked completely regal if it was longer pass your ankle. Eniola Badmus on behalf of all oduduwa maidens and matrons pweez, pweety pweez cut the bull with that nose ring. Thanks!

    Juliet Ibrahim is stunning anyday anytime… Omotola always on point. Now Is there a way to convince Eniola Badmus to get that thing off her nose its not cute joorh… Yoruba actresses would always want to form Green hair Green dress Maybe u shld holla Mercy Aigbe for a little bit of training Iyabo Ojo… I can’t wait for d remaining pictures

    OMG!!!!!! Eniola looks like a fat sallah ram with that nose ring, it’s so distracting. Chioma chukwuka, after so much absence from the spotlight this is how u plan to come back, looking so cheap, classless and local. Pls get a stylist both for your dada hair and for your wardrope. Kemi lala and Adesua are slaying so far and Juliet Ibrahim is still the best dressed. Omotola is looking so ordinary maybe because those people are covering the beauty of her gown. Lemme wait for the full pics…….

      Honestly for writing WARDROPE you are NOT allowed to have any opinion!
      Razz illiterate sallah ram!

    I don’t know if it is the fabric or colour of the skirt, but that golden-yellow used on Chioma’s gown is just disturbing to the eye…Appart from that Juliet Ibrahim did it for me.

  16. Hmmm

    September 27, 2015 at 3:21 pm

    Aikay go back to your books instead of sleeping on BN

    I like juliet’s dress a lot but to me because it’s so long it makes her look short and squat.

  18. Boma

    September 27, 2015 at 5:34 pm

    Even though I can’t see Omotola’s dress fully, I can see the elegance and flawless ness.

    September 28, 2015 at 8:41 am

    Soooo are we just gonna act like we don’t see Chioma’s hair?? Lmaooo kontinu…

    Yoruba Actresses always stand out from the crowd. its almost like no matter how hard they try they just still look trashy… as in for some reason.
    Please sombori should tell eniola that that nose ring now belongs to pigs. as for iyabo ojo, no words really.

    then my chioma chukwuka apotha…. i dongerrit really… waz going on? horrible hair and face looking like Indiana Jones… dial back a little darling
