      Don’t be stupid, there’s nothing wrong with wearing traditional ceremonial wear to a African Awards “Ceremony”.

    Please yall should leave Emma Nyra alone. Do yall know what it takes to go thru what she went thru in the hands of her so called ex bf? She’s still trying to get over it even she wants to act like she has gone over it. Seriously she’s alright. She will get better someday when she’s fully over it. Thanks for understanding. This is not even her friend

      If you say dressing like a pop tart is her way of getting over her ex then I give up. She could try dressing classy n sexy instead of trashy. That could help!!!

      Emma Nyra simply dresses trashy. She’s been like that prior to ex bf. So, it has nothing to do with him.

      Yemi Alade looks gorgeous. I just love her hair. Go yemi, it’s your time to shine. The Ugandan comedian is naturally funny, love her videos.

    Everything about this Awards is so corrupt, next time the Fans should not bother voting for their favorite musicians because this Awards don’t really care about the votes.. most people that won those Awards don’t really deserve it

    Uncle Burna Boy, Isnt it weird that you had a problem promoting them cats from the aristokrats records but aka and da les is all good, meanwhile they keep getting awards thanks to your amazin hook -realniggasdontchangefornobody

    Thank you Kasiime pls teach them how to dress decently…… I don’t really understand the point behind leaving your breasts bare after you’ve dressed. Very distasteful! If you want to come out naked then do so by all means, don’t pretend to be in clothes when you are in fact naked.

    Emma Nyra is clearly pregnant hence the large tummy and bulging breasts, she should have worn a more flattering dress or maybe this is how she would like to announce her news..?! Congratulations to her. ?
