    The ’rounding and rounding’ something is the easiest thing to do on the hover board.
    It’s difficult going back and forth for a starter.
    I love iyanya’s ‘burnt orange’ blazer.
    Pardon me if i’m wrong, but we all see colors differently.

    I’ve noticed something common amongst a lot of Bn commenters, something very ugly and hypocritically. Something very unfair and rude, alongside double standard.
    Before now, I really couldn’t understand why all these hateful comments gets a lot of likes, but I get where their anger comes from : A lot of Bn’ers feels that when celebrities make mistakes and it becomes public, it justifies their hatred and anger towards them. So whenever a news comes up, even something really good, they always find a way to drag these people down. The sad part is that, this is one of the major reasons why these celebrities ride their real selves. Okay, she’s using a fake accent, I do not support that. But all this “prayer partner ke” “you’re still boo’ing” “entering one chance” is sooo uncalled for.
    So tell me, why wouldn’t they try to be fake? When you bitter birds are everywhere?
    The whole double standard thing is stupid and very annoying. Like if it was someone else you liked, even if they faked their accent, you’ll still wish them well, so???
    Then this hypocritical attitude really doesn’t pay!!
    They pray, yes they pray! Is prayer for some category of people? If they had said “We don’t really pray” another wahala! Like what is it about others living life the way they want that you people cannot understand? You say nice things to some, you tear some apart and refer to yourself as what? The judge and important one? Does it really make you feel good about your life? Get over yourselves! This is pure hatred, and it doesn’t pay!Linda said sth’ : God has over 700million people to look over, with all the hate, anger and bitterness, you really think he’ll have your time?” And she was right! You hate them, You still comment! -_- I dare you to put yourselves out there and watch people judge you for being yourself and let me see if you won’t commit suicide in a blink.

      Thank you @yue Nigerians are the biggest hypocrite’s period. They will see you on tv and decide they know everything about you in an instant by judging y so harshly. How can people be convinced that another is not praying as hard as them if not harder? And that they are preying together. Its just sad that we like to dissect what people write/say to feel better about ourselves. People are just waiting for them to break up so they can say “I told you so” and so what, are they not living their lives, can people not date anymore? It saddens me to read the hateful comments, so vulgar. Check yourselves because an opinion is different from hate. Sad sad people

Just enjoy this for what it is iyanya ain’t the one boo.

    Since Iyanya made mockery of yvonne Nelson with his ‘I’m not the only one she has dated” talk after their break up and other events, I lost respect for him as an individual (despite the fact that he’s a great artiste). I do not think he will make a good husband but good luck Aunt Freda.

    Those saying that bn commenters are hypocritical that is utter nonsense. When you put your life and business out there then everything is fair game people will speak their minds as they see fit. You don’t expect the populace to sing ur praises if there is something worth criticising that’s ridiculous

    • Yue

      November 1, 2015 at 10:55 am

      No, no, no! You bitter birds were/are/do not speak your mind. You judge people. You put up double standards. “Prayer partner ke” what is that? Iyanya is too bad that he shouldn’t/cannot serve God? Very silly opinion you people have in your heads. Nobody was born to be perfect but REAL!!! He puts his life out there, so? But wait, if you don’t like him, why famz? If You hate him, shift!!! I’m not a fan of Omotola, I don’t hate her, I’m just not a fan. Either ways, if sth’ nice comes up, And I like it, I comment.
      Your likes are the type that even when the devil begs God, You will still drag him down.
      There’s a wide line btw hating and speaking your mind. Even if the comment isn’t nice, why not construct it well. Will you die? Do to others what you wish from them. Is that how you’d want to be treated? And don’t dare reply me with a Yes!! Nobody wants that. Get over yourself abeg, it’s not that serious!!!

    November 1, 2015 at 10:25 am

    I agree with a lot of comments here.Iyanya is no husby material,he doesn’t even look it.He has this vain look and karimi style.A good husband material in my own opinion will not be taking lewd pictures of himself showing off muscles,six packs and boxers,nahhh.So like someone said up there,he’s good for snacking so my Aunty freda,snack on and wait for the main dish.I know single life don taya u as u sef have waka”d” the whole street of Lagos doing runs but still be patient small for the lasting correct dish to come ur way.No let desperation block ur eyes.And if I were u,I’ll leave the prayer partner thing for the main dish as well.Stop wasting prayers.(that’s if indeed both of u truly pray)

    Lilian is a really pretty lady, but i really don’t know who she is. I don’t live in Nigeria but i love Nigerian movies and I don’t believe i have ever seen her in a Nigerian movie; is she an actress? I hear aunty Abigail regarding her. Iyanya i know and i am guessing Ubi is a producer. If Freda is really 40 she looks good too and should keep it up
