    Some great dresses….our Nollywood stars need to learn how to dress for certain events…..eg. kiki omeili….it’s a gala mehn…come on. Doris Simeon is such a beautiful lady…i dont know why she likes to age herself with her hair and outfit choices…on a funny note, my favourite picture is the one with OC Ukeje, his wife and his so called BFF….his wife’s face is priceless…almost like she’s saying “oh lawd, here come this “bish”again….LMAO

    I will come back for the comments about Toke’s n**ples…

    Tokes skin is tired,c her legs like bruce jenner’s btw leave this ratchetness for the kardashians,nipple slip in every photo,finish what is left of your brideprice u hear

    • Mama

      November 18, 2015 at 2:27 pm

      Bride Price???? Lol… Who go gree pay? You got me at Bruce Jenner
      This was a very bad choice and tasteless outfit. She should be ashamed of herself. No be by force to be celeb.

    • Toke cover up.

      November 20, 2015 at 12:21 am

      In fact I’m shocked! MFM member wearing this kind of ratchet outfit. I thought she was more decent. Nipple slip, thigh exposure for a man? In fact classy men like it covered . Na wa oh. I think Toke is on a runz girl ambition.

    • Surely

      November 20, 2015 at 10:46 am

      so bride price is now the value of a woman?
      I’m pretty sure you had access to formal education but no, it did not and may never change you because you’ve chosen to be ignorant and backward. I fear people like you oh

    Hmmmm……… Toke, oh!!!

  5. Call Me Gorgeous...

    November 18, 2015 at 10:16 am

    Best dressed: Rita Dominic..
    Toke Makinwa:Pls don’t repeat this deadly mistake…EVER! Indecent, your boobs and nipples were literally popping out…Is it me or you kinda look like you were bloated too?Anyways, I will forgive you this one time…
    Kemi Lala: I love that color on you…?
    BN, post my comment, cheers!

    Watch them spew hate on my tokks, person no fit just show breast again?

    • Musa

      November 18, 2015 at 12:08 pm

      That dress was thrash, take it or leave it, Toke should know better.

    • Beeeee

      November 18, 2015 at 2:36 pm

      LMAO @ your explanation “person no fit show breast again”….i hope that was a joke. I love Toke but please lets be honest. I personally don’t mind the slit. If the boob area was covered, it would have been on the same level with Rita Dominic. I love the dress with a more modest boob area

  7. Anon

    November 18, 2015 at 10:18 am

    “Show some skin or show your shape, but not both. Equally when you go for skin choose your boobs or your legs but not both. Showing both is just too much as the focus is very much taken off the clothes.”

  8. Lil

    November 18, 2015 at 10:20 am

    Lmao, wait I digress. Toke what’s happening in the last picture. Your areola all up in our faces.

  9. peperempe

    November 18, 2015 at 10:23 am

  12. Lil

    November 18, 2015 at 10:26 am

    I personally think you guys didn’t treat toke right. This pictures shouldn’t be up. Knowing fully well when zoomed in it looks outrageous.

  13. Queenie

    November 18, 2015 at 10:30 am

    Toke. Really?

  14. Lil

    November 18, 2015 at 10:35 am

    This picture of OC Ukeje dancing with his frowning wife and yet smiling at kemi lala reminds me of that Obama and Danish PM’s selfie episode while Michelle just frowned on!…

  20. Jasmine

    November 18, 2015 at 10:55 am

    Lol. Toke forever making it easy for people to rile her with comments. I mean what the f-ery is that outlandish dress?. Girl sit at home sometimes. The people who matter already know you, you don’t need no free boobs exhibition to get endorsements. .

  21. ebere owah

    November 18, 2015 at 11:01 am

    Please for God’s sake what is toke makinwa putting on. This is just not right? Even if she is single she should learn to dress decently not exposing her boobs. yawks

  22. Taeo

    November 18, 2015 at 11:06 am

    Toke’s boobs though?…….

  23. Zoma

    November 18, 2015 at 11:14 am

    I love Toke but this picture is totally a no go for me. Is that her nipples? OMG! It’s okay to show some skin but those boobs tho. Well….

  24. Yolanda

    November 18, 2015 at 11:16 am

    You don’t need to put your nipples out to be classy and chic; that’s trashy!!!
    Rita Dominic is well covered and is very much chic, classy, elegant.

    Toni Tones just looks buriful… live the the dress

  32. Brizola

    November 18, 2015 at 1:13 pm

    Toke just loves being talked about because I don’t understand why she chose to wear such a horrendous dress. She could have suffered a nip slip. Why show vagina and boobies all at once. Only flat chested girls are allowed to wear plunging necklines e.g Lupita and get away with it. Such an eye sore. Thumbs down toke. As usual, Genevieve looked fantastic, honey you need to work on those arms a bit. Rita Dominic looks good and a very few others too. Ini has upped her style game but that make up is just way too much. She has a very beautiful face, no need for that heavy make up with dark blue eye shadow that does not match with what she’s wearing or the shape of her eyes. Nigerian make artists need to understand that there no “one look fits all”. Sigh, and Queen stephanie with the gloves, really?

  33. tunmi

    November 18, 2015 at 2:40 pm

    Mission accomplished, you are all talking about her

  34. Ije

    November 18, 2015 at 3:04 pm

    Toke looks like she has gained weight. She’s carrying it well, BUT, I KNOW that’s not her areola in this pic?!?!
    http://www.bellanaija.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Africa-Internationa-Film-Festival-Closing-Gala-November-2015-BellaNaija0043.jpg

    Rita and Genevieve slayed it for me as usual. And Enyinnaya Nwigwe, you MUST be my baby daddy. I have an unnatural crush on that boy!

  35. Felinda

    November 18, 2015 at 3:20 pm

    Toke, like i said of Lola Rae yesterday
    I believe in staying classy (like Genny or Rita)
    Any woman who feel just cos Beyonce, Rihanna , Kim , Jlo etc are showing their breast when they dress and so wants to copy anything american and they too exposing 90% of their breast as Toke is , I feel is razz, uncouth, unclassy and bottom line disgusting. Stay classy and cover up. The way your breast is showing is sooo digusting. And that goes to all the other females who are dressed like that too.

    Now in todays time its so hard to find classy women who dress appropriately linke princess Kate or Late Lady Diana. Everybody wants to copy what some american celebrity is doing. UTTERLY DISGUSTING AND NOT CLASSY – ofcourse foolish thirsty men will love it and then the bush women with no taste will love it too. Learn to dress classy and decent like a royal without exposing your breast

    Rita i love how classy you look – you are wearing the dress, the dress is not wearing you (like Tokes situation). Ini look decent too.

  36. Felinda

    November 18, 2015 at 3:26 pm

    WHO CAN BEAT RITA DOMINIC when it comes to CLASSY DECENT DRESSING
    She has the crown and will remain with her crown
    No body beats RITA when it comes to stylishness and i mean nobody (i put Genny 2nd)
    And i love this about Rita Because we have the same body structure and I am petite like her 5’1 (i think she is 5’2) and when it comes to all african celebrities she is ONLY one who inspires me . All the rest na wash, exposing their breast and all that bullshyt

    ATTENTION SEEKING THIRSTY THOTS AND HOS.

    • Smh

      November 19, 2015 at 10:07 am

      Oh look, another woman calling a woman a “hoe” or “thot” because of their dressing. Not everyone will be your cup of tea but your comment was unnecessarily rude.

      Anyway boohoo, toke’s areolas were almost on display. Is it boobs you haven’t seen before? Some of you are just drama queens.

      Toke, you look lovely but less is more. Either boobs or legs next time, not both.

      Rita, you better WERKK! So so flawless! Genny looks out of place…can’t believe I said that. A whole Genevieve!! Still beautiful though.

      The rest…meh

  37. koko!

    November 18, 2015 at 3:58 pm

    So nobody noticed Toke’s black pant???

  39. mary

    November 18, 2015 at 5:19 pm

    TOKE obviously loves this attention. there was sure a wardrobe malfunction. i can see the black underwear , and it appears she was not comfortable all through the event, her posture shows that. Most times they should learn to say “NO” sometimes to things their stylists suggest if it will make them look trashy. Rita, genny always appear classy.

    November 18, 2015 at 5:40 pm

  43. annonyma

    November 18, 2015 at 9:13 pm

    Hmmm Toke oh! I reserve my comments. Riri nailed it as usual. Something is not right with Ini Edo’s combo but I can’t place a finger on it. Eniola Badmus, foundation and contouring gone wrong! Finally, Aunty Chioma Akpotha, you need to get some “United We Stand” (push up bra). I rest my case…

  44. justpassingby

    November 19, 2015 at 6:00 pm

    Why are Chioma Ude’s hands black and body light? And why is this year’s festival looking dry unlike last year that was so lavish and exotic

  50. Toke cover up.

    November 20, 2015 at 12:23 am

    I think Toke is on a runz girl ambition with this exposure . Haba! Kilode for the red bottoms or to change your one and only Celine bag. Calm down now. The classy men like it covered up not nipple slip here and there and did anyone see her black panties in one of the pictures ?

  51. Toke cover up.

    November 20, 2015 at 12:25 am
