Karrueche is coming to Abuja



Kontrol Magazine Karrueche 2
She gained fame as Chris Brown’s girlfriend (now, ex-girlfriend). However, since the drama with the R&B star, Karrueche has carved her niche as a model, stylist and fashion entrepreneur.

She will be in Abuja for the Play Apparel Launch pool party. The event takes place on the 15th of November 2015 in Abuja. The debut collection of Play Apparel – the White Veil swimsuit collection designed by Maison Mimi will be on display.

    She was a stylist and aspiring model/actress I believe before she became famous. Don’t knock her hustle, she’s trying to make her money legitimately instead of depending on the next superstar boyfriend. Don’t forget the Kardashians were famous for nothing once, but they now have an empire. Do you remember that J Lo was a music video girl famous for dating Diddy before her big break in acting? Karrueche please do your thing, haters gon’ hate.

    • Facts.

      November 8, 2015 at 8:06 pm

      @anon, J. Lo was already a big star herself (she had loooong passed the days as a fly girl in music videos) when she and Puff Daddy started dating. In her starting out/early days, she had danced in a musical, danced at the AMAs, danced with Janet Jackson in one of her videos, and on her tours, had gotten her breakout role ad steady gig as a Fly Girl on In Living Colour on tv, she had already acted in about three movies at least, including leading roles and was already earning six figures for those roles; and if it was a case of needing a boyfriend for to promote her ‘hustle’ as you say for Karrueche, she could have done that way before Diddy, as her male co-stars usually hit on her and she used to turn them down because she was focused on where she was going and making it for herself, people like Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes (the latter she famously disclosed then stopped speaking to her for some months even as they were filming), she also owns restaurants which her family manage and one of her ex-husbands used to manage/run it too. Say what you wish about Karrueche but please let your examples/comparisons be factual. J.Lo and Puffy were both BIG stars when they met and dated that’s why their relationship was such a huge deal for the media, like her and Ben Affleck, those relationships cannot be compared to Chris Brown and Karrueche.

      K. has every right to accept whatever work/gigs come her way. That said, the comments and questions of just about all the commenters are valid. There are prettier/more beautiful girls/women, bigger and/or more meaningful celebrities, and/or celebrities with more pull, following and fan base, celebrities with greater and/or more attractive name recognition right here in Nigeria.

      Darey pays hugely and brings Kim Kardashian (for an ‘if-you-blink-you’ll-miss-her’ 5 minutes appearance on stage), D’banj brings Amber Rose (who is known for what apart from nudity, dating Kanye, trashing people, questioning people’s paternity, and starting wars on Twitter to gain attention?). We are tired of all these, please. Our Nigerian brand (Brand Naija) is actually very valuable and very envied, even as battered as it has been and with all the knocks it has received over the years, a lot of people and countries all over the world still find it/us very intimidating, and we don’t need to cheapen or devalue it by just dashing our brand equity anyhow to brands/people who don’t come close at all.

      u are unwell

      Jennifer Lopez was a talented dancer before she made it big in Hollywood. she was famous before she dated puff daddy. she is a trained dancer. when I say dancer, I am not talking about dancing on a pole, I am talking about “dance” salsa, tango etc.

      jlo may not be a vocal power house but she is a damn good entertainer. go to youtube and watch her live performances. she has talent. she has number 1 songs.she has set alot of records and trends in pop culture. she is respected in the latino community and the whole entertainment industry.

    BN, please do your readers a favor and stop wasting your time writing about such people. You are only feeding their egos…….what exactly will she be doing in Abuja??? Taking pictures on the red carpet??? This isn’t new worthy.
    I’m a huge fan of you guys, so please don’t be offended.

    Anon, everything you say is right except the J. Lo dating Diddy part. Yes she was a video girl, but she had already been an actress before Diddy. In fact, her role as Selena (which earned her a Golden Globe nomination, is what got Diddy’s attention, which made him contact her to dance in his video.) she was also in Anaconda with Ice Cube and Out of Sight with George Clooney. And had dated some celebs including Wesley Snipes before him. I think she used Diddy to improve her global brand as a fashion designer, perfume producer, e.t.c. But let’s not put her in the same “come up” category as the Kardashians.

    I guess they have to scrap the bottom of the barrel to get anyone from usa to visit Nigeria. Sign of desperation to bring anything from usa. I will offer my dog to make the trip for free, just saying.

    It’s very simple, people should not buy the tickets for the event. Once the event organisers realise that Nigerians are not as stupid as they think, they will stop this nonsense of inviting Z-List stars to Nigerian events.

      Sarah are u blind? It’s strictly by invitation. Keep ur ticket money. And I’m sure u won’t be invited.

    Ur saying we should patronize our Naija artist Abi? Call psqaure for common birthday party, 7 million that’s 35k USD. How much more for a proper event. Call wizkid now, or davido or even korede bello! So tell me wat the value is in paying so much when it’s almost the same for an international act (I think). We should start by asking our own in house celebs to take it easy on their fans in terms Of charges. Cos if not, the focus will shit from dem to even ghana or SA celebs.

      First, why should you be calling psquare for “common birtday party”? And second, if you can pay KimK $500K for 15 minutes on stage, why are you squibbling over paying $35K to arguably the biggest artistes in Africa. Because they are Naija? Abeg, you no well…

    Karrueche has carved her niche as a model, stylist and fashion entrepreneur as stated above. I guess there’s nothing wrong with inviting her for the launch of a fashion whatever.

    you guys should give her a break…… shes an actress now. shes doing something meaningful for her self. she dint plan her journey to be famous it just happened she fell in love with a celebrity. she human who has goals. at least shes not promoting hoeness or looking for the next black famous man to date. you abuja people can pay to watch most beautiful girls pageants so go pay to see pretty cute karrueche. #womensupportingwomen #makingmoney #meaningfullifestyle
