      Babe – she went to both. Queens for secondary and Kings College is a university where she did her Masters degree.

      You are actually wrong, there’s King College London, part of University of London.

      Bella Naija had it right. She went to Kings College London.

    • Nefertiti

      December 4, 2015 at 10:26 am

      She attended King’s College London for her masters. The references were to her post secondary education. Bella Naija is right.

      December 4, 2015 at 7:45 pm

      Erm nope.. BN does make mistakes, they are the ones that posted a false article about some comments that rapper “ICE T” made (allegedly) bashing black women by talking about how “good” white women are when the comments were actually made by an upcoming rapper named “ICE” (no relation to ICE T).

    Aunty “too know” Kings college is a University in lONDON..Queens college is a secondary school in Nigeria! She did attend Kings college for her post graduate studies.

  14. sass

    December 4, 2015 at 10:40 am

    I really hope you are joking with this statement. If you are not. There is a place called England, there is a woman called Queen Elizabeth, she is their ceremonial gomina there.
    Digest that part first.
    Have you digested it.
    In that same England there is London ehem. In that London there is a school called Kings’ College. Do not mistake it with the Kings College that is all boys in Nigeria. This kmings College educates both males and females.

    This can’t be Omowunmi Akininifesi, she looks so different, unrecognisable. Dunno if its the makeup or something else, anyways HBD.

    [email protected] 28….we went to the same school…..she can never be 28..lolol. 29 at most or 30 but definitely not 28!

    • Puzzles

      December 4, 2015 at 4:18 pm

      I was in the same class with girls who were up to 4 years older than I was when I was in secondary school.

      So imagine if years later I become famous, and I say I’m 28, then someone who is related to one of classmates (Let’s call my classmate A) now claims I’m lying because A is 33 years.

      So don’t claim she’s lying when you haven’t seen her birth certificate.

  17. luvnaija

    December 4, 2015 at 11:16 am

    She looks so different with the innocent and fresh looking face gone! Could she have got under the knife to tuck and nip or maybe bad makeup Contoring et Al. Any which way hbd gal may the good Lord bless yours days on the earth!

    But this chic won mbgn waaaaay back nau. I mean, it’s possible that she’s 28 but if she’s reducing it, it’s just sad.

    • Talk Talk

      December 5, 2015 at 5:22 pm

      She’s not reducing her age, she was 18 when she won MBGN in 2005, that’s 10years ago!

    Love the photos where she’s wearing the hooded dress.
    Happy birthday, Omowunmi!

    But, @Lola, Omowunmi cannot be 33 years old na. If she’s lying, then she’s 29/30…I don’t think this one is football age tho.

  20. Lilo

    December 4, 2015 at 11:49 am

    How are these photos worth a headline? Smh

  21. ada

    December 4, 2015 at 12:00 pm

    Lol, she’s 29. Graduated in 2002. Everyone who went to Qc knows that. I guess she’s just trying to postpone the inevitable ’30’.

  22. goldfinch

    December 4, 2015 at 12:15 pm

    She might be 28 indeed because according to her wiki page, she won MBGN in 2005 at the age of 18. We are in 2015, 10 years later…….so by that calculation, she is indeed 28. I think the reason why people are doubting her age is because she has been in the limelight for a very long time but we also have to consider that she shot into stardom at a young age.

    I don’t know when MBGN took place in that year……i mean 2005……be right back…….let me google… 🙂 ……..didn’t find any information.
    But if MBGN took place before Dec. 4 that means Omowunmi contested as an underage at age 17. Could that be? What’s the minimum age for participants?

  23. Tosin

    December 4, 2015 at 12:22 pm

    Could this lad be related to a certain Akinnifesi woman that won a beauty pageant and was on magazine covers not long ago? Staring at the face….can’t tell…

  24. Noms

    December 4, 2015 at 12:40 pm

    Happy birthday but these photos?
    What was this inspiration behind the shoot?
    Big hair? Contour…? The first pic is worse…didn’t even realize she was the one if not for the name.

  25. mrs chidukane

    December 4, 2015 at 1:04 pm

    Omowunmi cannot be 28, i’m sorry. I don’t do the age debate thing but this age reduction is just ridiculous. It’s not like she’s doing it to stretch her retirement age in the civil service.

  26. Curious

    December 4, 2015 at 1:15 pm

    Nigerians are somehow Sha. Why are you guys always drinking phensic on top other people’s ages? How e take affect your daily hustle? People can claim whatever age den like, na their business ohhhhh! If pesin want they can claim 5 years sef; e no concern una ohhh. If e pepper you for body too much, reduce your own age na or better still collect the ones wey others don discard add on top ya age onto public service. Haba! E do abeg.

  27. The geeee

    December 4, 2015 at 1:44 pm

    Oh my! She’s gorgeous. But my mouth practically fell open when i saw 28. Omomunmi was a year ahead of us in QC and her birth year then was 1986. So she’s actually ‘supposed’ to be 29. But i’m guessing its an error from BN or her because 28 nd 29 are practically almost the same so there aint no need to lie.Happy birthday Queen Akinnifesi.

    All I see is the yansh in the first picture, I like my cars to be portable but with great engines……she is looking like my dream car too….#lambo#Murcielago

  29. Iya Ibeji

    December 4, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    Yeah, she could be 28.
    If she graduated from QC ( at 15 years) in 2002, then she is 28.

    A classmate of mine at QC 98 set graduated at 15 years. She was born in 1983 whilst majority were born in 1982 and 1983.

    • Sophie

      December 4, 2015 at 2:06 pm

      If she just turned 28 as she claims, it means she graduated at 14 and not even 15, because she finished in July 2002. I find this a little bit hard to believe.

  30. Iya Ibeji

    December 4, 2015 at 1:57 pm

    sorry i meant majority were born in 1982 and 1981

  31. disbelievers of age

    December 4, 2015 at 4:39 pm

    @ all you saying she can’t be 28. Hello…! I finished secondary school in 2002 and I was 15 too. My younger sister finished at 14. While my cousin at 13. So stop saying people could be lying about their age. She is probably grounded in what she is doing and might be hard for people to believe her age.
    Between I went to command secondary school ipaja so I do not know her.

    The weave in the first pick looks so fake like its literarily just sitting on her head and if one strong breeze blows, the wig would follow the breeze

    December 4, 2015 at 8:16 pm

    Omowunmi u knw i love u but c’mon naw..28? Seriously? Im 27 and u graduated from qc wen i was in jss3 or so.u were my senior in class and in age. Aint no shame being 30 even though ure an ex beauty queen.

    • Timothy

      December 5, 2015 at 11:57 am

      Lady, she is indeed 28. She was in d same set and she is also good friends with my niece who is also 28, hence your analogy is faulty. Do you expect everyone in d same set to be d same age? Na wah for you o!!!

  34. Abena

    December 5, 2015 at 12:36 am

    The first picture is ridiculous. Looks nothing like her…she looks like a cartoon network character. .sorry
