      Its ridiculous i must say. What baffled me most is the part of putting trash around and looking for a candidate to pick it up. #Fade cant you leave thrash for LAWMA.
      Did they apply to be LAWMA workers?

      well dang they can’t help how they speak but least it’s pretty clear except when she said Schedule I was like wat?! but I guess brit ppl say it diff 4rm americans. It didn’t seem like an overdone pretentious accent 2 me or anything like that just sounded like how they speak. And there’s nothing wrong for looking for the best especially out of someone representing you.

      Yeah, ‘shedyool’ in British English as opposed to ‘skedjul’ in US English.

      Why are their accents irritating? What is this thing about accent shaming these days? If people have lived outside Nigeria for long periods of time, they will have a Brit, American or wherever-they’ve-lived accent. You can’t compare these with the fakers, those are usually obvious, abeg let’s stop this pettiness in 2016. First today, it was Stephanie O, now Fade, be fair nowwwww.

      In other news, it can’t be easy to be a jobseekers sha. Talk about jumping through hoops.

      That said, bad grammar, inability to spell (not errors o), lack of initiative, those are my pet peeves. I just can’t deal.

    With this kind of interview i hope Fade will pay them 420-500k monthly because i see no reason why she would make them go thru so much task when she’s not Oprah or one big deal…….. I’m curious to know the monthly pay.

    Fade be feeling like one big Celeb. LMAO if people like Ibukun Awosika, Tara, Bukky George or Folorunsho Alakija conducts this kind of interview process then i’ll give it a YES but Fadeee…….Madam OAP be looking for superhuman as Executive Assistant. Oh pleaseeeeeee!!!!

    First 60 secs I was skeptical, thinking it will be pretentious with phonetic overload between her and Jason but I waited to see the candidates and I got interested. I’m curious to see who gets the job.

    I’ve been an Executive Assistant for 6years now and inbetween I’ve once worked with women during my career and I can tell you that working for WOMEN is not always pleasant and Fade seem like someone who will be so hard to please. I dread working with women and its my greatest nghtmare I constantly had heart palipitaations when I was with my former boss because she was like “The Devil wears Prada” movie.
    I don’t envy the Lady who won Fade’s Assistant thing because imagine posting something online and Fade sees it and gets mad at you for tarnish her so called “celebrity image” with what u uploaded online. The kind of Job that gives you High blood pressure.

    I watched a little of it and rolled my eyes all through the little of it. Especially the who will pick the trash part. I don’t have strength to go into details on how pretentious I thought this was, so i’ll just leave it alone.

    Should have had the disclosure signed and sorted before airing the show…she needs to show that bit of professionalism too…

    what right does she has to record and post this publicly?

    • sugar

      January 12, 2016 at 9:38 am

      And am so sure she didn’t inform any of them that she will air this publicly. After making them sign non-disclosure form and protecting her own image then she uploaded and put them on Youtube as reality show.
      She ought to be sued!

    You people hold just relax and enjoy the video. It’s not that serious. It’s interesting to watch. People comparing her to Oprah and Tara, does your comparison even make sense?

  20. anu

    January 12, 2016 at 6:22 am

    smh!!! why should i agree to be on camera when i don’t even know if I’m getting the job or not.. can you please use your senses Fade? hiss

  21. nikky

    January 12, 2016 at 8:12 am

    the rug task was a lil degrading for me. I mean, when i was applying for a job in a top bank, all i did was write test, pass, one stage of interview and then i resumed work. Exploiting peoples desperation to make a reality tv show is just selfish and greedy.

    I mean what is this?? How much will you pay this assistant???

  22. Great Lady

    January 12, 2016 at 10:18 am

    I do not envy whoever gets this job. Infact your trouble just started. I doubt if the assistant would last 6 months. Fade is just looking for a corporate errand girl.

    I have only read the heading of this article, and moved straight to post this comment, didn’t read the article, didn’t watch the videos. But I can guess what’s in them and all I can say is I pity job seekers o, going through this kinda process. Who is Fade and how many CVs could she have received that she would start a reality show on it for a job that’s prob not gonna pay more that 100k (max, and if I am wrong, I’ll need to see d payslip to believe). Wanna be oshi…

  24. Grace

    January 12, 2016 at 11:35 am

    First did she get their consent to post this?(because i want a job you will now video me and post it for what nau?)and how much will she pay what are the benefits involved? I dont understand this shit as it doesnt make sense to me. This happens only in Nigeria sha.

    Dear Bellanijarians, pls help a sister out. I am in my early 30’s and reside in Lagos and I wouldn’t mind getting employed for a similar role( of course without the process being aired like this). Can anyone be kind enough to drop their email so I can send in my c.v please? BN please help a sister post this comment as I’ve been searching for a job to no avail.Thanks

    January 12, 2016 at 1:42 pm

    That’s if she’s going to pay 100k. She’s probably going to pay between 50-80k for all the stress. I really don’t envy who’s going to win. Good luck cos you’ll be needing loads of it:)

    I actually wanted to keep mute but had to go check fade ogunro out cos i don’t even know who the F—– she is. so something bout what she said during the interview got me laughing. she said she is going to post up d picture of the girl with the sculpture and was like this might not get me a thousand likes but few people who are into arts are going to like it. None of her pictures on Instagram had 1000 likes on them not even 500 likes. lol. so funny. well still checking maybe i just might find one. Oshisco.

    I dunno guys…
    I mean she’s behind The Film Factory so it makes sense to me that she uses every thing going on around her as fodder for making, err, film(s)?
    That said, I was paying close attention to the quality of the video; lights, sound, edit, bla bla. I don’t claim to be an expert in these things but I also can’t say I was sold on it. I know it’s YouTube and surely I’ve watched great videos on there and so I was expecting more…
    It didn’t quite cut it for me. Content is an entirely different matter now, I’m talking strictly video quality.
    PS: I think Fade is pretty cool and I’m rooting for her so long she gets the job done.

    I really hope they were given transport fares for their constant visits. I don’t want to think like no boss. I want a job that will let me be me. This video is incredibly silly and the stress is too much for “executive house help’ or ‘educated omo-odo’
