      Is it until everyone and everything look fake/plastic and Un – African that this wedding and the people in it can be classified as “stunning” to you?
      Although I can’t categorically say these materials and accessories were produced in Nigeria but we have to start from somewhere.

    Stunning. Congrats to her. @zandyzay the Ooni of Ife has been sworn in as the Chancellor, which basically is a figure head position of UNN and not Vice chancellor.

    February 20, 2016 at 10:27 pm

    When I see people going ahead to remarry I feel happy for them. Um just 31but most times I doubt if I can date or remarry again. Mine was worse, all the abuse was what I witnessed. I hope I get the custody of kids after the divorce. Because right now all I feel is hate for men. Life is so unfair cos I thought I did everything right.

    Congratulations Monalisa, so happy for you. May you be blessed with all the happiness that comes with marriage this time around.

    • cOKE

      February 22, 2016 at 9:49 am

      You are just one of the many people who dint get what they wanted, but if you want peace and happiness again believe me you can get that again. Ask that of God he’s too generous on that….Hate kills you gradually in manners that you cant even imagine.

      If you are referring to her dad, he was killed some years back (6 or 7years now) along Elelenwo – Akpajo road. Heard the guy that killed him was caught after some years but you know, the deed has already been done. Meka su badu

  23. hmm

    February 21, 2016 at 12:15 am

    Congrats to Mona, good turn out from her colleagues.
    Liz Benson is such a beautiful woman.

    Ebube, what gwan?!!!!

    February 21, 2016 at 12:28 am

    I think I prefer Igbo culture to that of the Yoruba,yoruba people seem to over do everything #IamnotNaijarian oooo, so this does not in anyway start some war. HML Monalisa

    • Mythoughts

      February 29, 2016 at 9:06 pm

      Are you implying this is Igbo culture? It is not. She is Ikwere, they are two different cultures.

    OMG!!!!! see what over-christianity have turned my liz benson into…….I want my old lizzy back biko. All these churches be decieving pple not to wear make up and jewelry and liz fell for it MTCHEWWWWWWW. One day we go here say regina askia done turn born again too. LOL…..HML Mona baby you are glowing but i no like dt ur first attire, it’s too busy. Too many colours fighting for domination …

  27. aikay

    February 21, 2016 at 12:44 am

    Mona I hope you invited toke oh cos she is the undisputed FACE OF NIGERIAN WEDDING GUESTS. Without her presence BN will not feature your event on her blog oh……

    Liz Benson. Keep up the good works. I am loving you. God bless.

  29. TY

    February 21, 2016 at 7:17 am

    It’s sad some people dnt know or realize how beautiful they are without make up or wth jus very little make up…congrats Monalisa…. loool @ ‘y??’ by ft

  30. Toni

    February 21, 2016 at 7:40 am

    Wow Ebube looks so different…. is she fairer too?

  31. cee

    February 21, 2016 at 9:57 am

    Make up artists turning people to masquerades these days. Horrible. Sometimes don’t let them mask ur face with so much foundation and concealer. Make up is supposed to you flawless not loud or clownish. I love Monalisa’s make up though.

  32. Felinda

    February 21, 2016 at 11:03 am

    Why so nollywood keep recycling bff.
    So tell me why was the whole Emem, Uche Jumbo and Ini crew not at this special day. What happened. I thought yall were such close buddies. I never knew your new friends were Ebube and Oge. It’s like I can never keep up.

    Congratulations on this new chapter

  33. I just waka come...

    February 21, 2016 at 1:26 pm

    It’s only in Nigeria, that after make up artists are through with you, even your family members cannot identify you unless you call out their name.


    Make up is for a more beautiful version of you, not REARRANGING your features from foundation.
    * yes pun intended

    Mona, wishing you the best.

    • I just waka come...

      February 21, 2016 at 4:20 pm

      *from foundation up.

    February 21, 2016 at 3:59 pm

    please am a bit concerned here.. Mona,s husband looks ….. please conclude..the question now?, did he marry for love or was he bought by Mona? It seems its all Nollywood and Mona,s friends. where are the husbands friends. We hear the wedding was sponsored by Mona not the man..hmm if that,s true.. hope Mona did not marry because she wants to answer MRS ? Pls try stay in this marriage. Anyway happy union.. Where,s Lanre Nzeribe her EX in all of this?

    • Nwanyi na aga aga

      February 21, 2016 at 5:57 pm

      This your question is very worrisome, biko Wetin concern lanre in this? Biko this is the time when I should ask you if you are ok? Hian! Mona happy married life

    • Manny

      February 21, 2016 at 7:43 pm

      What a very foolish question. So her ex should walk her down the aisle koh?

    • Mythoughts

      February 29, 2016 at 9:09 pm

      Its a traditional wedding, the bride/bride’s family pays. : / so yes, she sponsored the wedding.

  35. Harriet

    February 21, 2016 at 6:25 pm

    The grace of God is working in you, Sisterly. This is your second marriage whereas many of your mates has been single. I pray this one works.

    February 21, 2016 at 11:33 pm

    I see a lot of Kente here, is there a Ghanaian connection? Congratulations to her, wish her all the best in her marriage.

      The fabric is local to our riverine area. It is called “popo.”

    February 22, 2016 at 5:05 am

    In fact, it is handwoven like aso-oke down in Ndoki I think. I cannot remember now. Been decades since I got involved in my people’s business and culture. Sigh. What the kidnappers and terrorists have done to me.

    February 22, 2016 at 12:09 pm
