    Myde Martins is a very pretty lady. Especially when she acts without makeup. But she can shout for Africa.

      March 27, 2016 at 7:53 pm

      Mide can shout for Africa! There was one movie with paso that she acted omo I used paracetamol after that movie !

    • May

      March 27, 2016 at 11:35 pm

      Abike or Abeke.. I forgot. That her shouting in that movie was on another level. Not only Africa alone O. It was only her shouting I remembered about that movie. A woman can’t be shouting like that real life she will die of HBP…

    Its sad that Lagos has become a haven for girls to do runs and pollute the city. I just wish they had stay in their abode because you end up seeing hat you do not want to see. How would you equate this professionals to the 1 bedroom living lekki ajah commenters that spews rubbish? Bleachers in what sense? You sound very stupid and dumb. Anyway education is not the norm in your family so I understand. Can the so-called commenters put their picture on their avatar? Never cuz they are butt ugly and very local. Can you match mercy or fathia who’s 46 yrs and stil stunning with beautiful shape and skin. You complain white are racist to you. But the hate and bile you spew against yours is disgusting. Why must you come to Lagos.kindly stay in your local undeveloped regressive cursed redland and huts. leave the Yoruba actresses alone cuz they are better than you. Tuat.

    It’s true most of the Yoruba actresses bleach, but same goes for Rita Dominic, Tonto Dike, Aniekwe twins, ,Uche ogbodo and the second Uche and some old mommas when Rita Edochie’s them were trending from way back can’t remember their names now, but I sure know their colour then and now. I think bleaching in the industry has no tribe. They all do it! Let’s stop this tribalism. And for those that are repping ‘Ebony’ we love you guys too. Their skin, their business really. E no concern anybody.

    yoruba actresses, karashika and nene say una dey bleach. i’ll say this, bleaching is dangerous to one’s health.
    but true or not, you all are still beautiful and pls keep the yoruba movies coming. kizzez.

    Bleaching cuts across the industry, English and Yoruba actors alike, so pls let’s not start any tribal war here abeg. Now, back to my main comment, what’s this post about exactly? So BN posts about what they wore to some random party they attended (we don’t even know the person who threw the party). Is this some sorta solidarity for Yoruba artistes? Pls, we coulda seen d attires on aso ebi bella. BN, truth be told, this post was irrelevant.

    It is not only the Yoruba that uses bleaching cream. Pls don’t say that again, every tribe bleach.

    It is true ladies of nowadays bleach like kilode, but the the Yoruba actresses are the worst of them all. Check out their fingers in every movie and see for yourself. If you are are here and u are using bleaching/toning/whitening cream, I am sorry for you cos hell will be your home. Ladies pls be proud of your colour. God himself will not recognize some of you on the judgment day.

    The worst part of this is karashika the 1st part of your question was “who are these people” so how do you know they bleached if you don’t even know what they looked like before.
    And Btw, all of you, leave people alone to do what they want to their skin and look how they want its not taking food away from your household is it? No one has come to stop you from using your vaseline miss natural so mind your business
