    Her hubby should’ve been like nah babe this isn’t necessary. lo.l.

      Congrats Feyikemi. It’s not easy quitting corporate, steady paycheck but I’m glad you are following your passion. Beautiful family.
      But why are we naijas so ridiculously pessimistic and judgemental? We are notorious of just pointing fingers with no solution whatsoever. Just complain all day long. If I didn’t take the time to watch, I would have been all negative. Then I watched it with a neutral mind and found out the episode isn’t bad. Men are generally shy, act funny on camera out of being uncomfortable/nervousness. So, her husband playing with his beard is normal. Reality shows is no joke to produce. And people saying naija produces better reality shows, tell me which ones. This is what a real reality show looks like not the fake ones Americans watch.
      In her first episode, she introduces her family and gave a glimpse of herself which is understanding. If she had gone straight to showing weddings, the same naijas will be asking, eh where is her husband, is she divorced, where is her family. Sigh you just can’t win with naijas. I’m sure, in further episodes she will show more details about her events.

    What UTTER NONSENSE. Is it by force to do reality show? Then go on to do such a – one? @BellaNaija, you guys for just refuse to partake in showcasing this nonsense..

    Reality shows done in Nigeria are 100 times better than this now. As Tinuke said, the husband should have voiced out “this isn’t necessary” that he was shouting with his body language and face.

      You are utter nonsense. Is it by force to spill out your stupidity. Get your bitter self out of here. I swear, some folks must have miserable lives and think they can come here to vent.

    @ Tinuke your thoughts are always evil. Jheez girl, give yourself a break. You nag, diss and dissect every upcoming entrepreneur. I bet your life isn’t any much fun either. Spread love not hate and easy with the negativity. Your entitled to your opinion but I had to call you out on this one.

    • Tinuke

      March 23, 2016 at 10:34 pm

      And selfless the thoughts you spilt out in this comment are what. Smh. Lol. It concieted, myopic, one dimensional small minded to think that everyone would love what you put out for public opinion. I stand by my nah babe. And nah babe to you selfless too. Lol

    Tinuke the same you that was in a haste to diss Nicole Chikwe about how disorganized her dressing table was,and the topographic errors people make. What do you do? Show your face. Bet your this angry woman, holed up somewhere and bored with life.
    P.s I don’t know Nicole. We bella naija peeps are happy-go fun-loving people that give out constructive criticism take your bullcrap else where.

      Please give up bcos you are showing how miserable, insecure you are. Its a known fact, those who constantly critic everything acting like they know everything, their life is usually not any better if not worse. Some critic and have valid points but many don’t. Oh, this woman is too fat doesn’t know how to dress. Whereas this same people are struggling with obesity in their personal life.

    Thumps up FTK! Wishing you success in all your endeavors. With this kind of publicity comes a lot of criticism but always encourage yourself because at the end of the day, you’re the only one in your skin that can feel both the good and not so good vibes.. But big thumps up for birthing your vision.

    By the way beautiful people, let us try uplifting one another. What do we gain from tearing each other down? This is just the beginning of something new and someones vision; let’s loan her ideas (if you’re gifted in this) instead of tearing the purpose down. If a purpose of a thing isn’t known, people tend to destroy it even before it kicks off.
    Most people died without unleashing their potentials and we are the same people who castigates those.
    The graveyard is the most expensive place because so many died with gifts and talents in them. So if anyone has the boldness or audacity to even birth forth a desire, a thought, or a gift, please let’s applaud them. At least they aren’t sitting behind a desk or computer feeling sorry for their lives.

    If you have ideas, suggestions, or comments that will enable this show be what you feel it should be, or be more than this kick off, or even have more effect things included, then pls be encouraged to do so! Let us always build each other up.

    What if “you” decided to start something new tomorrow, and lots of ppl started mocking your effort, won’t you want to quit? Let’s adopt the habit of sharing our thoughts without being too harmful or mean In our comments. Thanks folks. 😀 😉

      Why do people say “thumps up”? I don’t get it? Is it not supposed to be “Thumbs up”?
      I am tired of questioning my understanding of the English language *huge sigh*

      July 10, 2016 at 7:57 pm

      God bless you Debbie. I agree. God bless you all IJN.

Okay sister or friend of the anchor lady,i applaud o,i applaud,infact im rolling and “plauding” girl bye!!!!! Pls put intelligence out there. Debbiekuks tell your girl to tell herself to produce a somewhat tangible material thats provides intelligence, educative suppory or advancement to me the reader,and her audience.

    FTK! Thumbs both down- my constructive criticism babe!,kisses???

    Debbiekuks! Im helping her.
    FTK,perhaps you get a content person whom could help you analyse the purpose or “vision” in this “educative material”,perhaps.

    . Ta!

  12. Really

    March 24, 2016 at 1:56 am

    Pretty girl, boring show, The concept of the show isn’t bad, but she needs the right production team. Hoping the next episode is better.

    Btw, the husband pulling at his irungbon was quite annoying.

  14. Showupbeup

    March 24, 2016 at 2:25 am

    Seriously!!!! Okay applause!!! After all I’m clapping. #TeamFtk please give clarity on the purpose for.this 6/7mins “education” ? The only constructive criticism to get here is for FTK to go get help with this material. Didn’t she show you team players a pilot to get your feedback? Naa No Naa…. No one is tearing down no one. So family members of FTK,you’re wrong wrong wrong! Talk about typing an epistle on her behalf,pls help her. Perhaps it’s me,I didn’t get nothing from watching “that” plus picking up red carpets and driving away with them isn’t a skill to sell.

    Debbiekuks- No!
    Ola- Naaa
    Potential #TeamFtk to comment- Never! Go help your girl.

    The girl needs to do more and produce videos that actually show her events more and less talk about herself/ her family or what she was doing before. I think people really want to see what her events look like and see the behind the scenes of how her events are put together with the video of the final events. This will bring more credibility to her as an events planner. FTK if you are organizing a wedding, you can show the consultations with the bride to be, what she wants, etc, then do another video of how you went to the bakery to organize the wedding cake, venue, wedding dress, hotel, etc. and how the wedding venue looked on the day of the wedding with the bride looking so happy and you FTK looking fulfilled, This I think will help to market your brand as an event planner. People want to see you in actual action with an end result before they start calling you to come and plan their events ( the focus of your videos should be your events and clients and not about you/family/friends). All the best going forward

      Perfecto, you just said all i had in mind. Weddings, Events and all not Keeping up with FTK.. SO we want to see you consult with d couple, them making their decisions, the ups and downs, a few arguments, choosing a venue, cake tasting, dress fitting and all, that call was obviously fake you didnt even break after ur question before responding u shld have made it a think aloud rather than fake a call to who?? i miss TSN on dstv, it would give u more insights on how event planners have dier show. Keep ur kids out of the show, myb show them sometimes but not them running to hugging u on ur bed in the morning(how many kids do that on a daily basis). I love event planning and would def watch if these corrections are noted.

    I honestly think it’s a fair try, but it’s so so painful to watch the ‘Mr. TK’ pulling his beard, like seriously???? Meanwhile, I think she may have lost us because she didn’t even give any background info on what she’s planning, I mean put a little flesh to the story. Nice try though!

    Wondering if we watched same video because I didn’t see any reason for mean comments from some people… Remember it’s the first episode.

    To FTK, weldone! I admire Women in Business. They inspire me to become more.

  20. B.E

    March 24, 2016 at 11:04 am

    Chill guys, its the 1st episode!!!!! cut this babe some slack abeg… the end, the sneak preview from the next episode showed her and her team at an event.

  21. Na wa

    March 24, 2016 at 11:04 am

    Due to the comments above, I decided to watch.
    My opinion — I think she is good at what she does and she also seems like someone with a great personality, It seems she was trying to make some connection with the audience by showing her family life however I think going forward she needs to focus on her business / the event planning. The family part can come into the picture when she has firmly established her audience. This first episode is neither here nor there so subsequent ones need to have a clear focus and stick to that to get some momentum.

    Event planning is a huge business with naijas everywhere, and every other sister in the DMV area has a sidegig as caterer/makeup artist/or event planner, so i get that you want to distinguish yourself, i get it. But nne, this wasnt it.
    This video looked more like a showcase of your great upper middle class life, gorgeous kids, supportive husband (even though clearly not into the whole lets be a reality family schtick) and your aspiring career as a motivational speaker. Halfway through the video and no event planning, so i saved my data. Go out and do your event planning, the reality tv part can come later – organically- this one you need was by force.

    I have never seen feyikemi this nice before o…but then, she has a business to sell. all the best

    March 24, 2016 at 4:58 pm

    Nice!! I will be watching. This was more of an intro. I’m thinking we’ll be seeing more of her events planning job in subsequent episodes. I have met her twice, very pleasant lady. Keep it up FTK.

    She lost me when she woke up with makeup – as in freshly and nicely done makeup. And she still saw the need to go put up some to signal her preparing to go out or what? What is this a nilly wood flick? Cause if this is supposed to be reality then it is (and will be) a very interesting one

    Awon aiye. There was nothing wrong with this video. It’s just episode one so it can’t be perfecto.

  29. B!

    March 28, 2016 at 12:36 pm

    No surprised some peeps criticized her first show! I’m sure she will take the negative comments, brush it up, turn it to positivity to get to the finish line. It’s only her first to introduce her family before the spit out of other episodes : details of strategic ways she goes about event planning. . She most likely has other plans for upcoming episodes.. Well done FTK! Great ideas for those that posted suggestions. She’s good at what she does if you truly know how she plans her events. Her passion for her business is to fantastic for and I love it! It’s her vision and dream and I commend her for what she does. I pray she succeeds with taking her business to the next level! Look forward to other episodes FTK!
