    Mara y? Bella stop with this… im all for pan africanism.. and have nothing against Minnie… but really? is this news?.. when genevieve and her friends took a trip recently.. did you guys do a feature? you only showed us one or two insta photos.. why didnt you do a feature on Banky w and ebukas trip to TZ… why ddint you tell us all the sights they visited? you showed us insta photo of them in the pool NJE!!… BUT minnie who nobody knows is the person you are pulling out all the stops for? did they do the same when our Naija celebs spent time in their country? please Just stop… If she (minnie) has done something amazing.. or achieved some great feat we would be glad to celebrate her.. and all other african celebs.. but this is unnecessary!

      Le coco, I think It’s nice that Bella Naija has a pan-African outlook.. I honestly don’t get why you are so pained… unless you’re a Nigerian celebrity that has been dying to get your Instagram holiday photos on this blog..

      Abegi shut up ya stinky mouth and go take your medication u idiot. BN does not just cover Nigerian celebrities news. Dont your slow ass know this by now

      . I am Nigerian and I get bored with just naija celeb news and I like Minnie do if you don’t take several seats or go open your own blog which is strictly Nigerian. Anofia writing an epistle cos you mad the person coveted is not Genny. Are u stupid?

    Dear Bella Naija, stop trying to force SA celebrities down my throat… who’s she anyways & how has she contributed to us Nigerians…..not everything is news worthy, if you don’t want us to rate your blog low # am just saying…

      Such a narrow-minded attitude! Do you know that people from all over Africa visit this site daily?! It’s not just about ‘us Nigerians’… try to open up your mind a bit more and learn about people from other parts of our great continent. BN, well done, and please continue to give us more posts about our African brothers and sisters.

      @dee u do not get marie’s point… nd no its not all about nigeria.. however we are just getting to know some of these SA celebs.. give us enough background about the person so that we will eventually care about her vacation…. imagine an up and coming Nigerian singer’s vacation being featured on the blog… why would we care? we dont know the person… until we know alot more then would we care…
      we got glimpses of Bonang, what she does, her endorsments, etc… thats a good thing.. finally when Bn interviewed her… people actually cared… thats how it should be done…

    Chill ppl if u dont know Minnie not its Bella Naija fault. I happen to be from SA follow the website I enjoy reading about reading Nigerian celebs and News, Just as much seeing SA celebs here. And FYI she was co host for the AMVCA’s.

    @Ada NNewi.. im not against the pan Africanism…. thats a good thing…. but this surely is irrelevant…. thats my point.. When BN featured her the time she was hosting the amvca’s i was happy.. i also liked the red carpet looks from those SA awards (i think it was SAMA’).. THIS however isnt news… thats my point.. so what if she vacationed. who cares.. she isnt popular enough inaround africa to have her personal vacay featured.. just like an SA blog wouldnt feature EBUKA’s vacation…
    i have nothing against MInnie.. i have met her a few times… she is lovely.. but this isnt news.. BN should rather report on some of the good works she’s been doing.. SIMPLE

    Most people come here for NIGERIAN news and not South African news. BN got known thanks to the Nigerians. I visit websites from other countries like Soompi(South Korea) and TokyoHive(Japan), and they only report on the things going on in their countries respectfully.

    I hate narrow and close minded heffas. Everything has to be one country, one tribe, one race. Please GTFOOHWTBS . This is 2016. This is why many African nations despise Nigerians cos some act like Nigerians are above everyone on this African continent, meanwhile everyone knows we are not and every one knows our bad reputation world wide.

    Come off ya fcking high horse trying to be exclusive

    I am Nigerian and I love Minnie

    it’s a real slow news day…..
    Don’t you guys get that by now?
    BN posts irrelevant stuff when there’s nothing relevant to post

    Some of you Nigerians are full of shyt. This is the same whining and complaining y’all do when Bella sometimes post on Ghanaians. Who the fck do some of you think you are. Like seriously

      And who the – do you Ghanaians think you’re too, it’s not by force to read a Nigerian blog oh! i’m sure there are many Ghanaian blogs you can choose from!

    • Hands up

      May 17, 2016 at 8:31 pm

      Madam, you people should create your own Ghanaian bellanaija now, you can’t be coming here a predominantly Nigerian website and still have the guts to say we are full of shyt. Just shut it abeg
