      Black people sabi fine. Too much beauty. Anyday, nothing beats a smooth, radiant skin. Gabrielle union doesn”t age. The lady with low hair is gorgeous. Yemi alade is pretty.

    BN, please put a post up on that Critically acclaimed, insightful, thought provoking speech by Jesse Williams at the awards! Every human needs to listen to that. ???

    “Just because we are Magic, does not mean we aren’t real”, “If you have no interest in equal rights for black people then do not make suggestions for those who do; Sit down”!!!????

      Apparently Yemi Alade is wearing Zuhair Murad and they claim the dress is 2.5M (I don’t believe cause it’s not couture) , now I’m not hating but the runway version was better, Plus I thought she was a “reppin Africa” sorta girl ??

    So is Yemi Alade wearing a Zuhair Murad knockoff or nah? Cause on her ig page it says “inspired by Zuhair Murad”, and it looks so much like a Zuhair Murad 2016 resort dress so I’m confused. Or is she afraid of what people will say cause it cost millions?
    She looked really amazing nevertheless. Like too good!

      @keke driver
      Please guys let’s call a spade a spade, Nandi Mngoma slayed, she was voted best dressed by Elle magazine. She is serving serious African royalty.

      June 30, 2016 at 6:36 am

      @ Prince lmao even Oga Joshua don’t want E.J at Synagogue. I know it’s church of all or ⛪ for all Nation, but that doesn’t apply to E.J. magic Johnson love him like that 🙂

    Yemi Alade said her look was inspired by the rainbow. If you follow her on Snapchat, you will see when she was shopping for it in L.A abi Londin and it was between a Roberto Cavali dress and this one but she picked it. The cost is £5000 which is probably 2.5m in Naira. It’s her money, let her enjoy. Awon Haters!

    • Tosin

      June 28, 2016 at 5:49 am

      I hope she does try it again. I’m all for the right to NOT play dress-up. Freedom of expression, abeg. And age-appropriate expression.
