      Zikora means ‘show the world or people’ in Igbo(Ibo) language, particularly from Anambra or Enugu states axis…it’s a short form of one those mentioned in my comment and more. Not sure of the full version of Arese’s daughter’s though…

      Zikoranudodimma – show the world that peace is good.
      Zikoranachimebuka – show the world that my God is great
      Zikoranachimdimma – show the world that my God is good
      Zikoranachimdindu – show the world that my God lives or my God is alive Zikoranachimamaka – show the world that my God is beautiful.

      Zikora could be ‘Gosioha’ in another Igbo language version spoken in parts of Imo and Abia States.

      Ah, don’t you know she’s Bella Naija’s “personal person?” Arese, Isoken, Nnenna, Leslie, Fifi Dilly, Chude, Adebola, Toke, Rita, OmoT, Elohor, Tiwa, Genny even LInLin (Ikeji) – they are BN’s people. They are here every other day/week/month. They can do no wrong.

      I have accepted that and you should too. LOL!

      That awkward moment you use a celebrity to market your clothes and nobody really cares about said clothes because the celebrity is trailed with jucier matters.

      Please na, you people should look at the fashionable somtin Iro Lagos is selling

      My sister, much as I view Toke, Arese and their clique as a brood of vipers, this your prayer mbanu. Arese and Michael will never get back in Jesus name, you want Arese to also write a book like Toke abi you don’t know she also saw shege in Michaels hands?

      Haba, how can you give this kind of quarter gist? Who is Michael? What shege did Arese see? I’ve always been curious about Arese since i read her first article on BN.

    oh so you have daughter and you were telling Anita to abort her cos toke is your friend
    God will answer you.

    Yours will go first.

      What manner of brainless talk is this biko nu???… is her child’s death the solution for stopping abortion???? Wicked human! It is your type that will engage in jungle justice to cure armed robbery…foolishness and a total waste of space and Internet data…oloshi!!!

      Your type now will come and say that I am Arese and that’s why I am responding to you. NO! I am just a common sense somebody who can see past human errors in judgement. Gerrarahere mehn!!!

      Justina???????? How can you say this????? Bella and you leave this comment on here? Some creepy crawly wishing death on a child that has done her no harm?

    • Anoy

      December 10, 2016 at 8:30 am

      Anita child too had done no harm ……. think deeply about that

    • Oversabi

      Anita”s child was used to cause havoc. The circumstances are different. When your husband gets an Anita pregnant please buy diapers for the baby and congratulate the mother.

    Nice photos, but I’m just looking at how tiny the girls plaits are. Why make such stressful hair for a kid??

    • Ritadando

      December 10, 2016 at 7:34 am

      Did you stop to think that Zikora might like the style? And why assume it was stressful? Maybe the stylist works fast and has gentle hands. Either way it’s none of your business.
