      What was Tiwa thinking wearing that with such high slit to someone’s wedding? So Aunty you are too big for asoebi that others are wearing? Because your estranged husband is going to be there does not translate to “revenge party”. Na wa.

      She’s not too big for asoebi, she probably doesn’t want to hear ‘stories’ after spending money trying to slay in an asoebi…

      Pray ??? Over 500k . My dear I can afford one trust me. Not everyone is hungry.
      I won’t just spend that much on iro and buba unless I’m getting married. But I’m already married……………..
      I was even being sarcastic

      December 30, 2016 at 9:54 pm

      The fabric is exclusive to the deila sagoe brand. She created it from aso oke after 12 years of research. Any fabric u get oustside her brand will be a cheap copycat. If u can’t afford its better u look for other options that are not so pricey. U’ll slay either ways.

    Deola’s Komole collection is bae! Steph looks ah-mazing!! Happy for them
    Meanwhile, IDK who Tiwa and Tunji think they’re fooling. We know you attended together, stop trying to “shield” yourselves. Tiwa that will not hear word. Next time when he calls you a hoe in public, don’t waste our time with your stories, OK? Accept it calmly. God has given you a marvellous opportunity to get rid of this liability but you will not take it. OK sha.
    With the way Tiwa has gained weight, I think she’s pregnant again sef.
    Err…happy married life, Steph! You’re a sharp babe! Love women who marry wealthy, responsible men and not f**kboys who will just be chopping their money.

    December 30, 2016 at 10:46 pm

    The materialism in nigeria is very twisted and troubling. I hope its not true that the so called deola sagoe fabric is btw 500000 and 1 million. This makes me sick to my stomach. I dont care how she tailors or whatever this is extremely overhyped and over inflated and sheer stupidity…i guess there are enough mugus willing to participate in the tomfoolery…..cmon guys let’s keep things real. And ppl we wonder why there are ritual killers, kidnappers and what not trying to keep up with the joneses who have no qualms flaunting debauchery, materialism at the faces of anyone that buys into the stupid hype. Nija has really becone a cesspool of shallowness craziness and notice me goat herd mentality. Pls don’t get me started abeg….

      December 31, 2016 at 12:25 am

      Oh.. I heard it’s between 1 and 2 mil when I can rock my 50k fabric and look more gorgeous wa

    • I had time today

      December 31, 2016 at 12:53 am

      Get off your high horse and try to understand that there are so many other perspectives to this. “So called Deola Sagoe?” What about the amount of talent, hardwork and brain power it must take to produce what she does? Why are you trivializing someone’s blood and sweat? Could YOU do what she does? What have YOU produced that has been worth such an amount of money? Tell me, if the amount of work, research and quality of product plus cost of production warrants such a price, should she charge less and undermine her hard work in order to be less “materialistic?” For real for real, would you do that if it were you? Correct me if I’m wrong but I visit BN quite often and I’ve never seen you criticize when international celebs wear Gucci, Versace and co but they cost more than this. Materialism is everywhere! Why limit it to just Nigerians? Or a “common” Nigerian designer shouldn’t be able to produce luxury goods that cost that much, in your opinion? Either way, you sound pretty ignorant, not to mention unnecessarily condescending and hypocritical.
      My dear, there are people who actually appreciate the hard work and genius that go into design/art and are capable of paying for it. It really doesn’t concern you what people do with their hard earned money. There are people-everyday people-who do not show off or aren’t materialistic but get robbed so your analogy is beyond stupid. Deola knows her demographic. Cut your coat according to your size and stick to knockoffs!

    • Cindy

      December 31, 2016 at 1:36 am

      You’re just bitter. Half the designer clothes in US are also overpriced so stop making it look like the materialism is a Nigerian thing. At least give her a thumbs up for making a brand name for herself. I’m so pissed with this comment. You think it’s that easy to sit at the machine and sew all day? Some materials are more difficult to make than others. The back ache is no joke. If you have nothing good to say, please keep quiet. It is not Deola’s fault that we have kidnappers.

    • Indigenous issues

      December 31, 2016 at 5:58 am

      @Cindy, why do we always refer to the U.S as the standard in everything? Someone makes a comment about the culture of materialism and fakeness in Nigeria and you bring in the U.S into it. So if they jump off a cliff we should gladly follow suit?
      All the same people have their own priorities and spend their money as they want but I’m sure Letty didn’t attribute kidnapping in Nigeria to Deola. Maybe you should read the comment again.

    • Truth

      December 31, 2016 at 7:29 pm

      Letty is entitled to her opinion and has made a very true and valid point. Our priorities are screwed up. How many will pay a doctor as much or invest the money in improving our healthcare or educational facilities?. Or invest the money in research?
      These same Sagoe fans will be the first to insult doctors or teachers that go on strike from a broken system that takes them for granted and doesn’t pay them.

      Many of these people will not use the money for improving infrastructure. They live in homes that are paved with broken roads aka posh slums and they will not donate that money to upgrade their communities.

      Yes we are materialistic without boundaries and people like Deola Sagoe know the level of insane vanity our people have so she has been wise enough to tap into it and clean out. The fabric is lovely but many of the customers who are buying it are wannabes and have misplaced priorities. The way Nigeria is today, our focus shouldn’t even be wearing fabrics that cost that is unwise decadence….

      Yes some designers in foreign countries may charge crazy prices but the people that patronize them are NOT on the same level as those who partake in the foolish spending here. They are not living on foolish and fake priorities and the foreign countries serve them well. The important aspects of their society such as education, health, infrastructure etc work just fine even for the common man and they also engage in charities that benefit the poor.

      Anyway, wisdom isn’t everyone’s gift…

    • Bey

      December 31, 2016 at 10:52 am

      Chaiiii you ppl are taking this thing too serious. It’s a thing of choice, if Steph has the money why not ? After all it’s her money. She just wanted to look unique.
      I wore aso-oke when i did my trad about 5yrs ago, a heavily beaded one because my aunty makes dem, I don’t even know d price but it was pricey( got it as a gift from her).
      Aso-oke is traditionally worn during Yoruba tradition marriage. If Steph wanted d Deola Sagoe one all well and good for her.

    • Xoo

      December 31, 2016 at 1:41 pm

      Lol. Is it her fault that you can’t afford it? Abeg shift to the other side jare. This same materialism is not characteristic to Nigeria. What Beyonce wears for her shows alone cost major money. That there are poor people doesn’t mean one shouldn’t wear what they love even if it’s pricey.Allow people enjoy their wealth in peace as long as its not ill gotten. Some don’t even see the money. All they see is the fabric.

    Titi please. I hope its not true. 1 to 2 million for an outfit. Is madness at its peak. And she will collect the money. Does she have silk worms to make the silk or whatever the fabric is in a vault somewhere. I shudder at the times we are in in nija. I wonder if ppl put in this amt of hardwork in their marriage as they do to the shakara for the wedding event. Look at the collateral damage as in where do u start from folake kuku to folake Coker to the queen deola sagoe tiwa savage toke makinwa they are all divorced. When i visit nija and attend weddings, church and events i dont see a anyone that blows my mind yet I’m sure these ppl Spent thousands. All i see are hoardes of monstrous make up with caked on concealers and wings on their eyes. Is it just me but i detest concealers it looks very very clownish. Nija will follow any trend if they say lizard fat is a good potion for the face nija girls wil rush in droves to buy it. Have some discerment ppl bikonu.

    Look at Sola David Borha does she look crazy with all her hardwork and legitimate wealth.learn some positives from ppl around you biko.

    Toke does dress nice and talks too much but its very obvious she got involved with a guy who doesn’t appreciate the flash and dash and shakara and prefers someone more sedate and simple hence ended up with his no make up understated baby mama.

    I can’t believe I’m saying this but I’m over the Komole buba. Also, when everyone is doing or using the same thing, over and over again; my love/likeness for it detoriates. This buba has now become sort of a uniform. Just the same way I’m over the abeke head tie, I’m over Della Sagoe’s buba.
    That being said, Happy Married Life to the couple.

    Now its confirmed why some nigerians are so shallow and misguided. Since your yardstick is designers like the guccis and versaces lets go there. You mentioned movie stars. These stars make at least 10 million dollars per movie so quite frankly they can afford it. They get gifts from designers to adverise their stuff. I live in los angeles and walk the streets of rodeo drive and sunset blvd. When u see these stars they dress very simply in basic t shirts shorts or jeans. Most stars love banana reoubkic…They are not even into the designer hype .and for ur information you can buy a Gucci, balenciaga, dolce and gabbana, celine on sale on clearance for a mere pittance. So stop being mugus and stupid. What type of silly work goes into it. I guess she has elves in her basement using silk produced by silk worms making the clothes.
