First Photos: Osas Ajibade, Colette Otusheso, Toke Makinwa, Taiwo Ajai-Lycett & More at the Premiere of Kemi Adetiba’s “King Women” Series



Kemi Adetiba

Last year director Kemi Adetiba introduced us to her “King Women” project, “…a visual movement that acts as an accessible/online source of mentorship and emotional upliftment to young, impressionable ladies.”

She shared several teasers for the series and it certainly piqued our interest.

Moving the series forward, Kemi Adetiba had a collaboration with Accelerate TV and we can’t wait for the series to debut on their channel on the 3rd of April, 2017.

The premiere for the “King Women” series held last night at the Filmhouse IMAX cinema and was attended by several colleagues in the entertainment industry.

See the first photos below.

    wide leg pants do not fit you aunty Toke! Not on a haterade rant oh before all y’all come at me! For a woman with that type of bottom shape, overly wide legs are a no no! looks like every day there is an additional layer of foundation, which takes away your natural beauty! Slow down with it all mama! Isoken for once served tea real good! love the ensemble, good look girl!Everyone looks great btw!

    What is “King Woman” biko? Instead of affirming your femininity and creating awareness that women can be good leaders too, they’re competing with men? This shit annoys me. Instead, you’re propagating the idea that for a woman to lead well, she has to have masculine characteristics. Anyone can be a good leader, regardless of gender.

      King woman is actually just a literal translation from her mother’s Ibibio name- Obongawan, which literally means King Women.

      When you don’t know, please ask instead of being a voltron.

      Most people don’t have the patience to ask, the name sends mixed signals, not everyone understands ibibio

      The more reason you shouldn’t have assusmed. Ask questions when things are unclear. And you do sound very angry, stay calm please, it’s good for your health.

    Isoken looks so much like Arese. Looking at these pics, I wonder if all these people are actually friends in real life or it’s just for the gram

    Osas Ajibade, do you know Maura Onyeje Obekpa Ijaola? You look like her

    Remi Fagbohun looks great

    Okayyyyy Arese Ugwu is Edo, but she is married to an Igbo man

    Okayyyyy Kemi Adetiba’s mum is not Yoruba, but Kemi Adetiba is

    The Nigerian weather shows that wearing foundation can be tricky because the foundation melts, leaving the face oily

    Ifeyinwa Atuanya, this blog is from 2017 but I happen to see it in 2021. You left this comment for a reason and I also found a similar comment you made on Linda Ikeji’s blog several years ago how Annie Idibia looks like me. though it was marked anonymous, only you can write my name in full for all the world to see. I dropped Maura a long time ago. I was a little shocked why you’re leaving this comments on blogs. It’s easy to stir the waters. sending love and grace your way.
