      Clearly you can’t see shadows being cast in all the pictures. Think before typing. God gave you a brain, make use of it, don’t let it waste. God bless you

    A good turn out. All the big girls and big women. How dare I forget, the big men too. Well done Ego. Her Mum-in-law attended. Fab! Mofe – forever a cutie.

    Ono Bello – tranny alert!
    Grace and Ruth – forever looking like they need a good scrub.
    “Aunty” Nkiru – is it the BOTOX or the itchy contact lenses that stopped her from smiling? Nkiru and Nike Oshinowo in the same room. Awkward!
    Derin Agabje looks so different.
    Yinka Fowora – you went there to do small owambe? LOL!!
    Biola Outfale – forever a babe.
    After that post on the NYSC guy in Kwara, I will not ooh and ahh at those Kwara state thieves anymore. I hardly did anyway.

    Runs off…

      Why so bitchy? Didn’t Ego invite you or kilode? What Susan says about Sally says much more about Susan than about Sally.

    Congrats Ego Boyo!!! I’ve been a fan fromnway back (days of Violated). There’s something classy about the Hausa women. I love their attire…….less is more……What a lovely turnout

    While I absolutely love the Ituen Basi dress that Rta Dominic is wearing, I think it’s totally inappropriate for this type of event, which doesn’t call for too much nakedness or overt sexiness…and what’s that think on Grace Osime’s head? Or is it the angle of the picture that’s denying us the fashion-forwardness of it?……*runs off after Anon*….

    Rita’s dress is very inappropriate for the theme of the event same for Emmy Nyra

    • Confused guy

      March 17, 2017 at 10:54 pm

      Isn’t that the point? Being yourself? Not having to conform to what society expects of you? Women make up your mind what you want.

    I’m sitting here wondering the songs Emmy Nyra performed to in such a classy women event and hoping it’s not “the bobo wan die for my matter eh”….hmmmm

    @wendy I bet you didn’t watch Nollywood movies from 2005-2010, cos Rita was white then. She turned snowwhite. She only just toned it down recently. Aunty Rita, that dress is so inappropriate, chaii!! What were you thinking? I want to be this good looking at 52, Haaa aunty Mo Abudu, What is your secret? You too fine abeg. You could pass for a 35yrs old. Erelu Kuti’s skin no be for here, all her agemate looking like great-grandmother already. Some people sha sabi look like drag queens whether black or yellow, no need to mention names. Ego boyo no wear spandex, if na Yoruba ex-actress now, dem go don curse am taya for BN. Fathia Balogun and aunty Mo are also in their 50’s, ask for tips.

    Rita you must be absolutely mad to have worn such a dress to such an event.

    It wouldnt have killed you to have tried classy….


    • Anywho

      March 17, 2017 at 11:31 pm

      And you had to insult her?? Shows how little of a person you are. You and your generations can never achieve what this woman has achieved and I don’t mean money wise (because little people think that’s all there is to success). Rita is classy and has always been. She’s a woman and owning it!

    Got to give it to Ego Boyo, she pulled off an interesting mix of guests in all their finery, from the great and the good, to Nollywood. It’s good to see the few that haven’t joined the bleachers parade.

    Lovely outfits from Ego Boyo, Lanre Da Silva, Mo Abudu, Ifeoma Williams, Biola Otufale, Toyin Saraki. Derin Agbaje’s Gucci.,, nice outfit that does not suit her figure, nice hairstyle that does not suit her face, #gastabelonging making a pretty plus-sized woman look awful and stout. It’s not by fire by force to follow fashion or buy everything you can afford.
