    My thoughts exactly, didn’t see any cosmetic anywhere. Guess it was more of a birthday party instead.

    How is this a weird group of ppl? Just because its not the same old party hoppers. You guys complain its the same old wannabe party hoppers in all bn pictures now that you see different faces it’s a problem.

    June 6, 2017 at 6:52 pm

    Nobody takes dabota seriously…Allher noise on Instagram, so this is the kind of crowd she could pull for her occasion. It’sobvious she is trying too hard to be and mix with the right crowd . Toke pls stay away, u not a wannabe..u a starrr

    • Osa

      June 6, 2017 at 7:58 pm

      Dabota ain’t no a lister. Just a former beauty Queen who got married to a rich baba carpinta. Even her wedding pics. No real person there.

    What exactly is she selling? Did I miss the picture that was advertising her wares?
    Otherwise.,I am not understanding ?

    June 6, 2017 at 7:32 pm

    Dabota is a real pretty lady but all I see are Pela’s breasts. Very distracting…

  25. Siju

    Store Launch but we do not get to see the store’s beauty & / or products, but people who have come to consume at Dabita’s expense.

    Will they return to make purchases? Questions to be answered!

    When you launch a store, you need to let people discover your products, try them and as well make purchases.

    What exactly is the essence, when they leave this store launch without a reason to benefit this business.

    MARKETING 101! Good luck though

    The skin on Dabota’s feet tho! And on her arms! Haaa! ?

    Kai they wanted to play Aku 419- dabby and Suji, dating and all and milking Aku, so if Aku did not sharp up they would have given him baby to raise. This life is a real pot if beans

      Ah ah.

    • Jo!

      June 8, 2017 at 7:34 am

      And clearly, this Suji still has small sense because he refuses to marry her.

  34. Really? BN?

    June 8, 2017 at 7:23 am


    First of all, Dabota wasn’t launching her “store”. It was her birthday party AND the dedication of her building she owns on Admiralty Way. BN writers with their misinformation as usual. Your reporter forgot to screenshot the photo with Dabota’s pastor praying at the beginning. Plus, it wasn’t a “come one come all” kind of thing. Considering she had her daughter at the event, sense would tell you it was only her personal people that were invited. World people. Yes they look like a mismatched bunch, but that just validates the point. This wasn’t Eko for Show. It was a gathering of people that have been part of he journey. We all have them. Put all the people that “have your back” in a room and tell me that they all look like they move in the same circle. Exactly.

    *as I was*
