      Ahhhh nene, you don’t joke. One thing though, trannies/drag queens love their high hair/bee hive hair do. I just remembered Patrick Swayze (RIP) in “Tu Won Fu” and RuPaul was a fan of the bee hive back then.

      I like Somkele Idhalama but I don’t like this look.

    Hilda Dokubo for the win! Beverly Naya tickled my fancy ! Slimplicity is key! Simplicity is golden! Simplicity Is the truth! In other words, Less is more !

    To the the rest of y’all , thanks for coming ! Rather than rant , I’ve chosen to encourage y’all . We can fix this ! Oh yes we can ! Red carpet in Nigeria? Hell yeah we will get there ! There’s great room for improvement! I believe we have what it takes , I’m very hopeful !

    There’d be more red carpets events to attend but when in doubt, always remember, simplicity is life!

    -Bukky ogunyemi, beverly naya, bisola aiyeola and bimbo akintola did well
    -Uzor osimkpa you have a lovely dress but it appears too big for you and you look so skinny, malnourished and emaciated
    – somkele I alread said it, the blend and mixes on this dress stripped it of its elegance…the design would have probably worked if the dress was monochrome… make-up made you look middle-aged
    – tosin odunfa looks untidy and unkempt as usual and kemen’s outfit is just not appropriate… the rest of them men looked handsome
    – I finally learn papa ajasco real name…lol

    Interesting. A film awards. We hear more about outfits than film. Not even outfits of the filmmakers.

    Gifty. . .SMH! That make-up ruined your look seriously.

    Gosh! This is one of the worst red carpet events I have seen in a while.

    Somkele Idhalama – no please and not with that hairstyle.

    Eunice Omole – so high a slit. Zoomers will zoom and see her pubic area.

    Mo Abudu looked nice. I would have gone without the neck piece.

    Emeka & Jumai Ossai – the sun is outside.

    Nasty looking boobfest.

    If you look at South African red carpets and just events in general they always ooze class, I wonder why Nigeria has refused to ja. Maybe it’s the climatic difference o I don’t know. We need to ask them to borrow us some juice, haba!

  23. The queen

    July 18, 2017 at 5:22 pm

    All I see is Beverly naya. Girl, you fine. She reeks of class and style.

    That mamacita in silver dress, silver shoes and silver purse, also does it for me. girl, you’re beautiful.
