      @Chyke, you really don’t have to put one down to elevate another, you know?
      I love Sommy!

      Kind of cold but I get your point. OVEREXPOSURE is becoming a problem where Adesua Etomi is concerned. Doesn’t make her any less talented though. I think her people just need to be careful.

      There is room for everyone. No need to pit them against each other! But, yeah, I too prefer Somkele. 🙂

      What the hell does adesua have to do with this. You don’t have to drag one down to praise the other. “I have arrived mentality” you sound silly, as far as i know adesua is humble & is forever in her lane doing her own thing and she is definitely not talentless. I don’t like using the word “hater” but you’re definitely one. And Lord please tell me you’re not a lady.. sigh

    I don’t think another designer should be showcasing others in her look-book. Lisa Folawiyo collection with a blend of Gucci? the stylists should not have let this happen

    Love these pieces. More relatable than the last campaign featuring Mayowa.

    Now question…..If Lisa doesn’t involve Gucci in her life, will she die? Haba, why this slavery to Gucci Lisa? What’s the issue? Unless this is a planned collaboration, I don’t know why you had to distract from your brand with the Gucci items.

    Lisa, be the designer you are without trying ever so hard to prove you’re in the up-market league. We already know it. Collaborate with fellow up-market Nigerian brands for shoes and accessories. It won’t hurt babe, it won’t.

    Hope you take this advice in good faith.

    Love these pieces. I have a question though is it regular for brands to put very obvious pieces from another obvisouly well known global brand in a campaign for a new collection? Maybe it’s a fashion thing but seems strange to me. Somkele is definitely my IT girl.

  7. Whaaaaat??

    Now i see why Lisa herself doesn’t wear her own clothes. Ki le leyi. High fashion kor. High fashion ni

    Why does lisa like combining unecessary pieces. Too much of dis off styling is distracting n dsnt let pple concentrate on wat ure trying to sell.

    I knw some will say its next level styling dat only a tru “fashionista” will get, but hnstly it dnt help nobody to end up looking like u scavange dumpsters for a living.

    She made basic clothes look beautiful. Almost spoilt by the Gucci add-ons.

    Somkele gets it. Beautiful.

    In my honest opinion,Jewel by Lisa is at best mid end. And the GUCCI?
    She needs to take a bit of pride in her work.
    An oh,the pompoms didn’t work and were so off putting.
    Without the flair these things don’t work out.

    How you’re complaining about over exposure is beyond me. You’re the ones who mentioned Adesua on a post solely about Somkele. You guys need to chill man. There can be more than one Shinning star at the exact same time!!! Stop this either or mindset

    Nigerians have such a pull down mentality. When someone starts to rise & flourish they come with the – the oh he/she is overrated and talentless – and try to pull them down. Imagine calling adesua talentless? LOL me & u both know that’s a damn lie. So pressed you had to bring her up in a post that had nothing to do with her. & it’s not Susu’s fault that the media has been all up on her since her engagement. Lol Homegirl is just living her life. Support somkele and leave Susu out of it. (P.S somkele looks gorgeous)

    @Jasmine Lol u can’t necessarily control what the media posts about u. She doesn’t put anything out there. The only issue i have are blogs putting words in her mouth. The new trend > blogs posting about marital advice and attaching Adesuwa’s name to it. Came across one yesterday & it was awful. But her management has been doing well with tackling them. ( last comment ?✌️)

    Lisa is quite frankly extremely highly overrated..she’s just popular bcos she has been overhyped…this is just too bland…many up and coming designers are way better. She has this colonial mentality and is obsessed with gucci the really cool designers don’t even splatter their names on clothes it’s just so tacky and money miss road notice me mentality. If not for somkele these clothes are just too bland
