    i think its time our hausa and fulani brothers and sisters in the north should start being part of mainstream Nigeria social culture. the tend to exclude from us in the south for some reason i cant understand after all we are all Nigerians. this three women on this magazine is a prime example of what good that it brings in promoting the diversity in Nigeria.

      That’s because they want to separate themselves and create their own world while ripping and benefitting from the south, west and east(oil and money is the only time they see themselves as Nigerians). No group is more tribalistic than them, they just play it well with fake modesty and humility.

      Beautiful ! Lovely ! Cover… proud of these ladies… keep soaring… I hardly see hausa fulani women shine in the entertainment industry and that is so unfair.. they are constantly ignored and over looked . This is a solid cover… number 1 magazine in the country! great achievement… ladies.. Modest and classy…. so proud to be fulani!

    Most Nigerians are tribalistic my dear. Hausa people don’t exclude themselves (it’s a cultural/religious thing). The ladies above are most likely not from a “typical” Hausa family. Our religion restricts us (especially females) from doing a lot of things. We don’t marry outsiders (again because of religious differences and some northern girls DO marry Muslim Yorubas, Edos and Kogis). It’s a cultural and religious thing. We are probably not as tribalistic as other tribes (the way Yorubas and Igbos dislike themselves is something I find unfathomable)…..

      You’re contradicting yourself. You live in Toronto. You dunno what you’re talking about. Or do you? I live in Abuja. Schooled in Kano and Yola. Yes, the Hausas exclude themselves. Nobody is being tribalistic here. It’s fact. I love them, I have many of them as friends but they exclude themselves. Shikena. By the way I looooove me some Rahama! Met her in Kaduna back in April at an event. She’s so graceful, elegant and very very beautiful. Chai. Nothern women are stars jare. I’m proud of the three of them for pushing the boundaries and not defining themselves solely by their origin. God bless them.

    @jade you are right to an extent. i have being to many places in the north when i was in nigeria and still do when ever i am in the country and i dont think some of these places have seen civilization. what ever money the are getting from the south i have not seen it in the north at all. i think it have to be there extreme views and ideology the have towards there religion and it makes it hard for them to accept any social inclusion with people who does not share that ideology. too much of everything is bad even religion.

    The delay in the distribution of ThisDay has seen me move to the ever-ready Punch Newspaper. Ahn,ahn? E never come, e don finish(huge lie) at 9am, 10am on Sunday? Tufia! Until I drive past Ikeja or Oregun at 1pm. Even during the week, same story. One has to dumb down constantly. Ruth Osime and Ogbe Obagbeina, you better take note!

Very ugly cover.. Dija with her long neck like giraffe and that other one wey carry big head like mango abet make we hear word! BIAFRA FOR LIFE!

      I won’t even take your comment seriously. If you are not a 10 year old boy, I’ll be quite disappointed though. Silly twat.

    jade shame on you from one woman to another! Why so much hate and anger towards the hausa fulani tribe from the easterners? even to your own fellow women? you should be ashamed of yourself for generalising an entire tribe to be tribalistic! And yes i am an Aba woman and igbo but i am not a supporter of that useless Nnamdi kanu i am a proud NIGERIAN… The ladies look beautiful…

      @ Florence…The most beautiful thing about being Igbo is that we are liberal. We all have a mind of our own, not surprising because we didn’t come from a culture of caliphate.
      My dear, you can disagree with Kanu but don’t call him useless!

      Am not his follower also but some of the things he talks about are true. Other Nigerians can attest and are attesting to them.
      If you really love your heritage and care about people around you, you should not disown him outright!

      The truth is, certain policies in Nigeria has not been Fair to Igbos.
      How can a people be mobile, yet they don’t have a good international airport. closer seaport, good and
      functioning rail road, good federal roads. Very educated, so called educationally advabtaged, yet they don’t head corporations, don’t have companies established to hire so called educated people as Nigeria lowers standards to encourage other people to go to school. The same people, who went to school with lowered standards, get to head corporations!

      There’s unfairness in the land.
      That’s where I agree with Nnamdi!

      The Federal government owes it to Igbos and other minority groups to correct these unfairness.

      That is the only way to get Nnamdi or any other petson like him, out of the picture!

      More shame on you. Abeg, shift and have several seats. Truth is bitter but someone has to say it. Which kin hate and anger? Naijas pretend too much.

    On my part, it’s lovely to see them comings out of their shell.
    Every tribe is naturally blessed.
    However what we do with the blessing is up to us.
    When everyone of us is achieving, jealousy will be eradicated!
    Most times, people who hustle more and are more successful, are hated!
    May we all RIGHTFULLY take our places at the table! That’s how peace will reign.
    But we must all EARN it, like these beautiful women!

    Nice picture, BTW.

    I don’t think a picture in a magazine should not generate such negative talk. Life is a choice. If these people people choose to live the way they do it is there choice. On the other hand other northerners like me have chosen not to expose our bodies tothe world in the name of civilisation I think we have every right. When people parade themselves half naked allowing themselves to be exploited for worldly gains it’s a choice it’s a life style but when they move away from that they are extremists and separatists. Listen to yourselves.
