SWANKY JERRY FAVOURS HIS FEMININE ALTER EGO



He is known to most stars and celebrities across the continent. According to what we hear, he is on speed dial to most of them, they be male or female, reason been, he is a stylist of the extraordinaire kind, who has horned his gift and skills over the years and so, many have come to believe in him and trust him to project their image well. Remember that perception is key.

His clientele reads like the who-is-who of the entertainment industry, from the famous Kenyan bombshell with the stupendous body, in the person.of Vera "VeeBossett" Sidika, who he is said to be very close to, to Ghanaian hotness on clerk, Juliet "the Angel" Ibrahim, to the "white lion and big fish" himself, D Banj, even ace musician Ice Prince is part of the list, just to name a few. Heard he had something little to do too, when Ciara, the famous American musician came in for a concert last year.

The dude loves fashion to a fault and he is ever experimenting, on trends and styles so as to be many steps ahead of the unrelenting competition.

He is seen here in a very recent picture in beautiful, Sandton, Joburg, South Africa, in his "stylish glory", in an all black flowing, full length ensemble/gown, happily showing off his feminine side with much aplomb and super audacity.

Would this be the face of fashion/style/trend in the next few seasons? Men "men" in feminine apparels?

We don't know yet, but let's wait and see if the trend catches fire!

What we have always known though, is that stylists, fashionistas et all, have always had a way by which they start a trend. And the stylish crowd then takes a cue and follow.

Gown for men? Yes or No?

The way Mr. Kola Aluko rolls, many other rich peeps or should we say wealthy individuals would most definitely learn one or 2 things from him on how to have great fun. 

Should we begin to talk about this man's different homes? The 2 in Los Angeles, California, USA is out of this world. There are humongous homes in Monaco, France, London and many other great parts of the world. He is also said to be one of the owners of an apartment at the most expensive apartment building in Manhattan, New York. He loves to stay at the Plaza near or opposite Bergdoff Goodman in New York.

Let's move away from homes or edifices to cars, Kola Aluko is a car buff extraordinaire, think about the super cars and he has it. He owns 2 of the best and fastest normal cars in the world, the Bugatti Veyron. One of the Bugatti is a 2 million Pounds plus Bugatti 'Year of the Dragon'  a very limited edition Bugatti which was made to commemorate the Chinese Year of the Dragon last year. 

Mr Aluko is also the biggest black Ferrari client in the UK, he buys his from H.R Owen Britain's leading luxury motor dealer. Apart from having in his garages around the world some of those machines dreams are made of, he personally owns a Formular 1 racing team called Kessel racing team, just like the McLaren, India, Ferrari teams. To show how he loves racing so much, he even hired Ferrari instructors to train him & his team, the only man to do so.

NOBLE IGWE OF NOBS 360
TOKE MAKINWA
OMOTOLA JALADE EKEINDE
ELOHOR AISIEN
How time flies!!! Just a decade plus 5 jolly years ago, November 1998 to be more precise, one of Nigeria's top fashion brand emerged on the scene, known to the world as Tiffany Amber, and owned by the gorgeous daughter of the Parakoyi of Ibadanland- Chief Bode Akindele of the Modandola Group fame, in the person of Folake Folarin Coker.

What emerged on the scene then like a bolt outta the blue as a fashion brand, as since become an award winning Nigerian/African global brand, that has become a household name amongst those who understands fashion & style and those who appreciates excellence. Tiffany Amber, when it came on the scene 15 years ago, was the first fashion brand to take the bull by the horns, following in the footsteps of established international fashion brands, by coming out with a read-to-wear line that could match any of the international standard bearers.

Jumping forward all of 15 years now, those eventful years proudly flying the Nigerian flag at international fashion shows with much aplomb, garnering awards after awards on the way, it was a very monumental & joyous occasion to mark the 15 years very recently.

The fashion brand was joined by world renowned champagne brand Laurent Perrier & Cointreau to celebrate making 15 years and moving forward.

OUT & ABOUT AT THE 2ND ANNUAL TASTE OFF FOOD FAIR LAGOS (TASTE OFF 2014)







Lagos in the next few years is most definitely going to be a destination point as par the Lagos food fair known to most as the Taste Off Lagos. The annual food fair held a few weeks ago (about 2 weeks now to be more precise) to a loud applause. Not only was it a very well planned event, it was also a very well attended one, in terms of the visitors and even the vendors.

The venue was Freedom Park, on Broad Street, Marina, Lagos and the venue on the day of the event wore a very gay outlook and the smell of food that pervaded the atmosphere was stupendous. We had a taste of some of the things on offer, here and there and we were impressed in no small measure. All the food and drinks vendors that participated from what we could see, must have gone home quite happy, from making brisk sales. This was our 2nd time of ever going to the Freedom Park and we are really loving the place, a nice event centre we must comment.

Kudos to Bisola Dejonwo-Tokan, for putting together a great event, and with more good support-in terms of sponsorship and adverts we can bet that in the next few years, it would become the best event of its type and the premier food event that all and sundry would want to be a part of. We even hear, though not yet confirmed, that the event might become a twice yearly event, but both events wouldn't hold in Lagos, the other might hold in Abuja, the FCT.

The event was put  by Aldo Global Services Limited.

WHO IS AFRAID OF KWANKWASO?

HOUSING ESTATE



FLYOVER

STREET LIGHTS

We have verified the allegations of a full blockade of Kano State Governor Kwankwaso from all public venues in Abuja by the Jonathan-led PDP government. The Kano State governor who intends to make his declaration to run for the Presidency of Nigeria under the APC opposition party this Thursday (Tomorrow), after making several attempts to secure these public avenues, to no avail over the past days finally resorted to making this infraction known to the public in a Press release by his office.
The question is: who is afraid of Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and why?

We proceeded to check the record of Governor Kwankwaso and the reasons why the Jonathan-led Government could allow Atiku Abubakar and General Buhari make their declarations, but utilizes all means to block Kano state Governor Kwankwaso’s declaration for the President’s seat.
I am humbled to say that in the record of Kwankwaso in Kano over his three years, he has been different. After speaking with several ordinary, everyday Kano people, I was dumbfounded. ENDS sent a representative to Kano to investigate the facts and the lengthy report of Kwankwaso’s performance bewilders and I dare say is relatively unseen in Africa.

AITEO TO BOOST FG LOCAL CONTENT ASPIRATION WITH $2.85B

 
Aiteo Group one of Africa's leading conglomerates, leading a consortium of five other companies has won the bid for the Royal Dutch Shell's prolific Nigerian oil block, Oil Mining License 29 and an associated pipeline with a bid of $2.85 billion.
The acquisition of OML 29, as well as the Nembe Creek Trunk line, a 60-mile pipeline which has served as Nigeria's major crude oil transportation channel- moving oil through the Niger Delta to the Atlantic coat, is a major boost for Nigerian Local Content Development initiative. The Trunk Line is also an extremely valuable asset as it is also a vessel for other oil exploration companies in Nigeria pay to use it to transport their oil to international markets.

This acquisition has deepened Nigeria's indigenous participation in oil and gas exploration. Aiteo the major shareholder in the consortium purchase of Shell's assets has promised to put its competence to bear in this new deal, which will see it execute the local content to the later.

This is expected to translate to the creation of over 20,000 jobs in the exploration and production sub-sectors of the oil and gas industry. The Nigerian content implementation had increased the level of participation of Nigerians in oil and gas contracts to 87 per cent.

According to investment analysts, Aiteo by this development has shown that it is committed to the development of the Nigeria Oil and Gas sector in accordance with the Nigerian Oil and Gas industry Content Act 2010 (NOGICD Act) enacted by the Federal Government of Nigeria in April 2010 for Nigerian Content Development.

It has been established that OML 29's remaining reserves (P1+P2) hold about 2.2Billion barrels of oil equivalent (BOE), while its hydrocarbon fields could deliver as much 160,000 barrels of oil per day and 300MMscf/d at peak.

ABOUT AITEO
The Aiteo GROUP is a vertically integrated energy company, expanding its global footprint and scope from oil and Gas and Power into fully diversified conglomerate with investments across key economic sectors including Mining, Agriculture, Financial Services, Real Estate and infrastructure.

LINDA IKEJI,THE HATERS AND HOUNDS BY DR. PEREGRINO BRIMAH


Linda Ikeji affects us all; just like the Premier league (hope that’s how it’s spelt), enough Nigerians are engaged in the LIB for those who may not, to know and appreciate that being the #2 indigenous website in Nigeria –second to Nairaland only – and the #1 news site and #1 African indigenous personality blog in history, our friends are most likely fans and addicts of hers and thus it serves as a primary means by which they are informed and we are influenced if we happen not to be readers.

The summary of the challenge that took her down (temporarily) is this tweet by a certain figure who suddenly appeared from obscurity.

"People still don't get it, this Linda issue is not about credit, it is about seeking permission before usage. Plain and simple."

The above comment was tweeted by Mr. Aye Dee on October 6th, two days after his twitter page came into existence (October 4th).

For the media publishing that the problem is Linda not giving him credit; you are wrong. Perhaps she has in the past been attacked for not giving credit, but not so in this case, at least according to the man at the helm of it. He wanted more from Linda. He wanted her to ask him first before using anything on his TL (Time Line). He can sue me now for posting this comment he made. Yes; that’s what he goes after.

FLORENCE ITA GIWA'S HEN PARTY

FLORENCE ITA GIWA, MOTHER OF THE BRIDE
GROOM'S MOM

NDIDI OBIOHA

IRETI ASEMOTA


BUNMI, NDIDI & GUEST

A couple of weeks ago, the gorgeous & extraordinarily stylish Senator Florence Ita Giwa went all the way to put together what many have come to tag as one of the wedding parties of the year, for her 2nd daughter Kokoeca Florence Mayen, who got married to her heartthrob Chimaobi Shawcross.

Some even went on further to call the party a carnival. From all we saw they weren't wrong in anyway. Apart from the traditional ceremony that was done in the bride's home state in Calabar, Cross River State, there were about 2  pre-wedding party on the same night. One was the bride's hen party, that was celebrated at a secret location, while the bride's mom, in the person of Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, hosted her own friends to what was tagged the Mother's hen party, at the Sky Lounge, Eko Hotel, Lagos. The venue has that super fantastic view of the Bar Beach/Atlantic Ocean from most probably the highest point on Eko Hotel.

According to some of those who were privileged to attend, they said it was a classy party by all standards.  Knowing the good Senator well, we are so sure she wouldn't have spared expense in anyway to make sure her guests were well taken care of.

Some of those in attendance were likes of Princess Yetunde Onilere, ever graceful Grace Egbagbe, Ireti Asemota, the short hair wearing Ruth Osime, Ndidi Obioha, ever stylish Nkiru Anumudu, Data Okorodudu, thespian of note Joke Jacobs, Hajia Abah Folawiyo, Queen Ahneva and very many others.  We even heard that there was an unofficial dancing competition, that was supposedly won hands down by Ndidi Obioha, who was clad in a beautiful all black shimmery/ leather like outfit, that showed off her structure to good effect.

From the look of things, at least from the pictures, it was obvious those in attendance had good fun.

Check out more of gorgeous guests at the event in living colours below.  All the pictures here belong to Maestro's Media.
