IT'S NOW OFFICIAL. SO SAYS SARAH



GORGEOUS! SMART! SWEET! LOVELY! This are the few adjectives that describes Sarah Ofili-the soon to be Mrs Onunaku aka Mrs Killz, who was serenaded by her beau Ikechukwu Ugonna Onunaku-KILLZ on October 22, 2011 as she added a year. She got one of the best birthday presents so far on her birthday-a beautiful D.I.A.M.O.N.D ring. Like you all know, diamonds are supposedly the ladies best-friend. It was the opportunity for the rapper/entertainer to cement his love for his beau of many years and propose marriage, which the sweet boo sweetly & gladly accepted.

So we are all highly expectant as the couple would soon be picking a date for the nuptial.



And like this picture seems to suggest-It’s a done deal, so haters go******


GUESS WHO IS BACK IN TOWN?


We plan not to mention any name; we would only try to give as much sign as possible to describe who we are talking about. Firstly, she is as beautiful as they come, we can rightly describe her as gorgeously fantastic, she should either be in her late 20's or like some people have said in her early 30's.

Several months ago she relocated for a short-while to the UK, firstly to get away from prying and evil eyes, who like many said didn't mind their business. Secondly, she went away to go give birth to a much celebrated handsome baby boy.

It's been several months now, since she delivered the boy amidst much pomp, and it’s been several weeks now since she came back into the country with her bundle of joy, life has not been the same again for her, though she left with much promise of swagger on her return, she has returned with much more evidence of unbelievable swagger, not only has she been relocated to a more befitting abode to match up to her new status. Her new address is Nos ??? Bourdillon road, Ikoyi,a beautiful grey edifice.  We prefer not to give the real address for security reasons, but it’s not too far from a former Governor of the Centre of Excellence. At her beck and call are 2 of the best ''Wonders on Wheels'' that man has made-a black, 2012 edition of the Range Rover Sport SUV, some have described this car as the best SUV in the World and a Porsche Panamera 4, just for her to cruise around in whenever there is the need.

RANGE ROVER SPORT

PORSCHE PANAMERA

It's a simple case of you all can eat your heart out. No more,no less. Shikena!!!!

MTN LF&DW 2011-DAY 1-PHUNKAFRIQUE

This brand should be more celebrated than it is now, her clientele from what we hear is like a who is who amongst the very style savvy and many attest to the fact that she knows her onions. Funke Ogunde's beautiful collection at the LF & DW 2011 was very classy and sweetly feminine and she was well applauded.





WELCOME TO THE MTN LAGOS FASHION & DESIGN WEEK 2011-DAY 1-MANGO

The maiden edition of one of the best fashion weeks so far in the country began with a lot of pomp and the beautiful show was powered by communications giant MTN in collaboration with Style House Files and well supported by the British Council, Blackberry, Villa Medici & Lagos State Govt.
Truth be told, apart from the little snag that is common to most events in Nigeria-keeping to schedule, it was a very well packaged show, that was well attended and that showcased some extraordinarily talented set of people. Like we always reiterate Africa has got so many talents, what we need is the platform to showcase those talents.

The Mtn LF&DW 2011 was the fantastic platform to expose some of Nigeria's great but not too well-known talents, who were mentored prior to the events proper and who showcased their beautiful works at the exhibition throughout the 3 days event (October 26-29, 2011). It afforded many the opportunity to see and interact with those that might probably become the future of fashion & design in Nigeria.

There were also a proper fashion showcase at the same venue-Eko Convention Centre,Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos. The 1st day had Mango, Exclamations by Tomi Rotimi, Phunkafrique by Funke Ogunde & Koke on the Ramp and the 4 brand, all had a marvelous showcase.

REVISTING THE WAR BETWEEN DENCIA & LIZ GARVEY-THe otherside


DENCIA AKA RANGE ROVER & LIZ


There was plenty of drama at this year's edition of the annual Headies, formerly Hip-Hop Awards, and two out of the lot that took the crown were not part of the awards proper, but were two events that happened just outside the venue of the event. First was the battle royale between self-acclaimed Africa's newest and hottest singer-Dencia also known as Range Rover and young and enterprising entrepreneur of note-Liz Garvey. The battle-ground was the very expansive and marble clad toilet at the Eko Hotel & Suites.

 The 2nd battle was actually nipped in the bud before it would become a major rofo-rofo fight. A member of D’banj's crew (his P.A) had tried to be funny with Choc City main act - MI and someone had sighted him and quickly alerted the Choc City boys, but thank God that what could have become another turf war was sorted out by the maturity of Don Jazzy.

Back to the one that turned to Rofo-Rofo fight, was the very enhanced Cameroon born music act Dencia who is also known by another name Range Rover, who is a budding artist and supposedly a student in the United States, on the other side was the young owner of fashion retailing outfit, Gavy's Couture - Liz Garvey, the battle that finally came to a head at the toilet arena of the main-bowl of Eko Hotel & Suites actually started a year ago.
The fight between these erstwhile friends at the Eko Hotel & Suites  left one of them nearly naked (Dencia's boobies were on display) and her precious wig was forcefully removed and thrown away, the battle of the titans attracted much attention. In the reports that were carried after the whole episode, only one side was aired so we thought to get to the bottom of it all.

This is the new one from the House of Tonto Dike, the in your face actress has decided to add to the already growing body art-Tattoo on her beloved body. This time around she literally decorated a half of her back with the picture of a mermaid or was it just a picture of her face?

DA'PRINCE MOVES......................


We are so sure your minds are already on the overdrive. Has he finally left Mo'Hits record, maybe he has gone on to set up his own record label or something, moved where? The younger sibling of the President of Mo'Hits Records, has finally moved out of their Maryland abode-Mo'Hits Mansion to his own place, the new address is somewhere at Lekki Phase 1, not too far from Don Jazzy & D banj, who had moved also to the Island a couple of months ago.



The new house is a 6 Bedroom duplex befitting an upwardly mobile, eligible bachelor like Da'Prince-aka Omoba. The Mo'hits members, except for Wande Coal have all moved out of the Maryland mansion, while Jazzy & D'banj still lives together but now at Lekki, Dr. Sid the dentist turned musician moved to his own place at the 1004 Estates.

NOLLYWOOD ACTOR STRUCK BY STROKE


The family members of this famous veteran actor are in a pensive mood right now, the cause of their fear is not far-fetched, it’s the health condition of the thespian, who is known to be very good at role interpretation. 3 days ago, the actor was struck suddenly by stroke and he had to be rushed to the hospital for medical care and close observation. Though he is said to be recuperating, the family and very few friends in the know, are praying for a quick and full recovery.

The much loved actor has been in the business for more than 30 years now, and he hails from the South-south part of Nigeria, he is married with 4 kids.

We join the family in praying for a quick recovery for the actor/singer.

ANITA ISEGHOHI-THE CARING QUEEN


Some are not just beautiful physically; their gorgeousness is also from deep within. At least that much we have come to experience, as it concerns former beauty queen Anita Iseghohi-Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria 2004. We met her by chance recently at the Motherless Babies Home, Lions Village, Lekki. Where her store-The Baby Store, located at The Chase Mall, Adetokunbo Ademola, had come to donate several baby things to the Foster home, and from what we were able to gather, it's not a one off donation from the beauty queen, but rather a recurring one on her part.
