AGBANI DAREGO ON THISDAY STYLE COVER READY TO LAUNCH FASHION LABEL



 We totally forgot this, but it is better late than never at all. It is obvious that ex-Miss World, Agbani Darego is back to the scheme of things in Nigeria. We seem to be seeing a lot of her lately. She was 30 not too long ago and she had a private shindig, that we had was classy. And now not too long after that, she's just appeared on the cover of Nigeria's own Sunday, Sunday lifestyle Magazine, This Day Style. In the interview she chatted about a lot of things. But also about her upcoming fashion project, the launch of her own Denim Range named AD. 

We are wondering if the tale of her upcoming wedding to someone is true or not?

Her description of the AD by Agbani Darego denim line is '' a range of jeans, dresses and bags for the young modern woman who loves luxury, and loves to look goofd but want it all at an affordable pricepoint". 




Truth be told Agbani is an enduring beauty, those cheek bones are so chiseled, they are to die for.

PICTURE OF THE DAY- FLAVOUR OF LIFE

FLAVOUR OF LIFE..KPOROKOTO KPOM KPOM!!!!!!

We love it when our stars are natural. No unnecessary airs and all that. We had come in contact with the Flavour man on a few occasions and we can tell you he is a fantastic person. 

We just came across this picture of his, rolling what we think is Akpu and a delicious plate of vegetable. We totally love the concentration applied to demolish the plate. Go on soun!!! The Flavour of life.

WELCOME TO NIGERIA, THE COUNTRY THAT ENCOURAGES YOU TO STEAL

JOHN YAKUBU YUSUFU

 We had tried as much as we could to refrain from writing about this issue, but we just couldn't hold ourselves in check anymore. So in order not to bust from pent up rage, it was better to release the tension and just pour out our mind in a mild manner. At least we haven't out of anger gone to make a bomb, to maim & kill just so to get attention and saying we are fighting for our right. Our own bombshell is to say our mind, whether anyone is listening or not, no matter whose ox is gored.

Venue of the event was the Porsche Center, which seems to be the venue of choice for some A-class events nowadays.

Awards would also be given in 2 other categories namely-Trailblazer of the Year & the Industry Merit Awards, the latter which would be given to a worthy veteran of the movie industry.  Nominees in 2 categories- Best Documentary & Best online Video, were not named on the night and the reason given was because the nominee selection team prefers to award certificates of encouragement to all the entrants in the 2 categories. 

The night of the unveiling was fun-filled as many of the industry's practitioners from around Africa were in attendance.  As with all things organized by AfricaMagic, it was a classy affair, it was an opportunity for many to network amidst a very convivial atmosphere.

‘We’re shooting already, working with some of the best hands around, to make sure ‘Gbemi’ is worth the wait’ she added.

BIRTHDAY FELICITATIONS TO HADIZA OKOYA AS SHE CLOCKED 25

HADIZA OKOYA

HADIZA OKOYA, IN HER SIMPLE YET CLASSIC WHITE DRESS WITH THE SLIM GOLD BELT & ANIMAL PRINT CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN PUMPS

Sunday, January 27, 2013 was the 25th birthday of one of the most beautiful and brilliant daughters of Billionaire industrialist, Chief Rasaq Akanni Okoya of the Eleganza fame. The delightsomely gorgeous Hadiza Okoya, who graduated from the University of Hertfordshire, with a degree in Advertising & Media, and who only just relocated back to Nigeria from the UK, where she had been most of her life, is one of the most well behaved rich kids we have ever come across in a long while.

So since the day was her birthday and because she had only just come home after her long sojourn abroad, the family had for her a 2-pronged celebration; a party celebrating her birthday and a welcome home shindig. It was a fun affair, as the birthday girl was up and about making sure everyone who came had a nice time. The party was originally planned as pool party sort of, but the rain on the day didn't allow for that, so it was moved in to the hall by the poolside. The Okoyas known by most to be perfect hosts, made sure there was enough of all the goodies to round, though it was an impromptu party; Champagne, Brandy, cocktails of all sorts, Ice-cream, cakes, barbecued chicken, finger foods, Sharwama, ofada rice, amala etc were available in abundance. One wouldn't have believed that the party was organised in just one day.

On hand to celebrate with the birthday girl were family members that included her doting dad, Chief Rasaq Akanni Okoya, his young wife Shade, uncle Demola & his Wosilat Seriki, Tunde, Aina, Taofiq & Lola, Lanre & Sophie, Bisola Tokan & her cute young boy ; apart from all the family members we saw 3 of the most in demand music acts right now at the party also, Burna Boy, Dammy Krane & Flowsick & many others guests were around to felicitate the birthday girl.  Like we already made mention, it was a cool affair.

We were at the party and we got some pictures for you viewing delight.  Check them out. All the pictures were taken by Abiola Aloba for MM, permission needed for use by others.

AYO ANIMASHAUN PLANS BIG FOR THE HEADIES 2013.

AYO ANIMASHAUN


 Lagos:Nigeria January 29, 2013 Organizers of The Headies, also known as Hip Hop World Awards, Nigeria’s biggest and most prestigious music awards have announced plans are way earlier than usual this year.

Running for its 8th consecutive edition in 2013, the Awards ceremony has proven beyond reasonable doubt its association to success; with giant strides in content development and production, event coordination and execution, creativity, innovation and originality which have all become a constant attribute to the Awards.

According to the Executive Producer of the Awards, Ayo Animashaun,  “2013, promises to be bigger than the past 7 editions in all ramifications as it relates to entertainment in this part of the globe. International acts who are being contacted at the moment have shown positive interests so far.”

Entrenching the values of the Hip Hop World awards, DJ Jimmy Jatt stated, “Though our credibility has never been in question, as we grow bigger, we must make our process more transparent”. The Headies is continuously going to be an awards for the music industry by the industry.”

THE ELEGUSHI PRIVATE BEACH WONDER. WHERE HUNDREDS OF MILLION IS MADE FROM THE GATES IN A YEAR

OBA SAHEED ELEGUSHI
Yesterday, Saturday, January 27, 2012 was the first time ever we went to the place known to everyone as the Elegushi Private Beach, which is located not too far from the new 3rd roundabout along the Lekki-Epe Expressway on the Island. it's a turning on the right just before Stillwaters Estate and you will pass in front of Meadow Hall School. We had been wondering all this while, why people talk so much about this Beach and why there's always such unbelievable numbers of people going there week after week.  We hear that on busy evenings/nights traffic along the beach road trying to get in at anytime is unbelievable, with queue going as long as 100 to 200 meters. Not until we got there, before we now saw that it was another world entirely on its own. 

Before we begin to talk about Fun at the Beach, let's first talk about the place itself, unlike many of the Beaches in Lagos, this particular one is very secured, safety and security seems to be number 1 on their card, the other very curious thing we immediately noticed was how relatively clean the environs was. There's a big general toilet to your left and then several fun spots to the left and to the right.

REMI TINUBU VS ADEJOKE ADEFULIRE: WHAT'S GONE AMISS

SENATOR ADEREMI TINUBU & MRS ADEJOKE ORELOPE-ADEFULIRE
What could have gone wrong between the former buddies or should we say big sister & younger sister, by this we mean between the erstwhile first lady of Lagos and now a Senator of the Federal Republic, in the person of Senator Remi Tinubu & the current Deputy Governor of the Action State, Lagos in the person of Mrs. Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire.

Prior to becoming the Deputy Governor to BRF and while still a Commissioner and even prior to that time we heard that both madams had enjoyed a chummy-chummy relationship, the elder sister to younger sibling mode, but that chummy relationship seems to have become a thing of the past. 

Fast forward to the very recent party at the Okoya residence, when Jide Tokan got married to Bisola Tokan, formerly Dejonwo, we heard that as soon as the very respectful Deputy Governor came in to the event, she went about greeting those that she met at the occasion, but just as she got to Mrs Remi Tinubu's side and she was paying her respect,  the Senator tactically took her face away as if she was occupied doing something else, not acknowledging the pleasantries from the deputy Governor whatsoever. A couple of observers who saw what happened were shocked, but everyone quickly adjusted as if nothing had gone amiss. 

What could have happened in the past to warrant such public embarrassment, we just can't imagine and we are still wondering.  Some have even speculated that the seeming misunderstanding might have been over the issue of who was to become the deputy governor of Lagos then. Truth of the matter is, we don't know if that's why they are not chummy chummy anymore, but something is definitely amiss. 

JEAN PAUL GAULTIER'S SPRING 2013 OFFERING

We are of the belief that this is another great collection.

THE RESURGENT BIOLA OKOYA


The delightsome daughter of the great Lagos Billionaire industrialist, Chief Rasaq Akanni Okoya of the Eleganza Fame and probably the most visible at one time, Biola Okoya seems to have come back into the groove again. The formally very groovy daughter of the Aare of Lagos, suddenly at a point went underground, totally incognito did she go that she left many wondering and speculating as to the reason or reasons for her action. 

But just as sudden as her disappearance was, so also is her reappearance, apparently she just did the Houdini and the new resurgent Biola Okoya, is looking quite different, looking a lot calmer and still eye catchingly gorgeous as she was seen recently at the cousin's (Bisola Tokan's) wedding at her dad's palatial edifice along the Lekki-Epe Expressway in Lagos. Biola in her tiffany blue or turquoise up and down outfit was the cynosure of all eyes as she had not been seen for quite a while.

Many had speculated that it was because of her change of faith from being a Moslem to becoming a Christian that brought about the falling out with her strict Moslem dad. But that particular speculation was never confirmed. The alleged falling out led to Biola not attending all functions and events/parties at her dad's abode all this while, but she seems to have had a change of heart and things seems to have been worked out. So Biola has seemingly gotten her groove back and we all hope to see more of her now, before she decides to go on another hibernation groove.

WHO IS THE NEXT SAMSUNG AMBASSADOR?

KATE HENSHAW


SASHA P
The above question is the million Naira question everyone wants to find out about. Remember that in 2011 top Nigerian Femcee and the first lady of Storm Records, her excellency, the Honourable Sasha P & Chairman of EME Entertainments, Mr. Banky Wellington aka Banky W were unveiled as the electronics giant's brand ambassadors. According to our findings, the deal that was signed was only for a year and the deal expired after the last Summer Olympics in London. There's the gist allover town that Sasha P has been dropped as the brand ambassador, but the real fact is that the company and the rapstress only signed for a year and since the year in view has ended, everyone has gone there separate ways. 

What's the new gist right now according to our findings is that company is making the moves to unveil their new brand ambassador(s) sometime soon and instead of the music industry like they did the last time, they have moved their search lights to the Nollywood and several names have been put forward, but according to our usually very reliable source, the choice for the new brand ambassador might have narrowed down to top actress Kate Henshaw-Nuttal.  So while both sides are dotting the i and crossing the t, we are waiting for the official stamp of approval so that the unveiling would be done 'officially'. 

So all things being equal, barring any last minute change from both sides,  Kate Henshaw should emerge as the next Samsung Ambassador.   

CHECK OUT THE DURO OLOWU/JC PENNEY COLLABORATION

 The diffusion line by Duro Olowu in collaboration with JC Penney is looking fantastic.  As usual the designer with Nigerian heritage known world over as the Master of Prints didn't dissapoint at all. The look book for the diffusion line just came out and we thought to showcase the collection. Now everyone can get a Duro Olowu for themselves. 

We have been a fan of Duro Olowu from the word go. And we believe he is on the roll towards greatness. Check out the collabo here.

http://soundcloud.com/mavinrecords/the-kick


WC, the one and only black diamond is back and kicking really kicking it massively all over again.  The Mavin Records artist only yesterday released a jam that should be a massive club banger and the Don Baba J produced jam is aptly titled ''The Kick''. 

We are so sure the intention is to ''kick'' start the music career of one of Africa's most talented vocalist, at a point it was like his career was in a limbo, but with this jam we are so sure everyone would come to appreciate Wande Coal all over again and take notice. 

Mavin Records is already telling everyone with this jam that 2013 ain't gonna be easy oooooo. Pretenders had better run for cover. 

We particularly love the way the jam started- Here comes Big man Jazzy, original producer, excuse me omo e le..................

GOVERNORS VISIT SULLIVAN CHIME

GODWILL AKPABIO, GABRIEL SUSWAN, SULLIVAN CHIME & ROTIMI AMAECHI

In order to douse the unnecessary tension created by Governor Sullivan Chime's prolonged absence from work,  a few of his colleagues paid him a visit recently. Those who did were the Governors of Akwa-Ibom, Benue & Rivers States, Godswill Akpabio, Gabriel Suswan & Rotimi Amaechi respectively. The snow in the background atleast shows it is a recent picture. 

The aftermath of the visit atleast to show that he is alive and (well) is the picture above. 

Now if pictures don't lie, we know he is alive, so what's keeping him away from his office? It's going to 5 months already now.  And what's the true situation of his health? One would have thought that if the weight of governance is too much on his health or well-being, then the honourable thing to do, who have been to resign. That would have given him enough time and energy to heal. Apart from that even if he stills needs to get back to the hospital, his state would still have to take care of his medical bills. So what's the fear about? Or is it that, there is no one else in the whole of Enugu State, capable of running the State, except Governor Chime?

God save Nigeria. Get well soon GUV!

WELCOME TO THE WORLD ALIONA OKOYE

ALIONA & LOLA
The first picture of Lola Omotayo's new baby girl for her beau is out already. The cute girl-Aliona is seen on her mom's chest having the first feel of the world. 

We can bet, that the baby daddy, Peter Okoye is besides himself in joy with the birth of his own Ifunaya (LOVE) or better still his own Onyinye (GIFT) from God . 

For those who do not know, the baby's name origin is German/Russian and and it simply means ''the bright''. The English variant is Helen, which is from the greek Helene, who was the daughter of Zeus & Leda. Helene means the brightness, the torch, the sunray.  

BARACK & MICHELLE OBAMA- THE MOST STYLISH PRESIDENT & FIRST LADY IN A LONG WHILE?

 Do you all agree that the President of the United States of America, Mr. Barack Obama & his adorable sidekick, or better put wife are both said to be the most stylish couple in power in a very long time. We didn't come up with the title. Good old GQ, the award winning lifestyle magazine said it, but we seem to agree. Especially as it concerns Michelle. Have you all seen that red number by her favourite designer, Jason Wu that she wore for the inauguration ceremony? That is just one of the many winners that she had worn in the past years. The beauty of the dress is in its simplicity and the way it flows on the first lady. Simple & classy at the same time.

It's either madam first lady is a style guru by herself or a combination of her style and the choice of her stylist/designer(s), any which way it is. Michelle Obama is a winner any-day by many kilometers, or better put like some would say ''She's hot like FIRE!.

THE JASON WU SKETCH

BABY GIRL FOR LOLA OMOTAYO





Just like we announced a few days ago that the countdown was already on as par Lola Omotayo delivering her 2nd baby for Peter Okoye, one of the duo that makes up the group P-Square. We are happy to announce just like everyone else the birth of a bouncing baby girl. 

The new baby, whose name is Aliona & her gorgeous mom are both in good health.

The elated father of the new born Peter announced the birth of his daughter on the social media today. Apparently we think he helped assist in the delivery.

Congratulations to the couple.

No Iyanya please!” Tinsel’s Uru Eke answers ‘Ebuka’s 10 Questions’ on Rubbin' Minds Live


URU EKE & EBUKA OBI-UCHENDU
''No Iyanya please!” Tinsel’s Uru Eke answers ‘Ebuka’s 10 Questions’ on Rubbin' Minds Live

On the last episode of Rubbin’ Minds on Channels Television (21 January, 2013) host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu discussed the African Cup of Nations and The Future Awards National Enterprise Conference holding this Saturday, January 26.

But perhaps the highlight of the show was the interview with the next big thing on Nigeria’s acting scene – Tinsel’s Uru Eke. She has also been in Dark Side alongside leading man, Joseph Benjamin and Amina alongside Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and others.

The actress who moved from the United States late last year spoke honestly about her career, the Nollywood tradition and then was refreshingly candid in answering the trivia!

Do you wish you were sometimes Tonto Dikeh?
No (Laughter).  I can’t deal with that much drama.

You’ve heard about the Tonto-Iyanya-Yvonne Nelson love drama. Would you fight for Iyanya?
Oh, no way. Because he is not my ‘spec’ (laughter).


Who is a better actress - Rita Dominic, Genevieve Nnaji or Nse Ikpe-Etim?
(Long laughter) No you can’t do that to me. None of the above… oh, sorry I mean all of the above. All of the above please!

Who will you take home: Dbanj, Jim Iyke, Iyanya or me?
You, of course. You should know that already. We are both Okija now!

Amala or Ugba?
Ugba definitely. But I can't make it. I didn't go with my mum into the kitchen when she was making it.

Which actor won't you be caught dead with?
Babasuwe. I feel he will make me look like an idiot!

What is your state of mind right now?
That you don't ask me another question I can't answer.

Did you see the recent Channels documentary on the Ikeja police college? What are your thoughts?
Sad. I felt ashamed. So ashamed. I could go on…

If you had to be born again, what country will it be?
America. I love the United States. I love the country. The spirit. The vibe. I'll be moving there at some point.

What other talent do you have, singing?

None. Maybe dancing. Yes, I'd like to dance for Psquare. That would be fun!

Rubbin’ Minds is a production of Y! TV and shows every Sunday at 3pm on Channels Television. For more information, visit @YNaijaTV on Twitter or www.ynaija.com/tv. The show’s hashtag is #RubbinMinds

JIDE & BISOLA TOKAN'S WEDDING CEREMONY

BISOLA DEJONWO & OTUNBA DEMOLA SERIKI
THE GROOM & HIS ADORABLE BRIDE(JIDE & BISOLA)
We were at the nuptial ceremony of the latest couple in town at the weekend. Like you all already know, it was between Jide Tokan, a young business man (said to be into building & construction) and the first daughter of the only sister of billionaire industrialist, Chief Rasaq Akanni Okoya of the Eleganza Fame. Wosilat Seriki's daughter Bisola Dejonwo, was finally joined in holy matrimony to her beau Jide at the palatial Olorunisola Compound of her uncle, located along the Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos.  D-day was Saturday, January 19, 2013.

The gorgeous mother of one, was led into the arena by her step-dad, Otunba Demola Seriki, looking angelic. The groom in a 3 piece blue suit, looking fantastically dapper, came to the venue of the ceremony with a group of his friend all looking cool in their suits, having on their eyewear, which gave them the air of top security officials making sure their own was well protected and covered. To show that he was a man of the people, many of his young friends, most of who are still single attended in large numbers and were the cynosure of all eyes.

The ever exquisite looking mother of the bride, Wosilat Seriki, was looking as gorgeously beautiful as ever and it was obvious from her countenance that it was a day that she had been looking forward to, for a long while now.  Former minister of the Federal Republic, Otunba Demola Seriki, performed the role of the father of the bride admirably, it was obvious for all to see that he dotes on his step-daughter and seem to have a connection, a good bond with his son-in-law.

QUEEN NIKE & HUSBAND,DR SOLEYE ADMITS TO SEPERATION


To those in the know, the admittance by Dr Tunde Soleye & Nike that their marriage might have hit the rock is not a new gist or something new. For the privileged few, it's something they had known for a longwhile now.  In order to stop the speculation at a point last year, they the couple went to several length to debunk the stories that the marriage had broken down irretrievably, to the extent that they even managed to go to an event together, this was to create the impression that all was well. 

Now after only a few months, the couple have admitted openly that the center could no longer hold together, not only that, that they have been leaving apart for a while now. The gorgeous ex-Queen after admitting they are both leaving apart, went on to say they are both working on the marriage. Reasons for the marriage breakup are still sketchy, but as soon as we have the full information, we would inform our readers. 

From the little we are hearing, there is a joint statement about the situation upcoming. Which should atleast explain things from the couple's perspective. 

CHECK OUT THE ADORABLE NOAH PETER ODEMWINGIE

Noah Odemwingie is only just a day old and the little lad is already looking so cute. Here is a picture of the adorable new born boy just hours after his birth. No wonder the dad scored just a few hours to his birth on Saturday. Needed to get the job done to go see his missus. 


CONGRATULATIONS TO MR & MRS JIDE & BISOLA TOKAN


Last week and then Saturday, January 19, 2013, would be days to remember for a very long time for the new husband & wife in town.  Saturday, was the day Jide Tokan officially made the former Bisola Dejonwo, the first daughter and child of Wosilat Seriki, the only sister of billionaire industrialist Chief Rasaq Akanni Okoya of the Eleganza fame, his wife. 

As to the finer details of the high society wedding we are still gathering all the details. We can tell for free that the ceremony was at the Olorunisola palatial edifice of the bride's uncle. We are working on the pictures and should post before this evening. 

Congratulations to the couple.
