Anita Iseghohi, MBGN 2004

Date was Sunday, June 25, 2017. The venue was Christ Embassy, Lekki Lagos, not far from the 4th roundabout along the Lekki-Ajah Expressway. It's just the right turning by the OANDO filling station on the express way.

The occasion was the baby dedication of the gorgeous daughter, the 3rd born child of esrtwhile captain of the senior national football team, Super Eagles in the person of Captain Fantastic, Joseph "JY" Yobo and his supremely gorgeous wife, the former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria 2008, the one and the only "Adaeze Stephanie Chinenye Yobo".

To show support at the very impromptu occasion, friends and family members all came looking exquisite to the short ceremony which was officiated by one of the female pastors at the church, who did a marvelous job stirring the people up nicely. Men the choir could sing like angels!!!

Some of those we saw at the church were the equally gorgeous and very stylish Caroline Danjuma, who came along with her kids. Truth be told Caroline was totally on point in her classy burgundy top on rainbow coloured pant ensemble and that "sculpted body", mama miaaaa hmmmmmmm....mad on point, was shown off with much aplomb.

We also saw one of the nicest persons on earth, who though a former beauty queen too, "she was MBGN 2004 then" and now at 32 and with 4 kids, would still win a beauty pageant hands down any day and anytime, that's the exquisitely gorgeous "Anita Queen Iseghohi".

Also at the church looking supremely regal in her royal blue outfit, with her new baby in tow was none other than the tall and beautiful Dabota Lawson of the Dabota Cosmetics fame, she seem to have gotten her groove back totally.

Mma Bakassi, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa was there too, looking as smashing as expected, so also were the 2 grandparents, looking very good, Mrs Abigail Igwe, Adaeze's mom wore a stylish sequinned black top on a black pant and heels.

Respected legal practitioner and APC chieftain in the Niger Delta and close family of the Yobos, Mrs Joy Nunieh-Okunnu was also in attendance with her gorgeous daughter.

We loved that yellow outfit as worn by Orisafemi's wife Nabila, who was also present, but she later changed to another sweet short black number later to come to the house.

Mrs. Wendy Ephraim Faloughi, wife of the billionaire oil and gas tycoon and chairman of Sovereign Trust Assurance, Ephraim Faloughi was also in attendance, she being the baby's godmother did all that was required of her very happily. Her stylish outfit topped with the beautiful fascinator, was the definition of sophistication.

There were others there too that we didn't know.

After the church dedication, the whole crew then headed to the "fancy pink palatial edifice" of the Yobos not too far away, for what was supposed to be brunch, but which lasted till about 7pm.

There was much merriment and backslapping as the deejay churned out good jamz to the delight of all, as barbeque and food were served heartily.

Even at a point the ladies decided to honour the dance floor with some movements Lol. Boyyyy !!!! Some of these moms can still move oooooo, Adaeze and Caroline are both dancing queens anyday.

Who was that, that came much later with her gorgeous daughter in tow, twas none other than ex-beauty queen Anna Banner, 22 MBGN 2013.

In all, it was fun and fun galore.

Kudos to the Yobos!

The brand Vanskere is undoubtedly one of the best fashion brands in the country, which is totally dedicated to the male folks. They are known especially for exceptional tailoring and very clean lines. Their new collection, which was recently released, reflected again their undoubted ethos.

This new collection is tagged the "Afropolitan 3 piece SS 17 Collection". It is the brand's own interpretation of the regular 3 piece. The 3 piece here speaks of 2 tunics and a pant.

According to the creative director of the brand, "Evans Ekere", they were able to come up with a concept, where one can have 2 tunics that can be worn interchangeably with one pant, without having to make another, which is cost effective.

The collection is targeted at the conservative but matured man and can be worn as either casual wear or more formal attire.

The collection was modelled by top Celebrities likes of veteran actor and broadcaster Patrick Doyle, top actor and writer Kalu Ikeagwu and top Nigerian filmmaker Femi Odugbemi.

It is now obvious that if you don't have the intellectual capacity or the expected knowledge or the acquired wherewithal or immense resources at the disposal of BRF, you don't go after the Minister for Works, Housing and Power in the negative, in the person of the former Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN or else.

In what is akin to a collosal clap back of the mightiest order, he just responded to a clap back by the house which had tried to paint that he was just an unneccesary noise maker and a liar.

In his delivery and response to them, he shut them down totally in the most intelligent way, making the bunch look colourless, bereft of ideas, uncouth and not knowledgeable at all- "Nigeria is in trouble if NASS mistakes budgetary appropriation for cash!!!!"

Imagine that the Minister had to school the legislators on the difference between budget and cash? Something that they should have been very conversant with?

We caught up with the popular politician and philanthropist, known to most as Mma Bakassi, but better known to all as Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, just yesterday at Christ Embassy Church, Lekki, Lagos at the baby dedication of the gorgeous daughter of now retired former Captain of the National Football team, the Super Eagles, in the person of Joseph "JY" Yobo aka captain fantastic and his supremely lovely and very well mannered ex-beauty Queen wife, Adaeze Stephanie Chinenye Yobo, MBGN 2008.

The dame, who is not a day younger than 71 years old, still has the poise, elegance and sophistication of someone half her age. And to add to it all, her style sense is still top notch.

She has won several style awards for her age class several times over. For Florence Ita-Giwa, good form is something she doesn't toy with and not relent in.

At every occasion we have seen her over the years, she has represented with supreme panache showcasing good style and Oomph with careless abandon. That could only have been possible by virtue of years and years of doing it great and honing ones skills.

She's known to have some of the best designers and tailors, both local and international on her speed dial and at her beck and call, and one of the secrets that we found out is that, she prefers some of the best from Beirut in Lebanon where she flies to quite often, either to get the most exotic of fabrics or to commission some new "eat your hearts out collection" to dazzle all and sundry.

This her lace outfit with the gorgeous applique, is simple but classy, yet not outrageous for someone in her 70s who is still consciously classy.

Kudos to the original Mma of style.

The major highlight of these year's edition is that our own Wiz, the one and only Star Boy, Wizkid won another award again! 
This is the consecutive year for the young man as per winning a BET and especially in a year that has been exhilarating in everyway. It's been one good news after the other for the Nigerian. All the collaborations are all gradually yielding fruits and more awards might be coming in. 

As much as the award show is the focus, the other part many always look forward to is the style/fashion part. And the stars like they are known to do went overboard to make impressions they had wanted to pass across. 

Check out those that caught our attention.

As expected it was as hilarious as it should be. Not only that, it was also very colourful as the guests all did their best to look good. Venue was Eko Hotel and Suites, Day of event was Sunday, June 25, 2017.

It's obvious there's a serious battle for the title of "the crown prince of comedy in Nigeria" and one of those vying seriously for the title is most definitely Akpororo.

Every thing about the dude is comedic. His movements, his gestures, his delivery, just about everything is made for laughter. You cannot seem to get enough around him. Kudos to the dude.

All the supporting comedians and even the headliner himself-Akpororo did super well and those who attended apparently got value for their money as they laughed and laughed and we are too sure that many bones were cracked and would need attention afterwards.

Many of the other comedians came to give their support also as guests, especially the veteran comedic geniuses likes of ailing Julius "the genius" Agwu who came with his gorgeous wife, the uncommonly funny Okey Bakassi, who came looking totally hilarious in his Aso Oke danshiki garb, YAW was there also, so also was Ayo "AY" Makun and very many others. We saw Funke Akindele, Seyi Law, Woli Arole, Acapela, Osama, Kenny Blaq, LAFF Doctor, Ovie and others.

We also spotted a few other guests, likes of former 1st lady of Lagos, Dame Abimbola Fashola, who as a mother of all makes it a duty to attend these shows, we also saw rising actress Peggy Ovire showing off those super long legs of hers, BBN 2017 contestant Uriel "the shapely" Oputa was around too, so also was actress and OAP Destiny Amaka, who has since lost all those her curves for a more lithe and healthier outlook and form and very many others.

Waje and friend

Omawumi for us is a gift of heaven for Nigeria. She's a super talented singer/musician/performer, a consummate one at that who is very blessed by the creator with her very own special gift that's so unique to her.

We particularly love her afrocentric vibe and energy which is always ever obvious in her sound. Which also really shows she's very proud of her heritage and wouldn't sell it on the platform of cheap popularity, like many do now.

Her voice is awesome, her command of her craft is exceptional to say the least and her stage craft totally mind-blowing to add to it all.

So on Thursday, June 22, 2017 at the Terra Kulture, her friends, admirers and fans alike gathered together to celebrate the launch of her new album titled, "TIMELESS", which means sound to reflect the evergreen nature of her essence and delivery.

We saw her best pal of life, Waje Iruoje there giving massive support as was expected of her, we also saw Debola Williams of Red Media, ace designer Ohimai Atafo, dance hall/galala legend Daddy Showkey, super great musician and producer Corbhams Asuquo, Tosin Martins, fellow MTN fame contestant and actual winner of the competition, Timi Dakolo, Yets Asika, veteran designer Data Okorodudu, former music association boss Tony Okoroji, top event coordinator and owner of Enthyst Events Ndidi Obioha, Noble Igwe of 360 Nobs and very many others.

As expected, Omawumi the singing minstrel and consumate performer gave a good account of herself, taking the crowd through the songs on the new album to the delight of all, especially showing why many love her to bits as a good performer.

We were there to cover the event in dazzling colours.

Family Portrait
The very gorgeous Erelu Angela Adebayo

The former executive Governor of Ekiti State (in fact the first executive Governor of the state who ruled from 1999 till 2003) and a top chieftain of the APC Otunba Niyi and his lovely wife, Erelu Angela Adebayo are getting set to host the world come August of 2017 as their beloved son takes the plunge into matrimony. 

The former Governor and his madam would most definitely roll out the drums and the red carpet on behalf of their only son-Dotun.

One half of the very fashionable Indian-Canadian socialite sisters, Jyoti Matharoo clocked 33 a few days ago and like they are known to do, both had massive fun celebrating each other.

To make the day memorable for both sisters especially the birthday gal, they both (they are like Siamese twins always everywhere together) flew from North America, in Canada to be more precise to idyllic Spain, in beautiful Valencia & Barcelona to mark the happy day.

It must have been some helluva fun, judging from the colourful and funtustic pictures we came across, as both sisters are seen lounging and soaking up the sun like some kinds of goddesses, relaxing after much adventures.

Both sisters are well known for not compromising in any way and manner on what pleases them, be it fashion, fun and lifestyle. They are unrepentant mistresses of unbridled fun and enjoyment, who lives the jetset life (Ibiza, St.tropez, Monaco, Miami, Las Vegas etc) without any form of apologies to anyone whatsoever.

Much has they have faced much troubles in Nigeria and the avalanche of bad press that followed, it's like their past troubles are what it just says,.......... past.

So they both seemingly, have gotten their groove back on.


Dr Demola Adeleke is late Isiaka Adeleke's younger brother and also a brother to Davido's billionaire dad, Deji Adeleke.

He is the PDP candidate for the next upcoming election to fill the post left by his late elder bro, the former Governor of Osun State known very well by his moniker "Serubawon" which means scare them.

Didn't know he is a damn fine dancer until we saw this hilarious video.

Check it out. 


There's no doubt about who Sir John Obayuwana is. The man at the helm at Polo Ltd, Nigeria's number one luxury, lifestyle brand that sells some of the best watch and pen brands in the world, likes of (Rolex, Roger Dubuis, Longines, Frederique Constant, Cartier, Chopard, MontBlanc etc) in Nigeria, has held us all under his super magic spell unobstructively for so long, mesmerising us continually and unabatedly.

Sir Obayuwana, is the dandy dad (daddy yo) of the equally super stylish, Jennifer Obayuwana, who is better referred to as the underboss of her dad's brand, where she has brought loads of "oomph" since she came on board a couple of years back as an Executive Director.

When you talk about style and the purveyors of it in the extreme form, this "gentleman par excellence" has it, in over abundance. In fact everything about him defines it, he defines the phrase "cognoscenti" with every fibre of his being.

You need to see him at work, dressed to the nines in very sophisticated pieces, with a time machine of class to add to the whole ensemble for you to better understand what we are on about. It's most definitely not only an out of work thing with him. For he is always on point at all times, never out of place. Very finicky to a fault.

The rumour has been rife. It has gotten the media into overdrive with speculations. Musiliu Obanikoro himself has not helped matters at all. He has been hobbnobbing with the former opposition members, while still claiming to be member of his party. It's like he is intentionally playing a game.

From all indicatioms he is APC in spirit and soul, but maybe not yet bodily.

Many have thought that finally after all the intentional deflections of many weeks, that the former PDP perennial governorship contestant and former Defence Minister during the reign of Dr. Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan might have finally jumped ship and has again gone to pitch his tent with his mentor again in the person of ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu's APC.

Those who could read body language very well had predicted the move since, but apparently MUSILIU OBANIKORO, intentionally wanted to mix the people for a while first, whether to gauge their mindset before doing what is obvious that he would most definitely and some say certainly do.

Some have also speculated that this move, might also be a way by some bloc, to send signals somewhat to the incumbent action Governor, in the person of his excellency, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, who has so far defied everyone's description has he seem to be in such a hurry to obliterate for good, not for bad, every record of achievements made by all his predecessors combined, except maybe Alhaji Lateef Jakande who was exceptional during his reign and time.

Bella & elder sister Oyin

By June 30, 2017 Belinda Adenuga-Disu, better known to most as Bella Disu, the gorgeous and brilliant 2nd daughter (some say favourite child) of reclusive billionaire, Otunba Dr. Michael Agbolade Adenuga, "Dr Mike Adenuga for short of the Globacom fame, would have assumed the role of a Non-Executive Director at the biggest construction giant in Nigeria, Julius Berger Nigeria PLC.

She was one of the 2 new directors the company announced were coming on board very recently. 

It has been a steady but sure, slow but well assured career trajectory for this gorgeous but very quiet lady, since she arrived back to Nigeria after her studies in the United States a few years ago. If all goes well, maybe or most likely she might be the one to take over the reigns of her dad's conglomerate (fingers crossed).

Ace comedian Ayo Makun aka AY, didn't allow the recent fiasco that had happened a few days before this premiere disturb him or even slowed his strides at all.

The premiere was done to usher in the latest installment in his venture into movies, this particular one is tagged "10 days in SunCITY" which was done with a lot of fanfare, with guests attending in torrents

Venue of the premiere was the Federal Palace Hotel, Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, Lagos, and day was Saturday, June 17, 2017.

Some had speculated that AY's wife might not be in attendance due to the hoopla that had occurred days before the event, but the naysayers & bad belle people were thoroughly disappointed as she was at the occasion in her stylish glory and looked as stunning as ever.

We covered the event for your viewing pleasure.
