THE ROUNDUP

Hey Everyone,
How was your weekend? Hope everything went well.
I had a very chilled laidback weekend.....didnt too much! Very relaxing though.
So do you have any new year's resolutions or have you broken them already? Let us know.

Here is a roundup of some of the hottest events and news....
ENJOY!

The Calabar Carnival and Parade was one of the most colourful and exciting events ever witnessed in Nigeria. Of course, Nollywood stars were not left out. Here are some **exclusive** pics of Nollywood's best, all decked up in traditional festive Calabar attire at the event!
You can see more pics of the Calabar Carnival and Parade , visit Calabar Girl's blog.
Thanks to Mildred for the pics!

Nollywood stars on their float


The Nigerian Fashion Show (NFS) has travelled all over the world over the last couple of months. So far, they have displayed in Lagos, Paris and now Washington DC. Here are some pics from the Washington DC show a few weeks ago. Designers featured included Modela, Henrietta Agboola's House of Henri (NFS Winner 2005) and Tessy Oliseh's Tesslo Concepts (NFS 2006 Winner).



Omotola Jalade Ekeinde is one of Nollywood's most celebrated stars. A testament to her popularity and impact is her status as a UN Goodwill Ambassador. Here are some pics of Omotola with her husband and children, Princess, M.J, Meriah and Michael.
Very cute family! I cannot believe she has 4 kids! She looks good.


The hottest new Lagos couple is Peter (from P-Square) and Lagos socialite, Lola Omotayo. Many people are kind of surprised by this couple due to their different backgrounds and the fact that Lola is a few of years older than Peter but that hasnt stopped them from boldly attending events together and other public displays of affection. I personally think they are a cute couple.
To find out more about Lola, click the second photo below .

That's it folks!
Let us know what you think about the Calabar Carnival, The NFS Show or whatever...
Have a FAB week!
Ciao

I really don't know what is going through Lola Omotayo's head but she has practically killed any chances of hooking up with a chassis guy ever again... i mean who wants Peter's from P-Square's leftovers? Especially in that Nigerian society where everything is so hierachical.

It just goes to prove that beauty does not equal class.

Daddy's Girl said...

I agree with you Bella: Lola and the guy from P-Square are cute together. I hope they stay together.

Omotola looks fabulous for a mother of 4.. they really are a cute family.

Lovely post as usual.

I just think we Nigerians are too judgemental for real!!! Does anyone of you really know who the Peter guy is apart from what we know from his songs that i'm assuming ya'll like anyway. I mean seriously, can we try to be a lil bit more open minded?

Bella naija I love your blog and read it often...keep up the good work!

On the topic of Peter and Lola Omotayo, I'm a naija in the U.S so I can't claim to be in the know about some of these naija artists, socialites or the like. What I do know is that public image is not always reflective of what people are really like. That said, the image P-square (someone with a name like that is bound to get a lot of flak) potrays may not be the most desirable as some people have commented but do know that people tend to attract their own kind and assuming that is not the case then may be it's a case of one man's poison being another man's meat(I know it's inverted)...as for me, I wish them the best!

Lola is beautiful, she can give Beyonce a run for her money.

Omotola's oldest daughter looks like she can be a bit of a diva.

tatafo! said...

omoT has some cute kids oh! and Rita Dominic is calabar right? or from around that area.
ditto @ what Dimples said, i really miss your daily updates :(

Funmi said...

Happy Nu Year Girl!

Wow OmoT looks good after popping out four kids! Love the way nigerians are now repping in the fashion industry. As usual you interesting blog:) keep up the good work.

EXCESSIVE-DIVA said...

@that annonymous that asked for openmindedness,,shioo..i dont shoot blanks from my arse.id heard the rumor and a whole lot else(and theres a lot) but refused to believe till now.typical of babes sha..once they feel they are getting old they just start hooking up with anything...God make her eye clear and if he no clear dats her hot cuppa..mrs.psquare..yukkk

@annonymous who spoke about hierarchy...u know book jare...after they finish using themselves i suppose her fineness will make some guy marry psquares ajeku..and if they marry..good luck to them and their psquarelets...

naijagal said...

Omigahd Lola - you are too pretty to be hanging with this wide spread nose dude - i mean so what if he has one or two hits out there - If he was any regular dude - no one would pay him no mind.

Women for suffer, all we get attracted to are all this thuggish looking dudes. Any way who knows maybe, he has a jayz type 2 litre coke bottle in his pants and makes her scream her heart out in bed. Abeg thats all that matters. If Halle Berry gave Ugly a chance, she wouldnt have suffered so much with all them pretty men she had.

Beyonce and Janet Jackson arent complaining - do ya thang Lola - Behind Closed doors only you know how he satisfies you :lol

funny chick
