WEEKEND LUV - THE TWICE AS NICE EDITION


Models of the Week: Georgina Edewor Thorley – Contestant, Britain’s Next Top Model & Unidentified Male Model (I'll just name him hottie) from Ozwald Boateng fashion show in Accra

Hey people!
What’s up? As always, I hope u had a great week! Mine was good….just work, work and more work! I am not even feeling well today but I still have to go to…you guessed it...work!!!
So what’s new? Did anyone do anything exciting? Travel somewhere exotic? Meet your future love…lol? Fill us in!
I am really grateful for this year so far tho! Everything has been going really well and I really thank God!
Anyways, here is Weekend Luv – The Twice As Nice Edition.

Blogs
Feels Good 2 B Home
I genuinely like this blog! I love it when people blog about things they are clearly passionate about….she features a lot of exclusive nollywood pics and info as well as other African entertainment topics. Check on it!

Ms Nu Booty
Interesting blog. She doesn’t shy away from any hot topics….I might not really agree with some of the opinions but that is why I luv it and love blogs in general….we can just agree to disagree!

What’s Hot
Cranberry introduces us to the ‘Front Row Girl’. HOT!

I am highly surprised that no one told me that there was a Nigerian chick on the last edition (Season 2) of Britain’s Next Top Model. Nigerians are usually on top of things when it comes to identifying our people…lol.
Anyways, Georgina Edewor Thorley is actually Nigerian/British; she participated in the Season 2 of Britain’s Next Top Model. She was actually one of the favourites but was eliminated about half way through the season. I watched the show recently and I have to say that she did well! She was really friendly and didn’t try to be too ‘extra’ for the cameras like some of the other girls. In case u are wondering, Georgina grew up in Lagos and has a twin sister named Kessiana.
Here are some of her pics from the show.




Beyonce and J-Lo donate their jewellery to 'Raise Your Right Hand Ring for Africa' program. Beyonce personally decided to have her $10,000 donation directed towards Toyin Subair’s Link-A-Child Foundation (Website & Blog) . She visited orphanages which benefit from Link-A-Child during her trip to Nigeria in October 2006 and is honouring her promise to continue supporting the cause.
I think it’s commendable that she is buttressing her words with actions.
While we are on the topic of Beyonce, can someone explain this her armpit-baring new pose. The thing is rather serious! I like to call it the ‘ori mi oooo’ pose lol
Watch out this pose on facebook tho...I know some Nigerian girls will see it and just have to 'give them' lol
See Pics:


Here are some more pics from Ozwald Boateng at the CatWalk the World – Fashion For Food show in Ghana.
Luv it!
Ozwald is the hotness!


Here is the album cover for 2Face's new album Grass 2 Grace. Nice one!


Hits
Here are the songs I am feeling right now!
I really hope that listening to these encourages u to listen to Nigerian music and support the artists by buying their albums.
Nigerian musicians are on the grind! They are really delivering with some top-notch tunes. Anyway if you don’t have these albums make sure u buy them ASAP

FaZe – Independent – This album is 100% amazing!
Ruggedman’s new album – the one with Club Rugged and Ruggedy Album…luv it!
2Face – Grass 2 Grace – Slamming!
I’ll have some more recommended albums next week!

Infinity – Olori Oko
This song is absolutely amazing!
The vocals are on point, the lyrics are meaningful, what more can I say.
Infinity is a really talented group! They performed at the Future Awards about a week ago and blew everyone away with their talent! Their album is definitely worth buying.



FaZe – Letter To My Brother
This is such a heartfelt song! We can all guess who it is directed towards….
I just feel this song! Give it a couple of listens and I’m sure u’ll feel it too….
Wow! FaZe has really blown me away with this new album – it’s a classic! Buy it!
Thanks naija-man

*If you want these songs, download them now as I will not reupload or email them. Thanks.

Anyways, have a fabulous weekend!
Stay blessed.

I don't understand that Beyonce's pose. Good to hear that she is doing positive things though.

Mona said...

Jola Naibi said...

I agree with favoured girl...you should have your own mag...I'd gladly subscribe...just wanted to pop in to say thanks for posting that Infinity song...I had never heard of them (that's why I call you my go-to girl for Naija)...and now the song is my favorite song of the moment...powerful!
Enjoy your weekend!

Mona said...

OOOOOOOOOOOOOh u put the infiniti song! :D (Who's a happy bunny)

Lolita said...

Nice issue, love the work being done by Toyin and co. that is a charity after my own heart.

About B, in the States, there was an article published in some magazine, US weekly or one of those gossip mills that she had surgery done to her armpit to take out excess fat and they showed a picture of something that looked like scarring. SO, I guess she is trying to show the world that no such thing took place!

Who knows!

Plus depending on the angle pictures can sometimes come out distorted!

Bella,
The British based model in Ozwald's show is "Toby". He's a mixture everthing black, white, carribean and is very down to earth. Ozwald is a very strong designer. I enjoy his work and Chichi of "Feels Good 2 be Home" is definitely on point. She's also a sweetheart and manages three great sites! Good choice for posting and I'll enjoy the songs this weekend.

dezhare said...

now, that boy/man is hottt!!, the last 't' for tasty...

BNTM is painful to watch, not sure which is more puke inducing, the random judges or the wannabe tyra....

as for beyonce, I love her, but her poses of late have been a little look-at-me please....could it be to steal back some of the light jennifer hudson is stealing...suxx!

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

The ampit thing is rather worrying - quite possibly when you raise your hands u tend to thin out, maybe shes looking for that more thinner look.

Its always good to see people following their words with action.

Vera Ezimora said...

Ooh, Bella you're good. I was just watching Access Hollywood yesterday and it talked about Beyonce and that her pose. Of course, Naija chics will definitely be doin it too. Oga o

bitchy said...

I think it is a cute pose(Beyonce), it reminds me of Marylyn Monroe back in the day.

Justme said...

Daddy's Girl said...

LOL at Beyonce's armpit-baring pose... I used to find her annoying but I'm liking her now cos she does some CRAZY over-dramatic things. Like, what is that pose about?

Bella, you're used to hearing it, but... great post.

Oge said...

Impressive.. I love that song by infinity.. I had never seen it before...the visual are so powerful.
I just stumbled accross your blog, and I think you are doing a good job at representing the African/Nigerian entertainment industry.
Keep doing what you do!
