Photo of the Week: Geneveieve Magazine Editor, Betty Irabor at her 50th B-Day Party

Hi Everyone!!!!!!!!
I was trying to ‘dodge’ doing Weekend Luv this week because I am soooo sleepy. I went to bed really early last night so I ended up waking up at 2AM. I finally went back to sleep at 5AM.
Sooooo how was your week? This week went by sooooo fast, didn’t it? Wow! Anyways, it was a fun week. I didn’t do much but I enjoyed it all the same. Here is Weekend Luv - The Red Edition

The Blogs
Mandy Brown-Ojugbana’s Blog
OMG, I am sooo excited. She sang the song ‘Taxi Driver’ back in the day. Make sure u check out her blog!

Im A Babe said...

d mermaid story was hilarious but CREEPY!
hilarious in d sense that it sounds like evry other "mamiwata" story i heard back in elementary school in naija...no difference at all.
creepy in d sense that i dont kno if its a hoax or not....but u all have got 2 agree with me that many naija folks wouldnt mind tellin major lies just 2 get attention.

pls wats miss campus university..abi wat did they call it??? wats really up wit naija and its pageants????..they're really startin 2 look/sound like a big joke.

Ladybrille said...

"Banning" Ini Edo from acting because of "gross misconduct," "indiscipline" and "outright violation of professional duties"? What utter rubbish,stupidity and nonsense on the part of the "banners." Attempt to ban for "indecent dressing." Not crazy about Ini's dressing but come again??? What were Omotola, RMD and Genevieve's crimes when they got banned? Since when did the "banners" become the fashion police? What legitimate movie industry do you hear of them banning actress/actors for what they wear. There are no details for the factual basis of the "ban." This oshi is getting too much. The unfettered control by self proclaimed so called Nollywood watchdogs is out of control and unreal! By the way, what training/skills have been provided for stylist, costume makers or makeup artist to get Nollywood talents all prettied up? What about the Wardrobe budget? Does it even exist? Utter ridiculous nonsense,rubbish and stupidity and the idiocy of a "ban," especially on foolish irrational basis ought to stop! Who died and gave anyone the right to "ban" actresses/actors from earning their livelihood. I vex well well for this noisense!

chidi said...

betty irabor lloks nice for someone who is turning 50. good for her. & the mermaid thing was just scary i swear. I read it somewhere before & i found it hard to believe that it was real. & y bother banning ini-edo again??

Awoof said...

Lol at the Obesere selling crack and buying a "classic" Toyota Corolla...

On the flip side, what makes the "crack" sale business and rap business so appealing/inspiring to youths who want to "make it". Can anyone help me out here?

Vickii said...

Betty Irabor looks amazing for a woman who just turned 50!

Is 'taxi driver' the song that goes 'if you marry taxi driver, I don't care....'?

~Mimi~ said...

thanks Bella for the shout out!!!

and betty looks amazing!!!

and that throw some Ds on it guy...he gives me confusing reactions, dont know whether to laugh or cry!

Dimples said...

Thanks for all the info Bella..
Love Mandy's blog...my claim to fame of knowing a celebrity..lol...she sings in the choir @ my church.
Yeah man..saw Betty Irabor's birthday on TV..damn it those old folks had so so much fun.

Anyways hurry up sha...i'm looking forward 2 Monday.

STREETBRAND said...

Seriously loving the yoruba love song! Nice one!!

Anonymous said...

Can't believe that is T doing the black Jesus thing...LOL! Never would have guessed, he is actually quite quiet. LOL!

truth said...

Sola Allison's "Eji Owuro" has been around for a while. 'Nice to hear it again after a few years. Betty Irabor looks totally it. For those of you itching to know the secret, my take would be her happy marriage...amongst all others like the great genes and all.
The mermaid story definitely dates back to high school tales like 'madam koikoi' and 'hot hand'.Good luck to the lady and take note Bill Gates.

Hi Bella,

This is the first time i am droppinga comment on your site.

Absolutely luv the site. I am really luving the Yoruba luv song.

Icy said...

hahahahah oh my gosh Bella hahah Mammy water.. My gosh this here is the funniest thing I have ever heard.. Only in Naija for real! ah mean damn!

also used to have fish scales on my legs, because that was the most potent weapon I used to attract people to me, because they said I have fine legs, even up to my body.

There’s a way you will look at my body, and it will be different from what you used to see. There is this friend of mine that has everything that every man wants, but if we walk together, they don’t even look at her, they look at me. She would wonder what they saw in me, but I told her that she wouldn’t understand. I told her that if I should come to earth in my marine form, she will know she’s nowhere near me at all.
