I am on a mission... once I accomplish it..... for now top 5 is cool hahaha :)

truth said...

Sooner or later he was going to leave anyway. He didn't quite make it as my idol pick. With his good looks we should still see more of him in the future.

What's up with the gele and jeans???!!!

Inuke Omotola Davis said...

Please I can be a bonafide hater but that show looked A1 to me I dont know what all those imbeciles were ranting about. Is that the organizer in black, why is the girl almost hugging her if thre was so much tension.

Whose clothes were all those sef. I am feeling the shhts very madly! Arieta and co, what job did you actually do? Men you guys are alright sha

This ERIC boy no sabi sing...

Everyone Loves a Naija Girl said...

Awwww...the pictures from Nigeria's Next Top Model look amazing...I wish I could have gone lol.

Icy said...

Omowunmi has to win this if not.. that is STR OJORO.

The shots on the NNTM looked hot. Nyceeee shots photographer! kudos.
Erhmm GELE and jeans and tanks??? FOR REAL whoever started that, omo reverse it. I've seen it more than 2ice and IT IS NOT FASHIONABLE. nice idea but some things eh, are better left as ideas... faux pas YES please.

RAWK ON BELLA!!

koshie said...

My God! i just listned to all the idols for the first time and boy...i don't know if i should go on or not. eiiiii lord. i think i will honestly reserve my comments

Adaure said...

the pictures are very very nice -- but a big MBA to the gele and jeans-- hmh-- if i see any girl pulling that stunt in Lagos -- na beating she go chop.

~Mimi~ said...

the NNTM pictures are nice, not reflecting what really went down or what we were made to believe went down.

but i agree with the fashionable people who have stated that the gele and jeans is a No-No.

Dixy said...

I was sad too when Eric left, but it was his time, thx for the memories dear, you rocked!

Anyone who thinks Timi is Idol worthy is tone deaf or blind or both!LOL!Major diction problems need to be sorted out before you take him outside Nigeria!!!

Anyway, I expect Timi or Omawunmi to win, if Temitayo's fans will finally recognise her flat voice.

Anonymous said...

I'm 100% behind Dixy. Although Timi has a good strong voice, he has serious diction problems- so bad u can hear it when he sings. Temitayo sounds like a lounge singer- really flat. Even if she wins (for whatever reason viewers vote), she wont go far. Omawunmi can sing -from the depth of her heart-even if she doenst win- she'll be a Jennifer Hudson and if she does win she'll be a Fantasia and a Jennifer Hudson in one. Jodie could sing also. Personally, I also think that Jerrilyn had a good voice (only she didnt exploit it at all)

tatafo! said...

chai! i can't believe Eric was booted off....but he has made a name for himself so nothing really spoil. So people please point out the Sandra lady to me abeg. I wan gbegborun small

Anonymous said...

I believe she is the one in glasses with the girl holding flowers but really there is not ONE worworish type person in those pics, everyone just looks SET! (unlike all the americana productions) I think those mama's should really work out their issues they might have potential.

Barbara said...

Well done. Bellastic Bella does it again! Gr8 to see some pix from the 'controversial' NNTM show. Nice, but i'm so not feeling the gele, tank & jeans combo... I mean since when?Next thing we know, it'll be a wedding dress & gele combo in place of a veil or tiara. Abeg thats totally wrong!!!
PS:I agree with tatafo, anybody know Sandra? Pls id her if she's in any of the pix.

tatafo! said...

@ Anon 2:00pm I totally agree with you, perhaps it's just the excellent photography, but the decor looked really nice and everyone looked stunning. Shey someone that was complaining spent 80 quid to buy dress for the event na. Jand girls always bring it. you know say yankee people dey too do worwor stuff (reunions et al) i guess jand people haven't had a taste which is why they were complainig so much lol. Not too say that bcos of that they should lower their standards.

Kpakpando said...

oh no not my eye candy Eric... how can he be gone? I wubs you boo.

The pictures are not telling the same 1000 words that we've already read about the NTM show. I think i'm going to renew my campaign against wearing sunglasses indoors and skinny jeans.

butterfliesandstars said...

Sunday's show was alrite, though some parts made me cringe. Have a problem with their song arrangements - some of the songs (like Sheryl's First Cut is the Deepest') don't need to be oversung!

Nice work Bella.

Koshie said...

Bella!!!!! please refresh the blog please.

Copido said...

I'm bcking Omawunmi to win. She can sing and she'll make a 'good package'.....As for Timi, I can't understand why he's still in the competition; I think he's not eloquent and his facial features?! Temitayo rocks too but I doubt she'll win

Soul said...

re: NTM, the pictures are not showing what arieta was saying, because she worked to put that together.

The girl in the green with the promoter was not a competitor.
She had entered the competition but was unfortunately not chosen as one of hte finalists, she came back to help usher the event.

After the show before the winners were announced at almost 2 fucking am, the promoter presented her with a bunch of flowers and gave a speech on stage saying she would never reject that girl ever again.. and asking people to give her a round of applause.

i think many people do not understand that this show was arieta and a few other people's hard work..
That's why it worked. And if she didn't say anything people would presume that it was all the producers work, as they are now.

areagal said...

ABEGGi ICY and company & everybody saying the gele look is Razz, Its a runway look, RUNWAYYYYYYYYYYY awright. Its just like other big designers with their runway looks that u wont see anybody going 2 the grocery store with. It may not work for u but it was styling.. 4 what again?? RUNWAY! Some of u here do runway stuff and wear net dress and panties.. EHEN! so leave dem wit deir GELE & RUNWAY look. I agree it wont work in reality but the stylists were styling and trying to create something different. ZZZZZZZZiiiiiPPPPPPP it. Lets encourage each other & lift each other up. My people we like to complain oh! They tried oh! Clap for them oh! E no easy oh!Me am happy for anyone tryin oh! Dont make judgments esp. when ya weave is heavier than ur body! Its cute tho. lol y'all know who u are lol. thats all.

Anyone know this din of London guy? I think he might be Naija. Just checked out he's web site, and there are some really amazing pics. After all d drama on the blog over the last couple of weeks, "a picture speaks a thousand words". The show appears to have gone smoothly at some stage, and the setup looks abit professional, and the girls look great. u guys need to give your selves a pat on the back, and move on. Finally Kudos to the photographer for showing us all in good light.

Segun O said...

Go Bella Go Bella Go Bella!!! Why has it taken this long for the top model pictures to surface. Thanks all the same for the lovely pics. This must be a scoop as I haven't seen them anywhere else.

Funmilayo said...

Guys guys the GELE jeans is a catwalk thing!! Just similar to the wacky stuff you would find at any top desinger shows around the world. Amazing images!! keep up the good work bella.

Anonymous said...

@AREAGIRL..U ARE REALLY BECOMING BORING YOU KNOW.WITH THIS "WANNABE MOUTHY/HARD" PERSONA YOU SEEM TO ADOPT.
SWEETY THE NOVELTY WEARS OFF AFTER A WHILE,AND YOUR EXPIRY DATE CAME ON A LONG TIME AGO.

bukky said...

Really lovely pictures from the Top Model event!!! Gele jeans nice African \ Western concept. LOL

dupsy said...

I did pay good money to see the top model event show. And although the organisation could have been much better, with them keeping to time. The show really wasn't that bad, as the images would confirm. I guess up front u never get to see all the drama going on back stage. Nice one Bella.

In contrast, I think AREAGAL was the only one to speak to what so many of us really in the know already know.. that was a dignified attempt at couture. But what do you expect from yanks who are into 'joke-couture'... LOL! Stole that one from Miss Vinty. I almost barfed at the pc when some juve up there called you lot Fashionable! heheheheheeee

It goes without saying that true fashion DOES NOT fit into color coded lines, unless of course targeted toward the masses a.k.a sheep-herd, the kind of mentality you so often happily display here.

The only fault I thought I saw was the jeans didn't really accentuate the headgear but who cares, first try, good one at that, better luck next time. Maybe some colorful skirts or damask jeans (if you can envision that holler!) But like I said. It was semi-fierce as is.
Fashion is not for the foolish, it is for creative visionaries that can cross borders unseen before.

I care less what happened in the backend, it is industry wide in all sectors for things to be broken and patched up last minute. What is importint is how you appear to the customer. Anyone going to a naija show (or almost anything BLACK for that matter!) should know whats up from jump: 7pm = 10-12'ish! Unless reputed otherwise.

Finally, on the RUNWAY, rules do not apply! Rules are for the meek.

anon said...

Idols WA - Am missing out on this idols WA show as I am on Cable and not Sky. and it seems like a good show, shame.

Top model - Yeah go bella, nice pics. Checked out d web site, if he's Naija, i say Kudos to him as well.

DONT PLACE TOO MUCH OF A VALUE ON SOMETHING THATS NOT WORTH MUCH.

IF IT WAS BELLA OR SOME OTHER CAT THAT SAID MAYBE SOMEONES JEALOUS OF THEM...THEN ILL AGREE..CUS SHE IS FIERCE,FAB AND ALL THAT AND A BAG OF SMOKING CHIPS...

BUT AS FOR YOU??

aloted said...

Eric is just a fine boy..he didnt use his voice well. He has got such a cute smile!!!
Temitayo shld be out by now...i wonder what she is still doing in there.
Omawunmi has the voice and has the looks.
Timi can sing but needs SERIOUS packaging..
I hope either Omawunmi or Timi wins

Areagal said...

ANONYMOUS. U know me? Very good then. & why are u getting so worked up over
a comment.. ziiiiiip, yes I said it! & i'll say it once more ZZZZZZZZiPP! Take and easy and live a little. I was pointing out that we should be more positive and encouraging with one another and whats ur problem? Ignore me ok! and live a little.

kokolet said...

i totally agree with aloted... me o mo wetin temitayo is still doin there o!!!! abeg she should do quick and fade!!! Timi cannot speak properply..as aloted put it he needs serious packaging..im routin for omawunmi and i hope others do to, she is the 'IDOL'WestAfrica is lookin for nd people should start voting sensibly..in other words Temitayo should be given the boot!!!

hellish said...

on the contrary, if you have ever been to an european fashion show, what is on the runway is not considered wacky, but couture and the props just seek to enhance the theme of the event and the clothes.

i dont see any couture on gele, jeans and t-shirt.

Anonymous said...

the gele and jeans makes no sense...it does look tacky..
