MASSIVE RUNDOWN

Hey Everyone!
LOL! All the comments from the previous post were just so funny! I cant believe that I forgot some classics like clogs, bodysuits etc….Love it!
So how was your weekend? Mine was really nice! ~Thanks babes~
I got to meet some bloggers, such a trip….Love it!
So what did you get up to this weekend? Let us know…

There are so many Nigerian designers both at home and in Diaspora and I think that is such a great development.
Just goes to show that we are tres fabulous and very talented.
Buki Peters is a Nigerian jewellery designer as well as a fashion stylist.
She was born in Nigeria and moved to the US when she was 11. She enrolled in New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology in 2002 and has been working in ever since!
Check out Buki’s website – HERE
And a recent interview - HERE
Check out some of Buki’s pieces below







Entertainment Bits:
The ban of Nollywood actress and True Love West Africa covergirl, Ini Edo has been lifted. I don’t really watch Nollywood movies as much as I used to (I confess that I was an addict!) but I actually like Ini Edo despite all her overacting and incessant eye-rolling lol…Glad she’s back.

Here is an interview with Weird MC, she ‘explains’ why she is not married. Why do Nigerian women have to ‘explain’ why they are not married? I don’t even know why these ‘celebs’ bother answering some daft patronizing questions sometimes. I like Weird MC, she’s very individual and seems like she is definitely being herself. To hear her new single, click HERE

Baby News!!!!
Yes, I know some of these people had their babies months ago and I previously blogged about all the Nigerian celeb babies, wanted to do an update with the baby names etc...

“Top female actress, Caroline Ekanem is having the time of her life right now as her hubby is spoiling her silly as a result of having a baby boy for him.
The super rich big boy, Musa Danjuma, is the younger brother of board room guru and former Defence Minister, General Theophilus Danjuma.
Ever since Caroline met Musa Danjuma, a director in Southern Petroleum (a crude oil exploring company) her life has changed for the better.
The University of Calabar Diploma holder who used to live with her grandmother in Oke-Ira area of Ogba in Ikeja now leaves in affluence.
The actress, who had a quiet traditional engagement with Musa, a divorcee in Eket Akwa Ibom State last year has moved into her Duplex in Omole Estate, Ikeja, bought for her and the child when she delivered the baby boy for Musa.
The duplex which is said to be tastefully furnished with furniture from Italy has all the trappings of a king’s mansions (really?! LOL). The house gift came shortly after she delivered the baby.
It was gathered that the house has a small art gallery because Musa is a Commissioner of Art. He did not only buy Caroline a house, he also bought her two cars, Honda Accord and Mercedes Benz jeep.
It was also disclosed that very soon, Caroline will return big time to film production, as a studio would soon be put in place for her by her Musa. This would enable her do a lot of television production including documentaries, adverts and editing jobs.
According to a source, Caroline has moved in with her grand mother who helps wth the care of the baby . She also has two female househelps.”
LMAO! I am happy for Caroline’s marriage but Nigerian newspapers made LAWLLLLLLL! What is our business if she has 2 househelps LOL…OMG Only in Nigeria

Ex-Miss Nigeria, Sylvia Edem, who last year April in lagos got married to UK-based Chris Emechete, has joined the club of new mums.
The light skinned ex-queen delivered of her first baby, a girl on the 13th of July 2007 in a London hospital. The baby has since been named Chanelle Ada Emechete, and both mother and child are said to be doing well.

Desmond Elliot: This handsome top Nollywood star is probably the happiest man on earth today as his marriage of many years recently produced a set of twins, both boys.
The boys were named Denzel and Desmond at the dedication ceremony which took place in Ilupeju Bypass Lagos. (Denzel…for real? LOL)

Oge Okoye: This screen diva’s baby dedication came shortly after that of the Desmonds. It was held at St. Leo’s Catholic Church Ikeja, while the party was held at Do It All on Opebi. Her boy’s name is Chibuike. The Threatre Arts graduate of Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka is married to Stanley Duru, from Awomama in Imo State. The Holland based international businessman is said to be so generous that he presented Oge with a breath taking Jaguar jeep as a wedding gift (reallly??? lol).
“My lovely husband was so bowled over by my loving, romantic and charming nature that he immediately proposed. I exude the sort of charms that many girls lack and that is why my husband wasted no time in marrying me. Romance was the major weapon I used in clinching my Guy”, Oge disclosed.

Georginia Onuoha: She is one of the Nollywood’s sweetest and most adored actresses. The beautiful lady and her wonderful husband, Dr. Charles Igwegbe dedicated their baby girl, Maryann a week after Oge’s. Their families and friends were hosted at the couple’s magnificient home in Omole.

Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha: The beautiful down to earth talented actress also had her baby boy in April shortly after that of Georginia. She and the husband also hosted families and friends and looks exceedingy happy and grateful to God.

On the international scene, here are new photos of Kim Porter and Diddy’s twin girls, D’Lilah Star and Jesse James. They are cute but they look nothing like Diddy!

Tht's it for today!
Have a great week!!!
Those of you on holiday.....I hate y'all! LOL
Those of you working, we shall survive!
Ciao...
Kisses....

Anonymous said...

this your recent news is a tad bit all. We all know bout Desmond, Oge, Chioma etc babies at least 2 months ago. You need to be on point on your gist, lately some are a tad bit old :lol (no offense)

Confessions of a moody crab said...

lol!! This is really funny. Denzel and Desmond??? I can't stop laughing! LMAO!!!

Bella Naija said...

Damn! LOL!!
@Bella
Ko' Eazy at Anon 6:33pm.

just sayin' said...

What is so fantastic about caroline ekanem having a baby for Musa danjuma? The man actually lives in parkview estate ikoyi in a gigantic house plus several (i think 3 or 4) smaller houses on the same plot for I think wives/kids, etc. So living in Omole estate alone with your baby ain't anything to write home about.. Trust naijas to focus on the usual meaningless rubbish eg 2 househelps, furniture from Italy, jeeps etc. As if those are the issues that count. The bottom line is this is a woman who has had yet another baby for a guy who will not count her or the baby as his number one priority. What is there to celebrate? Oh well I guess if you are a desperate naija actress living with your grandmother this then must be a step up..

Bella must be PMSing.
Eh...Anon sorry oh, understand.
Eh...bella has a day job, this is not her bread and butter. While I see some ads on her page, I cannot confirm if she makes money from this "waka".
"So therefore" like she said, if you do not like her blog content, bounce. However, if Bella intends to do go into print media, well....

Picture me bouncing awayyyy.

Hey Bella Chill NOW :) Anon said no offense... Good post sha... BUt Na wa 4 Naija Jaguar jeep (Oge Okoye) def hasn't been made yet... BTW Bella by sayin u met bloggers I wld think u were in London but then The date says Monday already so I'm guessin ure in Asia / Mid East.. I'm in Japan also L8rz

Bella Naija said...

LOL...Seriously I didnt mean it in a bad way...I appreciate every comment and constructive criticism but some people relish in being negative. Besides, never said it was exclusive breaking news...I spoke about them most of them having babies months ago (when it happened) just found the baby names and newspaper's overly effusive gushing about the material things that the baby daddies purchased entertaining.

advice said...

Bella
U do not need to be explaining urself to those anon haters! When I read a post I don't like, I keep my mouth shut! If the blog in total offends me, then I stop visiting it. Not rocket science abi?

Where were we? Is dat Oge chick for real? And pls ask what her holland based (paperless) husband does for a living....?

Musa Danjuma- yep whoever says he lives in Parkview with 'outhouses' for his wifes & concubine is right. So Caro if you didn't make it there...go figure. But if you are happy with being a single mother albeit with Italian furniture and 2 househelps(wow, some achievement), I won't rain on your parade!

DONT BLAME CAROLINE.
NAIJA HAVE A LOT OF RETARDES STUPID REPORTERS AND JOURNALIST WHO PUT CELEB'S INTERVIEW IN SO MANY WORDS.

I DONT BELIEVE FOR A SECOND CAROLINE GAVE THEM ANY DAMN INTERVIEW BRAGGING ABOUT HER ACQUIRED WEALTH.

DOHHHHHHHH
CANT YOU READ BETWEEN THE LINES AND SEE ITS JUST ANOTHER FOOLISH RETARDED NEWS REPORTER, PUTTING OUT GIST HE JUST HEARD.

I USE TO JUDGE CAROLINE (ESP AFTER READING HER INTERVIEW WHERE SHE MENTIONED TUFACE AND THEN BRAGGIGN ABOUT HER LIGHT SKIN - I FELT LIKE SHE WAS SUCH AN AIRHEAD, TO TALK LIKE THAT) BUT I DONT ANYMORE COS I LEARNT ALMOST ALL THE INTERVIEWS OF HER THEY TWEEK IT, LIKE THE MANY OTHER CELEBS IN NAIJA. MOST OF THEM HATE THESE REPORTERS THEY DONT EVEN GIVE THEM THE TIME OF DAY TO GIVE THEM INTERVIEW, YET THEY'LL MAKE SOMETHING UP TO SELL PAPER.

FOOLISH IDIOTS. I CANT STAND NAIJA TABLOID REPORTERS. THEY ARE SO RETARDED.

African Gem said...

awww...i'm happy that they all know the importance of motherhood and have settled down to produce beautiful kids...
...but seriously Desmond why Denzel??? that's just wronggggggg....lol

Anonymous said...

Point of correction and in order not to miseducate, as per Caroline Ekanem's story, "Eket" is in Akwa Ibom and not Cross River State.

Kpakpando said...

Diddy's baby are really chopping their popsie's money sha, kai nenekwa nti! Thank God his girls don't look like him though.

@bella telling anon to bounce, LAWLING here!

As far as men donating sperm everywhere, they had better get DNA tests done, so the Abiola saga doesn't repeat itself

Anonymous said...

The baby to the left does look like Diddy (poor thing!). All she needs are those goofy teeth and a pair of sunglasses. Y'all chill till she's all grown. LMAO

Favoured Girl said...

I don't think the Weird MC interview was all about why she wasn't married. The editor or journalist just used that headline to get attention. The article also talked about her music but they didn't focus on that. It's just poor journalism - and it is irritating.

@advice: You sure are a trip!!!

Well... thnx for keeping it real.
