Runway to Redcarpet: Omotola Jalade Ekeinde rocks Vonne Couture gown at Lagos Premiere of Last Flight to Abuja

Omotola oozed ’50s glam at the Friday 3rd August premiere of Last Flight to Abuja premiere which took place at the Silverbird Cinemas in Lagos.

Omotola who stars in the movie rocked a black dress with lace detailing by Nigerian label Vonne Couture. The Mamba Goddess dress was originally shown at last March’s Arise Fashion Week in Lagos as part of the label’s Black Mamba collection. Originally shown as a knee length dress, Omotola’s version was customized as a longer dress more fitting for a movie premiere.

Rapper EVE rocks Ankara playsuit…Are You Feelin’ Her Look?

Rapper EVE is the latest stateside celebrity to catch the African print (Ankara to us Nigerians) bug, she’s about 2 years too late with the trend but we welcome her anyway LOL.

Eve rocked the gold, green & purple playsuit with open toe ankle boots early this week in her hometown of Philadelphia where she hosted an ‘Intimate Hour’ with high school girls at the Uniquely You summit.

Honestly I’m not loving the length of the playsuit, I think shorter would have had more of that oomph effect, but she was talking to high school girls so I guess she was going for a more toned down and conservative look

USA beat Nigeria 156 – 73 in record breaking win at the London 2012 Men’s Basketball and Anthony Skinn gets play of the game!

Last night Team Naija men’s basketball team faced off with the World Number 1 Team USA. The Nigeria team which is made up of relative unknown players played against the likes of Carmelo Anthony, James Harden, Kobe Bryant and 2012 MVP Lebron James.

I don’t think anyone expected Nigeria to beat the US, but it was the way & manner that we were beaten that is most hurtful for we helped Team USA make history for the highest scoring game in Olympic history. SMH

In spite of the fact we got blown all the way out by the US, the play of the game went to Nigeria’s Anthony Skinn who can hold his head up with pride knowing he crossed over James Harden causing him to break his ankle. [See video after the jump]

What followed was a war of words between Nigerian’s and American’s and Ghanian’s who strangely enough  gloated in our loss, at least we qualified what have they done lately in sports? Msctew! Of course trust Naija’s if there is anything we know how to do it’s to put on a show of unity and go on the attack against anyone who comes at us. Check out some of the most interesting tweets form last night after the jump

P-Square act as Pallbearers as their mother is laid to rest in Anambra State

Earlier today (2nd August) twin pop stars Peter & Paul Okoye of P-Square and the rest of the Okoye family laid their  beloved mother & wife, Mrs Josephine Okoye to rest in their parent’s hometown of Anambra state, Eastern Nigeria. The twins and their video director brother Jude “Engees” Okoye were 3 of 6 pallbearers who carried their late mother’s coffin in what was no doubt an emotional farewell for the Okoye family.

Mrs Okoye who was very supportive of her son’s career and made a note of attending a lot of their shows,  passed away on the 11th of July in India, following a prolonged illness.

Because of the twins celebrity status security at the event was very tight. Also in attendance was Square Records artiste May D and other industry colleagues.

Ice Prince, Jesse Jagz & BrymO get their Twitter Accounts Verified. How the heck did Dencia get verified too?

You may be thinking Dencia who?! Well you are not alone, this was the same question most were asking on Twitter last night when news broke that popular Chocolate City boys Ice Prince, Jesse Jagz, BrymO and lesser known surgically enhanced (singer ?) Dencia got their twitter accounts verified.

Congrats to all the artistes on their verifications, but if you like me were thinking how the heck did Dencia with her 2 forgettable songs & 4,000+ followers get verified? Well I’ve got some answers…As far as twitter accounts go, getting verified is not a mark of popularity.

Olympics Condom Swag + 150,000 Condoms for London Games

And now the real games begin…

I don’t know if you have heard but over 150,000 condoms will be handed out at the London 2012 Summer Olympics. The Olympics are a 15 day event so that’s 10,000 condoms per day!

According to ESPN’s Body Issue:

The Olympic Village is basically one giant sex-fest. US women’s soccer player Hope Solo was especially vocal on the issue, claiming she slept with a celebrity (that she wouldn’t name) and that people are having sex right out in the open “On the grass, between buildings. People are getting down and dirty.”

At the 2000 Sydney Olympics 70,000 free condoms available, and that was not enough, an additional 20,000 condoms had to be brought in to meet demand. Since then 100,000 condoms have been made available but it was upped to 150,000 this year because…well it’s London LOL!
