Red Carpet | Omotola representing at the 2011 MOBO’s in Scotland

 

A few days ago Omotola Jalade Ekeinde walked the red carpet of the 2011 Screen Nation Awards at the Indigo O2 in London. The actress was there to collect her award for West African Actress of the Year. Omo-sexy beat the likes of Jackie Appiah, Genevieve Nnaji and Funke Akindele to win the award.

A few weeks ago Omotola Jalade Ekeinde was at the MOBO Awards in Glasgow, Scotland.

Doesn’t Omotola look svelte and toned? That dress was a good choice…and in black too! Sharp girl…black always hides a multitude of sins.

Word of advise to Omotola…get in touch with Gene’s PR girl & hire her! These are the only photos of Omotola at the awards I was able to find online…it looks like it was taken with someone’s mobile. Such a shame cos there are loads of professional red carpet photos on UK blogs of lesser known UK celebs. Omotola’s PR people need to get it together!

And notice how the fans in the background are not even sending her…How dare they?!

Other than that this hot mama is looking good…Hope better photos are released soon.

Correction: Omotola was not at the Screen Nation Awards held last week in London. But huge congrats to her for winning West African Actress of the Year beating the likes of Genevieve Nnaji, Ghana’s Jackie Appiah & Funke Akindele.

Big Things Poppin’ | Genevieve Nnaji parties with Rosario Dawson & Christian Louboutin at the 6th Annual Raisa Gorbachev Foundation Gala

A few days ago I told you Genevieve Nnaji rocked a stunning Dolce & Gabbana gown to a Charity event in the UK. Well I have more deets on said event. It was the 6th Annual Raisa Gorbachev Foundation Gala, a white tie held every year in the UK by former leader of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev in honour of his late wife who passed away from leukemia.

Gene who was dressed by italian designers Dolce & Gabbana, knocked back champagne, did her bit for charity, all while looking effortlessly fabulous as she hung out with Hollywood A -Listers like Rosario Dawson, Stephen FrySir Ben KingsleyAnna Friel & celebrated designer of one of the most coveted shoe brands in the world…Monsieur Christian Louboutin…Lucky girl!

Gene & Christian Louboutin

Hats off to Genevieve’s PR person…Vanessa Amadi…the chick is working OVERTIME! Making sure our girl is photographed at such high profile events, soon she would be “dating” some hot Hollywood hunk, starring in a blockbuster…and going to the Oscars. Let the church say AMEN.

Dayo Adeneye debunks claims of rift with friend and business partner KeKe Ogungbe

 

A couple of days ago I put up a post about rumours of a split between media personalities & music industry heavy weights Dayo Adeneye & Kenny Ogungbe. The story had swirled the web for a couple of days, and was originally reported on Yemoja News.

Anyways the story most have gotten back to the duo because earlier today Dayo took to his facebook page debunking the story. Here’s what he had to say:

Friends,pls do not encourage those MORONS trying to spoil our good name/brand by helping them spread the false rumours.Keke and myself remain the best of friends and biz partners.We have been friends since the days of garri n ewa agoyin and would never ever let money come between us.There is no iota of truth to the rubbish being circulated on the internet.God bless.

So I guess I’m a “Moron” for posting on it…oh well **Kanye Shrug**

Seriously though, I’m glad to hear it was just a silly rumour, Keke and D1 have been very instrumental to the growth of the Naija music industry…it would be sad to see them split up for whatever reason.

Now on to the next piece of goss!

Looks like our naija celebs are getting a whole lot more comfortable expressing their personal lives publicly. What with all the hand holding and making out at events. I say bring it on…more fodder for us less famous to gossip about ;)

Check out Olu Maintain (Yahozee) stepping out & holding on tight to an unidentified chick…his new flame perhaps. The lipliner on the babe is SERIOUS! Chai!

 

Over in a more long term relationship…rapper Ikechukwu was spotted making out with his fiancee, model Sarah Ofili at a surprise birthday bash she threw in his honour in Lagos.

Bubbling Under | Jarmeu

Jarmeu‘s 1st two singles Am Bad & E No Easy say a lot about his musical dexterity. Listen to the 20 something year old budding artiste  and it can easily be seen that Jarmeu possesses PassionTalent and Bravado.

In his own words, Jarmeu believes he is “venturing into music in an age where common-play and generic rhythms are the order of the day and  that as an artiste one has to evaluate where he stands.”

Not only does he perform, but he also arranges and produces. He is currently being managed by Bonafyde Inititative and DRS (A Nigerian and UK based outfit respectively), he is signed as an artiste under Dee-R-S Tunes.

Listen to his stuff after the jump, and let’s have your thoughts on it…
