DAKORE EGBUSON-AKANDE IS A STUNNER ON THE COVER OF BLANCK MAGAZINE.

She’s one of the faces and voices that makes my Nollywood experience meaningful, then she disappeared from our screens for five years and didn’t we all miss her? After becoming a wife and a mother of two gorgeous girls, Nigerian actress Dakore Ebguson-Akande made a big comeback to the industry with numerous movie roles and endorsements and did I mention looking finer and fitter? Anyway, check her out on the Spring/Summer cover of Blanck Magazine. In the body-themed issue, the Fifty actress talks candidly about her body issues and losing her baby weight. In an in-depth interview, Nigerian star actress Dakore Akande talks to Blanck about being very self-conscious and working really hard to change the things she didn’t like about her body, using realistic and level headed approaches. Attributing motivation and determination as elements that fueled her ability to shed all her baby weight and getting back into her filming business.  When we sat to talk about losing all the postpartum weight and fitting into the media’s idea of what a TV star should look like; she takes it to church “it’s about what rocks your boat” she says “but don’t let anyone dictate for you who you should be; skinny doesn’t mean beautiful.” Also in this issue are riveting fashion editorials, topical articles and a special interview feature with media personality and all round fabulous Wana Udobang, who schooled us on the importance of living our healthiest and most authentic lives on our terms, irrespective of our body shape, form or size.  This issue of the magazine is our most rewarding yet, as we seek to to celebrate the progressive nature of womanhood. The digital version will be available online,...

MAG MONDAY: TIWA SAVAGE, LUPITA NYONG’O, JAZMINE SULLIVAN, AYA JONES, DPIPERTWINS, CHRIS ROCK AND RIHANNA SHINE BRIGHT AS COVER STARS.

Who doesn’t love a beautiful magazine cover? but have you notice that everytime a beautiful cover comes out, that’s when gazillion(gross exaggeration…I know) others appear as well. This makes it difficult to pick and choose which to post. Because I don’t want to end up with back-to-back posts of just magazine covers on this blog, I’ve decided that once a month or so, I’m going to do summary of all the magazines that would have come out in that month. It’s not even mid March yet and already we’ve been blown away by some stunning covers. From Ebony to Zen magazine, the stars look nothing short of flawless.  Tiwa Savage, Lupita, Jazmine Sullivan, Aya Jones, Rihanna and more are making us lose some coins on these mags. Below are some of the beautiful covers. She went away for a short while, had a baby, came back with a banging new album ‘R.E.D’ which to me cemented her place as the queen of Afrobeat. Continuing on her comeback trail, Tiwa Savage takes stunning to a whole new level on the cover of ThisDay Style magazine. Who run the world?…curvy girls. The world has been whispering about it but Ebony magazine has taken a bold step to stamp out body-shaming by featuring not one but four curvy stars. Singer Jazmine Sullivan joined Fashion Blogger Gabi Fresh , Singer Chrisette Michele and Actress Danielle Brooks to form the Body Brigade. Go girls!!! It’s not just Kendell Jenner and Gigi Hadid making waves in the modeling industry, Aya Jones is the latest supermodel  heating up the runway from New York to Paris. The 20-year-old French-Ivorian...
WHO WORE IT BETTER: KEHINDE BANKOLE VS CHANEL IMAN.

WHO WORE IT BETTER: KEHINDE BANKOLE VS CHANEL IMAN.

Sorry about the blurry pictures. Please scroll below for clearer ones. I’m excited to present another Who Wore It Better post. In this post, we have Nigerian actress/model Kehinde Bankole and American supermodel Chanel Iman wearing the magnificient ball gown(my wedding dress…yes it is) by Zuhair Murad. The nude dress with white embellishments was first worn by Chanel Iman last May at the 2015 amfAR Cinema against AIDS Gala. While attending  the AMVCA 2016 which is taking place as I type at the Eko Hotels and Suites in Lagos, Kehinde Bankole made a statement on the red carpet in the beautiful dress. Is it a coincidence that they both went for the same hairstyle or was it like…Kehinde saw the dress on Iman and fell in love like we all did and said to herself ‘I must do a twinny with Iman’…anywho… In a dress like this, there’s no way you can’t feel confident and be the princess that you are. Anyway…who wore it better? Nigerian actress Kehinde Bankole Supermodel Chanel Iman. Photo credit: Bellanaija Gettyimages...
PICTURE OF THE MONTH:AMBER ROSE AND KIM KARDASHIAN.

PICTURE OF THE MONTH:AMBER ROSE AND KIM KARDASHIAN.

They say picture say a thousand words, this says gazillion.Now this is some finger-licking juicy plot twist. It feels like it was only two seconds ago that Kim’s husband Kanye West queened out on Amber’s ex-husband Wiz Khalifa on twitter and spouses and ex-spouses and children and ancestors got dragged into the online shirt-shredding squabble…you get my drift and many unmentionable adjectives were used. So I was just doing my usual morning ritual, scrolling on Instagram and then I saw this picture on Amber Rose’s page with the caption ‘swingers’ and instantly thought it was a joke then went to dig more and realised Kim Kardashian also posted it on her page…wowcha…peace in the Middleeast. She even captioned it ‘Tea anyone?‘ Tea?…it’s dripping all over my onesie love. Once again the queens of the net who happen to share the same birthday, have schooled us on how to break the internet. Many thanks to momager Kris, she teaches well, her students are excellent, she deserves a Hollywood star. Meanwhile Kanye is in a studio somewhere screaming ‘ma chicks baad, ma chicks hood, ma chicks do shit that your chicks wouldn’t do…dum…tudum…tudum…tududududum…’   Now that this is ‘sorted’, what’s gonna happen to Amber’s bestie Chyna and the other K situation? We know that tea is brewing. If that gets sorted, I’d personally cement the Hollywood star for Kris...

Their bodies are the biznizz! January is almost done and if you’re still searching for just that one or two fitspiration to kickstart the year…look no further bloghearts. Here’s Kimmypie, the mother and Brittnebabe, the daughter from New York. I follow Brittnebabe on Instagram. She’s a crtified personal trainer, fulltime student and many more and to say she’s dedicated is an understatement. She has worked really hard to transform herself into this piece of awesomeness and to have a mother with a body like that too, what’s there not to crush(like) on? Brittnebabe shared this picture of her and her mum on Instagram the other day and I spent my whole evening having a serious talk with the foods in my fridge and cupboard…and bedside drawer(don’t judge me). How did it go?I think I need more talk with them, I find them really stubborn…annnywho…my #wcw goes to Brittnebabe and Kimmypie. Follow them on Instagram @brittnebabe and @kimmypie Watch Brittne in action...
