Elegance & Style Awards 2007
I buy Encomium magazine every week, just to keep abreast with all the
gossip happenings in Naija and it wasn’t until today my younger sis noticed my name in one of the mags Style awards. The ad has been running for weeks now, I usually glance through and flip to the next page, never paid it much attention, luckily someone else took an interest in it and brought it to my attention. It’s called Encomium Elegance and Style Awards 2007 and they had so many categories. I was nominated in a category called Most Elegant Women.
Here are the nominees in that same category
Lanre Da Silva Ajayi
Stella Damasus Aboderin
Sylvia Edem Emechete
Elizabeth Elohor Isiohor
Seriously, I don’t know what some names are doing there…including mine. Elegant ke? Me? lol. I don’t even know how to be that, don’t try to be…but it’s nice to be recognised…
There are other categories like Most Stylish Men, All time beauty queens, 10 most powerful people in fashion, best spas, best make-up artists, best promoters of fashion, best style writers/editors, best lounges, most dashing celebrity couples etc…
Maybe one day, I’ll type out all the nominees in each category. Too long a list.
Tuface Idibia News
Though he’s left the hospital, 2baba as he is fondly called left the hospital with 12 pellets in his thigh. He doesn’t limp or feel any pain, but he will have to follow the doctors instructions for the pellet to come out one after the other. After his release from the hospital, a thanksgiving party was held for him at Planet One Events place tagged ‘Back to Grace’. Then last week, friends and fans at his Festac residence also decided to hold a thanksgiving party for him at Festac…well, that one didn’t go well. Boys started fighting, throwing weapons, harrassing girls etc. Tuface who was present at the show, was taken to safety and never re-appeared even after everyone calmed down and the show continued.
Also, there are rumours that Tuface and on-again and off-again girlfriend Annie Macauley are back in love. Those two and their love sef…after seven years together, it’s hard to let go…especially when love is still there.
Soul E at war with former record label
I’m sure y’all know there’s a war going on between Soul E and his label, Colossal Records. The war started a few months back as a result of the artiste quitting the label before the appointed time. Both parties are now in court to settle their rift. The label has gotten an injunction preventing Soul E (real names, Emmanuel Okose) from parading himself as Soul E. TV and Radio stations have also been barred from either playing the singer’s videos or granting any artist called Soul E interview.
The affidavit in support of the motion in favour of Colossal states that
-Soul E is restained from using the name Soul E
-Can’t release any album using that name
-Can’t grant an interview as Soul
-He’s also restrained from from releasing any new album till the case is finally settled
-Restrained from the use of the copyrighted album ‘Naija is blessed’, use of registered beats of all tracks in the said album, can not remix any of the songs…etc, until the determination of the suit. Wow!

‘Most girls in the industry (Acting) are now prostitutes”- Saheed Balogun “You just see every Tom, Dick and Harry wanting to become a producer, actor because they want to make money and that has culminated into so many ugly things you hear these days. I am very sorry to say this openly, many of the girls have to sleep with marketers to make money. They have to sleep with a lot of producers too. They have turned prostitution to a means of livelihood” SaheedBalogun, prominent Yoruba actor.
