Controversial designer/blogger/celebrity critic, Emmy Collins, has once again taken a swipe at some prominent Nigerians including Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, Linda Ikeji, Ay Makun, Monalisa Chinda, Agbani Darego and American singer Kelly Rowland. Its an interesting and funny read. Read below:
Florence Ita-Giwa She looks very nice in this image considering that we are used to images like the one directly below. Yes, this is so her age and for once the make-up wasn`t so over the top. If I were her daughter, I would nick that skirt off her. I believe a very edgy chic can work wonders with that skirt and she did alright with it herself considering her limitations. She has definitely grinned her way into the winner’s corner without qualms. May we see more of this. Someone say AMEN nah, abi una no prefer her this way?
Whoever designed and sold this number needs to be named and shamed like our former Aviation monster, oopsy, I meant minister,Stella Oduah. Well, I don`t think anyone is shedding any tear for Madam Armoured Cars as she must have stashed away enough to retire to Brazil this moment if she so desires. I`m still gonna miss her make-up though,winks.
I said before and I will avail myself of this opportunity to reiterate that there seems to be a sign somewhere in J.F Kennedy that says “Nigerians don`t appreciate authentic style so tone it down if you are heading out there.” I don’t understand how these American singers collect big dosh only to underwhelm when it comes to fashion. Her bob hairstyle is whack and her I-just-woke-up-my-banger (forget Bugatti, abeg) outfit didn`t quite cut it. Yes, I understand the need to dress for comfort when you are traveling on a long plane journey but there are ways of doing it in style and looking yummy. She is a loser on this one but if she gave a very good account of herself on stage then she can be adjudged to have redeemed herself.
Linda and her “designer”bags Linda still represents the picture of yesterday’s left over meal regardless of whether her bags cost zillions of dollars or not and there could only be one reason for that which is a perpetual poverty of the mind.
I don`t know about you guys but nothing about Linda here suggests that she has expended more than 50 quid on herself and I dare anyone including Linda herself to prove me wrong.
You see, the Linda of today is absolutely different from the humble Linda I used to know. The first time I had a chat with Linda was after I read her blog and her exact words were “Hi Emmy,fancy getting an email from u….. And u read my blog?Yeeeeeeeeeee! lol”. It is apparent from her outbursts that this was a bubbly and humble lady who never took herself too seriously. Fast forward a few years ahead and you get this lady who has circulated the notion that all that matters is money,the mean lady who will cowardly innovate lies against anyone who dares criticise her and then send her gutter mouth sister to circulate same.
No doubt Linda has done well for herself but if you asked me she hasn`t done well for the society at the moment because readers who compromise of youths are being taught to accumulate money by all means necessary instead of being educated on the need to work hard and persevere till success arrives.Knowledge is power so Linda must yearn towards empowering her readers rather than always telling them about who bought what car, who wears the latest Rolex wristwatch or who built the biggest house.
Sometimes the wristwatches ain`t even authentic, the cars don`t exist and the houses belong to someone else, yet Linda will post the stories without scrutiny and thereby making the young impressionable youths and some not very smart section of her readership believe they have been leading irrelevant and non-meaningful lives and thereby indirectly encouraging them to go through any means necessary to amass illegal wealth so that they can feature on Linda`s blog or perhaps wear a Rolex as well.
It is a shame that Linda doesn`t even realise how much influence she could be if she chooses to. The question is does her smartness extend to that level. We have become so cheap that once someone expends money on us, he or she buys our silence forever.I believe some very smart people would remind me of the amount to a tune of a million naira which Linda doled out last Christmas.
Anyone that comes up with that crap as an argument to put forward against my notion that Linda doesn’t give back to society is apparently not intelligent enough to comprehend the angle I`m approaching. My answer to this group of people would of course be a deafening silence. Please do yourself a favour and don`t bring up the “you-hating-on-her” rubbish because that will give you away as unwise,very impressionable and very gullible.If you disagree with me then fair enough but argue for or against the points I raised.
Well,this came about because Linda was posting bags again and talking the exact trash her sister Laura came up with when she posted invoices which left me with no option than to believe that Laura could have tweeted those nonsensical stuff on her twitter page but it was Linda that initiated and perhaps typed them all in. Looking at these images has totally convinced me that it there were ever an Mgbeke Inc. Linda will be the national co-ordinator aka mgbeke in chief. Ok moving on.
Monalisa I love this picture and the dress but wait o, what in God`s name is so interesting about Monalisa that her magazine gotta be all about her? I heard this magazine is touted to be selling at N5000(£20). Ok,let`s go on a little journey here and see what you get for £20 and then decide if it is money well spent or money stuffed down the pit. For £20 you will be either fortunate or unfortunate depending on which angle you view it from to puke or idolize these images below.
Ok, now having sifted through the images, do you guys believe N5k (£20) spent on this magazine is money well spent or money stuffed down the pit toilet? Well, while you are brainstorming on my question, my personal unbiased opinion is that if you have bought this then you have been mugged aka 419ed, lol.This ain`t worth more than N1k.
This was the puke-worthy interview allegedly given by AY. I must confess that I`m somewhat flustered considering that my guy is a comedian, so I don`t know whether to take him seriously or not. The prevalent problem Nigeria is experiencing at this moment is that of people not realizing which lane they should stay on because I can`t fathom why AY of all people would sincerely deem himself to be stylish. Maka gini,when,why, warrom,say who die nah? 1000 pairs of shoes my skinny ass.Well, it depends on what he considers as shoes sha. According to this interview, this bloke is basically afraid of repeating shoes because people might believe he is broke. Kai,the sort of rubbish that exits the mouths of the so called role models in Nigeria is very astounding. To think this dude has fans who might listen to this garbage now and go on to believe that to be cool, you should never re-rock your shoes very worrisome. Wow,wow and wow again. Find below, a few interesting excerpts from the interview: What fashion item do you love shopping for and can never get enough of? I love shoes. Though I have over 1000 pairs, I still want to buy more and more. All I need is to find something that I like; it might be something similar to what I have in my closet but I would still buy it.
You have over 1000 pairs of shoes. Do you repeat shoes? Of course, there are shoes that match different attire and suits, so you have to repeat. But I don’t do that often so that people won’t say I am going broke. If you see me repeat a shoe and believe I don’t have any other one and the best you can do is talk about it, I see you as an arm- chair critic. If you have an opportunity to go into my closet, you will be looking for an opportunity to withdraw your statement.
