Some of these were taken on my way to and at the venue.. fun times;)
Myself with others; I had the chance to meet and greet , M.i , Ice prince, Jessy, some African actresses/actors backstage. So here is a pic of me and a few of them :)
Meet Sophy Aiida (the lady with the perfectly shaped eyebrows, in the orange dress and the pretty chuncky necklace) .She's definately to watch out for in the entertainment industry .
Performances:The grand finale, all the artists and hosts came on stage for a last show down .Best way to end the ceremony. The gorgeous and super talented singer Miss Waje (I know,I have used the word talented over 60 times , but words can't describe how talented Miss Waje is) her voice gave me goose bumps . Back stage: Talented Make up artist Joyce Ifeoma Jacob, doing her magic on Naira (winner of best U.S based female artist) Brothers :Emeka & Theodore Chukwu .High end accessories/fashion designers and owners of 'Agu Couture'.
Hello Readers ,
How is everyone ? I hope you all are doing great , (and for those of you who are students,I hope the semester started out great . I wish you all goodluck=)
Back to where I was going ...2 weeks ago, a crowd of Nigerians and non-Nigerians gathered in NYC to celebrate the 2011 Nigerian Entertainment award.... I know I'm 2 weeks late and Im sorry , but better late than never right ?;) . I still wanted to share with you all, the pictures I took. I had a wonderful time ,I learned some great makeup tricks backstage, I met some amazing and very talented artists, some amazing singers as well as some great fashion designers.
I believe as Africans , one way we can progress is by helping and supporting our fellow brothers & sisters or by appreciating their talent . I think appreciation is one of those things people need in other to be motivated and to want to do more of what they like .This event did just that , and I can tell all the winners felt appreciated and supported.I was proud to partake in such a wonderful event .I am already looking forward to next year's [Inshallah]
My outfit: new hair style(long braids done by my wonderful friend Obi), Dress; BCBG max azria, Shoes:Christian Louboutin leopard print(I think I needed something other than white or black, so I opted for leopard print with a pop of red),Bag:Claudia firenze.
