The Naija version of the UK’s “I’m a celebrity.....get me out of here!”

The recent trend in Nigerian television depicts various ideas poached from across the pond, with the latest addition being a similar replication of the UK celebrity reality TV show - "I'm a celebrity...Get me out here!”. The UK version showcases a number of celebrities living together in a jungle, with no luxuries competing to win a cash prize. Having garnered enough popularity, the show is now syndicated to show in other countries i.e. USA, Sweden and Germany, to name a few. Therefore, it is only right that TV producers in Nigeria cash in on the existing favourable status of the show.

Only, Nigeria's show is called "Gulder Ultimate Search Celebrity Showdown" or "GUS Celebrity Showdown" for short. The show features an eclectic mix 10 celebrities: Funke Akindele, Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha, Emeka Ike, Muma Gee, Daddy Showkey, Bob Manuel Udokwu, Obesere, Princess, Dare Art Alade, and Weird MC; presented by our very own Genevieve Nnaji.

This definitely proves for a very interesting watch, as we've already seen yesterday (the programme is being aired once a week, every Sunday, for 11 weeks on AIT, NTA network, STV, Africa Magic, Soundcity (DSTV) and other stations as an original Nigerian adventure programme with international standard).

We’ll just have to stay tuned and watch out for who ends up with the ultimate prize of N7.5 million.

Who is your favourite celebrity?

Am I biased to choose Dare, just because he's hot?!

Featuring the funkiest – Derele (crazy and mad cool!), the swavviest – Maye Hunta (we can’t wait for part two of “Ekaette”), the up and commers - Steel (also a designer, a sexy combination) and many others including Mr Eldee himself.

The Fashion Event

It's Fashion time!! As a self-confessed fashionista, what better way to start off my blog.

The very anticipated fashion event, brought to us by Fusion: Fashion and Beauty Events, featured various designers from: dzyN couture, Tai, House of Silk, Phunkafrique, House of Marie, Coco’ Couture and Urban Style.
Other participants include
Kazelo, The Source,TM Lewin, Soulskin, Literati, Fully Charged, Ola accessories, Gemstones, Pillow talk, Sleek JamesLULLY, Fabrica, Mi Regalio, Jiddas pride and so much more!

There was also FUSION salon for fast fixes run by Kazelo, a photostudio for instant mini photshoots run by Croft studios in association with Sleek and other services. Food and drinks were served by Cake Swirl, Suhjuiced etc.

As I entered the gloriously filled hall,(ALONE! Girlfriends bailed out on me) I was approached by one of the reps from Iloxa (a modelling agency), which was definitely a confidence booster as I strutted around the packed auditorium, deciding to make the most out of the event and even meet new people.
Amongst the fashionable items sold, the main attraction were the trends spotted by my fellow spectators, you all looked fabulous! I mean it was a fashion event. For those present, you might just spot yourself in one these pictures. For those of you who could't make it, stay tuned for more info for the next fashion event.

Happy viewing!!

Definitely had to take one with the hot Uti from BB Africa (ladies, I'm sure he's single!)
