It is actually pretty hilarious seeing these two celebs buying and selling in the market. If not for Kefee we would have concluded they were in a market scene, but right now it looks more like they were really in the market for serious business. Who knows it could even be true that Bukky wright has used her dynamic spirit to launch into another business. LOL.

Mamma Knowles & daughter Solange turned out for the Angel Ball as well.

Mamma Knowles & daughter Solange turned out for the Angel Ball as well. As expected, Solo was graceful and classy in a Badgley Mischka Fall 2012 gown. No surprises here! She went with a bright red lip, perfect... and coordinated her dress with a white & gold Edie Parker clutch bag! Mama Tina held her own as well, looking absolutely stunning in a green and black velvet frock!

Looking very happy and in Love...Ashanti and Nelly attended the Angel Ball as well.

Ashanti and Nelly attended the Angel Ball as well. The beautiful Ashanti shined in a sequin-embellished side slit, black Jovani Couture gown, accessorized with black strappy sandals. Her chic look was finished with her awesome shiny, wavy tresses.

Nelly complemented his lady's look, wearing an all black ensemble, paired with suspenders. Love it

rina Shayk also graced the red carpet for the Angel Ball event, which took place last at Ciprini's.

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model looked gorgeous in a glittery keyhole detail, open-back Roberto Cavalli dress. A sleek pulled back bun and simple makeup completed the winning look.

Brandy made a fashion statement HERE

singer Brandy has definitely been doing her thing! Her fashion, hair, makeup have all been on point since she came back onto the social scene.

For the premiere of 'Skyfall', Naomi Campbell and her beau were quite the stylish pair.

The supermodel hasn't skipped a beat, she graced the red carpet in a rocking a fierce pant suit from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2013 collection. The pant suit featured white lapels, which gives the piece a little edge. I do wish Naomi would have gotten her trousers tailored, they're a tad bit too long.

THE grand opening of the Versace Soho store!

In the city that never sleeps...last night was no different! Stars like Kanye West, JHud, and Lady Gaga were all in attendance for the grand opening of the Versace Soho store!

Mikel Obi explains why he started a record label

Apart from football, music is another thing I had passion for while I was growing up in Jos. I have so much emotional attachment to music. It lifts my soul and makes me happy. The arrival of MMM Records (Matured Money Minds) has gone a long way to show the deep love I have for music. I want to contribute my little quota to the growth of the music industry in Nigeria. I'm a good song writer and singer. If I wasn't a footballer, I would have done well as a singer or a disc jockey (DJ)' - Mikel Obi

Halle Berry arrived at the Hollywood premiere of new film 'Cloud Atlas' held in Los Angeles Tuesday night, glowing as usual.

Rockin her signature spiked do...the 46 year old actress looked stunning in a fitted silver dress. The knee length lace dress from Dolce & Gabbana features a bustier top and a pencil skirt, she paired with Versace platform heels. Minimal make up, and dangling earrings finished off the look.

P-Square Finally Opens Up On The Alleged Murder Of Their Mum

Our journey into the music world

It started like a dream but today, we thank God all the glory because it has become a reality. When we started, we had late Michael Jackson as our mentor. That was why in one of our songs titled, Busy Body which we released about 12 years ago, we tried to copy Michael Jackson’s dance steps.

Then, our fans used to call us, Paul and Peter. He influenced our musical career. We were challenged by Michael Jackson’s huge achievements in the world of music. We said to ourselves, if Michael Jackson could do all of these, we could equally do better. So, we tried our best and by the grace of God and our fans, we have realise our dreams.

Deal with Konvict music

The only thing we can say, is that we have been signed under Konvict. And to prove this new deal which most people are still doubting, we featured Akon in our ‘’Chop my Money” remix.

Our private life!

You call it private and that’s why, most times we don’t like to discuss it for personal reasons.

Handling your female fans!

My dear, it is not easy. However, we handle everybody with love and care. One thing is to be a celebrity, and another is knowing how to handle all that comes with it. Sometimes, they will call on us just to hear our voices and to wish us well.

What do you do during your leisure time?


Sometimes, we swim or play basketball with our friends.

Why was J. Martins not featured in your latest album, “Invasion”?

We have no problem with J Martins. He was not in the country when we released the album. You know as we are busy so also are others too. And you don’t expect them to displease themselves in order to please you. But we are in good terms.

Challenges in the industry so far….

A lot of challenges, sometimes after releasing an album our marketers will want to give us condition that we go 50/50. It’s very difficult to compromise with them. Sometimes, if you enter the studio to record you song, they will compel you to do what you wouldn’t want to do.

The craziest thing you have ever done!

Laughs.. that was when we went for a night party some years ago. Some desperate girls were all over us and before we knew what was happening, they were kissing and romancing us openly. We had to run for our dear lives.

Most embarrassing moment

It was when we were coming up. Some of our kinsmen walked up to us and told us that its high time we join them in the village and stop roaming about as if we are not conversant with the tradition of our people. We felt embarrassed. But unfortunately, we later adhered to their advice.

How do you feel about your mum’ s death?

We feel so bad to know that our mum is no more. But who are we to question the Almighty God. Traditionally, we are supposed to bury her and not the other way round. It is just that it happened so soon.. Indeed, her death was a big blow to us.

It was rumoured that you people knew what happened to her?

Then, it is too bad to hear that people are accusing us of being responsible for our mum’s death. We are not blaming anybody. People are free to say what they want to say. We begin to wonder whether there is anything that will ever make us to go for the life of our beloved mother.

Her life cannot be quantified in terms of money or fame. So, our answer to this question is that we have no hand in our mum’s death. We only blame the death that snatched her away from us if not so, people won’t be pointing accusing fingers at us. She died after a brief illness.

Aside your mum’s death, there was another rumour that you guys have joined Illuminati?

We are short of words. Why would anybody say such things about us? Well, the fact remains that we do not belong to any secret cult, whether Illuminati or anything you call it. We owe our achievements and everything that is happening to us to Almighty God.

Kim K looked super casual and cute

The star wore a sleeveless pleated black leather peplum top accessorized with a statement collar necklace. She paired it all with faded, cuffed, skin-tight gray jeans and some sky-high pointy metallic stiletto pumps. Oh, and, of course, her hair was perfectly coiffed, and her makeup was flawless.
