Just when many thought Gongo Aso exponent, 9ice is gradually fading off the scene in Nigeria, the good part of his performance

Celebs such as TEE A,Julius Agwu, Teju Baby Face,Kunle Afolayan,Banky W, Funke Akindele and others were all there. Dj Jimmy Jatt and DJ Abass were on the wheel on steel and they didnt in any way disappointed the large flow of Nigerians at the Nottinghill Carnival 2010.

Top Broadcaster, Bisi Olatilo of the famous Bisi Olatilo Show and House of Representatives member, Hon. Abike Dabiri Erewa were also there to enjoy the carnival and encourage Nigerians on how to be good ambassadors of their country.

The Nigerian corner, gistmaster gathered was facilitated by Kennis Music and First Bank of Nigeria Plc.

She baby was also at the event but she couldn't perform because of time.The Nigerian corner was closed at 7 PM and the train moved to Moonlighting Club for the after party. Trust naija people, they 'digged' the dance floor till the next morning.


It is no longer news that South Africa now provides ample opportunity of greener pastures for most Nigerian models as more of these girls are relocating to the ex-apartied nation. The simple reason for this recent relocation by the models is basically because there are better opportunities for them over there. Unlike in Nigeria, the modeling industry in South Africa is well structured and there are several modeling agencies over there who are willingly to sign them up as long as they possess all the qualities they are looking for. Also, Nigerian models are many in South Africa now as they have become hot cakes to most designers are in love with their peculiar color and body curves
But contrary to general belief that these girls are hitting it big due to the many fashion shows in which they feature and get handsomely paid, City People recently gathered that they are actually into other things to keep up with their high standard of living. Some of them are actually Escorts (Call Girls). It was gathered that most of them are involved in prostitution, at a very sophisticated level. This has been the major means of survival for some of these girls who parade themselves as models.

The interesting thing is that quite a number of these Fashion Modeling Agencies double as Model Escorts agencies pimping the girls for mostly rich interested men. The girls don’t see it as a big deal and because of the raw African beauty they have, they are fast becoming the favorite of South Africans and Europeans too. They have the dream figure these men and with their charm, spirit and elegance; they can easily melt the ice and bind any fastidious gentleman.

For many of these models, escorting is a part time job. Some of them are even available to model for these men and would be glad to give them very sexy photo shoots. Interestingly, the girls are well travelled because of the daytime job and escort work. They have visited and modelled in various places like Paris, Milan;America, London, Dubai and others. Some of the models who are not into the Escort business specialize in dating white guys who in return , take care of their needs. The( The Girls) shield these men away from their friends because most time, they snatch one another’s boyfriends too.Though a good number of South African Call Girls are into drugs, this is not common among the nigerian girls.

The few ones among the girls who are not involved in the escort business, however, resolve to menial jobs to keep body and soul together. They walk in fast food restaurants and cafes spread around Johannesburg, Durban and other cities in the country.
Contrary to general opinion that they are cleaning out big, these girls don’t even earn much as a runway models. For every job they do, by the time the agencies deduct their commission, they are left with peanuts. The only ones really cleaning out are those signed for commercials and billboards, as the payment for these are usually huge .Even after the commission deductions, their take home pay is still very good. But it is only few of them who are in that category as most of them still struggle with the peanut they earn from the fashion shows which are more regular. However, irrespective of how they earn their living, most of them now live big, in their own apartment and cruise around in their own cars.
