Why is the guy's hand on her bumper?. Na waah for guys oh and Omotola no even care how her husband will feel afterall she needs to measure up with Genevieve and no matter what it takes to do it. She needs to reduce the weight cos her arms look like iya mogaji own. She also looks 3 months pregnant. Whoever sold her that dress no like her at all.-Gbenga

NO NO NO NO! WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS!
people can finally stop with the "omosexy" thing, abeg.
she needs to hit the gym, ASAP.

Nice one but from the other pictures i saw on facebook she looked so tacky with her stomach bulging through. A gown not as tight and a bit longer may have not her more good since she is not slim like you, linda. She is a beautiful woman but she urgently need to get a good stylist or learn to dress better. the weave on was another matter.

That outfit is not working.

well well, thats what i love linda ikeji's blog and bella naija for.
She tweeted a few days ago that she was off to L.A for the grammys and i have been waiting ever since for the pixs especially yesterday when she was retweeting all tweets that said they saw her on grammys red carpet.
I am excited to know that OMO-T is spreading her tentacles (even though i honestly dont know why she was there) but erm.....seeing what she wore to the grammys mehn her stomach looks big and all. I am all for full figure but at least dress right for your size and if you insist on wearing such slim down!
Mr mathew Ekehinde ema binu for that mumu wehn put hand for your property am sure OMO-T was taken unaware.

Its amazing how pictures bring out the contours in one's body, on video she looked totally fabulous....and why is that guy resting his hand on Omotola's behind with much confidence....sometimes i think capt. mathew is such a softie smh
Fiercely!

Omo sexy...WTF where u thinking? that dress is not age appropriate and the tummy? havent u heard of body magic....dis goes to show that that pics i saw of u with ultra flat tummy was the work of photoshop. You just chose this international event to fall our hand.

Surprise said...

This is not the best pix of Omotola. Omosexy is way finer than this. Eba full that her belle well well o.

That man in the first pix whose left hand is resting on VANTAGE POSITION, is that Mr. Ekeinde? If not, wahala dey o.

What's this woman weraing for heaven's sake??????????? I'm highly dissapointed!!! And the hair? Mewa nsele ni duniyan!!!

You guys should slow your roll on OMO.T please, did u guys see celebration of gospel award on BET and see how whitney houston looks with her big belly in a very tight, age inappropriate mini dress?
How bout mariah before she got knocked up appearing at her concert with protuding stomach and exposing it etc.....pls some are blessed with natural slim body while some like Omotola and co have to fight tooth & nail to watch their weight.

She is a beautiful woman sellah....all anti Omotola can sue her for being their source of worry!

Anonymous said...

@anon 12.22
its not by force to wear a tight dress oh
even if whitney and mariah chose to wear inappropriate clothes doesnt excuse omo t
thanks linda was really looking forward to the pics
now I am so disappointed

Madame Sting said...

Either she gained a lot of weight or that dress is very unflattering.

drajke said...

Omotola is how old? Ok, as folks grow older, their stomachs tend to grow too, it's called nature...

Yes some work out, some have plastic surgery, and some wear girdles and what not, but it is NOT unnatural to have a bulging tummy...

Anonymous said...

One word for you OmoT..Threadmill

jade said...

SHE is hustling to be on international recognition like Genevieve and Tuface obviously wht was she doing at the grammy without proper recognition of why she went there. She couldnt even live up to at least gracing the red carpet so we can atleast use that as an example.=
Omo t looks trashy always this days she shld stop trying to belong very badly. u either stick to ur silly music or you face your acting career..

Anonymous said...

Really wrong outfit. You see why I always talk about dressing age appropriately. Yes, there are people her age that can carry off a short dress like that but they've got to be very slim like Eva Longoria. What was she thinking? Sleeveless dress with those arm? short and fitted with those legs and the pouch? Where were all the Naija stylists before she went on this adventure?

tolu said...

omotola needs spanx in her life. she has a good figure but if exercise can't help those unslightly bumps she should use spanx or something she's look much better. on another note, i don't like her outfit. she should have worn something longer. she looks beautifual as usual and very youthful sha

Big sister said...

phew!!see scruitinisng oh! I bet she is trying to but really not easy and besides Four children in Naija where the staple food is carbohydrate. For the dress no comment.

ademuyiwa said...

Can someone please tell omosexy that a body clinging attire is not her style, please. The tummy and the bulgy and bumpy bum. Glowup please.

doll said...

her tummy Jeez

can we really stop with this four kids talk? I've seen people pop out 5 or 6 and still maintain a hot or slim figure. just because she had 4 kids does not mean she should let herself go.
the dress is UNFLATTERING, period. when people see her (especially in Hollywood) they're not gonna take into consideration how many kids she's had. so stop all that rubbish talk, abeg.

ChiChiLuv said...

12.22 - Whitney and Mariah get dogged out too for wearing inappropriate outfits for their girth, it just doesn't appear here on this blog. Go to bossip.com and see how they talk about them so they don't get a pass.

I think had she worn a dress that represented her roots (like she did in an Elan Magazine shoot last year), there are many Nigerian/African designers using Ankara/Woodene to make beautiful attires, fresh designs etc it would have been super hot but she was trying to fit in with the LA crowd, hence the horrendous white dress. Had that dress been black, it wouldn't have been half as bad but white has never been the color for a women with a little meat on her bones. White makes people look bigger in addition to the 10lbs that the camera adds.

She's always been up and down with her weight, as far as I am concerned for a woman with four children, she looks great!

Personally, I think the guy might have shifted his hand there right before the flash went off, I don't know if she would allow him to just put his hands there like say him give bride price for that nyansh but then again, where her wedding ring? She no dey where am? Wahala don dey? I hope not because before Dakore and Olu, there was Omotola and Matthew blowing up the pages with their romance o! LOL!

Anonymous said...

compared to other actual 'stars' at the show she is wayyyyy out of shape, her stomach and arms has to go c'mon...i guess u could say this is living the dream Linda but by what standards would u use to measure that? living the dream could be ANYTHING...not just attending some music award show. At the end of the day none of the awards so shows matter.

Anonymous said...

yea every nigerian musician or actress seems to 'hustling' for international recognition. Must u be recognized internationally just so u can say u made it? oh please! Nigerians are truly something else. now its one thing to try and 'belong' among the Nollywood stars and Nigerian musicians and a completely different thing to put ur head where they didnt send u ( internationally) what is she really doing there? no one even knew who she was lmbo

Anonymous said...

Seriously...why are you people making excuses? Omoni Oboli has three boys and still maintains her figure. People are forgetting that omotola is still young and had her most of her kids back to back. Just because you had a kid is not an excuse to let yourself go. She is A-list and is trying to gain recognition in Hollywood (obviously). Unless she likes the way she looks....anyway, you mamas on here that have blown up after two kids should stop making noise on that "four kids" thing, abeg!

Anonymous said...

her makeup is a nono
did u guys see the black eye brows?
I saw it off nairaland in some other pictures mot on lindas site.

haba omot
anyhoo sha this babe doesnt look happy to me these days
maybe shes facing some personal battles cz she seems to be losing herself

then the white dress
you wear dark colors like black to hide pouches and all
besides shes def wearing a body magic I can see the line down her torso
so I can only imagine how flabby her tummy is naturally


besides I feel omo t always puts herself out there she deserves the critcism with the kinda things she wears
show some respect for yourself,ditch that suggestive name OMOSEXY and stop wearing trashy outfits

Femiluv said...

She looks WRONG!!!

Where's her wedding ring anyways?

bodacious02 said...

She berra be hustling TV/MOVIE award tickets where she can be the REGAL naija screen goddess she is......


MAMA please come strong with ya outfits next time.....holla @ Duro Olowu or something

Anonymous said...

Y'all are something else....even the kennis music that got the right to cover grammy's then never walked on the red carpet at the occassion.
But Omotola (Obviously invited by some international music producer she's probably speaking to) went to the ceremony, appeared on E's red carpet (Everyone that watched it saw her right behind Ryan seacrest) taking pictures with some fans (I guess), mingling with her own crowd. As an artise you can go to any award show whether nominated or not, in and outside your country.

Now to what she was wearing, I totally frown at her choice of dress, esp. white but then she rocked it better on video than photograph.
Y'all should just shut your skinny mouths and stop polluting the air with your pathetic anorexia mind. At Amma awards in 07, future awards 07, the african diaspora award in L.A, this same OMOTOLA appeared a size 8 and i bet your eyes were blind then.

Now before you attack me, i am not related to her nor a big fan of hers but i just find it appaling how bitter all your comments are....so yes throw your tantrums (Whippin' my hair back and forth already)

Anonymous said...

goodness me, what was Omotola thinking in that dress? It was totally wrong for her figure and you could see her bulging stomach- not a very flattering set of pictures- she might get away with this sort of dress in Nigeria in the company of other Nigerian women with the same figure but not at an international event like the Grammys- this woman really needs to hit the gym BIG time- there are slimmer and toned stars coming up like Stephanie Oforka and Ifeoma Ejenobor and of course Genevieve, so if Omotola wants to keep up, she needs to slim down. True she has had children but so have the likes of Stella Damascus, Oge Okoye and Omoni Oboli yet they still look slim.

skankmypeaceofmind said...

why is she there? so this is what she does? go to where she isn't needed?

skankmypeaceofmind said...

i can see her BRA

Anonymous said...

I am delighted for omot as she's fondly called by her fans that she made it to this year's Grammys.Either she begged for the invite or she got it on a platter of gold is not ma biz but men I have seen her with better and nicer dresses so its amazing why she decided to wear that dress and even forgot to use her body magic. well am sure she left her hotel room in a rush so she could catch a glimpse of stars on the red carpet at least owo ticket ma wogbo.lol

Anonymous said...

hmmm, 4 children is not an excuss to look like this at an international event. i hope omosexy is reading these comments. my sister you didn`t repesent nigeria well with this look. dress, makeup. nasty man with hand in the wrong place. somebody find that man and knock his head for me.

Iyaeto said...

Kini??

PUCHOLATINAH said...

yep, she really dissapointed me on this one. what d heck was she thinking? she obviously needs to see pics of other stars. the outfit is trashy.

Mena UkodoisReady said...

This woman is very beautiful sha.

And I for one prefer seeing fuller figured women at these events. Most people are not ultra skinny you know.

Arms? Pouch? Abeg leave matter. Just check monique out (http://thesebootsaremadeforstalking.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/monique-hairy-legs-oscars.jpg she makes Omotola look anorexic)

Same with this madame: http://www.examiner.com/images/blog/EXID22153/images/precious-movie-theaters-opening-date-release-push-novel-november-6-20.jpg

Jennifer used to dress odd before she lost the weight: http://www.goodsurgeonguide.co.uk/images/articles/jennifer-hudson-before-after-photos1.jpg

Mind you, I am not a fan of Omotola, as I was put off by her 'jenifa-like' style and accent at the start of her career. But allow the lady her weight gain. Full figured ladies should rock on Abeg.

My own query is how she can spin (explain) the guys hands being on her butt, in a ceremony where neither her hubby nor wedding ring were present.

Ah the good ole 'it was for a video' should suffice.lol. :)

you guys stop this already
looking at her previous pictures
she wears her ring sometimes ,not all the time
I am a married woman and I remove my ring a lot of times and forget to put it on.
heck when I was pregnant it was off for the duration of my pregnancy
and the ring on her thumb is always on her thumb so its not like she removed her wedding ring and slipped on her thumb

I do have a problem with the guys hand on her behind tho

Anonymous said...

NO! NO! NO! there's just no criteria in which she looks good!
there are certain events you plan for like your life depends on it & to be honest this should have been one of those moments for Omotola.

it's either she bought the dress moooonths ago n didnt bother to try it on again b4 leaving or she got carried away with her nickname n forgot to dress her age!
sorry if it seems harsh but u have to either tuck it in or hide it. like my man Lynxx said - "suck belle make the dress fine" (in this case)
plus it's obvious the dress is so short bcos she had to pull it down long enough to show us the whole bra underneath!

pls whoever knows her can help with a few styling tips. i feel she's a beautiful lady & a good actress but has sooo much to learn on the image part of her career

To be honest, i beleive our "celebrities" don't understand that they are constantly in the public eye and that you have to work hard at looking good - fact of life! some people might be lucky & have a knack for it like the always delectable Genevieve (no comparisms o, just an example)but if u know u dont, there's absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to look ur best and asking for help/advice especially as the whole world watches

as regards the guy with his hand on her waist, well what can i say......

o boy u no serious. lets wait till genevieve give birth to 4 kids nd lets see how she can control her tommy. nd wetin u dey drink panado for another man headache for. u be her husband ode like u.

and since when did genny enter this matter? is it by force to compare? its not really about her body, its the fact that she wore something SO unflattering to the point where you could see every role on Omotola.
leave genny out of it.
Omo is not the first or last to have four kids. many people have had more and MAINTAIN their bodies still. abeg, keep quiet there.

hater said...

wtf??????...jeez! what a nollywood disgrace!

see what they say about pride goes before a fall?

her head had been filled with so much compliments that she looked good after 4 kids which she started having before she was 20! that is why she feels so confident wearing this utter rubbish! look at that stomach!!!!!


international critics would be having a field day! *hides head in shame*

Anonymous said...

omotola jeez mehn! did she have to wear something tight? whateva happened to 'shift dresses'? something free and short would have still looked nice, Case in point: Jennifer Lopez's outfit....this her outfit is just WRONG!its too tight and the bust is small. haba! btw, hasnt she ever heard of spanx or body magic??

tbabe said...

First of all just because she attended the grammys doesnt mean she has done something fantastic.Until Nolly wood gets more recognition in Hollywood she really is just a guest like anyone else who wasn't really noticed. I love thick African women, however there are ways in which u portray ur image such that people will appreciate ur figure. There are many big women in Hollywood who are beautiful and dress appropiately. Omotola do not allow us miss Genevieve all the time and wish we saw her instead of you.if you are going to represent us abroad like others like 2face have done in the past pls do it well. There is nothing wrong in wearing a nice outfit made of our own native material. Your are not a slim person and I know people tell u that ur sexy but this surely isn't what sexy implies in Hollywood. Wearing clothes that fit you well is sexy.This is trying too hard, u need to tone it down . less is more.

Mena UkodoisReady said...

She should have worn it longer like this babe did:

Am proud of her really.d issue is if she is dreamin hollywood,she nids to start actin nd finkin hollywood fashion wise and appearance wise.its d prestigious grammys,(her hair,outfit nd shape) didn't fit in.d number of kids u av is no criteria for ratin u as sexy in hollywood.she shlda consulted one of our indigenious designers who wld av considered her shape nd styled her perfect.

KIM said...

Omotola looks beautiful and sexy as
usual,thick but not fat.After 4 kids its natural to have a little
punch.A mini is nice for a change as variety is the spice of life.Only your husband must touch your body as its God's holy temple.
Don't worry about them they are mad with envy and wicked people say and do wicked things.God will punish you. KIM
