Gbemi has lived in america for
over 10years so i guess the accent just comes naturally having lived there for so long. Big ups darling im sooo proud of you. whoooppp whooooppp

Anonymous said...

Wow so many of these comments sound similar! I guess Gbemi was around :-P She thinks we are stupid #selfworshiper

Gbemi the fakus said...

Its amazing how a British, Irish, Australian or American person will live in Nigeria for decades and not try to fake a Nigerian accent yet ordinary 10yrs abroad, our Nigerians will make sure that filipino go jam Papua New Guinean, jam Ghanian, jam Hausa and Ikwerre accent and they somehow convince themselves that its American or British accent. Enle oh.

@ Inferi
so who made you the accent popo/custodian??Anybody can speak English in any flipping accent they want!! No be my papa Language after all, msccheww....go and shoot madonna that woke up one day and started using the British accent!! At least the Gbemi girl is doing something with her life...shiorrr!!

On the flipside, I would see why she would want to watch the tutorial videos....I find her eye make-up quite distressing.

sleemeto said...

her makeup doesnt suit her joor!

This is awesome. It will engage artists all over the world, not just those in Lagos.
Keep up the good work, your future is bright!

Taa stop lying there! Give me one example now.. Abeg stop beefing the girl joor bloody liar!

deekay said...

She looks horrible. What's with her eye shadow? O.m.g!! And the necklace, earrings, hair...face ...
na wa ohhh. Sum ting wong. But, ye gd luck. May the best artist win. Fab way to advertise her name/product.

Baribo said...

Hmm so breaking it down

- All contestants have to buy her product to enter

- The finalists will help her at her "pamper me show" which the public will pay for but the MUAs won't get paid for

- And then the winner get $500

This sounds to me like she is just looking fro free assistants to help with her "pamper me".

Only person winning is Gbemi....lol

and please the fone is so fake and unecessary. This babe went to QC and finished in 01.......Go and check other QC 01 chicks in yankee and see if they speak like this....

bee said...

Ok i respect her hustle but her makeup in the video is horrible. Why would I want her to mentor me?

I think she should stick to the selling part. MUA no be for everyone.

I have met this girl before, very nice lady and a go-getter - even saw her a few weeks ago at a pre-wedding event in Houston. Also she apparently worked as an Engineer and has decided to follow her passion ...so big ups to her and I wish her all success, my only advise to her is to keep it as real as possible, drop the fake accent especially if you are trying to impact a potential Nigerian customer-base and most especially being a Nigerian who was raised in Nigeria. Do some research on branding dear, you want your customers to be able to identify with your brand and product, all that intonation is unnecessary. Just so you know, I have lived in the US for almost 13 years, I only put a fake accent when I need to communicate with these tone deaf Americans and its quite exasperating, also all my friends who have lived here for over a decade still speak like we do back home and most of the time the intonation is to communicate with people who otherwise would not understand you or identify with you. I am sure that can not be a challenge for you a Nigerian in your own country... so my dear Gbemi and associates 'Do Keep it Real' and All the best!!!

Anonymous said...

Why is the focus on her accent and not her work? Who cares about the accent!! What we care about is the product and her brand!! She is doing well for herself! Fantastic Job Gbemi! At your age you have already accomplished so much!! Keep it up!!!

Anonymous said...

all you folks complaining on how cheap $500 is, i bet you don't even have a $ in your pocket!!! so what if she's promoting her brand! STOP all the hatting!!! In regards to her accent, its called proper english! what do you want her to sound like? If she talks any other way you guys would be the first to criticize her 9ja accent. what does your accent sound like.

Anonymous said...

All you folks calling her cheap, make una show me one $ for una pocket. abeg leave the girl jare. As for the comments on her accent, you all will be the first ones to call her razz and down grade her products if she spoke differently or sounded more nigerian. Instead of attacking the her, reflect on your own insecurities and figure out why her accent/look bothers you! she should be a motivation for you to get your crap together and maybe put some money in your pocket. BIG UPS girl!! do your thing.

Kudos Gbemi this is so encouraging, I wish all others will learn from you. As a makeup artist, I have tried out your products and they are so good especially your foundation. Wao I can imagine having one years supply of your products, that will be so kool. Nigerian y don't we learn to encourage anf support each other and stop this spirit of "black belle" it will take us no where . Once more Kudos Gbemi.

@ Debby u can call 08060888422

I have a feeling Gbemi is coming here and posting a lot of these 'Anonymous' comments. Girl, it is not easy to start a business and to face criticism, but how you take it is also a measure of your character. The truth is that the fone sounds fake. I also did my degrees in the States, and all I could hear was your 'th' factor. Someone said focus on the makeup but we had about 4 minutes of watching you talk which means you are part of the branding. Summary: Drop the annoying and distracting fone as Inferi and others advised. Keep it real.

Wow! yes yes, the accent is fake and she should drop it (they did say that the nigerian accent is the world's fifth sexiest so nothing is making me throw it out at all at at all) but men, that doesn't mean you shouldn't see beyond it. She is selling herself, her brand and her product. you can't kill her for trying. its not just 500 bucks she will be giving out. you will get the chance to create a eyeshadow in which whatever is made goes to your pocket, one year of free make-up and leave your mark on the chick herself (She does need a lot of work done on her eye make-up, that's for sure). its a hustling opportunity. do it if you can...
