We are more than grateful for your votes on the best dressed actress. At first, we had a long list but we had to drop some names for obvious reasons. Through votes, we shortlisted the names to three.The names are Omotola Jolade-Ekehinde,Rita Dominic and Genevieve Nnaji. Aside the votes so far gathered from readers of http://www.niyitabiti.blogspot.com/, I also went out of my way to get journalists,advertising executives and celebrities to vote on the contest. The target was 40 Nigerian celebrities and 40 Nigerian journalists, who cover brands and advertising, entertainment, fashion and style.
I assured all that voted that their votes would not be revealed individually, rather it would be a collective one. I went through the submissions of the various voters and I have been collating the result with the help of some of my friends.
Those that have so far voted included Mr. Ayo Shonaiya, a producer who is resident in the UK, Mr. Steve Babaeko a top advertising executive in Nigeria, Mr. Kunle Afolayan, actor and producer in Nigeria, Mr. Ayeni Adekunle, a top entertainment journalist in Nigeria, Miss Nonye Iwuagwu, another leading entertainment writer with Punch Newspapers,Mr.Uche Olehi of Encomium Magazine, Bella Naija a top style and entertainment blogger, Tosyn Bucknor, another media executive and event manager per excellence,Oge, a top presenter on Brila FM has also voted,Stella Dimoko Korkus of Encomium magazine has also sent in her votes... pardon me the list is just too long.Most of them voted through my facebook, email, phone calls and text messages.
Right now, I am talking to some fashion designers so that the election won't be rigged at all.
From what has so far been gathered, Rita Dominic seems to be leading, closely followed by Genevieve Nnaji.Somehow, the story seems to be changing from what we earlier bargained.How? Alot of people are calling for more names to be added to the list and more time before the result is announced. Ebube Nwagbo,Dakore Egbuson and Rukki Sanda are some of the names that have been consistently mentioned.If you think they desrve a place on the list please let us know. Meanwhile you can still cast your votes.
Already, we have wonderful prizes in form of expensive make ups and clothes from a lady I will simply call KU in the United States of America. Pearl Shillingford, another person that deals with top hair products for celebrities has also partnered with us from Canada (She is not even a Nigerian but she is hooked to what she reads about our celebrities) .You can visit her website: www.eyecandylacewigs.com
The great thing is that someone is also going to win wonderful gifts. For instance, wonderful dresses would be sent directly by KU to the reader we choose anywhere in the world.
The winner would be announced later this month. Please, click on the link below to view comments and cast your votes http://niyitabiti.blogspot.com/2008/06/so-who-is-hottest-in-nollywood.html
