|Fabulous! Do you think there is that basket thingy||under the dress?|
She told me to go to a designer at the street just before Mobil on Awolowo road.
She said she patronizes only Nigerian designers. Yes Ma'am.
On my way...I stopped by a certain designer shop - name starting with 'O' ..I think number One Hundred and something ...the clothes there are beaded, quite heavy when you wear them.
I went in; 3 sales girls...I was looking like a ragamuffin though (as I usually do sometimes off stage). One girl was nice. The other two looked like they could see that there was no money in my account. The security men were nicest. Helped me re-park my car and were generally polite.
Anyway I touched the dresses and tops...40k, 35k, 46K...etc... Odiegwu!!!
I could have picked any.. really... if it suited the purpose cos Madam Event Planner told me she will pay so who am I to not align...but nothing worked.
Moved on to the shop by Mobil. I walked, cos traffic was a mess with fuel queues and all (GMB save us oh)...the sales girl there was nice.
Nothing that was my size interested me...show back, show leg, show something. The things I liked were not my size and I learnt some secrets in that shop. ..Apparently people rent dresses so don't kill yourself and go and be buying million dollar designer dresses to attend events and keep up with the Kardashians when you can just rent a dress and pay for drycleaning.
So I moved on to my current domain...Festac...zilch!
Even tried a bridal shop ....Nope...either the dresses were indecent or not my size or too motherly...finally got to Lagos Island oh....by the time I crawled by 3 shops I found the perfect dress...My size, covers my assets and most importantly I can wear it again and again.
Compromised a bit on the size of the ball of the gown though.
The event was a blast. Photos loading soon.
Lesson learnt: Loose weight again oh Chigo.
Secondly...be friendly to designers..they can hook you up!!
Dear people of the world, friends, family, well wishers and colleagues in the entertainment business. The pix above is just to notify and clearly show that there is an Event Compere/MC named Chigo; referred to as 'Chigo Compere' and there is a Singer/ Comedienne named Chioma; referred to as 'Chigul'. They are very different but each one unique and strong in their own entertainment space with different routines and skills. They also have both been known to host radio shows while Chigul has hosted a TV show or more. They are both hilarious in their unique ways but please note they are very different. God has plenty talented children with diverse manifestations. kindly take note and share if you can. Thank you.

Good morning dear friends and family...Hey my God! Woke up this morning to see a scary story, I just glanced through cos fear no let me read every detail...so my man Steve Harvey- a celebrated American Comedian, Compere and talk show host was hosting the Miss Universe pageant and even though the teleprompter gave the correct winner, he announced another country as the winner. I wanted to just enter under my bed as I read it...that should be compere disaster nightmare number 2... Number 1 would probably be falling down on stage or having a wardrobe malfunction. Awww I feel so bad for him. Trust social media people they nearly ate him alive. I pray his publicist helps him come out of this unscathed cos this is a comedian's comedy.He probably believed so strongly the winner should have been the girl he announced then forgot to read. Chaiii. #comperenightmare
