5 Nollywood Actresses Who Cannot Dress To Save Their Lives

share on:

Fashion and style are two different sides of a coin and for some people, just because they have the money to follow certain fashion trends they basically jump into the silly assumptions that they are stylish. If you are of that opinion, then I would advice you have a rethink because no matter how much money you have, it certainly can’t make you stylish.

Buy all the designer and high end brands you want to, you can still look as trashy as Ice Prince’s trashcan EP because as we know ‘you can take a monkey out of the bush but you can’t take the bush out of the monkey’.

There are a couple of Nigerian actors that we expect to stay fashionable at all times, but their money couldn’t afford them a good style. If they were to dress to save their lives, then they would have been long dead and gone.


Each time I see a headline with Mercy Johnson’s name I get discouraged to read the article because I don’t want to spoil my day with arguments of how awful her outfit choices are. It seems to me as though she never looks at the mirror after putting together an appalling  outfit.

I totally understand that whatever you wear, your talent is still going to take you to the top but you can’t be at the top and still look this horrible because this one fact will be used against you darling. The only person she seems to be more fashionable than is her daughter.

Mercy Johnson please have MERCY on our sights and hire a professional stylist, biko.




It looks like Mercy is standing on the shoe or it's a case of the shoe wearing her?

I am a fan of your real talent but certainly not a fan of your horrible style. I personally think a special style chart should be created to help you out with how best to look. We know you are curvy, but sometimes you need to pick a perfect size that fits well instead of the undersized clothes you choose to rely on to enhance your curves.

Another thing I noticed is you try applying a lot of makeup to take the attention away from your awful outfit but in the end, you complicate matters for yourself because it becomes Awful outfit + Outlandish makeup. We need a CHANGE in this new year pleaseeeee!







Gossip says that Chika Ike is a good example of ‘money can’t buy style’ but we don’t pay attention to gossips so…

However, what explanation can one give for shopping in some of the best boutiques and you still can’t look stylish? The perfect answer is CHIKA IKE. I still can’t believe she has been in Lagos in the midst of stylish actors like Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jalade and still not learnt a thing or two from them.

A few days ago a picture of the actress hit the internet, in which she wore denim on denim but in a very sad way. It was a total misrepresentation of the denim trend. The jacket was undersized and whoever advised her to button the first and last button is worse than an Edo witch.

Most people have concluded that they can’t be bothered about Annie’s style but I still have hope for better days ahead. Annie’s outfit choices spell out ratchet more often than not and I wonder if she is really paying someone to dress her up that way or she’s trying too hard to remain in the game or impress someone or look relevant- which is it? Because whichever, she is trying too hard and getting it all wrong.





I will rather Ini Edo spends more money on getting a stylist than on cars. Because you can’t be riding a classy car and still look shabby. There is just  this sadness I feel in the deepest part of my heart when I see someone dressing below expectation and I would ordinarily expect that Ini Edo would team up a good style with luxurious cars, but she obviously doesn’t share the same view.

A lot of people might pretend to be cool with your style but I don’t ever want to get judged for not saying this; Employ a new stylist to help you out with your wardrobe choices, that’s the best you can do to save our sights.







Hey ladies, take some style Inspiration from fellow actors like Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic and a couple of other stylish women in the industry. But I will strongly advice that you make Genevieve Nnaji and Rita Dominic your style chart, these ladies have a style for every occasion.

Genevieve Nnaji

    1. They make the industry look bad with their dressing and you make this blog look bad with your grammar. It’s ‘these’ not ‘this’

  1. I love mercy Johnson, I really do. I’ve even come to terms with her terrible fashion choices. I just console myself with her talent. Ini edo’s problem isn’t style, it’s the sense to put it together. Genevieve anyday! Anytime! Her simplicity is killing!

  2. I doubt Annie idibia even has a stylist to start with What did 2face see in this razz girl. Ini Edo breaks my heart every now and then. That Halima girl should give up already and try out wrapper for a change

  3. Halima abubakar should pack her things and head right back to the jungle she came out of. I’ve never seen her in any movie. Infact I can count, if at all I’ve seen her. She just tries too hard to make an impression that can’t be made even in 20years. The other day, she wore something that looks like the black waste bag. She needs to get herself some class. *sips tea* *flips hair*

  4. Nice article…made me laugh hard…but to be honest I love Ini Edo and Mercy Johnson tho. but just need them to improve in their fashion style as celebrities
