Ono’s Diary: Hip Hop Awards 2012

Hello readers, hope you all had good weekends, I know I did! So on Saturday October 20 I found myself at the Hip Hop World Awards 2012 popularly known as the “Headies”. I had never attended the Headies in the three years it has been on so when I got a call that I had a ticket to attend this one, I decided to go see for myself what actually goes on since it was one of the most highly anticipated events in the Nigerian entertainment industry and the hype for it in the last two months has been tremendous.

 

The invitation said the awards night to start at 7pm so I decided to get there for past eight saying I would arrive a bit fashionably late, hmmmm… I was pleasantly surprised to see that at that time the red carpet entry hadn’t even started.

 

So I proceeded to sit at the Eko hotel lobby and watch music and entertainment lovers who waited patiently for the star-studded awards night while pre occupying themselves at the grounds of the venue by mingling with celebrities and friends. It was quite interesting to watch people from the corner I sat.

 

Red carpet entry finally started at about 10:30pm and it was cameras, lights and photographers everywhere, it was quite a nice set up. The show/awards finally kicked off at about past mid night, before that time I was too tired of waiting and decided to grab a drink with friend and go home.

 

Before I left though, I took a few pictures for my diary.

 

I wore a graphic prints fitted long sleeves dress from Topshop, paired with a black studded sandals from Faith, green snake skin bag from Ahme Couture and a green and gold necklace from a vintage shop in New York.

 

What do you think?

 

Also, l am wearing this gold bracelet with precious stones I got recently from Butler and Wilson London, I simply love it!
