Actress Ini Edo took the most criticism at this year’s awards. She was the target of millions of criticism from thousands of fans all over…! A lot of fashion critics, blogs, websites and fans are saying her dress choice was a big ‘No’, do you agree?

The actress however, came for haters, shutting down all the negativity, she took to her Instagram page saying:

“Now this beautiful work of art was designed n made by one man which Is what I call excellence in craftsmanship that lots of people can not boast of being successful at any form of craftsmanship or talent yet they are quick to judge n insult people who invest their time into productive creativity…keep your senseless unsolicited opinions to your self comment on ur pages and stay clear of my page if all u have to say is discredit other people’s hardwork . It’s only an ugly mind that would call this ugly. Enough said. @jbliving designer of life”

She continues:

“Thanks to my amazing team who made me look n feel so pretty last nite @ugo007makeme for this showstopping hair do @jbliving for this gorgeous gown which I absolutely love @gbengaartsmith jewelry @jbeautyfull flawless natural makeup💋 @yolandaokereke who styled and made all this possible..
