Yes! One way or the other we’ve all thought about it. It
might have been just a date, a sexual encounter, some even
go as far as planning a full-out wedding ceremony: with
a celebrity. So we decided we would give the chance to share
the ideal celebrity date. Although Tuface Idibia was the
popular female favorite. There were definitely some very
interesting Naija Celebrity picks.
NE asked: You’re on a date with a Nigerian/African/Black
Celebrity. Who is it? What’s the date like?
Something about open tooth combined with razzmatism and
a killer instinct like she possess . It would be a casual
knowing me knowing you kind of date. I'd just like to talk
about the most important things in life with her from faith
to fears because I'm all about bringing the best out of
people ( her acting needs to be polished ).We would go to
the Finger Licking bukateria with the long benches. Going
to eat Naija style, best believe I’ll be decked up as casually
as possible so Khaki/Chinos pants and a Polo Shirt and a
pair of loafers.

I like funny people and I think he is by far the most hilarious
Nigerian Actor. Every movie he's in has me doubled over
laughing. We would probably go out to eat or something of
that sort. That way we would be able to talk, something
tells me he will have me laughing all evening. I wouldn't
dress up too much. I barely ever do, not even to church.
I'm a lightweight tomboy. So maybe jeans with a nice shirt
and sneakers, if I did wear heels they'd be very low to

I admire and respect him because of all that he has accomplished.
He stayed true to himself. Going on a date with him hopefully
would give me an opportunity to get to know more about him.
I enjoy looking at people’s expressions when they speak
especially when I want to get to know them better. I would
want the date to be spontaneous – which means I would like
to do several things and spend as much time as possible
with him – mostly outdoors. A place like Universal studios
would be fun I think because we could go on different rides
and roller coasters. There are some scary rides there, so
it’d be fun to see if he’d be relaxed or nervous. I might
have the opportunity to ‘pretend’ to be scared, and if he’s
not too scared, I may have the luxury of having his arms
around me. LOL…We would get something to eat after going
on countless rides. This would give me an opportunity to
get to know his likes and dislikes with regards to food
and see how he would treat whoever serves us. At the end
of the day, I would like to go to a reggae club. I love
dancing to reggae music and I would love to dance with him.
I would dress comfortably. I would wear jeans (I always
feel comfortable in them), flats, and a cute top while at
Universal studios. When we go clubbing, I would wear a sexy
dress and stilettos and killer perfume. A date is not fun
if one person is having fun and the other isn’t so I won’t
mind partaking in activities he enjoys.
I will coax him to sing ‘African Queen’ to me or maybe
the ‘I love you, I love you, I love you, nwuyem o…’ part.

There is NOTHING better than
a chocolate brown man with a strong back and bright white
teeth. We would have dinner on a secluded island beach.
He would have on an all white linen outfit that flowed in
the breeze. I would wear a loooong patchwork denim skirt
and sandals, with a white halter top.

Reading January’s issue, his biography looked very interesting
and his personality seemed like one that I would gravitate
towards. I would imagine it would be a very casual date.
Maybe going to a park. Relaxing and talking. Nothing intense.
I have NO idea what I would wear. Jeans maybe…
I would prefer we go for a concert so that it eases the
tension and I would wear pants because I am more comfortable
-Julia, Canterbury Kent.
My soul sis-star. The original
plan for the date would be to go to a nice quiet cafe or
restaurant, but first we would (this is clearly hypothetical)
talk for hours on end, about the world we live in, our philosophies
on life, how to make the world a better place one person
at a time, religion, spirituality, the children of the future.
Then we would talk about the scripts we have written and
read each other's works. After hours of engrossing conversation
we would realize the whole day has flown by and it's too
late for restaurant outings. No problem, we can have fun
cooking together and enjoy our meals; whether they be masterpieces
or burnt to the core (I've been known to burn water in the
past... long ago though ;) haha!) we would still have a
good time. Jokes will be traded, laughs will be shared...
it would just be a great time. Then her four children would
run in, and that right there would be the test for whether
date 2 would ever take place... ah ha! Either way, please
believe I will come away with at least a peck on the lips
from Ms. Hill. Yessir!
I would wear whatever came to mind that day. I'm too spontaneous
to plan what I will wear for a casual date. I only plan
for interviews or highly important meetings (which I have
had many of... yeah right).
