Notable Nigerians Then & Now #Surulere



I stumbled on my baby pictures recently and I laughed so hard. Then I decided to put it side by side with one of my most recent pictures and gosh, the difference was crystal clear! Change, is such a constant thing!

Motivated by my earlier discovery of my baby pictures, I decided to dig up pictures of celebrities and this time, I couldn’t stop laughing. Here’s to a good laugh guys, enjoy!

tiwa savage

I didn’t know that Tiwa Savage has always been this pretty. This was the first picture i dug out from my archives.

segun arinze

Look who we found here! I never imagined that our very own Segun Arinze looked like this as a young man, but I’ve always thought that he is a real cool dude.

2face idibia

Growing up, I fantasized all day about 2 Face, little did I know that he was a very handsome young chap just like i was a very pretty little girl.

wole soyinka

I have always been in awe of Wole Soyinka as a result of my undying love for reading and writing, my favorite of all his poems was ‘Civilian & Soldier’. I guess its my love for complex writings that draws my attention to his poems.

onyeka onwenu

Beauty in its most natural form! I am a huge fan of Onyeka Onwenu and when I think of her songs and performances, the word ‘Classic’ comes to my mind.

oge okoye

This is one lady I always thought was beautiful in a different way. I admired her too while growing up. Could it be boil on the left eye in that baby picture? Well, she is a very beautiful lady now I must say.


From a tiny little girl to a fabulous popular model, Oluchi Onweagba is one of the most famous models in Africa today.


Dapo Oyebanji popularly known as D’banj is a formidable force in the Music/Entertainment industry. In as much as I’m not a big fan of him, I can’t help but move my body at the sound of his music.


One of the most famous producers/artist is the music/entertainment industry, Don jazzy has a cool demeanor that makes him really attractive.

Lastly to our President Goodluck Jonathan, I do not think his looks changed much.
