Throwback Thursdays: Ciara, Will Smith, Snoop Lion, Omotola Jalade et al.

August 22, 2013

Throwback Thursdays has become quite the trend since the take of Instagram. So I thought, I might as well make it a regular feature on ABY. i do love these throwback pictures. And isn’t it funny that a snapshot which was D.O.P.E only a few years ago just makes you keel over with laughter today? We all have tonnes of Throwback Thursday-worthy pictures. These are the few I’ll begin with:

Nollywood actress Chika Ike was quite the poser back in the day. check out the snapshot of her taking that phone call. Classic pose back then. I think I have a similarly embarrassing flick.Β

Oh gosh this picture of Snoop Lion (then Snoop Doggy Dogg) and Britney Spears had me ROTFL. britney’s style has definitely evolved since then. Snoop Lion on the other hand has had more name changes than style evolution.

Ciara graduated and went on to be one of the best female dancers in the music industry. She also has one of the best bods, and is an absolute style queen.Β

Hahaha. I am not sure what movie this scene is out of (Blood Sister, maybe) but check out Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jalade and Patience Ozokwor doing what they do best. Watch Blood Sister online here.

    I love the old styles , i think these retro looks look better than modern looks most of the time πŸ™‚ more so the 80s than the 90s though . the 90s was a bit dull. Love you blog sister
