TV personality Stephanie Coker asks: Do Nigerian men prefer braids to weaves?

Beautiful TV personality, Stephanie Coker writes. Read below..

It’s no secret that women in Nigeria spend crazy amounts on weaves, some with the hope of completing their package to find “Mr Right.”
I often rock braids and big twists, and have noticed that I get a different type of attention and compliments from men in comparison to when I wear weaves. This got me thinking, “Do Nigerian men prefer braids to weaves”. Is the preferred hairstyle by our men the cheapest of them all? I asked some guys what they love about braids and these were their responses:

Choi, Cossy Orjiakor o! Parties bra-less at Halloween party. (pics)

I keep asking, does Cossy have nipples? How does she manage to hide them while showing off 70% of her boobs? She partied with friends at a Halloween party at Caliente night club last night...and put her massive boobs on display. See more photos after the cut...

Emergency response in Lagos..is it still working? Photo

That's not a dead man so it's not a graphic pic. Apparently he was knocked down by hit and run car at 10pm yesterday Friday October 31st.

But he said until he left the scene around midnight, the emergency response team hadn't shown up, and there was no traffic at this time as the road was free.

So, we need to know; does emergency response work in Lagos? Why does it take them forever to get to the scene of an accident? The relevant authorities need to look into this biko...
