This Former Governor’s Wife Is Getting Dragged Online For The Bizarre Makeup She Wore To An Event

May 30, 2017

The Lagos History Lecture, one of the events held to celebrate Lagos at 50, took place on the 24th of May 2017. One of the many prominent people in attendance was former governor of Imo and Lagos state, Nduibisi Kanu.

Military governor of Imo state from 1976 – 1977 and military governor of Lagos from 1977 to 1978.

At his side was his wife, Gladys Nduibisi-Kanu. That is who we’re really here to talk about. This is a picture of them from the event.

This picture was put up by Dele Momodu on his Ovation Instagram page a couple of days after the event. Do you see what’s funny here? No? Okay we’ll tell you.

CHECK OUT THAT FACE BEAT! Let’s zoom in and take a closer look. Madam clearly went to that event prepared to slay left and right.

She went to that event casket ready! LOL

In a normal world, no one would care about this but we don’t live in a normal world and we live in Nigeria so after this picture surfaced, everyone collectively asked this question.

And then immediately began to drag her. Let us start with this person that voiced the first thought that came into our minds after seeing this.

This person that genuinely believes that there is treachery afoot.

This person that wonders if Dele Momodu was trying to throw shade by releasing this picture.

This person that kinda spoke the truth.

This person that thinks the makeup artist should face legal action.

This person that gave the woman sound advice.

We here at Zikoko also have a couple of theories of what look exactly Mama Gladys was going for that day.

There’s a chance she was trying to look like The Mad Hatter from Alice In Wonderland.

In which case she nailed it.

Or maybe she was trying to look like Johnny Depp from Sweeney Todd.

Wow. She really has a thing for Johnny Depp characters sha.

The Corpse Bride from the The Corpse Bride.

Bobrisky

It sure looks like they both use Tony Montana powder as foundation.

Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas

Squint and you’ll see the resemblance.

This low budget Nollywood ghost.

Maybe the leprosy look is really in right now.

Morticia Addams from The Addams Family

You know what? We take it back. Morticia Addams is too fabulous to be dragged into this.

Gladys Ndubuisi-Kanu, your makeup artist doesn’t have your best interests at heart.

You need to fire them.
