Celebrating Christmas with Dakore & Ubong!

21 December 2017
The festive season is upon us with everyone celebrating life, love and family!

Uti and Helen kicked off the show looking all sorts of festive and fabulous in red and white. We have to admit that we're in love with the looks they pull off every week but they really went the extra mile this time. They even treated us to some hilarious renditions of their favourite carols both local and international though Helen was certainly pushing the limits of what constitutes a carol.  The holidays are all about family and there's nothing like enjoying quality entertainment with the whole family so it was only right that our hosts count down the five, hottest movies coming your way on Africa Magic!

Closing off the show we were joined by actress, Dakore Egbuson Akande who looked as radiant as ever. She opened up about why we haven't seen her in the as many movies lately revealing that she's been sorting out her residency in the USA as well as juggling work with the needs of her growing family. She did make it clear however that she's always been descerning about what roles she takes on in order to completely immerse herself in a character and give 100%!

Another lady who delivered a stellar performance and caught Uti's eye in the process is Ubong, Abasi Essein. She did a hilarious impression of Helen that got social media raving and so it was only right to bring her on set so she could co-host what was probably the most adorable segment in Jara history.

While visibly shy she held her own and melted Uti & Dakore's hearts before everyone signed the giant pillow and Helen brought out a giant, Christmas cake that she spent hours made herself (wink wink). We don't know about you but we think THAT's how you celebrate in style! What was your own fave moment from last night's episode? Tweet us using #AMJara, we'd love to hear your thoughts.
