      Why is it that all the fun & activities always happen in Lagos?
      As usual, nothing’s going on in Abuja. I’m new to Abuja & all alone this Easter (sleep, sleep, sleep). Not even a get-together event where you can @ least see some nicely-curved ladies.
      Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Dry……
