    @Bobbydox. what are you smoking. Nigeria looks like a war zone or garbage dumpsite. Smells like one as well. A land of unattractive people to match. Did you mean Nicaragua??

  • Gbemmy’s December 28, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    @ Laila you are freaking sick in the brain, are you saying dis to get attention here or you saying it because you are crazy?

  • Chic December 28, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    Shameless girls don’t they have any morals!
    Ashawos!
    Mschewww Nigerians like to copy copy see their dirty bum bums!
    God forbid my daughter becomes a cheerleader!
    Chei Naja babes have lost it!
