    without being “touched by Pink” the reality of cancer sometimes doesn’t feel close to home. but when you see folks like Funke Akindele, Darey and co “touched by pink…” kinda kept me at the edges of my seat. the reality just dawned on me as i read this post!!! Kudo’s goes to Genevieve magazine for this brilliant initiative. The Nigerian Entertainment Report

    This is a very good cause and campaign, Thumbs up for Betty Irabor and Genevieve magazine crew for this cause, a lot of women have died from breast cancer because of ignorance, my mum lost a friend to breast cancer last year and my cousin removed a lump from her breast in December 2008 thank God for breast cancer awareness, my cousin would have properly be dead by now.

I am glad to see Nigerian’s are largley conscious of this illness and making great effort to create further awareness. Kudos to the brilliant brains & hands that brought this to light. God bless you all.

    It is always a joy to see Dakore be it in a movie or helping a worthy cause. What is happening with her these days as I have not seen her in any movies for sometime now.
