    YAY!!!! Usually the first person to comment never has much to say but I do oo. I want to take this moment to thank the whole BN team for always overfilling my thirsty cup with juicy and informative stories. Through your eyes, we’ve come to love and embrace the beauty, the fashion and glamour which are all part of the modern Nigeria.Through your uplifting articles, we’ve seen and still continue to see the potentials , abilities and fearlessness of the Nigerian youth. You started this four years ago to enlighten us about Nigeria and just look at the great job you’ve done so far. Through your daily fights, we now see Nigeria as the breeding ground for sharp,innovative, hardworking and determined people and no longer a resting place for 419 petit bandits. You’re part of Nigeria’s history now. Big congrats and keep up the good work.
