    Love! Love! Love this video. I’m soo impressed at all the videos on BellaNaija today, I just had to comment.
    BTW datgidigirl: mind urself.. I know you are entitled to your opinion but isdatwhywearehere? Do you have a clue the challenges these artists face? and speaking of better, business-wise or vocally? if it’s vocally, why did Timi win Idols?please park well.if u’re too good @ comparing, show us what you’ve got. As for me, I love them both! They are young and both very talented.Besides,they are Niger Deltans and so am I.Timi, this is just a tip of the iceberg!Ijawboy,PH Son! I believe u die!
