    Leave them to be hating Uti out loud na! what they do not know is that they are dragging more attention to him! why brands keep using him for stuff when they know that once his face shows, there will be too much attention, be it negative or positive. wake up haters, your strategy is backfiring! lol
    Bella thnx jor abeg supply me with more Super-Uti photos! thats one sure way to keep the blog on fire style!..lmao!
