    I dont expect any lady to proudly show off her smoking skills in public.Its bad enough that “smoking is bad for ur health”,but public show of it is unlady like or do I say “unafrican-lady-like” (ok! more like it).

      Wow what ignorance from what seems to be an educated person. Please elaborate as to what u mean by “unafrican-lady” like???????

      As for showing off her smokng skills, it is evident that this picture was taken without her consent……..

      Na wha oohh, ur eye sharp sha, u didn’t see anything else!!!! Kmt

      Absolutely loved the entire show, good job guys

      And what if the photograph was taken without her consent??? It goes a long way to show what extent u can go when no one is watching. And do u by any chance know the meaning of the word “Ignorance”? Obviously not.

      Ignorance (or witlessness) is a state of being uninformed (lack of knowledge).[1] The word ignorant is an adjective describing a person in the state of being unaware and is often used as an insult.

      Ignorance is distinguished from stupidity, although both can lead to “unwise” acts.

      Someone needs to go back to school, common sense is obviously not common

      Well it concerns us because second-hand smoke kills. Cancer brigade: if you want to kill yourselves that’s your choice, but don’t take unwilling participants down with you.

      Furthermore, na so so Absolut, Jaggermeister, Belvedere, Moet & Chandon, Olmeca these days. Alcohol-related diseases and deaths are also real. Fetal alcohol exposure is a leading cause of mental retardation; young ladies take note.

      These are not just my opinions, they are facts.

      Shattap! Reason & reason one more time b4 u comment. Anyway, by their comments u shall know them. Even manufacturers of cigarettes acknowledge that “smokers are liable to die young”.Surfix to say, its bad 4 anyone’s health.

      one more last thing:the use “park well” is uncalled for in the circumstance. mstcheewww!!

    All the health conscious people using valuable time advocating for a total ban on smoking in public places, I seriously do not believe that Bella Naija is the right forum to do this, I suggest writing to the Ministry Of Health……

    every one looks soo beautiful, missing naij 🙁

    Btw.. Statistically you are more likely to die in a car accident than to die from second hand smoke, trust me guys, in naij second hand smoke is the least of your problems…… Let’s focus on more important issues
