I love my fans so much, they are very supportive“.

      Oh dear…this is such a myopic comment. Pray tell. Only pretty faces are allowed on the internet lately? Perhaps, this explains why you have been kind enough to wear a ‘face’ shield. in this picture!

    No no no, somebody tell me am not seeing well, no wonder omosexy is coined from the word sexy, it’s pretty much obvious that this woman is damn too sexy and as per the award, that is a nice one, a bold statement of what she started almost 2 decades ago.
