    FAR is a simple, stylish and amazing woman who understands the dignity of womanhood despite being an On Air Personality.

      Despite???? Please explain. Are you saying OAP’s dont normally understand the dignity of womanhood?

    Same here. But if everyone can’t stand fake people, we need to ask who exactly is fake?

    i will never forget this lady in my favourite movie KEEPING FAITH with genevieve nnaji.
    Excellent under rated actress, she kinda reminds me of Bimbo Akintola – another underrated actress. We need to see more of such kind in movies and not this mediocre actresses we are bombarded with. I love her acting.
