    Oh, Idris, why so single? Hmmmm?? Yer not really my type but yet you look quite obtainable in these photos.

    And to the person above who noted he wore shorts to a press conference. Biko, dem no dey Naija where everything must-to get “red carpet” treatment. Iz not an award ceremony or a premier, na just to siddon make people dey kweshon you about ya film.
