    I wish Kim Kardashian could take notes for next time. Thou shalt not squeeze their swollen feet into pinching heels that maketh thy legs look like rising bread in thy shoes. Thou shalt not stuff thyself and swollen breasteses into fitted dresses by force in an attempt to look sexy. Mtchew

      Wishing you a safe delivery dear Asaa. As we Yoruba pray, you’ll kneel with one leg/feet and get up with the other. We shall hear the voices of both Mother and child in Jesus name I pray.

      Meanwhile, Dakore looks lovely in both looks but the green dress is my favourite.

    Lovely dresses,pretty woman. Naija celebs take a cue from this,it is good to be decent. It shouldn’t be all about the fame and making money b4 settling down.keep your body for your Mr right,enough of living the fast life with aristos all in the name of taking care of your family and buying houses/cars.Nothing is hidden under the sun.

    Beautiful woman, Mrs Akande. Hubby also looks good. I love her more in natural hairstyle, it complement her face. God will grant you safe delivery in Jesus name.
