      Why are some people so negative and jealous . Anyone who says anything bad about this cover is just a bitter person. Jackie appiah, RMD, Mo and the rest of you are looking good. When is the magazine out?

      SMH. It would have been better if they just shot everyone in one scene or two if everyone can’t fit then just joint the two. Forced photoshop.
