      I know you’re entitled to your opinion but what’s your say on the issue raised in the video? Could we talk about it instead of Stella’s manufacturing exploits (or lack of) at a smartphone factory? Be blessed!

      I’m not a fan of stella’s videos, but for some reason I watched today… then I came down to see ur comment /opinion as we call it….. n I had an instant opinion about it—-maybe, just maybe ur ability to focus on d wrong thing, is largely to blame for your ending up in a one chance marriage….. she’s passing a necessary social message n this is really all u deduced from it???

      Ha! What has her marriage got to do with anything? This comment was petty, highly unnecessary and sounded like you were beefing her, (and also quite childish)
      Ahn ahn, the girl made an unnecessarily personal comment on a post , can we forget about it already and stop digging it up at every opportunity?

      Hmmmm. One of the faceless people who only criticize
      others. That’s who you are. I am not a fan of Stella, neither do I
      hate her but the issue she has raised here is a very sensitive and
      relevant one. However, people like you just type rubbish and choose
      to trivialize such matters. I am 100% sure you live a miserable
      life and choose to take it out on the few who try to do the good
      that you may never do in your lifetime. What Stella does with her
      life is her damn business but what she has talked about in this
      video should be food for thought for you. Maybe the day you will
      get hurt by a distracted driver, you will remember this

      and by the way, for those using mobile phones while driving, your mobile makes you four times more likely to crash.It won’t kill you to put it away.Good Luck.

    Just kept comparing “Stella Damascus Diaries” and ” Toke´s ” weekly you-tube videos…the former talks more about salient ills of the society while the latter shares her credulous talks and proffers her unfounded solutions to them..

    On the other hand, mobile devices have also helpd people to be more social. I have a friend who you wil never catch smiling except when he is chatting online. U ll hear him laff and then stop.
