    Ok let me get this straight. Somebody has posted Yusuf’s picture so that he takes the hint and do what what exactly ? I don’t understand become your boo thing. Will he contact BellaNaija to confirm who posted or ???? Is this love / boo game for celebrities only ? Others nko like me and other ardent readers who are celebrities within their rights and want play too? . Although I still don’t get it and am laughing my head off, I think it sounds interesting. By the way, how tall is he?

      I seen this guy before. Very well mannered and reserved. Always busy runing around. We had a chat with few friends he talked less and smiled althrough. Apparently he designs for Newcastle captain. Sunshine if you want him just follow his twitter handle and stop asking all this jamboree question. His a big shot in northeast England Newcastle

    and put rub some lip balm on it…..

    please BN LEAVE instagram games at instagram where they belong!! BN should be aspiring to be a more credible source for young Africans, if by any chance you want to participate with such “fun” game it should be focused on young Africans doing positive deeds for our continent and the diaspora. i am sure there are plenty hot ones!! showcasing a hot man who is clearly just working his average 9 to 5 in the fashion world can be very relevant and vain! can BN pls continue to be the quality in the many quanity(blogs) out there.

    he is a designer and stylist. one of the most prominent black boys if not the most prominent guy in newcastle.. very creative and handsome. he has great smile but he always puts a straight face, when is walking in town

  30. Sunshine

    February 4, 2014 at 8:13 pm

    He is okay but I think I’ll pass. I am “strangely” fixated on my igbo brothers so BN please let me know when one comes along. Tall oh!!!
    I honestly think it is great idea. BN is a reputable media (for now oh!!!) and if you have been following and forming a profile, you will have deduced that readers and commentators are healthy. It takes just “one” opportunity for that knee quaking meet of a life time. So hey !!! Why not through BN.

      February 4, 2014 at 11:11 pm

      lol hope you taller than him… his a heart rob tho…..check his hight on twitter or instagram @iamuzayap you seem a bit dstressed about how tall he is.
