    OAN,i used to love Emmy Collins designs during the days of True Love magazine. These days with his too much criticism I just feel sorry for him. Most people he criticizes have better bank balances than him.His suit in this pic is even ill fitting. The left shoulder is longer than the right, oh well

    • mrs chidukane

      March 29, 2014 at 3:32 pm

    Ace photographer kelechi amadi-obi is, unbeknownn to most, a lawyer. His elder brother, sylvester amadi-obi and younger sister are also lawyers.
    His late father too was a justice in owerri- so you can say they are a family of lawyers. 🙂
