    ifeoma williams has the Eze family cheekbones and smile, she and nkechi eze could pass for twins. stunning women. but ify, i don’t like that belt, too big and unnecessary. dabota lawson looked much better when she was dark skinned.

    SN: Any Kdrama fans in the house? Toyin Saraki’s dress was worn by Uhm Jeongwa’s character, Ban Ji Yeon in the drama A Witch’s Romance (Eps 6&7). Ok, I’m done.

      I am a huge Kdrama fan and kpop fan too. I never thought I would meet a kdrama fan on BN. Yes you are right Uhm Jung-hwa wore that dress at the end of episode 6 and beginning of episode 7. What other drama’s are you watching?
