    Sometimes I wonder where D’banj and Don Jazzy would be, if humility ruled that friendship. They had sooo much potential TOGETHER as a team. It’s a big lesson to all.

    obladi oblada lalalalalalala life goes on. Suddenly suddenly suddenly, networking seem to be the way out now as ori yato so ori . Mr. Oliver Twist, we wish u all the best and please dont get it twisted again . Easy does it. Some lessons must have been learnt and with a better sense of humility, respect and goodwill, the bones shall rise again.
