      And what exactly is wrong with primark? Even people like Kate Moss shop at primark. then one
      I have never stepped out of the shores of nigeria, probabaly seen pics of westfield online, comes here and tries to act all bougy. And yes I shop at primark, and other high street stores as well as high end ones its called mixing hi and low end. Cannot stand people like this.

      Petty comments like this will hold you back from greatness. The year is still young. You can make a change for the better. I believe in you.

      You will be there shopping at Gucci, Chanel and YSL and I will go to the “Primarks” and “bend down selects” and save and invest my hard earned money. Keeping up with the Jones is not as cool for some of us anymore. If it is cool for you, by all means go right ahead. Do you and let some of us do us.

    The pictures of people having conversations were really good. Maybe good things can come out of this. Perhaps it can foster collaboration with the Nigerians who didn’t leave and build better things. The violinist XD (my favorite instrument)
