    It upsets me when more than one person is in a picture but just one name is given! Please do your research and edit appropriately rather than make the other person(s) seem non existent. They are in the picture aren’t they? Don’t ignore them, find out who they are; at the very least label them as guest(s) before releasing such pictures.

      Lame talk…..very daft and lame talk. Did you notice the other oyibo men, who wore Ankara. Suits/Jackets ? It’s obvious you don’t get invited to classy events so I don’t expect you to know any better.

      Make una shine una eyes well well before yapping people. Some oyinbo men and the oyinbo lady wore Ankara. Why not wear ankara to a Vlisco opening event??? #proudlylovingankarababe

    I love that a lot of people wore ankara to the event.

    That ‘Q” trademark is quite disconcerting, for some reason it kept drawing my eyes like it was highlighting something in the pictures for me to see.

    After being censored and gagged twice by BN, i would have to find a creative way to express myself and be heard. Here it goes, A certain person, would always be dramatic in his way of dressing. He would keep on with his “in your face dressing” so much that we become less and less shocked at it, stop finding it a big deal, accept it and then applaud it as the best way to go. Thats how bad behaviour becomes accepted.
