Being a talk show host, is a dream come true for me. I’ve always wanted to have a platform where I can air my views on topics that I’m passionate about.

      She said it now. The Kalabari stock (note the spelling in Bella is wrong) can only be found in Rivers State. They are Ijaws.

    Guys question from South Africa. How does it feel to share a country with a people who have dedicated their whole existence to,worshipping the ground Arabians walk sorry but if this was South Africa…there is no way that tribe would be as popular as it there. We are not very big on foreigners here. But it CULD just be that’s how we are.. #Hausa/Fullani
