    I knew dindinrin Nigerians will be here to comment about what does not concern them. Oniyeye people, if it was the King of their villages, they wouldn’t even click on the link. Those guys still have town criers, oyinbo man took away your own town criers and other cultures and enslaved your petty minds- you continue to see you and yours as inferior to them and theirs. Pathetic lot!

    The Queen is a 90 year old lady. How many 90 year olds do you hear about everyday. It is a great age to attain and well worth celebrating. Whenever the King of your village celebrates his own 90th please post some photos and we shall also celebrate with you.

    You are an idiot and a racist and will most certainly die in poverty. The white man is not the cause of your useless life…look inwards

      Why are you so pained so much that you throw curses on yourself? Are you that sad and bitter or did those words throw up your neo-colonial mindset that it hurts so much. You agree or disagree, why so much negative energy? Na wa for you o, better don’t die of high blood pressure at your young age.

    Ofcourse the Queen her majesty repeats clothes and accessories eg shoes, carries only that purse, wears almost the same pearl ear rings and necklace. Now wait for it, She does her own hair and makeup. Talk about modesty. The woman does not eat rice, potatoes and pasta. She has been on a low carb diet almost her entire life!
