      There will always be at least one comment like this here. Nothing new. LOL

      By the way, erm, have you seen some of the atrocious things that some of your compatriots release every season as fashion. Click on the STYLE section.

      Have a good week!

    Wow!! So much hate, so much vitriol! Btw Ghanaians can have a show to appreciate the evolution of our fashion and to enjoy ourselves, not everything is about the white man’s / foreign validation okay.We can validate our own selves. Thank you
