    Ghana – not striking. Nigeria – it is too much…your outfit had me looking away from your face and charm. Kenya – huge potential. Me likey mucho. South Africa – that ya crooked smile is charming and naughty. Ya look kissable. In fact, SA looks like one intern that works for me but the intern get ice blue eyes. If no be say person don marry, get self respect come dey fear God well well.
