    Omotola and Chimamanda are my favs anytime, anywhere. Ofcourse, I’m not forgetting other amazing women mentioned as well. Y’all are doing Nigeria and Africa proud and giving the younger generation the much-needed hope to continue to strive and work at becoming success stories irrespective of the hurdles and the many challenges that comes their way… Keep shining, ladies. Keep inspiring our heart to be better. We love you…

    Dammit, Omotola everything look good, including a bloody skater dress. I try this thing on and it looks as plain as cooked unseasoned turkey.

    So we are celebrating women in Africa and a white woman is on the front page- what a big joke- whites make up 0.01% of the African population and they are descendants of land thieves and murderers – why is she the representation of the African woman- why?
