    Well done ladies. I’M just always concerned when Nigerians go to the diaspora to host a global event and all we see are Nigerians. Throw in 2 people from Ghana and 1 from Kenya and we can say Africans.

      Hey Sheke we had people from Algeria, Zimbabwe, DRC, Ghana, Ethiopia, Egypt and more. There were even some Jamaicans in the house so it was definitely a pan-African event.
