    yeah cause it was pilot school that paid for her designer bags. Even EA that I thought was the best got exposed and she had to delete her one post one designer pics from Insta. You gotta admit, they mostly run, but you have to give it to Powede for going to school and keeping her business lowkey. Go girl!

      And so what? For your mind, you’ve spilled gist, abi? Ehn, thank you! Go back to your master Naijagistlive, let him give you a nice juicy bone and pat you on the head. After that, don’t forget to wag your tail appreciatively.
      Congratulate the girl and move on, you had to write a literary review. Awon gist “knowers.”

      yeah they run but some are able to stop running and possibly put it behind them for good.
      Like the one I’m most proud of. Instead of bags and shoes, babes went to do postgrad from one of the best and most expensive unis in blighty.

      She doesn’t have to prove anything to anybody. It is her life.
      Your life will continue regardless of what Anna is doing or not doing.
      Just let the girl be!

    Never heard of her before but she’s pretty . Do female pilots get married ? Would guys want to settle down with them? I’m just curious .

      I just had to respond….what kind of question is this??? Of course! If she finds the right man or if the right man finds her, I don’t see why not. This young lady is obviously an ambitious one so she gonna need a whole lotta man to keep her interest.

      Look up 16 Kimberley Anyadike . She learned to fly at the age of 12 and she is the cutest thing in the world! She also flew cross country in the US abs was the youngest girl to do so. I was watching an interview she was giving on cnn and my 13 yo cousin was like “I’m sooo in love!” Haha.

      Do female pilots get married!?!
      No, felamle pilots stay single forever! All of them!
      Besides, all men are the same, so if one doesn’t want her, of course no other man would want her.

    Nana, what sort of questions are you asking. So now a hard working lady has achieved a feat and needs a man to complete her hun? What a myopic thinking . We’re back to this topic again, get your thinking hypo’ed’ and know that if marriage is in the book for her, the right man will locate her
