      It was less awards glitz and more networking opportunity. How can they award the Acting Nigerian High Commissioner anything otherwise? Na wah!

    So happy when I saw Ibitola Ojoye-Adebayo won the author of the year award. Been following her massive progress . She is amazing??. Also BlackNbold magazine a big congrats ☺. And to madman who made the comment that ‘no shade but who the heck are these people?’ It shows what little you know and that you seriously need to broaden your horizon. You were basically throwing shade and you know it. If you dont know who they are then you find out.
