      Why are people carrying false rumors about a marriage that is blooming with happiness. Both LindaIkeji blog and Bellanaija (which are the most reliable blogs in Nigeria) haven’t reported that anything is Wrong with her marriage and yet most people have choosen to believe false rumors and write rubbish about her. Please leave the franklin’s alone and mind your businesses. Her marriage will never crash in Jesus Name. Amen

    i guess displaying boobs in public is now the new symbol is sexiness,but the annoying thing about it all is that these boobs being displayed hereare so unattractive,they mostly have lost their self esteem(boobs suffering frm very low self esteem) they mostly fall within the category of my grandma’s type,except few that were aided by pushup bras, unfornately these ladies are single, never breast fed any baby, am wondering why they are so flat, what did they do with them? free will donations?.

    Whoever that is responsible for dressing Lillian Afemari’s of late is doing well. Chai I still can’t believe the news about Lilian and Ubis marriage. May God forbid the evil of unpleasant news with most marriages of nowadays, amen!

    This Lilian and Ubis story is rather unbecoming, please marriage is not by force oo. The way this our generation is making us look in the eyes of older ones ehnn. You gladly take ur parents that have been married for years through the stress of all the marriage rites and then after one year wetin happen. Story say one thing one thing, who force u to marry. Biko u people should be careful o,what’s all these now. I am still hoping its not true sha. At least she still be Franklin. But please let’s think, this thing is rather becoming endemic. Maybe we need to pray well.
