    Many congrats Basketmouth. I knew he would make it from his days doing skits at Lagbaja’s shows many years ago.

    A well turned out event and if we are to believe the news going around, the next Governor of Lagos showed up.

    HMO has filled out facially.
    Femi. A has filled out everywhere. 🙂
