    Aunty, first you were not the only nigerian on that list. Why advertise it? And also if my memory serves right i am yet to see the free school, hospital or any tangible project you did. We are done being fools. Please send proof.
    Btw. I am not hating but just asking for proof.

    What a funny list… Seyi Tinubu, Stella Damasus, Bella (Adenuga) Disu.
    Omotola, I don’t see what is worth bragging about re: being on this list. Just take a seat abeg.

    Another pointless endeavour by the UN. Since the organisation lost their relationship with the US they’ve become like, well, a Miss World pageant. Completely without merit.
