@Fabyorubachick: She’s right but I watched you for 70 days and you are in no way a Feminist.. do not act like one now.
@Noggra: Who typed this for her? I come in peace
@Sheilablinky: Should I call this guilty conscience or what
@Omowunmiokunade: I swear she’s saying the truth, women keeps bringing down each other too and making things worse, no support, always competing
@Ozonebelievers: Nengi is equally educated and shouldn’t be limited to just beauty and curves ! If people start judging uncle Charlie by his looks how he go feel?
An orphan trained herself through school yet grandpas don’t rate it just because she went for bbn to better her life! If we want the country to be great our minds and reasoning needs to be great too
