"Osaretin Michael - Convince me that you are 21 years old in the 2021 picture. Sure you are not 10 years old? What's going on in the world that a 21 year old man looks like a 5 year old? You have both congratulations and a problem to deal with because, most Naija people will see you as a child and may not want to take instructions/directives from you."
