"Lols.. Sense of dressing actually shows how good you are in a way. We’re tired of being embarrassed in a world stage by mediocrity. Let’s have well dressed pres or vp to project our image better out there. Not suit n runners."
"Why are you crying more than the bereaved? Neither Tinubu nor Shettima has come out to complain but here you are taking panadol for another person's headache. Search yourself and face what is facing you."
"Why don't you wear pants with shoe when go for Movie premieres or awards. Sometimes it's better to keep quiet."
"My problem with this boy is he always think he is Pete Edochie, my friend you are yul. Don’t come here to preach morals to anyone cos u don’t have one."
