She went on to advise ladies not to get on the asoebi trend especially if they can turn it down.
In her words:
"It’s not every Asoebi or invitation you should jump and accept. Learn to say NO. If the event is one you must attend, abeg turn up and groove. No be everything we go press calculator on top. But wear what you have. You must not accept asoebi or go shopping for new attire."
