"Some said this on the second slide, had to check erm. I don’t know why Nigerians don’t appreciate good art until they see an international celebrity wearing it, then it’s wow wow wow it’s nice. I’m A Trendsetter, I say this all the time. I remember the first time I did something similar for @sholzy23 in 2019 for his reunion outfit, They didn’t let me rest. They trolled all the way on Twitter, Same has for @femiadebayosalami for king of thieves."
