I need a tall boyfriend
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a beautiful Ghanaian lady caused a massive shake on social media after making a profound statement in a street interview with a gentleman known on different platforms by the handle @gabthesharkboy.
With a raised eyebrow, @gabthesharkboy asked:
"Is it the height you care about? What if he is tall but does not have money? How will you handle such a situation."
Without mincing words, the lady quickly responded that she already has enough money to take care of her needs and that of the man so it would not matter.
