Zenab, pretty Ivorian lady who supports Kunle arrives Lagos for him
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a pretty Ivorian lady who has been supporting the London to Lagos biker had arrived in Nigeria for him.
Kunle had earlier confirmed to Legit.ng that Zenab would arrive via a flight to receive him and she did just that, as seen in a video she shared on her Twitter handle.
Kunle met Zenab in Cote D'Ivoire in the course of his bike trip and she blew him away with a charity support of $1, 000 (N415k) which sent social media into a frenzy after he announced it on Twitter.
