Suregirl | 5/11/2012 9:38:49 AM |
Keke Napep will you shut up & allow my frank Someone to express himself? By the way, who the bloody hell are you to counter what he says? Oh, I guess you are the goon from our antagonist camp? And apparently you haven't realized that it's a FREE world hence there's freedom of expression? My dear imbecile enemy, if you don't like my sweet friend (Someone somewhere) opinion kindly get your lifeless body outta here. Bloody nitwit!
Someone somewhere | 5/11/2012 10:17:46 AM |
Suregirl dont mind this f*****h keke napep ediot. He or she is only seeking notice
Keku | 5/11/2012 11:28:51 AM |
What do you men by "my sweet friend,someone somewhere"? That sounds very very gay,but again i will not be surprised!!
keke | 5/11/2012 11:48:08 AM |
I have always been with u guys until that uselessas f**l someone nowhere started insulting me for saying my mind abt Kanu. I was really shock at his response to me. Besides i never said anything bad to warrant such insult from him. If kanu helped yekini, why then did they said he died poor and neglected?
keke | 5/11/2012 12:52:36 PM |
Why are u pple so quick to insulting pple. I dnt get it.to me that does not mske pple listen to u or respect u. It only brings one down.
Suregirl | 5/11/2012 3:36:20 PM |
So Someone insulted you & you wanna pay him back in his own coin? You should have over-looked the insult or simply correct him in a subtle manner instead of keeping grudges. So is that the only reason why you keep attacking him at the slightest opportunity? And does that speak well of you? NO! So next time apply maturity. Also you referred to us as being gay. Why? Am a SHE & Someone is a HE so how does that translate to gayism? Please correct yourself on that too. *peace out*
keke | 5/12/2012 12:17:24 AM |
I am nt keku. I never called u pple gay k.
Someone somewhere | 5/12/2012 1:12:55 AM |
My dear dont mind him he was insulting kanu nwankwo over nothing,so i told him off
Charisma | 5/11/2012 6:09:01 AM |

Award for pako, don't blame them, rather blame the carpenter that takes his time to carve these plywood slate they give to them here and there.
I talked about this thing a long time ago, before you say "Jack Robinson" they have called them in one corner to come and collect the self arranged plywood, to be handed to them by their own friends.

You are too hilarious l must confess. Your comment is down too funny.Anyway, there might be some atom of truth in your write-up.

Pls stop calling people ugly.Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.She is pretty in her own way.Remember all is not about looks.It is how you feel about yourself.Congrats Funke.If you read the articles,most haters are women because it is in their nature to hate other women.Pls stop all this bashing of your own gender.

Great e28093 I should dfnieitely pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and related information ended up being truly easy to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, site theme . a tones way for your customer to communicate. Excellent task. Reply this thread
