Daniel IghakpeHi there, Akon! Nice one with Sam Feldz. By the way, here are two links to my favorite mobile phone, which, at the moment, am unable to afford, but'll really like to have one (NOKIA 3 DUAL-SIM, MATTE BLACK colour): www.nokia.com/en_ng/phones/nokia-3www.slot.ng/mobile-phones/nokia/nokia-3As one of your big fans in Nigeria, could you gift me one?... LoLzzz! I'd be soooo glad. Am in Nigeria, by the way. If you could be so kind to gift me one, I can inbox you my address so you order one for me online (www.slot.ng), addressed to me. LoL!
