And none of them was wearing a tattoo or flashing her boobs.
Why won't they be powerful,when they still got their Victoria's secret intact.

I dont really have a high opinion about forbes magazine ranking.It is like every other desperate attention seeking magazines to get patronage and advert.I see it as a plot to sell it papers.They should be telling us their criterion and source of their findings.*ano-believe-am-onebit*

An Iskeri from Akpoi the Yoruba Iskiri section of Ondo state with Yoruba names is not Yoruba, how can you know me more than i know myself.

Tara- Yoruba name

Fela- Yoruba name

In between, Iskeris are Yoruba.

Am not being bias over my comment, despite am from the Easter region. When it comes to business thou we are into it more but as for the structuring & packaging aspect of business I give it to the Westerners.
