1988 - When bleaching creams were banned in Nigeria...:-)

Apparently, in February 1988, the Nigerian military government banned all bleaching creams and soaps. Lucky for some Nigerians, democracy arose to save their bleaching rights. Lol.

We're in the era of y2k compliance which has made some young girls and boys believe that only fair people are beautiful,they will go all out to bleach their skin even if they are still fair.

Dear Linda Ikeji, how are you and your family member, I hope they are fine if so glory be to God in heaven (amen).
I am writing this letter to you to complain about some stuffs on this blog that's getting me and angry and also vast majority of other readers too.
I know poverty is a disease, but am pretty sure that one can't be rich with 100k. Ever since the last time you gaveaway more than 1million in december 2014 and most especially gave 5 most commentor 100k, this useless, nonentity, nicompoo, scallywag and jobless young man called Royal Priesthood have been flooding this blog with a lot of useless comment. Even abokodawarri comment make more sense than his own, I'll like you to do something about this royal priesthood before he drives all of us out of this BLOG. Bonario, Bishop Dammy, ONYx, are not popular on this blog because they are flooding this blog with comment but they comment sensibly. I will like you Linda to block Royal Priesthood from this blog, we are really getting irritated by his comment. God bless you as you do so.
Thanks
A CONCERNED LIB READER.
