Nigeria, are you guys for real? Are you people serious? Stop being petty, It’s just art abeg get over it. Msteeeeww all of a sudden everyone is patriotic, meanwhile two minutes ago you were insulting and whining about the country and how you want to go to “the abroad” 🤣🤣🤣🤣

kvnsmcc: That’s an artistic paper, why are you all getting mad?
elrapheeeq: Even if they have it and can do it, nobody online here has verified if it’s real or fake, but we should give them benefit of the doubt and be positive about it. People are so pessimistic that they won’t even look at the positives.
