    Yeah, those are her Generations role models (Nigerian Musicians). that lost cause generation of ages (16 to 32). They see these Nigerian artists as role models and abandoned the Likes of Einstein, Newton, Tesler, Thomas Edison. Anyway such cases are below my mental panoramic view. Hope he goes to jail if guilty and freed if innocent. Like Charley Boy said, 89% of Nigerian girls between 16 to 32 today are prostitutes. I agree with him. It was 90% but 1% got married between this time last year and today.
