You have shared my posts and commented on many of my posts. Some of you just read without contributing but you read everything. You have become a part of me as I am a part of you. I want to thank you all for making me a better person, all of you. Some have even gotten mad and unfriended me, or even blocked me. I understand.

Abiyamọ will sooner than later eclipse Linda Ikeji’s Blog as numero uno in Nigeria cum Africa, Na Nostra II, yours truly talk am.
Zents Kunle Sowunmi has been my big Egbon and The ORACLE. I am sure u were dazed how Nostra II and The Oracle Zents Kunle Sowunmi accurately prediced triumphant Trump victory long before elections. Bunmi Awoyemi Divinewealth Olugbenga Olayiwole Adenike Adewunmi-Adebisi Usman Chindo Raphymoj Olaitan Omo-AjuwaraUsman BabaOlasunkanmi Angela Chioma Adeyemi Love Micheal Amina Miango Chohwe and Bucky Hassan have been fantastic and balanced presentations and posts. Attah Essien too have been fantastic. Yemi Odunaike has been great even though we always disagreed about Buhari. George Onmonya Daniel and Bernard Ezenagu Anyiam too have been great. George Onmonya Daniel’s controversial articles and posts added much flavour.
It would be a great oversight to forget to mention Rebecca A Elma Ayekooto Akindele Akindele Onaolapo Richard Bamidele Ajakaye Agatha Benson Godwin Obue Shehu Zailani Cham Faliya Sharonand Rose P. Graham. These were really great folks. Not forgetting the gifted touch of Fiyin Osunbiyi Eazy, Jack Obinyan-Buhari has been great even if i judge it to be one sided at times.
Richard Akinnola II and Prof Pius Adesanmi have been over fantastic. Always A or A+ in their presentations and posts. Always insightful,
Tunde Esemikose II Tunde Akogun Gabriel Moses-Oduntan Charles Kehinde Alasholuyi Tunde Salam have been great. The fatherly advice of Jonathan Ọláoyè has been great,

I hope he one day writes about Mavrodi Mundial Moneybox, the popular ponzi scheme also originally called Mavrodi Melnikova Mavrodi after the surnames of the 3 original founders. I have rechristened it Money Making Machine.
