  • Wow! Bolanle the Lord is your strength. You're a super woman.
    And why is Banke not there?

  • Banke has issues, she wants to be the ever reigning MUA. Let's not start on her bad behaviour

  • Banke is just lucky Tara is no longer keen on doing bridal makeover. She's so stuck up she doesn't train her girls well, any of her girls who does better upgraded personally. Vanity upon vanity!
