Not again, he was not going to allow this woman come between he and his friends. Never again! “Guys, I swear on my life, as in, the Igbo don comot for my eye, I have no idea what this is about.” He held his phone up to the sky for the heavens to bear him witness.

Obi sat at the passenger side of the 2018 Mercedes E300 and made small talk with the driver while they waited for Stella Jide-Coker to finish the last of her hobnobbing with an elderly chief and join them in the car.
