“I recently cut some people out of my life. I can’t afford to keep letting tears mess up my pretty make-up (chuckles). I’m just kidding. But yea, don’t mind me. I can be a cry baby sometimes. On a serious note, I’m done with all that drama. They’re not worth it biko!”

Lexicon Analysis:  “Biko!” translates to “Please!” It is translated from Igbo- a major African language spoken by over 32 million people with celebrated artwork dating to over 2500 BC

It is important to note that some of the stories on these series have been translated from different local languages to English. And while the contents are totally original to the individual(s) pictured; some of the wordings and sentence constructions may have been modified for easier comprehension and consumption.
