    Hi Babs,
    I saw your interview on DSTV ”53 Extra” with Dolapo Oni and I must say that I am very happy for you my brother. I learnt that you do have something here in Accra Ghana, is it like an office? I live in Accra Ghana now and I was wondering if I could work for you guys. My name is Omoefe Okinedo a.k.a. Jeffrey. I’m an ex-akokiate University of Lagos.
