And we reach like 20 tenant for di house, with only one kitchen, one bafroom and one toilet. Na only me be di tenant wey dey use room and parlour. Di rest na one room, even with dia plenty pikin.
But since dis Coro siddon-for-house show face last month end, Baba Braimoh no know wetin e go do. Who dash am mouth to take ask anybody for house rent?
Na im make I no wan go meet am dat yesterday morning, but na my wife Bose say make I jus go hear wetin di man wan talk.
