The 26-years-old boy, Joseph David, dazzled and impressed the crowd so much that the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, came on stage and promised to take him off the street as well as gave him a cash reward of N2.5 million which has been redeemed.

Days after the Marathon, the young boy was invited to the state house, Alausa-Ikeja where Ambode and his wife presented him with a one year free education scholarship while Dbanj, alongside the CEO of DKM media, Damian Ifeanyi Okoroafor offered him a deal with CREAM Platform to nurture, develop his talent in music, education and entertainment.

Why I dislike big boobs, butts – TundeTdot

Tunde Akinsanmi, a.k.a TundeTdot, ex-member of popular music group, Style Plus, has confessed that he fancies ladies with medium-sized boobs and butts than those with big ones. This, he said, has been his taste long before he met and married his pretty wife, Joke Akinsanmi, in 2010.

In a chat, the singer said unlike most men, though he enjoys the supple nature of boobs and butts, seeing too much of them in a woman turns him off.

“In terms of her physical features, well-rounded front and backsides appeal to me but they must be moderate in size. Heavy backsides turn me off.”

However, the RnB music singer, who recently dropped his debut single titled ‘African Lady’, under PEC Records, maintained that truthful, adventurous, mature and loyal women appeal best to him.

“My ideal woman is one that I can trust to tell me the truth even when it hurts; someone who is kind to others and can hold a conversation with anybody. She must be mature, rational, adventurous, and loyal.”

On his latest single, he said he wrote and recorded ‘African Lady’ to celebrate the beauty of African women and their capacity to inspire the men in their lives to greater heights.
