What’s not to love about Flavour’s abs? From Nwa Baby to Ikwokrikwo, he’s definitely one of Nigeria’s sexiest brodas. He’s also a smart business mind and that can be seen by his choice of releases recently. Victoria Kimani and Flavour collaboration on his song Ada Ada on Coke Studio Africa season 2 is still one the most talked about collabos and most watched Youtube videos in Africa. See if who he is paired with this season causes such a stir. Ladies across Africa can’t really decide who they would rather see Flavour paired with. Will it be the sweet Chidinma? Maybe.
