‘Fake it’ Contest

Thanks to our audience! In February, we launched a ‘Fake it’ competition, that worth N100,000 to urge our audience to spend less time faking a fabulous life on social platforms and more time living that life in earnest and travelling the world. Our lucky winner was Abdul Hafeez Ahmed that faked a picture of himself in Dubai.
