  1. Interesting. This one wey opportunities just dey pop up all out of the woodwork…

    Thank God.

    ‘First prize a Nokia phone’. Hmmm.

    Could it be any more vague than that?

    Let’s go.

    1. It could Nokia 1100.

  2. Nice,just nice.

  3. This is great!

  4. Are we joking here?
    What kind of first price is that one? For a whole magazine…

    I’m not writing anything!

    1. At least, they’re not charging you to enter, @babyada

    2. abi ooo…i hv 2 nokia phones already jo bt maybe 4 d exposure

  5. Na Wao!
    Not even a BB?
    @babyada, i agree. I no dey write.

  6. This is the second competition where I actually prefer the second prize to the first. Dem for talk which kain phone dem one give

  7. The Return of the 3310… Hehehe… Good luck to any entrant.

  8. Abi o, Goosy, we only have to hope, ‘cos children of nowadays…hehehe


  9. I’d say it’s not about the price but the exposure and the test/improvement of one’s skills. The price isn’t too bad though, what harm could it do? A slice of bread is better than none. They even ‘gree’ give prize, ‘una dey’ talk, he-he-he.

    1. “Price” as I wrote above, should have read as “prize”. Do excuse me.
