I am sorry for the delay. I was to make this announcement yesterday but my Friday was busy and I needed a day like ‘Saturday’ to carefully weed out the ‘almighty spammers’. As much as I want everyone to win something, it’s unfortunate that it’s not going to happen. However, I owe us all a free and fair contest.
If I go by disqualifying every entry with any form of spam comment, we will not have our 5winners tonight, but because I do not want to sound like ‘Etisalat’ or succumb to the spirit of recession, I pulled down all spam comments. However, the post (‘Memories we Shared’) with the highest number of deleted deliberate spam comments (about 100) has been disqualified. That was just too much and inhumane.
See winners below:
1st – ‘Falling Grace’ by Adejumoke Balogun
2nd – ‘Hyacinths and Memories’ by Victor Daniel
3rd – ‘This was love i suppose…till it was too late’ by Alofe Oluwakemi
4th – ’14 Reasons, 14 Days’ by Iteoluwakishi
5th – ‘My Distant Lover’ by Rukayat Yaro
