Ten most influential Nigerians for March 2016

The drama of March 2016 is like no other. Though the drama didn't start early in the month, it got very interesting later in the month. Whereas, some people were busy rocking the red carpets, others were 'sniffing cocaine' in the studio while causing emotional blackmail. Dubai saw some others and thank God for media stunts. I really hope to hear your opinion about the list, at least that's why there's a comment box. You won't believe who hit the number one spot.

Ten Nigerian women that should be emulated
