Mark had bursted out. since then, Dr. Uche had tried his best to contact Nkiru but to no avail.
Mark on his own part did not understand why his friend was against his move.
Is Nkiru that important? She can find another man out there and to crown it all; He is now extremely rich.
He is labelled the new sensation of the moment.
He once attended a birthday party of his nollywood friend and the M.C had said since they have someone like him, no need calling on other guys because he worth more than 10 rich guys.
Had it been he did not make it, they would have replaced him with equally 10 rich guys to make the party lively.
He smiled when he recalled the incident.
If they think he will go back and stick to Nkiru just to fulfill his love promises to a girl who cannot even hold down a decent job, then they are in for a surprise.
