Someone just sent me this video of American bluegrass band, Henhouse Prowlers performing P-Square’s ‘Chop My Money’ in Abuja and I just think it’s awesome – the energy of the people in the room especially, their appreciation, just made me break out in goose pimples.

I am not sure why Hubs sent me this video but apparently according to him it is ‘not about Flavour. Just watch it’. So I did.
I am still not sure what to think.
