Ogo Chukwu said:
“If she is truly your friend and you are a good person, you wouldn’t have brought it here to drop your review. What happened to calling her and telling her what and how to go about it?”
Sisi Wonu said:
“She wanted ur honest review that is why she gave you to taste. It’s left for you to put it a proper way. Like praise her firstly then say the error kindly, i think you need to reduce the sugar not everybody likes sugar, i think it needs more whisking. Help her google search some better ways if u have ideas too, and table it to her, afterwards let her also know how great she will sell when she gets jt right.”
