Speaking with BBC News Pidgin, the young lady said she doesn’t think less of herself and that men are the ones coming after her due to what she has been able to achieve.

In her words: ” I thought my legs would stop me from achieving my dreams and that men would stop asking me out, but the reverse is the case.”

Doris said she loves dancing and posting the videos on social media not because she has plenty of money, but because being happy prevents her from being depressed.
