Highly impressed…arm-eye coordination is surreal for her age. SD, good move will be to get her into an academy with full scholarship. God bless! – @OlufemiAwoyemi
This is the Kind of minister i want, not a retired vigilante with a red beret.
Keep doing the good work Sir, there are talents out there that financial difficulties have killed. – @E1lCapitan
Decent hand speed, footwork and stance can be better as well as her head movement. Looks like someone that will do great if she gets proper nutrition, better training for her stamina and technique, better training gears. Well done sir. – @UnclebeeOla
She is a raw gold that needs right environment, sponsor, education to succeed ,Take her now before its too late. – @Fingerz00
Sir, I think Shekina should be monitored closely by her teachers in her school to keep her off from any unforseen avoidable brutality against her colleagues. You know kids can fight in school…lol – @Gaddafi_28
