My Take

Kila Nyani na starehe zake, The Only gap I find attractive in teeth is the diastema. What my people call isang'ari and our neighbors to the south call it Rambanya. I always freeze when I see a beautiful nya-Rambanya. Our majority Bantu kin call it thenya i believe


And I prefer accessories to physical modification


Sand sana wadau.
