  • Patience from Lithonia, GaIt is nice that Bowwow had find somebody. I think that they are going to be happy together. I heard a rumour that ciara was born both a man and a women that is not nice. Ciara I am your biggest fan . Bowwow should tell you. Bowwow and I met in a airport he was Nassau and I was going to my secret place in the world. Maybe we see what will be next about Bowwow and Ciara it has meaning. They are made for each other and no other fan can do about that they love each other alot. None of this should of happen if he didn't have had his birthday in Mexico................................................................................................................THAT'S ALL FOLKS!!!!!!!!

    My name is Tiffany I just wanted you to know that I think you are a very good singer and that your very cute for being 18. Happy Late birthday. Mine was in April on the 15th. Well I love your new song Let me hold you. Me and my Girlfriend are planing on getting married and Im thinking of having that song played. I have always wanted to meet you but i know with you being a famous singer and all that it might not ever happen so i dont get my hopes up. Well this is all i had to say and i hope this gets to you or you read this sometime soon.

    Always yours
    Tiffany
