SD: But that’s not a job!
Tobs: (Frowns) It is Mummy, it is...!
SD: So what do you think about Nigeria?
Tobs: I hate Naigiaa(Nigeria)..but I like it a little bit...
SD: Why do you hate Nigeria? 
Tobs: I dont like Naigiaa because, there are no Toy’R”Us, the cars are not shiny, they don’t look nice..everywhere is not nice..everywhere is not shiny...
SD: What do you mean everywhere is not nice?
Tobs: It looks nice a little bit but they need to decorate it..
