Nollywood actor turned politician, Desmond Elliot, added another year on Thursday, and as expected it was a torrent of birthday wishes from fans, friends and well wishers. While some of the birthday messages were as routine as what you would expect from an average admirer, some had with them messages so meaningful they could not be ignored.
