Okay, I won't stall any longer, if you've heard of The Strangers' Tour then you know who I'm talking about. Yes, the super talented brothers were non-other than Boona Mohammed (whom I blogged about here), the famous Youtuber; Baba Ali, and the very well-spoken Sh. Navaid Aziz.

Oh well, at least I got to go. Aye?!
