Sulaiman is among some of the members who have already signed up Lockers, where they are able to post blogs, videos, photos and updates for their friends, fans and followers to see. “The WBC Family proudly embraces our friends at LockerBlogger,” Sulaiman said. “LockerBlogger– we’re in your corner!”
