THE Jamaica Observer and Asafa Powell Twitter and Facebook pages have been blowing up with reader feedback since the superstar athlete made his debut as advice columnist in All Woman yesterday.

From all accounts, the athlete's take on the Top 10 worst Christmas gifts for men has been a popular sell, with followers of both handles giving Powell the props for keying them in on what gifts are acceptable and which ones are not this Yuletide season.

Below are a few of the comments taken from Twitter yesterday. Check out All Woman next Monday when Powell will have more advice for you.
