“BREAKING SOMEONE’S MARRIAGE IS NOT GODLY, I INVITED YOU AS A FRIEND, TODAY UNASEMA AMBIA EKO DYDDA NOT TO BRING ME HOME BECAUSE LOVE YENU HAITA GROW. (BECAUSE YOUR LOVE WON’T GROW)”
”IT’S NOT A BATTLE, @EKODYDDA YOU DON’T HAVE TO HIDE IT ANYMORE YOUR ‘DOPE’ IS FREE TO LOVE YOU, SOMETIMES IT’S HEALTHY TO WALK AWAY. NA LEO NDIO ILE SIKU (TODAY IS THAT DAY), I WILL NOT HIDE IT FOR FAME OR MONEY, I WILL STAND WITH THE TRUTH AND WILL NEVER EVER LIE TO PEOPLE.”

“I HAVE TOLD YOU MANY TIMES THAT I DON’T RESPOND TO ANYTHING NEGATIVE.”
