Fans reactions

Some of her fans have started dropping encouraging comments on the post and giving advice on how to handle the havoc of generator fumes. captured some of these comments, read below:


"Every landlord should build a generator house away from the house. That's how it's done these days."

"Never been a fan of going to sleep with the generator on, no matter how far from the room it is. Anything after 11pm, it honestly just becomes annoying and inconsiderate to the environment/neighbors."


"I had a similar experience. Someone found me on the floor already passed out. It took me two weeks to recover properly. Please your generators should be placed far away from you."


"That happened because u both had inhaled high amounts of Carbon (II) Oxide, a gas formed form the incomplete combustion of carbon. It weakens the respiratory tract as this gas has deprived blood cells of oxygen, and there is an insufficient supply of Oxygen to the brain…hence ur weakness …. Dunno if I also experienced shortness of breath…This story here is related to what is happening in my state, River state…. people are steadily inhaling soot and one fears what wld happen in 10-15 years, lung cancers et all. Thank God u survived. A very thin line between life a death…. Very very thin."
