“But what is wrong with you, is social media your family mediator, be giving the public tea that’s not ours to drink.”
“Religious people are gullible sha. His church followers will accept him because he wrote this forgetting that he got caught this time that’s why he apologised. Stop believing you can be perfect. All this things are part of being human. You don’t have to be a gospel preacher before you know cheating is wrong. You no go apologise if you no be gospel preacher ooo.”
