“It’s not by screaming about what’s wrong with the country when it’s convenient. It’s hard sometimes but you have to turn down that money. We already know who our enemies are. From now, you have to decide on whose side you are on. Are you for the people or are you for the old systems?
It’s that simple. Are you for the money? Are you for the generation that has failed us time and time again? And dealt wickedly with us during the protests?
Or are you about looking for alternatives and the new generation and using your platform and the gift of influence that you have to spread hope for a better future?
Answer these questions now and choose your side. But whatever you choose, stay consistent.”
