According to Yetty, she was not at the event but she thought the gesture was a very thoughtful one.
"It’s a very thoughtful thing to do, I liked the idea of it, but I did not go".
Not stopping there, Yetty added that she likes the singer more than she likes his music. She said she knew he was not going to be at the concert and decided to go since she would not be seeing him.
In her words:
"I like him more than I like his music to be honest, I mean I like the two o but I like him more and he wasn’t going to be there so my own stanship no reach there. If I’m not seeing him, I’m not going.
But it’s a very thoughtful thing and I know he would have been very happy with what they did."
