The pilot handled the situation, and the reality star recommended him for a promotion.
"Dear @danaair your today flight 9j355 to Abuja was a roller coaster. We all held on to our faith as we met a heavy storm at Abuja. We got to Abuja, and we were on air for 2hours. Waiting for the storm to either clear or we return to Lagos . Thanks to Pilot Lawal Rasheed that God through his wisdom use to save us. He deserves an awarding promotion for his remarkable expertise. From your passenger, thank you #deletingsoon"
