"You have been causing your wife pain you need this advice more."


"Yul, death shatters and humbles everyone. As painful as it is, it jas a way of unifying people and making them look past offenses. That you could ignore Junior Pope and never ever mentioned him until after his funeral speaks a lot about how much of an ev.il person that you are. I didn't know him before he died because I don't watch Nollywood movies but the circumstances of his death left everyone very sad including me. That you could say all this about a man who is now defenceless shows the mean person that you are. An unrepentant narc.issist!


"In essence you are building audience and influence as an influencer or a blogger???"


"This man, do you read what you type? You knew MAY and your children were hurting yet you were mocking her every single day with your juju skits partner. All in the name of this same monetization you are talking about. Practice what you preach. You die blood dey inside your body abi."

"Go and sit down anu ohia."


"You have no right whatsoever to speak about his family because if you really wished them well, you won't speak ill of their late brother, husband, son and father. You preach about love but your actions show that you have nothing close to love for your own wife, brother, and kids. You an excuse of a man and you owe your parents and grown children a serious apology for the kind of person you turned out to be."
