“You will never catch Rico frowning. I even begged him one time to stop smiling. He was always happy. Rico, you have unfinished business, you are yet to feature Drake remember?1 You were too goofy, you talked for hours, I complained, and now I want you to talk forever, I promise never to complain, you genuinely cared for me. Who would tell me wagwan or tickle me, who would prepare me the Italian meal you have wanted me to try!! See plans are all gone, I love you, I truly hope your soul is with God.”
