“Earlier this year, I wished Bobrisky a happy birthday with his picture posted on my Instagram page,” he explained. Then my page literally blew up and caught fire.
“By the time I returned, I had received thousands of messages on the post, and my DM was inundated with messages.” Someone actually DM’d me and said I’m sleeping with Bobrisky. Simply because I wished him a happy birthday on my Facebook page.
“Someone even called and asked me to remove the post. Some even told me about how God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Are you the Almighty? Was it God’s will for you to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah?
“Stop passing judgment on people; you are not God.” Bobrisky, like everyone else, is a human being. Why do we discriminate against individuals? All of this should be stopped. God said to love your neighbor as you love yourself. Nigerians take a break.”
