@Karigwe; It’s such a pity that this boy cried and begged for help while alive and got none. The same people celebrating him today are still those that cancelled him when he first spoke up against Marlians
@Its_ereko; The Father. The Girlfriend. Naira Marley. Zino. Sammy Larry. Naira Marley brother. Zino Girlfriend. everyone of them should be investigated. Including the guy shouting mohbad is dead in that video. DNA test should be done. IMOLE MUST GET JUSTICE 💡
