It’s time for him to be taken care of. Thank you all for reaching out and sending warm messages. It takes courage to be vulnerable, and even more to ask for help.

For those who have asked me publicly and privately if this is a publicity stunt, I pray you never have to go through such and hope you know there are easier and emotionally cheaper ways to seek publicity. Gods keep.

''It’s Ok “not to be Ok sometimes my Brother” and there’s no shame to it! I’ve been there! The Saddest part is that our society shy’s away from the truth and being human, we are covered up by a culture that is so far lost...... We emulate the western world at our convenience but shy away from the reality of consciousness..... you did the right thing, crying out at the right time, unlike myself! The western world that we emulate has lost so many lives due to ignorance. Your mind is the greatest weapon to attack the delusional world that we live in bro! When you understand the dynamics of life, define your values and understand your purpose in life, the rest is a daily exercise.... Gratitude is my recommendation. If we can all exercise empathy and love to one another, The world will be a better place to contain all of us in peace..... don’t get carried away from reality and the social media world folks!!! #Blessings❤️ #Selense #tekero #IamHuman #MeSelfiBeHumanBeing''

How do you feel about winning an award at the just concluded Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards?
I can’t capture the way I feel about winning the AMVCA award in one word. I feel like I have stayed away for so long and the project that I took was worth coming back for. It was a labour of love and it was really hard to do that project. Right now, it just feels great that I did the right thing and hopefully, I would find projects that would challenge me and would even be better than that.

Alade Aromire was the first person that cast me as an herbalist in a movie and since then, people have started using me for the role of an herbalist. I have complained about it; in fact, last year, I had to hold a meeting with some stakeholders in our industry to let them know that they should use me for other movie roles instead of only using me for the role of an herbalist.
