@adxjnr: Point of Correction Sabi girl, KSA is not your “Uncle” He is old enough to be addressed as a “Daddy” Good gesture you apologized btw, Kudos ❤️.
@itzbasito: As if standing to greet King Sunny Ade wasn’t enough, you still calling him Uncle in your apology tweet, a fvcking 77 year old legend old enough to be anybody’s grandpa.
@mister_ade5: I just knew that you didn’t see him properly and I’m glad you came to clear the air 🥺 Stay safe and love you baby 🏽❤️.
