Exactly a year today this happened, a year ago i would have met my maker. My story would have ended on tragic note but God had other plans for me. I don’t know what i did right because i am not different or more special than those who have lost their lives through accidents but He choose to favour me that day and i will forever be grateful. In the days after the accident i was flooded with soo much love and gifts from close friends, colleagues in the art industry, my group members, media especially the bloggers, from my followers on social media, my family and most especially my wife who showed her unwavering support as usual. In that moment i knew i was loved because you all made me feel special and i want to say THANK YOU AGAIN.
In all of this i realize that God saved me for a purpose. He wanted me to realize my full potential. My purpose has always been to entertain people through music and this i will continue to do. Oh and to those who thought it was a publicity stunt, i really wouldn’t even wish this on my enemies.
