If that was a prank then that's a disgrace, not this time that allegations are flying around. A wrong prank at a wrong time.

These presenters need a whooping from their producer.
THAT CALLER JUST HANDED THEM THE SHOW!
How could you miss an opportunity to turn to Reekado and ask "So what happened"?
How could you waste content like that? https://t.co/A3W5RcFsdv

So Reekado Banks is trending because of that phone call? How silly can we be in this country.
I mean even as a girl, I sleep with you for the first time, don’t expect nothing. The choice to go further with you as friends or not is my business. Same goes to guys. No hard feelings
