“I want to; specially thank Pastor Adeboye, governors, Senators, traditional rulers, fellow musicians, great men of God too numerous to mention, and other well-meaning Nigerians. I pray that God will grant peace to all; grieving parents and victims of alcoholism and; drug addiction all over the world.



Meanwhile, Actress and singer, Angela Okorie, has said she prefers to keep her relationship private because she doesn’t want the unsolicited opinions of third parties.



She said; “Many entertainers, including me, don’t want their relationships out there. I am a very private person and I believe that once the relationship is on social media, it will break.



“That is why many entertainers have ‘social media in-laws’ who tell them what to do in their relationships or marriages.

“I advise people to only go into relationships with people they are comfortable with. It is better to study the person very well (before making a commitment).”
