  1. And where are those arrogant actors and actresses who flaunt expensive jewelries, clothes, bags, cars, houses & lifestyle like crazy? They can’t even help or pray for their colleagues. Na wao! Its really sad. May God help Tunde in Jesus name. Amen

    • Yes ooo only God knows d source of dia money dey dnt help each other at all only to show dia expensive bag. Shoe, weave on, car and house. Dat how elder Maya died recently no help, now Leo mezie is sick two kidneys has failed need help no response frm any and wen dem die u will see all of dem at stadium doin candle night pretending even pouring out crocodile tears yeye full dia yansh

    • Well spoken my dear. It’s so terrible. I wonder if they ever read the scriptures to know that all is vanity upon vanity. I really felt for Elder Maya. May his soul rest in peace. Leo is going through extreme hardship and pains & all i see is a heartless group of fake colleagues. God will judge them

  2. His a great and an old actor. Take him to Synagogue Church of all Nation. The arena of Liberty. Jesus heals and forgive. My question is, where are the children? I have my reasons for asking this question. Everybody has morning, afternoon and evening. Some people, especially Men. When they are in money, they will not take good care of their children and their family. Instead of caring for their children they lavishly spend their money for beer and sot of selfish enjoyment. Responsible person must have a responsible family. In the other hands. Let them take him for prayers and deliverance. No sickness God can’t heal. Jesus is the greatest physician and his the healer.
