” Yhooo and she went on and on.. We were all confused. At first I thought it was a praise singer.. then I heard in her sayings that she was a Prophet. Hayi my son had enough.. he was going to stop her. Bishop jokes about this saying .. At some point I thought heyi what if Vuyo wakes up? What do I do? I need a plan” she wrote.
