In her case, she said that the Veteran actor had no social impact on her life while growing up unlike the American rapper, DMX.
Here’s what she wrote;
“Just because people posted about DMX doesn’t mean it’s fake love. Even a lot of people here saying don’t mind them celebrities etc, DMX was part of their childhood. I am not happy we lost a legend but the truth is he didn’t impact me the same way as DMX did and that not my fault.
We were born to consume more of the west than the motherland. Instead of pointing fingers let’s raise motherland together 🙌. We all would die one day and trust me not everyone would feel the same way when I am gone too. Some will just discover me. A lot may mourn me but not all definitely loved me dunno 🤷🏽♀️. RIP LEGEND “
