A dead person, according to the rapper, can only rest in peace if they performed good deeds before their death. He expressed himself as follows:
“I had a court case at a time, I lost everything I had (and I hate asking for help from anyone… even my own parents).
My Dad walked into the court room on the day set for the hearing and my lawyer in that case lost his shit.
“That’s the man I was telling you about all these years” he said to his partner next to him. His friend was killed in a failed brake accident in ibadan (I think) and when they got there, they were going to shake the driver with all their might and connections but my dad welcomed them in his office and asked if he could read them some Bible passages before they commenced discussions.
They left the office letting go. He didn’t see my dad anymore till the day i had a court case where he represented me in and my dad walked in. I learnt about resting in peace from the life my dad lived. To say “ rest in peace “ is a lie if the person who died didn’t leave good memories of him/herself. If you wonder where my Confidence comes from, it is in knowing the son of whom I am. you have seen me smile many days, see me cry… Today is different. Teslim.”
