I remember when you send me a message on WhatsApp ur in 🇺🇸 we hard long conversations about a tribe called Judah. And you came back to 9ja held a meeting with the Judah Boies we all love the concept so much. But have lot of challenges abt timing with other jobs, I was so disturbed because I wanted to work with her & I love the story but I opened up to her and told her all my challenges she said uzee I will move the job because of you for one month.
