“It sounds so absurd to me and I want to use this medium to thank all those who are creating division in the Ijaw music industry to continue doing so, but they should also remember that nothing last forever.

“I am so embarrassed to hear that such event has gone political, and I want to state clearly that King Robert Ebizimor was not a politician, rather he was a legend, and Oracle of Ijaw nation, a father to all.

“I am using this medium again to apologize to my esteem fans, friends and well wishers who attended the event in other to see me performed not to worry, or neither feel bad, but rather they should go ahead and enjoy the event because we are celebrating a father and a legend.
