Dear Yul Edochie, When next you want to appear in a movie, ignore the script, don’t read it, just appear in front of the camera for your role.
We want to watch you say those words from your heart.
Replying to @YulEdochie
I just don’t know why sir Pete didn’t open that electrical shop for you. You would have been better off in an electrical shop! At least you would be playing draft when there are no customers instead of coming here to talk senselessly
Replies from other fans explaining that it is because the president can’t pronounce the word “COVID-19”, while another reply says: “a heartless man cannot speak from his hert”, so that the reason for using scripts.
