"Vibes will not get this guy anywhere, maybe he doesn’t know that. Also, it’s gonna be interesting to see what the job descriptions are for these ambassadors and what the deliverables are, or it’s just vibing all the way."

@Ancestorsassoc1 added:

"Great ideas but nothing will come out of this minister. He is embarking in a childhood dream of meeting with celebrities (his favorites). Create your own thing and when he sees success in what you going, he will visit you."
