"These songs aren't even's like when Faith Evans say "I love you" and Mary J Blige sings "I love you".. Different time and all. Scrafoc can go Scrafoc far away and leave our Khadzi alone!"

"Ma90s will know there was a song chencha magear and there was a dance to it. I think it was Arthur Mafokate if I’m not wrong. On top of that, this is a beat by vigro? How do we sue Malawi as a country?"
