He wrote, “Today was definitely not the best of days”.
“For the first time in my life I woke up hallucinating, couldn’t recognize my own people. Felt very strange. Was extremely cranky. I forgot my location. Sao cafe looked like my uncle’s house in Bode Thomas ( no joke) from my childhood days. I actually almost gave up today. But thanks to God and my people for being there and standing strong and not taking to heart my actions and stubbornness cause it wasn’t me. The devil is a liar!!!! We are all going to cheer loudly on the 10th day.”
