“Today I want to let some things off my chest, this is what twitter is for right? I know we live in an age of ignore and keep ignoring, I live my life based on that, if something is not making me money, adding growth to my life or drawing me close to Jesus… I ignore it
“I get that we all love a good joke, we love to have a laugh to take the stress off most times and it’s been a heavy year all round but certain things have gone all too long because I have ignored it most times and after a while a perception is born, my legacy is important to me.
“The energy you put in to spreading false stories should be the same energy you use to clarify and retract same stories but over the years I have become an easy target and this has to stop.
“I have given 10 years of my life working in the media, I know how important the media is but last week looking at what the media has become made me feel ashamed, has it really come to this? Are we really not bothered about investigative journalism, are we that lazy?”
