“Braveheart, strong heart, gentle heart, kind heart, pure heart, peacemaker, hot stepper, upcoming politician, I know you’d want me to add ‘stylish’ to this list but ummmm… yes hahaha (abi @mekkamillions @therealjaybreeze @traficbabz @elizabeth elohor @tiwaayankoya make I add am?)” she tweeted.
“It was stated that they sought to smear your reputation, but you protected theirs by refusing to reveal your side of the story. I’ve never met somebody who was as brave/strong as you while simultaneously being as sweet and nice.
“I’m not sure why you always laughed at my silly jokes; you were willing to take a bullet for your loved ones. 44, my black president, you’re resting well now, far from this cruel world.
“All your boys are a wreck, I’m sure you see them all crying like babies. You better tell them to be strong men. I’m allowed to cry, I’m a girl; so, don’t try to console me, I won’t listen to you anyway. I really don’t know what you were trying to prove sha, by leaving like this. It is so unlike you.
“This isn’t the end; that thing you and I used to talk about, I PROMISE I WILL DO IT, and you will be proud of me. We’re merely burying your body today because your beautiful spirit will never be trapped in that sand, and don’t worry, we’ve got @manlikeabdul omw on the case. Habeeb, I adore you, and we adore you. King, till we meet again” (sic)
