Thank you for the music you played for Us while growing up, The reading listens, The Christmas clothes, the flogging, The go and face the wall, The one new word every day, The go and bring your books, the evening lessons, The show me your fingernails and your teeth and many more. Thank you for teaching me the importance of repetition.Thank you, sir. We would miss you”.
He has now clarified his post which led to the rumour that he lost his father.
He wrote: “You people should try and leave me alone.. my father is alive and doing well. I wonder how you people come up with all this information. I didn’t say anything about my father being dead.A simple investigation would do the world much good”.
His fellow celebrities joined in condemning all those peddling the rumour.
