You rip what you sow.
Buharis driver, he chopped, he died
NNPC GMD, he chopped he died.

People never remember that all you got in this life is the legacy you leave.

In one hundred years people will read history books and see;

Nnamdi kanu - terrorist
Shekau - terrorist
Fulani - terrorist
Buhari - corrupt incompetent bigot
R Kelly - child molester cum rapist

The way they are after that guy, I suspect there is more to his case..
Looks like someone who broke some "codes".. They even denied him bail, beat him up in jail and practically have him locked up like he is already convicted.. There seem a desperation to convict..
Dude is going..., Like someone set up by some ruthless Mafia..

R.kelly is being witch-hunted by the establishment. I think he signed a contract with the devil before the fame & refused to keep his Pact of the deal.
He is not the only American entertainer who is pedophile after all Jay-z dated Aliyah when she was 16 while Madonna has a thing for young black male kids from Africa.
R.kelly's case is deeper than we think.

I don't believe any of these rooster and bull stories
Was there any black underaged girl that accused Kelly of rape?
Why was it that it's all about white underaged girls only

Show me just one black successful man in the united States who's made it to the limelight without being held up or caught up with fake allegations

How do you expect a world class celebrity whom different models , hottest chicks in the world crave for his attention
Someone that can get any woman he wants with just a wink of an eye

You now believe that kinda man will go for underaged girls?
And now they're all white underaged girls abi?

Where's 2pac and notorious b.i.g today ?
What makes y'all think 2pac has a heart to order biggies death
What makes y'all think biggie is that heartless to have pac shot ?
Where's the likes of Dmx?
Where's mohammed alli what happened?

The white men will never let a black man rule for too long without implicating him with different problems

R.kelly has been a target since day one
Show me a great white musician who's once made it to the limelight and end up falling as a nobody , I'm waiting

Around 2002 R.kelly was in a basketball court training with his homies and some white guys were sent to shoot him unfortunately a close friend of Kelly saw them on time , he sacrifices his life to save Kelly , and he ended up releasing a track then which I've forgotten the title

Blacks aren't safe out there , if you wanna live peacefully on the states as a black man don't let anyone know you own anything
Let them all see you as a fool
Make your money and relocate just like Akon
Akon knew what's up that's why he left , even converted to islam as the senegalese that he is
I know in few years to come he'll be found innocent cuz someday conscience will become a worst nightmare for those lil girls that were used to set him up

They'll grow up to listen to his songs someday , and it'll make them speak the truth later on
Even in our Nigerian music industry same thing , beef forever with their fake love for each other

That's why 'Nas' said something in the track titled hate me now
He said "people warned me when you're on top there's envy"

The likes of Eazy E, ice cube , rakeem , where they at?
