“Leaked video: My story
“Sadly, I woke up yesterday morning to a video of me surfacing online after almost 3years that I and my associates had been persistently blackmailed with requests for funds over the 3seconds video.
“It is a pity that I find myself in this situation as I am supposed to be a role model but I am human. While I won’t like to go into details now because security agents are already working on this case, it is important for those denying to know that I am the only one who could tell who had access to record such a video of me and I have screenshots of conversations where the person asked for money otherwise they would release it to the public.
“The deed has been done and I am sure that the long arm of the law would catch up with the culprit(s).
“However, I use this opportunity to apologise to my fans and families who are understandably disappointed by this video to have it in their hearts to forgive me. I have asked Allah the Most High (SWT) for forgiveness and I know I will find mercy in Him.
“I shall not be commenting on this again until all investigations are complete and I will appreciate if I am given proper opportunity to reflect and seek Allah”s face.
“I thank all those who have reached out and I beseech you to remember me in your prayers at this diffcult period.”
