“He disappointed me, and I blame myself for expecting too much. I anticipated the same treatment I offered him, but unfortunately, the energy wasn’t reciprocated. I had to step away from the toxicity,” she explained.

It can be recalled that Efia Odo revealed that things have gone sour between the rapper and herself. “I was a fan but now I’m not a fan anymore. The problem is not his current music releases.
