Your new marriage that produced this child was characterized by controversies. What is the real situation of things?

It was all blackmail. I can’t join issues with a blackmailer, and I just concluded that such is life. Life is a teacher. I always believe in God and no man can destroy the work of God in me. And whosoever God has placed in a high place, nobody can pull down. I don’t know the objective of all the allegations, but I guess it’s a calculated attempt to bring me down by all negative forces. I just decided to keep quiet because you are spoken of only when you are relevant.

Who is the blackmailer? Who do you suspect?

I don’t know and I am not interested in knowing. All I am interested in knowing is God. All I know is that when God is working, no man can destroy such work.
