Why are y’all surprised about Slimcase??— Edmund 💉 (@EdmundOris) May 31, 2020
Always remember that “Celebrities” are normal humans like you that just got popular cos they’re good in one aspect of life.
That they’re celebrities doesn’t automatically equate to them having sense.
Know this and know peace.
Slimcase had every chance to reply that comment about the murder of that young girl intelligently but he refused to. Goes to show how dumb most of our celebrities are.— Valar Mørghulis 👁🗨 (@viccetti) May 31, 2020

Slimcase thinks the death of George Floyd is a “global pandemic” and the death of the Lagos girl should be left for channels to talk about— Tee 🇳🇬 (@tolutheking) May 31, 2020
