Justin, a student from the University of Ghana, demonstrated his love for the rapper with a short video of himself rapping to a song of the rapper. A post of Facebook by Leticia Ampah read, “Oh my God! Let this be true! Can’t wait! Ready to empty my account”, she said. Another social media post by Amad Kissi read, “This will be the biggest show this year, period!”.
