Unfortunately, his clients would have none of it.

See the post below…

”The show must go on… @therealremisurutu. Many years ago I had chicken pox… 2002 or 2003… can’t remember. So I made arrangements for my guys to go stand in for me, at a Total Staff Party booking, that I had been paid for, at Fantasyland.

I called the client. Mentioned my condition and how Tee A, Teju and Basketmouth would stand in for me. But they were not taking that. So my doctors, at the Heart Hospital, observed me for 2 days and said I could go do the event and come back straight to my hospital bed.

That was the only option. There was no way, the son of man was going to refund 500k. In fact that was what convinced the doctor.

You should have seen the doctors face… he looked worried for me. Then said why will you sef charge that kind of money. Anyway… the show must go on.

I rubbed calamine lotion all over but foe the visible parts. Thank God for Senegalese then. Turned out to be one of my best performances.

So when I saw @therealremisurutu I could relate… weeks after losing her daughter… she hit the set. #goldstatue#goforgold”

We all handle grief in different ways, the main thing is to make sure we are not rushed into normalcy or dwell too long in grief. May God comfort her.
