He added, “I’ve spoken to a lot of people, some of them said, “He just got a bag from African Bank blah blah, etc … “that tells you everything you need to know about this f*cked up, fake-ass algorithm world we have created for ourselves to live in. Riky went to Hilton, he grew up around money.”

The Composure hitmaker said that men are traumatized and have no one to talk to. He added that women need to understand that men are not perfect, and they need approval, love, and affection as well.

Wrapping up his message, The Supamega urged people to love and take care of each other.

“Please, can we RESET and go back to FAMILY VALUES?!. Can we (myself included) start going to Church Again? Please, can we start some sort of dialogue about MEN in this country because it’s our duty to protect you, to provide and care for you? We cannot make this thing work without each other. We are crying out for your help. This is so traumatic,” he concluded.
