He also said he is now concentrating on making good music; “I’m not interested in women, drugs, alcohol and other things like that. I’m only going to be concentrating on making good music for my fans.”

    This is his new way of making money. Can a reggae musician do without alcohol, smoke or women? I really doubt it.

      Giving one’s life to Christ isn’t a problem and Faske’s decision to start living for Christ is not your problem, let him do whatever he likes. Don’t doubt anything

      So it’s only Deeperlife that is a good church in the entire Nigeria or how? Stop creating unnecessary confusion and commotion here. Let him decide where to go on his own.
