While he did not name the woman, he stated how he was criticized and vilified by her for speaking his truth. He also linked to this experience to how Nigeria kills people’s dreams.

He took to Instagram to write:

“EXACTLY 7 YEARS AGO.

TINAPA STUDIOS, CALABAR, 3PM.

“I NEVER FORGOT. BUT I FORGAVE.

“If you were in the room that day, and you witnessed that episode, now be the Judge. What did Gideon do to warrant such a steep Sentencing? I was also made to apologize for My Truth being too TRUTHFUL.

“WHEN MOSES BECAME THE PHARAOH.

“Folks will try to take food out of your mouth…for not playing their kind of Politics. And that’s why we say Nigeria is a Killer Of Dreams. My flaw is not being able to hold My Truth in my stomach. My Bad.

“But if you sit in sh*t long enough,
soon you will get used to the stench.

“I always pray to be a Testimony.
Today again, I Testify IN TRUTH,
GOD IS GOOD TO ME.

“I’ve run the gauntlet…but STILL I RISE.

“My Mother’s prayers have LONG been answered.
This is just the date of its MANIFESTATION.

“GOD BE PRAISED.
