When he was alive, he always want us to do things together. We can’t question God but I’m really touched. He is still young and we started together. I shot his first movie and he was the first person that discovered my acting skills. We have done a lot together, we have fought and settled. I know everything about him.
‘’We still spoke yesterday, we spoke around 9:30 and he fell around 10 am. I was called immediately and we drove him to the hospital but he died before we got to the hospital.’’
‘’He called me after his birthday that I should come and take some the clothes he used for his birthday shoot. I told him not to worry but I didn’t know he was passing a message across to me’’.
Yesterday, he sent money for a contribution we always do on Sundays, he sent it early and I questioned his choice to send it early. His response was we don’t know what will happen the next day or in the next minute, I didn’t know he was bidding me farewell’’.
