He said; “90% of all the friendships are fake. There are people I’ve been working with for years. If you call their names you go say na Harry guy be this. Dem no be my guy.
“As a matter of fact, those are my real enemies. If you see Soso now, you’ll say Soso is my friend. Soso is not my friend, Soso is my enemy. He sent people to come and kill me in Port Harcourt, no jokes. Ask my team, ask everyone.”
When asked if he had proof Harrysong said, “I have evidence, I have videos, I have pictures.
“This is no joke. You’ll say he is my friend, he’s not my friend. He wants to kill me.”
