“I WOKE UP TO 96 MISSED CALLS

My mind was just praising God yesterday for no reason. If you were on my IG story, you would see it.
The spirit is one. Thank you Jesus.
Okay, when I saw nomination, I screamed and told my Husband, JAKANRIWO was Nominated for AMVCA. He said he saw it but didn’t want to wake me, That JANKARIWO got 2 NOMINATIONS. Mumu me, I started arguing that No, he didn’t check well.
