“Do you know what it means to be a billionaire? I guess they are just handing out billionaire status title for free

The Ghanaian also mocked Zari for marrying Shakib Lutaaya who is 12 years younger than her, saying that she married a high school boy.
“Failed career? What did you accomplish when you were 25? You found access t an iPhone and bought internet and build a fake life and let’s not forget your sex tape
“…since you think you’re better than everyone and now you’re married to a high school boy. I look like a she/he? You literally shake anytime you see me, be for real,” Fantana added.
