This is indeed a Sad News for Edo State Hiphop and the People of Edo State. Biggie was always happy and took everyone along. He Hustled very well & kept believing that everyone will become big one day. The hustle just started paying. He left a legacy and may God help his wife, mum and 3 kids. RIP Epa

Brief illness is the latest death tool in naija. Young people should start looking after themselves. Get your regular check ups. Amplicox and all those antibacterial drugs are not going to deter major illnesses. This is just not cool at all

We feeling like the world felt, when 2pac and Biggie Smallz left/ our very own Chup Knuckle General, this is not fair/ at least not yet, we need you right here on earth/ though I hear God saying he needs you more right up there!/...but God, you should have waited a little while/ who gon' take care of his wife nd the little child?/ ...and his son is not yet grown/ waiting for his daddy to come, but he's not yet home/ tears in the streetz, prayers as we speak, A king has left his gaddamn throne/... It's sad writing these many lines/ he was a helping hand, must have touched many lives/...The saddest~part/'sizing' your gracious acts/ I mean judging by size, u ws the big one! The man with the largest~heart/Told me you admired by writing skillz/ sad I'm the one writing this/ shone like THE SUN, we'll remember you DAILY, TRUST!/ your death came like a PUNCH, I bet THE NATION feels the heavy loss/ Naaa I'm not talking newspapers on a tribute/ but who's gon send me news from the front pages of THE TRIBUNE?/ In your eyes, all fingers was equal tho/ times are hard, else we'd pour out a liquor bro/ I know you dressed in your fav polo nd shorts, wit a Converse all~star~features / and angels screaming SNAP IT!..cameras fall~out~ pictures!/ your wisdom infinite/ we'll never stop believing, striving to be the best we can be then we exceed our limits, that was your reasoning/

I like entertainment gist, I love LIB, but I also know that there's more to life than all we see.
We all need to step up our game with God.
It doesn't matter that you are a good person, your good character will not save you.
Your money and fame will not save you either...

Pls make up ur mind to take the things of God more seriously. Study ur Bible, go to church, learn how to pray. Make sure that when you die, you are sure of heaven.

Linda, I know my comment may irritate you cos am always talking about God, just let my message flow please. This is not for commercial purpose, nobody is paying me for it..I just want to talk abt God in my own little way. Let's be about God okay.

Obehi was a Faithful & Love Husband, Father, Son, Friend... He give his wife the best & provided for his kids. Always made sure he checked up on his mum. He always made sure all his family members & friends are doing good. He had too much passion for Music especially HIP HOP. He Contributed to the South South Music, Carried Young Upcoming Artistes along & helped them. He was Made in Uniben & was Made on the Streets of Benin City. He was way more than a friend to me, I knew him on a personal level. Your son & daughters will grow up to know that their dad was a great man. As long as we your true friends are alive, they will never suffer. I know what u will do if this had happened to me or any of your other true friends. I miss him so much. Adieu Biggie, Continue to Rest in the Lord. Respect & Salute KING... You too get Levelz... --------- DJ Buzzle
