To think I am finding out the nickname you were hiding from me like this is terribly painful. Just this short period of meeting and knowing you was amazing and now the wicked people of Idiaraba have unjustly taken my friend away. Let’s fight for Stephen #JusticeForStephen pic.twitter.com/NGp03BKeLJ — efficacyyinka (@efficacyyinka) April 5, 2019
