Even if you do Blood money, Ifa can’t afford the kind of money that Mompha has. It’s almost impossible to tell me there isn’t illegal shit involved. Probably laundering. All he had to do was stay lowkey but no.

If you have been asking “God When” to Mompha’s standard of life and lifestyle please don’t hesitate to ask ‘God When” to his current condition and location. All equations must be balanced.
