God hears the cry of the children affected by the use of drugs and render judgment enough for all those drug dealers,” said one upset fan @dlnobby. And another, @Sarah.boazi, chirped in, supporting Wema: “Fear not! When you pass in the wonders God is with you! God makes a way there is no way! You’re going to be lifted up again for re not afraid.”
