The advice to celebrities is to stay away from politics cos we’re the ones who will be used as scapegoats but we’ve been staying away and the situation has been getting worse so I’m no longer staying away.
Still making up my mind on who’s the best for the job! We have one person we the youths don’t want! And then we have the other two, but what truly makes one better than the other? Who’s actually going to make a difference?.”
