“This a Young super Talented life cut short , Can’t believe im typing this tribute about @hostedbyeve ☹️☹️☹️
She called me few weeks ago , was crying and thanking me for giving her the biggest break in her career, she said she started getting bigger jobs since i let her host my wedding @theartistandhismuse21 along side with @kennyblaqmcfr_ 😰
Something i did without thinking twice about it.

How did this happen , @itshelenpaul which is my usual host for all my events was abroad and we were scouting around for another mc that can fill her shoes. a blog posted @hostedbyeve hosting an event where she was making an old woman dance and i fell in love with her, few of my friends wanted me to use someone with a bigger name as usual and i said no i like this girl , i had my planner reached her and book her anonymously.

Then we had her come to my empire for fittings for her dress for the day , when she came she was super happy to find out the kind of job she was paid for , even on the day she blended with @kennyblaqmcfr_ like hey had known for ages , you should see this smally q in action , no matter your mood , you must dance and laugh when shes on the mic , Eve Rest on my love , in the little time you were on earth you really shook it and made your mark , Glad to have been part of your journey, you shall never be forgotten 👼 fly with the angels 👸 REST IN PEACE 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 “.
