Why is the world so cold – Nollywood actress Didi Ekanem

Curvy Nollywood actress and entrepreneur Didi Ekanem way in on the cold murder of George Floyd and also speaks on how cold the world is. She took to social media to share this piece.... @didiekanem This picture is a nightmare. If you have watched the video, I don’t know how you were able to sleep. I did, only with one eye as I couldn’t with both. It was terror-stricken and heartbreaking . What was even more appalling was the other policemen that just stood there to watch him die. Now the passersby, how were they able to control themselves that much because I’m sure if I were at the scene, I could have been shot. The drama in me would have pounced on that man. Sadly, people no longer die a natural death. In America, they are either shot, strangled to death or they commit suicide . Over...
