I woke up one morning, gave thanks to God for my life, my family , especially my lovely wife and my child. Though I had several messages of threats from unknown contacts, I never made news out of them because I felt it was my private life. My wife was stabbed some time ago and this, has really been a cause for being extra careful. It was just by the grace of God that she survived.
I made needed preparations for a program I had no idea what the outcome would be. I watched other artists walk up stage for awards. I had none yet. I was still thankful to God though. Then, God being so good and my hard work being recognized, I was called out for an award. Few minutes later, I was attacked on stage by an opponent and with the fear of the past experience with my wife, I exposed a gun. I didn’t attempt to pull the trigger but the mere fact that the gun was on sight has been a great deal to me.
Maybe I should have remained calm! Who knows what would have happened if I hadn’t exposed the gun? The situation could have been more than this but in all things I give thanks to God. I pray that my brand doesn’t get affected because of my act of defense. This world wouldnt be a fair place if my brand gets affected for committing no crime.
I guess we all have learnt lessons from what happened. Though some say that it is best to ignore but I believe that there is the need to fight back sometimes but in a way you wouldn’t get muddy. Its better not to react and lose, rather than overacting and tarnishing your image. I am very sure he has also learnt a lot from what happened.
