Fella Makafui disclosed that it took Shatta Wale’s advice and support to pull her out of those dark times.
« I broke down a couple of years ago and nearly took my life. There was this day I was having a meeting with my manager and he just called me and was like Precious I need to tell you something and he was like I know you can’t do something like this but I want you to be honest with me and I was okay what up and he said oh your tape and I am like what ? my sex tape? Where? And then it escalated quickly and I was like I can’t take it anymore.
Shatta Wale saved me from that controversy. He called me to clarify that it wasn’t me in the tape and apparently, the girl had a tattoo on her back and I don’t. I would have considered ending my life if Shatta had not called me that night ».
