Thank you, I am grateful.
How do you feel emerging winner?
I feel blessed, good and so honoured. I believe it’s the doing of the Lord. It’s not by power nor might but God did it for me. And I am grateful to Him. And I appreciate all my fans for believing in me. I need their support more than ever and I will make them proud.
