“I believe it was because of the love they have for me that’s why they didn’t want me to leave but I’ve been able to end the relationship in peace now, I’ve got my release papers sorted with them and I’m looking forward to fresh challenge, my agent is working on something which I will let it cool for now, we’ll see how it goes.”
