American rapper is back to the headlines after winning a bet he placed on Adesanya to win and true to his word, this time around, he was able to smile back to the bank after winning 1,840,000,000 dollars, estimated at 241million Kenyan shillings. He had placed a stake of $400k.
The New Zealander was delighted with the win and he expressed his happiness. “Fortify your mind and feel this level of happiness. I’m blessed to feel this again and again and again. But guess what – you’ll never feel this level of happiness if you don’t go for something in your life. When they knock you down, if you stay down, you will never get that resolve.”
