    Ayo frighten
    that’s just the warning
    God don’t like wicked, god always say to love your neighbors (down island ppl) but y’all hate them and expect to live happily
    Something big coming soon for the bvi ayo start praying for y’all wicked sins
    Example,,,, some employers, most of the greedy landlords, immigration, labour, government
    The creator will take everything from y’all soon

    Honestly I can’t lie it get a few good BVI Islanders,,, employers and landlords
