“I am going live because I haven’t been on Instagram the entire day and everyone thinks I am dogging Pabi Cooper and I am so sad about that. why everything I do must be taken so fucked up?. How come you guys always think I’m being an asshole?. Anyway, I came here to be like, I’ve texted Pabi to be like ‘ohh my god this confusion is so sad’.
“I really thought she is booked in Nigeria. She is killing it right now and when she worded it in a Nigerian accent, in ‘book me abeg’. I thought she was making a joke about being booked, I thought she was kidding, I thought she was flexing on us,” said Pearl.
