@kushdiboss7386 What kind of a song is this

@mupenziallen808 May you face God himself...and may God teach you a lesson that he is not a man that you should play with his name the way you want, His word says you do all of those things and I remain quiet and you think I am like you. You are going to face God himself....if is this you can teach your sons and daughters about our Jesu Christ ...you deserve kibogo yamungu.
