On Wednesday, Pozze took to social media to announce that singer Size 8 unfollowed and blocked him on Instagram, yet she is a gospel artiste who should be preaching forgiveness.

“Nitakufinya… Niko na kazi -
You know me well , you know what am capable of doing … Nitakufinya last warning ⚠️” reads DJ’s comment on Willy Paul’s post.
