The internet is a very toxic place - says Bien

Bien's reset and rewind

“So, after a long hard look in the mirror, I have decided to change my ways. The internet is a very toxic place and I just want to take a step back. There are a lot of habits that I picked up along the way that I am leaving behind this year. I just wanna reset and rewind. Thank you,” Bien said.

He added that he is considering quitting 'jaba' (Khat) and other substances because he is a changed person.

He noted that he does not expect the journey to be easy and he is prepared to walk the talk.

“Time to reset and rewind. From this day onwards, I am a changed man.

"I am even considering quitting jaba and other substances. It won't be easy but the Lord is with me. Let me see my true fans in the comments below,” he added.

Bien’s statement attracted lots of positive feedback from a section of his fans, who lauded him for his bold decision.
