“For all of you judging a man you don’t even know, you need to meet Ber. Great Guy. He has paid his price in building the industry. Ask yourself why no comedian is saying anything about this man amidst the drama. I have so much respect for Victor, did you actually know that Ber was among the few people that hangout with Kasee before he passed on?” Wrote Sleepy.
