Through a Facebook live video during his conversations with Isma Olaxess and Caroline Marcah, MC Kats said he was forced into revealing his status by Kayz’s trickery.

He also noted that many people started saying he was mad after that interview but he has always maintained what he said then in subsequent interviews.

After that interview, many people actually didn’t believe it. They said I was berserk, considering what I was going through at the time.

I had to come back in subsequent interviews to confirm what I had said earlier. I realized then that there was no turning back. I embraced it.
