Davido, you have influenced a Ponzi scheme (Racksterli) that allegedly deceived a lot of people, so please make sure you conduct a background check on Rappogge so that your followers will not believe your words and become a scammer for the second time victim. Promote a brand only if you are sure it is legal.
