Just a day after reports surfaced that she had collapsed from exhaustion and had to be hospitalized, the “Top Gyal” addressed fans in an Instagram Live, where she became emotional as she spoke about disobeying the call of God. In the video, Shaneil was moved to the brink of tears as she explained her internal conflict.

“Mi say to him say nuh badda feel say mi a go chu dis and me feel no way bout it, because guess wah, all a weh mi a face now, it a move mi closer to God,” she firmly said.
She continued, “Mi have a calling pan mi life and God a knock pan mi door and mi never a answer. I will never find peace and I will never be happy if mi nuh start do mi duty weh God have set fi mi,” she said teary-eyed.

My God is forgiving and nuh matta weh mi do inna Him eyes, He’s forgiving and as long as mi have life, He has made it possible to come before Him and ask fi forgiveness. Mi nah guh mek because of weh happen now, mi mek di wrong choice. Nah guh mek di wrong choice.”
