She also noted that she is the one behind, "You have one minute remaining" - the voice mobile phone users on MTN normally hear when they are running out of airtime.

To prove her point, Jessica repeated the famous words of the "MTN lady" who sometimes interrupts calls to inform callers of their credit balance.
Many Ghanaians have taken to a number of social media platforms to react to the video and expressed their surprise over the revelation.
Veteran Ghanaian musician, Reggie Rockstone indicated that he never knew this about Jessica and gave her thumbs up.

After being exposed for causing fear and panic in the country, Shatta Wale came out to defend his action and claimed he was acting on a prophecy made by one Stephen Akwesi Appiah famed as Jesus Ahuofe.
