Sibley went on to ask them, “Do you have a lot of people who watch you, who follow you, how good does it feel to know that you’re continuing to be successful at every single point in your career? And people still want you every single time! How good does that feel?”
I.M responded saying, “I just want to say thank you so much and I really appreciate (it). And we’re just gonna aim – more goals.”
