Also, in this video, he also told the audience how his life was ruined by money, alcohol, fame, and drugs — and how he, eventually, survived the challenges and temptations in his life.
In one of his Facebook posts, the motivational speaker said, “I talk about God because I believe in Him. I am not trying to offend anybody, but the evidence in my own life trumps your opinion about whether or not He exists.”
Without a doubt, Mero has inspired a lot of individuals around the globe with his wonderful message about love and positivity.
