Actually, he gave her a card with instructions.

“I told her to treat this card like it’s ‘Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket,’ because she gets to choose any home she wants, anywhere she wants,” Johnson said.

“Guess what?” Ata Johnson asked in a video Johnson posted of his mother opening the card. “I get a brand-new house,” she told her granddaughter, Jasmine, 3, in the video.
