Nigerian cultural entrepreneur, filmmaker, professor and author Onyeka Nwelue, who is best known for his novel The Abyssinian Boy, claimed that Mavins boss is broke and he lives as a tenant.
Nweke took to his Instagram to advise young people not to get carried away by the flamboyant and flashy livestyle the celebrities portray on social media, he encouraged that Nigerians should take pride in their own work no matter how little it may seem.
Nwelue’s post reads:
“Garb yourself with some self-esteem, self-confidence and self-pride. We are all poor. Us and the celebrities. All the celebrities in Nigeria,” said the writer-cum-filmmaker who is famous for speaking his mind without bothering with filters.
“Every celebrity in Nigeria is broke. They are like me. They don’t have the money they tell you they have. Many of them I have seen their bank statements. I don’t care if they start avoiding me now. I know better. Stop feeling inadequate, young people. You see as I beg for money publicly, that is how these celebrities suffer and beg for money secretly.”
And to buttress his point, he included “Don Jazzy is a tenant. He is broke. Forget everything .”
Don Jazzy, who is known for doling out cash to needy fans on social media spoke up by agreeing entirely with Onyeka Nwelue in his signature cheesy tone. “True talk” said the Mavin boss, and he went on to add that he is only speaking for himself.
“May God provide for us shall sha” Don Jazzy concluded.
