The pioneer of contemporary comedy in Nigeria, Alibaba has questioned Nollywood actresses over the source of their wealth.
The talented comedian expressed his concern with the question in a viral video on social media.
Alibaba, while considering how much actresses in his generation earn, which he felt won’t be commensurate with the properties they claim to have acquired, asked:
“How many movies have you done that gave you 45 million to buy a house? You that just joined the industry. The people that have been in the industry did not buy.”
The talented comedian who has made a lot of impact in the comedy industry narrated his encounter with one of said actresses in Dubai.
“I may be tempted to mention names but I won’t. We went to Dubai one time and while we were waiting we saw this actress and we saw a particular protocol of a person. He comes later and gives her a key and she goes upstairs. A few days later I see her posting…the ones that do business we know them, you’ll come here and be putting them on high jump.”
“Even if they pay you 5 million per movie how many movies do you do in a year? We know the ones that use their mileage and popularity to do business. But the ones we know cannot even act in an English movie it has to be ‘kilo so pe’ that kind of movie, you will now come and tell me you raised 125 million to buy a house in Lekki phase one.”
“Next thing they are talking about people you will now be putting mouth, ‘what is wrong with this man? He can put his thing inside his pant.”
Meanwhile, the specific issue which led to the matter was not revealed and he did not also mention names, which made it difficult for people to have an idea of the actual cause of his matter.
