Amidst tears, the actor revealed that he was almost begging on the streets for food to survive but didn’t because of his status as a star.
The veteran Actor noted further that he is not begging for money to feed but for some money to get equipments to continue his job as an artiste.
“Seven years ago, things got bad for me. I was not ill and whatever will make me ill and people will start contributing for me, I thank God that it did not happen to me. However, what is currently happening to me is more than being ill. In 2017, my home got burnt from top to down and my wife and children deserted me.”
“My studio, where all my equipment are, also got burnt. Since the incident happened over a year ago, I have been sleeping in my church as I don’t have money to rent an apartment. Feeding has also been difficult for me. All my four cars are no longer with me. I sold one to feed, one got burnt, another one got knocked,” he said amidst tears.
