No Actor Can Own a Lekki House From Movies – Aremu Afolayan

Published

on

As many actors continue to own choice houses in highbrow parts of Lagos, popular Nollywood actor, Aremu Afolayan, is not convinced that they made their money through the craft.

In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, he said Nigerians are quick to believe anything especially once it is on the internet but the truth is that most actors driving big cars most likely got their money from influential people.

He said, “By the way, I live my life, people tend to think that I am the richest Yoruba actor, but that is a lie. Nigerians assume a lot. I live in a rented apartment because I cannot afford to build one.

When they see me buy a new car, they don’t know if I paid for the car in instalments; instead they call me a big boy. What type of big boy lives on N50,000 or N100,000 income per film as an actor?

I challenge any Nigerian actor that is living larger than life to state how they made their money because I am sure it is not from the movies they make. I am talking about both the English and Yoruba actors.

If they like, they can say they make N5m per film, they cannot afford to build or buy a house at Lekki or Victoria Island or Ikoyi. It is impossible. They should call out mathematicians to figure it out. It is a lie.

It is because they meet some influential people that give them businesses or they have side businesses. Since we do not all meet such people or make the kind of money they make through these people, we just have to be content with what we have.

In my life, I have never seen an ‘educated illiterate’ country like Nigeria. Nigerians are very gullible when it comes to judging other people’s lifestyle since they do not know anything, they assume. Then social media came and it made things worse.”

Published

He wrote: “What men want to do to you is always on their mind. Appreciate the man who actually opens up to you about the things that you are doing that he doesn’t like.”

“That man loves you. Most men simply place you where they think you belong, and this is why stories of, “I was there with him from day one but he left me and married someone else” abounds.”

“Yes, you stayed. Yes, you made a few sacrifices for him. The problem was that, you were not willing to change certain habits and character that he complained about. Sometimes this is the reason why men quietly leave you.”
