We watch your movie
Give up money
We watched you all through our childhood
All these as an actor we hear everyday, I offer all I had on me and one of them dragged me by my agbada and demanded for an amount I can’t pay. Asked him to leave me, he said “Do your worse” the rest is story. Please stop harassing actors or entertainers, do you pay anyone for doing your job, No it’s our job too. Accept all we offer when we do. Remember, once a boxer always a boxer”.
