“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,” he said.
Alibaba further went by hinting at a story of when he had an encounter with an unnamed actress, in Dubai, he explained that the said actress’s trip was sponsored by an anonymous government official, two days after the trip, the said actress went on social media to boast.
“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 will come here and be putting them on the high jump,” he narrated.
The veteran stand-up comedian also added that Nollywod actresses who feature in Yoruba movies have bragged about building houses worth N125 million.
“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,” he said.
