Nigerian comedian, Ayo Makun, has taken to social media to address people who are in the habit of asking him for money.
The celebrity life may come with many perks, but it also has its downside and that is the expectations people have of celebrities and how often people reach out to them for financial assistance.
Ace Nigerian comedian and actor, Ayo Makun popularly known as AY, has taken to social media to complain about this issue.
According to him, many people who constantly come to him for help fail to understand that he too might just become broke if he gives everyone.
He wrote on Twitter:
“From not wanting to disappoint anybody, people consistently expects u to please everyone. It’s only in Nigeria your 1Million Naira will attract 20 friends & family with 100k problems each?Why do they always fail to understand that if you give everybody, u will become broke too?”

No one can solve everyody’s financial problem,not even Bill Gate or the Amazon owner. But the best you can do is to solve the much you can. If it is only two people you can empower usual stick to that.

Bro is not necessarily mean you should give them all the 100k each person required from you, no matter how small or little you can bless their lives too. Do you know that is not everything we ask God to give us He do too.? Some people just needed a little help for the to get on.
