AY Schools Fans On Why Entertainers Flaunt Their Wealth
Popular Nigerian comedian, AY Makun who also doubles as an actor has taken to Instagram to educate his fans on why it is important for celebrities specifically entertainers flaunt their wealth on social media.
The laugh maestro shared his reasons in response to a fan who reacted to his a video post of his flaunting his house on Instagram.
The follower in reaction reasoned that wealthy men like Aliko Dangote, Bill Gates or Jeff Bezoz who Forbes rates as some of the richest men in the world don’t show off their properties on any social media platform. To this, AY pointed out that those in show business have to ensure that they are being talked about as this is the only way people can know what they do.
His post reads in part:
“If we are going to be honest with ourselves, we should admit that some of us go into show business wanting people to talk about us and wanting everyone to know who we are and the things we can do. But that also does not take away the fact that there are a whole bunch of people who will still not like us. No matter how we try.
Why do you think talents post their works online? Why do people watch The Kardashians even when some believe that they have less talent like AY? Why would some people come out of Big Brother Nigeria and suddenly become relevant? It’s all because In show business you must have something to show before the business would come. Entertaining you and showing you a part of my lifestyle, might surprisingly just be me carrying out my brand ambassadorial duty in the video that went viral. Do you even know if the builders of my house or sellers of my cars are giving me a percentage for every contact i bring? Abi na crime to promote my wife @Midas_interiors work too?”
According to AY, the likes of Dangote won’t flaunt their wealth on social media because they are not into the business of entertainment which is essential to make people relax and laugh.
He concluded his post by saying that he wants to be an inspiration to every young person that wants to get into show business.
It would be recalled that AY recently schooled fans on the difference between fame and wealth.
