Hunger Won’t Let The Poor Stay At Home – AY Makun
Nigerian comedian AY Makun has shared his two cents on the current stay at home order by the Nigerian government in a bid to control the spread of coronavirus in the country.
The comic act who is also an actor is of the opinion that Nigeria is currently fighting two battles, the one against coronavirus and the one against hunger.
He took to his social media page to share that while the rich want the poor to stay at home, hunger won’t let the poor do so.
According to him, the country “can only control the spread of the virus when the rich help the poor by providing enough food to stay at home.” He says for the poor, hunger is a virus that lives with them at home.
Going on, he states that while the rich are afraid of coronavirus, what instills more fear in the poor is hunger.
He advocates for social equilibrium to restore Nigeria and the world at large.
Recently, AY defended his wife Mabel from allegations of undergoing the knife for cosmetic surgery. In his post, he said that she is naturally blessed and does not need surgery to enhance herself.
According to him, those spreading the rumours are spreading fake news and need to stay out of his family’s personal affairs.
Prior to AY coming forward to defend her, Mabel had also gone on Instagram to shut down the rumors. In a post, she had said:
“Here is nothing that I have not heard, from she has done her body to fake body and surgery body bla bla bla. They keep singing it like a song don’t you guys get tired? You all are beginning to sound like a broken record 🤦♀️🤦♀,” she wrote.
“Seriously though, let’s stop the bitterness and appreciate God’s handwork😁The truth is, if in the future I choose to go under the knife, I will do it with pride.”
In 2019, the “30 Days In Atlanta” star also defended why celebrities show off their wealth on social media. 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.
