Comedian and actor, Ayo Makun popularly known as A.Y took to his Instagram in reply to a user @farukjude who criticized him for living a lavish lifestyle following a video of his luxurious mansion that went viral on social media.
While the user @farukjude compared the comedian to other Billionaires around the world like Dangote, Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos, who wouldn’t show off their properties as he does on social media which appeared as a subtle shade, A.Y abruptly responded to the comment stating the reason for his constant show off.
In his reply, A.Y noted that the luxurious show-off of his properties and expensive lifestyle is as a result of his show business that provides awareness for him to the public. He maintained that someone else might see his video and remember to book him for a show which is why many people go into show business because they want the world to know them and what they can do.
THE REASON THEM DANGOTE WILL NOT DO IT… First things first, you must always remember that @aycomedian is in the business of entertainment. More so, entertainment on the other hand is any activity which provides a diversion or permits people to amuse themselves in their leisure time, and may also provide fun, enjoyment, and laughter. In other words i can create my own entertainment by spontaneously inventing ideas; or participate actively in any activity you may find entertaining.
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?
We are all here to HUSTLE. Always speak for yourself and leave them Dangote out of it. Even DJ Cuppy don dey introduce Otedola enter showbiz by flying to Italy to buy icecream. Lol.
Above all i want to be an inspiration to every young person that wants to get into show business. Hard work, perseverance, and discipline: all the things you need when want to be an Ay.. May God make you BIGGER #positivethinking #nobadvibes#MerryMen2#decembercinematakeover
