Aisha who expressed herself in pidgin English said, “Naija people we don suffer, so na celebrity go tell us say we go suffer.”

She then asked rhetorically, “do you think you are better than any of us?” She goes ahead to advise Ogulu to not allow those numbers deceive him.

In her words, “first of all don’t let those numbers deceive you, divide the numbers by 360 or 490, then you will humble yourself.” Those who have real money don’t talk, it is the money that talk, many have arrived before you.”

Aisha also made Burnaboy to understand that Funke Akindele’s series, titled ‘Jenifa’ enjoys supports from Nigerians, the reason she is successful.

You get borehole for house, no running water, na poverty be that”, Aisha added.
