Popular Nigerian comedian, AY real name Ayo Makun has come out to state reasons why entertainers need to show off their wealth. The comedian made this known on photo-sharing platform, Instagram
The comedian’s Instagram post came as a reply to a follower who had mocked him for showing off on the photo-sharing site. While the follower held that Dangote, Bill Gates or Jeff Bezo won’t show off their properties on any social media platform, AY stated that ‘it’s because they are not in Show Business’.
The comedian further stated that one of the motives of going into Show Business is for people to talk about a personality and also know who he or she is 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?
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 “
