The no-nonsense actor has fired back at his critics.

Here are his words:

“The Gardner?
I would have love to add that sha o As long as it pays the Bills Menh! And it makes my dependents Happy.

*** Choose What You Fight… In 2018 *** I once met a very successful business man and I asked him to share his secret with me.

He smiled and said to me… I started succeeding when I started leaving small fights for small fighters.

I stopped fighting those who gossiped about me… I stopped fighting over unnecessary issues with my spouse…

I stopped fighting for attention… I stopped fighting to meet up with public expectation… I left such fights for those who have nothing else to fight… “

And I started fighting for my vision, my dreams, my ideas and my destiny. Then I started winning big”.

That was the day I gave up on small fights. Some fights are not worth your time.

Fight to make your visions and dreams come alive! Fight the good fight of faith! Fight for your destiny not for your ego!

Entrepreneurs shouldn’t have time for unnecessary fights!

Visionaries don’t cluster their mind with nonsense bickering!

Always ask, what is this fight adding to my destiny, my goal, my progress? Choose what you fight…”

Epic reply!!!!

    What is wrong with being a gardener? Nigerians will badmouth the jobs done by people in diaspora but will not mind spendin the money with them. Soon you will complain about the stinginess of people residing abroad.

    It’s our useless egos and big man mentality destroying Nigeria and stagnating our progress. As the saying goes ‘there is dignity in labor “. Even the Bible says – work with your own hands. What is wrong with working as a gardener or security guard, or any job at all, as long as it puts food on his table and pays his bills? Isn’t it better to work than stealing and begging? For your information, cyber crime and yahoo yahoo is stealing. A nation that loves imported goods but produce nothing will die in poverty. Do you think the successful billionaires you admire today started rich on golden platters? Go read the stories of Alhaj Rasak Okoya or Richard Branson as examples. Until Nigerians adopt a different mindset towards hard work and respect for those brave enough to do honest work to earn their living, our country will continue going down and labeled a shithole.

    What do you guys expect? you want this guy to start working at White House. This guy needs to start from somewhere for cry out loud. As I have said earlier, there is no short cut in the US. If you have a goal you have to work towards achieving that goal. That is what makes different between United State and our Shithole Country.

    In a Shithole Country, you don’t have to work yet, you can count Millions of Naira in as much you know your ways. In a Shithole Country you don’t have to go to school yet you can have your PHD’s. We are spending our money to buy Okada bike thereby providing more jobs for China citizens. We lack foresight to the extent that we always think we can buy anything with our money. It is damn pitiable that this Nation is going down the drain because our youths are not focusing in the right channel by making this nation a productive one.
