May 28, 2016 – Joshua Iginla: I Gave SUVs To Nollywood Stars Battling Poverty Because Piracy Is Killing Them
Abuja based Pastor who gave out several SUVs to popular Nollywood stars on his birthday few days ago told NAN that he did the good deed because many Nollywood celebrities are poor.
Hear what Iginla told NAN in Abuja yesterday:
“I have 782 widows and orphans to cater for.”
“It doesn’t matter to me if I trek home as I have given even the car that I personally drive. I can only drive one car and live in one house at a time.
This understanding is what has taught me that when I die, others will inherit my assets. The beauty of life is not in its duration, but in its donation. I have not seen some of the beneficiaries before in my life or spoken to them.
I’m seeing many of them for the first time today. I am seeing Jide Kosoko for the first time,” he said. Iginla gave cars to the Nollywood actors because “many of them were poor, but people erroneously think they were rich.” He believes the fruits of the Nollywood artistes were reaped by pirates and challenged government to do something to arrest it.
“The Nollywood actors and actresses are our ambassadors; they have projected the image of this country positively”.
