The actor pointed out that people have turned him into a commercial bank, adding that he would have nothing left if he gave out money to everyone who came to his DM to ask him for money.

‘’This is getting out of hand. How can you people turn my DM to the Bank of Industry? If I open my DM is always ‘’Oga please, please, please’ Jesus! It is too much. The way you guys beg it is like we do not have responsibilities. If I start to share the money like that it will finish

He urged people to consider that celebrities also have responsibilities before they slide into their DMs to beg for financial assistance.
