According to the actress, her parents were living in a dilapidated
house with leaking roofs – it was such a horrific ordeal that her pops
considered selling a part of his compound to seal the roofs.
It was at that point the thought of building a new house for her folks crossed her mind, she says:
“People have always refer to me as “mgbeke” (local girl) that I dont know fashion or carry designer bags/shoes/clothes
That I don’t wear expensive hair. Well my darlings I do know and
want to wear those things but I have been saving for this building right
I can’t remember d last time my family travelled for Xmas because
their is no house to stay. My mother falls sick whenever she goes for
August meeting and comes back.
My father wanted to sell half of our compound to fix d leaking
roof, buy ceiling and also patch the broken wall but I told him No. (
PAPA I WILL BUILD HOUSE FOR YOU) after saving for sometime, I wanted to
use the money to buy myself another car (A bigger car) but I said to
myself, what’s d need for d car when we don’t have roof over our head in
d village moreover the car I have is still in good condition and serves
me well, I can always buy another one later.
Today am grateful to Almight God that it came to pass. My parents
are d happiest ppl on earth. 4 masters bedroom, extra 2 toilets,
kitchen, dinning and palour. God is the Greatest.”
