According to him, many actresses like Regina Chukwu, Tope Solaja and comedians like AY, Mr Jollof, Ushbebe have become professional beggars including openly transgender man, Bobrisky.
Going further, he stated that the act of begging has become a culture so much that one can succeed in the entertainment industry without begging.
He wrote: "Begging...This is now a lucrative form of business and social media is the current headquarters...Everyone is guilty of this one way or the other,even the rich and famous are not exempted from this list. E.g. my friend Mr jollof who successfully took his begging skills online and begged for a car, in which he has since gathered millions toward it..IG big girls and slay queens, some hold PHDs in sliding into DMs begging skills..Sending of Acct details is almost on the same Level with saying hello."

"Let’s not forget our actors/actresses, In fact to become successful in Nollywood, u must have a Masters in Begging. Tope Solaja, Regina Chukwu, Amarachi Igwe, just to mention a few, can testify to how begging has helped dem in their career. Bobo toh Risky is also a beggar, her marketing strategy is one of a kind and should be a case study, the more she goes viral, the more she is talked about, the more donations she gets...Comedians, their own form of begging is for u to attend their shows, E.g “UsheBeBe almost died at JowiZaza’ home when he came to beg..to show how serious he was, he entered the pool and almost drowned,"
