- The musician revealed that the businessman's arrest was orchestrated by another Igbo man
Singer Tony Oneweek has reacted to the arrest of popular music business mogul and chairman of Five Star Group, Emeka Okonkwo, popularly known as E-Money.
According to him, when E-money and his elder brother, Kcee were in the streets, nobody thought of investigating them.
It was earlier reported that six police escorts were withdrawn from the flamboyant business mogul. E-money was also investigated for his show of wealth on social media.
The IGP reportedly directed the Lagos Police Command to look into E-Money’s lifestyle and how he earns a living, following accusations that he reduced police escorts to carry out domestic errands.

Reacting to that, singer Oneweek shared a throwback photo of E-money and Kcee, noting that the government is investigating the businessman because he has money and he's influential.
The musician further explained that nobody investigates poverty.
"I am happy that E-Money has the "required" Goodwill that set him free (within a few hours) from this aborted embarrassment. Emeka is a good man. He is different, benevolent, and very humble. Some Igbos do not love themselves shaa. Sad to hear that E-Money's travail was ignited by a fellow Igbo man. Na waa," he wrote on his Facebook page.
In other news, Legit.ng earlier reported that E-Money paid for 2.5km road construction in his village.
According to Africa Facts Zone, the project’s location is in his village, Uli, in the state. In the video shared by the same handle, E-Money, whose real name is Emeka Okonkwo, could be seen gesticulating towards the road as he walked with another person.
A man in a suit who looked like his bodyguard was also nearby as the construction workers paved the road.
