In what appeared to be a morning motivation message addressed to her fans, Jombo said there’s no point having some kind of friends who only reach out when it’s time for enjoyment.
According to the screen-diva, if a friend is not helping one make money, such a friend should be avoided by all means.
“The friend that you are not making money with… is that one a friend? P.S sorry time zone less at the moment but this is morning motivation for us all!!!,” she wrote.
