Angela has been on Zubby's neck since Junior Pope's death, and this was another opportunity for her to give him more knocks. She pointed out that Zubby should have presented his gift secretly without mounting a camera to capture the moment.

The actress recalled when she used to secretly give the actor money during his upcoming days without letting people around her know.

Angela further questioned him to determine whether he was richer than other dignitaries present at the solemn occasion and tagged him as a 'local boy' who lacked common sense.

"Zubby if you really wanted to give money to Junior Pope's family. You for give them quietly. The way I dey take dey give you that year codedly, nobody go know. You carry camera plant, make dem dey video you dey give bundle of money to the JP family. We all know you with propaganda. Just get out abeg.
