Nollywood star Chinedu Ikedieze, also known as Aki, has made a plea to individuals who frequently reach out to him online, asking them to refrain from requesting money.
In a video shared on his Instagram page on Monday, the popular comedian expressed his frustration with the numerous messages he receives, wherein people ask for both substantial and trivial amounts of money.
He disclosed that one particularly audacious individual had solicited $35,000 from him, while another had requested $12,000 to start a business. Recognizing the dire state of the nation’s economy, Chinedu emphasized that he cannot afford to fulfill these demands as it would jeopardize his own financial stability.
Chinedu Ikedieze urged the public to understand his situation and desist from making money requests, given the challenging economic circumstances facing the country.
He said,” Guys I’m not happy this thing is getting out of hand, how can you people turn my DM to a bank. If I open my dm every time is bros please, its too much .
“The way you guys are asking us for money is like we dont have responsibility, if I start to share the money like that, it will finish.
“Anytime I open my message is either I see bros I need 40 thousand, bros my mother is sick. Imagine someone was begging me for $35,000 that is like 27million another one was asking me for 12 thousand dollars that he wants to open a shop.”
