Veteran comedian, Atunyota Alleluya Akpobome, professionally known as AliBaba, has lambasted popular Nollywood actresses for their extravagant lifestyles.
In a video posted on Thursday, the comedian narrated how he met an undisclosed adulterous actress in Dubai.
“You are an actor/actress. How many movies have you done that gave you a million to buy a house? You that just joined the industry! The people who have been in the industry since have not bought.
“Let me go here, I’ll try not to mention names, I was in Dubai and while I was waiting, I saw this actress come in. I saw the protocol officers of a particular person, I greeted them and they greeted me too.
“One of them approached her and gave her a hotel key, she went upstairs. Two days later, I see her posting on Instagram with captions like “Lounging in Dubai”. Can you buy your ticket?
“The ones that do business and make money, we know them. Come here and be putting girls on the high jump. Girls would be thinking it’s all good. So when you see some of them run to Oba to get their own share, you’d complain.
“Even if you act in every movie in the industry and they pay you N5 million each, how many movies will you do in a year?
“We know the ones that use their mileage, their publicity, and do business. But that is different. Those ones do other businesses. They sell clothes, sell different things. They travel to and buy what they want to sell. They have businesses they run on the side. They sell hair, if you know how much these hairs cost, you will know they can afford it.
“But the ones that you know can not even act in an English movie, it has to kilosope (yoruba)movie. You will now tell me that you raised N125 million to build/buy a house in Lekki Phase 1”.
