Recently, rumours went viral that she has gone broke as she has allegedly closed down her shop, sold off her cars and is now selling local gin popularly called paraga. Reacting to the story when Saturday Punch called her on the phone earlier in the week, the actress said:
“I have three solid cars. I drive an Envogue, a Chrysler and an Xterra. I am even about buying the fourth car. How would anybody think I am broke? I am almost tempted to curse all those peddling this rumour about me. They are just crazy people.
I don’t have a paraga shop. I don’t know where they got the story from. Of all the actresses that have clothing business, just three dresses from my shop would just be equal to the amount they spent on their shops. My shop is worth well over N80m. Can any paraga seller afford the things I wear? I don’t want to brag but people should respect themselves.
I think an enemy of progress is spreading this news. Anybody who doesn’t like me should go and hug a transformer. I just shot a soap recently; I also released a video. If I am broke, would I be spending millions on these projects?
I have never borrowed money from anybody. I am living large, I live at Ikoyi. I was the first Yoruba actress to have lived at Lekki Phase One (Lagos). I am the first to have a shop. On top of it all, I am a very pretty girl, I can never be poor. Even without me working, I can never be poor. I can only be broke if there is no God,” she said.
