Today the only thing some ladies want is money; ‘if he’s not rich, no car, no big house I can’t date or marry him o’. What you should be interested in is how a man can build a good life and sustain it on the long run, and not how he was able to make fast money to show off.
You’re not a celebrity, your man is not a celebrity but you want to keep up with the celebs at all cost as if you came into the world to compete. Lol! 90% of the celebrities you see were born into poverty and they worked to get to where they are, which you are admiring. Focus on yourself and build!
Below is the story of how Comedian AY’s girlfriend dumped him back then for a “rich man”:
AY today is one of the richest Nigerian comedians and he is happily married with a kid.
He recently marked his birthday and to celebrate him, one of his friends, Uncle Speed, shared this inspiring story of his humble beginning.
It’s a throwback story of how the versatile stand up comic c*m actor, rose from nothing in his University to become one of the most famous faces in the Entertainment scene.
I know AY!
AY the consistently creative Comedian.
Lately, AY has been enjoying so much enlargement but before you envy his sweet story, let me tell you the sordid side of his story.
It’s the story of a down period in his Campus days. Even though he was industrious and was into Events and Pageants, things weren’t just happening for him.
It got so bad his Ex – the one he was supposed to marry – visited him on a cold Abraka Night.
The Mission? To break a News!
“AY,” she whispered, softly and tenderly, “you know I love you, but you are approaching life at SNAIL SPEED. I can’t go on like this.”
Then she hugged AY. Gave him one last peck. Refrained from the hug. Cat-walked into a waiting SUV. And zoooom… she went.
Apparently, a ‘big man’ had brought her to officially disengage with AY.
It was more agonizing because the same ‘big man’ had offered AY N200,000 so he could break up with his girlfriend. And AY had rejected the offer, “my love is not for sale”.
Now she’s gone. Just like that. Tears!
But the show of his bright future must go on. True, he might have been slow. He couldn’t approach life faster than he did to impress a lady. But he DID NOT STOP either.
Slowly, he relocated to Lagos but did not stop until he became Alibaba’s PA.
Slowly, he started Open Mic Challenge but did not stop until he discovered great comedy stars.
Slowly, he staged AY Live but did not stop until it became Africa’s Biggest.
Slowly, he rented apartments in Iponri, Aguda, and Ikorodu but he did not stop until he became a Landlord in Lekki.
Slowly, he produced most viewed Comedy Skits on YouTUBE but did not stop until he produced 30 Days In Atlanta – the highest grossing movie in Africa.
It’s not a HYPE. It’s a message!
It does not matter how SLOWLY you go; as long as YOU DO NOT STOP, You will get there.
