Greatest Legends Never Show Off Material Things – IK Ogbonna
Nollywood actor, Ik Ogbonna says he wouldn’t show off his treasures because it’s not a great man like.
Ogbonna who has been rumoured to currently faces marriage challenges told CityBuzz Extra that ”great legends’ don’t show off material things.
The entertainment industry is used to celebrities flaunting their wealth and material possessions on social media platforms, but for Ogbonna, it is not an act he would like to imbibe.
“I don’t flaunt my material belongings because I feel that if I do, it means I am giving that brand free publicity. If I flaunt the expensive brands I wear, it means I am giving free publicity to a brand that didn’t pay me for that; after I paid so much money to acquire the item.
“Material things can diminish at any time, it is not what I stand for; I stand for impacting people’s lives’ positively. I do this through some of the messages I post on my social media platforms. The greatest legends in life never showed off material things, like Fela Kuti, Nelson Mandela and Michael Jackson; they were busy thinking of how to change the world
“In my little way, I try to show people how to love and treat their family and be better people. I might not be right all the time with the things I express, but people can still learn from them,” he added.
