Fuji star, Alao Malaika, who has been in the industry for over three decades, in an interview with Sunday Scoop disclosed that his Lekki home came through hardwork and not doing terrible things.
Malaika who expressed surprise that people doubt that he can build a N200m home, said if he was into terrible things, people should have known by now.
“I have been in the music industry for over three decades. I started my music career when I was 10-year-old before I later formed my band. If someone has been doing something from such a young age and he does it well, why wouldn’t he be able to build such a house for himself? If I’m into terrible things, people would have known by now. As a matter of fact, I have achieved a lot but I don’t like bragging about things I do or have. The Lekki home, which generated a lot of reactions, is not my first achievement in life” he said.
The Fuji act who recently celebrated his 45th birthday in different countries, stated that he is not the type who gets disturbed about comments on social media, and further gave his reason for not disclosing the worth of his house. According to Malaika, being criticized or questioned is the price to pay for stardom.
“I never gave anyone the figure but my engineer later told me that some journalists called him and he told them. I told him I didn’t like it and I warned him to always inform me whenever he wanted to answer questions about me.”
“Being criticised or questioned is the price we pay for stardom. Fame comes with a lot of negative and positive things. If you are getting positive results and you don’t expect any negativity, it means you are not thankful to God” he said.
