Nollywood A-List actor, IK Ogbonna in a message he dropped on Instagram, announced that he won’t be wearing Gucci and similar big brands anymore.
According to IK Ogbonna, who wore those brands before now because he was influenced by wrong standards. However he went further to disclose that this year, he’s proving no point to anybody but himself.
Here’s what he wrote;
This is following the hysteria sparked by Nigerian Instagram big boy, Hushpuppi in his gucci battle with top celebrities last year.
Recall that in 2017, social media was set ablaze by Ray Hushpuppi who is well-known for his lavish lifestyle and love for Gucci, when caught drowning in a troll which he started and which got him a reward in his own coin when the shadded ‘King of the East’ Phyno.
The Malaysian-based flamboyant boy had thrown the first punch when he tried to humiliate Phyno and Iceprince by saying the duo are won’t of wearing fake Patek wristwatches and hence, they should stop complaining when people pirate their music.
Specifically, Hushpuppi had taken to his Snapchat to attack Phyno and Ice Prince saying;
“Ice Prince Zamani Phyno Patek Philippe! If you don’t want people to patronize pirated copy of your work, don’t patronize pirated copy of other’s work. #Hypocrites.”
However, the equally indigenous rapper, Phyno, who replied Hushpuppi said:
“We not on d same level mate.. Ulive and die for Gucci… I will live and die for my pple… The hunger is different here man.
