2 Weeks After Criticism For Prostrating Over Car Gift, Olaiya Igwe Receives Plot of Land From MC Oluomo
Chairman of the Lagos State Park and Garages Management, Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo has given actor, Olaiya Igwe a plot of land, two weeks after gifting him a Benz as a birthday present.
Olaiya Igwe made this known in a recent Instagram live session with actress Kemi Afolabi. According to Olaiya, Mc Oluomo gave him the land after he was heavily criticsied for prostrating before the latter in appreciation after he was gifted the car.
Recall in a video posted by Oluomo’s son, an excited Olaiya Igwe prostrated to appreciate Oluomo for the gesture; an act that did not sit well with many as they criticised him for prostrating before someone they believe is younger than him.Justifying his actions, the movie star who spoke in Yoruba said he did not understand why anyone would be bothered about how he chooses to appreciate his benefactor, adding that his show of appreciation to people who support him will continue to pave way for more gifts.
On her part, Kemi Afolabi who is currently undergoing lupus treatment in the US noted that she has always benefitted from Mc Oluomo’s charity. She narrated how the socialite sent money to her associate for her treatment.Meanwhile, actress Jaiye Kuti was one of those who justified Olaiya’s choice to prostrate before MC Oluomo in appreciation after the latter surprised him with the car.
Defending Olaiya’s actions in a video posted on Instagram on Thursday, Jaiye Kuti said she would have done the same if she were in the actor’s shoes.
Speaking in the Yoruba language, she said:
“Be grateful for everything, value the act in which it has come, show gratitude not attitude….there is something we call, unexpected kindness and if God makes you receive unexpected kindness, the way you will show appreciation will make people think you are mad.
“If a young child buys me a house when I least expect it, I will roll on the floor too. I pray God blesses me with unexpected kindness”
