Actor and producer, Yomi Fabiyi, has stated he is not worth $2.5m as reported by a blog.
The controversial film star, reacting via his Instagram page denied having such an amount in his name.
He stated he was born on May 1 and not May 31, noting he is over 40.
Fabiyi further called on the blog to adjust the information especially the net worth or take down the report entirely.
“1. Net worth here is fake 2. Age is wrong 3. Marital status is wrong. 4. State of Origin is correct,” he wrote.
“Anyways, the focal point here is the net worth. Please, every actions and decisions taken on our behalf online have adverse effect I have never opened fake account in my life nor live a fake life. I travel with my truth, hardwork and guts only.
“I am no much fan of excessive or over-blown packaging. 2.5million dollars, kuku kee me. I am not hungry and I’m not full either. Please oh whoever put these kind of info up should take it down or edit net worth as ‘Moderate’.
“Again, I was born 1st of May and not 31st May. Moreso, I am over 40years. Most importantly, help adjust the dollar net worth asap. Kobo no dey ground oh. And must you use dollars for the packaging? Thank you.”
His reaction is coming a few days after two movie stars Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel were kidnapped on their way back from a movie location in Enugu with their abductors demanding $100,000 ransom.
Some of their colleagues aghast at the outrageous sum demanded said it was a direct result of the way kidnappers viewed actors based on the lavish lifestyles, a ‘farcade’ being exhibited by a good number of them on social media.
Lizzy Gold had also denied claims that she wasn’t as affluent as the information on Wikipedia suggests about her.
Tagging online publications as ‘exaggerations,’ the film star urged individuals to stop accepting them.
