Zubby Michael, Nigerian actor and movie producer, says he is the biggest and richest actor in Africa at the moment.
The actor spoke in a recent interview with Broadway Television which spanned his acting career as well as criticisms of him on the social media.
Buttressing his claim, Michael recalled being paid the sum of N102 million for his last acting gig. He added that he also has three houses across Lagos, Asaba and Anambra.
“To God be the glory, I don’t think anyone is bigger than me for now. Zubby is the biggest actor in Africa right now,” he said.
“For now, I’m the richest actor because if you see the money I get, I’m not saying that for people to clap for me. The last time I checked my book, I realised that I have made N102 million from artiste fee lately, not in all my career.
“That means I have to share N10.2 million for people, because that is my way of paying tithe. I have three houses, one in Lagos, another in Asaba and the other in Anambra. Three buildings for now and more coming.”
The actor also dismissed allegations of money laundering against him in some quarters, adding that those peddling such are unhappy with his progress.
“People online forget to tell themselves the truth because online is not real, it is just like a market square. I don’t lauder money, my only source of income is acting and production,” he added.
“Forget people that are talking nonsense, I won’t go into laundering money or such thing because I’m not desperate when it comes to money. I love money but I don’t worship money.”
He revealed that he is ready for a serious relationship, adding that he stayed away from such because of its likely effect on his career.
“I’m scared of women, I have been working since but now I want to give it a chance. They can destroy this thing, forget that we are here,” he said.
“Had it been I had a girlfriend, I may not have been this successful, because if you disturb me mentally, it will affect my work. If we have a problem, I may be on a movie set and start thinking about her.
“It will affect me, so as a young man, it is not that women are bad, they are beautiful but there is time for everything.”
