According to report, Jaiye Kuti, in a viral Instagram video, criticised the growing habit of seasoned Yoruba actors requesting automobile presents and financial help online.

She stated that the older colleagues should accept responsibility for their current situation as a result of reckless financial decisions they may have made while still working in the company. She blamed their predicament on their failure to plan for the future.

In the video, she warns them, saying, “All the actors coming to beg online should stop calling us bad names.” Because this employment does not provide a pension, you must plan for the future. “I’m already planning for the future.”

In response, Fabiyi noted in an Instagram post that the majority of veterans seeking assistance have previously been exploited, and the latest trend should not concern anyone.

“If anyone needs help and comes public with his or her brand, name, and face only, I don’t see why it should bother anyone,” he added. If you can’t find a way to compensate all of these soldiers for their losses due to piracy and capitalist exploitation, then let them breathe. We, the performers of the new millennium, are a little lucky, but not by much. People’s decisions, choices, and actions must be respected. Every guy for himself. Comparison proves nothing.

“Regardless of how uncomfortable or dissatisfied you are with someone else’s decisions or actions, if it is not against the law and falls within the person’s rights, it is an outright act of arrogance, a crime, and the grandeur of delusion to attempt to rubbish such person.” Caveat! I despise pretence, arrogance, and phoney lives.”
