According to him, “There are times we produce video Comedy skits, preach good morals, speak against bad governance and discourage prostitution, which sometimes cost the sum of N200,000. 00, you won’t get much views and shares on social media. But if you produce another video with a pretty girl, with a very attractive breasts, showing her cleavage, if even sometimes I do not talk, I could get 10 million views or 55 billion shares.
