“I trek and jump buses everywhere” – Veteran actress, Iya Gbonkan laments as she begs Nigerians to buy her a car
Margaret Bandele Olayinka, a Nigerian veteran actress popularly known as Iya Gbonkan, has appealed to well-meaning Nigerians to buy a car for her.
The 64-year-old Nollywood actress in a video that’s currently making the rounds, lamented not owning a car despite spending over a decade in the Nigerian movie industry.
She mentioned that despite her age and experience, she still relies on walking and public transportation to get around from one place to another.
Iya Gbonkan urged Nigerians, particularly her fans, to honor her with a car while she is still alive, instead of waiting to celebrate her or offer grand gestures when she dies.
“I have been acting for decades, yet I don’t have a car. I rely on buses every day. If I were to die now, you would slaughter a cow. Celebrate me now while I am alive. I need a car from my fans,” she said in part.
