Online comedian, Godswill Enweroghene, aka Laughpills has debunked rumour that he got money to build his newly-built house from fraud and ill-gotten wealth.
The community boys then resold the land to someone else. I had to fight hard to regain the land. I am glad that I now have my own house. The joy I feel cannot be explained. I built the house from scratch. People are allowed to say whatever they like due to what’s going on in the country.
However, it is very wrong of them to have such an impression of me. It is very bad that many people think most skit makers are into Internet fraud. Some people even claimed that I must have been laundering money for politicians or doing other illegal things.
People only saw the beautiful edifice that was posted by acquaintances to congratulate me, they were not there when I was buying cement and taking them to the site. There were times I would go to the site to spend just N100,000 on the building and go back home with the hope that things would get better. Being a young man with prospects, I had to think deep because I am married and I have a child, yet I didn’t have a house.”
