Peter Okoye, the Nigerian singer who is popularly known as Mr P, has said poverty is the only thing he is afraid of in life and not death.
Making the revelation in an interview with Nancy Isime, the Nigerian singer recalled how his family of 8 once lived together in a one-bedroom apartment that got bulldozed.
“I’m not afraid of death. The only thing I’m afraid of in this life is poverty. I’ve tasted it before,” the singer said as he went on explaining the reason for his position.
This stirred massive reactions online. @Okotie Ephraim reacted saying: “Poverty is one of the greatest enemy of a man. Please heaven father bless me and my loved ones.”
@John Lawanson: “If the majority of people are afraid of poverty, that is the fault of government because it was not like that even five hundred years ago.”
@Uduak Umah: “Poverty is a terrible disease. May God help us to be blessed n be a blessing in Jesus name Amen.”
