Anonymous said; Mr Alli, you were supposed to have saved for the rainy day like everyone else. Abi dem no pay you after you won all those your “world tittle” fights? Your own belts are different from those held by Mohammed Ali, Evander Holyfield, Mike Tyson, etc who were paid handsomely after each successful bouts? Did you spend your own winnings on champagne and the high~life, and if yes, why is your being ass~broke any one’s problem but yours? I don’t get it whenever I see people make this ridiculous claim they are not being taken care of in their twilight years after doing this or that for Nigeria.
They gave you a national honour, OON, didn’t they? Perhaps one day, Davido or Tu-Face will be bothering us to take care of them because their music put Nigeran on the world map or spotlight. Perhaps someday, footballers like Kanu Nwankwo, Odegbami, Jay Jay Okocha, etc will wake up and start to whine that Nigeria owes them a lifetime pension or something equally ridiculous, all because they had at some time represented the country. If you failed to invest your earnings well in your youth, you are destined for a painful twilight years.

You are beginning to be rather annoying with your constant shenanigans. Abeg , go back to your village and be a farmer, if you can no longer afford your rents in Lagos. Your drama don too much.
