Nigerian comedian, Mark Angel, known for his comedy skits which features celebrity kid comedienne Emmanuella, in an interview with Naij, disclosed that a company once offered to buy their Facebook page for $400,000.
According to Mark Angel, the money when converted to Naira was worth over N100 million as at the time he got the offer. However, a quick conversion showed that the money was worth N144,000,000.
Mark Angel said he declined the offer because it’s not all about money adding that “money cannot buy what we do”.
He further stressed that “you can sell it and start again but there are people who can only get a laugh through that channel and by selling it, you will deny them that chance”.
“Recently, a company wanted to buy out our Facebook page. I thought it as a scam but this company is well known and they offered us $400,000 when I converted it to Naira, it was more than N100million (N144m). My first thought was ‘guys lets sell it.’
“But we can’t sell it because it’s not all about money. Money cannot buy what we do. If you think about it, you can sell it and start again but there are people who can only get a laugh through that channel and by selling it, you will deny them that chance,” Mark Angel said.
