Seyi Law defends N10k awarded to UNN’s best graduating student, says it’s just a CSR and shouldn’t be compared to BBN prize money
Comedian, Seyi Law has defended the N10 awarded to the best graduating student from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka by explaining that it’s just a corporate social responsibility, which isn’t compulsory for the giving party and shouldn’t be compared to the BBN N25M prize money.
According to him, BBN is a business that brings returns and profit to the organisers while Prize giving is just a CSR for the giving party which is not compulsory by any means.
Explaining on his Instagram page, he wrote: ‘ I saw this picture and read a lot of comments on it and I had a good laugh.
‘We don’t seem to realise that BBN is a business that brings returns and profit to the organisers while Prize giving is just a CSR for the giving party which is not compulsory by any means.’
‘We talk about how Educational events get less sponsors and low reward prizes and we blame everybody but ourselves. May I ask when last we watched ” Who wants to be a millionaire”? Oh ho!’
‘If we are truly pained, let’s develop an Education based entertainment show that can guaranty millions of viewership, following and bring in good returns and watch companies eat out of the palms of our hands until then, we will keep crying for nothing.’
‘Abi, we think say the shareholders of the companies won’t want to count profits and improved dividends? Abegi, make I continue with my snoring jor.’
