The actor in a Facebook post said;


“When you fail to succeed, it is not just your enemies who will laugh at you, even your friends will laugh at you. Your own family will laugh at you. You’ll get disrespected even by your siblings. Friends and family members may not wish you bad, but they’ll laugh at and mock you with subtle digs, if you’re not making progress in life.”

They’ll make degrading statements and call you demeaning names, that if you have sense, you’ll know that it’s because you’re not making progress in life or don’t have money. Don’t be ignorant of these things, because they are the things that’ll spur you on to success.”

Kenneth Okonkwo therefore encouraged his followers to succeed because they were not born to fail, and they have no choice than to succeed because failure is an orphan and success has many relatives.
