Social Media was on Thursday, awash with reactions to what many describe as an attempt by alleged fraudster, Ismaila Mustapha, popularly referred to as Mompha, to rebrand his image.
The billionaire was charged with N33 billion fraud by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission which he allegedly committed while running an illicit Bureau De Change.
Mompha was on December 1, 2019, granted a N100 million bail.
The skit video which got people talking was released on Tuesday, featuring talented comedian and musician, Samuel Animashaun Perry, otherwise known as Brodashaggi; Officerwoos, and Mompha.
The conversation between Brodashaggi and Mompha borders on corruption, with Mompha notably saying that the Nigerian society is used to bringing people down after they record success.
Read some of the reactions below:
“If Mompha can rebrand and try to clean up his image and become an Instagram actor, anybody, irrespective of what they’ve done or haven’t done, can. 🤦🏾♂”
“Everyone has a price, you just have to find out what it is. Brodashaggi is rebranding the image of Mompha here. PR work!”
“Broda Shaggi’s latest comedy featuring Mompha wasn’t really about jokes and laughs, it was a way of rebranding Mompha’s dented image and changing the fraudster impression a lot of people have about Mompha. That was an excellent PR work paid for by Mompha himself.”
“Mompha is now an IG comedian probably cos the EFCC seized his passport. Baba for don travel back to Dubai
