Living a simple life really pays, it makes you gain and sometimes it might be complicated. That it’s good to be good is an ancient word of wisdom and should be preached to those who wish to become someone in life.
Nollywood actor, Mike Ezuronye’s kind heart displayed in the flight got him three plots of land in the heart of central Abuja.
Actor Mike Ezuronye told a very touching story about an incident that happened between him and an elderly woman on board a flight from Lagos to Abuja.
Hear him, “There was this day I was travelling to Abuja to shoot a movie and I got into the aircraft and met this woman, she was older than my mother. As I made to put my bag in the overhead compartment, I greeted her but she didn’t answer me. I just ignored her and sat down.
On arrival in Abuja, the woman was struggling to get her luggage from the compartment and I just stretched my hand and helped her to get it.
She asked for it without a thank you but I refused to give it to her, offering to help her take it down. On getting out of the aircraft, she again requested for her luggage but I said, madam I’ll take it to the arrival hall for you and she looked at me with bewilderment.
When we got to the arrival hall I turned to the woman and handed her luggage to her and as I made to leave, she called me by my name. I was surprised and retorted, so madam you even know my name. But why did you not answer me when I greeted you on board the aircraft. She then said,
Mike, I’ve come across a lot of your Nollywood mates and they seem to be pigheaded so that is why I always want to distant myself from them.” I just smiled and told her I’m not like that.
She asked where I was going and I felt she wanted me to ride with her into town. I told her I was in Abuja to shoot a movie. I then turned to leave but some four or five policemen who must have come to pick her told me to wait.
I said what’s my own, I’ve helped her to this place and I want to go. They however insisted that I should wait. I didn’t really know who the woman was but the long and short of it all was that she ended up giving me three plots of land in Abuja.”
