Speaking at a recent event, the seasoned thespian addressed parents directly, imploring them to take a more proactive approach in monitoring their children's financial activities.

Kanayo O Kanayo highlighted a concerning trend of youth involvement in illicit activities and corruption, expressing dismay that some parents seem oblivious to this issue and readily accept lavish gifts from their children without questioning their legitimacy.

He stressed the importance of parental vigilance in combating social ills and unhealthy practices among the youth.

"Parents!!!! Parents!!!!! Parents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ask questions before you accept gifts or die young. This is why many parents are dying young. ORIKO," he emphasized.


The actor illustrated scenarios where parents overlook the extravagance of gifts from their children, such as a 20-year-old daughter owning a phone worth N1.5 million yet offering only N100,000 to her parents without any inquiry into the source of her wealth.

Similarly, he warned against turning a blind eye when a non-working son arrives home with significant sums of money or a car.
