Veteran actor, Sylvester Madu has advised people make money legally because those materials things they acquire illegally will eventually lose value.
Citing an example of popular phone brand, Blackberry, the Nollywood star recounted how some people stole, killed, fornicated and lost their virginity just because they wanted to own the phone.
According to him, he borrowed money to buy a Blackberry Passport when it was in vogue but now, the phone is lying fallow in his house. He noted that time places value on everything in life and those trending things will eventually become old-fashioned.
In the post he shared on his Instagram page, Sylvester threw a subtle shade at embattled Nigerian socialite, Hushpuppi, who used to flaunt his luxurious possessions on social media but is currently in jail for internet fraud.

“I Love time. You know why? Because time places a value on everything you have or do, whether it is good or bad, right or wrong.
Let me begin with the Almighty…. BLACKBERRY PASSPORT….
You and I thought it was the best of phones, such that no other can be better. Lots of relationships and even marriages broke because of this phone.
I had to borrow money to buy it just to belong
But just yesterday I saw it lying helplessly and uselessly in one if my wardrobe untouched and unused for years..
What am I trying to say….those things you value so much and even dying for, is it really worth it? What will be the value in 5 or 10 years time?
Some stole, killed and fornicated and even lost their virginity just to have a BLACKBERRY phone. You can imagine how it trended so much a movie was named after it….BlackBerry Babes…..Remember ..Pinging girls…so who is using the word PING now.? All this were the language of blackberry phone users and now no one will even buy it for free…yes for free.
Now some have stolen to buy the lates Rolls Royce and end up in an American cage. Even their friends are denying them and have refuse to accept free visa to America. What a life
That latest thing you have now will soon be the oldest thing. Yes, time says so.
In 1999 a friend of mine once said and I quote… “you see this latest cars people are driving now, it will be the old model of my cars” ….end of quote. I pondered over those words for many years until time told me what it meant.
Whatever you do today keep your hands clean… if it’s not for jesus, it’s not worth dying for.”
