In what instances has money corrupted your mind?
“It hit me because that is not why I was doing art and the more the money the less you enjoy it because you try to fit it into your art and what it most likely does is that it takes away the artistic value and humour,” the comedian opened up.

Speaking in a candid interview over the weekend, Flaqo who does comedy on family set up that have gone viral of his artistic imitation said that, at his peak, he landed so many endorsements which he also appreciated for having benefited people many of whom he didn’t know with Jobs.
