In a video posted on his Instagram page, Daddy Showkey poured showered encomiums on Okonkwo. He did the video in the popular Nigerian Pidgin English parlance, which loosely translated means “Emoney has killed me! My account has burst. He sent N500,000 for me to enjoy. If you are good, people will like you!”
