Shan George, a Nigerian actress-cum film producer, says she sometimes doesn’t have as little as N200 note on her, adding that it’s not a crime not to have money.
The 50-year-old director took to her Instagram page on Wednesday to address individuals who make financial commitments at the expense of others but get offended when they don’t come through.
“If you promise someone money based on another person’s pocket, then you start hating because the person isn’t buoyant at that time to help you fulfill ur promises, you’re on your own,” she wrote.
“Hell, there are times I don’t even have N200 on me. There’s a nuclear family on my neck and I’m not hating on anyone for not helping.
“Let’s make promises within our reach, to avoid stories that touch. It’s not a crime not to have. The guilty will start thinking it’s them I’m writing about now.”

George had made headlines after Ben Ayade, the governor of Cross River state, appointed her the chairman of Callywood, the state’s faction of the Nigerian movie industry.
The veteran actress, who doubles as a movie director, had undergone a surgery to treat a spine disease in August 2019, months after her younger sister had died in an accident.
