“Why I dress, disguise as mad Man to bless people on the streets”
A Nigerian skit maker, Sunday Joshua Martins, often known as De General, has explained why he chose to dress himself as a lunatic in order to bless people on the street.
In some of his new Instagram videos, the funny skit maker dresses up as a madman begging for alms from bystanders while being filmed from afar. He reveals himself as soon as a stranger offers to assist him, and anyone with a benevolent motive is surprised with a price of up to N100,000.
While revealing the reason behind this gesture, he said “First of all I am a giver, I love helping people a lot. I am kind and eighty percent of the people that watch my skits are those that made me who I am and they don’t even have what I have so I was looking for a way to give back to the street instead of going to one church or the other to start.”
Still speaking, he said, “So, I said how do I give back to the street? How do I give it to people that are worth this thing? And the whole concept came to my head that I should just go around pretending to be a poor homeless man to see genuine good people that can reward me with anything they have, even if they did not give me money, maybe their kind words or the way they address me then I can reward them and tell them by so doing if other persons get to watch it they’ll be wowed and know that it pays to be good and one way or the other I’m affecting their lives because they will see themselves doing good for no reason.”
In his application, De General claimed his purpose is to affect the world positively because he feels that if everybody is decent, there won’t be so much problem. He also said he hopes to start giving N1 million after starting with N50,000.
