Some ladies go for expensive handbags, jewellery and clothes while others go for latest iPhones, expensive hairdo like Brazilian hair and ride on expensive cars around, but Chizzy Alichi make sure she fulfils a dream so dear to her heart and a concern to her parent, she sacrificed her comfort to make it happen.
Chizzy is a Nollywood actress who has been tagged a local girl at different times and occasions because she wasn’t dressing the way her colleagues were. Unknown to many, she was saving her widow’s mite to build her parents a house!
She recently to the social media and wrote:
“People have always referred to me as “mgbeke” (local girl) that I don’t know fashion or carry designer bags/shoes/clothes
That I don’t wear expensive hair. Well, my darlings I do know and want to wear those things but I have been saving for this building right here. I can’t remember the last time my family travelled for Xmas because there is no house to stay. My mother falls sick whenever she goes for August meeting and comes back. My father wanted to sell half of our compound to fix d leaking roof, buy ceiling and also patch the broken wall but I told him No. ( PAPA I WILL BUILD HOUSE FOR YOU) after saving for sometime, I wanted to use the money to buy myself another car (A bigger car) but I said to myself, what’s d need for d car when we don’t have roof over our head in d village moreover the car I have is still in good condition and serves me well, I can always buy another one later. Today am grateful to Almighty God that it came to pass. My parents are d happiest ppl on earth. 4 masters bedroom, extra 2 toilets, kitchen, dining and parlour. God is the Greatest.”
