Ayo Makun popularly known as AY recently marked his birthday on August 19 and to celebrate him, one of his friends, Uncle Speed shared a throwback story of AY’s grass to grace and how a rich man hijacked his girlfriend from him because he didn’t have money at that time.

See the picture of AY and the former girlfriend accompanied with the inspiring story Uncle Speed shared.


“I know AY!
AY the consistently creative Comedian.
Lately, AY has been enjoying so much enlargement but before you envy his sweet story, let me tell you the sordid side of his story.

It’s the story of a down period in his Campus days. Even though he was industrious and was into Events and Pageants, things weren’t just happening for him.

It got so bad his Ex – the one he was supposed to marry – visited him on a cold Abraka Night.
The Mission? To break a News!

“AY,” she whispered, softly and tenderly, “you know I love you, but you are approaching life at SNAIL SPEED. I can’t go on like this.”

Then she hugged AY. Gave him one last peck. Refrained from the hug. Cat-walked into a waiting SUV. And zoooom… she went.

Apparently, a ‘big man’ had brought her to officially disengage with AY.
It was more agonizing because the same ‘big man’ had offered AY N200,000 so he could break up with his girlfriend. And AY had rejected the offer, “my love is not for sale”.

Now she’s gone. Just like that. Tears!

AY wept!
But the show of his bright future must go on. True, he might have been slow. He couldn’t approach life faster than he did to impress a lady. But he DID NOT STOP either.

Slowly, he relocated to Lagos but did not stop until he became Alibaba’s PA.

Slowly, he started Open Mic Challenge but did not stop until he discovered great comedy stars.

Slowly, he staged AY Live but did not stop until it became Africa’s Biggest.

Slowly, he rented apartments in Iponri, Aguda, and Ikorodu but he did not stop until he became a Landlord in Lekki.

Slowly, he produced most viewed Comedy Skits on YouTUBE but did not stop until he produced 30 Days In Atlanta – the highest grossing movie in Africa.

It’s not a HYPE. It’s a message!
It does not matter how SLOWLY you go; as long as YOU DO NOT STOP, You will get there.
