Popular comedienne, Emanuella Samuel has said the early Christmas house gift to her mother is also for her father.
The comedienne, famous for her role in the Mark Angel comedy series over the weekend posted a photo of a house she built for her mom on her Instagram account, with the caption: “I built this for you mom. For all the prayers; all the encouragement and support. Mummy, I know you said you want a portable house and this is it. But forgive me because I must complete your mansion for you next year. Don’t worry, it won’t make us go to hell; my super Christmas mummy. I love you.”
However, there have been comments from some social media users who were of the opinion that the young actress should also build a house for her father.
But in an interview with The PUNCH on Monday, Emanuella said the house gift also belonged to her father.
She said: “I wanted to buy another car for my dad but Uncle Mark now told me to save more money and build the house that I promised my mom. So, I talked with my manager and they built the house and furnished it. See the house now, is it not fine?
“If it is for my mom, it is for everybody; it’s for my dad too. My dad is married to my mom. After all, they are living together.”
Emanuella attributed all that has been happening in her life to “God’s grace.”
“Everything is God’s grace. I never ‘experrit’. When God wants to use you, He will use you at the right time,” she noted.
Emanuella’s producer, Mark Angel, also said in the exclusive interview that the young actress could afford to build the house.
“Emanuella earns money, so she has money to build whatever she wants to build. She can afford it. Her management can afford it,” he said.
The 10-year-old came into limelight with her funny skits which she posts on her social media accounts. She is also an award-winning comedian and an ambassador for several brands.
