Comedian MCA Tricky has revealed that the recent purchase of a Sh5 million Jaguar by his fellow comedian Eddie Butita is not actually owned by him.
MCA Tricky calls out Eddie Butita over ownership of his Sh5M Jaguar
Butita shared images of the Sh5 million Jaguar on his Instagram page
Speaking to bloggers recently to promote his upcoming show, Tricky accused Butita of lying about the new car that he flaunted on his Instagram page.
"What did you say? Butita? Which car? There is no need for you to miss out on going to heaven, Butita, just because of a car. We will not use vehicles in heaven. Butita with a Sh5 million car! Even the car's engine won't come to life," Tricky responded to the bloggers who had asked him about the car.
However, Tricky added that Butita is a hard-working comedian who will one day be able to buy an expensive car. He also noted that it is easy to tell if someone has bought a Sh5 million car without having to inquire about it.
Tricky clarified that comedy can be a lucrative profession, depending on how an individual operates in the industry.
"Comedy pays well. But we want to take it to a higher level. People are still undermining artists, but they will come to understand what we do one day because I trust that we should be getting to the levels of earning from our art even if we are 50 years old.
"If you look at a comedian like Chris Rock, he is making money in his 50s. So it all depends on how you have packaged yourself for you to make money," he explained.
Tricky emphasized that good packaging of one's work is essential for earning money in the later stages of a career.
