No politician is sponsoring me – Skit-maker, Ashmusy.

Amarachi Amusi, better known on Instagram as Ashmusy, is a prominent Nigerian comedian who has refuted allegations that politicians are funding her extravagant lifestyle.

She issued the denial shortly after it was claimed that she and her friend, fellow sketch creator Nons Miraj, were having an affair with Dino Melaye.

Ashmusy claimed that her dedication as a content creator and businesswoman has helped her to afford the lavish lifestyle.

She said; “I will say they should keep swimming in their ignorance and poverty; that is their problem.

If they cannot see the work (we do) and the things we post every day, and realise that those things fetch us money (that is their problem).

It is totally untrue (that I am being financed by anyone).

“I was shock, as I did not understand it; especially because I had never met him or had anything to do with him (Dino Melaye).

“The allegation came about because the blog involved was trying to chase clout and drive attention to their page.”

On why she sent a message to Gistlovers blog that broke the news, Ashmusy said they have always done business before so it was a shock that the blogger posted unfounded claims about her.

The comedienne said; “The blogger and I usually chat even about business, so I sent a message refuting the story.

I asked why they posted such false and terrible information (about me) without verifying it first.”
