Senior Pastor of Champions Royal Assembly, Kubwa, Abuja, Joshua Iginla, last Sunday, gave out 32 cars to selected people like Nollywood actors and sundry gifts to some less-privileged people, which has got many tongues wagging.

Out of the cars this benevolent man of God dashed out were 16 SUVs he used to celebrate his birthday.

Iginla also gave out money running into several millions of Naira to the aged, widows, orphanages and scholarships to orphans from nursery school to university.

From Bro Joshua Iginla, six Nollywood stars got Hummer jeep 3 series, Mercedes G-Wagon and Mercedes CLS 550.

They included Prince Jide Kosoko, Francis Duru, Alex Usifo, Ngozi Osondu, Thelma Nwosu and Sunday Omobolanle popularly known as Aluwe.

Some artisans got generators and cash gifts, while the widows got deep freezers, rice and cash gifts ranging from N150,000 to N1.5 million.

Treasure Orphanage Foundation, Nyanya, Divine Wound Orphanage, Kubwa and Christ Home Foundation, Kuje, got N1.5 million each and many bags of rice, while some orphans in the homes were awarded scholarships from nursery to university.

Iginla said he has 782 widows and orphans he caters for.

“It doesn’t matter to me if I trek home, as I have given even the car that I personally drive. I can only drive one car and live in one house at a time. This understanding is what has taught me that when I die, others will inherit my assets.

“The beauty of life is not in its duration but in its donation. I have not seen some of the beneficiaries before in my life or spoken to them. I’m seeing many of them for the first time today. I am seeing Jide Kosoko for the first time”, he said.

As to why he annually doles out posh cars to Nollywood acts, Iginla said he gives out cars to the Nollywood actors because many of them are poor but many people erroneously think they are rich, because of the kind of wealthy roles some of them play in the movies.

So this is my own way of correcting the wrong impression, he explained.

According to him, the fruit of the Nollywood artistes is being sucked dry by pirates and challenged government to do something to arrest it.

“The Nollywood actors and actresses are our ambassadors; they have projected the image of this country positively”, he said.

Veteran actor, Jide Kosoko, who confirmed he was meeting Iginla for the first time, commended him for his philanthropy.

Iginla had, in 2015, given 18 cars and millions of naira as his birthday gifts to people, and has since then increased the tally on a yearly basis.
