Professor Johnbull raps Nigerians on ponzi schemes in episode 2


The predilection of looking for easy money at all cost symtomised by the love for ponzi schemes is the morale of episode 2 of Season 3 of Professor Johnbull, the TV drama series sponsored by the grandmasters of data, Globacom scheduled for broadcast this Tuesday.

Tagged Make Money Miss (MMM), the episode exposes the folly of indulging in online money networks, otherwise known as ponzi scheme, and the attendant heartaches and sorrow the scheme unleashes on victims who are usually taken for a ride when their transactions fail.

Parading Professor Johnbull (Kanayo O. Kanayo), the conscience of the Series, who submits that risk is part of life,  Make Money Miss features other regulars of the sitcom such as Flash (Stephen Odimgbe), Elizabeth (Queen Nwokoye), Caro (Mercy Johnson Okojie), Olaniyi starred by Yomi Fash-Lanso, Samson (Ogus Baba), Jumoke (Bidemi Kosoko), Ufoma (Bimbo Akintola), Mai Doya (Funky Mallam) and Abadnego (Martins Nebo).

Scheduled for broadcast on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes at 8.30p.m.Make Money Miss throws up questions such as: Are victims of ponzi schemes gullible or merely greedy? What constitutes blind risk?  Can we really say that those who participated in ponzi schemes put both legs to test the depth of the water?  Are there no genuine online money network platforms?  Do ponzi schemes underscore the philosophy of nothing ventured, nothing gained?

According to the producers,  Make Money Miss is projected to caution people to be wary of the many online money networks dotting the Nigerian landscape and to be circumspect in determining how they invest their hard-earned monies so as not to fall victim to scams or lose their life savings, especially at this hard time”.

“We believe that arts mirror the society and serve the major purpose of being the barometer to gauge the moral standing of the society. This is exactly whatProfessor Johnbull has been doing since it came to the Nigerian airwaves and we are more than encouraged by the feedback from the viewing public”, said the producers.

The repeat broadcast of the episode comes on air on Friday on the same channels, at the same time.
