Nigerian actor, Prince Eke, has taken to social media to accuse American billionaire, Jeff Bezos of tax evasion.
This comes after Jeff Bezos announced that he will be giving away his 124 billion dollar fortune.
This was disclosed by Bezos in a face-to-face interview with CNN. He stated that he intends to give the majority of his net wealth to charitable organizations during his lifetime; these funds will be used to fight climate change and to aid those who can help to mend racial and social barriers.
Bezos responded, “Yeah, I do,” when asked if he intended to donate the majority of his money during his lifetime.
Speaking from his home in Washington, DC, with his partner Lauren Sanchez, Bezos added:
“The hard part is figuring out how to do it in a levered way.
“It’s not easy. Building Amazon was not easy. It took a lot of hard work, a bunch of very smart teammates, hard-working teammates, and I’m finding — and I think Lauren is finding the same thing — that charity, philanthropy, is very similar.”
He did not specify where the money would be spent, nor gave an exact percentage.
Bezos’ announcement comes after he gave a $100million prize to singer Dolly Parton for her “love and compassion in every aspect of her work”.
Reacting to the story, Prince Eke took to the comment section of an Instagram blog accusing the divorced billionaire of planning to evade tax. He wrote, “Enyi , you no wan pay tax abi ? Tax evasion strategy “
