In a new development, KOK updated fans about his son collecting his first salary as a young man. According to the actor, he wanted to observe the Father’s Blessings ceremony with his son. He said:

“I want to observe a culture from our ancestors which has led to the progress of many people you’re seeing today, father’s blessing. Clinton Onyeze, my son, has just concluded a film production management with us and he has earned his first salary, N50,000 for the movie.”

Speaking further, Kanayo O. Kanayo added that it was an Igbo culture for a man to give his dad his first pay so that he could pray for him and teach him financial management. Not stopping there, the movie veteran added that people who give their first salaries to their pastors are only wasting their time.

In his words:

“This is the culture of Ndigbo, the first salary of a young man goes to his father, the father may decide to take the entire money or decide to collect N1000, N2000, or N5000, it is in Igbo culture and his father will bless him. The idea of his father asking him to know his salary is to teach him financial management, he will now tell him how to manage his money and how to make it in life, he will now pronounce his blessings. So all you who are going to the pastors to sow your salary, you’re wasting your time, it’s not part of our culture. Only a father can bless his son or daughter.”

KOK then proceeded to lay his hands on his son and pray for him. He also reiterated that after God, he is his son’s eyes, mouth, and everything in this world and not his pastor.
