Nollywood actress, Funmi Bank-Anthony, one of the grandchildren of the late Sir Mobolaji Bank-Anthony, has revealed that her granddad never left anything for his children when he died.

In an interview with The Sun, she revealed that the one-time council President of the Lagos Stock Exchange and a minority investor in Aero-Contractors, had 48 house in Lagos, but willed everything to the less privileged and that motivated her to also become a philanthropist.

According to her: “It started with my grandfather. When he died, he wrote in his will that all his belongings be donated to the less privileged, even including the spoons.

.

He had about 48 houses in Lagos and he declared that all be given to the motherless (children) and that is so huge for me, because I see it that he left us to suffer.

If he had left the houses in Lagos for us, I would be a multi-billionaire today, even as a grandchild. He was one of the richest men in Nigeria and he didn’t leave anything for us. That was deep for me.

I see it that the things you boast of today can be taken away from you within the twinkling of an eye. It then dawned on me that I could lose the things I have. So, philanthropy came out of the fear of losing the things I have.

So, I would rather give it out than lose them when I am gone, though some people take you for granted when they know you are excessively nice.”
