I have been doing this since 2006, it's not a new thing.

Malcolm X

I'm not rich, I come from a very poor background. I decided in 2005 that when I become rich, I'll really distribute cash to old age homes, orphanages, HIV hospices and students.

Malcolm X

I've realised you don't have to be rich to start giving to the poor.

Malcolm X says it has not been an easy ride since he started this journey.

He says he has faced criticism and also lost his girlfriend because of his generosity. He further states that in some of his trip to the universities his money would finish and he would reach out to friends to help him.

Malcolm X says he even stays without lights sometimes because of being broke.

The people who say the money from cash in transit heists, please check with my bank and see the source of the money. I'm a consultant.

Malcolm X

As I'm speaking to you now my bank balance is on a negative and I feel good because this past Saturday I gave away almost R23 000.

WATCH: Wow! Good Samaritan's act of kindness goes a long way

Malcolm X called out to his critics saying they should focus their energy somewhere else.

My haters or critics have nothing or little to give to the poor they need help themselves.

Malcolm X

They are not speaking against people who spend R50 000 to R200 000 on champagne in nightclubs. They are not speaking against people who spend thousands of rands gambling while we have so many people out there.
