Strika, on the other hand, has remained a street boy with his living standards not changing despite being given a decent pay cheque for his role.

"The guy messed up his own life with tramol and following the wrong crowd. His manager really tried for him but bloggers and silly people demonized him online, made it look like the man wanted to exploit him. They took him to a good school, but he effed around and dropped out. Trouble after trouble. Later many of us came together with multiple funding attempts to reshape this guy but stiiiill. The only truly helper of this boy would be he himself if he truly wants to change his life around. Else, he'll remain on the street like that. Honestly, we've really tried. Enough of the sympathy."
