Bryshere Y. Gray, who plays Hakeem Lyon on the hit Fox show “Empire,” said the upside to fame was having the money to buy his mom a house.

The actor said, “The best thing that has happened to me was that I bought my mom a house. I had her just go and pick one out . . . I told her, ‘Don’t go crazy yet, but go get something very nice,’ and she did.”

At a recent appearance at the NBA Awards, he said, “That was my boss moment, but it was a blessing moment as well.”

All blessings to God! We love it!

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. (Ephesians 20:12)
