Some of the verses that stood out to me were
LOL, come to Lagos and see the number of guys pretending to be CEOs and MDs, driving big cars that double as their homes, because they can't afford rent.
In a normal society, this is true. The wealthy people are the ones who attract thieves or kidnappers. However, Nigeria is not a normal society.
This reminds me of a recent story on Jason Njoku, a budding media mogul in Nigeria. He cofounded iROKO TV, which Forbes called the Netflix of Africa! Just 4 years ago, his company's monthly statement for July 2010 had £60.00 income. As in, that was his monthly earnings. At that point, he had been working at it for 6 years. Six whole years, and you're getting that little? Most of us would have given up by then, but he kept at it. And by 2013, he was listed by Forbes as one of the Ten African Internet Millionaires to watch! Talk about staying the course. Lots of people nowadays want to get rich very quickly, without putting in the hard work required. I personally think that if you put in hard work over time, it makes you that much more grateful when you become successful, because you know where you've come from.
BAM! Isn't this true? You can send a message via someone, and they go and interpret it in a way that's different from the original message you intended to send. Be careful of who you relay your messages to.
I'm thankful for my parents who corrected and still correct us when we go wrong.
