Being broke is not a joke. Especially when you rae in the midst of people who like showoffs. Whilst they are genuinely being happy for their successes chalked, you might be sobbing within because you are quite far from whatever they are enjoying.
Contributing to these matters at hand, a renowned Nigerian feminist, socialite and TV/radio personality, Nkech Bianze has said that poverty can make you feel quite depressed and hopeless at the same time. According to Nkechi, money could help cure depression more than therapy in Africa.
The outspoken feminists noted;
***Poverty is bad sha.
It’s poverty that will make someone log into their online banking app several times an hour to calculate and recalculate how much they’ve spent.
I woke up this morning and the very first thing I did was to log into my Nigerian and Canadian bank accounts. Then I started doing calculations.
Despite how good I am with numbers, I used the calculator on my phone because I couldn’t believe the decline in my account balance. I was ready to contact the bank customer service here in Canada or go on Twitter to call out Zenith Bank. Then my calculator told me I spent it all by myself with my hands.
I feel robbed.
Have you ever spent so much, checked your account balance and felt like you were robbed at gunpoint? That’s poverty, dear. But we are in it together.
But in 2021; poverty must die! Amen!
