Are you wealthy or rich?

"Don't be involved in aristo, yahoo, gambling, money rituals, armed robbery, bribery, corrupt practices" we say but we honour people who do. We invite people who have made or are making money through these means to our events and give them special recognition and treatment. We date and marry such men (and ladies). Religious and educational institutions honour them. I was at a church some years back. A governor came in halfway into the service. Everything became rowdy and then the order of the service changed. At that point, the adult I was with thought it wise to leave. We hurl all sorts of insults at politicians. Yet, when someone we can benefit from gets into government and loots public funds, we turn a blind eye to that and enjoy the money. Go on instagram and see people, who should be ashamed of how they make their money, flaunt it and we, "in hypocrisy or lack of understanding", hail them "Boss, yolo!" "Biggest babe, I love your style, you're my role model". We make hard working, decent men and women look lazy.
So what they have money? We've got free things they don't have.
Nobody cares how anyone makes money these days. As long as you're living the good life, you have lots of well-wishers. For your mind, you are the best thing to happen to the world after the sun. Are you a learner? These people do not care about you, they just want to be associated with a  big boy/babe and maybe make some bucks while at it. There would be a few people telling you the truth but you allow yourself be deceived. The anonymouses speaking against you are termed jealous haters. Majority of them are indeed jealous and wish they were in your shoes. Maybe i'm just jealous too? Naaah, you should be jealous of me. I come from one of the wealthiest families. We have too much love that we generously give outsiders. We have respect, discipline, education, the fear and knowledge of God, good health, a blog (lol!), we're not starving or borrowing and we're good looking, ding! What more do we need? This is wealthy to me. Errrm, some money won't be bad. Private jets dreams will come alive by God's grace and "we'll" be working hard for it. My point is that we need to know what really matters and appreciate what we have.





N.B. Kefee is awake! Going by reports, the "Kokoroko" crooner fell and had a trauma to the head when she fainted aboard a Chicago bound flight and had been in a coma for about two weeks. We pray a speedy recovery for her. Thanks to everyone that prayed and bless your hearts for reading again. Let's talk ladies and our hustle tomorrow. Xoxo

*Aristo = Modernized fancy prostitution
 Yahoo = Internet fraud

Those things mentioned do not make a man rich. A lot of the people who engage in such realise later when it becomes a little too late
