The movie star revealed this on Instagram today.
According to her, hustling Nigerians should not get depressed when they see flashy things because a lot of savings and sweat went into it.
She added that everyone should learn to save to spoil themselves in the future.
Her words, “Quick advice for young hustling people: A lot of you come on social media to see people who are having a great time with exotic trips and vacation, and you slip into depression, what you don’t know is that many people plan and save towards their trips. Some people plan a year before or even two years. A beautiful photo that shows a vacation might be a result of saving for many years. Don’t be deceived into thinking it’s that easy. It is not.
“Even the flashy cars and houses and phones you see with rich people, they plan and save towards it. They won’t tell you, all you know is that they just got a house. Go and ask them how long it took to save up, and the sacrifices they made to gather up the finances. See, it’s never really too rosy for people as it seems on social media. Just keep working hard. Save for important things. Save to spoil yourself. ❤️”
