It all happened during a heated exchange with a Twitter user.
The Twitter user simply shared that any guy who is not financially buoyant at the age of 24 has failed as a man, however, Akin Alabi disclosed that at 24, he still relied on his mother for as little as N100.
His words, quoting the tweet from the Nigerian, “What kind of nonsense is this, this early morning? At 24, I still relied on my mother to give me as little as N100.”
Another response read, “Jack Ma, Morgan Freeman, Jack Dorsey and the likes were nobody at that age. Everyone is running their own race at their pace. You made it at 24 doesn’t mean you won’t make it at 34, 44 or 54. Who go better go better nah just time e good take.”
Do you agree?
