She wrote “As a young woman with no husband and children, this is the time to set yourself up financially. You have all the energy now to make your own money before these responsibilities. Marriage is not a ticket to financial freedom.
“I know how many married women beg me for money daily. Start a business even if na to sell okro and crayfish, sell it and sell it big. No business wey no dey yield profit. Some marriages come with combined efforts financially… So prepare not to lack on your own part. May God equip you all with strength and wisdom to run that business you have been planning since.”(sic)

Who knew fufu could yield so much profit? But I’m sure a lot of you will be shy to even let people know that you eat fufu talk more about selling it lol… There’s no shame in a legit hustle, let wisdom guide you!
“I am talking to all the young women who look up to me… I hope you see that I am not going through short cuts or trying to take the easy way out….. My beauty can get me anything I want but I want more than my beauty can get me. Please don’t let anyone tell you that hard work doesn’t pay o… Because it does eventually. Get up and do the right thing now! I love you”
