I’m thinking of doing a series on Being broke. I don’t know how it’ll turn out but it has been the most recent experience of my life and I feel that most of us will relate with these experiences. Let’s see…
I like money. In fact, I love having money. All those who hate the thought of opening their wallets to see money say aye. No response? Okay, so we all like money, thank you very much. We all love money and the absence of it puts us in a state of discomfort or worse.

You see, the thing with having principles in life is that they must be tested. Your principles can’t be tried when all is well with you, mba! They must be tried when breaking them would seem the most convenient escape.
As a fine girl, when you’re financially buoyant and on point, no man will come to proposition you so that you can show him what you’re made of o! By the time you are broke, they’ll be everywhere, as though you are sending out a signal “find me, I’m broke now”.
The ones that got your phone number from a former coworker will call you to tell you how they’ll turn your life around if you just say yes. You will go to buy toothpaste in the morning, looking like Ayamatanga but they will still pull over. They will wait for you at your place of work. They will sneak their cards into your hands. They will be everywhere, moneyed up and looking to spend it on you if you are willing to play!!!

Dear fine, broke, Nigerian girl, this is the test of all the hash tags you’ve been creating on social media; #bosschick, #making my dough, #queen of my empire, #miss independent, etc. We heard you Aunty! However, this is when you’ll realise that every fine, broke, Nigerian girl is just a principle away from being a runs girl. Abi, I dey lie?
