      Hello BN,
      I keep hearing this song each time I click on a post. I think it’s an advert because it usually ends with a voice saying something about RED. It distracts and irritates. If you can correct this, please do. I don’t like it.

      My exact sentiments. I cannot stand pseudo-advice, gosh. Typical Nigerian man and his everlasting myopia. He cannot fathom in his coconut head that a young girl can work and a young girl can sponsor herself to have the best things in life. It has to be a he-goat like himself financing her before he can understand this. Rubbish. Every woman is a potential whore to these myopic lots. Most of them deal a lot with prostitutes that is why they feel a lady, a hotel and a selfie automatically translates to whore-dom. Na woman wey no get sense go dey stress herself dey sleep with these losers to enjoy life. If not for them we wouldn’t be getting these pseudo-advice from riff-raffs.

      See young girls, it is not a mountainous task to live this kind of life of hotels and airports on your own terms. Every girl needs to experience this even for one day. Travel within Africa, or even Nigeria. That is why I like Isio’s travels. Don’t let any person make you feel these can be only achieved through some sugar daddy, cos that is the kind of message these men try to send out. Some professions even sponsor these trips for you. I work in such an industry- clinical research. I was recently on an all expense paid trip to California for a meeting. I had a room to myself. The meeting was supposed to last for 2 days. I stayed 3 days, cos I told them I can’t be boarding a flight at night, lol. I took about 500 selfies, did shakara for my parents and sisters for a week, lol. No I’m not rich, never been rich. All you have to do is just try your hardest to do well in your academics and plan ahead. Everything will piece itself together for good when you put in the necessary work in your youth. Again, na woman wey no get sense go dey stress herself dey sleep with these losers to enjoy life.

      My sister, calm down…..we know exactly what he’s talking about. I see photos girls take in hotel bathrooms and i wonder why the need to flaunt it when its not like your office sent you on an assignment and put you in a hotel. Most are even unemployed girls as well as undergrads. Be reasonable pls.

    • Engoz

      You have to REJECT such narrative of girl, selfie, hotel = prostitution. Some of us will not fall for such advice laced with misogyny.

    I totally agree with him 100percent!!! Haba it’s shocking how we all now glorify “hoeism” cos they can afford labels.. you’ll see girls snapping in different hotel rooms, putting their breakfast on snapchat. You can see them in 5 different hotel rooms In a week.. the funny part is its not like they travelled out of the country that you would say ok they are on vacation.. no!! They are within Nigeria.. it’s shocking, you see the girl who lives in abuja will be taking pictures in a bat robe in hilton will tag it luxury living.. how do we know it is hilton? Most of them turn on their location or you would see a girl who lives in lagos will be taking pics of her in a room in oriental and you’ll see over 500 likes with people commenting “you are living the life” when and where did we throw decency away.. the one that irritates me to my bones is now they flaunt their married boyfriend not caring who sees it or hears them, they even go as far as putting their pics on ig or tagging them with their initials!!!! And I wonder what the wife at home would be going through.. what is happening happening our society?!!!

      A girl that goes from hotel to hotel and posts luxury items given to her by men on social media is a successful young girl? Do tell, what is your definition of success?

    There are lot of things they really need to stop doing. Hoping one day Bella Naija will be kind enough to write an honest article about some of these unfunny things. I’m sincerely looking forward to that day.

    Because every “young girl” in a hotel room is a) messing around b)can’t afford to pay for it and c) has low self esteem?!

    God forbid I have a job and take myself on holiday (like I did this Easter weekend – solo)

    moronic generalisation and chronic myopia *rolls eyes*

    Who is this one? how did you know we can’t afford breakfast and hotel bills. I am a hardworking young woman who travels atleast once a year for vacation to relax. if i go on vacations am i supposed to go to someone’s house and take pictures while am lodging in a hotel? Everyone forming adviser this days….Pls channel your advice on things that will help you live a productive life here on earth.

      Thank you oh! It’s offensive that the general impression when a young girl is seen in a hotel is that she’s a runs girl. I’m an auditor so I spend a lot of time at hotels because I’ve got to be work from clients offices. Some young girls also work hard so they can afford to go away on holidays. People like Sheyman shouldn’t be allowed to stereotype us.

      April 4, 2016 at 1:49 pm

      Truth be said most young women dont spend their hard earned money anyhow. its a different gist all together if you are on vacation. I work hard and I mean really hard and i think twice before I spend my money. you see girls who come from humble backgrounds flashing things they cant afford. Abeg the dude is on point #SELFRESPECT

    Haba! Would you rather have them take a selfie close to a refuse dump? If a young lady is all covered up, takes a good pix and share, how does it depict a low self esteem Biko? Abi na your babe you dey send this one to? I would have preferred you advise young ladies not to take selfies in uncompromising position…not every lady who takes a selfie in a nice hotel is a hoe.

    Ode leleyi sha! Just frothing from the mouth. Everybody is trying to be relevant these days and this is the best you could coe up with? Really? I cant afford the breakfast? In which hotel? Sheyman can you yourself afford hotel with this your dwindling/probably dead career? Can you carry a chick to Maison and farenheit(for example ni o) to eat? Will they even allow your razz scruffy looking self through the doors?So what makes you the authority to address this issue that is so pertinent? Can you afford pizza at rhapsody for a girl and her friends? LEt me stop spewing hate. I bet I sound weak right now. I am just weak.

    So what if she is cheap and proud, is it your waka? Empower her with your wealth na? Like just Dm that chick with the hotel picture and ask for her acct number maybe?

    Everyone wants to chill, we should use our brain..i see how far your own has carried you in life. Obo Langido amugbo! Don’t goan procreate and be there following girls that post hotel pictures on the gran,

      Who is this again? you are obviously a poor dude who is angry @ a girl that refused to date you but is enjoying her life. Smh you should see my brother’s cook make you breakfast u will know that it doesnt have to be an hotel b4 u have a good looking breakie, asking if they can afford breakfast, i am sure tomorrow you will release one dead song so this is to create awareness. Many times i just stay @ an hotel for the weekend after a stressful week, does that make me a hoe? abeg abeg take a seat with your dead career, you are living in abeokuta where life is easy and u here blabbing, come to Lagos i bet you wont survive 6months.

    • Bola

      April 1, 2016 at 1:56 pm

      Most people taking it too personal fall into the category. While this happens daily (girls doing these things) and it shouldn’t be commended, I don’t like generalizations (the musician). However, most people taking it way too personal possibly fall into the said category.

    If he isn’t refering to those who can actually afford to pay hotel bills, then he should state that instead of making sweeping generalisations. TF? I take myself to hotels and stay for entire weekends if need be, often, just to rest and change environment maybe. Why should I be refered to as a “ho” simply cos I choose to do that? In this day and age?

    Sorry for diverting, but I’m dying in silence here. My boss has chronic diabetes, he can’t hold his urine anymore so he does it involve a cup in his office and keeps it btw the dimercation of his office and my section. This tin smells like a dead body. On several occasions i intentionally pushed it down and he instructed one of his messengers to clean it up but he still does it. Most times I go home with my belly swollen, chei I’m dead. Private work no be work.

    Hello Sheyman, you don’t earn a honest living and you know we know. You haven’t earned the right to call anyone out. Keep quiet and keep at what you do pending the time the law catches up with you.

    Is it impossible that these young girls can infact afford those things? Is it also impossible that she’s enjoying all the luxury living because she dates a man (please I didn’t say sugar daddy before y’all break your keyboards) who can afford it and goes to this places with this ONE man but is not one to be public about her relationship?

    So the vitriol people spill is just because they can’t see the financier of all the soft living. It really does not mean she whores around.

    I have left naija girls alone I don’t even follow any IG “fashionista” . What I have seen with my eyes and ears , there has to be a special place in hell for these women . And then have the audacity to be posting “God is love””trust in the lord” “Jesus is this and that” while posing in their best friends boyfriends room who is also their classmates husband . GOD IS WATCHING ALL OF YOU . it seems this is normal now and them hoes be getting married too, what goes around comes around sha . All I’m saying is leave Jesus out of it . And their followers too “sister you are blessed” “I tap into the your blessing” FOH.

    In mental health services, we always encourage our service user to take pictures of themselves(selfies). You must be in a right state of mind to even think of taking picture of yourselves in a public or in a party or anywhere. Do you think you can take selfie while sad, distressed or stressed or in sickness, sorrow or pain. Absolutely no! Seyi, you really sound like one of the “yoruba demons” that Toke Makinwa talked about in her blog. Why not direct your advise to that particular lady to took to hotel or B&B (Bed & Breakfast) and was taking the picture of the breakfast served that upset you to put this article up on your IG. Please let ppple enjoy their lives, you only live once…its none of your biz whr pple take selfies. Can you do me a big favour, all your younger sisters at home need your advise please gather them for family meeting and advise them to stop being happy and taking picture of themselves. Olofo! Even Obama self dey take selfies. Can I ask you a question please why do yu upload your pics on IG? Please keep the answer to yourself ….pple do things for different reason, so park well dude.

    The generalization is wrong…. But you guys are getting it wrong..: most of this girls on my snap chat are in Lagos, their papa get house for high land Abi main land I honestly don’t know the difference and they keep hopping from one hotel to the other… Taking selfies and posting expensive meals! Not saying they can’t afford it tho, but why on earth would I be in 3 different hotel when my papa get house? Y’all criticizing this post are runs girls.. If you like yab me I don’t care../ if the post doesn’t refer to you… Simply move on… I feel really bad when I go on sc or Instagram and all I see is girls smoking hookah, clubbing, doing yeye photo shoot up and down and taking hotel pictures 24/7 in my mind I’m like what do this babes do for a living?? Most of these girls are not even portraying an example of omo dada… They are all acting like omo irole aye… Don’t get me wrong it’s cool to club and smoke and all that but when all you do morning to night every day is Junp from hotel and do all of the mentioned things…. People would think otherwise.

LIVING in Lagos and lodging in Eko Hotel and Suites LIVING in Abuja lounging in the Transcorp Hilton. If you actually RESIDE in the same city your lodging in please tell me what is wrong with your house????? He is clearly not referring to those who travel for work or holiday come on guys its in bred in all of us let’s use the common sense that is rarely common
