    The realest moment was around 2:00 with the eye-contact. The Prince and The Pauper, anyone?
    Other than the reality of hunger and the hustle of children hawking/working, may I propose that rich people in Nigeria are suffering and really should do something?

    Rich or not, do you dare drink the water from your tap? Do you have water even, or do you have your own water system with a borehole you’ve dug just a few feet from your neighbour’s borehole/well?
    Your generator smoke and noise are ruining your life…your mechanic praises God for you because with the things cars go through – working several hours a day, swimming through craggy ponds, raggedy so-called roads – your cars will always be cashcows.
    You don’t have basic insurance, you keep trying to hoard enough money to cater for eventualities that ought to be insured.

    So if you want to expand the gap b/w yourself and the poor in Africa, kwantinu, they will be the armed robbers to end you, and the crap police to not help you. Just being real. We rise together or not at all.

    (Who I epp sef, lol)
