    ??????????? See GOBE!!! Ok keep preaching while I await the comments to roll in. Come to think of it, this applies to a lot of people living overseas as well. There’s peace when we live within our means & like I always say, know who U are in the society.

    I think living in banana Island or lekki should also count as success BUT not to be the prime definition. you’re who you surround yourself with, and by the way, not everybody can afford to fake it

    Nice one! The levels of fraud and mismanagement in the music industry is extravagant but not new from TLC, to Toni Braxton to NWA they are plenty. If you don’t know to manage money, create a respected and trustworthy brand and have honest and efficient people around you, well you’re on your own my friend. Living above means is a global phenomenom not specific to music industry. God help us (me)!

    even though i understand his point of view i feel like an artist job is to sell u a fantasy and that’s why a lot of these celebrities will tell u that one thing their managers and label owners tells them is to make sure they are someone everybody wants to be like and want to be with and that’s how most celebrity get their endowment deals and sell album. when they post all these expensive stuff on their Instagram they get more attention from ppl becos ppl wanna see they kind of life that they know they can’t afford or have and in return these big companies sees that they have a lot of followers online they will want to endorse them for their product. basically what am trying to say is that these celebrity do all these online show off for business
