“There is no short cut to making it in life” – Soso Soberekon shares the Secret to his Success



General Manager of Five Star Music, Soso Soberekon has revealed the secret of his success in the music industry as a manager and producer.

In an Instagram post, he chides today’s youth for reasoning they can be instant millionaires overnight. His post reads:

“Young men/women get it so wrong these days.
There is no short cut to making it, getting rich or ‘hammering’ if you will.’
The mistake you make is thinking successful people literally become successful overnight. This simply doesn’t happen.
It takes hardwork, smart work, guts, determination, taking risks and consistency to get to the apex of whatever field you’re in.
If luck is present, it’s a very tiny percent. Negligible really. Opportunities present themselves and it’s up to you to do the best with it what you will. This should never be mistaken for sheer luck.
The trend for young Nigerian men today is to get initiated and belong to one demonic cult or confraternity in the hopes that doors would be open to you and you’d achieve success instantly.
Only a lazy mind would reason this way. Work hard. Work smart. Work never killed anybody.
Selling a piece of your soul for phantom riches is the height of ridiculousness. When it’s your time to shine, it’s your time. Nothing would stop it except your laziness.
I’m a product of hard word and tenacity. I didn’t belong to any secret organisation. It was simply my hard work and determination.
Young men need to eschew laziness and work to achieve success. Be innovative. Think. Ideas. Ideas. Ideas. Ideas move the world. Always. The world would never stop needing ideas.
Short cuts never pay. Don’t be deceived thinking they do. Lest you end up taking the long way back because you decided to cut corners.
Be wise. Stay blessed and remember don’t get involved in shady things and shady association.
When they said patience is a virtue, they weren’t lying.”

    But who said everyone wants to be a millionaire??
    That’s the mishap of new money mindset from Nigerian Men. Being a millionaire does not mean you are successful, it means you have achieved riches. That’s why some rich Nigerian men struggle to bring anything to a relationship other than money and Status. The Nigerian Narrative is that we should all strive to be rich. and those that have achieved that are the utmost pinnacle in life. That narrative is the biggest 419 sold to young Nigerians. Diligence and consistency with integrity in all you do is what you should focus on. It may not bring riches but it brings purpose. My, dad always told us Purpose will give you enough for your needs not your wants.Don’t ever lust after another persons journey,..evvveeerrrrr…in your life!!!!!!!! especially if they haven’t sat down with you to explain the back story. Nigerian land has many back stage stories. Also, dear 19 year old girl, flying on a Jet should not be your definition of ‘goals’ running a company who builds Jet ,should, If you are 28 and you think your goal this year is to make money, buy a new Jeep (just because), travel to Dubai(just because) you should examine your heart about purpose.. But if you wake up with a desire to provide for your family, build a warranted education for your children, be frugal with the money you have, start a savings account for your family for just in case days or thinking about how you can help your office colleagues be better, that is Purpose. Money will come. But don’t let is distract you from purpose. Being a millionaire is not a big enough dream, if that’s all we have, we ain;t dreaming hard enough boo

      Very succinctly put ??????. But the level of poverty in our country is what makes people think that acquiring riches is the pinnacle.
