    Haha, 40 quid for gini?
    This is not Nigeria with plenty of money miss road. We get water, mortgage, electric, gas, council tax, car insurance, road insurance, MOT, childcare, home insurance and credit card bills to pay.

    My dear, learn from basketmouth. His tickets start from 15 pounds. Just saying but if you have a clique of high class friends – likes of DJ Cuppy and co, then l guess 40 pounds is nothing to them.

    Apparently, she is coming to London where most of us are already Financial literates.
    Every quid that comes in, is accounted for….even if we came from naija as illiterates, we already learnt .

    Thanks, plus paying 40quid to see the Arese when the book is less that 5k in Niaja is Financial Bondage!

    People please be Wise.

      Kinda goes against the principles of the. “Smart money” book, no?

    The theme is “how to thrive in a difficult economy” then you charge 40 quid for a book reading with no sense of irony whatsoever……unbelievable

  8. UK peepu will not kill meeee!!!

    March 17, 2017 at 6:00 pm

    I have laughed at all your comments!!. £40 is kinda steep. It’s not a tell all like her BFF so nothing interesting to share.
    You folks living in the UK are the most qualified to teach us Nigerians plenty about financial literacy and management.

    Even Warren Buffet will not charge such! Financial literacy starts with being wise with your money and for that reason I can not justify paying £40 to listen to rehashed stuff that I can get from better books on the internet. Thanks but no thanks

    This is what happens when you believe your own Instagram hype. What new knowledge are you teaching that you want to charge £40? See madness. Firstly, having your event in Chelsea is not convenient.. It should be somewhere more central for accessibility. Secondly, I don’t think your book has gotten to the stage where a book tour should happen. I understand you and your friends are doing the same things (maky benson, toke etc) but this isn’t working. You haven’t reached Chimamandas level sef to do book tour. Just stick to Amazon sales and stop the hype. Thirdly, one can get better financial books that are cheaper online. So £40 is quite delusional.
