Popular Nigerian comedian and entertainer, Ayo Makun appears not to share the same belief expressed by Nigerians that “givers never lack”. AY also went on to condemn people who expect you to assist them once you have some money.
The comedian pointed out to the fact that one cannot help everyone and still remain financially stable.
“If you help them all, you will also go broke”, Ayo said.
The comedian wrote:
From not wanting to disappoint anybody, people consistently expects u to PLEASE everyone. It’s only in Nigeria your 1Million Naira will attract 20 friends & family with 100k problems each? Why do they always fail to understand that if you give everybody, u will become BROKE too?
People around you should understand that you cannot please everyone all the time. It usually ends up being a terrible move whenever you try to do that amongst people who fail to understand, or lack appreciation for even the little you do.
We can only appreciate the sermon of ‘Give and it will come back to you…’ when you are in position to give. There’s always going to be someone disappointed, so you might as well make yourself happy and Be You. ‘Givers never lack’ no mean say make you lack sense. According to Timaya ‘I CAN’T KILL MYSELF’.
