Nigerian singer, Chukwudi Ezeagwa, popularly known as Shakar EL, has opined that the only lifestyle poor people know is iPhone and Benz.
Taking to his Insta-stories to air his opinion, Shakar EL noted that a poor person would rather spend thousands on an iPhone than spend money on things that will enable them to live a comfortable life.
According to him, such people would spend 500K to get the latest iPhone while rocking the same set of clothes for years.
“Some people Dey use iphone wey be like 500k but dem dey sleep on top foam wey be like Rock stone… You see why you no fit fresh and u go dey use a million filters for social media… The only lifestyle poor people know is iphone and Benz…Dem go still dey wear same old pants, boxers, bra, use same onld towel and toothbrusj year in year out.
They only bother about things that the public will see…Before you buy that new iphone abeg buy new towels, change yiur toothbrus, buy new bedsheets, buy new pants, boxers, bra, etc.” He wrote.
