Popular fashion blogger, Noble Igwe has blamed society for the current craze for wealth by any means possible.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, January 30, Noble said Nigerians don’t question the source of people’s wealth and celebrate them when they show off “overnight untraceable success”.
He said society even gives such people titles, preferential treatment and respect. According to him, more people will do dangerous things to also receive such treatments.
Highlighting ways in which society encourages ill-gotten wealth, the 42-year-old media personality advised Nigerians to stop celebrating questionable wealth.
This comes in the wake of young Nigerian boys engaging in online fraud and killing their loved ones for ritual purposes.
Read his full post below,
“Everyday, we are on different pages of people we know that cannot afford certain things shouting “ God when” then come here to act surprise that people are doing evil to ‘belong.
Our society does not question source of anything.
People will post three skits in a year and then post a house they just bought, people will appear in two movies then post “new me , new house”.
Thing is , we celebrate all types of questionable wealth.
In most clubs, it’s only bottle services.
They don’t sell cocktails or beer and when people other expensive drinks, music is shut down to deliver drink(s) to one person or a group.
People will kill or commit crime to get such a treatment.
The church will take donation from anyone with money, the village will crown anyone with money, no questions asked.
Families don’t ask their children how they make their money and some don’t care.
It’s the society that feeds this monster.
I need to stop now, I’m already seeing my tweets on blogs.
Remember, family is important in shaping the society and we owe it to one another to fix our homes.
Stop celebrating overnight untraceable success.”
