Recently, Nigerian hip-hop artiste and social commentator Erigga has shared some financial advice for Nigerians during this period of economic hardship.
With the shortage of naira felt nationwide, Erigga argued that it is important for everyone to take charge and monitor their financial life more strictly.
Drawing on his own experience, the singer believes that it is important for people to be prudent with their expenditure as relying too much on others in times of distress might not be a viable option. He believes that in the long run, it is important to plan ahead, noting that very often, people might wake up in their 30’s and look back to realize they have achieved practically nothing.
This message shared by the artist offers great insight into the importance of personal responsibility and financial prudence in times of hardship. By putting more oversight over budgets, households can arm themselves against economic turmoil more effectively. Similarly, setting clear goals and objectives can help people to evaluate how well they are keeping their financial status on track, and how far away they are from achieving their goals.
From this, it is clear that Erigga’s advice is both valuable and timely.
The rapper wrote; “Please monitor your financial life strictly. It’s hard to find help when you are down….“
He added; “You people gonna wake up at 35 and realize all you did was impress the streets.”
