Are you scared of family and friends blowing up your phone with calls and billing you for every little thing? What you need is a way to keep knowledge of your wealth away from them.

These five tips should do the trick.

1. Make “God when” your motto

If you see anything like an expensive car, don’t make the mistake of opening your mouth to say you can afford it. Simply shout “God when” in your most pitiable voice.

2. Disown them

You might not be able to hide the fact that you have money from all your family and friends, so just disown them. It’s not by force to have friends in this life. You’ll be fine.

3. Don’t tell them the exact price of things you buy

If you buy a wig of 85k, tell them you bought it 10k, because next thing you know, you’re buying bags of rice and paying the school fees of five extended relatives.

4. Ask them for urgent 2k

How can they have the heart to ask you for money when you yourself are in need of urgent 2k? Asides urgent 2k, ask them to send airtime and data to complete the help-my-life act.

5. Ship directly to your doorstep when you shop online

Do this only if you stay alone. The minute your package arrives, grab it and shut your door. That way, snoopy family members, neighbours or friends won’t have their face in your business.
