If you are anything like me, January has gone on for 80 days already. I was listening to FireBoy’s album the other day and I thought that some lyrics make a good cry for help. Here are some that resonated with me.
1 From the song Vibration – *”Egba mi, o pari oh”
*Someone save me, it is finished.
This was my reaction while checking my balance throughout December. I kept on asking: “who spent all this money?” Somebody send help!
2) Gbas Gbos from the song Gbas Gbos
Friend: How is your bank account like?
Me: Gbas Gbos. The usual.
3) “We go go America on a midnight train” – From the song What if I say
This is a financial red flag. Firstly, we don’t have a functional railway system in Nigeria. Secondly, we don’t have trains that go to America from here. Thirdly, if you enter midnight train in Nigeria, what you see is what you get.
4) “I am just trying to survive, I just want to win” – From the song Wait and See
This was my motto all through University.
5) *”If I say I should talk, where will I start my story from?” – From the song Energy
*Ti ba ni ki soro, melo ni mo fe so gan.
This is my reaction when people ask me anything about the situation of my finances. Where do I start from exactly?
