Also: What stops nonsense? Money.

Good morning, {$name} 🌞

I like the way today’s Naira Life subject talks about his goals. He’s trying to get to a place where ₦20m is nothing to him.

So following his lead, today’s #HowMuchLast will be an expensive item, and I cannot wait to see how much you’d pay for it.

We have a fun edition today.

In this letter:

  • Last Month in Money
  • The Grass to Grace #NairaLife of a Social Media Influencer
  • Money Meanings: What is a “Budget”?
  • Game: #HowMuchLast
  • Where The Money At?!

Last Month
In Money

Yes, that’s what 20 trillion naira looks like written out, and it’s Nigeria’s budget for 2023 as presented by our presido. Why are there so many zeroes and why is it called “Budget of Fiscal Consolidation and Transition”? We tried to look into it.

That is now the naira equivalent of one pound sterling.
Technically, this didn’t happen last month, but it’s urgent enough for us to bend the rules.

Wetin dey stop nonsense?
In the song “Stop Nonsense” Majeeed asks “Wetin dey stop nonsense?” and as we all know, the answer to that question is quite simple… Money.

You can listen on Spotify.

#NairaLife: This Social Media Influencer Will Not Rest Until ₦20m is Nothing To Him

The 25-year-old in today’s Naira Life got his first job at 16 because he wanted to help his mother out. It only paid him ₦3k for three days of work.

His father was absent and growing up wasn’t easy, but today he’s a millionaire, and for him, he hasn’t arrived until 20 million naira is chicken change to him.

Money Meanings

Game: #HowMuchLast

#HowMuchLast is a game where we show you an item and you tell us (and the world) the highest amount you’d pay for it.

Some weeks will be Okin biscuit, some others will be SUVs.

This week, we’re going big. We know a Tesla goes for $40k to $160k but we want to know the most you’d pay.

So tell us, #HowMuchLast for a Tesla.

What’s the most you’d pay for a Tesla? Tweet at us here.

Where The Money At?!

We can’t say we’re about the money and not actually help you find the money.

So we’ve compiled a list of job opportunities for you. Make sure you share this with anyone who might need it because in this community, we look out for each other.

Again, don’t mention. We gatchu.
