#MoneyByZikoko: “Who Do You Spend Most of Your Money On?”

November 21, 2022

Vol 5 | 21-11-2022

Brought to you by

Happy Monday, {$name} 🙃

So apart from yourself, who do you spend most of your money on?

Nobody? You need to change.

In two of our stories today, our subjects talk about happily spending money on their loved ones and having zero regrets because that’s what makes them happy.

After the subject on #NairaLife’s dad tried to kill himself because of debts in 2019, he swore he’d make money to take care of his family.

And omo, he’s making money.

In this letter:

  • The Heartwarming #NairaLife of a 23-Year-Old Breadwinner
  • The Love Currency: A Long-distance relationship in Ibadan and Lagos on a ₦30k salary
  • Money Meanings: “Black Tax”
  • Game: #HowMuchLast
  • Where The Money At?!

#NairaLife: The Heartwarming #NairaLife of a 23-Year-Old Breadwinner

The 23-year-old software quality assurance engineer on this week’s #NairaLife makes over $5k monthly. His salary was ₦50k at the beginning of the year.

Of all the reasons he’s happy about his new income, being able to take care of his family comes first.

He doesn’t consider giving his parents ₦250k monthly black tax, though. In fact, he wants to do more.

Find out why he embraces black tax

The Love Currency: A Long-distance relationship in Ibadan and Lagos on a ₦30k salary

My favourite part of this story is Feyi* playfully protesting that her boyfriend complains when she impulsively buys something for herself, but doesn’t when she gets him a spontaneous gift. Who no like better thing?

An excerpt: “I think the reason he doesn’t like me spending so much is because he doesn’t have plenty money himself. He’s still in university, and it’s me who normally sends him money.
