The Inside Gist: The Lagos Babe Life on a ₦30k Salary and Fine Girl Benefits

[When I saw “₦30k salary” in the title, I honestly thought it was a mistake. My
brain is still struggling to understand how living a Lagos babe life and a ₦30k salary can be in the same sentence. Alas, it wasn’t a mistake.]

Hi Ama. This #LoveCurrency story looks like there must’ve been
much to cover during the interview — from asexuality to dating multiple men. How was it?

Yeah, the interview was really long. We started on WhatsApp, moved to a fifteen-minute video call on Meet, before returning to WhatsApp. It was a lot.

Is it just me who feels the main boyfriend should know she has side pieces? Like, how’s she always buying him gifts on a ₦30k salary?

Right? But he actually doesn’t know. She said something about dumping men the moment they found out she had other men. Like, she’d just cut them off and keep it moving.

Interesting. It’s how she calls the men “income sources” for me. Dfkm.
