One of Nollywood’s most fashionable actors, Alexx Ekubo has revealed why it’s hard to save money in Nigeria, while citing a striking reference to buttress his point.
Alexx Ekubo said one will be minding their business, thinking about life and suddenly get struck with unexpected billing.
His striking example was how he was supposed to respond after getting a message stating that his grandmother ‘swallowed a cutlass’ and needs surgery.
In Alexx Ekubo words:
“Saving money in Nigeria is hard, you’ll be minding your business in the park, thinking about your life, next thing you’ll just receive text message:
“Brother, Grandma just swallow Cutlass” they need to perform an operation on her within the next 17mins if not her blood will congeal & evaporate. Pls how do I respond to this?.”
