Nigerian singer, songwriter Enitimi Alfred Odom, popularly known by his stage name Timaya, has given out some advice through his Instagram page.
It is a known fact that some people in the society today exaggerate their wealth and happiness to meet up with the standards of the society and create an impression of a perfect life but this style of living is increasingly being condemned. Timaya is advising against it.
According to Timaya; “Wear the clothes you can afford. Eat the food you can afford. Drink the alcohol you can afford. Buy the car you can afford. Have the wedding you can afford.
Don’t go broke and in debt trying to impress people. Live within your means.”
In simply means, be content with what you have.
On social media, random users and celebrities like KCEE, Oge Okoye, Skiibii and very recently, Kizz Daniel have come under fire for different cases that relates to exaggeration, and in some cases, attempt at deceiving the general public, perhaps to boost their reputation or earn them some good will. However, Timaya, via his post, is saying such lifestyle should stop.
