Someone sent me a Dm today and asked me to register with lion share so that they can double my money in 30 minutes. He said that the stuff is real, original, profitable and Holyghost filled bla bla bla.
I didn’t even argue with his bald gbangola head and the story for the gods he was reciting. The speed with which I pressed the block button was a case of transferred aggression because of what MMM did to me.
In 2016 when I was serving, I worked at two places and was still doing home lessons for some children in Wuse 2. My routine was my PPA in the morning, private job in the afternoon and lesson for about six children in the evening.
Some days, my throat will be so dry with nothing to rinse the mouth with except roasted yam, ponmo and onion stew.
The aim was to save up enough money, move out of NCCF family house, get a juicy accommodation and furnish the house with the electrical gadgets of my dreams.
I planned to buy TV, microwave, washing machine, DSTV, toaster, fridge and everything buyable from that my golden savings. This was my motivation and I worked so hard at it shuttling jobs and denying myself all the necessities of life.
In the seventh month of service, I had almost 300k in my account and was feeling like the queen mother of all the Abuja corpers.
This was the time when MMM was a king in the heart of Nigerians. People had been talking about the money doubling scheme but I wasn’t moved with the whole money thing.
What finally changed my mind was one day that my friend Jonah received an alert that almost tripled his savings in just a month or thereabout. He talked me into MMM and I agreed because of his seeing is believing alert!
As an overzealous recruitee, I created one account with my email, created another account with my mum’s own and another one with another persons account so I could spread the money and chop the registration bonus on the three of them.
God should have sent angel Lazarus to warn me about investing my hard earned money into the devil’s nest but He was looking at me from one corner of Heaven. He wanted me to learn a financial lesson that will shape my entire existence.
As there was no warning, few days after I joined the investment gang, I started hearing one rumour that MMM went on break bla bla bla. I almost ran mad.
I called my MMM mentor and he was telling me to calm down because MMM just freezed for internal maintenance and that they will come back to life after the festive season.
That December was spent with my heart inside my mouth. I was always refreshing my MMM page to see the audio money growing in leaps and bounds. It was hell because I was seeing money that I could not touch or withdraw.
To cut the long story short in righteousness, I never saw one naira of my money or the interest that MMM promised me. I put in all my 300k.
If you had known me in January of that year, anybody that greeted me just good morning or how was your night became my enemy and the cause of my woes. I couldn’t tell anyone that I had such money because I was always forming broke.
I was even stingy to myself and everybody. For years, I kept wishing that I had even chopped the money or helped someone with it.
So now that I have gathered small sense, if you ever enter my DM to talk about doubling any money, I will submit your name to my Pastor as one of the people that want to destroy my life through gamble.
Dear Lionshare or any yeye scheme, I don’t want to double money or triple anything even if you will do it in 30 minutes or take 9 months to born the money, I am not interested.
Lemme repeat it now…trailer will not fall on you, stray stone will not miss road to knock your head o. Please don’t send me any 30,000 offer to get 1 million.
As it is now eehhhhhn, smartwork and honest money is the spinal cord and ozone layer of my existence. It is the blessing of God that maketh rich and adds no headache to it.
