I will have to confess that as a child growing up, I was not too fond of wealthy people. I think all over the world, there is just this disdain and automatic assumption that the wealthy either stole wealth from the less privilege and are simply undeserving of the wealth. While there are some societies where that may very well be true, in becoming an adult and seeing the world a bit better, I have had an attitude adjustment.
I have met very hardworking poor persons as well as wealthy persons.
I believe that being wealthy has a lot to do with the state of mind i.e. the power of belief, among other important factors.
If you work hard for your wealth and you live in Nigeria, should your children walk around apologizing for your success? Should they feel bad about it??
In any event, despite his hard work and accomplishments, many in the public continue to sweep Davido’s achievements under the rug in one statement, “your father got you there.”
Davido recently let his frustration out by addressing this issue on social media. What are your thoughts?
Is Davido wealthy because of his father’s wealth? Should children from wealthy Nigerian families accept the fact that the doors open for them because of whose children they are?
p.s. Filed under Artist Heatlh because it clearly affects the psyche of this young man to have to defend himself or be forced to distance himself from his father’ s wealth, all the time.
