In a recent Twitter conversation, Akin Alabi said:
10 years ago, I thought that if I had what I have today, I wouldn’t worry about money ever again. Today, my money worries are so much that I can’t think straight sometimes. I need money like mad.

In response, Jason Njoku tweeted:
When I was broke I had all these things I wanted to do when I had money. Now i'm not broke I literally do non of them. I actually find money a burden. I plan to give away most of it before I die. Kids are getting $0.00. They can manage with a good education and their parents. https://t.co/SR10JUrIku
