Former BBNaija housemate, Ifu Ennada, has disclosed how and when she made her first million, stating that it was at the age of Twenty Two.
Ifu said this, following her post that N500k given to her by Soso Soberekan was not a huge amount and this elicited reactions from different people.
The entrepreneur took to her Instagram page to also apologise to her fans for telling them to change their circle of friends if no one could give them N500k without sex.
She further explained that what she meant was that being from a poor background does not mean staying poor or having a poor mentality. She wrote;
“Pls Read…Some people were angered by a section of my last post – where I talked about 500k not really being a huge sum and how I feel having someone in your circle who can give that to you isn’t abnormal. Some even asked if I had people who could give me that kind of money before BBNaija…
“First of all I’m sorry if I cut across the wrong way. It wasn’t my intention to be that way.
“And yes to your questions; long before BBNaija I had people in my life who gave me 500k… My short film – Tears of a Broken Virgin was brought to life after a friend of mine gave me 500k to produce it. His name is Solomon. This was 2yrs before Big Brother. You can watch my short film by clicking the link in my bio.
“My beautIFU people, being broke doesn’t mean you should also surround yourself with people in the same financial state as you.
“You can be broke but have rich dreams and in order to bring your dreams to reality it’s always good to include people who have the capacity to move your life forward in your circle.
“For people to lavishly support your dreams they need to see why they should, there has to be something you’re bringing to the table.
I was a financially poor girl with big dreams but I was always working on myself, being resourceful and adding value to people even the rich… one day I’ll tell you how I made my first 1.8 million at age 22 – even though money was mismanaged”
