A Day in the Life of a Nigerian Billionaire
Every weekday is hectic for the billionaire businessman. They wake up at an ungodly hour of 7:30 am, bathe and then start the day.
After breakfast, they take care of their businesses. Most of them either have their own businesses or manage others and get paid a huge sum of money every month.
They meet with other billionaire businessmen for regular business meetings and discussions at the King's Chamber of the Lugard House. This is a massive meeting hall in the heart of Lagos Island that boasts of meeting-sized conference rooms.
Often, they go out for dinner at exclusive restaurants, they also go to fashion boutiques for shopping. Their main goal is to make money and take care of their families.
How Nigerians React to the Super-Rich
Well, there have been a few very vocal Nigerians who have been insulted by those of them who are entitled to even more wealth than the billionaires in question and are carrying their loads of privilege. A millionaire who runs a taxi company and insists on driving his own vehicle, the same one which he is supposed to sell every morning to fund his taxi company, he owns multiple properties across the country, so a Lagos based Lagos based millionaire will refuse to board a bus driven by another Lagos based Lagos based millionaire because it is beneath his station.
A couple of Nigerians who were poor and homeless have once said to me that the wealthiest people on earth are the most selfish people on earth.
