As we go towards commemorating Africa Day on the 25th of May let's remember anything is possible for us Africans.
First, I need to make one thing clear:
It’s OK to be rich. We shouldn’t feel any guilt about it!
If we’re honest with ourselves, we know that life would feel a whole lot better if we didn’t have to ever worry about making the rent, paying our kids’ school fees, affording the best things in life, or taking a refreshing vacation to a beautiful foreign destination.
The real question is: what kind of rich do you want to be?
Across Africa, there is a strong trend among the youth to ‘make it’. Almost every young person on the continent, including the very poor, wants to be rich.
I love it!
I love the ambition of our youth. I love our overwhelming belief in the possibility of becoming rich in our lifetime. Of course, it’s human nature to dream and aspire for lofty ground. And like I said, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it.
However, I have a very serious concern.
When it comes to prosperity and how wealth is acquired, it appears young people on our continent are subjected to wrong influences and ‘role models.
More will unravel as we reach Africa Day.
