Nigerian rapper and singer, Modupe-Oreoluwa Oyeyemi Ola, known by her stage name Mo’Cheddah said being her adult in Nigeria is hard work and being an entrepreneur can be even harder.
Taking to her Instagram page, the singer recount how being an adult and entrepreneur in Nigeria makes her cry a lot.
This is me — After a goooood cry ?, I had to wipe my tears, drink tea, get on the phone and get work done.
40% of my time is spent on the phone talking, I do not wish it so but it is, I’m either talking to staff, a supplier or trying to get logistic companies to “do their job “on time because customers need their orders…
Another 40% is spent on the field, in the sun buying materials I would need or on an Okada trying to meet up with a delivery, ( I’ll post the picture soon )
The last 20% is what I have left for myself, family and other businesses I run….
.It is HARD, I cry, I cry a lot???…
that’s the only way you can survive as a Nigerian business owner….
Do not let my Instagram slay pictures deceive you, being an ADULT is HARD work, being an entrepreneur is even HARDER.
If you must chop you must work
On the brighter side, God rewards hard work … so you will always reap what you have sewn .. I’m writing this to let someone out there know it’s hard for me too … but we will survive .. PS- try drinking green tea – it makes it easier ??
