The rate of online begging is becoming disturbing. The entitlement mentality beggars’ display towards celebrities is beginning to get to these celebrities.
Omoni Oboli was forced to address an online beggar who wouldn’t stop begging on every post made by the celebrity. Using her own experience, Omoni advised the young lady and other people like her, to hustle hard. According to her, if she had the money to buy data to beg, she could as well gather the money to start a small business.

@bleble808 darling, I’m not in any way bashing you or knocking your hustle. I never respond to these comments but I’m responding maybe because you commented under this post about getting up and doing something. You drop this same comment on pretty much all my posts which means you have money to buy data but that’s not where I’m going.
If you gather all the 1k I’m sure people have been sending you, you can start something. No matter how small. Let me motivate you. Forget packaging o, I have sole Okrika (second hand clothes) in this Lagos. I used to cook from my house, pack up the food and take to different offices to sell as lunch. I cooked for occasions all by myself even with 9 months pregnancy. I used to stand up for hours pregnant with swollen feet to weave and braid hair for money.
My advice to you young lady because from your pictures, you are young and healthy, is not to waste your life being a professional beggar. Stand up and do something. God bless you as you do.
These are the issues…
I have never responded to begging comments ever because I know firsthand that we’ve all needed a little assistance and maybe even still do so we have to ask but…
You are asking for assistance for what exactly? What is the end game? Is it to start a business that will eventually give you some financial freedom? If so, fantastic! I applaud you!
When it becomes a lifestyle is when it gets worrisome. How do you for months or years drop the same comment on hundreds or thousands of posts? It reminds me of those days nicely dressed guys would come to you outside business places and say they lost their wallet and they just needed transport fare. You will then know you’ve been had, when the same guy meets you the following week with the exact same story. It’s now online.
We all know country hard. Leave o, it’s really hard for many people and we try in our small capacity to help as many people as we can…But if you are an able bodied young person, think of what you can do and then you can beg for the money to do it. I know free money is sweet. Believe me, as hard as I work for my money, the kind of dance I dance when I get free money nor be here but…there’s dignity in making your own money. Dignity in doing something that will not only give you money but bring satisfaction and fulfillment.
My darling young lady deleted her comment after my response to her. Luckily I had screenshot it. I had thought she would come to my DM asking for assistance to start something but she deleted her comment. What does that tell you?
Please my fellow hustlers, nobody owes anybody anything! Stand up and do something! God bless our hustle.
