Last time, we discussed about "Football"

Thank you all for sharing your lovely opinions. We had about 400+ comments, 60 comments away from breaking our ATH.


Some months ago, I thought, I shared and I asked "Why don't we Chat on hive every Weekend?"

And you all said...

Well, we won't be the first as there are some weekend engagement trends already on Hive! But this would be THE NIGERIAN VERSION!

Topic Of Discussion - Money or Fame

Today's topic is simple, Money or fame - Pick one and tell us why.

Would u like to be famous even though it doesn't translate to being wealthy?

Or will you like to be rich and not being known?

Fun fact: The second visited Youtuber in the world with over 100 Million subscribers is not so wealthy. Why? Because he donates his money out every month.

He does this because he already enjoys being famous and says he doesn't need to be super rich.

untitled.gif

What do you think?

Let's have fun.. Gist, love and learn!


Special Prize

untitled.gif

There would be 1 HBD going to one person who invites someone new to join us courtesy of @ksam

Note: The person must be Nigerian and must make at least two comments in this post.

Feel free to tag your friends that have also been away... Soon the prizes will get bigger!

(@hopestylist won 2 Hive last week for inviting @olawalium)

I will add it to my self-development post. I broke the record!

I just don't want to joke with my posting routines. I've written 16days in a row since I started posting within a time frame.

I just don't want this to stop or interfere with my routine, but yeah, this might be d earliest ever.

Hmm, that's really nice, keep it up. It's not really easy to start something like that and still keep up with it. I'm more impressed seeing that you are even getting better at mastering your routine, wow.

I have a question oo, why is it that you don't join in the engagement? In fact I'm inviting you to join this weekend engagement if you don't mind, I will love to see what you have to say 🙃.

Interesting!!! I'm so confused sha, but I think I will choose fame because for me having money without knowing anyone is not going to be fun at all.

I can't even imagine being rich or wealthy and I don't know people or people don't even care whether or not I exist, ah!! No oo, I will go with fame.

@belleflower and @iskafan what do you think about this week's hive naija weekend engagement question? Please make ona come put mouth for the matter oo.

Funny thing is some people live lives that disagrees with this, they will rather kill for fame, hoping that fame will bring more money, sadly their fame only ends after their relevance fades and someone else outshines them.

That's true to some extent, well the Bible said good name is better than riches, my being famous will be for something good not bad so, I will still choose fame sir 😢.

Everybody is wanting to make me feel like I choose wrong but no!!! I will stick to fame, when you have money if I come and beg you will you refuse me? 🥺

You gave it a beautiful look when you mentioned national theatre , you couldnt have helped it. Those guys are famous and really dont have much to live on, most of them survive on Church and are suffering from chronic diseases. That was not because they werent rich at a time, they had money, but an important aspect of wealth includes wisdom to keep making it. They had lacked this wisdom, enjoyed their money from movie hits and never considered days of yore, the other day we were considering who designed the flag of Nigeria and who wrote the national anthem, their work overshadows them, but who can remember their names.

I believe with money, you can have the influence you need and knock on doors. When you have money, you don't even need to leave your comfort zone, they will be the one looking for you. Yes, fame is good but knowing who I am, I don't really fancy it. I would stick with money.

Abegi, what will I carry fame and do. I will take money jorh. My unborn generation has to have something to start off with.

Fame won't put food on the table for me, my husband, and my children. Fame won't send them to school.

In short, with money comes influence.... Look around Hive, and you'll understand what rules the world.

So, if you ask me, I would want both money and fame. But I already know that it's tiring to have both, so I'll stick with money. If fame follows then, I'll still take it.

Lol she said if fame follows then I will still take it
Fame announces as a person I see why one needs to be famous if it does not pay bills
Rather you'd just be the talk of the town and still broke....nahhhh
Money it is.
Lol
How have you been?

Hmm, that's where you got it wrong, when you are the talk of town it is for a reason so we just have to be famous for something good and trust me, you won't go hungry, not even your generation 👌❤️.

Omo
We have some hungry people that have fame
They won't tell you this
They will want to live to that standard therefore getting more financial issues to sort out

I don't want to be like that sha, I want to be true to myself and others as well but I'm human after all so fingers crossed 🤞🤞.

Hmm, you've made really good points on why you think money is the best option, well one thing you fail to see was that you being famous does not mean you are poor, you still work and because you are famous, you easily get opportunities that will help you become rich with time.

Go girl, go get the money while I get the fame, we will be of great help to ourselves 🥰🥰.

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your comment on the hive naija weekend engagement question, it's a really great pleasure to see your contribution.

It all depends on what we want to think Eddy, I chose fame because I want fame, I can't really give an exact reason why because everyone is choosing money so let me just choose fame abeg, lol 😂😂.

I choose wealth over fame, sincerely from the bottom of my heart, if it were possible to live without interacting with anyone, I would be doing that rn, my mentor @hopestylist is already aware of my inability to wanna interact with people both in person and on social media platforms, this is like the only social media platform where I strive to talk and associate with people.
I would rather be wealthy than famous 😁
What do you guys think 🤔

That's a good one my dear, it's really hard to just choose a particular one but think we all have reasons for doing what we do so I think your choice is okay especially when I look of the type of personality you have.

Being wealthy is still a good thing, I know you will still know me by then so, I'm very happy, the money go reach me, lol.

Definitely dear, Infact the money is for all of us to enjoy and somehow money brings company, weather genuine or not, it comes with a lot of companionship and with the economy of Nigeria, you will definitely be famous with a little change at hand, talk less of wealth.
Although that is not my aim sha, but as the saying goes, ‘if them put two thing’s for ground, you go pick one’
This is me picking one 😁

Nice choice. But the reality is, the two g together. Unless being famous here, requires one to be by the whole world but that's not how Merriam-webster defined the term 'famous", as it didn't specify the range one must be known to attain the status of being famous. So, you can be famous if you're known for the good things you have been doing in your state.

The philanthropist are good but some do what they do to get the glory to themselves but that's not really good.

Although so many people don't do it to get the glory and that's still the thing with fame too.

Some people have fame because of the little things they do out of freewill will others do it out of necessity.

No matter how you try to hide your good it will still come out but it should not be made known to others by ourselves and in turn you will start having fame, you see?

Exactly, according to what samositically asked the question, that was why I choose fame over money.

You are absolutely right, the two goes together, as long as you have money, fame will surely find you and vice versa.

You sure don't know there are billionaires in Nigeria which we don't know their names? They will get a level of fame based on their influence, yes, but not everyone wants the public eye. What you said you want is public eye, it doesn't mean everyone wants that. Yes, you will be known based on those you are using to front but it's unlike those who want to be in the public eyes.
