Of late, KTN news anchor, Yvonne Okwara has been imparting knowledge to anyone who cares to listen.
From warning young girls from falling for unscrupulous men to relationship advise for those already in long term unions.
Using her Facebook page, she has turned her attention to young men who are self proclaimed party animals who have to turn-up daily or every weekend.
She has advised young girls not to even look at a guy who doesn’t have a vision. Adding, “Think longterm.”
“If you are a single man, you are in your late 20’s- early 30’s and don’t have at least USD 5,000 in your savings account or in any investment asset, then this period in your life is NOT the period to be going to the club, making it rain, popping the bottles, getting turned up or spending your salary taking side-chics to KFC for lunch. This is the period in your life when you should be increasing your income, protecting your savings and laying the foundation for a strong financial destiny for your upcoming wife and kids.”
Yvonne added, “You may object that you want to enjoy your life today, but 10 years from now your wife and kids should not have to suffer due to your failure to think longterm today. 10 years from now, the accumulative amount of money you spend monthly on popping bottles and women will have been enough to pay for your 5 year old kid’s school fees at a good Junior School. Think Longterm.”
Mafans and team mafisi reacted.
