Yes, big time bloggers have been moving to Banana Island. There, they rub shoulders with the super rich. But I want to let you in on one little secret.
If you have just hit your first big money, it might be tempting to buy/rent a house on Banana island.
But, unless that money is guaranteed to reproduce itself quickly, think twice before you do. The rich also cry. What do I mean?
The utility bill you’ll pay in one month could be up to N500, 000! In some parts of Nigeria, people consider a N5000 NEPA bill a rip off!
N500, 000 is enough to rent an entire flat for a year in many parts of Nigeria.
But in Banana Island, that is just what you are likely to see in your NEPA bill for the month! If you don’t pay, they will cut your light kiakia.
Many who moved into Banana Island without getting this insider info are regretting it right now. But they are ‘suffering and smiling’. Forced to keep up appearances.
Most who live on this island will not tell you this. But I will tell you, so that in case you want to move in, you know what you are getting into.
