“No matter how you sugarcoat it, you’re a thief” Georgina Onuoha tells fraudsters

Georgina Onuoha took to Instagram to criticize those who engage in fraud and call it hustle.

The former Nollywood actress advised people to make legitimate money and told fraudsters that they are thieves, irrespective of how they try to twist the truth.

Georgina Onuoha wrote:


“End of discussion. Hustle and earn with pride. There is respect and dignity in labor that you built and worked for with honesty and truthfulness.

Stop worshiping criminals stealing money meant to build roads, hospitals, schools, clean water, electricity and basic infrastructure in your communities and country.

Remember that that slay Queen you are worshiping on social is eating money given to her by public office holders meant to pay your fathers retirement and pay doctors and teachers so they don’t go on strike in your community.

Until we begin to differentiate between ill gotten wealth and actual wealth built on integrity, we will continue to be our own worst nightmare.

Have a fabulous day/night my darling Ginafam. Hustle with pride and integrity and may our creator bless the works of our hands.

Fraud is not hustle. Manipulating others to make illicit money is not hustle. No matter how you sugarcoat it, you are a thief.”

My Take:

Until we redefine the word ‘hustle’ in Nigeria, things won’t change. A lot of Nigerians can do anything illegal to make money and claim it’s hustle. The way that word has been bastardize is a cause for concern.

Someone swindles another person during a business transaction, Nigerians will claim the thief is a hustler. Someone lies to obtain money from the public, people call it hustle.

A man or woman steals from the government, their supporters will claim they are hustling because everybody is a thief in Nigeria. Sighs.

This is why things won’t get better in this country. The way people support criminals and criminal activities over people making legit money shows how decayed this society is. We can do better as a people.
