There have been a series of reactions to a video of Nigerian musician Zlatan Ibile telling a street hawker begging him for money to go and hustle.
In the video, the musician is handing over N500 each to some beggars on the street. A teenage hawker also came to get N500 from him but he told the hawker to go and hustle instead of begging for money.
Reacting to the video, some Nigerians have condemned Zlatan treatment of the hawker. Below are comments culled by Naija News.
Dimmatic: “Noise maker, he gave davido 1million, and somebody hawking under the hot sun seems lazy to him. Make him no beg for donation in the future because Internet never forget”
Coded081: “Pson wen dey hawk no b hustle b dat”
The sicilian: “Everyone who has more than enough should be encouraged to give to the less privileged always. But if he decides not to give for reasons best known to him, his decision should also be respected because it’s his money.”
