The belief of an average Nigerian is that as a kid or a teenager, you are still under the watch or sponsorship of the parents or guardian, thereby depending solely on them.
But in the world today, we all know the world has turned 360 degrees. With high level of advancement in science and technology, adults are in competition with one another and the same is true for little kids of the internet age.
As the adults are making money, the kids are making theirs too with no constrictions.
Though, some of these children become rich and famous with the influence of their parents but the fact that some other rich children work for their money cannot be disputed.
The words of Franklin D. Roosevelt says “Happiness is not in the possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creating efforts”.
Some of these children created their efforts and realized their wealth, the likes of Emmanuella of Mark Angel Comedy and others cannot but be mentioned.
