There is a building in Palmgrove, Lagos that's been under construction for 40+ years. It's dilapidated and houses drug users.

My 90-year old uncle, an incredibly successful former director at Exxon Mobil, told me the story behind the building as a cautionary tale.

According to him, the building belongs to B***y B****n, one of his contemporaries in the 1960s. He claimed that B****n was the person that started the drug trade in Nigeria. The guy introduced Cocaine to a generation of Nigerian who became addicts and miscreants in the 60s.

B***y B****n made so much money from the drug trade that several Yoruba songs from the 60s eulogized his wealth. Ebenezer Obey has a song in his honor. He was balling while the rest of them (my uncle and his friends) were struggling to build a career. B***y B****n wanted to build the house in Palmgrove as a tribute to himself. But he died before it was completed.

According to my uncle, the Karma from the families he destroyed roiled his family. They lost the wealth he built and his children became addicts and miscreants. The house he wanted to build from the pains and sufferings of drug addicts became the home of drug addicts and miscreants. That house is still unfinished 40 years later and many of his kids became miscreants who couldn't continue his vanity project.

This was the point my uncle reiterated was: "You (young people) only see snapshots of time. I have studied people over 90 years. Those who feed off the pains of others receive equivalent measures of pain and leave some suffering as inheritance for their kids.

B***y B****n was the man, until he was not. Let's be careful, guys. Karma exists.

Monetizing other people's pain brings pain our way. And the pain and suffering that boomerangs often extends across generations.

Fraud kills.

Embezzlement of road maintenance funds kills people in road accidents.

Advance fee fraud destroys lives

Drugs kill.

Gambling kills.

Note: Karma visits the pain we cause others on us and our families. We have somehow created a society that says: "Get rich or die trying"

A society that glorifies wealth above wisdom and integrity. Our music and arts literally encourages people to do anything to acquire wealth.

That's a problem.
