I worked at this exact rate and I'm tutoring two of my family members to come onboard and will also work at this rate.


If you can do better, why not employ the whole forum?

Because you were exploited at that rate many years ago doesn't make your present day exploitation justified. Is it that you never heard of inflation or you want to prove what?

No wonder Nigeria is the way it is.

Because something wrong was done to you, you must go ahead and do it to others?

Continue with your delusions.


God brought the right people I need and they work remotely and enjoy the entire process of working with me

The first will be paid 1 Million by September. Please how much do you have in your account?



Any more blackmails?

Oh, you're that inhumane slave driver/scammer.

With his impossible and fake scenario.

You make people write articles as if they are battery hens, all day and all night, while you rake in money off their sweat.

Then you offer them 1M after a year. If at all you will keep to that promise.

Develop a conscience. You're deluded.

God hates oppressors, Mr God Brought.

Sorry to say this, but whoever is still writing for you, under such unfavourable conditions, is just desperate, and sees your offer as a last resort to make some small change.


Personally, I know my worth as a writer, and the moment you made it clear to me the mode of payments, especially the N1k for 6K words, I abandoned ship immediately.

I can't stoop low, let alone; stooping so low!
Naahh....

Sb said they pay 500,000 after six months, delivering articles daily.


No bi juju bi that?


No be any juju if you have another work you're doing and you're using this as a side hustle. Many people don't see that amount even in 1yr. It's cool, you develop, enjoy yourself and make money.

I won't say my projects are about core writing per se. But project management. 6
1k for 6k words is just inconvenience fee. Please stop mixing things up


My best hand on this project will be 9 months by September, and I intend paying him off cause he has been good.

3 desperate writers. Who will be used till they grow wiser.

Only 3.

After your endless posts for over two years.

Call it whatever you may, but you know you're an exploiter and slave driver. We don't need to go back and forth on it. Who on Earth pays people after a year? September our feet.

You said they are remote, now you said they live with you. What was in your ridiculous offer you post all over the forum?

Which is it? Remote work (which you forbade) or people living with you or with themselves?

Hope you don't offer them plantain leaves in place of their unpaid labor.

Every time, how much is in my account. LMAO.

You're not making sense.

You just said you have paid out 10 million to nairalanders over the years. So why can't you pay the single individual his 80k per month?

That was how I was criticised when I started. Now the project is nearing its finishing line. Money to pay isn't problem. August September I'm paying all. Highest gets 1M


These guys were complaining the entire one year period. Yet, empty bank account and cheap blackmails

Interesting to see him operating in broad daylight.

He's going to ask you how much you have in your account.

He said he's yet to pay someone in September, now he says he's paid 3M wages.

Even the N1k for 6k words as inconvenience fee is still very poor.
Do you know what it takes to churn out original 1k words?
It is more daunting than a physical task.
I would never indulge in such self-slavery!

Sorry, 5 million. And so what?

Why can you pay nairalanders 5 million over 3years but you cannot pay a young man 80k per month? Yet you claim things are okay for you, and you are asking other nairalanders how much they have in their accounts?

Rubbish talk. I have been a content freelancer as a side hustle for years. It is unheard of to withhold payment for a year!

I have had clients pay me weekly, in amounts that ran into hundreds of pounds per week so you cant come here and be telling these tales.

In this industry, once you do the work, you demand payment immediately, with no excuses.

You are a wicked beast.

You're been pety. You made thousands of pounds weekly and is this the norm. Should it be used as a yardstick across board?

You may have good intentions, but good intentions doesn't pay the bills or bring food to the table.

Writing is mentally and physically exhausting, and you don't expect someone with responsibilities and bills to pay, to sit his a§s down, and churn out articles upon articles, just to be paid peanuts as incentives.
Where's the motivation going to come from?

It's your responsibility to make sure your writers are well taken care of, and not by a
mere promise to pay N1M by the end of their one year daunting task.

You could and should have done better with your offer.
There are no excuses really!
It was a very poor offer, and only a desperate soul will take up such a ridiculous and ludicrous contract.

I'm happy things eventually turned out well for you though, but I reiterate...it was a poor offer, and only someone desperate will grasp it without thinking about the consequences.

100 per cent agree with you! The guy would never accept that his offer was patently ridiculous. Look how he is dropping figures thinking everybody'd be impressed.

If you have all you want why are you still posting that brutal exploitative advert/scam?

People earn clean money without making noise. I have never used a human being as a slave for months without pay, and never will.

Such evil is unbecoming.

Get a conscience.

PS: People with real money make it without asking other people if they have it. Only people who poverty has lashed go about asking such an inane question.

Jobs don't come in the industry consistently with high figures. Do not judge what you don't know.


A same Nairalanders hired me to work for 6 weeks. 250,000 Words, he didn't pay, I didn't create thread, who bore the lose of 250,000 Words. Multiple that by 2 Naira Per word to see the business lose.


Nigerians like bad news. Point out my words and prove to me to be better rather than your vague vituperations


Have you ever paid 1M to a worker before in running a business to be in the shoes of whom you're condemning? Always condemning, never taking action. I dare you to hire five people on this thread and pay them 1M each after a tenure to see how difficult running a business is
