Sport Betting Addiction —the Great Career Killer by Alvinofnaija: 10:16am On Feb 01, 2022
One of the ills of the technological advancements of africa is sport betting.
In recent times, the sector has grown and as contributed to Africans GDP but at what cost.

Nigeria like Uganda and all other countries with large youth unemployment has seen her youth rot away and suffer greatly in the hands of sport betting.

Meanwhile, sport betting companies continues to innovate and finds ways to gain more captives by leveraging social media influencer to market the 'Product'.

Influencer like Mr Macaroni, Kiekie, Mark Angel and other key YouTubers have dedicated several videos just to promote this act.

200% bonus they call it, Cash out before the games ends, this are some of the gimmicks used by this companies.

My Friends and acquaintances have lots their allowances to this acts, they spend the lion share of their allowances on betting and beg for garri before the month ends.

Wives are losing their husbands
Children are losing their fathers
Husbands are also losing their wives
More importantly, the Nation is losing its citizens

NIGERIA, who shall save your youths from this mess?

What do think about us all calling out celebrities painting betting as a quick rich scheme?

I think betting should be part of the "No Add" business, they should rely on organic leads.

A lot of innocent people have been led astray by this people

I believe we can liken this our situation to the opioid crisis of the Americans, vunerable people get hooked to something that seems sweet and won't be able to stop.


How can we at least save the ones who wants to stop but finds it very difficult?

Personally don't believe in this addictions. Most times it's because one haven't found a strong alternative.......or a strong why not to engage in something.

I used to bet a long time ago, very active on the Nairaland bet thread in my undergraduate days. But stopped when I found better things to do and make Money online. I just stopped betting, it's been years now, and it wasn't rocket science. Even when I used to bet, I never crossed my limit

Most times na poverty, and greed dey cause this thing ..

Op I must commend you for such a wonderful post. Instagram influencers are the ones making it worse.

Even mark angel that has almost 70% of it's subscribers as children and teenagers still promote it.

Some of them do not personally gamble, but they can comfortably promote what they do not engage in.

Its a pity.

I wanna reiterate the need for gambling responsibly. As a gambler too I been here many a times, it could be difficult but you got to adhere to that shit.

Do not allow any shit fvck up your mental health.

There was a period I was loosing so much that I had to go for a break, I needed it and I did it.

So manage your funds wisely and bet for fun my nigga cos Once you get a penchant for gambling your get into a financial mess.

Once an addict, always an addict. That’s why I’m addicted to the hustle and my LOUD.


I said what I said
