I have been having this big question about how we behave in ceremonies, MOSTLY Nigerians.

Personally, i think the idea of throwing money and announcing donation amounts in ceremonies is a very awkward practice. The funniest thing is; they have taken it to d church.
The harvest i attended last Sunday, they turned it to money competition, just imagine in the house of God. I just picked myself and moved out.

The fact is; Giving / Gifts ought to be between the giver and receiver, thats all.

I don't spray money or announce any donations i make. Whatever i have, i drop quietly and move, if i don't have anything,i show face 4 ur ceremony and move, I LIVE TO MPRESS ONLY GOD.

I am currently in a function and the thing is just pissing me off.
One bad thing i noticed is; The higher your money, the higher the claps and cheers, very bad indeed.
Clapping heavily for som1 that worth more than 5million, donating 100k and less for the one that has ONLY 20k home and Abroad while donating 5k, is FOOLISHNESS TO ME.

One thing i like about my landlord is; his simplicity and low key giving, Nigga amazes me everytime. The gentle man has more than 50 people he pays school fees for, he donates and contribute heavily in d community his charity work is extremely amazing but u wud NEVER know. That is how it ought to be.
A gift that is sounded and announced is no longer a gift to me.

Pls for those of u that have travelled abroad, is this bad behaviour also rampant there?

I have never done ANY Bday with d hope of getting gifts, infact is only my sists. And few of my guys dat took me out on diff. Bday.

Gifts ought to come by surprise and between only two parties and not the ones people announce up and down in order to get accolades.

After d ceremony ystrday, a lot of ladies were hailing d big spenders there, just this morning; a colleague was telling me He had to withdraw his last 10k to spend there, i asked; Y didn't u spend ONLY 5k and keep ur change, d mugu said; Y wud he spend 5k, when others were balling high.
I just looked at the fool and others dat goes about seeking social validation. Mumu full dis country.

I went to one Christ Embassy, 2015 and d pastor said; a lot of people are insulting God with their meagre offerings, that 2day, he wud monitor the money pipo wud drop. As pipo were giving theirs, he was looking at everyone of them. I sat on my chair and gave nothing, immediately after the offering; i picked my body and left.
Me that trekked almost 20mins to attend service, he was making me to feel like a fool. Y e enor come force me 4 my chair go give offering.

You live to empress God, but others live to impress humans, these people can never give you 1000 inside that church if you beg them of help but, they will donate one hundred million in the church, if they want to impress their crush in a party that is what they do. This set of people are owing school fees of their children and their wife's are looking dirty and they don't care.

It is a cultural thing in Nigeria. It makes the "sprayer" feel important and also makes the recipient feel flattered.

It is a Cultural thing that we have elevated to another level.

It is disgusting to say the least, but we live in a world eager to show off, to compete in order to say Look here i live better than you, my Life is better than yours.

Morally depraved and low-self esteemed Nigerians generally like showing off even if they don't have anything, and that attitude irritates me.

It is the same reason you'll want to use an iPhone albeit you can't afford it.

Here in the US, nobody gives a damn about impressing others by spraying or publicly bragging about money, not even the celebrities.

But when Nigerians come here, they bring that crazy attitude and start spraying money at events.
