A regular salary earner is never a big boy/girl. Checkout d bank employees who basically live in self deceit calling themselve big this n that but will heckle @ pples bank balances. After retirement or lost of employment d so called 'Big' becomes so small dat they hide from social events.

@tuniski, man you said it all. I concur to all you said. A monthly earner is never big, no matter the income!

I think it has to do with the geographical location of the person. For instance, someone living in Anambra that earns about 50K a month can still be living large since most of the house rents are between 10k-15k i.e 3bedrooms, 1parlour,kitchen and toilet(nice apartment). Compare that to someone living in Lagos or Abuja, with that kind of payment, you might still be managing.

So the best answer to the question is there is no answer to the question

50k for self, pads, boxers, recharge cards
50k for randy outings
100k for kids care
100k for rentals, Phcn, Dstv inclusive
100k for orgaized funs & home meals
30k for small small environ gifts
40k for petrol & car care
30k for driver's/babe's official pay
100k SAVINGS
A big boy goes with a clout & aura.
He neither fights in pub nor for N10 change
A minimum of N600k qualifies, even then you will still support with big grammar at check points

I don't understand all this talk about big boy/big girl!

Must we compete with anybody? I prefer to earn N150k, have my peace and quiet existence than to be a billionaire, and my name will always be in the news for one court case or another, or associated with one filthy politician or one dirty oil deal or the other.

That is how my family grew up and I enjoyed it then, and I surely will like to enjoy it now.

"Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity." - Ecc 12:8. "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Matt 16:26. "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." - Matt 6:19-21, (also, John 6:27)

@Hischild d biggest vanity is religion. What will it profit a man to , and lose his soul dats wat they say but we are living witnesses to how the congregations grew leaner while d pastors grow fatter on poor brainwashed followers. By d way living well is not vanity!
Re: How Much Monthly Salary Can Give One 'Big Guy/Girl' Status In Nigeria? by HISchild: 5:01pm On Nov 05, 2011
@tuniski, - friend, i hear you and truly the new testament churches are at their end,  "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?" - 1 Pet 4:17 

thus, i do not subscribe to any pastor, church or any man, only GOD and HIS infallible word (Heb 4:12).  Having honest material wealth is a blessing, my point basically is that one ought not set one's mind / heart on them. Therein lies the folly, because we came forth unclad and we cannot carry anything away. 
----
"And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:  And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?  So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God." - Luk 12:16-21

"But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." - 1 Tim 6:9-10

why are you all cracking your heads? big guy/girl is a thing of the mind. At least there are people earning same as you yet they look so poor when they stand next to you.they think you have got some external cash coming in. they might even have more than you do in the bank.you sayit as though it were and it registers in the mind. from there, you are either big or broke. grin grin grin grin grin grin grin grin

Who exactly is a big boy, Certainly not the guys riding around in cars bought on credit and houses on mortgage. Dem plenty I tell you dont be deceived by all this big boy BS. If you can afford to live in a modest flat in a decent neighbourhood, drive a simple airconditioned car, put your kids in an average private school, have a job or business and earn an income. You are a middle class Nigerian with potential to go higher and thats enough.
Re: How Much Monthly Salary Can Give One 'Big Guy/Girl' Status In Nigeria? by MyneWhite1(f): 1:41am On Nov 08, 2011
When you have wealth, maybe from your parents, you can call yourself a big boy. Otherwise, save and invest your 500k - 1million a month and live moderately.
Re: How Much Monthly Salary Can Give One 'Big Guy/Girl' Status In Nigeria? by drfomsky(f): 12:49pm On Nov 09, 2011
What is your definition of a big girl or boy? I think that if you have a personal sense of style, you can be a big boy or girl at any income level. After all, some people have money but I don't consider them big boys or girls because they have to style! Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

Hahaha 4K/month. You think so? That is almost what new international graduates earn at standard chartered naija, and many of them cannot claim to be big boys/girls. They are just okay.

By the way, what are the axioms that constitute a big boy/girl? We need to start from here.

Bros, 4k dols is about 600k o, no be small money o, it should be okay for a young and fresh boy that has little or no responsibility nw

Btw, i think when you dont spend all but half of your salary per month, and you are okay,mind you, the basics are there like a mansion, an expensive car, and good wears, you are a big boy.

This is not a lie, but you will be shocked to hear the tales of some of these people.

By the way, try to apply for standard chartered bank's international graduate program next year. International graduate does not mean someone with a foreign degree; it means someone that will be trained to work at any of the bank's branches in Asia, Europe, Middle East.

The pay is around 4k dollars/month. This is not bad.

Tales because they live extravagant and credit life, no saving but large spending habits.

"Big Boy" from my understanding (maybe limited) means the bolded above...

From a salary of 600k, Lets say the person love clubbing every Friday night = 4 Fridays a month, the least you can spend in a night clubbing would be 100k. Times 4 weeks, this is 400k, leaving 200k for the other "Big Boy Things" like rent on the Island,Fuelling and maintaining two or more vehicles, Brazilian (& other expatriate) Hair for d babes, Allowances, etc etc...

Summary; $4k isn't a "Big Boy Salary"

I dont even think a salary should be used to try to impress others, it only lasts for maybe 35 years of service or till ur 65 so it should be invested wisely for when it would no longer be available.
The truth is, nobody cares... Be real to yourself.
