it is my own personal view  
( and i guess i am entitled to my views just as everyone else is entitled to their own views )
that

inspite of and despite all these things NIGERIA RESIDENTS are saying about STRIPPER or no STRIPPER,
PORN ACTOR / ACTRESS / STAR or no PORN ACTOR / ACTRESS / STAR
INFLUENCER? or no INFLUENCER?,

it looks like,
IN REAL TERMS,
and
IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS,

for most of the population here in Nigeria,
THE SOCIAL ACCEPTABILITY and ANY OTHER ACCEPTABILITY of a PERSON
as well as
THE SOCIAL RESPECTABILITY and ANY OTHER RESPECTABILITY conferred on a PERSON

is essentially a function of

HOW MUCH MONEY THE PERSON EARNS,

HOW MUCH MONEY THE PERSON CAN EARN,

HOW MUCH MONEY THE PERSON HAS,

HOW MUCH MONEY THE PERSON COMMANDS or

HOW MUCH MONEY THE PERSON HAS ACCESS TO

WHETHER OR NOT A PERSON CAN PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE  

HOW WELL OR NOT A PERSON CAN PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE

WHETHER OR NOT A PERSON CAN MEET THE NEEDS OF i.e SUPPORT DEPENDANTS

HOW WELL OR NOT A PERSON CAN MEET THE NEEDS OF i.e SUPPORT DEPENDANTS

irrespective of
ANY OTHER PRETENCES? and
ALL OTHER CURRENT AND HISTORICAL PRETENCES?
of Nigeria People and Nigeria Residents to the contrary.

yeah.

regarding the general values of Nigeria citizens and Nigeria residents,
back in the day here in Nigeria in the 1970s
folks used to seem to have

● opinions,
● airs,
● attitudes
● and maybe also? finite? value systems ?

i mean, for example, a discussion could be going on and the topic would shift to a person and someone would say of that person, for example :

“oh ! he/she has 4 cars now. he/she just bought a new car yesterday. ”

or something like :

“ he/she has built 3 houses now. he/she invited people to an opening ceremony for the latest one just this last Saturday i.e this Saturday just gone by. ”

and some folks would say .. in a rather superior manner? ..

“ what does he/she do for a living ? ”
“ how does he/she get all that money ? ”
“ what does he/she do to get all that money ? ”

●● this ( i.e the 1970s ) was a period when parents and guardians advised their children and wards to study “ professional courses ” meaning specifically to study

█ Medicine & Surgery
█ Engineering .. if you were essentially more mathematically inclined
█ Law .. if you were arts inclined

or any course close to them if they could not get directly into those subjects
e.g
█ Biochemistry, Microbiology, etc,
for those wanting to study Medicine & Surgery but were not able to get admission to study Medicine & Surgery

█ Physics, Mathematics, etc
for those wanting to study Engineering but were not able to get admission to study Engineering

█ Political Science, History, etc
for those wanting to study Law but were not able to get admission to study Law

●● at that period i.e in the 1970s, students were generally advised to opt for the sciences over the arts
and any student who had any sort of ability to cope with the sciences was in the absence of extenuating circumstances →→→

( e.g his parent or guardian may be a lawyer and want him/her to study law so that he/she can take over the running of the law chambers in the future )

→→→ generally strongly advised to go for the sciences rather than for the arts.

●● at this period University graduates and Polytechnic graduates often used to select which one of any number of sometimes as many as 5 or 6 jobs they were offered that they would like to do.

●● and it was common place for a fresh University or Polytechnic graduate to buy a brand new car

.. usually the french Peugeot 504 then ..

Peugeot 504 Anniversary

within a few months of securing a job probably with some aid such as a car loan from the outfit he/she is/was employed by.

●● this was a period when Nigeria residents used to say that :

“ A GOOD NAME IS BETTER THAN MONEY ”

“ A GOOD NAME IS WORTH IT’S WEIGHT IN GOLD ”
