So I recently came across this #ifIhad30millionnaira hashtag on twitter. My first thought was, “how random”. I wondered for a bit how it started trending till I realised it wasn’t actually a trending topic but just something most likely started by someone with a large number of followers. By this time of course, it had started trending and I had been privy to some very hilarious (as well as some downright ridiculous) takes on it. Then of course there were those who gave detailed breakdowns of their plans for the hypothetical sum. I suspect some would have shared 10-year business plans if they weren’t constrained by the 140 character twitter limit but then again would we be able to blame them? It’s quite the hefty sum, really.
@bisijewel’s “i will build a software that will automatically tweet wot’s on my mind #ifihad30millionNaira” tweet stuck out to me as particularly funny as well as @zumatu saying: #IfIHad30MillionNaira I wld send for my boss order him 2 sit down nd fart in his face, revenge 4 all d silent fart he gives us durin meetins.
But that aside, I personally haven’t thought about what I’d do if I had such an amount of money. Okay. That’s a lie. I have. As I’m sure most of you have as well.
So pray, tell, what would YOU do if you had 30 million naira? Join the conversation on twitter with the hashtag #ifihad30millionNaira. You never know, someone just might be watching and waiting to grant your wish.
